Lisa Kleypas is so important to me as a fan of historical romance She was the reason I got into the genre in the first place and it was most of her books that became the standard by which I judged others The latter of course changed once I broadened my horizons and got acuainted with the works of Amanda uick Elizabeth Hoyt and Monica McCarty but LK is still definitely a legend in her own right That was why I waited patiently for her comeback to historical romance And we re talking about years here man I was so freaking happy when I heard about Cold Hearted Rake that it was all I could do not to dance around the house with my hands in the air mimicking a lunatic on crackAnd this is the reason why my disappointment over this book cuts so deep I expected so much only to be sorely disappointed No I take that back The appropriate term would be devastated Like in my usual reviews I first make it clear that reviewing a book is a matter of opinions and preferences I m judging this one as with every book I judge according to a set of parameters which may or may not correspond with yours So if you can t tolerate criticisms about this novel feel free to ignore this review I don t want any fanatic commenting shit about my feelings about the storySo anyway I judge according to how well the story was written how the characters were developed and how likeable they are and how the plot was executed Cold Hearted Rake is without a doubt well written I could not find a fault in the prose it was exactly the way I remembered an LK novel should beHowever the story s downfall was caused by its characters especially the hero Devon and the poor execution of the plotFirst let s talk about the characterisation This is actually the main reason for this 1 star rating For one I cannot respect Devon as a man as a character and definitely not as the hero of this story I can t say that I hate him since he never did anything that crossed the line like say bodily harming the heroine or cheating on her but damn dislike is far too bland and tame a word to describe my feelings for this asshole And he was really just that a fucking assholeLook I know that LK s heroes are usually very human there are always big flaws in their personalities that are glaringly obvious to the readers on the get go And what s beautiful about it is seeing these guys come into terms with their humanity to become a better man someone worthy of the heroine s love The best example of that would probably be Derek Craven in Dreaming of You Or Sebastian in The Devil in Winter These guys are on the top of my list of favourite heroes They were crass uncouth and immoral But they changed for the better because of loveAnd that s what s wrong with Devon Like the usual LK hero he s characterised as having a rather unsavoury personality Well for one he s a Ravenel a family that is described as followsThey yielded to every temptation indulged in every sin and scorned every virtue with the result that they tended to die faster than they could reproduceNow there were only two leftSo they re a reckless immoral and bad tempered lot Nothing really new there for an LK fan I just brushed this off having full confidence that LK would somehow someway change Devon into a better manAnd so I read onAnd became increasingly concerned and later on incensed at the manWith effort Devon swallowed back his outrage Deliberately he stretched out his legs with relaxed indolence and glanced at his brother West are we uite certain that Cousin Theo perished in a fall he asked coolly It seems far likely that he froze to death in the marital bed West chuckled not above the enjoyment of a malicious uipTotthill and Fogg for their part kept their gazes downKathleen crossed the threshold and sent the door shuddering with a violent slam Brother West said with mock chiding that was beneath you Nothing s beneath me Devon replied stone faced You know that HOLY MOTHER OF EVERYTHING THAT IS SACRED WILL SOMEONE LEND ME A BAT TO BEAT THIS MOTHERFUCKERYou ll understand my outrage once you know that at this point in the story Kathleen the heroine and Devon had already established some kind of a rapport with each other albeit a shallow one They ve chatted in what seemed to me as a friendly manner and I definitely don t think that Kathleen deserved such an cruel insult Especially since Kathleen and Theo s marriage despite the imperfections was not a marriage of convenience they went through proper courtship and Kathleen liked the man Unfortunately Devon s bad temper and unsavoury personality is consistent in the story After Devon and Kathleen s spat Helen the sister of Kathleen s dead husband tried to appeal to him to send for her Our heroine went to a villager who was suffering from a fever and was expected to be caught up in the impending storm And you know how Devon reacted There was nothing in the world that Devon would love than the sight of Kathleen rain soaked and bedraggled He had to restrain himself from rubbing his hands together in villainous glee There s no need to send a footman he said casually I m certain that Lady Trenear will have the sense to stay at the tenant farm until the rain passes Yes but the downs will have turned to mud Better and better Kathleen wading through mud and clay Devon fought to keep his expression grave when inside all was joy and exploding Roman candles He went to the window No rain yet but dark clouds seeped through the sky like ink on wet parchment We ll wait a bit longer She could return momentarily WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST READSERIOUSLY WHAT GROWN SELF RESPECTING MAN WOULD ACTUALLY THINK LIKE THAT ONLY A CRUEL ASSHOLE WOULD I LL TELL YOU AND THIS IS CONSIDERING HAVING A FEVER BACK THEN COULD KILL YOUAnd this just keeps on going on and on really this bad tempered streak of his This fucker lashes at people every time he got mad I became so fucking disgusted at him that I detached myself from the story I just finished the novel because I hoped I really hoped that he would redeem himselfBut he did not In the end he just realised his feelings gave a pledge of eternal love and that s it No soul bearing life changing redemption in his part I demand pining for fuck s sake especially after everything Kathleen went through One bucket of tears for every tongue lashing he gave wouldn t even begin to satisfy me I demand so much especially after seeing awesome LK heroes like Derek and Sebastian toil for their redemption The worst part of this is that I can t see Devon changing his spots I can t imagine him becoming less of an asshole everytime he was angry And what kind of a relationship with such a man would be I m sure as hell it wouldn t be a healthy one SighKathleen herself is far too inconsistent and indecisive to be likeable I thought she was a strong character at first especially with the way she stood up to Devon in the first chapter but as the story progress she becomes and obedient pliant and a downright push over At one point I was sorely tempted to call her an invertebrate because of her lack of willpower My God She frustrated the hell out of me Instead of apologising to Devon like she did I would have kicked him in the balls and left him for goodAnd all this brings me to my second point the romance is far from convincing In fact I ve never seen two people ill suited for each other than Devon and Kathleen I think another factor that made their love unconvincing is the fact that there was no proper build up to their relationship Every single thing in the story seems orchestrated in order to make things convenient for Devon Some events don t really make any sense For instance when the two first met Devon said something about throwing Kathleen and his cousins from the house a remark which our heroine overheard They had a huge fight Okay so they were arguing and because of the widow s veil he couldn t see her face When he lifts it up BAM He was transfixed by her original beauty and then they stopped arguing Kathleen was the first to speak and shocked the fuck out of me when she actually obeyed him and answered his uestion And then they had a friendly chat And Devon started lusting after her And Kathleen agreed to tour him around his estateIn the first chapterWay too early It s fucking way too early for a friendly chat between those two Hello The man just told you he wanted you ass off the property and HE DIDN T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOUR AND HIS COUSINS WELFARE and THIS IS HOW YOU ACT KATHLEEN DEAR GOD I would have bloodied his nose for his remark BlechOverall this book s just a big let down I love LK but no amount of loyalty could make me stomach Devon Kathleen while annoying with her inconsistent and flimsy character is tolerable
