One awful moment shattered her lifeBasslea was a haven and Marina was totally content there She had her music and her innocent childlike fantasies Nothing seemed capable of chang I have been on a bit of a Charlotte Lamb kick lately This is the third Harleuin I have read by her and it is so different than the previous two I have read If nothing else I commend her for being diverse in a genre that dictates using the same paint by number formula After Dark fate a mad caper involving I kid you not a super serious but unintentionally loltastic telepathy plot and An excellent wife? a humorous romance that was reminiscent of beloved thirties screwball comedies Crescendo took me back to a conventional Harleuin blueprint Angsty dramatic with a lot of sweeping winds over the moors a cliff perched over an angry sea an ethereal girl woman as the heroine and a brooding much older dark hero There's mystery sleep walking secrets conspiracies passion a femme fatale rival thunderstorms ancient ruins and a lot of emotional piano playing Bit like a modern Gothic lite overall My favorite were the characterizations of the protagonists because I felt the author went a bit deeper than the reuired cardboard cut out of the willowy virgin and the dark knight It may seem like a creepy May December romance at first but once the layers of the story are peeled away you realize this isn't just any run of the mill seduction stories between a cad and an innocent it is a bit complex than that My only dissatisfaction was that there was not enough groveling Anyone who knows my reading tastes knows that I adore big fat jerk heroes stories but only if there is an Epic grovel to conclude it
CrescendoIng her world until Gideon Firth arrivedHe was everything she was not sophisticated urbane powerful And she found herself responding to his magnetism the way no unawakened girl s 35 starsIf you want to know how to make your man suffer for real or imagined crimes read a Charlotte Lamb or Sally Wentworth revenge themed manual romance This book's main theme isn't technically revenge but the heroine's transformation from innocence to ice is a sight to behold with her sharp putdowns to the hero a lesson in steely resolve 'If you don't like the way I look at you you have an option Go and don't come back''I can't' he groaned his hands hanging loosely by his side and that pain in his dark eyes 'I love you''I don't care' Marina said flatly 'Just go You're boring me' LOL Point to MarinaMarina did have some reason to feel anger but I felt she held onto her bitterness a tad too long unwilling to let Gideon even explain himself I was sympathetic up until it was clear Gideon hadn't done this view spoilerHadn't cheated on her with his ex girlfriend whom he'd dumped to be with Marina I believed him when he said the ex kissed him and not vice versa Gideon's only true crimes? Not being in touch with his feelings and not breaking things off cleanly with the OW he'd gone on platonic dates with Marina while still with OW Otherwise the man was super besotted Based on his courtship of Marina and the way he treated her I felt it was true After Gideon explained all did Marina believe him or at least try forgiving him? Nope It's not until he finally left—after she repeatedly told him to go—that she bent And then hated him for not saying goodbye The man couldn't win It was clear she loved him but wanted to make him pay as much as she could hide spoiler
