    In the Wake of the Wind by Katherine Kingsley
    It was Amanda's review of this book made me want to read it.

    Yes I know Amanda's review wasn't that great but hey one person's wallbanger is another's keeper. The part that caught my eye was
    ... Aiden confesses all to an innocent maid in a wood the day before his marriage


    I was interested to see how the author tried to come back from that big of a screw up on the heros part. It is one thing to think your betrothed doesn't want you, it is another thing to have him tell you point blank. Even if he doesn't know he is telling 'you'.

    So you start the book with the bride all happy happy joy joy about the wedding and the groom facing death, to have the wedding happen, and completely turn that around. The thing I didn't understand was Aiden was happy with who his bride was and figured out pretty quickly she wasn't at all what he had been told. He knows he got the better end of the deal and feels for her but god damn if he is gonna fall in love with the chit.

    Marry her - sure
    be faithful to her - sure (as long as she is warming his bed)
    create a home with her - sure
    use her money to pay off his debt - sure

    but love? eh? What is this four letter word you speak of? God save me from the rake afraid of lurve. whatever...

    The other thing that completely rang false was when Aiden found out what Auntie and the Serafina's maid had been up to, to uh... get him up. I really would have expected more of a reaction from a man, any man, when he found out he was being drugged. Then again I would have expected him to throw out sister dear on her ear when he found out about her lies.

    So does the book have its faults, sure, but all in all I found it an enjoyable read and am looking forward to my next Kingsley. And of course after I finished this and started googling I remembered that meljean has great love for No Greater Love. So that has been added to the list, beta hero and all ;).

    1. Hey Sybil. I tried to find an email address on your blog but couldn't find it.

      I have a number of Katherine Kingsley books but don't remember them much.
      No wait, I just checked out Maljean's review and I do remember this book. And I did like it!! Quite a bit in fact.

      I'm still waiting for "skeet" :)
