READ KINDLE µ Jasmine Moon Ü Posing as a servant seemed a harmless deception, and the pretense gave Lili a chance to really know the man she d married But Lili had not reckoned on becoming her own husband s mistress And before she could reveal her identity, Robert Tabor s honor forced him to deny their love Suddenly she was torn from her home, and sold as a slave thrust into a rugged, violent world, a hard struggling life that would take her from the Carolina plantation to the wilds of Canada An extraordinary story of a romance and a passion that would not die I read this book before I was a teenager and it made such an impression I am not sure what type on me that I ve not been able to forget it in over 20 yrs I plan to read it again so that I can see if it was a good as I found it then. You have to have a high tolerance for old school bodice rippers, especially those taking place in the antebellum south To be honest, had I read this as a teen I d have probably eaten it up with a spoon, but obviously tastes change.This had some potential to be a good old fashioned BR, but the potential for really deep angst was overloaded by well too much angst As soon as one crisis was over, another began, leaving no time for a resolution of any depth Good gravy As Jacqueline said in You have to have a high tolerance for old school bodice rippers, especially those taking place in the antebellum south To be honest, had I read this as a teen I d have probably eaten it up with a spoon, but obviously tastes change.This had some potential to be a good old fashioned BR, but the potential for really deep angst was overloaded by well too much angst As soon as one crisis was over, another began, leaving no time for a resolution of any depth Good gravy As Jacqueline said in her reviewThere s floods, amnesia, babies, jealousy, angst, repentance, nunneries, voodoo there might even be elephantsThere were no elephants, but definitely a wild boar, alligators, and deadly snakes Oh and let s not forget the British The British were always coming.This was VERY old school and unapologetically so Warning slavery is present and the hero is a slave owner.Also the hero s attitude was definitely not that of a modern man when it comes to women He loved the heroine, but was very much of the mind that she was his and he had all rights to dictate her life A very paternal attitude that might make you want to scream at times.I was very angered by the hero s jealousy against the trapper who had bought his wife when she was sold into slavery by himself The trapper was too drunk to perform the first night and then the heroine somehow managed to convince him she was a nun and got him to leave her at a nunnery So, improbably, the heroine never had sex with the trapper I say improbably, because he sure as heck didn t buy her to do his laundry.The grossness of the H s attitude, no matter how historically fitting, was just blech Even if the trapper had had sex with the heroine, it would have been rape She wouldn t have been his mistress as the hero kept referring to the relationship she would have been a sex slave Big difference there bucko Then again, that would probably have been the mindset of many men of the time.Also, the hero, while determined to do right by the heroine and find her and restore her to her rightful position as lady of the manor had also planned to never sleep with her again since she was ruined The only thing that made me able to deal, was that he eventually decided he d get past it since he wanted her so much Still, he was jealous of this potential RAPIST for vast majority of the book.The reason why he was jealous aside from outdated ideas about sex was the absurd lack of communication going on Yeah, yeah, I realize misunderstanding moves the plot along, but give me a break It was one misplaced assumption after another and no one ever just came out and said what was on their mind This was one of my first historical romances It s definitely a wild old bodice ripper Lili is married by proxy to Robert and pretends to be a light skinned slave when he comes to the plantation as she is scared of this unknown man He takes her as a mistress oh why don t these romance heroine s just tell the truth then decides he has become too fond of her and sells her to a fur trader That s when he learns who she really is and off he goes to rescue her and get her back There s floods, a This was one of my first historical romances It s definitely a wild old bodice ripper Lili is married by proxy to Robert and pretends to be a light skinned slave when he comes to the plantation as she is scared of this unknown man He takes her as a mistress oh why don t these romance heroine s just tell the truth then decides he has become too fond of her and sells her to a fur trader That s when he learns who she really is and off he goes to rescue her and get her back There s floods, amnesia, babies, jealousy, angst, repentance, nunneries, voodoo there might even be elephants Hard to remember There s so much going on here.I sold this book once in my I m too good for romances stage But I never forgot it and eventually had to replace my copy If you missed the bodice ripper phase the first time around, oh you poor things and you re looking to give them a try, start here You won t regret it Had to give up on this one Too much tell and no show Sex scene was behind closed doors And it was just plain boring I made it to page 112 before deciding to quit.
