ok so this book said the man, lord john had seen the horrors of war and was injured in body and soul. ok so when he had the flashback about the war i was not expecting child rape. and i was not expecting the graphic details of said rape to be repeated in the book 2 more times after that in nightmares. THAT MADE ME MAD. i was even more mad since quinn penned a note in the book talking about it and her process of writing it since it is one of her earliest works. i was mad she didn't put a waring in her note. also i fail to see how a MAN who witnesses a child rape would so blame himself for not preventing said rape that he fears he will become a rapist or something. there are plenty of horrors about war. ones that could have affected him more directly than this and scarred his soul more so. i am mad she chose rape. i mad she chose to write about it in detail. i am mad it was a child. and i am mad it was repeated. so many other horrors of war and why in a romance novel would you choose rape?

other than that it was a typical Quinn funny romance. you can definitely tell it is one of her earlier works though. ( )

i was even more mad since Quinn penned a note in the book talking about it and her process of writing it since it is one of her earliest works. i was mad she didn't put a warning in her note. also i fail to see how a MAN who witnesses a child rape would so blame himself for not preventing said rape that he fears he will become a rapist or something like that. there are plenty of horrors about war. ones that could have affected him more directly than this and scarred his soul more so. i am mad she chose rape. i mad she chose to write about it in detail. i am mad it was a child. and i am mad it was repeated. so many other horrors of war that give soldiers PTSD. why in a romance novel would you choose rape?

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380780755, Mass Market Paperback)

Lady Arabella Blydon has beauty and a brain, and she's tired of men who can see only one without the other.

When a suitor tells Arabella he's willing to overlook her appalling bluestocking tendencies on account of her looks and fortune, she decides to take a break from the Marriage Mart. During an extended stay in the country, she never expects to meet Lord John Blackwood, a wounded war hero who intrigues her like no other man.

Lord John has lived through the worst horros of war...but nothing could have been as terrifying to his tormented heart as Lady Arabella. She is intoxicating, infuriating...and she makes him want to live again. Suddenly he's writing bad poetry and climbing trees in the pitch-dark night...just so he can dance with her as the clock strikes midnight. And even though he knows he can never be the sort of man she deserves, he can't help wanting her. But when the harsh light of day replaces the magic of midnight, can this tormented soul learn to love again?
