Instead of a charmed life, Izzy is now a spinster Her father is dead She is broke completely destitute She has no home She hasn t eaten in days Izzy is no longer a girl with stars in her eyes Her present is cold, harsh reality Her cravings for romance were gone Now she d settle for bread What fairy tales were left over for a plain, impoverished, twenty six year old woman who d never even been kissedRight now, Izzy s entire existence hinges on a letter, a letter that arrived, promising her survival Her late godfather has left her a bequest.That bequest, as befitting a fairy tale girl, is a castle But it s not an enchanted castle, by any means It probably needs an exorcism,than anything This castle didn t welcome or enchant.It loomed.It menaced.She almost worried it might pounce. And that castle comes with its own beast A crippled, blind, scarred duke A monstrous, terrifying masterpiece There were things in nature that took their beauty from delicate structure and intricate symmetry Flowers Seashells Butterfly wings And then there were things that were beautiful for their wild power and their refusal to be tamed Snowcapped mountains Churning thunderclouds Shaggy, sharp toothed lions.This man silhouetted before her He belonged, quite solidly, in the latter category. Well, shit The castle in question is his, and Ransom, half monster and 100% man is naturally, not that eager to hand it over to her The castle has been in his family for generations, and due to a misunderstanding, it has been sold Now, his ancestral home has been handed over to a chit of a girl, and damned if Ransom s going to hand it over on a silver platter.Nope.Ransom has a comfortable life as a secluded hermit as fairy tale Beasts often do, and the last thing he wants is a woman invading HIS personal space Nope Nope Nope He literally throws Izzy outThat s it, he said, at length You re leaving this place the same way you came in He ducked, caught her by the legs, and threw her over his shoulder with the ease of a man who d tossed many a woman over his shoulder This was definitely not his first go at lady tossing. Unfortunately for him, Izzy is not the frail, shrinking violet sort he expected.Izzy may have the name of a damsel in a fairy tale, but she is a grown woman She is hungry, she is desperate, she has nowhere else to go, and this woman is standing her ground He bounced her weight, plumping her backside with his forearm There s so little to you You re wrong, she said There s a great deal to me, Your Grace More than you know More than anyone supposes You can carry me outside, if you like I ll come back in Again, and again As many times as it takes Because this is my castle now And I m not leavingRansom and Izzy comes to an uneasy agreement She will stay and be his secretary and sort out his long neglected correspondances blind men can t really answer letters , as well as figure out the legal fiasco that led to his castle being sold in the first place.He pays her very well 200 pounds a day, the sooner she figures it out, the sooner they can move on with their life Only there s just one problem Izzy starts to grow on him The easiest way to get to a man s heart is through his bellyand Izzy can make pancakes Pancakes She poked around, making busy clanging noises I don t suppose there are eggs If I do say it myself, I make a very good pancake Oh, no This just grew worse and worse.I make a very good pancake.Appalling.What was evenappalling was that Ransom found himself suddenly hungry for a very good pancake Starving Ravenous Damn it, he was faint with yearning for a very good pancake. All alarms are sounding inside Ransom s head This woman is dangerous I MEAN, PANCAKES His instincts are screaming at him GET OUT NOW Get out now The threat is coming from inside the castle. Naturally, they find themselves gradually growing fond of each other But there are, naturally, obstacles to their love Someone is trying to get rid of Ransom, steal his inheritance There are secrets in Ransom s past that threatens to overwhelm their trust of one another.And then there are the fanboys and fangirls Seriously When your childhood self was written into a bookas a fairy tale character, this is what you get A fanclub of your very own The ard riders dismounted in unison, and the carriage doors opened, spilling forth about a dozen young ladies in medieval dress Banners waved briskly in the morning breeze. Heaven help us The Setting A MOTHERFUCKING MEDIEVAL CASTLE, Y ALL HOW COOL IS THAT It is not a pretty castle It is one of those evil, lurching, looming, scary ones It comes with scary noises Once again, she woke to darkness, her heart pounding with terror and her throat scraped raw.Strange noises assailed her from all