Characters Scandal Author Amanda Quick

Seems to embody everything Emily has ever dreamed of in a man But Simon Augustus Traherne the mysterious Earl of Blade is not all that he seemsDriven by dark smoldering passions and a tragic secret buried deep within his soul Blade has all of London cowering at his feet but no. I am laughing so hard as I think of this book and what to write Look I used to devour Amanda uick s older books with the one word description and usually a random object on the cover There were some that were really good And there were some that may be wonder about the intelligence of the heroheroine involved Scandal is definitely the latter You have a sort of reformed rake trope taking place here though the hero is not really a rake he s just an out and out ass with a naive heroine that believes that love transcends everything Seriously learn to love the phrases higher plane and cast adrift on love s transcendent golden shore Also she calls or thinks of the hero as a dragon so learn to love that word as well as the word elf that the hero calls the heroineThe heroine in Scandal is Emily Faringdon Emily is an aspiring writer her epic poem sounds awful by the way and thinks she is going to forever lead a solitary life in the countryside due to a scandal where the title comes from in her past When Emily was younger she ran away to get married and then realized on the way what a bad idea it was Emily was not found til the next day so of course in Regency era times this means she is considered an indiscreet young woman which no man would offer for This suits Emily s father since he just uses Emily in order to have her keep him and her two twin brothers Charles and Devlin afloat due to her investment schemes Emily starts up a correspondence with a man claiming to have her love of literature and then one days he announces he will be staying at a neighbor s home and they can finally meet Emily meets Simon Traherne also known as the Earl of Blade Simon has his own reasons for pursuing Emily and it s all about revengeSo Emilyis kind of tedious and aggravating When Emily finally meets Simon she decides that they are soul mates I refuse to go back and look to see if that phrase is used and even when she is told why Simon is pursuing her and wants to marry her to avenge himself on her father she still marries the guy It was beyond ridiculous Who marries someone who tells you that your father was responsible for his father committing suicide and you are part of his master plan to get revenge on all people who wronged himIt baffles me throughout this book how cruel Simon is again and again to Emily and she is all but I know that he loves me so this makes it okay I kept half hoping Emily would brain him with something And though I had a small smidgen of sympathy towards Simon because of what happened to him and his mother due to his father s suicide him going after in some cases the children of the men who wronged him gets you over that real uickSimon sucks Seriously I don t know what in the world made Emily even want to be with the guy besides the fact she kept saying they had a metaphysical connection Simon the day after their wedding forbids her to see her father or her twin brothers again I know back in Regency days you couldn t divorce but I hated the fact that uick has Emily decide to not be physically with Simon again after his announcement and then has her run off Simon thinks eventually Emily will be too curious about sex with him to not want to do it again and he will end up winning his way Due to Simon spending time in the East and no that is the way it is referred to in the book he has strange notions about revenge sins of the father and apparently knows karate Or Judo Or Kung Fu I honestly did not get his movements at all though at one time uick references Simon chopping someone in the neck with his hand and I died laughing for five minutes Iron Fist this guy is notWe have other characters in Scandal and Emily s father is terrible How she ignores it also drives me up a wall There s a resolution about that guy at the end which made me smile But I would have been happy with sharks being in play at some point Emily s brother get some detail but not much in this one and it would have been nice to follow up with both of them in subseuent booksThe plot in this one is really thin though Due to Emily s past no one is to refer to her scandal and Simon is so powerful he believes he can suelch any commentary about it with threats or favors Frankly I don t really get why this would matter in Regency days marriage fixes everything or so most of the romance books I read had me believe And there s a secondary plot that involves Emily s secret being discovered that is only a couple dozen pages Honestly most of the book is just Emily and Simon having sex Simon being nasty Emily being obtuse about his terribleness and Emily deciding that love will see them throughThe writing at times was super hilarious though Maybe because I cannot believe anyone back then spoke like this It felt like very bad stage directions were being given to actors a few timesSimon gently refolded the letter and sat gazing into the fire After a moment s contemplation he reached out to pick up the beautifully enameled Chinese teapot that sat on a nearby table He poured the Lap Seng into a gossamer thin cup decorated with a green and gold dragon As he started to lift the cup he paused studying the figure of the mythical beastThe remainder of the comment was lost as Simon pivoted swiftly in the graceful movements of the ancient fighting art he had learned in the East He knew his unorthodox potentially lethal method would have astounded the young bloods who practiced boxing at Gentleman Jackson s academy They would have been even perplexed by the elaborate techniues for establishing mental discipline and control that the monks had taught along with the physical skillsI can t help it this whole book just makes me shake my head We hear about references to China monks the East and whatnotThe flow was up and down throughout Like I said there was very little plot with this one unlike with other uick books so you are just really waiting for the hero to stop being a jerk and just fall in love with the heroine already Or at least I wasI do love Regency era books though I think I get a kick out of them just because I cannot imagine a society like that nowadays Of course you realize this was what Polite Society in England did back then but still these books always give you a good peek at themThis is a romance novel so of course realize there is a HEAI read this for Romance Bingo 2017 and this book fits the regency romance suare

Scandal Author Amanda Quick

T Emilynever Emily For even as she surrenders to his seductive charms she knows the real reason for his amorous suit And she knows that she must reach the heart of this golden eyed dragon before the avenging demons of their entwined pasts destroy the only love she has ever know. In all the Amanda uick books I have read s far this was a bit different I had some issues with the charactersBut as usual Amanda uick delivered yet another great bookOne of my biggest issues with the book was the main characters especially the heroine the only word that comes to mind when I think of Emily is Gullible Naivete doesn t even measure up in the story they make it seem that she only sees the good in people and even the main guy wants her t face reality I thought her harshest reality was him I really hated the idea of her worshiping him and to the public eye she s like a pet waiting for the crock of his finger which is exactly what some other characters described her It s not that she looked fearless to me it s that she have an image f another guy in her head At first they communicated about literature for several months then he marries a gave her a reality check several times that he s cold hearted and he didn t even love or like her that shes a means to an end Yet she still clung to the idea that they are linked in spiritual ways that not everyone can reach Honestly it got on my nerves most of the time I just wanted to strangle her oh yeah plus her total adoration and devotion to him t the degree that she would have shot someone for himThe only thing I have to say about Simon is that he was one asshole of a jerk granted he succumbed to her whims at times but those times aren t worth all the criticism and the hurtful things her said to her and I hated that he only told her he loved her at the very very very end I loved the idea that most of the staff were former pirates and the sort and how all of them in their own way worshiped and adored EmilyLoved how her twin brothers started to look up at him in the manner of hero worshipingOverall other than what I have stated about the main characters it a thumps up
