Like No Other Lover ô Ikes a bargain with her he'll keep Cynthia's steamy secrets and help her find a husband among the guests in exchange for a single kissWhat could be the harm in a simple kiss? Cynthia is about to discover that it's enough to unleash fierce passion and that Miles Redmond is most certainly like no other lover in the wor Just a lovely straight character driven love story no villains murders to solve lost heirs or heiresses to find or discover no evil plots to foil no useless brothers to support exactly what I want in a romance The entire story takes place over 2 weeks at a house party at the wealthy Redmonds' country estate in Pennyroyal Green Both the hero and heroine want to be engaged at the end of the 2 weeks basically for financial gain but not to each other because she is broke and he is not very wealthy apart from his family but wants to finance a long scientific voyage to South America so he needs money The story of how they come together fall in love and decide no one else will do for them is beautifully written well characterized funny be prepared to laugh out loud if you read this book poignant and very sexy But usual problem with Julie Anne Long anachronisms eg the guests at an upper class house party in the 19th century would NEVER have eaten their breakfasts sitting around the kitchen table Plus others kindle á Like No Other Lover á Julie Anne Long

Julie Anne Long á Like No Other Lover pdf Roken engagements and dueling lovers Miles Redmond renowned explorer and thanks to his brother's disappearance heir to the family's enormous fortuneMiles set his sights on Cynthia once at a time when the ambitious beauty thought herself too good for a second son But now he's heir apparent relishing his control He str These people are idiots with all the empathy of particularly limp carrots And I can't for the life of me see why either would have anything to do with the other Okay so she's hot and he's rich and handsome but the book tells us Miles has his pick of hot people he can actually have sex with and she has had her pick of the best of society for years apparently so it's not like either has any reason to pay any particular attention to the other At half way in they've barely spoken beyond very calculating discussions on how Miles can help her with the inside scoop so she can scam any of the half dozen other men present into marrying her So they're both calculating jerks and we see zero charm or kindness or engagement from either one Even the kitten gift is just so much authorial intrusion with Miles acting on essentially intuition to provide a gift that's perfect only insofar as we're told it is It's like if I gave a work acuaintance a bobble head Thor because I heard she liked The Avengers and it turned out to be exactly the right thing and now we're in looooooveAnyway it's all lust with zero foundation and being told her situation is dire but neither lead acting like it except when we need to interrupt the wooing with boors and blowhards when I'd much rather Long spent time showing me why Cynthia and Miles have any right to be panting after each other Because so far I'm torn between wanting Cynthia to blow that sick popsicle stand and find someone better maybe start looking under some rocks? and not wanting Cynthia to ruin some nice guy's life by enticing him into marrying her just because she's desperate and doesn't want to be companion to a thoroughly unpleasant person we haven't even met reallyWhen the tension is between wanting them to find other people and wanting them to stop wasting time with the inept morons around them well it's time to cut my losses
