Realms of nightmare For the perfumed silks of her master's bedchamber concealed the depravity of n unbalanced mind Only swift nd bru. ,
A fierce ttraction to each other nd neither is willing to dmit it nd it takes the two of them through murders nd other dangers nd complications sometimes self inflicted since this is nominally romanceMy gripes re few since this was beautifully engrossing book There re coincidences nd conveniences throughout lthough Felipe Trist n s backstory comes into the plot nd is revealed uite tidily towards the end bit too HEA for my tastes Juana stupidly charges right into danger often though lways manages to escape sometimes without id so bully for her nd he nd Juana s distrust of each other continues right until lmost the very last page It was bit nnoying to still have them t loggerheads so close to the end but eh whatever There s lot that makes up for itThe sex isn t graphic no weeping members or dewy lady petals nd I thought it was made intense nd smokin for it especially the first encounter between Felipe nd Juana Caveat lector it s borderline rapeforced seduction Three words nd verb had me fanning myself Although there were some bodice ripper elements Denys style was unlike what is typical of pure historical romance nd so it really is in category of its ownIf you like overwhelming nd dominating heroes plenty of intrigue nd tension with n intriguing portrait of glorious Spain in decline then it s worth scrounging up copy They re expensive 31 nd up so try library loan It s how I got my copy nd now I ve got to read bout the Habsburg dynasty Ever see the lineage of the last Spanish Habsburg king Not whole lot of branches in that there family treeThis book review has been provided by the No Book Left Behind Campaign A Bodice Ripper Readers Anonymous group initiative to review the un reviewed Whoathis romance could never be written today LOL Felipe Tristan is so dark nd unscrupulous He has no ualms bout going fter what he wants So yes there is boatload of dubious consent nd it s very dubious So be forewarned If you hate that kind of thing you won t like this book With my penchant for bad guys though I found Tristan damn intriguing He has nasty scar cross his cheek I got the impression it was half Glasgow grin like the Joker which made me like him even Denys describes him s having great deal of menace nd icy control He speaks to Juana with veiled courtesy so she s never uite sure where she stands with him Although the reader does I rather love the way Denys writes There s n elouence nd sensuality to her prose that gives the reader the feel nd mbiance of 17th century Spain I remember in the beginning Denys describes the Duue s estate Casillo Benaventes with its iron balustrades nd the gaudy frescos nd I felt like I had been transported there Her characters ddress each other with formality nd stiffness that feels like nother time period And everybody is so shifty nd underhanded Poor Juana de Arrelanos the heroine has been dropped into snake pit As for the heroine I didn t mind Juana She does couple of stupid things that made me shake my head nd I thought she was rather rude to Tristan t first Yet that fits seeing how she s proud young noblewoman Her character does go through character rc nd her perception definitely changes At first she truly can t stand the sight of Tristan nd she s every bit the highborn lady I remember reading in nother book bout how when the Spanish ladies of the court walked cross room it ppeared s if their shirts were floating cross the floor I can believe Juana does this 1 What did you think of the plotstory line this 1 What did you think of the plotstory line thought the storyline was bit like The Perils of Pauline Juana gets in one life threatening scrape fter nother This is especially true of the last half of the book which I couldn t set down Yet it s not lways Tristan saving her Denys surprised me few times because things didn t lways turn out the way you might expect She s very unpredictable uthor2 What was your favoriteleast favorite part view spoilerMy favorite part was the end when Tristan nd Juana finally came together nd dmitted their love I don t think I ve read n ending so satisfying since Pride nd Prejudice It felt so good to have these two finally talk everything out I ctually read the end twiceMy least favorite part was how the character of Bartolome was handled Every horrible trait imaginable was handed to him Not only is he horribly disfigured nd mentally slow he s sadistic pervert I think it s so unfair to make him not only look monstrous but be monstrous on the inside I would have preferred if he had been handled with little bit compassion Although for the plot to move s it did he had to be cruel hide spoiler For my comments nd uotes while I read way in depth look t my thoughts Buddy Read The Flesh nd the DevilThe beginning of this was really enjoyable there was great eerie Gothic tone that had mysteries nd villains seemingly in the shadows everywhere with our young extremely sheltered heroine Juana betrothed to lunatic Unfortunately the mysteries nd villains get wrapped up perfectly uickly nd lot of things happen disappointingly off screen The middle introduces new of things happen disappointingly off screen The middle introduces new but gain dealt with pretty uickly nd from there things kind of meander into n unceremoniously mellow with dded too perfect bow moment ending The romantic relationship between the leads started off with some heat spark nd burn s they clashed but then in Bodice Ripper fashion the hero rapes the heroine the uthor clearly writes this s rape with minimal Juana foggily in her mind thinking her body could be responding nd with not lot of emotional growthconnection featuring la More than bodice ripper this classic set in 17th century Spain is KeeperThis was my second by Denys nd it s nother stunningly dramatic story set in 17th century Spain nd very worthy read It tells the story of beautiful Juana de Arrelanos eldest daughter of successful merchant who betroths her to the mysterious Bartolom Duue de Valenzuela to gain title But Juana s heart belongs to her childhood sweetheart Jaime de Nueva nd she naively hopes to persuade the Duue to let her leave when he learns she is unwillingWhen she rrives t the sprawling edifice that is Castillo Be. Tal ction by scar faced Felipe the rrogant protector could conjure her escape but his protection she finds demands humiliating paymen. ,
