Book Overview

Chapter One Late July, 1835. Near Glossup Hall, by Ashmore, Dorset. Hell and the devil Simon Cynster reined in his bays, his eyes narrowing on the ridge high above Ashmore village. The village proper lay just behind him; he was headed for Glossup Hall, a mile farther along the leafy country lane. At the rear of the village cottages, the land rose steeply; a woman was following the path winding up the berm of what Simon knew to be ancient earthworks...

The Best One Yet

Of all the Cynster novels this one is my favorite (so far). I remember thinking about Simon and Portia getting together when their brother and sister married and what an interesting story it would make - that's my favorite thing about the Cynster novels favorite characters make "guest" appearances and you get to meet them again. It's the only thing I wished had been part of this novel. The story flows well and I really like how Portia takes control - read it you won't regret it!

A personal favorite

I am really surprised at the low rating this book has received. I have read most of SL's books and this is one of the few I have kept. Not that her others are bad, they are all really good stories, but this one hooked me right from the start and I only put it down when I had to (I even read it in the tub, and I've never done that before!). I liked the fact that Simon and Portia didn't dance around their attraction to one another. Rather, they chose to give into it in a controlled manner to see if a relationship between two strong-willed people would be possible. None of this "you compromised me so we have to get married" nonsense that shows up in so many historical novels. Rather, Portia chooses how much intimacy they will have, and honestly admits that marriage is not a guaranteed outcome. I envied her for having a handsome, intelligent man willing to satisfy her curiosity at her pace. That they fall in love despite their assumptions that they wouldn't may be predictable (romance novels do have happy endings), but the way this confusing turn of events affects the couple and makes them learn more about themselves is fascinating. And those other reviews that make the book sound like a nonstop sexathon are ridiculous. They don't make love until halfway through the story, which is pretty late for many romance novels, and while there are several very steamy love scenes that follow, they all serve to clarify or deepen some aspect of the relationship. SL writes these moments as erotic and tender, not just the "position of the day". I'm very glad I trusted my history with this author more than the lopsided reviews here, or I might have missed out on of the best stories I have ever read.

Well I liked it!

What a range of reviews! Looking through them, it's a wonder we all read the same book. I thought this was a terrific addition to the Cynster series. Simon is tender and patient when Portia asks him to help educate her on the physical happenings between men and women, and it is clear that he truly cares for her. It is fun watching Portia get in over her head with what was supposed to be an "academic" experiment that quickly has her getting emotionally involved. I was also pulled into the murder mystery, and it doesn't distract from the developing relationship of the couple. And if you like hot, tender love scenes without a lot of flowery dialogue in the way, this is a book for you.

The Perfect Lover

With the history of the Cynster's behind this book, I knew it was going to be excellent. I was not disappointed.. I loved the Mystery as to "Who done it!"...I never would have figured this one out and I'm very good at that... I was captured from the first page to the very last. The Romance of Simon and Portia is awesome.. I was spell bound.
