So naturally, she falls in love with him.
Family and Friends drama ensue, Venetia throws herself at Damerel and he takes her in self defense. The End.
This was a journey into Madness. I was obviously delirious after my 2500th Review and the endorphins were in control. That is the only thing I can think of as to why I agreed to MurderbyDeath and BookCupidity’s request. However, the whole experience was fun. The updates were interesting. They also kept me going when I wanted to quit. So thank you everyone who read along.
So, basically, there were little bits of humorous conversation gold that then were covered in excrement. Damerel’s assault and declaration of would-be rape. The information that Venetia’s mom was NOT dead but had simply married a rich man and been living abroad.
All of the various updates by people can be found with the “bookstooge lady romance project” tag added to this post.
Without a lot of detail, this was everything I thought a modern “romance” book would be. A female wish fulfillment book. Heyer is NO Austen. The extensive overuse of comma’s were just the gravestone on this book for me.
