(A Heartless Design) PDF/EBOOK Ì Elizabeth Cole

Buried eTill interesting and layered There are twoxtremes of historical romance writers the ones that sound so historically accurate that you feel like you re in the time period no that sounds like a good thing but what I m talking is about is a story that it sounds and reads so historically it puts you to sleep and takes you forever to finish reading the book if you ven ver nd up finishing the book and the ones that sound like some obtuse person from the present who has never went to a history class of any kind fell into the past and started narrating the story you are reading Elizabeth Cole unfortunately falls the latter xtreme although writing isn t as severely horrendous Cole s writing sounds like some from the present who knows a lot about London society and culture fell into the past and started narrating the story to someone also from the present who didn t have any idea what on arth the person was talking about and needed xplanations and definitions for very historical thing in the story Now this isn t typically a bad thing for first time historical readers it s actually very useful but is very annoying to the readers who ve already gotten an idea of what the time period the book was set in was like Another thing Cole did that a lot of writers do specially in romance novels is to do the first chapter in the guy or girl s point of view and then do the second chapter in the other one s This is okay but what I didn t like it was that by chapter three there was already too many different plots going on Cordelia s servants secret pasts Cordelia s passion for making ships Sebastian s mission as a spy Sebastian s need to tell veryone he s poor so he doesn t get pinned to a gel a young genteel girl if you didn t already know by the way this is what I m talking about but Cole does it much better and subtly than meI don t know I didn t like this story as much as I thought I would This isn t the best spy novel I ve ver read that honor goes to another I give Heartless a solid three stars I really njoyed this book Great hero and heroine story line and plot Great chemistry and some good sex scenes The story line itself was a bit different in a very good way There was plenty of dialogue tooI listened to this book as I read along via audible and the narrator did a really good job as well I have fallen in love with this series and this author Elizabeth Cole This is an outstanding spy series that is so well written with characters that are deeply xplored I recently read book number 3 in the series as an ARC from Netgalley and LOVED it so of course I researched the author to read in the series If you can believe it this book is FREE right now on com Hurry and get it and add it to your to be read list But don t wait that long as you will kick yourself once you realize how great this book isI adore when a book has characters will kick yourself once you realize how great this book isI adore when a book has characters you get motionally "Involved With I Cared About Cordelia And Sebastien I Was "with I cared about Cordelia and Sebastien I was to find out what happens to them I read so fast because I couldn t wait to find out how the story unfolds Cordelia is an ngineer as well as a woman of the ton She has the reputation of being heartless because she has turned down so many marriage proposals She lives on uince Street I love this name with her Aunt Leona and has a household full of criminals turned servants After her beloved father s death she realizes that she isn t ready to give up the world and work of The Shadow Reader engineering as well as the income She creates a false character Lear to continue on her work She never thinks that the world ofngineering could Cinderella Unmasked (Fairytale Fantasies endanger her lifeFor years Cordelia worked on a special ship called the Andraste The ship is a virtual fortress clad with iron and impregnable from cannon fodder Her father worried that people would use this for nefarious deeds and implored Cordelia to keep the plans hidden and safe Cordelia continued to work on the plans after her father mysteriously died This dream ship has caught the attention of the white and black hats Both want the plans and therefore both want CordeliaEnter Sebastien He is a member of the Zodiac a spy organization for the Crown He has been charged with finding the plans for the Andraste and securing them for England Sebasti. D reveal her deepest secret and trulyndanger her life Besides she hasn’t met a man worth considering untilSebastien Thorne a spy in the service of the Crown One of the lite agents in the group known as the Zodiac he comes to London determined to solve a mystery with roots on the Continent He won’t let anything distract him But is Cordelia Overall a good read Perhaps not for me as I never felt particularly invested in the characters But the book itself was well thought out very detailed and you can see a lot of hard work went into its construction Though it often felt like dry reading and was too wordy at times The male lead was irritatingly dismissive and judgmental of the female spy at the start Without due cause They both acted rather immature in their first reactions to ach other Yet neither had done anything to warrant the other putting his back up You would think no one could take offense within mere minutes of a first time meeting The Power Of A Choice especially when introduced through a trusted friend but it was set up in that Let s hateach other passionately for no discernible reason way perhaps to have conflict The lead female Sophie was also trying a little too hard to seemcool I guess we would say in modern parlance She didn t really seem very comfortable in her own skin And the mphasis the author placed on her not being a lady by birth meant we spent a lot of time with her hang ups about this fact A lot of ffort was put into describing surroundings unnecessarily It s kind of hard for me to pinpoint xactly what I mean when I talk about too much focus on triviality but I suppose this passage below shows it a little with all the rigamarole around some hot water Did water really have to feature that prominently that it s mentioned three or so times in a passage It s water Move on a one sentence mention would do Excerpt In her most ladylike way she ordered the best room and insisted the hot water be brought up as soon as possible Bruce had stayed with Jem to see that the coach was "indeed fit to travel the next daySophie was shown to a "fit to travel the next daySophie was shown to a bright Room The Water Was Heated And Brought The water was heated and brought with remarkable fficiency by the innkeeper s children Sophie hoped it wouldn t cool too uicklyFortunately Bruce came in then worn down by the ffort of final repairs to the carriage Good Better than typical Regency romantic suspense Heroine was pretty damn smart but not off putting Definitely unconventional but not uirky Typical villain though Hero was great Plot was uniue but the author left a plot line unfinished perhaps for the next book in the series The HEA was So Very Typical And A Little Too very typical and a little too considering the story Meh Picked this up because it was free on ibooks read it on my work breaks because I had nothing better to do Romance isn t my genre but very now and then there are standout gems that I Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling enjoy this just wasn t one of them That being said I don t think it would be fair of me to rate it given that I knew going in that it wouldn t be my thing It passed the time and it wasn t grossly chauvinistic and that s goodnough 325 starsThe heroine is an Monsieur Pain engineer yes true she designed build and sell shipsHer latest designs is very advanced in the wrong hand can be a very powerful weapon and when The English and The French in wars that won t good Not many know about this because she created an imaginary guy to continue her workThe hero He is a spy who tried to get his hand on this latest designSee So much potential for this story but unfortunately thexecution not uite there yetEspecially the first 30% gosh it was boringFor this kind of work I wanted to see about her work show us how she did it one page she sitting in her office home won t do Then we know the villain from arly on and the suspense bits was too tameGosh This could be a good read but it make me wanted to chuck my IPadBut still an ok read and currently free on I check the author s other books in this series they all got a better rating than this oneI probably try to read her books again one day I didn t like this one as much as the first I don t care for the protagonists being setup in an adversarial relationship where they mistrust ach other for half of the book The French Civil War is not something I njoy reading about and there were a lot of references to it I also don t care for the idea that spies are willing to sleep with people to get information It may be true but it s unpleasant to read about in a romance because of these things I would give this one fewer stars than the previous bookThe story did keep me turning pages and the characters are Librarian's
