    This sounded like a cute story when I got it The heroine had inherited all the family money, and intended to set off on an adventure Except her adventure sounded really strange Why would a gently raised rich young woman decide to take a bunch of lovers This intention just was Not motivated, to my satisfaction, anyway Then, since she s going to pretend to be a widow, to take all these lovers, she decides she needs to get her virginity out of the way But the hero of the story an impoverishe This sounded like a cute story when I got it The heroine had inherited all the family money, and intended to set off on an adventure Except her adventure sounded really strange Why would a gently raised rich young woman decide to take a bunch of lovers This intention just was Not motivated, to my satisfaction, anyway Then, since she s going to pretend to be a widow, to take all these lovers, she decides she needs to get her virginity out of the way But the hero of the story an impoverished nobleman has decided he needs a rich wife, and the heroine is the one he s set his mind on She just wants him to relieve her of her inconvenient virginity She runs away from him to England, he encounters her there, and continues his courtship Which isn t particularly court y He manipulates her, takes her off to his country estate and won t let her leave, etc., etc., and a whole lot of etc There s a whole lot of nooky going on in the middle of this book, plus a spanking scene which I did not find at all reasonable that she would wind up Liking it But then, while I realize some might like spanking, it is Totally not my thing, most especially when it begins as punishment I simply can t conceive that it could somehow turn into something erotic So that s probably just that it ain t my kink Mostly, though, I found all the sex really boring There wasn t enough other stuff that didn t annoy me to keep me interested It was okay I read the whole book
