is definitely worth it Her second book Marriage Upon Terms is here definitely worth it Her second book Marriage Upon Terms is here takes us back into the same well researched Regency world The two heroes Robert Deverell and Sir Edward Gilbert were friends of Harry and Rafe and this is their story Marriage Upon Terms is beautifully written and there are no Americanisms or glaring is beautifully written and there are no Americanisms or glaring of period references We are i I had to stop reading this at 46% Despite being well written and the main female leads likeable and their circumstances compelling I found the male lead Dev abhorrent and that utterly wrecked the romance for me At this point I don t care if Dev crawls and grovels to Lizzy further down the line he cheated on her after their marriage and it is clear that he has made a sport of manipulating and seducing married women and possibly worse attempts to use the same techniues with his wife in order to regain an upper hand His treatment of her consistently veers back to being abhorrent even whilst his internal dialogue suggests he is conflictedI ve been spoiled by some excellent historical. Six years earlier tragedy changed the course of Robert Deverell's life Now another forces him to face up to the future and to promises he failed to keep Six years earlier Elizabeth Hamilton wasted her one season by falling hopelessly in love with Robert Deverell then her life was blighted by loss and poverty Now she must marry or find a post as a governess So when Mr Deverell himself offers her a marriage of convenience upon his terms she is dumbfounded But when she realises that.

Author Doesn T Repeat doesn t repeat vomitous male lead shtick 62120 Upped my rating from 1 star to 175 stars I m conflicted about giving this such a low rating but I hope my review will shed some light on the matterLet s start with what I enjoyed1 The writing I m by no means an expert on this time period but there wasn t anything glaringly out of place The storytelling was engaging and I liked the witty banter between the h and her best friend 2 The friendship between the MCs and
their respective friends They were loyal to one another and were always respective friends They were loyal to one another and were always to lend support or a helping hand3 Gil Oh my While Harry was the Bingley of the first book of this series The Reluctant Lady Gil was the Bingley of this one He was ust such a good guy sincere and steadfast and the only other one of the group of the H s friends who wasn t a rake4 There wasn t any owom dramaAnd now the rest1 This plot was boring and unoriginal It was basically about a traumatized youth turning to immoral ways to deal or not deal with his past He supposedly loved the h for a long time but had closed himself off to love Only she could fix him and bring him back to life 2 The H and most of his close friends are rakes And not the garden variet. This cool stranger is no longer the tender funny man she cannot forget Lizzy has a few terms of her own Both will need to surrender ground to rediscover the love they lost But even as Lizzy finds that 'her Robert' may still be alive within the cold Mr Deverell it seems that death still stalks her husband and perhaps even herself Rich in historical detail and determined characters this powerful romance will sweep you up into a love story and an adventure that you won't want to put.
