READ Whirlwind Affair
Robert is probably one of my
FAVORITE ROMANCE YOU HAVE TO romance You have to a man with a good sense of humor It was kind of slow paced in a way that I m always waiting for that beautiful something present in book 1 to happen but well it s only manifested in last 30% of the story I think that part helps a lot for me to give it 4 stars Wonderful hero Robert annoying heroine A Regency mystery love story with an American woman with a nickname Allie The contemporary name
bothered me as did the villian and his lackey I will probably try me as did the villian and his lackey I will probably try find the 1st book Whirlwind wedding that features Robert s brother and Allie s friend Elizabeth who is psychic just to find thepre story I don t particularly recommend the book Very romantic loving English Lord Heroine is American and hurt so badly by first husband now deceased she vows to never trust any man again There were times I wanted to shake her because she was about to lose the most perfect man as husbandStory has a lot of suspense throughout There is a hidden villain This is the first book from this author I didn t totally love I loved Robert the hero from the time he was introduced in Whirlwind Wedding But the heroine s actions in this book did not make sense to me from the very beginning I could not understand her reluctance to see Robert as the honorable man he clearly was from the start and how she kept making comparisons between Robert and her ex husband almost constantly And this problem did not clear up until the last several pages of the book Poor Robert He deserved better Regency romance with sex This is the 2nd in the series Alberta comes from America to see her former friend Elisabeth meet her husband child During the voyage several accidents befall her She s met at the dock in England by Robert the oungest brother of Elisabeth s husband the Duke Robert is a happy go lucky kind of guy He has a good sense of humor he s actually WANTING to settle down get married He just has to find the right girl to love He thinks he s found her in Allie I liked this story better than the 1st one to tell ou the truth I really liked Robert Allie was only OK but she had some issues to get through There was excitement in this one IMO Typical romance novel from 2002 American Alberta Brown and Englishman Robert Jamison are immediately drawn to each other upon meeting when Robert is tasked with escorting Allie from the ship she arrived on to the home of her best friend whose husband is Robert s brother But there is a lot standing between them tragedies in both their pasts her vow never to marry again not to mention a killer who has trailed Allie and the mysterious ring she posses all the way from Ame.

S looking to find the love of his life and settle down He s funny sweet romantic possessive just delicious I liked Allie but I found her to be excessively weighed down by the past I understand that she would be affected by her previous husband s bad character but the story takes place three ears later four times longer than she was married to him and her marraige still casts such a long shadowThe supporting cast was good and I m hoping that Jacuie D Alessandro decides to write a romance for Michael Evers as I would love to read it The mystery subplot was obvious and certain twists were done for effect than realistic practicality why would the note be taken all the way to Ireland when there are people in England who can translate Gaelic but it was still entertaining and added a touch of dangerCRITICISMSThis is hard for me to describe but there was something missing between Allie and Robert We hear about how highly they think of one another how attractive they find one another etc but for some reason I found there to be a lack of chemistry I ve read this before in other reviews and I never understood what they could possibly mean it s a book words on a page what do ou mean there was a lack of chemistry but now I knowThe constant abbreviations hyphenations nicknames were annoying Also we don t find out that Allie was married to David for only 8 months until a good ways

Rica This book wasn t perfect but it was still a really good read In its favor were humor a wonderful hero hot love scenes and an exciting mystery But the mystery while good enough fell short of breathtaking especially considering a coincidence it involved that was so unbelievable it was just silly The side mystery Robert s past was resolved far too patly Sometimes a tidy ending is satisfying but when it s too neatly done up and presented to the reader with a bow it s UNsatisfying And although was fun and wit to be found I was disappointed we didn t get to see MORE of Allie and Robert s playfulness When they did let loose they were so much fun While I understand why their courtship was so serious the book would have been satisfying and engaging if D Alessandro has let them have their fun together often Also Allie s stubborn refusal to see that Robert was not like her deceased husband just got to be too much I really wanted to throttle her at times Overall while I m disappointed with the ways D Alessandro dropped the ball here and there Whirlwind Affair was largely a fun hot engaging story DNF at about 50% Firstly it was rather boring Secondly I got tired of hearing how she had loved her husband and what a great love life I got tired of hearing how she had loved her husband and what a great love life hadview spoilerShe reminisces about how he taught her about lovemaking and how he always made sure she was satisfied hide spoiler Like the previous book in this series Whirlwind Wedding this book had 4 star potential It had a great story with a very interesting mystery Robert the hero was terrific He actually is looking to get married and earns for family life He is sweet honorable and funny Any woman with sense would have grabbed him up in a
minute My problem with the book was Allie the heroine who is a widow Unfortunately itMy problem with the book was Allie the heroine who is a widow Unfortunately it another one of those my husband was a lying cheating thief and all men are like him and I ll never trust another man again themes She made a 4 star story into a 35 star book or a BDespite all the evidence that Robert is nothing like her deceased husband Allie insists on thinking the worst of him and keeps pushing him away She does so for far too long before she realizes what a gem he is If she hadn t been uite so hard on him and had seen his true ualities sooner I would have given this otherwise excellent book a 4 star rating Could have been amazing but for a few flaws Robert hero was charming 35 stars Whirlwind Affair is the seuel to Whirlwind Wedding but it can be read on its own Although I found it hard at first to get a read on Robert it was uickly clear that he was a sweetheart and a wonderful leading man He s not one of those cynical anti love heroes but rather E wrongs of her thieving husband Allie decides to return the items to their rightful owners After a series of attempts on her life Allie.
