summary Invitation to Ruin Invitation To #1 Invitation to Ruin Invitation To #1 review Ä 3 read ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ê Bronwen Evans M like she'd make a very convenient wife After all she is so naive he won't have to worry about ever being tempted Or so he thinks until the vows are spoken and they are left alone and his new bride reveals a streak just as brazen and unrestrained as his own. Good book with some deeply emotional scenes Anthony is a well known rake who has made it clear that he will never marry His reputation has earned him the name Lord of Wicked When we first see him he is making a bet with his brother as to which of them will sleep with a particular woman first Even disturbing is his intention to stir the pot by dancing with the woman s innocent cousinMelissa wants nothing than to find a husband she can love and who will love her But her wastrel brother is determined to sell her off to the highest bidder for his own benefit Though she knows that Anthony is not the man for her she can t deny her attraction to him Her dance with him leaves her flustered and even enad of himThanks to interference and a bit of trickery Anthony ends up in Melissa s bed instead of Cassandra s which he doesn t realize until it s too late Anthony may be a rake but he is also an honorable man and proposes marriage He s a little surprised when she resists but he prevails The dilemma he faces is how to resist his attraction to herOverall I liked both Melissa and Anthony though Anthony took a while to win me over He comes across as very cold and manipulative at the beginning as he deceives Melissa about his plans for their marriage I began to soften toward him as of his background was revealed and how the horrors he experienced made him fear treating his own child the way he was treated Avoiding the prospect altogether seemed his only option Melissa was a terrific heroine She is feisty and independent determined to get the outcome she wants She is also a kind and caring woman as shown by the type of charity work she does I liked the way she doesn t just sit back and accept others decisions but stands up for her own needsI enjoyed the development of the relationship between Anthony and Melissa The sparks between them are strong from the beginning Anthony is determined to keep Melissa at a distance but she doesn t make it easy on him to the point where he uses some truly cruel methods to drive her away from him I loved that Melissa isn t uite so easy to drive away It takes her a few days but she realizes that while his words say one thing his body says something entirely different I loved the way she used her intellect to learn the ways of love to win him over It was great fun to see Anthony tormented by his desire for his wife to the point of being unable to carry on the way he had plannedThere were several misunderstandings between them brought about by their differing outlooks on life Melissa tends to see the good in people first and foremost and acts accordingly while Anthony always sees the worst The first major misunderstanding regarding the London slave market ended up showing that they had in common than they knew Sometimes their misunderstandings caused them to behave badly toward the other but eventually they would learn the truth and find ways to make amendsOne of the things I loved best about Melissa was her refusal to give up on Anthony The she learned about his past the she admired the way that he had overcome it even if he didn t think so I was in tears for her as he pushed her away in ways that did his best to destroy her dreams and make her hate him Even though it broke her heart she still couldn t stop loving him I ached for Anthony who was so consumed by guilt over things in his past that he couldn t see the things that he did right He really wanted to be the husband that Melissa deserved but believed that he was unredeemable I loved that it was his friends Samantha and Freddie who finally broke through his walls and how they showed him that he would never be like his father Having seen the light Anthony has to find a way to win back Melissa I loved seeing him expose his vulnerability to her Even I loved how she was able to make him see that it wasn t her forgiveness he needed I loved the epilogue and seeing the huge difference in Anthony and the happiness that radiates from them bothOne of the most unusual things about this book is that it deals with a subject rarely seen in Regency romances slavery I don t think I ve ever read a book that talked about the selling of black slaves in England during that time period I loved that both Melissa and Anthony were involved in fighting it though in vastly different ways There was an element of suspense in the book also as Anthony s fight became far personal than he ever expected My heart was in my throat as Melissa became the focal point of Anthony s greatest enemy The final confrontation was intense with several twists before the ultimate resolutionI thoroughly enjoyed Anthony s friends and relations and their determination to save him Though Richard and his mother s methods were underhanded they were effective I liked Richard s obvious love for his brother and his efforts to help Anthony and Melissa after their marriage Rufus intrigues me and I look forward to reading his book as well as Richard s Star Wars The Force Awakens #3 reveals a streak just as brazen and unrestrained as his own.

