My First Amanda Uick And Most Defiantly first Amanda uick and most efiantly my last Loved everything about this book The plot the charactersit all radiated true originality This one s One Night at the Lake definatly going into my shelves of favourites I love Regency romances I am a Georgette Heyer tragic from way back but many of today s efforts are very weak and formulaic This one is neither of those things and I was in my reading element The two main characters wereelightful the conversation was witty and the formula was thrown out the window Guess what no misunderstandings between our purported lovers to separate them and lead them astray In this book our hero and our heroine understand each other from the start and have each other s backs throughout the story It was fun it was fresh and I loved it 4 12 starsI like Beauty and the Beast tales and Ravished is many reader s favorite Amanda uick novel so I chose it as my introduction to her work I m glad to say I was not The Hero Next Door disappointed I loved Gideon from the start and he was everything but The Beast of Blackthorne Hall the nickname he receivedue to his shady reputation and his sinister appearance I was expecting to meet a Ask Me No Questions dark tortured hero but he was actually uite funny Harriet was aifferent matter and it took me some time to understand her She came The Gnadiges Fraulein. dangerously close to becoming a TSTL heroine when she put herself inanger by refusing to listen to Gideon s reasoning not only once but twice Her redeeming point was her never faltering trust in Gideon jumping at one time literally to his Unscrewed defense whenever someoneared to speak ill of himAs for the story it was entertaining funny and fast paced Some events and particularly Harriet s reaction to them were unusual for lack of a better word but in the end I thought that uirkiness was fitting I wasn t too surprised with the identity of the master villain even though I spent most of the time thinking it was someone else Considering this was a romance and not a mystery thriller novel I have no complaints And the ending Ah I love closing a book with a smile on my face Ravished is one of my all time favorite Amanda uick novels It s a wonderful story with likable characters and I must have read it at least 3 times already Gideon is a scarred brooding semi outcast whose own parents on t believe in his innocence Despite having reason to be bitter and harsh than the immature heros of many other romances Gideon never behaves like immature heros of many other romances Gideon never behaves like jerk or takes out his anger on the heroine He can be arrogant and ictatorial but he is tender to and proud of Harriet from practically the beginning Harriet is eccentric geekily obsessed with fossil collecting intelligent a bit bossy a bit plain and on the shelf in her mid 20 s She s no shrinking violet and is not afraid to go for it when she and Gideon get stuck in a cave alone overnight Their bond is wonderful she believes in him and His Convict Wife (Convict Wives defends him verbally and in 1 memorable scene physically to everyone and he sees her as beautiful There are some nice passionate scenes Some good humor too when Harriet s geeky friends try to save her from the Beast Assorted villains including a rival fossil hunter add to the plot But the focus remains on the romance and it s lovely sigh. Notoriously menacing Yet Harriet could not find it in her heart to fear him For in his tawny gaze she sensed a savage pain she longed to soothe and a searing passion she yearned to answer Now caught up in the Beast’s clutches Harriet must find a way to win his heart and evade theeadly trap of a scheming villain who would see them parted for all time.
