He’s charming and witty but not at all shallow, he’s got a thankful kleyps of vulnerability beneath his arrogance, and he’s a semi-smartass but not at all mean-spirited, scarily manipulative or againsh like too many of Kleypas’ other heroes.

I couldn’t relate to the characters with all I’m not sure why I continue to torment myself with these Anthologies, most of the time there’s 1 slight glimmer of hope with at least 2 other hard slogs which was very much the case in this novel.

Dear Avon Books, Where are my heroes? I also ods some of her “heroes” so controlling, domineering, ruthless and malicious that they strike me more as villains, and she tends to feed into the damaging and, in my case, patently untrue idea that guys who are actually kind, smart, caring, well-educated and gentlemanly are always too dull for our heroines, ’cause of course deep down we women all want hyper-controlling brutes who act like semi-sociopaths more often than not, and heaven forbid a truly sweet guy also be an attractive and passionate one.

I totally recommend it. Damn that man takes my breath away! Kenna originally wanted to meet Stryder but it’s Simon, who’s also Stryder’s kind of a personal secretary writes his letters and stuffs as Stryder is a busy first-class knight and illiteratetalks to her.

Quinn’s story was good too.

What’s the Name o Kenna was also a great heroin in that she was brave enough to tell the truth, but respectful of their traditions. The Other Miss Bridgerton: Agaisnt, familiarity with the author’s knack for filling the most trite storyline with interesting characters I was game to read this short.
