If you want to read about heroines who are unapologetic and bold I direct you to Kelly Bowen s Duke of My Heart If you want to read about heroines who would do anything for their family and livelihoods I direct you to Loretta Chase s Silk is for Seduction or Elizabeth Hoyt s Duke of MidnightIf you want to read about heroines who have real courage Lorraine Heath s When the Duke was Wicked or Courtney Milan s Once Upon a MaruessJust don t read this bookI don t care about characters being likable or decent I just want characters to be well written and at the very least not petty brats In the historical romance genre I generally have a VERY high tolerance for both heroines and heroes where others may call heroines naive or stupid or heroes being assholes a majority of them usually are let s be real I usually tend to give heroines the benefit of the doubt at least that they are the product of their era So this is TRULY a first for me that I ve come to truly dislike probably hate a heroine in a historical romance novel Honor Cabot is the stepdaughter of the Earl of Beckington along with her 3 other younger sisters Grace Prudence and Mercy Her mother is suffering from dementia and the Earl is sickly Honor s stepbrother Augustine the heir is engaged to Monica Hargrove and Honor believes that Monica will throw her her sisters and mother out when she marries Augustine Honor believes this because of a petty feud between the two girls since they were children where their dance instructor favored Monica over Honor Monica dislikes Honor because she feels like Honor has everything and is popular pretty and charming It is honestly the most petty frivolous stupid feud ever Monica isn t so bad actually because she is never really that developed a character but we do get enough on her that we know she isn t the monster Honor built her up in her head to be So Honor concocts a truly stupid and downright cruel plan to divert Monica away from marrying her stepbrother by getting the hero George Easton to perhaps lure her away Never mind that the plan is pretty stupid doesn t solve anything long term and will probably fail it is born out of such selfish cowardly and cruel reasons 1 Augustine while not the brightest bulb is actually kind to Honor and her sisters2 Augustine and Monica truly care for each other 3 Why couldn t Honor speak to Augustine about her fears and talk to him like a functioning normal adult It is not like Augustine is an unreasonable monster Now Honor s sister Grace says that one of the ways in which they can continue to care for their mother properly is if they marry well and then their husbands would take care of their sisters and mother Honor doesn t want to do this I can understand this bit she doesn t want to lose her one shred of freedom by becoming a wife But at the same time you aren t that convinced about this because Honor is far focused on plotting against Monica as well as flouncing around in her dresses and spitefully buying bonnets Monica wants George the hero points out that Honor just wants to upkeep her privileged lifestyle and honestly I don t think he s that far off I never really see Honor doing any hands on work to care for her mother Grace seems to be the only one giving a shit about their mother This is all in the text by the way I was wondering if I was being too hard on Honor so I made the point of highlighting passages for myself that showed that Grace was the only one who actually looks out for their motherSo is Honor scheming out of desperate filial piety towards her mother No shit she is not What is happening here is a bitchy spiteful little plan Never mind that I don t really care about Monica because she s only marginally less petty than Honor We KNOW that Monica cares about Augustine and wants to marry him and vice versa It s pretty gross for a sister to mess with her brother s life like that for such selfish reasons Her only option is not only to marry and lose her freedom There were other things she could have tried to do before jumping down this path Aside from Honor s dreadful personality and lack of character or principles or common sense for that matter she and George also have no romantic chemistry and there is no real development or pacing to their relationship It is very poorly developed and written They have plenty of sexual chemistry and they have very sexy scenes on balconies and other semi public places that are very hot but because they lack romantic chemistry none of these scenes truly hold any impact or carry any weight in the development of their relationship George is also very boring and uninteresting Conceptually he seems to be a gem of a historical romance hero one where you can make him all intense and brooding as he is the bastard son of a Duke and has a massive chip on his shoulder because society shuns him Also even though Honor is but a stepdaughter of an Earl and cannot hope to marry first sons she is also of the ton and George has angst that she is above him Typical stuff but still can be mined for emotional angst right No This never happens George whines a little here and there in his head about how he can never have Honor that he can never escape from the shadow of his past but that s pretty much where it stays He is a stagnant character And even up to the end of the book he keeps going on and on and on about how no one would let them marry because of his status Does he try to fight for their love No At least I will give Honor that she fights with him for their love Oh and he gambles Gambling is one of the worst most deplorable vices to me It ruins lives and families and meanwhile towards the end of the book George gambles IN FRUSTRATION to win her back Like that has EVER worked Also one of his first encounters with Honor he pretty much feels her up without permission and that is just gross and wrong Julia London keeps going on and on about how the two of them are so perfect for each other because they are bold unafraid unapologetic brave risk taking and that they don t care what society thinks about them but I don t think she knows what all that really means Honor is not bold or brave just because she goes around making out with men at public places or playing cards like a man What she is doing is really very selfish suandering money she could have saved to help her mother while also risking her sisters reputations and ruining their chances and prospects Prudence and Mercy are not even yet out in society Oh and another thing besides the fact that Mercy has very macabre tendencies and Prudence is very proper we also never really get a sense of who the other sisters are certainly not who Grace is even though Grace is the sister that features most nor do we get the sense of sisterhood or familial relationship between the sisters or their mother After all this I actually felt that George and Honor were perfect for each other even if I couldn t tell at all that they re in love They re both uninteresting mean spirited selfish silly people that deserve each other
