Alleigh BurrowsOverview by Nivea is determined to convince Lord Landis love and betrayal are not synonymousThe only tangible benefit Dare Landis has of finally claiming the title of Maruis of Raynsforth will be that the current maruis has finally gone to the Devil where he belongs Until then Lord Landis will continue to enjoy life on his own termsas a heartless rake who s beholden to no oneNivea Horsham knows there s to Dare than he reveals to the world She s loved him since her older brother brought his ridiculously handsome friend home from school all those years ago But getting him to notice her has proven to be an impossible endeavorIs it possible for Nivea to shatter Dare s carefully crafted facade and show him how to loveIt s great when you read a book and you love the hero You enjoy reading about him like him and enjoy his transformation from rogue to husband material Sometimes though it s even better when you really can t stand the male character for most of the book Some male rogues are arrogant and entitled but Dare takes this to a whole new level He is an ass most of the time He is disparaging to most of the people he interacts with he thinks his acuaintances are boring and he uses and discards women with alarming hasteYou know there must be some reason he is like this Some men are just mean but as the reader you hope that deep down there is something so damaging in is past that he has built up this defence You desperately hope this because you know there is no other way that you will like him or believe in the romance of the characters It took a long time with Dare There are reasons that have made him the way he is and it takes the strength of Nivea to bring it outI love when the main character is not a tall willowy blond Nivea is on the plump side and a plain jane She is firmly on the shelf and has no prospects for marriage It doesn t matter to her as her family loves and adores her just the way she is The only thing they don t get about her is her lack of enthusiasm for horses the family business She is excited for her sister to wed a man she is crazy about The family is growing and happy Like most girls she developed a teenage crush on her brother s friend Dare Over the years it has not abated She knows that she is the last woman on earth he would ever look at but hope can be a dangerous thingNivea must travel with Dare to her sister s wedding It s a calamity She is so excited at the prospect but Dare treats her with such cruelty and disinterest it s heartbreaking What made it bearable was the surprise and delight Nivea turned out to be Dare may be stuck in his ways but she is changing and growing Forced to ride a horse for days which was her worst nightmare she finds the positive in a situation that most women would give up The wedding celebration is a few weeks in the country Almost right away Dare has a dalliance with one of the guests This is why it was so hard to like Dare He isn t a likeable person He s rude and cutting to Nivea and others He ends up spending time with Nivea almost of out boredom but upon reflection realizes that she is a calming presence and makes him feel remorse for probably the first time in yearsBored out of his mind he agrees to help Nivea learn to ride He hates himself for thinking of her He loathes the fact that he finds her skin beautiful and her smell intoxicating A few kisses leave him so conflicted and torn about what on earth is going on inside him Nivea is beyond astounded that she has his attention and passion She knows who Dare is but she can t help but hope Hope is a dangerous thing Aghast at his actions Dare seduces Nivea It was spectacular It happens again and again and Dare is beside himself at what he s doing It s Nivea the one woman who should be safe from him People would laugh at him if they knew what he was doingThe time they spend together unravels the mystery of Dare He was raised in a horrible abusive family He became a jerk as a strong defense mechanism The only person he shares the details of his young life is with Nivea When there is a misunderstanding orchestrated by the lady he seduced his first night at the wedding he blames Nivea His words are harsh and abominable He also has harsh despicable words for her brother demonstrating once again what a mean person he can beThey part on poor terms Dare returns to London and to his life as fast as he can However once back his usual haunts his usual activities and proclivities no longer held the allure and relief he sought He didn t understand what was happening to him until his friend claims that the impossible has happened and Dare has been snared by a woman He vehemently denies it but the he ponders his life he realizes that he misses Nivea She made him comfortable and happy He misses her enthusiasm for life and her very lush curves Dare is changing He wants to see Nivea but for the first time in his life he is unsure of how to proceed Things ended badly and he doesn t know how to make amends Finally the evolution of the character is happening As the reader we know about his family we know about his struggles and we know his weaknesses I felt at this point in the book that maybe he now deserved the love Nivea would give himHe devotes himself to winning Nivea after he realizes that some other man may see what he found in her Jealously is a powerful motivation He makes amends to her family humbling himself in the process It was so fun to see this stiff arrogant man willingly put himself as the object of ridicule in order to win forgiveness Nivea has always loved him and has missed him deeply She accepts his apology and is amazed at the very public attention he showers on her He gets her alone and they reunite in a passion fueled carriage ride They have amazing sex lucky Nivea She is honoured and worshipped by him and he likes to teach her all the tricks he knows Dare s horrid family rears its ugly head He has had no contact with them in years but he is summoned as his father is dying and has arranged a wedding for him I was SO proud of Dare when he defies these orders takes the courage to face all his friends and propose to Nivea in front of everyone He has been playing the perfect suitor for weeks with a ring in his pocket waiting for the right moment He likely would have liked to have had privacy for proposing but he declares his love and intentions to all With Nivea at his side he deals with his terrible family Her love and support strengthens him and he manages to get through the toughest time He has changed as a character so much and now it was hard not to love his smirk and laugh He believed in being a unit and found that Nivea was the best partner for himWhen you read a book about a rake and rogue they usually change pretty uickly Dare was a nasty piece of work It was very hard to find any redeeming ualities in him beside his abilities in the bedroom Love with the least likely woman changed him profoundly As a reader it was a realistic plot line that felt like a natural progression as Dare came to realize that a treasure Nivea was I really enjoyed that they were not Ken and Barbie While he is handsome and attractive Nivea was like the average woman who struggles with her weight and isn t the bell of the ball It was delightful that she could capture the scandalous Lord DareI enjoyed this story as it had me feeling so many emotions I was angry at Dare hurt for Nivea hopefully for both and elated at promise of a wonderful ending For a first book the author has a real talent for weaving an entertaining tale that tugs at the heartstrings and takes you away to the fantasy of romanceReviewed for wwwkiltsandswordscom