summary Invitation to Ruin Invitation To #1 Invitation to Ruin Invitation To #1 review Ä 3 read ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ê Bronwen Evans One Good Lady Is About to Go BadThe only thing Miss Melissa Goodly has ever wanted out of a marriage is love But any hope of that dissolves one wild night when she loses herself in the arms of the most irresistible and unobtainable man in all of England For. I m not sure what happened with this book All I know is that it was emotionally draining It was the worst type of romance in that the hero Anthony Craven Earl of Wickham is an unreformed rake and a true devil to the heroine Miss Melissa Goodly until the very last part of the book I felt angry for most of the book and so emotionally distraught for the heroine BACKGROUNDAt a ball Melissa withdraws from the evening affair early to her bed For Melissa it s always been Anthony but she s disappointed because she sees how Anthony only has eyes for her widowed cousin Cassandra who is known for her wiles in bed Cassandra is a real witch to Melissa btw Anthony is in hot pursuit of Cassandra who he wants as his next mistress Anthony is wild himself and not interested in settling down in marriageLIKE EVERSo Anthony is set up by his twin brother Richard and partly dowager mother to enter into Melissa s room by mistake Richard and his mother have chosen Melissa because she is so good and they believe she can help Anthony heal from the damages of an abusive childhood Richard gives Anthony directions to Melissa s room instead of Cassandra s So Anthony goes in and ravages Melissa and gets caught in this compromising position This ends up sealing the fate of both Anthony and Melissa Anthony manages to convince Melissa to marry him even though she doesn t want to The reason being that she wants to marry for love and she knows that Anthony will never commit nor love her OH THE TORTUREFrom this point on the reader is spoon fed an anemic partly starved development of love between the leads Anthony is moody and switches between treating Melissa with warmth and humiliationemotional abuse alike Anthony behaves this way because he is dealing with the severe emotional and physical abuse he received on behalf of his father a notorious slave trader As a child his father was trying to crush Anthony emotionally so that he could also be a terrible slave ownertrader Although Anthony rejects the slave trade and changes the family business completely He still carries visual images and emotional scars that run deep This is why he can t allow himself to love He fights the developing love he begins to feel for Melissa like it s an enemy to his soul For this reason he lashes out at her makes her feel inferior verbally degrades her makes her believe he is sleeping with whores every night and lies to her about a major assumption he let her believe she would enjoy upon marrying him THE HEROINEMelissa Goodly is probably the most emotionally abused heroine on behalf of the hero I have ever read She develops this core of strength within her character and holds herself together when Anthony lashes out at her OMG I felt so bad for her countless times Usually I like to list some of the sweet or romantic interactions between the leads but in this book I could easily outline the horrible things Anthony did to Melissa throughout the book THINGS I HATED Hero s Treatment of Heroine I hated how Anthony embraced Cassandra in front of Melissa and stroked her back trying to console her after he was betrothed to Melissa I hated how Anthony got jealous and left Melissa at the ball after he saw her talking to his brother in the garden later he did apologize I hated how he threatened to take back the promise to not bed Cassandra when he was angry with Melissa I hated how he left her on their marriage night and announced it in front of his intimate guests in the drawing room that he was going to his gamingwhore club and not spending his wedding night with her I hated it how he refused to be near her post marriage he avoided her for about 4 freaken weeks in their same house I hated how he refused to have sex with Melissa and made her feel like trash when she tried to seduce him when in fact after his betrothal to Melissa he only wanted her but like a SUPER JERK he fights his love for his wife I hated how he made Melissa believe that he was with a whore every night after their wedding even though he was actually faithful to her Believe me I m just getting started with this list in how the Hero abused the heroinethere is so much DISTURBING THEMES OF THE BOOKI m not sure why Evans wrote this novel this way In this regency romance there is so much evil and it builds in layers The evil comes from inside the characters and most of all the evil is embedded in society s treatment of woman and slaves 1 Marriage as a form of slavery There is a comparison drawn between marriage and it s impact on a woman in relation