Shelves: uk , awesome-guy , jericho-fucking-barrons , romance , regency This book makes me smile. It left me with a goofy grin and eyes misted over with stupid unshed tears. It makes me want to believe in starlit kisses, in moonlit romance. It makes me want my own fairy tale.
You can try to push me. I will never betray him. So sit tight. I want that hotel, I want to find him, and I want this over. I want my life back. So come on, kid. My house is on the hill. So many ways in, and good luck finding your way out. Time to see mine. She has no idea how bad this can get.
But I was wrong. Prison only gave him time to plan. It is not a pretty castle. It is one of those evil, lurching, looming, scary ones. It comes with scary noises Once again, she woke to darkness, her heart pounding with terror and her throat scraped raw. Strange noises assailed her from all sides. As well as bats.
Lots and lots of bats. Bats that turn a potentially romantic interlude No choice. He lowered his head and made his voice a seductive whisper.
An entire colony of them had been roosting in the highest reaches of the canopy. Now they took wing one by one, then ten by ten Clearly, the castle, like its master, needs a whooooooole lot of maintenance to get shipshape. Izzy: You know Alice Liddel? Little Alice who inspired Alice in Wonderland? Izzy is like that. She is famous. She has been written into her father's very famous fairy tales, and the whole of England knows about her. But like Alice, nobody wants to read about Izzy Goodnight as a grown up, with her own hopes and dreams.
They want to think of Izzy Goodnight as a sweet little girl, forever a child, forever a fantasy. They wanted her to be the wide-eyed young girl of the stories. That way, they could continue to read and reread their beloved tales, imagining themselves in her place. Reality is harsher than that. Izzy is not that little girl.
She is a strong, determined woman. Izzy is not a faint-hearted girl, but she is not a timid little thing. She may be strong, but she is never, ever a bitch.
That is what I love about her. Izzy has so much inner strength. She is scared of a lot of things, she has had a challenging life, with a neglectful father and a nation who wants her to remain a little girl for all of eternity. Izzy used to dream of fantasies, of a love sprung from fairy tales. She is no longer that little girl.
Izzy, the woman is all grown up, with a backbone made of steel. He might be wealthy, powerful, angry, and big. But on at least one score, Izzy had him outmatched. She knew how to handle prickly creatures, and she knew how to make the best of a less-than-ideal situation.
When thrown in the pond, she learned how to swim. Ransom: You rusual dark, brooding duke, but he is just so loveable.
He is never a brute. He growls, he snarls, but he never, ever crosses the boundaries. Ransom is all bark, no bite. He wanted to throw her out, the castle is his, after all, but Ransom has a heart, no matter if it has been broken. He cannot throw Izzy out. Ransom is gentler than he lets on.
But was this truly all that was left of him? A cruel, unfeeling brute who would cast a defenseless young woman out into the night?
Not yet. Ransom, like most Beastly Dukes, have a scarred past. He doesn't allow himself to be loved. It was so foreign to him, this unsolicited tenderness. And much as he craved it, it scared him like hell.
With every caress he permitted, he was piling up debts he could never repay. They lived in his blood, resounding with each hollow beat of his heart. You never could.
But insidiously, without him realizing it, Izzy, with her wild mane and her good heart and gentle nature, finds her way into his home and his heart. And they're pretty much the same thing. And he's not budging. Ransom Vane intends to find the castle's rumored treasure.
After a life marked by hardship and betrayal, he deserves it--far more than any sheltered English miss. Except Izzy is no gullible girl; she's intelligent, tenacious, and tempting beyond reason. With her wits and his brawn, they could find the priceless relics. All he needs to do is resist the urge to care for her. A simple task.
