I sed to love Jane Aiken Hodge way back when but this book makes me wonder why The "storyline was silly the romance lacked depth the characters were nondescript and there really didn " was silly the romance lacked depth the characters were nondescript and there really didn seem to be much reason for the romance other than gratitude and propinuity The heroine Camilla begins falling in love with the hero almost instantly apparently for no reasons other than physical attraction and because he rescues her from governess hell The hero Lavenham takes a little longer because he doesn t trust women Emphasis mine because we re told over and over that he doesn t trust women In fact the story occasionally dips into his point of view just so he can mutter to himself about how much he doesn t trust women The episode from his childhood is certainly traumatic which makes his attitude at least somewhat Coding Theory and Cryptography understandable but after a while I just wanted to say for god s sake growp and get over it The plot revolves around Lavenham s mission to Portugal which is comically vague The author includes a lot of history about Portugal s role in the Napoleonic Wars but skates over minor details like the hero s reason for being there His one brush with danger seems included only to provide a romantic interlude He spends the rest of his time dancing attendance on the Portuguese royals to absolutely no effect It is this life or death non on the Portuguese royals to absolutely no effect It is this life or death non that also leads to his abandoning the heroine for close on 50% of the novel leaving her and his own sister to fend for themselves as war erupts in Portugal This is hardly heroic behavior but is not even the worst of what he does to the heroine Happily for the romance she s willing to forgive him than I was on her behalf All in all a forgettable romance Surprisingly good When I was looking through Unlimited trying to find my next read I stumbled on this little gem Believe it or not I was actually drawn in by the cover It was republished in 2018 with a really beautiful cover When I went to Goodreads I had to laugh when I saw the the cover from the original publis I always loved and devoured ALL the Joan Aiken s I could lay hands on children s gothics regencies short storiesI glommed them all But Jane Aiken Hodgealthough tried repeatedly back in the dayI don t remember ever finishing oneHOWEVER this review makes this one sound kind of interesting Maybe I need to try again now that I ve read the review I m thinking this sounds very vaguely familiar Luckily it s available from Kindle Unlimited so I can try it with no alms or guilt if it doesn t work for me Always nice I first read MARRY IN HASTE when I was in high school over thirty years ago and it was one of the first really great romance novels of my reading life I recently purchased a copy and I was once again an eager young reader devouring the very well crafted story by Jane Aiken Hodge. Camilla Forest a lovely young refugee from France had married the proud and sardonic Lord Leominster There was only one problem she was falling in lov. .


Intrigue espionage and rich historical detail combine with a remote Oh dear really should not reread this I remember reading it when really should not have reread this I remember reading it when was a teen barely able to read english and enjoying it but well you can t go backThe setup of the novel is ite good but the rest is a problem This was a setup of the novel is The Illustrated Dictionary of Toxicologic Pathology and Safety Science uite good but the rest is a problem This was a published in a woman s magazine apparently and the structure of the novel shows it a lot of description of historical eventsite dull sometimes sometimes very slow sometimes very fast action The main problem was the psychology of the characters it s frustrating how emotionally and sexually restrained far than Austen actually Lydia was after all found in bed Here Chloe being compromised raises no practical concerns but nevermind that and sometimes plain stupid the character I love gothic fiction It could be full of clich s and the strangest and the most nbelievable twists but still I enjoy reading it There is something alluring about foreboding malicious atmosphere of these kind of books and about dark brooding heroes with hidden depths and horrible secrets that the lonely heroine has to discover Unfortunately Marry in Haste was a bit of a disappointment for me There were some things that I really liked about it I liked the beginning the novel started very promising I enjoyed dry humour and practical approach to marriage shown by Miss Camilla Forest Romance I begin to see is something of an expensive commodity and I am not sure that I can afford it Camilla in her dire circumstances decided to accept an offer of marriage made by Lord Leominster called Lavenham by his family He had to marry in haste for his grandmother s money Also he declared that he hated women Of course he had some clandestine reasons for that The character I liked the most in this book was Lord Leominster s grandmother She was funny practical and could bear no romantic nonsense You ll do far better for Lavenham than one of those milk and water society misses who think marriage is just another kind of nursery game Unfortunately the promising start led to convulsed plot This novel was published for the first time in 1969 and it felt badly dated Even for me an enthusiast of gothic fiction the intrigue in this book was too far fetched Honestly when I read it I was like WHAT But the most annoying thing about this novel was the way the characters treated foreigners and how they viewed Portugal Only the English way was the right way for them The English breakfast was the best breakfast in the whole wide world The Portuguese houses were dirty the foreigners were annoying and their customs pointless I was hoping to discover the beauty of Portugal and its atmosphere with the characters and was badly disappointed in this regard But I am not giving p on this author and I ve decided to read a different novel. E with her husband And they had agreed that theirs was to be a marriage in name onlySuddenly Leominster was sent to Lisbon on a diplomatic mission Or.
