Hate the hero
The Courtesan Duchess - Joanna Shupe
For more quotes and comments - Buddy Read Courtesan Duchess



Hero marries young heroine, leaves before they even consummate wedding night and stays away for YEARS. Why? His father made him get married because he wants to make sure hero continues the family line. Hero does not want to continue line because he hates his father. Why hero didn't just leave before getting married? I don't know. 

Heroine is left to the horrible mother-in-law who doesn't live in their home and gets a stipend controlled by the cousin who wants the dukedom to himself. Realizing she has to do something to insure her and her aunt aren't left destitute in the streets by the getting worse cousin. Heroine decides to get hero's friend, who she has becomes friends with too, to bring her to hero in Italy and pretend to be a courtesan and get pregnant, with hopefully a boy so she can gain control of the dukedom's riches. 

What follows is a bunch of sex that I skimmed because the insta-lust was immediate and I didn't feel connected or that I knew the hero and heroine to let alone feel connected to them as a couple. I honestly felt the hero was trash and he never redeemed himself. After he finds out the courtesan he was hot for was his wife, he calls her a whore and then thinks she was pregnant by some other dude and was trying to pass it off as his. He stays away from her as we get massive month jumps and only shows up when she goes into labor. He was staying away because if she gave birth too early he would know the baby wasn't his. He never grows to trust the heroine's word. 

I do like the set-up of the abandoned wife taking charge to get hers or what seems like in this case, survival but the hero was just absolutely trash. The writing fundamentals were good but wasn't a fan of the plot or characterizations.

Here's my first eBook...

Hi all,

 

Here's my first eBook available via these two links below:

 

At PayHip: https://payhip.com/cedany

 

At KOBO UK: https://www.kobo.com/gb/en/ebook/trieste-her-journey-from-dawn-until-forever

 

THE WYNDERMYRE MEMOIRS OFFICIAL SHORT DESCRIPTION: The WynderMyre Memoirs -- an epistolary fantasy novel series! The use of multiple narrators (nearly all of the WynderMyre Family) draws on CeDany's Story-Telling-around-the-fire-style from her Father and of her Creative Writing training, and as she points out here: "the story presented will be told by more than one pen, as the diary-stories are found by Lady Trieste WynderMyre before her 20th birthday -- a discovery of things she never knew -- truths will be lies and lies will be truths.

 

 

The one year sale is now OVER and the new prices are up on both sites.

 

The £1 eBook is a preview of all the Prologues from the full Novel One/Trieste-Her Journey. If you just want to fund me, this is the one to get as I will use the money to acquire my ISBNs. So thank you in advance.

 

Novel One/Episode One is available now and Novel One/Episode Two will be up soon on both sites.

 

Also, I'm planning two surprises coming up, hopefully in June and the Merchandise site is looking sharp. I'll let you know when that is up.

 

Back to the grinding-stone or simply -- nose in the book LOL!

 

Yours in blood, CeDany, BB, V-V!

 

P.S. the URL here links you to all my sites:

A Feast For Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire #4)
A Feast for Crows - George R.R. Martin

Oh, book, I wish I knew how to quit you. :P

 

This is the shortest book so far in the series. I originally thought I'd have it finished by early April. Yes, real life stuff got in the way and I had to go some weeks without reading even a single chapter, but I wasn't exactly pining to get back to Westeros like I was in ASOS, and I think the main reason for that was the POV switches.

 

There was too much time spent with horrible, awful characters (all of the Ironmen, Cersei) and not enough of the characters I wanted to spend time with (virtually everyone else). It was cool to see Dorne, but without a single focal point for those chapters it felt just as hodgepodge as the Ironborn ones did. As for Cersei, I had hopes for her POV when her chapters started, but good lord y'all. She is Trump in a dress. No thank you. The ending was sweet but not worth the journey to get there.

 

However, I loved getting to see Brienne's POV, though it was often depressing, because she's such an amazing character and easily my favorite of the favorites (sorry Samwell). Hell, I enjoyed being in Jaime's head. Somewhere along the way I started rooting for that turdmeister and he didn't disappoint. Watching him snark at everyone was a real treat too. I wanted to see a lot more of Arya and Samwell. Not so much Sansa, but that's mostly because of Littlefinger and not Sansa herself.

 

And what the hell was that prologue about? It set up absolutely nothing else that happened in the book from what I could tell. Weird.

 

I had such high hopes for a Brienne-Catelyn action duo too. :(

 

So lots of awful, which is par for the course, but not enough of the good guys to balance out the bad. 

 

The top five Worst Evers for this book:

Cersei 

Qyburn 

Lord Tarly 

Euron Crow Eye 

Victarion