sides. As well as bats Lots and lots of bats Bats that turn a potentially romantic interludeThere s a rule about sunsets in this castle, Miss Goodnight There is Yes He turned her to face him And a man and a woman standing in this very place are compelled to heed it No choice There s only one thing to be done What s that Her pulse stumbled Surely he couldn t mean toHe lowered his head and made his voice a seductive whisper Duck DuckINTO AN OH MY GOD SWEET MOTHER OF JESUS GOD IN HEAVEN OH FUCK A DUCK SAVE US NOWmomentOh, no She stiffened Those can t be They were.Bats.An entire colony of them had been roosting in the highest reaches of the canopy Now they took wing one by one, then ten by tenand then hundreds all at once. Clearly, the castle, like its master, needs a whooooooole lot of maintenance to get shipshape.Izzy You know Alice Liddel Little Alice who inspired Alice in Wonderland Izzy is like that She is famous She has been written into her father s very famous fairy tales, and the whole of England knows about her But like Alice, nobody wants to read about Izzy Goodnight as a grown up, with her own hopes and dreams They want to think of Izzy Goodnight as a sweet little girl, forever a child, forever a fantasy The Lord Archers of the world didn t want Izzy to be a grown woman with her own set of likes and dislikes, dreams and desires They wanted her to be the wide eyed young girl of the stories That way, they could continue to read and reread their beloved tales, imagining themselves in her place. Reality is harsher than that Izzy is not that little girl She is a strong, determined woman Izzy is not a faint hearted girl, but she is not a timid little thing She may be strong, but she is never, ever a bitch That is what I love about her.Izzy has so much inner strength She is scared of a lot of things, she has had a challenging life, with a neglectful father and a nation who wants her to remain a little girl for all of eternity Izzy used to dream of fantasies, of a love sprung from fairy tales She is no longer that little girl Izzy, the woman is all grown up, with a backbone made of steel He might be wealthy, powerful, angry, and big But on at least one score, Izzy had him outmatched Buoyancy She knew how to handle prickly creatures, and she knew how to make the best of a less than ideal situation.When thrown in the pond, she learned how to swim. Ransom You rusual dark, brooding duke, but he is just so loveable He is never a brute He growls, he snarls, but he never, ever crosses the boundaries Ransom is all bark, no bite.He wanted to throw her out, the castle is his, after all, but Ransom has a heart, no matter if it has been broken He cannot throw Izzy out Ransom is gentler than he lets on But was this truly all that was left of him A cruel, unfeeling brute who would cast a defenseless young woman out into the night He didn t want to believe that Not yet He didn t surrender anything lightly, and that included what few shards remained of his broken soul. Ransom, like most Beastly Dukes, have a scarred past He doesn t allow himself to be loved It was so foreign to him, this unsolicited tenderness Incomprehensible And much as he craved it, it scared him like hell With every caress he permitted, he was piling up debts he could never repay.You don t deserve it, came that dark, unforgiving echo He d heard the words so many times, they were part of him now They lived in his blood, resounding with each hollow beat of his heart You don t deserve this You never could. But insidiously, without him realizing it, Izzy, with her wild mane and her good heart and gentle nature, finds her way into his home and his heart And they re pretty much the same thing If not for her, this room would still be filled with rats and bats If not for her, he d be sitting unshaven and drunk in the great hall, morosely counting his steps to nowhere And if not for her, he would have no reason to fight this battle at all. The Romance LOVED IT This book has plenty of steam, of the sweet, sensual sort There is no extreme OH LET S FUCK WITHIN THE FIRST 50 PAGES sort of shit This is a grown woman who has to slowly understand her own lust She growled in frustration I know I m not It makes no sense at all I m not a silly little girl who dreams of knights I m a woman A woman who s inconveniently, completely, and for the first time in her life, in lust Just burning with desire for the worst possible man A profane, bitter, wounded duke who refuses to leave her house Oh, you are dreadfulWho demands that her first kiss be fucking PERFECT, dammit And if it s not, well, you better make fucking sure you do it right the second time around And it still counts Her grip tightened on his shirtfront You re