They can be about new hobbies and cultural concepts, too. There was a very clear and valid reason why Armand didn't speak, which made the story believable. The romance between Felicity and Armand was magical. It was not heavy on the historical details but touched on general events of the time. Jane Cheung 3:21pm October 20, 2010 I am a mystery lover but enjoy reading historical fiction as well. She has been hired to teach him how to speak.
Get this book and sigh with us all. Galen is a strong writer replete with a lively wit, vivid descriptions, strong characters, likeable and not, filled with conflicts, emotional upheaval, a hint of mystery and a dose of romance. Felicity, needs this job desperately. Armand has been in prison for about half his life and his just recently been re Note: This review, and all my reviews, comes from my blog - Romantic Rose's Bookshelf Book 2 in the Sons of the Revolution Series How unfortunate. This sets a very interesting challenge for Felicity, his tutor. There really is no reason given why he is forcing her into marriage, as well as the need for specific amount of money that he feels only she can get. So she accepts a tutoring position for the impressive Duc and Duchesse de Valere.
After the abuse Armand has endured, even a kind touch pains him--but not Felicity's. Harus nya ini kan moment2 romantis, atau moment2 bikin ngakak. And I know some are going to disagree with me on this, but just bare with me for a second. The memory of practicing piano and recitals comes back to me, too, along with the butterflies and sweat from worry about hitting the wrong or a new note.

It makes learning fun - Jl Welling 8:42am October 20, 2010 I enjoy romance and genre, however I too like regency. The development of the characters and the romance was perfect. And, of course, this book sets up the next in the series and I can't wait to dig in. I loved the relationship between Armand and Felicity. But the viscount has the bad manners not to arrive when he is supposed to, and Angelette is somewhat put out when he finally makes his appearance — two days late — when she is about to dine.
Shana Galen once again brings her characters to life through the expertise of her writing. The illogical, unrealistic nature of it all bothered me. And why does he trust her right away when he distrusts everyone else and hates to leave his back unprotected? A delightful, witty, emotional story of true love, trust and healing. There's also some sort of ridiculous spy plot or something about treasure. It was such a delight to see these two fall in love, it was very heart wrenching at times. She's happily married and has a daughter who is most definitely a romance heroine in the making. I have two main complaints.
Some of the scenes were also a little confusing. Above all, Armand was a fabulous hero learning how to be human again and he made this a wonderful read. Some of the scenes were also a little confusing. Armand was so fierce, but since he had been through so much pain, he was very vulnerable.

The story is this: Armand was a French aristocrat captured during the French Revolution, when he was 11. Though safely back on English soil, Armand remains locked in a prison of his mind, unable to interact with the glittering social world that was his rightful place. The characters were less creative and the timeframe in which the book was supposed to take place was highly inaccurate.
Felicity Bennett is engaged to marry a gambling swindler against her will, her only way out is to pay him. He did'nt like or care about the rules of society, but tried his best to abide by them. He was a bit wild and tormented. Galen's is writing style is smooth and descriptive. They usually have one or two redeeming features, but the rest of the book is a flop. Spine creases, wear to binding and pages from reading. I will have to go back and read The Making of a Duchess since snippets of Julien and Sarah in this book have made me curious of their love story.
He will not speak to anyone, and has not spoken in years. A bit odd and child like. Galen provides Armand with a raft of issues - he can't speak, has apparently forgotten most language skills, and feels pain when someone touches him - which largely exist just to evaporate as soon as he gets his hands on the heroine. Kisah nya berputar2 antara itu aja, ke blo'on-an Armand, sampe menemukan cinta sejati nya pada Felicity,akhirnya. Armand has been in prison for about half his life and his just recently been rescued by his brother, Julien, the duc. B books are better than average.
