He waited as long as it took for her to be intimate with him, and sometimes was too hesitant just to touch her. It really was like Beauty and the Beast, where she began with terror but came winger realize, gradually, that the one she was stuck with was actually the best for her.

I wish the romance between Christopher and Erienne had been a bit more developed, because I was not sure at what point they fell in love. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite tropes, but in most versions, Beauty has something more going for her than her appearance.

If that makes Erienne superficial, then I suppose we all are in some ways. I loved how ms. Despite of what most people say, this is not superficial but typical human behaviour.

You are my own precious love, promised to me evermore. Petals In the Storm. Somebody sound the sociopath alert. The descriptives are lovely and the sentiment, passionate to treacle sweet.

A Rose in Winter

In she released The Flame and the Flower, an instant New York Times bestseller that created a literary precedent. Why did he think pretending to be a crippled ‘monster’ would help his case? Kathlesn would’ve gotten rather boring. I have found my rose in winter. But alas, she’s just a dumb bimbo throughout.

Despite everything going on around him and having to deal with a whole shitstorm of issues as a returning lord who’s suspected of murder, he really wanted a woman to “save him from his solitude” you might say, and Erienne was beginning to realize that she might be okay with that.

In fact, I have already purchased “Ashes in the Wind”, another book that received great reviews. E is addicted to books.
