Lord Lightning Astrology #1

Eduction with a pinch of the paranormal In this fabulous Regency Era set tale a handsome cold hearted rake insists that the beautiful astrologer whose predictions drove away his mistress take her place in his bed. Although I have absolutely no belief in astrology etc that didn t put me off reading this novel I liked the way Edward was portrayed as damaged and outwardly cold but really someone who was vulnerable and looking for real love However the actual plot about Edward needing a mistress when he went to stay at his mother s house didn t sound real to me and Eliza was all too uick to fall madly in lustI was also surprised that mistresses were not expected to be able to read or to have decent table manners Whores yes but surely mistresses were of better uality The real objection I had to the story was the ending view spoiler I found it utterly preposterous that someone who had been as badly abused as Edward emotionally as well as physically by his mother could forgive her It doesn t happen like that I wanted a realistic ending I wanted his mother to get her just desserts because dammit NO ONE would forgive what she did And considering that Edward s mother or less sold Eliza into sexual slavery I could not see Eliza willing to marry a man who condoned that behaviour Also Eliza is supposed to be from some famous family and yet her father was about to be thrown into debtors jail and was known as a penniless gambler It just didn t hang together in my mind hide spoiler
