Aug 20, Devz Milady rated it did not like it. Being an Indian and Hindu, it offends me seriously when Western authors sweep every different religion in the East under 1 carpet and takes a "holier-than-thou' attitude about it. Hinduism has nothing called Purdah, it doesnt condone Polygamy.

Nor does it allow treating a woman as anything less than a male's equal. The most famous representation of Lord Shiva and his wife- as Ardhanareeswara, is a testimony to this. Not to mention the fact that life of women in 19th century England wasn't such a pe Being an Indian and Hindu, it offends me seriously when Western authors sweep every different religion in the East under 1 carpet and takes a "holier-than-thou' attitude about it.

Not to mention the fact that life of women in 19th century England wasn't such a peach with no freedom, no right to property or anything. Moralizing is good - if you've got your facts right. May 01, fleurette rated it it was ok Shelves: dnf , historical-romance. To be completely honest, I could have finished it, I just completely saw no point in doing so. I lost my interest and didn't care about the characters. Also, the whole story is a bit ridiculous.

This is one of this stories that are longer than they should be. Let's start with the main characters - Ian and Georgiana. They are both paper-thin. If Ian doesn't develop any interesting parts of personality in the second part of the story and I seriously doubt it , there is nothing in him.

We don't know about him enough to care about him. And Georgie is not better. She is inconsistent, in the beginning she seems to be a really strong heroine, a kind of feminist and activist, and then she turns into some idiotic romantic brooding over Ian and questioning everything in her life because of one incident that takes only a few pages in the book and is not even well described.

And here comes the other problem of this story. Many of the significant events are almost omitted. They are mentioned only after everything is over and only in the context of the consequences for Ian and Georgie. Let's look at the fight in which one of the important characters is very seriously wounded and the main character must flee from the country let's not worry about the fact that her journey lasting several months is described in one sentence, these are just nuances!

What could be a really nice political intrigue on the Indian court despite all the mistakes about Indian history and customs becomes some strange and ridiculous story about The political intrigue ends without unnecessary delay as soon as it ceases to be useful to the bizarre idea of Ian and Georgie's romance. Yeah, the romance part. Georgie and Ian find each other attractive.

I have no idea, since they dislike each other instantly and don't know each other. And they change their beliefs on marriage in such a hurry, it's grotesque. But what nailed it is the fact that I totally didn't care about Georgie or Ian.

That's why I abandoned this book. Feb 12, seton rated it it was ok. Ian, a Marquess, is on a diplomatic mission and arrives in India where he meets Georgiana Georgie Knight and her two brothers whose own books will arrive at a book store near you soon. Georgie gets into physical danger. Ian bails her out. Georgie gets into more danger. Ian bails her out but now Georgie and her bros must leave India for good.

Ian proposes to Georgie in England after knowing her for the equivalent of two whole days. Just like in a Barbara Cartland novel but without the stutter Ian, a Marquess, is on a diplomatic mission and arrives in India where he meets Georgiana Georgie Knight and her two brothers whose own books will arrive at a book store near you soon.

Just like in a Barbara Cartland novel but without the stuttering speeches about how they are reincarnated soulmates and are just spokes in the wheel of life. When a page historical makes a page Babs Cartland novel seem deep, this aint good.

Anyway, Georgie goes back and forth on marrying Ian since she has known him for 2 days duh! Also, Ian has a Deep Dark Secret involving his first wife which he doesnt want to talk about. Foley is one of the later for me. Anyway, I am sort of dumbfounded right now. I dont know what to say about this book.

Whether she is on top of her game or not, Foley is a craftswoman and always gives me a thoughtful read so I dont understand how so many things could have gone wrong with this novel. Where do I start? This book is pages. I felt like I was reading a page novel. I can see that Foley, as expected, did a lot of research on India but she takes for granted that readers would know stuff like what purdah means as Georgie, the feminist, goes on and on about it.

Foley also never mentions the age of either Ian or Georgie which I thought was weird. This fact was brought home to me when I realized that Ian knew Georgie for all of two whole days when he first proposes marriage to her.

Ian deciding that he wants to marry Georgie after stating that he doesnt want to marry again because of his terrible first marriage doesnt make sense to me. Ian, who was first introduced about four novels ago in Lady of Desire , was established as rather staid in his previous appearances. Since he is now the Hero, Foley tries to juice him up a little by revealing that Ian is dangerous with his beserker rage ala Wolverine and the possibility that he might have done a Max de Winter see Rebecca by Du Maurier on his first wife.

Unfortunately, I didnt find this sexy, nor interesting, leaving me with a character I had a hard time trying to grasp. View all 3 comments.