to slavery at the time That is a woman is a slave and property of her husband under marriage just as black people were slaves and subject to their masters in society During the ball scenes you get the sense that no one is happy The fate of the beautiful debutants and married women alike is subject to the absolute power of these gentlemen in society who are a law unto themselves 2 Slavery OK both the leads are diametrically opposed to slavery They work within their own ways to try and stop it But I got the sense that this nice uality is like a bone the author threw to readers to try and balance the hero s abominable treatment of his heroine There are some very gory awful stomach aching descriptions of how black girlswomen salves were abused And there was very little hope injected in this area Thankfully one of the redeeming features was when Anthony finds Melissa at a slave auction and helps her free two women slaves that was really great3 Gaming HellsCourtesanMen Clubs Ok the men freuent these clubs that have naked courtesan s pleasuring themselves with an audience as the men play card games And this is the norm for the men in this book All of them both the noble men ie Richard and Rufus Anthony s good friend love these places It s not frowned upon it s uite the norm Well this also made me sick even though Anthony freuented this disgusting place he didn t sleep with anyone because he was pinning for his wife 4 Have you ever read a book where the heroine is abducted by the villain who is absolutely evil incarnate and ends up forced to give him a BJ before she is saved by her hero NO Well me neither I was disgusted 5 Also have you ever read a novel where the villains have sex scenes than the leads I have not BTW the sex scenes between the villains are disgusting and awful I mainly skipped through this part RESOLUTIONSI suppose even though I found this book disturbing I kept reading because I wanted to see if Anthony and Melissa would finally find their HEA Well they did It was only after Melissa was abducted and her ASS of a husband completely reforms himself So if the majority of the book was anemic on the romance part the end of the book throws a feast at you The problem is that as a reader you re so used to being spoon fed sweets in small portions it s hard to feel any type of satisfaction and to digest the HEA But ultimately there are intimate healing scenes between the leads way at the end of the book where Anthony gives himself completely to Melissa heart body and soul From this point on Anthony adores the ground Melissa walks on He can t get enough of her and is the perfect husband Melissa is of course vindicatedpoor girl

summary Invitation to Ruin Invitation To #1 Invitation to Ruin Invitation To #1 review Ä 3 read ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ê Bronwen Evans When they are discovered in a position as compromising as it is pleasurable she has no choice but to accept his proposal Avowed bachelor Anthony Craven Earl of Wickham never meant to seduce an innocent like Melissa Yet now that the damage is done it does see. This book starts out with a mistaken identity rape of sleeping respectable girl instead of her slutty cousin Well it seems mistaken but it soon becomes uite clear that the hero has been set up by his TOTALLY INSANE family members to do this because they think this girl is right for him WTF moment 1At any rate this little horrorshow inevitably as this is a Regency romance leads to an engagement as opposed to prosecution But the hero is adverse to having children he doesn t want to pass on his father s legacy of abuse so he won t repeat his mistake with his fianceewife although he s been a total manslut to date WTF moment 2 While the hero and heroine are trying to establish their relationship a pair of perverted in graphic detail villainsslavers try to keep this pair apart by kidnapping the heroine in order to sell her as a sex slave The villains in this book are over the top in their awfulness and I was really put off by the detail about their sadistic sexual practices and also the horrible assault on the heroine which itself was sort of waved away by the characters at the end as a total nonissue in the final WTF moment of the book see spoilers for detailview spoilerNear the end of the book the villain perpetuates an sexual assault on the heroine Which is totally NOT DEALT WITH at all in the book the characters are all like Oh she wasn t raped thank God and the heroine is told and decides not even to tell her husband about it like being forced to give oral sex is really not rape rape to uote Whoopi Goldberg The emotional fallout from this sort of thing in the real world especially the Regency milieu when oral sex was probably considered sodomy or an act against nature would have been intense and IMO it should have been dealt with in some way during the denouement I m still getting hot face thinking about it hide spoiler
