[Sherry Thomas] Ï Ravishing the Heiress [textbooks PDF] Ebook Epub Download Ø I m sad to say I was disappointed by this book I was really looking forward to it and even paid the full price for an ebook version After all is said and done, almost 9 bucks is a little much for a book that really doesn t deliver I wanted to like it because the story line is amazing and has so much potential I think Sherry Thomas is a good writer, Some of the lines in the book were very poetic and true of love and life I get the main idea with Fitz, he s heartbroken about not getting to live the life he had planned He s in love with a woman he can t have But the way that his heartbreak was used as an excuse for his behavior over and over again was annoying There is nothing I hatethen a heroine who is humiliated through out the novel repeatedly and then made to fe 4.
5 stars HELL HAS FROZEN OVER I found a historical romance book that I LOVED And it s all Didi s fault because of this spectacular review she wrote I have a long history of loathing with historical romance As a history major in college I get nitpicky about the details and often end up screaming things at the book such as why are you not pregnant yet or why are you talking like a millennial Neither of these two things were an issue with this book Ravishing the Heiress with a title that has nothing to do with the book is about a young girl named Millie who meets her intended fiance and falls in love with him on sight The problem is Fitz is in love with another girl but he must marry Millie for money Cue eight years of Fitz s anguish over losing the love of his life, and eight years of Millie anguishing over a husband who could never love her back Through these eight years the two becom Millicent Understands The Terms Of Her Arranged Marriage All Too Well She Gets To Be A Countess By Marrying An Impoverished Earl And In Return, The Earl Fitzhugh Receives The Benefit Of Her Vast Wealth, Saving His Family From Bankruptcy Because Of Her Youth, They Have Agreed To Wait Eight Years Before Consummating The Marriage And Then, Only To Beget An Heir After Which, They Will Lead Separate LivesIt Is A Most Sensible Arrangement Except For One Little Thing Somehow Millie Has Fallen Head Over Heels In Love With Her Husband Her Husband, Who Has Become Her Very Best Friend, But Nothing Her Husband, Who Plans To Reunite With His Childhood Sweetheart, The Beautiful And Newly Widowed Isabelle, As Soon As He Has Honored The Pact With His Wife As The Hour They Truly Become Husband And Wife Draws Near, Both Millie And Fitzhugh Must Face The Truth In Their Hearts Has Their Pact Bred Only A Great Friendship Or Has It, Without Either Of Them Quite Noticing, Given Rise To A Great Love 4.
5 STARSI LOVED this Let me first just say that the title is quite misleading Ravishing the Heiress is a title that sounds like you d be reading a bodice ripper, or that the story is quite lusty and not very deep In reality it was none of these things It was angsty, emotional, heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time This is not a quick historical romance and although it s just under 300 pages, it unravels slowly, letting you witness the evolution of love from friendship This also reminded me of Unforgivable, by Joanna Chambers Same idea a young and plain girl gets married off to a fledging man of the nobility to save his family from ruin Said man is resentful and not at all happy to be married off to someone other than the girl he loves Where as in Unforgivable, the hero was quite the asshole, abandoning his wife and seeking other women 4.
00 Stars Historical Romance Victorian Fitz image error The take home message of this book Be a good girl, never complain, don t make any waves, and eventually he ll fall in love with you.
Yeah, I hated everything about this book It s love at first sight for Millie She just sees Fitz, and boom, it s love I d give her a pass on that since she was only 16, but since she shows no signs of growing up in the course of this story, I m calling it Fail 1.
Fitz still fancies himself in love with Isabelle after not having had anything to do with her for 8 years But they were so in love you say They weren t married, or engaged, or in a relationship, really They were teenagers in the throes of their first crush As tragic as the circumstances of their parting were, they each went thei I rate this about a 4.
25 I m big into rounding down these days.
25 of those stars are for Millie s fortitude Her stoic pragmatism was something here, and her strength something else.
I won t recap, but I ll definitely say in many ways this isn t an easy read And it would be easy to malign Fitz for his choices and seemingly constant rejection of Millie, but part of why this book worked was that he, too, was rejected time and again by her At least in my eyes If my spouse is all, hey, going to meet another lover or hey, jumping off the bed when you are sexy snuggling it d feel kind of shitty I m not sure why he d think anything but what he thought, and his appreciation of her really did ring true from the very early bricks of their relationship Also well done was her status in his eyes This very sweet no one treats my wife rudely thing, which could sound ironic, but isn t
I don t know if I could do what Millie have done, but I applaud Ms Thomas for having written such a wonderful story I wanted so many times to slap, shake, punch Fitz that it s not funny How can an intelligent man submit a woman his wife to something like that Inconceivable I got, at the beginning that he was devastated I got that he didn t want to marry I got that he was sick to his heart I got all that But, for God s sake, he went with other woman without shame or thought how his wife will feel about that And when, after many years, finally they became friends and partners and they both had feeling for each other what did he do He decided to leave Millie for his ex when she returns to London as a widdow With two children too OMG O M G So, I don t, really don t know if I would have been able to bear all Millie went Full disclosure here Angsty storylines are not my cup of tea More to the point, angsty storylines are my brain s Kryptonite So what s a girl to do when she opens a book to discover two relentlessly annoying people angsting over each other and other people for a couple hundred pages Well, snark about it, of course It s the only way my brain can process the fucking PAIN Okay image error
A mundane marital task, was this not An obligation he d put off for too long Why then, as he advanced toward the bedroom, did he feel as if he were being swept out to sea That the tides and currents would be unlike anything he d ever known in the calm estuary that had been his marriage Millicent Millie Graves, an heiress was wed at sixteen Her father determined that they be joined to a titled family, arranged the marriage to the impoverished Earl Fitzhugh Fitz, at nineteen and newly titled, was not yet ready for marriage let alone children Fitz and Millie make an agreement to not consummate the marriage until they both want children Though married they would live separate lives for the agreed eight years But now with the eight year pact finally drawing to a close, Fitz s first and only love makes a reappearance in his life There are many talent
