I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Nice try.

Thomas: The Jaded Gentlemen Book 1 (Volume 1) - Grace Burrowes

Just didn't really hit the nerve for me.


It might have been the strange set-up with the lady steward. And then the Viscount who brought his wife who used to manage a brothel...


That's just all a bit hard to swallow.


So it felt a bit off for me - it was partly small things, how proprierty was (not) shown - those Victorian times were brutal, and that didn't really check out.

E.g. the rape blame of the widow. This was a time, where something like this would have rather ended her good name than the culprit's.


The kissing and touching. Absolute no go for non-married couples.


A lot of other small stuff that made this feel more like a contemporary.
