Retro Review – A Rose in Winter by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss

Lord Talbot Creepy man. I wasn’t sure if I should post this here or in my personal journal, and decided since this is for writing, and books help me think about writing, it ought to go here! I wish that Judith McNaught’s publishers would put her books on Kindle. On A Wild Winter’s Night. Want to Read saving…. He was always polite, he was always gentle, and was by far the most civilized man in the story universe Woodiwiss created.

But I just woodiwids not stomach the overwrought, purple prose of this book. I don’t know how someone could be so little self-aware when she was in silk nightgowns.

Like, he got thrown off his horse at a great height kathleen hit a tree and it tore off his breeches. I’d always thought that this was a gorgeous cover and it reminded me of a Michelangelo painting.

You’ve successfully reported this review. Why would I want to waste my time on a heroine so stupid? Apr 19, Allarice rated it it was ok.

He halted before them and bowed stiffly. When the heroine does nothing but rail about the perfection of the hero based on his looks, and the hero has no hobbies other than perhaps view spoiler [inexplicably dressing up like the Phantom of the Opera minus the panache factor hide spoiler ]no weaknesses, no quirks, NOTHING throughout the entire freaking novel, well View all 6 comments.

I loved Lord Saxton to bits! And as long as I’m complaining, I’ve got to say that if this is a typical example of the genre “bodice rippers”, I’m not sure if I’m ready for a while to read another book that uses the word “bosom” so often.


Ayyyyyyyy pero que historia mas boniiiiita!!! It created a very questionable air, as the man she had married was already enigmatic and elusive, and clearly after a serious dealing of justice.

Woodiwiss not doubt has the gift of writing, I just need to find the right story. Yet even as she fell wiodiwiss love with her adoring husband, Erienne despaired of freeing her heart from the dashingly handsome Yankee who couldn’t forget her.

Somebody sound the sociopath alert. The Designs of Lord Randolph Cavanaugh. Despite everything going on around him and having to deal with a whole shitstorm of issues as a returning lord who’s suspected of murder, he really wanted a woman to “save him from his solitude” you might say, and Erienne was beginning to realize that she might be okay with that. Sometimes the two are met as one. As his small boat scudded before a brisk breeze under a sapphire sky dappled with cerulean clouds with indigo bases, through cobalt seas that deepened to navy nearer the boat and faded to azure at wooiwiss horizon, Ian was at a loss as to why he felt blue.

Wolf and the Dove. In all, he presented a most fearsome mien for a young bride seeing her future husband for the first time.

A gentle and adoring soul, he treats his new bride with warmth and abiding tenderness, yet appears to her only by daylight. Erienne is sold to the mysterious Lord Saxton, a sinister figure who wears a f mask to cover the hideous scars left by a fire that burned down his family mansion.

And even if it was absolutely necessary for him to marry her under the guise rosw “Lord Saxton,” why not send a proxy which was common practice those days rather than going to all the trouble of that stupid scheme aka dressing up as Darth Vader? Learn how your comment data is processed.

Decir que me encanto es quedarme corta. Buy from our partners. Here is an example. At any rate, since she is such a popular writer, I’m not going to base future reading decisions on this one book. I wanted to review a book I bought in late December and read for the following few weeks.


Whenever a Christopher scene was being set up, I’d just sigh, really hoping katlheen go by quickly. I guess Woodiwiss liked the idea of her heroine getting that type of attention, but for me it got old, and I thought, if anyone, a woman writing this book would put things like boobs aside since she has a pair herself and sees them everyday and they’re nothing much.

A Rose in Winter by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss

He doesn’t mourn because he’s a cripple. She bears a resemblance to Catherine from Taming of the Shrew at the start, but very quickly it becomes obvious with the cards she’s been dealt in life that it really isn’t surprising.

The boot of his right leg bore a thick, heavy, wedge-shaped sole, as if for the purpose of straightening a clubbed or twisted foot. When she meets dashing American merchant Christopher Seton, she cannot deny her attraction to him, despite the fact that he wounded her brother, Farrell, in a duel, crippling him for life.

It’s really that bad. Except for the white shirt, he was dressed entirely in black. Also, Erienne, our heroine, seems a bit doodiwiss. But when description is used without the slightest thought for occasion, thesauruses become the new human brain, the act wlnter making pancakes is sensationalized to a life and death experience, metaphors are utterly abused, and each tree in a forest is given an individual sentence of description – whether likening it to dark and gloomy skeletons or imposing statues – I draw the line.

She probably would have been much more annoying if woosiwiss story were written in modern times, but because it was a period story, she was more bearable. Christopher SetonErienne Fleming.

As you said, it is no fun when you can guess the Big Reveal within the first few pages. I actually do not believe I have met a whinier, more vapid, uninteresting heroine. Pero desde que entra en escena Lord Saxton es un no parar.
