Roselyn Longworth gave up her dignity when she became the mistress of her brother's creditor. She was saved and brought back to society's graces by again one of her brother's creditors.I read the book, but was disappointed. I was enticed by the books description and I felt in the beginning, the story line was developing. Towards the middle of the book, I just wanted it to end. ( )

Que bela surpresa me saiu esta compra. Nunca tinha lido coisa alguma da autora, e confesso que comprei este livro porque estava na posição nº4 de um Top de vendas, dado que já tinha os que figuravam nos três primeiros lugares, deixei-me levar pelo público. E ainda bem que o fiz.
Como em todas as estreias na vida, primeiro estranhei - estou tão habituada à fantasia e aos clássicos que outro estilo de escrita e seu conteúdo, me espantam sempre - depois entranhei.
Totalmente desprovido de bláblá disparatado ou qualquer outra forma dispensável de rodeios para gastar papel e exasperar o leitor - ou na gíria comum "encher chouriços" - Jogos de Sedução (já agora que título terrível...se não tivesse lido a sinopse provavelmente teria optado pelo nº5 do Top...no original é Secrets of Surrender, custava assim tanto traduzir à letra e chamar-lhe Segredos de Rendição ou coisa do género?Não é que soe muito melhor mas...) conta-nos a sua história de uma maneira rápida e eficaz sobrando muito tempo e espaço para as noites de Kyle e Roselyn. Sim, o livro possui uma forte vertente sexual. Não, não é ordinário ou obsceno. Muito pelo contrário.
Acontece que, as personagens principais deste livro vão-se conhecendo, entendendo, habituando, confiando um no outro, ao longo das sucessivas noites de paixão que vão partilhar no seu casamento precoce. Noites tanto eróticas como doces. Há também uma história, uma história bem construída que de uma maneira ou de outra vai interligar todas as personagens que nos são dadas a conhecer para além dos protagonistas. Queremos saber o desfecho dela, porque a felicidade dos pombos depende disso.
4 estrelas, está claro. ( )

After reading The Rules of Seduction, and really liking it, I was looking forward to Rose's story. Rose is the cousin of Alexia, the heroine of TROS. After Rose's brother squandered all of the family's money, and stole from the accounts of many others, her family suffered ruin. Her brother fled, leaving Rose and her younger sister, Irene, to fend for themselves. Luckily, they had the help of Alexia, who offered financial support to her cousins.

Rose, for whatever reason, naively takes up with a man, Norbury. Unknown to her Norbury is one of the people who's account her brother had stolen money from. Though Norbury had been made whole he can not resist a chance at exploiting the sister of the thief. He uses her and when he's had his fill, he decides to sell her off to the highest bidder.

Kyle has seen Rose before and was captivated by her beauty. Being that Rose's station was far above his, he could never act on that attraction, regardless of her lack of financial wealth. Not able to watch Rose get sold off to a harsh fate, Kyle steps in and saves her. He is successful in getting her away from Norbury but Rose knows that there is nothing to be done about her now ruined reputation. That is until Kyle proposes a marriage of convenience.

I really struggled with this book, not because the writing wasn't good (it was), but because I was unable to connect with the characters. I read about their feelings, suffering, and love, but never felt it. I've read a few Hunter books and this is the first one where the heroine and hero, came off dry. The beginning of their story was promising but as it progressed it seemed that the characters were simply going through the motions, which bored me. I became disconnected with the characters, and sometimes with the story as a whole.

Something else that I'm not exactly sure if I liked is that there was never any "I love you" exchanges. Despite the lack of oomph between the two, Rose and Kyle's relationship progressed naturally enough that I knew that they loved each other. Still, to never actually have them say it... I don't know. Maybe I'm old fashioned and like to have those words exchanged.

I was also bothered by the bit of information that Norbury shared with Kyle through a letter. It was a BIG revelation/accusation but it never received any other mention. Something of that magnitude, I think, deserved further exploration. That it never got it was disappointing.

Rose and Kyle were strong enough characters to have a great story. Sadly, I felt that the potential they had was never realized ( )
