I have read quite a few Jo Beverly books. At this point of time, i feel this one might have been the worst I read so far. It was soo booring. The main character so un-relatable. I understand that these books are set in victorian times and as such the mental makeup and situations may not relate to present day. However for a reader to dig in to a book, they have to relate to the character, the conflict or even anything in the book. For me this was a complete miss. ( )

Rape is not romantic. ( )

This book is somewhat confusing., and perhaps suffers from being a romance rather than a drama. However, there are significant disturbing bits - enough that make it difficult to like the full book as a romance. Examples include the heroine's acceptance of being raped, her easy capitulation to continuing sexual congress, her acceptable of the pregnancy,... and more. The whole husband seducing another woman even as part of his job is pretty ew factor as well. Moves parts of the book into doormat territory. She fights little and worries bout putshing her husband "too far".

If the r book were more geared towards a drama, then I would have less issue with some of it. But the ew factor and doormat tendencies just stalls huge sections of it for me. ( )

This was the first book I've ever read by Ms Beverley and I was unfamiliar with either her name or her work when I picked it out at random. So, no expectations (apart from an enjoyable read) and no preconceptions.

The rape of Eleanor in the first few pages was unpleasant and confusing. This confusion grew with the circumstances of her improbably speedy recovery from the trauma -- even allowing for her being drugged during the ordeal -- and the facile appearance of a handsome and dashing gallant who offers her marriage and a way out of her moral ruin. The confusion turned to disbelief with the all-too-smooth consummation of the marriage.

I might have given up at this point, but the story of Nicholas' mysterious comings and goings caught my interest. The effect of his clandestine disappearances on Eleanor (and on him) took second place to the story of the plots and conspiracies in which he was enmeshed.

At some point in the book, the mystery and suspense edged out the romance. I have no idea whether this is what Ms Beverley had in mind when she wrote the novel.

As a debut work, [b:An Arranged Marriage|765920|An Arranged Marriage (Company of Rogues, #1)|Jo Beverley|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1178160219s/765920.jpg|751988] deserves to be rated highly. The narrative is well paced and populated with a few memorable characters, especially the indomitable Miss Hurstmann. On the other hand, many of the other characters seem otiose, and I found myself having to thumb back a few pages to sort out their identities. I see from the reviews here on Goodreads that [b:An Arranged Marriage|765920|An Arranged Marriage (Company of Rogues, #1)|Jo Beverley|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1178160219s/765920.jpg|751988] is the first of a series, so perhaps the cast of thousands is there for a purpose, though I'm not sure I found any of them interesting enough to want to read an entire novel in which they take centre role -- apart from Miss Hurstmann, that is.

More like 1 1/2 stars. A train wreck in slow motion. Which is a shame because in the end the two main characters are likeable. Especially Eleanor. Nicholas also doesn't really fit the mold of Regency hero. Still, the plot is hicky and gruesome. What's more infuriating is that the author knew that writing a rape Regency romance, even in the late 1990s, was somewhat borderline. The sad thing is that I've read good Regency romance from this writer. Just not this one. ( )
