No, thank you.
After the gang rape I kind of fast forward through reading this :/
It did start off kind of interestingly wild, childhood love, kidnapping, and drama lama but as it approached the half way point it started to drag and the last half just wasn't interesting. Our supposed hero Anthony doesn't really make an appearance, except to kidnap and then rape the heroine, he mostly hangs around waiting for the heroine to agree to marry him. Our heroine Cassie is 18-20yrs old in the story and is written fairly well, it's just that the only material she has is to react to men wanting to rape her and/or marry her. There wasn't even any wild fun shipwrecks or the heroine picking up a sword, although she does shoot hero at one point; it was lacking the wild kookiness dramatic flare that brings me back to these old bodice rippers.
This is best lost to the annuals of time. ( )

Cassie and Anthony. The Devil books are probably the most well loved CC stories. While the setting is sort of unique, nothing else really is. Be prepared, it's typical 80s bodice ripper. ( )

This is not the first book I couldn't finish. However, it holds the honor of being the only one I couldn't finish because reading it made me feel physically ill. ( )

Book description

For beautiful young Cassandra Brougham, the seething city of Genoa, Italy, seemed a world away from the great 18th-century English estate where she was raised --- and the closest she had ever come to purgatory.

Cassie was no longer an innocent when she arrived there with Lord Anthony Welles, the brutally handsome aristocrat who had seduced and stolen her from her intended, Edward Lyndhurst. Still, she was not prepared for what awaited her in this foreign place where she was being held captive by a lover who swore he would conquer her heart as he had conquered her body.

Thus Cassie's trial by the fire of passion began --- as the man she detested made her a slave of desire...as an unknown enemy wreaked revenge upon her ... and as she desperately plotted a way to cross the seas to a man she no longer could be sure she loved ...