not going to ruin my first kiss I won t let you You re going to kiss me again, right now And make it better He shook his head, incredulous It s over It s already done Even if I did kiss you again, it wouldn t be your first kiss any It counts, she said So long as it s part of the same embrace, it all counts as one Bloody hell. There s my girl The romance is so sweet, so genuinely adorable The writing is absolutely delightful Nary a page passes when I didn t find myself grinning madly This book is filled with humor, full of delight Somehow, he d wound a lock of her hair about his finger There it was Right This Moment And he had no recollection of doing it, either.What was he coming to, when a woman sat in his lap, he gave her a stern what forand then ten seconds later, oopsy daisy and la di dah, he went and twirled a finger in her hair That was not ducal behavior. You will fall in love with this book

    Wanna read a story about a moody blind guy who pushes everyone away from him Scarred heroes aren t my thing They tend to be angry pricks, and I m just not turned on by mopey and or dark dudes Guess I m just funny like thatHowever, humorous historical romances with plucky heroines are my thing, and that s what made Romancing the Duke a big win for me This story Well, it s filled to the brim with stuff that I hate.Handsome blind hero and plain ugly duckling woman. Hero is physically em Wanna read a story about a moody blind guy who pushes everyone away from him Scarred heroes aren t my thing They tend to be angry pricks, and I m just not turned on by mopey and or dark dudes Guess I m just funny like thatHowever, humorous historical romances with plucky heroines are my thing, and that s what made Romancing the Duke a big win for me This story Well, it s filled to the brim with stuff that I hate.Handsome blind hero and plain ugly duckling woman. Hero is physically emotionally scarred.Hero is calloused and mean Each of those are things that make me want to askHow many fingers I m holding upNow, I know a lot of you love the stuff I mentioned, and even actively seek those sort of books out, but I m soooo glad I didn t know about them until I already had the book in my hot little hands.BECAUSE IT WAS SO CUTE No, really Izzy was just so spunky, and funny, and cute Her life has been less than amazing, but she just never gives up Ever.Every time Ransom that s the guy tries to get rid of her because she s inherited his family s castle , she just ignores his dismissal and pretends he s kidding.Which, naturally, drives him nuts Of course, he tries to scare her off by threatening to ravish her with kisses As men do snort But she turns the tables on him by being REALLY open to the suggestion.So, yeah He s sorta gotta put up or shut up And then there s this whole storyline about Izzy being the daughter of a famous children s story writer and the basically cosplayers who follow her around I m totally serious.Sounds crazy, but Tessa Dare makes it work.This may not be my favoritest story ever, but if you re looking for a cute romance to pass the time, you should check this out

    I think this is somewhere between 3 and 4 stars for me, but it got 4 because it has some yummy steamy stuff in it If you are intrigued by the idea of a period romance with LARPers in it This could be your jam We read this for Vaginal Fantasy and it was overall really enjoyed by all

After reading a crappy romance anti stalker effect guaranteed Meet Ransom the hilarious grinch instead p For God s sake Don t do that Don t do what Smile How do you know I m smiling I can hear it Hell, I can feel it It s all warm and sweet andHe scowled Bah BAHAHAHAHA I loved him eventhe second time around He is FAR from perfect, can be such an infuriating jerk, and I might betolerant because it s HR But I Don t Care Yum Love him Before deciding that all romance MC are boring Izzie can read in voices yes, it s important , says what she thinks, all the time, really, isn t afraid to stand for herself and says cock Before swearing you ll never read an historical romance because Just because Before During After vacations whenever really RIGHT NOW Why must this be so mortifying Oh, that s right Because it s my life ORIGINAL REVIEW 4.5 stars You know I m not an historical romance girl And yet, Color me surprised That was all kind of adorable and I fell in love with this story.Sometimes we love characters because they aren t like us see Penryn for example did I need to remind you how much I wouldn t survive in the world afterNope, I don t think so and other times, we come across some personality traits which remind us so much of ourselves that we can t help but relate to the character That s what happened to me with some sides