SPOILER: Too many plot holes. Many many things that were clearly plot devices to force the story to go a certain way but didn't really make much sense. As many have said, the villian is pretty apparent from the get go. However, I thought her motives were weak in the extreme. If she loved her Scottish home so much why not just stay there? It certainly wasn't unheard of for a poor relation spinster to live on as a chatelain pro tem while the real mistress is away. Good grief, just let the woman stay there. She would be surrounded by servants and could busy herself with 'good works' and overseeing things while Jonet is not there. Problem solved. No need for homicidal mania to ensue.
And Jonet is so frantic for Cole to stay and protect her and her children, but in the end lets him make the long trip back to London rather than just tell him the truth about Delacourt. I mean come on?? She loves him, supposedly trusts him, is going to marry him, but can't be honest with him?? I'm sure Delecourt would understand the need for her to tell him the truth. Another blatant plot device to get Cole out of the picture.
And as for Jonet...she is too much. Too irrational to the point of being ridiculous. Her rants, trembles & flying off the handle get old. I know Cole is supposed to be her antidote and calm her down but she is just a little bit too much. Brandishing the riding crop was so silly. All because the man wanted to see the boys??? I could see breaking out the riding crop if he was trying to take them away, but really, just trot them on down for a howdy do and be done with it.
And it bugged me that her eye color changed from blue to black throughout the entire novel. She was described as having blue eyes at first, but then we read all about her dark flashing eyes over and over. Which is it? Blue or black?
I'm not such a prude that I found the light bondage scene objectionable. It was pretty tame and not that erotic, but mainly because I just never felt the characters meshed all that well so the love scenes were sort of flat.
Oddly, I liked Cole and Jonet much much better as characters when they appear in Delacourt's story, A Woman of Virtue. Perhaps they read better when happy.
