Nevertheless, if you dislike Regencies, with their distinctive language, multiple characters and familiar settings this book is not for you. On the night of a masked ball, Clarissa is taken ill.
Quentin meanwhile is scheming to compromise Clarissa to force her into marriage.
When he sees Jane at the ball he mistakes her for Clarissa, hustles her out to the garden and begins kissing her. You can just imagine how angry and humiliated Quentin is to discover that he has trapped the wrong girl into marriage.
But on the day that Quentin and Jane are married, this light, humorous Regency takes an unfunny turn. On their wedding heahher he becomes disgustingly and furiously drunk.
When he comes to Jane that night, she mistakes his reluctance for nerves and tries to comfort him with affection. In a shocking scene, Quentin brutally rapes Jane and leaves her sobbing. Not long after this he banishes her to his ramshackle estate.
Jane is astonished and frightened when Quentin arrives a few months later. Quentin scounderl no intention of making a go of the marriage, but he has no choice but to spend a few months with his wife.
A Perfect Scoundrel by Heather Cullman – FictionDB
The transformation of Quentin from dissolute psrfect to loving husband is slow and satisfying. In this case I was convinced, but Quentin was a test of my taste in this regard.
Just as Quentin changes from a shallow selfish rake, Jane blooms into her own person when she is away from the London social scene. Jane seems to become not only more self confident, but smarter as the novel goes on. Then there is the little matter of the passionate reconciliation when Jane is seven months pregnant.
Yes, I know that many pregnant women have great sex lives, but having been pregnant twice I could not but shake my head in amazement at the ease cillman which these two came together. Ah, if only life was like a romance novel.
Not only was cullma fun to read, it included a fair amount of interesting historical detail about living in the countryside during the Regency era. I do hope she writes more of these new longer, sexier regencies. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
