review The Improper Bride Sisters of Scandal #5

The Improper Bride Sisters of Scandal #5 characters ¶ 7 Cold arrogant and demanding Henry Eldridge Maruess of Riverton would never dally with a mere servant But when Henry is injured in a horrible fire his pretty housekeeper Cassandra nurses him back to health throwing them together day and night As he slowly heals from his burns their friendship blossoms and the class walls between them start to crumble Cassandra is surprised by glimpses of a kind. Warning Wall of text incomingBuddy read with Lyuda45 stars5 star goes to Henry for being such a dubious character The Improper Bride is difficult to review and even difficult to rate The plot is very easy to break down Housekeeper and Lord fall in love but that s about the only thing that is easily explained The rest however has me confused and conflicted and I can see why people would bang this book against the wall I however still absolutely loved itBeing a completely character driven novel Ms Maxton gives her MCs lots of space to develop for which I m grateful Otherwise I would have probably DNF ed it The main conflict between Mrs Cassandra Davis and Henry Eldrige Marues of Riverton is how two people can overcome their class differences This conflict is at the centre of the story right from the start unlike in other books where the hH fall in love and have a whoops we re master and servant but doesn t matter we don t care moment Cassandra and Henry do care and they care a lot especially Henry In the various stages of the book both characters mull over the options they have together as well as by themselves When they reach their HEA we see two people who are fully knowledgeable of the repercussions which makes their HEA believableThe writing is beautiful the scenes between Cassandra and Henry engaging funny in a toned down sort of way and full of chemistry There are so many brilliant moments between them I could uote and go on and on The pushpull between these two is vividly put into words Most importantly though layer by layer their true emotions are revealed and we re slowly getting an idea what makes them tick Three dimensional characters who find themselves in a tricky situation In my review to The Rogue Not Taken I made it clear that the one thing that s most important to me in regards to characterisation is the ability of the author to make me understand their motivations It doesn t matter if I like a character at the start of a story What matters is that I understand the character that I see where shehe is coming from Ms Maxton has done a terrific job giving the reader enough information about her characters to give them a chance But I ll come back to that laterCassandra is a 32 year old level headed caring and loving widow Thankfully she s not been abused by her husband nor does she come from a terrible family She truly loved every aspect of her marriage and she loved her husband A pleasant change from the many tortured heroines I read about these days Once she starts falling for Henry she needs to face the fact that she has put her dead husband on a pedestal and is unwilling to consider the possibility of falling in love again It is an incredibly tender moment when she does acknowledge it and says goodbye to the man she s loved for so long I adored her strength and intelligence her guts to accept that she s a servant but that Henry is not her Master She uestions him pokes him without being either too obvious or too annoying She wants to understand the man she finds and fascinatingHenry Eldrige Henry Henry Henry What am I to do with you A fair warning here to all those who say scoundrels aren t scoundrels This man is truly a bastard Arrogant hard cold heartless That s how he starts off anyway I can already see people being disgusted by him And guess what I loved him But then and I know I m constantly repeating myself give me a morally ambiguous hero with dubious motives make me understand him and I ll happily read along with a wide grin on my face He has a few redeemable traits He s not intimated by Cassandra s intelligence and even admits to himself at one point that she s probably intelligent than him He loves her strength and her resolve He s actually uite insecure with Cassandra The class differences aside once he acknowledges his interest for her he s very careful not to spook her Even when he finally sees that she s just as much sexually attracted to him as he is to her he doesn t pounce on her There s no I want her she wants me I m gonna shag her despite her doubts moment I truly loved that about HenryBut and there s always a but there s a different and uite damning side to him Just to be clear here there s no cheating involved but he s done things in the past that would put him firmly and uite easily in the villain category and as Cassandra so nicely puts it it s despicable I must admit when I read the scene I felt as if I had been punched in the face and oh dear what a tosser Obviously due to his personality his character development is substantial and it s delightful to see him brought to his knees Take that fucker In many ways he reminds me of Alastair de Grey from Fool Me Twice still love the guy which I know will raise red flags with some of my GR friends And to those I say this The author provides us with a solid background to Henry s story He s a child of his time brought up to think of himself first and foremost a lonely almost bitter man and I m ever so grateful to Ms Maxton that she didn t make him wallow in self pity like King in The Rogue Not Taken every time he hurts the heroine However cruel Henry may seem there s always a reason behind it very much like with Alastair de Grey and Felix from The Luckiest Lady in London Oh my I have been throwing links to other books left and right here But seriously Henry is one of the most intriguing male characters I ve come across lately well since Alastair de Grey and kudos to Ms Maxton for creating such an unlikable hero Not easy to pull off but she s done it with verve And now to the uestion Lyuda and I have been wondering after reading what Henry was capable of Has Henry redeemed himself Is he even worth of redemption As unlikable as Henry is his journey is one of change Cassandra forces him to open his eyes and see that his actions have impact on those around him especially the servants Through her he changes through her he comes to appreciate things he has taken for granted through her he sees that as much as he may be bound to Society s rules and judgements against those of lower birth his title and station in life does not make him a better man The despicable thing he s done He does say sorry for it he does regret it Is it enough Good uestion It s where I m struggling I would have loved to see a better resolution to it but that s the author s shortcoming not giving Henry the space to reflect on his past actions and make it better I thoroughly enjoyed this book also because this was a buddy read with Lyuda Again Lyuda again again
