Nina Pennacchi ↠ 9 Summary

Lemonade Summary Ì E-book, or Kindle E-pub As a young woman in Victorian England Anna Champion knows all too well the social s that value prettiness over sense and etiuette over honesty But when she stands up to the boorishness of dashing Christopher Davenport at a summertime bal A bittersweet extremely dark historical erotic romance set in nineteenth century England written originally in ItalianThough I have no way of comparing the translation to the original I enjoyed the writing A woman s beauty mark looks like a large fly against her face A sinister man reaches out to a child his sweaty palm like a hairless mouse A tear shines against the whiteness of a woman s bare skin causing the man who provoked it to suddenly feel a horrible thirst Despite its seemingly lighthearted title the mood in the novel Lemonade is dark and lugubrious yet the doom is interrupted from time to time by lighthearted moments and humor mostly due to the heroine s sharp wit and the comical styling of her brood of siblings The hero or rather anti hero the mysterious Christopher Davenport is straight out of those old fashioned bodice rippers aggressive immoral cruel dark and broody But he has met his match in the appropriately named Anna Champion While she is poor and unfashionable her strength of character and her intelligence match her surname She easily discomfits her arrogant adversary even as he is trying to be his most pompous and cutting Christopher seemed to read her thoughts and he stopped I have every right to call you whatever I like Anna Champion His voice was harsh and insulting You on the other hand have no right whatsoever to be in this house except as a servant These words the words of a ridiculous snob were so predictable that under other circumstances Anna may have considered them to be a sad attempt at humor I would have no problem whatsoever if I were a servant here or anywhere else she replied ueasily Her heart was beating in her throat but that didn t prevent her vocal cords from working not much at least I would remain myself no matter what But what would remain of you without your elegant clothing Nothing like the man that you are Christopher stared at her silently for a few moments stunned A worthless man I understand he muttered finally He lowered his head and looked at his hands placed on the table then he looked up again at her and Anna knew that her instinct was not wrong this man was truly dangerousChristopher thinks he hates the plain Anna on sight but that very emotion he thinks she has stirred in him gives way to a dangerous and single minded obsession Her resistance only fuels his desire to dominate her Even if it means insulting humiliating and finally ruining her You re begging me Anna he said tenderly in a hushed tone He kissed her head startling her I didn t think you were capable of that He dropped his head into her hair breathing in the scent She closed her eyes That is what this man wanted to defeat her And so she did not react She did not move she did not try to push him away and he remained in that position for what seemed like a very long time The silence of the room was punctuated with their irregular breathing and the agitated beating of their hearts Do you hear his heart Anna It s beating almost as fast as yours isn t it It was beating yes It was beating and Christopher let up on his grip of her wrists Then he let them go They dropped down to her sides but she didn t put them back up to fight No she stood still just as he wanted And when she felt him put one hand on her side and the other on her head she let him In silence She allowed him to run his finger through her curls and softly tousle them Never ever was there such cruel tenderness Good girl Christopher finally whispered to her and he lifted his head I see that you understand He moved back far enough to see her face hanging low and in tears I will let you go then For now At the time of writing available free on KU

Lemonade Summary Ì E-book, or Kindle E-pub L Anna unwittingly attracts his wrath and becomes entangled in his malicious schemingAfter a lifetime of harboring shame and resentment Christopher a ruthless con artist wants revenge and unfortunately for Anna he’s decided that she wi Buddy read with the wonderful Karly Her reviewI m at a loss as to how to talk about this book It s not like I condone love stories between a rapist and their victim but if you re going to write one this is how you do itI don t know that I fully understood what I was getting into when I decided to read this I had heard there was rape but I ve read lots of books involving rape between the leads The difference was that the rape in LEMONADE was much brutal than the forced seduction of old bodice rippers and it was never framed as anything other than thatThe characters were so well drawn that I ended up enjoying this much than I might otherwise have Anna was likable and strong even when she seemingly bent to Christopher s will and her reactions to him were incredibly realistic Christopher s most personal inner thoughts were written in such a way that I ended up feeling pity for him even as I hated him Everything about their story was so heartbreaking in so many ways He did everything wrong and the glimmers of hope and love that showed between them were so sad because if only Christopher had acted like a good human being they could have shared something truly wonderful Because oh my god their chemistry was crazy But their relationship was forever tainted by his initial rape of her and all the ways he belittled her and held her at his mercy after thatAnd the ending kind of killed meThis is a recent book written in a style similar to other historical romances yet it hearkens back to the old bodice rippers where rape by the hero was the norm However with the profusion of dark romances on the market where the male leads consistently rape the heroines and then are excused in a variety of insanely frustrating and stupid ways it was refreshing I think to read a romance where this wasn t the case
