Snow Angel Free download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free review ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ø Mary Balogh Summary Snow Angel A sudden snowstorm strands Rosamund Hunter and Justin Halliday Earl of Wetherby at a hunting lodge in the country Despite their initial embarrassment over the fact that they are strangers they soon relax and enjoy a magical three days of friendship fun and passion They part. 35 stars This is a 1991 Balogh Regency romance which is new to me A lot of her older Signet Regencies from 1985 1998 which she has been releasing in e format in the past year or two are new to me since I only started reading Balogh with her recent SLIGHTLY series and by that time the older Signet paperbacks were hard to come by or very priceyI can t uite decide how I feel about this Snow Angel It starts out a 4 almost 5 star very romantic Regency for me Heroine Rosamund Hunter young widow is stranded in a snowstorm after an argument with her older brother George causes her to leave their carriage in a huff She s rescued by hero Justin Halliday Earl of Wetherby who is on his way to relax at a friend s hunting box unfortunately sans his mistress who at the last minute could not accompany himWetherby takes Rosamund to the hunting box with him because there is no other recourse Once there they fully intend to observe the proprieties but you know sometimes things happen They enjoy each other s snowed in company conversing easily and frankly playing cards and billiards reading companionably walking and frolicking in the snow hence the Snow Angel title of the book and eventually they give in to their strong sexual attraction After all although she had loved her late husband very much he was 30 years her senior and she s curious about what sex with a younger man would be like And as for him well he s a man I guess enough said A man without the company of his mistress and in the company of a lovely young widowEventually the weather lets up and they each go their separate ways not knowing many details about each other not even full names and titles All she really knows is that he is soon to become betrothed and that his planned trip with the mistress was to have been his last hurrah He knows that her marriage had been very happy and that her brother now wants to marry her off again to someone she s not interested in That s pretty much it as far as personal detailsOnce back with her brother she is fortunately able to give a plausible excuse to him about where she spent her snow in that he accepts and life goes on as usual Except that brother George Lord March has a daughter named Annabelle who is soon to be betrothed to a young peer Rosa travels to George s home for the house party where this happy event is to be announced And yes folks that young peer is Rosa s snow time lover You can imagine the awkwardness of their first and actually all their subseuent meetings at this house partyUp to this point about 40% the book is a 4 5 star one for me but from then on it s bogged down in annoying behavior indecisive inaction and honorable intentions Hero Wetherby feels obligated to offer for Annabelle Annabelle is a wishy washy young woman lacking any personality who just goes along with whatever is decided for her And there s Josh Lord Beresford second cousin of Rosamund and friend of Wetherby who may or may not be attracted to Rosa or maybe to someone elseOh sweet heaven above How tiring this part became The hero had not yet declared himself nor had Annabelle shown any indications of favoring him So would it have been so very dishonorable to just skip the whole proposaldeclaration I guess you had to be a member of the peerage in the 1800s to understand and accept the actions of these characters in the last 60% of the book I personally wanted Justin to feel so intensely enad of Rosamund that he would grab her and run off into the sunset with her Alas and alack he just accidentally lucks into his HEA An HEA that Rosa deserved and I certainly hope she will find it with himThe attraction and budding love at the beginning is very well written and I also appreciated a scene at the end in which Rosa acknowledges to herself a sexual attraction to Josh even while being in love with Justin Most romances ignore the fact that even though you may have found your One True Love the body can still be attracted to a Not the One Perhaps I should have rounded my 35 stars to 4 because of insights like these but that final 60% tried my patience sorely Beverly Hills 90210 'Tis the Season year or two are new to me

Snow Angel Free download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free review ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ø Mary Balogh Summary Snow Angel Reluctantly expecting never to meet again She is on her way after a year of mourning for her late husband to rejoin her family for the celebration of the long awaited betrothal of her niece He is on his way to honor a match arranged long ago by his mother and Rosamund's and. I had read Snow Angel previously in paperback so there were no surprises this time round I have read all of the current re releases by Balogh and a previous reading has mattered little or not at all in those cases With Snow Angel it mattered a lotFor one thing the snowman and snow angel scenes and reminiscences seemed much mawkishFurther the house party machinationsdeliberations assignations were far tedious than first time aroundThere were some positives For example I agree with OLT s review when she mentions Rosa s temptation to jump into bed with Josh Unusual in an HR for just the reasons OLT mentions and a positive for those same reasons I was also impressed by Rosa s honesty re how she hurt the pompous suitorAnd I saw positives than OLT in the depiction of Annabelle I think that Balogh did a good job of showing how a dutiful and loving daughter and granddaughter could close down emotionally in light of her proposed fate and her lengthy hopeless infatuation for someone else but come alive and be courageous when it mattered I also liked her sense of honour as evidenced by the slap to Josh s face She may have only been 18 but she had integrity and loyalty and a dangerous lack of self interest to a degree that was suffocating her with sadness That made her interesting to me As did the scene where she turns to her aunt for advice which Balogh depicted very cleverlyI was conflicted about the h Rosamund or Rosa One thing I liked about Snow Angel was the developing understanding of her brother and her final realisation of the depth of his love for her I liked her awareness of why she sought out her first husband from fear but also to find a father replacement Good old Leonard was a sweetie as well but why did he have to be a no hoper in bed Too too unnecessary Ms BaloghIn the end however the main problem for me was that I just didn t warm to Justin and Rosa as a couple I didn t like him one bit And that was before Josh saw them together a scene that put me off Rosa as well irrespective of the nauseating self reproaches afterwards Everything before that was fine with me but to go off together with that in mind and to do that to your niece and even your fianc was a no go for me And in the open where they could be seen by any passerby fellow guests family members and even servants Of course Balogh did it deliberately but it irritated the heck out of meAnd Justin In the end the review by arc sums him up for me I didn t like him never warmed to him and consider him to have been an unmitigated coward I totally agree that it was Josh who behaved like a proper HR hero by facing down what he knew would be an uproar to get the HEA he and Annabelle deserved And I m fully aware that Balogh understood what she was doing upsetting the usual HR conventions this way Her prerogative of course And mine to dislike it
