Lady Serena the third book in Ella uinn s The Marriage Game Series Ioved the independent highly capable Lady Serena who finds herself a bit Stickman Odyssey, Book 2: The Wrath of Zozimos lost in the world of the Regency haut ton Essentially banished when her brother marries and brings his new He Scottish Borderlands Lady Serena Weir has never had any of theseuxuries But when Serena's brother demands she finally have a Season in London she's thrust into a glamorous world she's only dreamed ofRobert Viscount Beaumont remembers all too well what it feels The Last of the Tribe like to. I got 30% of the way in and just cannot read any This author was recommended to me and I could see certain aspects of her writing that I wouldike but this plot and the characters were just too unrealisticjerkish for me Here are my reasons this may be spoilerish 1 I read the first 30% and waited for something to happen and nothing did It was just scene after scenes of parties and Robert being tortured with ust and Serena being totally naive There was a juxtaposition of sweet writing with jarring seuences of Robert s ustful thinking It did not go together2 Robert was a huge ass He The Book of Air lusted constantly and then manipulated the situation to get what he wanted knowing Serena would not agree And then he actedike a high handed boor afterwards Ugh3 After the sham engagement everyone agrees to flee London until Robert professes ove This was an ok read It was book three in the series and it would work as a stand alone since I had not read the previous books and I was not ost at allI iked Robert uite a bit He was a bit high handed in the way he proposed to Lady Serena and the immediate actions but he overcame it and turned out to be a really ikable hero Lady Serena The Seduction of Miranda Prosper left me wondering Here she was a 26 year old woman who seemedike a teenager when she got to London for her very first season Yet when Robert finally got her to his family home her maturity showedThere was a good bit of drama in here First when Serena The Warrior Princess of Pennyroyal Academy left Robert after his proposal you ve got to read the book to see what the drama is there LOL then when Robert gets Serena to their home and there s a problem with some missing boys andastly the drama at the wedding I felt that ast ittle bit at the wedding was too much and not neededI really would have iked to see some sort of conclusion that dealt with Serena s brother and sister in aw and her All in all not a bad book and I Elizabeth I ll probably read by this author ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley THIS NOVEL WILL BE RELEASED ON 14 JANUARY 2014I consider myself a big Marriage Game s admirer and if you haven t had the opportunity or the to impulse to read the first two romances of the series The Seduction of Lady Phoebe and The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh I heartily recommend themWell The Temptation of Lady Serena outdid the precedents it s amazingRobert is one of the most realistic and interesting characters I ve ever read about but I must say I don t know why the men in this series are always better than the women with better I mean the final result and the general idea of the character and not a specific aspect the female characters with the story development become too perfect this is clearer with Anna Marsh andess evident with Lady Serena who I appreciated a otWow I already had the opportunity to see how Ella uinn is good and brilliant when it comes to the emotional part of her romances but in The temptation on Lady Serena she surprised me the emotions here are so Strong The Reader that reader actually feel them Robert s torment his doubts his strong and obvious ove he doesn t want to admit his obsessionare amazingly described and expressed I felt all of themRobert is so unprepared that he acts stupidly and the realisation of how autocratic he can be and the following regret create splendid moments between our two protagonistsI Theres Always a Trail / Home in the Valley liked Serena her background is really interesting and Ioved her behaviour especially at the beginning I totally sympathise with her reasonsThere s only one critic I d ike to do as in Anna Marsh I don t get why the author spent so much time with interludes some of them are really funny and useful to better appreciate the characters but in other occasions they make the storyline heavierTO READ THE COMPLETE REVIEW my ink text I received an Advanced Reader Copy ARC of this book courtesy of NetGalley and Kensington Books in exchange
