Lady Louisa's Christmas KnightTo marry Louisa As he recites poetry to her waltzes with her by starlight and showers her with lovely kisses they both begin to discover that their match may be the best Christmas gift either has ever received Okay so I'm reading this series and as I have mentioned in other reviews I generally finish a series I start And I liked a couple of the books in it a lot but this was just not good Here are the problems I had1 None of the conflicts make any sense Heroine translated a book of smutty poetry as a young lady? So what? She's also a learned scholar and corresponds with astronomers so I'm not sure that it's THAT that would doom her London chances Hero does not actually have 14 bastard children but legally adopted a bunch of orphans because he's a generally good dude? If the Prince Regent can figure this out how is it even possible that this is a secret? I am willing to bend a lot of reality in romance novel plots but none of these made any sense It also means that they clearly resolve in about three paragraphs and then the book ends 2 The characters are just off Why do they call each other Husband and Wife all the time? It's really weird Louisa makes NO sense and I know the book keeps saying she's smart but she's not written smart if that makes sense And Joseph just comes across as OLD In the beginning it seems like he has a drinking problem but then we're apparently just cool with that He talks weird and he's not particularly interesting 3 There is something seriously wrong with the politics of Louisa at the end So I totally get that these people have something like 15 16 kids at the end and that's before they even start having biological children which they seem to have done in the epilogue Also it's inevitable given the sex they're having Which is a lot of children even at the time especially for a first time mother and largely uninvolved or at least oblivious dad But Louisa doesn't just embrace it she has an explicit epiphany where she's like I thought I liked science and math and writing and being super awesome but REALLY now I'm realizing that before that I ACTUALLY wanted to be a mother MORE and maybe I just liked those super awesome things to cope Which is weird and unnecessary since she still publishes her poetry book So I just don't get it I guess Why do that? It's certainly not a conversation a woman would have had at the time outside the world of proto feminist romance novels and it's not consistent with her ongoing behavior and it's just kind of a weird dig at careers 4 Seriously why does this author insist on having main characters discuss menstruation all the time? We're on like 4 of 6 books here It rings as incredibly anachronistic and also weird kind of gross and does not add to the story

Grace Burrowes Ý Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight doc

Astardly fortune hunter seeks to compromise her reputation by revealing her secret identity at a holiday ballBefore she can be publicly ruined close family friend Sir Joseph Carrington saves the day by offering 25 stars Ugh Why can't I keep my authors straight? I didn't realize this was Grace Burrowes I'm not really a fan Okay that's a bit of an understatement I don't like her books I just don't I have no idea why I didn't realize who this was But whatever Shit happens This book was a confusing mess Lady Louisa has a secret she's trying to keep buried Sir Joseph is a widow with two little girls and has a whopping fourteen secrets he'd rather weren't brought to light And yes It is as weird as it sounds Lady Louisa and Sir Joseph sort of like each other but Louisa isn't sold on him uite yet A while passes and they really like each other A new scandal which is absolutely not Louisa's fault happens and Sir Joseph rescues her and her reputation Now they try to make things work while keeping their respective secrets secret at least until their relationship is established Oh and this takes place around Christmas This book was fine There was very little angst I can appreciate that in a Christmas romance It was just weird As are all of the Grace Burrowes books I've read Her books are so off balance Half the book is ridiculously unromantic and the other half is almost too mushy It lacks a happy medium Louisa and Joseph's eventual marriage was weird Not a spoiler this is HR Of course marriage happens They were always calling each other Husband and Wife to the point where instead of it being romantic it almost sounded like they were mocking each other Joseph was less awkward with his prize pig than he was with his children The entire storyline about his children's horrible nanny was completely unnecessary There are better ways to show that Louisa has impeccable skills when it comes to running a household There was also a distinct lack of heat in this book There's sex sure But it was subpar IMO I really really didn't understand Sir Joseph's bevy of secrets It was never really explained The explanation was basically a couple of sentences And the ramifications aren't really dealt with Just the fact that it turned out to be less of a problem than Joseph thought it would be I was super confused Oh well It was a pleasant enough It was free And it took place around Christmas In many ways it was exactly what I was looking for The only downside is that it really wasn't great
