From the beginning this story
Wasn T Very Captivating I t very captivating I consistently losing interest in the plot Nothing drew me into the story there was no addiction to find out the characters fates Usually with historical romances I devour them in 1 3 days this one seemed to take forever for me to get throughDespite this the story did have a few redeeming ualities I like the dowager viscountess She was unappreciated yet witty and sharp Miss Jane Dresden the protagonist was a bit dumb Her actions from the beginning were just plain stupid I d have a better appreciation for the story if Jane who later goes by Jenny had a least a bit of common sense There wasn t anything awful about Viscount Haven Gerry that stood out to me He was a likable sort of male protagonist another misunderstood sortI think if there had been compromising situations this story would have been less dry and a lot xcitingI received this book from Netgalley for this honest review LORD HAVENS DECEPTION is charming Lots of misunderstanding and superfluous characters WonderfulAbsolutely loved this book Great writing style and characters Excitingintriguing and romantic Could not put this book down by Donna Lea Simpson Jane has been told that she is to be married to Viscount Haven whom she has heard is cruel Promising her mother to try to make it work for three months she travels with her aunt towards her future husband But when she arrives at a local inn the night before they are to reach the Viscount she decides she can t do it and goes on the run Leaving behind clues that seem as if she has been kidnapped she goes out on the Moors and stumbles across a barn where she s taken in by the *Widow Who Lives There Mary *who lives there Mary also a good friend of Gerry aka Lord Haven and when Gerry and Jane meet sparks immediately fly But neither knows whom the other is and when their deception is lifted will they still want Black Boy each otherLet me start with what I did like I reallynjoyed Gerry he s kind and considerate and has Nighttime Sweethearts emotions I also like Jane she takes her destiny in her own hands She s willing to do and learn what she needs in order to survive I also like the idea of Gerry and Jane Both hate the ton both prefer a simple life over the glitter of society There were however aspects of the novel I wasn t as taken with First of all both Jane and Gerry turn out to be complete nitwits Especially in the second part of the novel I really wanted to just grab and shake them Also this story heavily relies on false information and miscommunication which are not my favorite themes in HR novelsNot written for HR readers like me but none the less.
