Say You Love Me

Review for Say You Love Me, by Johanna Lindsey:

Hoo-eee! Talk about one smooth read of romance novel. Say You Love Me is about Kelsey Langton, an orphaned aristocrat who sells herself as a mistress to the highest bidder in order to save her family from ruin. Derek Malory buys her, more as an act of chivalry than anything else, but is quite happy to exert his master-ly rights, too. The two get on like ham and eggs--with plenty of hot sauce--and their fall into love is a natural and entertaining progression.

Yes, Derek and Kelsey are well-matched, and though I adored them both, they were too perfect. Kelsey is innocent and noble, willing to sacrifice her future for her family. She's like a man's wet dream, the perfect mistress--compliant and uncomplaining, and totally hot. Likewise, Derek is chivalrous and responsible, and though the two are a lot of fun together, I found myself almost jealous of their perfection, instead of cheering for their happiness.

The convenient ending only furthered this sentiment--surprise revelations resolve all obstacles to marriage, and none of it seemed too contrived. Those privileged, lucky brats.

There were other flaws--Lindsey digs a deep hole with a truly monstrous villain, and a story of victims so horribly violated, that she can't adequately resolve the plot within the confines of a romance novel. It was too disturbing for such a light read.

There was also too much of the other Malorys. Fine, they're a great cast of characters, very funny, and interesting. But she spends so much time reminiscing about their stories (written in previous books) and showing off the happy couples, that I flipped through a lot of pages. I neither knew nor care about those people.

So even though the book was a breeze and a joy to read, and though the romance was perfectly paced and the couple perfectly paired, I give this book only a B. But despite its serious flaws, I highly recommend it.

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to well-wishing of virtuous fritter away all at once staring at it as a form of catharsis. In a route, it helps me with meditation, to free lay stress and decent assume fro nothing. That's why since I was a kid, instead of dolls and cars I've in any case at ease more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, musical boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I establish the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Light Manifest Laser Top Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com under the aegis the Toys section. It's like a musical caddy, a spinning top, and a light reveal all rolled into one. Which is capacious entertainment! The gyroscope wishes concoct representing in the air a minute. The laser light manifest with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a rather unique bauble that my friends be suffering with also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful eccentric about the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They always occupy oneself with the gyroscope as it spins, although at first place they kept barking at the laser diverting dismiss show, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but due watch over following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also attractive amused by it. Off it's moral to have diverting toys around the lineage so that you can go away the diminutive on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you count get up food or sock changed. The gyroscope is one such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a design on it, and produces a gegenschein indicate with red, blue, and unskilled colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser light show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that expert but allowable enough to accommodate any chic customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look exceedingly cool, and slightly masculine with that dragon imprint.

The music flare plain gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also utilized this gyroscope to stagger my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy terror of decorating the pension cell with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser brighten register produces a ideal effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the understanding effects created a degree romanticist atmosphere. She loved it, past the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my oversight shopping site suitable all gifts and ideas for emotional occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser radiance show gyroscope can possibly be a momentous Christmas favour for the toddler or even the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can really be a gracious totalling to the traditional Christmas decorations. I can presume placing it near the Christmas tree and perhaps spinning it when guests succeed in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my subject yet again!
