I do need to comment on some of the bad reviews. AGAIN, SPOILERS. It is clear that well done historical romances may not be for some of you. This book was written decades ago. JM dis not shy away from the realities of the day that are often whitewashed in romances now. Men kept mistresses because marriages between wealthy people were often loveless business arrangements for the financial and political betterment of the entire family, not just the two being married. Entire families were bankrolled for a lifetime by one good marriage. (Which, if you have read it, explains Pride and Prejudice.) Because marriages were transactions amongst the aristocracy and because they weren't legal until consummated, sex was also a transaction. Imagine being 18 and married off to a 40 or 50 year old of the day and then being expected to produce children. Imagine being a man rejected by his wife after an heir is produced. The families of women sought protection for them in the form of wealthy husbands because they could not be property owners or start careers. Men needed heirs. Marriages were a cattle call on both sides.
In this book, sexually uninformed Victoria unwittingly leads an older Jason to believe that she is not a virgin (the unforgivable for young women of the day), and that he should keep a mistress like everyone else. She drinks too much on their wedding day because she is scared, but if she isn't a virgin and prior kisses have been passionate, what is Jason to think after his own experiences with his last wife but that Victoria has faked everything to get her hands on his money? That she sold herself? Why, then, should Jason be blamed for treating the marriage like the transaction she seems to want by assuming she had already had sex and then keeping his mistress? If you view the events of the wedding night and immediately after in these contexts, you begin to see how socials mores of the time taint things. Jason is not intentionally cruel. Bitter and disappointed, but not cruel. His actions are in line with most ither marriages of the time.
Some are looking at the book through the filter of modern romance or fluffier historical romances where this is little to no mention of outside sexual experiences. If you are doing so, you are bound to be disappointed. Men and women at the time did things that we don't understand now. I am sure we would be just as baffling.
When Victoria finally finds her voice and tells her husband what she really wants, it is a thing of real beauty. Jason's response is so poignant, that you finally get to see the man underneath the thick emotional armor. The way they love each other openly in front of society is enviable and satisfying.
Victoria and Jason are two of the better leading characters I've read about over the years. Uncle Charles is an interesting secondary character as is Captain Farrell. Both of them help move the story along in a way that doesn't take away from the main narrative. The only thing that really didn't need to be there was the conflict of having Andrew, Victoria's first beau, show up at the end. That was a bit of overkill in my opinion. He had already been established as a jerk, we didn't need to be reminded of it.
I won't spoil the specifics of the plot, but it has the boy meets girl/boy marries girl/boy really screws up and girl leaves him/girl realizes she loves him & goes back to him.
If you want to read about Victoria and Jason's rocky road to their happily ever after, buy the book.
