Billy saves Jacinda when she is running away from home and ends up in the bad part of town. Dawn Jan 29, I picked this book as my first Gaelen Foley because it had such great reviews, and having loved the tough-guy heroes in Lisa Kleypas’s [b: Well, he is and he isn’t. The early scenes, where he’s running a band of thieves, are better than the later ones, where he’s emerged as the son of a marquis.
Over all, he is very sexy and larger than life, but he’s no Derek Craven. Lady Lucinda Knight, the heroine, is really too young and silly for him, but she matures at a rather amazing rate as the story progresses.
I haven’t read the books that precede this one, but the Knight brothers looks like a fun and fascinating group. I’ll probably check out at least [b: LadyWesley Sep 25, I have to continue to gaelne Ms.
She has taken on subjects that many would not consider acceptable for a romance. This story is no exception. In this story she takes us to the tenements and rookeries of London after the Battle of Waterloo. The poverty and gy of this period was profound. The descriptions of the squalor in which so many lived in is at times very hard to read, so be warn.
Foley also bring to our attention the issue of child abuse. The scene of William “Billy Blade” Albright being abused by his father is graphic and dramatic. It is going to be something that some readers are not going to be able to handle, so be warn. In many ways I have to admire Billy Blade and the things desife he tried to accomplish in his part of the rookeries he lived in. He tried to teach those that he cared for how to live.
He tried to feed them gaelne improve the conditions around those same people. I was surprised that he continued to read and educate himself once he became a leader of his gang.
I was pleased that yb was so chivalrous to Jacinda when he found her in the alley. He tried to do what was honorable even if Jacinda did realize it at the time. Billy has a sharp mind, cunning instincts, and a bone deep honor. He is also compassionate and caring to those that he cares about.
I was glad that he followed Jacinda’s counsel and made peace with his father. Billy is the perfect tortured alpha male. Jacinda Knight is in many ways a spoiled society debutante but there is a core to her that only wants to find someone to care for her and give her a chance to enjoy life.
She has grown up with five overbearing brothers that are determined to protect and see her settle with someone that will keep her in line. She has lived with the fear that she will turn out just like her mother. That of course is ridiculous. There is nothing set in stone concerning one behavior. With the guiding hand of her brother Robert she turns out to be a remarkable young lady. She is a sportswoman and a excellent shot with rifle and pistol.
She is quick witted, compassionate, and very loyal to her family and friends. She is a very likable heroine. This story is a wonderful example of the historical romance genre.
The characters are lovable and flawed.
