Reread Review: Ravished by Amanda Quick
Dubbed the Beast of Blackthorne Hall for his scarred face and lecherous past, Gideon was strong and fierce and notoriously menacing. Yet Harriet could not find it in her heart to fear him. For in his tawny gaze she sensed a savage pain she longed to soothe . . . and a searing passion she yearned to answer. Now, caught up in the Beast’s clutches, Harriet must find a way to win his heart–and evade the deadly trap of a scheming villain who would see them parted for all time.
I love and miss the older books by Amanda Quick. I'm not really into the time period she writes about now so the only way to get a fix is by rereading all how older books. Happily, there are enough to keep me busy for a bit since she's not the only one I'm rereading.
I totally love Ravished. It's such a wonderful story with enjoyable characters.
Harriet is a force to be reckoned with. You'll love how here she is in a way a commoner who's telling a lord what to do. And he does it! Sadly she doesn't listen when he tells her to stay out of it and ends up having to marry the lord. Appearances and all that.
Gideon is a total mysteries hero. He's scared and has a past that won't go away. He's totally treated unfairly but everyone including his parents. That is all but for Harriet. She doesn't believe any of the gossips and thinks everyone has it all wrong. See, she loved him before she even knew it.
These two go on a wonderful ride of getting to know each other and having the world understand that they really do care about each other. You see that in the way he indulgence Harriet and how she stands for him against everyone.
