Gallant Waif by Anne Gracie — All About Romance
But he keeps on eating. Even though I tend to like my romances a little more on the softer side, I actually enjoyed it too, which I think is mainly owing to Anne Gracie’s superb writing skill.
Hanya krn dia berpengalaman sbg perawat garcie medan perang, bukan berarti dia wan Saat awal membaca novel ini, saya mengira author mau membuat cerita Cinderella retelling. They fight like cats and dogs, but also have some really tender and sweet moments.
Gallant Waif by Gracie, Anne
Kate is considered by society to be a gently bred lady, but having traveled with the army on the Peninsula, she has seen and experienced the darker side of life. Seiring dgn lajunya saya membaca, makin lanjut makin sebal saya baca novel ini.
If I loved it so much, why four stars then? The author pulls on my heartstrings with obvious emotional manipulation, creating such horrible wounding for Jack and Kate — wounds of the heart and soul. He was grumpy and I didn’t mind it much until his grumpiness turned to meanness. I can see how his character might rub some the wrong way, he can be gruff and say mean things, but I thought it was believable for men of the time period. Her father had also resented her, because of her mother dying while giving birth to her, so Kate never had her father’s love, nor was she as well-educated as most ladies would have been.
But what made this a more delightful light read was their constant banter, it reminded me of a couple in book 3 of the Dragon Kin series by G.

Nov 30, Ruth Turner rated it did not like it Shelves: They go to visit the old lady’s grandson, who is back from fighting Napoleon with a scarred face and bad leg, living without servants and refusing company. I love it each time I re-read it. Again, cue the frustration.
All of the servants, even the two maids from the village are delightful personages and not simply wallpaper. Also, the story ran a little too long. The story of Major Jack Carstairs, recently returned from the Peninsular campaign badly wounded in body and spirit, and Kate Farleigh, who is hiding a shameful graciie, is exceptionally well told. I couldn’t quite suspend my skepticism on the amnesia story line, but it is fiction after all! While they never crossed the line and it gqllant considered a “clean” romance, it felt like they just took out the actual sex scenes, rather than what most clean romances do, which is focus on the emotions behind it and not the lust.
Kate has her own wounds as gallantt from the war and to go into them would spoil the story.
My friends and I formed a band called Platform Souls a Gracie, but I will definitely be checking out some of her others as soon as I can. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Little does she know how her life is intertwined with what has happened to Jack. Jack holes up at Sevenoaks drinking.
And the 4 stars, because of the beautiful adaption of the beauty and the beast. I have to say, dogs and horses are great audiences, apart from their tendency annee drool occasionally.
He is a honourable and protective fellow who sees the valour and courage in Kate.