of Izzie Not everything, but enough She s spontaneous, that is to say, happens to say everything she has in mind when she s stressed Yeah, I know the feeling She knows what she wants and isn t afraid to ask for it Personal story time you can skip it if you don t care.When I was a kid, sometimes I was grounded I know, shocking The fact is, I used to wait a bit like, half an hour and after this I always went to my dad to ask him if I could go out Sometimes he said yes, other times he said no Whatever It depended on the stupidity I d done, I guess Well, all of that is this to say that I asked what I wanted, contrary to my sister who waited that my parents told her to go out.Why am I telling this to you To point out that I was a spoiled brat Hmm No Maybe I don t know Not the point Actually I m telling this because here s what I learnt and remembered In life, if you want something, you re going to have to ask for it, because people aren t going to guess for you.And that s what annoys me the most in heroines and makes me often want to shake them that s a rule I apply in my life, and it s pretty simple if you ask for the opposite of what you want, you ll probably obtain the opposite of what you want If you don t know what you want maybe you have to think about it before asking And finally, if you want something, go for it and ask Of course that s not because you ask that you will obtain what you want, OF COURSE But you re increasing your chances here That s why I loved Izzie She knows what she wants and she isn t afraid to fight to obtain it In her straightforward way, she s freaking courageous and her bluntness is incredibly enjoyable She s a woman, not a spoiled brat Romanced since her childhood by her writer of a father, she doesn t believe in fairies tales and her only and true goal is to be noticed To be seen entirely Even if she s inexperienced as hell, she doesn t shy away and just asks for what she wants How exhilarating is that And we have Ransom Ah, Ransom What a perfect broody hero you are Let me tell you his inner monologues full of venom were hilarious that s simple, he s always trying to get rid of someone, in one way or another And wow, how badly he takes people intrusion That was precious Like here How did one get rid of these girls They were like fanned away horseflies They just kept coming back Or here Certainly you can It s bad enough that they pester you with letters and questions Draw a line, Goodnight Go out there and tell them you re a grown woman who can sling about the word cock with the ease of a courtesan, and you don t appreciate unannounced visits Then invite them to sod off, the bunch of clanking idiots If you won t, I ll do it Moreover he s protective and so fucking hot And above all that, he s a broken man who doesn t believe in love and who s incredibly afraid to open his mind and his heart to feelings and yet he craves for them Literally Damn, that s safe to say that he stole my heart completely I loved everything his grumpiness, his struggle to love, his hotness, and he earned his batch of Awwwwwwwww from me What was he coming to, when a woman sat in his lap, he gave her a stern what for and then ten seconds later, oopsy daisy and la di dah, he went and twirled a finger in her hair That was not ducal behavior It certainly wasn t normal behavior for him Their banter was wonderful, full of repartee and yet never filled with disrespect This brings me to the absolutely delicious conversations between Izzie and Ransom man, that was hilarious Between their comments and the awkward situations they re put into the Army guys Precious I ll let you discover it , I couldn t help but laugh out loud like a total fool That was fucking great Moreover, the story takes place in a castle which is awesome but in a wrecked castle which is evenawesome Since his accident, Ransom never had the occasion and never wanted to make a home of this castle and guess what A lot of things will change with Izzie s arrival, much to Ransom s despair Finally, as a not so fond of historical romance girl, what I often despise when I read a book like this is the writing and the pacing Truth being told, I end boredoften than most and have a hard time enjoying the My Lady and other Your Grace Good news Here s I never felt overwhelmed by an heavy writing, that s quite the opposite I was captivated from the beginning to the end Bravo I cheered at the end I CHEERED I don t know what else I can tell you to convince you Edit To you specialists of historical,I have a request If you know others books like this, aka, without too many stereotypical sayings and great characters, please, tell me I m like a kid who s discovered ice cream right now Forof my reviews, please visit
