  • Angst and brilliant!

    THE LORD'S INCONVENIENT VOW is book 3 in The Sinful Sinclairs series, it stands perfectly on its own, but not that much is mentioned about the scandalous family, so if you haven't read the previous books, rest assured that the Sinclairs are infamous. Lady Samantha Sinclair and Lord Edward Edgerton - or Edge, as Sam playfully calls him - had been frenemies since they were children. But meeting again in Egypt when Sam was eighteen would change their lives, and not for the better. Eight years had gone by before they saw each other again, and this time Sam will not let her chance pass her by, and she asks Edge to marry him. She has always loved him, but would she regret her impetuous move? From the first page, Lara Temple transports the reader to early nineteenth century Egypt through her exquisitely vivid descriptions. The author's research is astounding - I felt like I was discovering Egypt along with Regency London. Ms. Temple's prose is so lyrical and vibrant that I felt the heat, the dust, I experienced the sounds and smells, the sultry atmosphere; it's magical! The dialogues are also terrific, especially the teasing banter between Sam and Edge at the beginning. Both Sam and Edge are exceedingly complex characters: she's a force of nature, fearless, and passionate. He's reserved, somewhat cynical, and extremely hard to read; he's as enigmatic as the Sphinx. While they had been friends, they didn't really know each other that well, and this is why Sam's spontaneity backfires, for a time. I'll admit I didn't quite understand why Sam asked Edge to marry him, what made her think he would accept. Neither had anything to gain from it, but he surprisingly did. I adored Sam, Edge not so much. Not that I disliked him - he's a good man, but weak, and often oblivious to the world around him except for the task at hand, in this case his brother Rafe, whom I loved - but I thought he was entirely wrong for Sam, and I felt if this were real life, theirs might not have been a fulfilling marriage. The reason my rating isn't higher is due to a classic case of "it's not you, it's me". I don't do angst well. I have enough stress in my own life, I don't need any more, and Sam's and Edge's marriage is filled with tension. It is a very realistic depiction of a marriage that is mostly based on lust and watching Sam fight for her exasperating man left me drained, completely exhausted. But it is a personal preference, and readers who thrive on conflict will be in seventh heaven, because THE LORD'S INCONVENIENT VOW is a literary masterpiece and a brilliant character study.

    Thanks for your feedback!
