Ravished - Amanda Quick

This is one I can see myself reading over and over again.

 

I LOVED this book. I loved the relationship between our leads, Harriet and Gideon. I love the fact that Harriet was such a steadfast and staunch defender of Gideon's. She leapt  to his defense (literally and figuratively) whenever anyone dared to speak ill of him. After hearing about his reputation very early in the book, she made up her own mind about him by his words and actions. And her trust in him would not be shaken. As for Gideon, it was heartening watching him come out from the darkness and realize the treasure he had in this woman who trusted and believed in him implicitly when not even his own parents did. The wonder and awe he felt was palpable. They had such a spark, and I many of their interactions had me grinning from ear to ear. 

 

This was just a very low angst book, romance wise, and I really, really enjoyed that. There was no Big Misunderstanding, neither of them were at all inclined to automatically believe the worst of the other, once they were together, they were together.

 

The only thing that kept me from giving this five stars is the fact that Harriet did have a few moments that were pretty much TSTL moments, and I felt it took Gideon far too long to confess his love for Harriet. I understand he'd been horribly, horribly burned in the past, but still.

 

I am using this book for this following square:

 

 

Book themes for Bon Om Touk: Read a book that takes place on the sea, near the sea, or on a lake or a river, or read a book that has water on the cover.

"The inevitable?", he demanded hoarsely. "Is that what you call it? Is that how you envision our lovemaking? An inevitable duty?"

 

"It was not unpleasant," she assured him quickly. "I did not mean to insult you. It was actually quite exciting in some ways. It definitely had its moments."

 

"Thank you," Gideon murmured dryly. "I tried."

 

"I know you did. One must make allowances for the uncomfortable bed we shared. I suppose. I do not imagine a rock floor is conducive to lovemaking."

 

I'll stop here, but this whole discussion has me cracking up. I love these two!

The heroine had a couple of slight TSTL moments earlier in the book, but I'm willing to overlook them because I am enjoying the interplay between her and the hero so damn much.
