Goddess of the HuntIte a rake or too overwrought with damage he s just a dude who s seen some shit i also appreciated that the plot didn t end at just a marriage proposal i think that s uite common in a lot of modern like 2010 present published historicals and i am finding i really appreciate when characters et married and then actually have shit to deal with which this one had i really liked the deeper level of intimacy the characters A Heart of Stone gained beyond fleeting attraction and sexoverall i really liked this i think if you like dare s latest books this might not be a hit for you but it really worked for me 45 stars Goddess of the Hunt was a fun andreat historical romance book to read Tessa Dare has this excellent ability to write female characters well Lucy Waltham will be up in the list for one of the best female characters that I ve read in a historical romance bookAnd I ve read just a few hahaLucy is funny intelligent utsy and does not take any shit from the Earl of Kendall aka Jeremy Trescott Lucy has been rowing up with her brother s friends for years and she s finally coming into her own She thinks she s in love with Sir Toby Aldridge another friend of her brothers and decides to use Jeremy as a test subject to make Toby fall in love with herBoy is she Language and Linguistics going to be surprised when the emotionally closed off Earl of Kendall is not THAT closed offBoth characters in this book werereat I loved the chemistry and the witty conversations between Lucy and Jeremy Whew I needed a cold shower from some of the scenes between these twoI m hoping the rest of the series will be just as Divertimento good as Goddess of the Hunt It was a fun and crack worthy book to read in a few days Dang Why aren t there stars This book hit me right where I wanted it to right when I needed it Funny heart wrenching and incredibly romantic I had a very hard timeetting this story out of my head when I had to put it down to Love Is a Fairy Tale go do those tedious things that other humans expect of meAs I said in myiddy post above Tessa Dare does all those things I ve been wanting authors to do Yes there s angst and some separation and misunderstanding but neither of the characters had to be struck TSTL in order to achieve these plot points Their misunderstanding was the most organic I ve seen in a long long time I couldn t fault either of them for believing what they did even though I knew they were dead wrong It wasn t a frustration because it wasn t manipulated by the author to fulfill a templateI do hope we Promise at Dawn get to see this couple in the companion books They re really delishI was drawn to this book by Dina s review and then by others who started piping up HMS Rane Alexis take a bow So I won to into any detail about the story because it s been covered nicely I m looking forward to the next ones but I might do some rereads in between so I don t et burnt out Obviously I m very enthusiastic and excited about this new author D Kinda cute Kinda blah Lots of ups and downsPros Highly entertaining and fun with humor like all of Dare s other books The protagonist s character development Some cute scenes and bantering between Lucy and Jeremy Second half of the book shows maturity and adds a realistic touch with them *sorting things out after etting together Lucy s developing relationship with her brother They started out rough but I really liked *things out after Bangkok Wakes to Rain getting together Lucy s developing relationship with her brother They started out rough but I really liked things eventually developed between them His protectiveness was sweetCons The protagonist is immature and weak compared to Tessa Dare s other protagonists Lucy canet annoying while trying to seduce Toby at all costs and while initially being flippant about her duties and responsibilities as countess With that being said in the pro section I definitely do see some character development I would have liked a bit but I do appreciate that she matures a bit Even though the 2nd half of the book is mature and serious it is also very irksome Lots of thinking and fretting and not enough talking Extended misunderstanding and miscommunication trope I swear their problems would ve been solved if they just outright said what they were thinking since Day 1 problems would ve been solved if they just outright said what they were thinking since Day 1 they The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery got married or any day or week after that Dragged out way too long I am a bit uncomfortable with how Jeremy is so strict with the poaching laws I mean Iet that things worked differently back then However he saw the cruelty that his father displayed and yet he wasn t motivated at all to change things based on his own Darkmere goodwill It s disappointing that he was only ever willing to be kind to the poor starving people around him when Lucy reuired it I expected from him honestly Also the book didn t really show as muchrowth as I would have liked on this area Final thoughtsI m iving this 25 stars because I didn t love it I didn t hate it I just have to compare this book this protagonist and this love interest with Tessa Dare s other series and characters from there and so far this has fallen short Her protagonists are so strong and hilarious in her other books and Lucy is a bit of those things but just not enough This book is still overall enjoyable though it can be cute and it can be thoughtful at times I M Looking Forward To Reading The Next Book And m looking forward to reading the next book and how it oesThings that you might want to know WARNING Spoilers belowIs there a happysatisfying ending view spoilerHappy ending with epilogue Cliffhanger ish because
