review A Well Favored Gentleman Christina Dodd ☆ 3 read & download review Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Christina Dodd Where has she been The rumors fly throughout the Scottish countryside about Lady Alanna the beautiful and mysterious displaced mistress of Fionnaway Manor And now she has emerged from hiding only to find her beloved estate besieged by greedy relativesand coveted by a darkly handsome En. I m surprised to see this book referred to as paranormal romance I happen to dislike paranormal and was disappointed when Christina Dodd began to write about shape shifters etc so feel compelled to defend this delicious historical romance A Well Favored Gentleman has a great deal in common with Dodd s delightful and steamy Governess Brides series than with her paranormal series Yes there is a touch of myth and magic here inspired by local lore but the story doesn t really hinge on this Rather the selkie legend adds to the atmosphere of a particular place and time This next part is SPOILERISH but only to the extent that might help readers who dislike paranormal choose not to miss out on this book for the wrong reason If the well favored gentleman of the title is exceptionally beautiful charming and determined not to be separated from his chosen mate maybe it s because he s descended from a long ago doomed union between a human and a selkie the irresistibly enchanting sea creature of Celtic coastal mythology Dodd s story doesn t hinge on our believing in the myth It s just a magical idea that happens to parallel certain aspects of the Hh relationship Selkies in the authentic myth not invented by Dodd as a basis for her novel were enchanted seals who could live briefly as human beings of ethereal beauty In order to keep a selkie as his wife the man who fell in love with her would have to play a cruel trick stealing and hiding her seal skin so she couldn t return to the sea When the bad boy hero of A Well Favored Gentleman uses less than honorable methods to secure his bride there is an implicit relationship between his behavior and the act of the long ago male ancestor who tricked captured wed loved and finally lost a magical selkie bride That s pretty much the extent of this novel s paranormal influence a poignant and bittersweet backstory that makes us long for an HEA This book and it s companion novel A Well Pleasured Lady both can stand alone are among my favorites in a long history as a fan of Christina Dodd s sexy witty and beautifully crafted historicals Even when her bad boy characters behave abominably they can t uite hide the intrinsic goodness at their core And instead of making us loathe them until some Big Misunderstanding is resolved Dodd redeems her male protagonists in time so that we can enjoy seeing their women enslave them in return Recommended especially to fans of Connie Brockway s historicals I think Dodd and Brockway have done a book or two together their styles are complementary and both excel at gentle humor sharp repartee and luscious sex scenes

I admit I m not too fond of paranormal romance I like a good ol historical romance without any magic and such I came to a conclusion that I wouldn t have minded it too much Maybe that s part of the reason the book did not sell to me But what mostly bothered me was SPOILER SPOILER the heroine being taken in her sleep OO I just really cannot fathom how this can be considered romantic There were some nice and funny parts though I liked the Dream of me part and Ian s confession But I think their pairing lacked some chemistry

review A Well Favored Gentleman Christina Dodd ☆ 3 read & download review Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Christina Dodd E her houseNow with skill and charm Ian must penetrate the lady's defenses and boldly lay claim to her body and spirit But first he must prove himself worthy and he holds the power to enchant and delight inflame and inspireand to convince this lady her true home is in her lover's heart. In the second book in the Well Pleasured series Ian Fairchild arrives at Fionnaway Manor in Scotland at his dying father s behest As one of the infamous Fairchilds he s an illegitimate son trapped in a cruel family who taunts him and makes him feel inferior He s also part Selkie and has abandonment issues since his seal shifter mother left him when he was a childLady Alanna MacLeod is the long lost rightful heir and mistress of the manor She ran away four years ago to escape an unsuitable marriage and now plans to return on her twenty first birthday to take control of the manor and her lands Unfortunately for her Ian wants her property just as badly as she does He s the son and heir to the cruel Leslie Fairchild Alanna s guardian When she returns Ian knows he ll only get the property through marriage so he sets out to seduce her I couldn t relate to Alanna and Ian They re both strong stubborn characters but they constantly butted heads He s so desperate for a home and a place to belong that he selfishly seduces her without a care to her wants and needs Likewise she s so na ve and hopeful to win back her home from Leslie that she can t see all the problems ahead of her As a land owning woman in her time period she doesn t have many rights and needs a husband to secure her future It s not right or fair but that s how things worked Given her options I found her very foolish for not giving Ian a chance to prove himself Also the age difference irked me She s 21 and he s 34 It was a little much for me Though I liked parts of this book I don t understand why Alanna and Ian catered to Leslie who was an absolutely horrible person He despises his son and makes everyone around him miserable In the previous book he even had a woman s hand chopped off as a jokeAs with the first book this one is considered politically incorrect Maybe I m just jaded but I didn t think this one was that bad Yes Ian sleeps with Alanna and takes her virginity when she s drugged and unable to consent but he didn t hurt her and she was awake enough to moan in pleasure even though she thought the experience was a wonderful dream I agree what he did was wrong but I ve read much worse in other books I wish Sebastian and Mary from book one would ve made an appearance Ian s cousin Wilda was here and she s childish than I remember Still I liked the development of her character I enjoyed the history of the Selkies the description of the Highland landscape and the Hh s romance once they finally worked through their differences I would ve liked an epilogue or some detail about how the Selkie pact will change since the death of one of the guardians There s one book in the series a novella in the Scottish Brides anthology and I look forward to reading it 3 Stars
