Aug 11, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies rated it it was amazing Shelves: to-review. This book is about a cross between Jane Eyre and the Anastasia legend, with a Mary Sue as a main character and so much Angst yes, it needs to be capitalized that you can cut it with a knife, and I won't deny I loved every fucking moment of it.
Lisa Kleypas writes feeeeeeeeeelings and angst and tortured heroes and heroines so well. No matter how much I dislike her characters, her writing is absolutely superb. She is among the best HR writers that I've ever read. How is it like Jane Eyre? Orphan This book is about a cross between Jane Eyre and the Anastasia legend, with a Mary Sue as a main character and so much Angst yes, it needs to be capitalized that you can cut it with a knife, and I won't deny I loved every fucking moment of it.
Orphan girl beautiful and not plain becomes a governess to a dark, tortured man 2. Said tortured man is has a physical defect a missing hand! But that doesn't hurt his prowess in bed! Heroine is governess to an odd girl without a mother, and with a father who loves her but doesn't know what the fuck to do with a little girl 4. Paranormal elements! Possible murder!
A scene with a fortune teller! A beautiful society woman who is Out To Steal the Tortured Man from our very young, innocent but irresistible governess. Spoiler alert: she fails!
How is it like Anastasia? Russian shit everywhere! Missing Russian princess who has to hide her identity! People is out to kill her! Upon a reread, it was just as good as the first time, which is more than I can say for many books. View all 20 comments. Nov 21, Beth rated it it was ok Shelves: tnbbc-winter , , russian , historical-romance. This book had several elements of a bad soap opera: selective amnesia, opium abuse, a homosexual love triangle, psychic abilities, child molestation, crazy Russian kin and a tiger.
Yes, a tiger. The first half of the book flew by and was quite enjoyable but the second half fell to pieces once ridiculous antic aft This book had several elements of a bad soap opera: selective amnesia, opium abuse, a homosexual love triangle, psychic abilities, child molestation, crazy Russian kin and a tiger.
The first half of the book flew by and was quite enjoyable but the second half fell to pieces once ridiculous antic after ridiculous antic ensued. Him: Lord Lucas Stokehurst. Loved his dead wife and has sworn to never love again. Missing a hand and wears a hook in its place. Doting father to a fiery-haired pre-teen daughter, Emma. Her: Lady Anastasia Kaptereva.
Russian exile. Flees to England and lands a role as governess to Emma Stokehurst. Makes Stokehurst feel like he's alive again. They fell in love. Made out a few times. Played some nekkid games. The chemistry was weak, hence the bla-bla-bla.
It was pretty lame. View all 13 comments. Jul 15, Rane rated it it was ok Shelves: victorian-era , historical , regency-napoleonic-era. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. With no way out then death, Tasia takes a potion to fake her death and travels to England to try and start her life over on the run. When his close friends tell Luke Stokehurst they found a perfect governess for his wild-child daughter, he dismisses it with a shrug only to be stopped in his tracks at the sight of this beautiful young woman with amazing eyes and a past hidden in the mist.
Tasia feels drawn to Luke, but knows her past deeds will no doubt catch up with her in the end. Only her heart keeps her from running away and has her running toward Luke.
Luke and Tasia fight their past pains as they struggle to find the happiness they know they can only find in each other. As a couple I never felt a true connection between Tasia and Luke. He never trys to comfort her into understanding why he asks these things of her from not contacting her mother etc, he only tells her what to do period.
Never seeing it from her side, as of a young woman lost and alone from her homeland, scared out of her wits and trying to come to grips with the things around her. Even when he knows she loves him he still acts like a jealous fool toward the end of the story making it drag even more.
I felt was totally unnecessary and kinda on the yick factor of gross. The pace afterward went down hill, and pretty much everything else in the book was predictable with nothing really holding my attention with parts that only annoyed me greatly. View all 19 comments.
Sep 24, Kelly rated it it was amazing Shelves: read , favorites. Lisa Kleypas has done it again! A simple love story that has won a place among my favorite shelves! This tale reminds me of some of my all time favorite love stories, Romeo and Juliet with the sleep potion, The Bronze Horseman for the Russian elements that were very interesting and described perfectly Though Tasia is not studying for the nunnery her faith is strong and she does become a nanny The Sound of Music also comes to my mind!
Luke is so in love with Tasia that I was jealous! As wit Lisa Kleypas has done it again! As with most Kleypas' books the ease to which I become attached to her characters is effortless. I just fall and fall hard. I couldn't put this one down. Loving every moment that Tasia and Luke spend together.
