Betina Krahn ☆ The Last Bachelor ePub

Ll too eager to put a stop to the widow's schemes THE LAST BACHELOR When the pair meet in the halls of Parliament the sparks fly and a wager is made If Remington will subject himself to two weeks of women's work Antonia will put in two weeks of men's work And then they will see who has the harder lot in life The battle is on And the stakes are nothing less than their heart Every now and again I feel a bit nostalgic and reach for a historical romance This one sounded uniuely entertaining The wager made by the match making widow and the marriage opposed bachelor hinted at the possibility of humorous situations gone awry as well as plenty of opportunity for lust to turn to love I was not disappointed The nobleman being coerced into a corset and an apron was uite funny What I did not expect was the widow's many companions I expected young women but found Antonia's roommates were instead elderly ladies whose husbands had left them in rather dire straights upon their deaths This cast of characters added a certain sentimental sweetness to help counter the headstrong tendencies of their gracious hostess and the man she had challenged to endure a couple weeks worth of women's work The challenge would have been enough by itself to get our heroine and hero in the same space where physical attraction would have overcome propriety However society loves a great scandal and the spectacle of a nobleman in a corset and apron cannot be ignored Soon the wager becomes a public affair that even the ueen could not completely avoid and royal scrutiny bears its own costs Entertaining and well thought out as this was I must admit I found myself struggling to stay engaged I blame this not on the book but on how much my reading tastes have evolved over the years It gets harder and harder to lose myself in historical romances

The Last BachelorSHE CREATED A STIR Some found her ingenious others diabolical But no one could argue with the success of Lady Antonia Paxton's techniue For the beautiful young widow had made a career out of helping destitute women marry well by trapping London's richest young bachelors in compromising positions with her willing ladies then forcing them to marry HE CREATED A SCANDAL The da Sometimes even a predicatable storyline can be enjoyed if the book is executed as impressively as Betina Krahn managed The Last Bachelor The main characters Remington Carr and Mrs Antonia Paxton the widow were well developed and realistic Although I personally did not favour either of them they were well written and ideal in their characters The book was a rather long read and I found myself getting bored in the middle and especially the parts where Remington or Antonia were keeping up their ends of the wager and performing women's work or men's work I really didn't need to know the mundane functionings of an English home back in the 1800s or whenever it was that this novel was set There were moments when I felt Betina Krahn managed to sound too much like a debator for women's rights or some such like Those were the tedious parts to read as well Moreover I really expected much but I felt the book lacked sorely on romance and for one that is so long it is highly inexcusable
