商品の説明

内容紹介

Widowed Anna Wren is having a wretched day. After an arrogant man on horseback nearly crushes her, she arrives home to learn that she is in dire financial straits.

THERE COMES A TIME IN A LADY'S LIFE

The Earl of Swartingham is in a quandary. Having frightened off two secretaries, Edward de Raaf needs someone who can withstand his bad temper and boorish behavior.

WHEN SHE MUST DO THE UNTHINKABLE . . .

When Anna becomes the earl's secretary, it would seem that both their problems are solved. But when she discovers he plans to visit the most notorious brothel in London, she sees red-and decides to assuage her desires . . .

著者の処女作です。
が、文章もきびきびしていて読みやすいし、お話しの展開にもめりはりがあり、もたもたしないで、進んでいきます。
現代のロマンス小説は登場人物が多すぎ、また脇役の性格付けを丁寧にするせいか、話しが長いのが多いですが、このお話しは適度な長さが心地よいです。
また、ホットなシーンの描写も下品にならないところは上手で、どきどきさせてくれます。総合的にエンタテイン力が高い質の高い作品に仕上がっています。

主人公はロマンス界ではやりつつある?(笑)不細工ヒーロー(ボディはでぶではなく素敵なところはポイント!)&未亡人ヒロインです。このボディナイスなヒーローがヒロインに対する悶々とした思いに耐えかね、ロンドンの高級売春宿通いを企てるのですが、これに対してヒロインは自分が相手になるべく、ちょっと現実では考えられない大胆な行動に出ます。

ヒーロー、ヒロインのやさしさは、行動を通して語られ、特にヒーローの老執事(ぼけを装っているが実は人を見る目はするどい)との会話は、なかなか面白く、ヒーローの何気ない優しさがうまく表現されており、感心しました。

とても素敵な作品です。

5つ星のうち 4.0 I actually liked it a lot, contrary to what I thought when I started 2015/11/10

I love to read the negative reviews and then the neutral ones because positive reviews don't help much. I was wary that I wouldn't like a book with too much sex in it. But once you got past the colorful language of the hero, once you got past the ridiculous risk the heroine takes to be with him, you get a really nice love story.

She is a lonely widow whose husband broke her heart by being with another woman before he died. He thought she was barren but he was just firing blanks with her, but had two bastards with another lady of standing. It's true that Anna would have been devastated with that fact, and the way she was portrayed was true to life. Devastated, lonely, barren in heart and soul until she meets the dark, broody hero who ignites life back into her. Of course she wouldn't want him to be with anyone else but her.

This book read like a Georgian social commentary at times, and it earned my respect that way. Men could be as vile, vulgar and crass as they want to be but women walked a thin line between propriety and shame. In a world where reputation is everything people will kill, maim, blackmail and lie to keep their secrets. Anna was a refreshing heroine who would claim honesty and wear her scarlet letter if she had to without endangering her love.

In a way it made Anna a sad little wren, who finally found a love she should not have. But she was no wilting wallflower either. I could respect her and I could understand her frustrations. If you get past the sillier parts of the plot, you realize she is a worthy heroine.

The hero was a little oversexed in my opinion. For a man his age, he should not be running around stiff as a rod whenever he thought of his little secretary. That was a little far fetched in my opinion and I ended up skipping some of the bedroom scenes thinking, "Yeah, yeah, I know you want her." The bedroom scenes were exciting and sizzling but really that's not what I liked about the story. The heroine then becomes a raging inferno of lust and it was hard to take her transformation from wren to hawk so suddenly. I have to say the writing style was hot and steamy and it's borderline porn for your brain. But porn doesn't have a plot, characters or even good acting, so this was still a few notches above.

When he finally realizes it's love for her, duty be damned, you realize that he might actually be the princess in the fairytale and she the cursed prince, I felt a degree of satisfaction. They had saved each other. And he stopped thinking with his penis (finally).

