õ Read Û Beguiled by Shannon Drake ✓ Strano, pens Solo poche settimane prima Ally non era che una vaga promessa fatta a suo padre Ora invece Era tutto per lui Nessuno doveva farle del male Non riusciva pi a immaginare la sua vita senza di lei Terzo e ultimo libro che chiude pi che degnamente questa bella trilogia D Il secondo libro mi aveva un po delusa, ma con questo siamo tornati ai livelli del primo, con cui tra l altro ha in comune il richiamo ad una fiaba mentre sparisce l ambientazione egizia che nel primo era la bella e la bestia mentre qui chiaramente la bella addormentata nel bosco infatti nella prima met del libro abbiamo una giovane bellissima e gentile, allevata da tre dolci anziane in una casetta in mezzo ai boschi Un giorno la ragazza che in realt una principessa viene invitata ad un ballo, le tre nonne le cuciono un bellissimo vestito e le tre madrine In this series each book was better than the last Unfortunately the entire series focuses on something I ve never been interested in Mystery I hate mystery novels I always have I enjoyed how independent each woman was, and how their men had to learn to adjust Mr Mark had to learn that you shouldn t marry someone just to control them That s messed up. Ally Grayson Never Wanted To Be A Heroine She Dreamed Of Writing Great Stories, Not Living In A Fairy Tale But When She S Abducted By A Charming Highwayman Right Out Of A Novel, Ally Finds Herself Thoroughly Enchanted No Matter That She S Betrothed To Another Or That She Has No Intention Of Binding Herself In An Arranged Marriage AnywayBut When Mark, Her Burdensome Fianc , Is Revealed To Be None Other Than The Rogue Of Her Dreams, Ally Must Make A Choice Plunge Into A World Of Murder And Deceit Without A Protector, Or Place Her Trust In The Man Who Lies To Her But Makes Her Heart Sing I love Heather Graham and this was my first time trying out Shannon Drake It was not a bad read but I do prefer the Graham novels better, perhaps due to being a different genre I did enjoy the characters that were added to this book such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Queen Victoria Even though this was a fictional book it was nice to see that the author actually knew enough about the location and the time to be able to incorporate actual people into the story line. It was ok I liked the mystery part of this book Too obviously derivative of Sleeping Beauty a blond, beautiful secretly princess living in the forest in a charming cottage with three aunts Did not interest me, but I finished it hoping it d get better Blah. An intense book full of romance and mystery Loved it Unnecessary editing errors for example, how did Lord Wittburg end up in Lord Farrow s carriage p 251.
All I have to say is that if I ever get kidnapped I hope it would turn out something like this book The story was itself was whimsical and the level of intensity was flat up until the end I would call this CPD or Can t put down You can easily read it and leave it then come back Although the story had a great amount of mystery and puzzle solving and murders the writing just didn t really bring it to life The Protagonist the Heroine was a lot of fun interaction as they bicker but I thought the Author got lazy in the love scenes, the description didn t really make the read understand what the lovers where thinking It felt like a quick pass over I know it can get tedious when a couple has sex constantly but in this case they didn t In which case the first time they came together should have felt profound which is why I rated at 3 stars It also felt as if the Author was playing it to
