    Jared Moreland is the hero of this book and he is not a very good man, he has been spending all his time drinking since the woman he thought he loved ended up marrying his father whom she fell in love with He is a weak, insensitive louse most the book while he is not a man to admire our heroine is Cassandra is a wonderful heroine, she tried despite the many heartbreaks to make the best of her lot, she complains little despite how many times her husband betrays her in private and in pub Jared Moreland is the hero of this book and he is not a very good man, he has been spending all his time drinking since the woman he thought he loved ended up marrying his father whom she fell in love with He is a weak, insensitive louse most the book while he is not a man to admire our heroine is Cassandra is a wonderful heroine, she tried despite the many heartbreaks to make the best of her lot, she complains little despite how many times her husband betrays her in private and in public..all justified in his simpleton mind that she isor less collateral damage in his war to humiliate his father He marries Cassandra as she is not beautiful or rich and she is beneath his station he spends the entire book parading her detestable selfish sister while leaving her to his best friend whom I think would have made a heckava hero , he prances the loathsome Beatrice who has mistreated Cassandra the entire time their parents had been marriedshe takes over her house and treats her as if Cassandra is the unwanted guest It was gut wrenching some of the things he does to cassandra all justifying it as his due for his heartbreak The hero does have a bit of redemption at the end but it is so quick and nowhere near groveling, sickened by his behavior that he owes the heroine I enjoyed the anger the book made me feel, however I am hopeful that in a later book Jared is the one who is watching Cassandra find happiness on the sly with the only man that was nice to her Drew

    Hero is a drunken moron who sleeps with anything that moves and thinks this somehow punishes his father for marrying the woman he thought he loved Heroine is too perfect for words Her slutty sister was a typical plot addition although she did add some interest to the plot The so called hero s redemption is rushed and not particularly believable My first and last by this author.

    meh, liked the increasing doxy ness of Beatrice, while the increasing strength of Cassy was trite, and jared s redemption was too rushed James was a plot device, but Eleanor s involvement was a curveball and didn t fit at all with the rest of the book, made Eleanor seem a little too much fairest of them all

    Regency

    the writing was good, but the central character being a drunk left methan cold Just could not connect with the whole idea.
