Really good bookBy 3% I had to stop at least 4 times to laugh out loud at Oliver s silly drunken thoughts then again at his funny thoughts when he had a hangover And I like the fact that he was a pretty happy guy while Lisbeth was kind of snarky because of the beatings she took from her late husband She did feel a lot of desire for Oliver but she was always wondering if he d be just like Nathanial had been The episode in the wardrobe was kinda steamy but left unfinished which I loved Always leave um wanting Her grandmother What a biotch I would never have forgiven her no matter what Nor Lisbeth s sister either Family back then didn t mean much just your status in the ton Even after all was forgiven I still couldn t like the grandmother or Marie They snubbed her when they were really needed and that s all I could see I liked Tony too He seemed like a good friend It was pretty obvious who the killer was but it was still a good storyAnd her obsession with her watch and the clocks in the house She drove me nuts right along with Oliver The main thing wrong with this book was the lack of dialogue then 18 20 25 pages of just telling a story or someone s inner thoughts That s when I find myself skimming It was a good story but it just needed someone talking often That being said I can t see myself reading anything else by this author if she writes another book I like the players to be involved not someone telling me a storyOne BAD thing about this book was that when someone spoke there were NEVER uotation marks Everything said began and ended in an apostrophe It threw me off for a while but I finally got used to it I guess that s how they do it in Australia I don t knowThe sexual tension between Oliver and Lisbeth was just awesome along with the sex they had Devoted to Drew your status in the ton Even after all was forgiven I still couldn t like the grandmother or Marie They snubbed her when they were really needed and that s all I could see I liked Tony too He seemed like a good friend It was pretty obvious who the killer was but it was still a good storyAnd her obsession with her watch and the clocks in the house She drove me nuts right along with Oliver The main thing wrong with this book was the lack of dialogue then 18 20 25 pages of just telling a story or someone s inner thoughts That s when I find myself skimming It was a good story but it just needed someone talking often That being said I can t see myself reading anything else by this author if she writes another book I like the players to be involved not someone telling me a storyOne BAD thing about this book was that when someone spoke there were NEVER uotation marks Everything said began and ended in an apostrophe It threw me off for a while but I finally got used to it I guess that s how they do it in Australia I don t knowThe sexual tension between Oliver and Lisbeth was just awesome along with the sex they had

The Black Raven bringer of bad luck and death she is eviscerated by the gossips and mocked in the clubsShe’s also the subject of London’s most scandalous wagerOliver Whitely Earl of Bellamy needs money but it takes than a few drinks to take on The Black Raven Wager He finds himself drunk at her house and surprisingly agreeing to a business proposal. It was interesting to read this just after the Suzanne Enoch of the same general plot line investigating the death of a husband Where the Enoch was full bodied and interesting this lacked action character development and forward progress We spent the entire book in the heads of two not so captivating characters and their constant thoughts became painful bludgeons I just wanted something to actually happen