5つ星のうち 5.0 Very Unexpcted 2013/7/31
投稿者 Emily - (Amazon.com)

Never in my life, did I think I would love a hero described as ugly. Pockmarked due to small pox, big nose, thin lips. But, with a gorgeous muscular body. He has a wicked temper too. I tossed this book aside when I read his description, but will be grateful forever I decided to try it again. lets face it, the stunning, gorgeous hero is less believable then a less then perfect man would be. In the end, I visualize him like Joe Manginello who is really hot, (Alcide Herveaux from True Blood.) He has a large nose and a gorgeous body.But with pock marks, perhaps his handsomeness would be overlooked?) The tension is terrific and I love how as Anna falls for Edward, he goes from ugly to gorgeous in her eyes. Anna is also no shrinking violet, she devises a plan to get him in bed with out him knowing it is her. She decides her small station in life is restricting and unfair and longs for a night of real passion with the man she has come to love, but whose station in life is decidedly above her own.

There are some really great secondary characters. Coral is a favorite of mine and has some of the best lines in the book. Oh and you have to love Jock, Edwards equally 'ugly" but no less loveable dog. All in all, this is a very satisfying love story, with some very hot love scenes. It has gone from being one I tossed aside in anger, to one of my all time favorites. I am enjoying Ms. Hoyts subsequent stories, but none quiet as much as this. Enjoy!

5つ星のうち 4.0 The plot is rather far fetched 2016/6/17
投稿者 yardtree - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
The widow Anna Wren, needs to get a job to support her mother-in-law and live in maid. She tries to find a job in the little village as a governess or lady's companion. She has no luck until she runs into the steward who works for Edward de Raaf,the Earl of Swartingham. The steward offers her a job as secretary to the Earl; the last two secretaries fled because they feared the Earl. He has a temper, scowls, and frightens all who are around him. Anna accepts the position and there is a lot of fun banter between the couple. The plot is rather far fetched, but the characters are great. I really liked Edward. Yes he has a temper and can be quite fowl but Anna is a strong character and can stand up to him.
5つ星のうち 4.0 Love Story Between an Ugly Man and an Ordinary Woman 2013/9/30

Like the characters in this novel, at first read this book was ordinary and unimpressive to me. After reading some extraordinary reviews of this book, I was very disappointed by this book the first time around. It did not live up to its expectations for me.

But because it was the first book in a series, I decided to continue with the next book, The Leopard Prince, which I absolutely loved. I am so glad that I continued because I continued reading all of Elizabeth Hoyt's books and have loved them.

While waiting for the next book in the Maiden Lane series, I decided to revisit this book. I'm so glad that I did. Once I was freed from my expectations, I really loved this book.

After reading several of Hoyt's books, I have come to really enjoy the dreamy, storybook qualities of her stories. The Raven Prince has more fairy tale qualities than other books. Not in the story elements so much as in the language and in the interior dialogue of the characters. This book is different.

It is the story of Edward, Earl of Swartingham, and Anna Wren, a widow and a commoner. Neither is particularly impressed with one another when they first meet. Both are also constricted by the roles that society has dictated for them. As expressed in the book "It's so much easier to simply do what people expect of you...It may be easier, but it isn't necessarily the right way."

Their love story is an internal journey...it's about them letting go of their expectations and reaching for what they each know that they want -- each other. Yes, there are some external conflicts, but the true beauty of the book is how the desire for love changes these characters.

Recommend...and if it doesn't suit you the first time...try again.
5つ星のうち 5.0 A Favorite 2016/11/30

Read this year's ago in paperback and just repurchased and re-read it on kindle. Yes, it is that good. Edward isn't the best looking Earl, he almost died from smallpox, and he definitely doesn't have the best temper. When Anna, a well-educated but impoverished gentlewoman decides to take the position of his Secretary, he's surprised that she can tolerate his outbursts let alone his visage. As they grow closer, this leads to some very sensual scenes. Great characters, plot and satisfying conclusion of course.
