    One thought on “Dedication”

    1. coffeeandink.dreamwidth/52Original version, review 11/6/2005:Once Fabienne Craigmont and Adam Ashworth were lovers: she a French aristrocrat just escaped from the Reign of Terror and he a rakish young idealist who belonged to a society of aristocrats who believed in free love and the rights of man--but not, you know, any interference in their own property. Now, twenty years later, Adam is a conservative country gentleman distressed over his daughter's troubled marriage and Fabienne is a stylish [...]

    2. I like the sound of this book from the blurb, and for the most part the concept works quite well. Where it stumbles for me is when a huge pet peeve of mine is shaken awake and is never put back to sleep until the very end.Twenty years ago Adam and Fabienne were in love, but when they went their separate ways, a lot of hurt was left on both sides. Now they’re back in each other’s lives when Adam’s godson becomes enamored of Fabienne’s young artist, Elaine, whom she’s taken under her win [...]

    3. I first heard of this story with great interest because it has an older couple as the h/h. Older than we usually see in historicals I mean. They even had a less than happy past together and I usually like those stories so I had great expectations.I was however puzzled by how Mullany decides to reintroduce them to one another. The hero holds some knowledge from the heroine and that should have created an unbearable tension between them. That was what I was expecting but not what I felt. Maybe it' [...]

    4. I read the original Signet. I appreciate Janet Mullany's clever writing and deft dialogue. The denouement is, I think, self-consciously a little silly -- as this is her debut, the balance and mood become better aligned in subsequent novels.

    5. blue-moon/spipp?article8867Janet Mullany n’est pas une auteure comme les autres. Elle le prouve dans cet étonnant roman qui ne ressemble à rien de ce que vous pouvez avoir lu dans la romance historique. Elle reprend les thèmes, les explore totalement et invente sa propre histoire compliquée etinattendue. Cela peut surprendre mais à la fin, force est de constater qu’elle nous étonnée et plutôt ravie mais attention si vous cherchez quelque chose de classique. Cela ne l’est pas.Cela c [...]

    6. Why I downloaded this book-1. Hero is 43 and a grandfather (!)2. heroine is 373. Bondage scene?! ( it was very tame)4.H actually loved his first wife and hasn't had sex since she died (10 year)5. It was freeI was somewhat startled that early in the book. The heroine actually has sex with a young lover who is not the Hero!The convoluted plots twists resulted in a 2 star deduction.

    7. WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITE ROMANCE NOVELS AND WHY DO YOU HATE THEM?DEDICATION BY JANET MULLANY, BECAUSE I LOVED HER OTHER BOOKS AND WAS SURPRISED BY HOW CRAP HER FIRST ONE WAS. THE VILLAIN IS A CARTOONISHLY EVIL GAY MAN WHO WANTS TO RAPE THE HEROINE BECAUSE HE'S GAY FOR THE HERO. IDK.

    8. I have read much worse books but this one was bad in a particularly frustrating way. The way characters emote just does not seem to work for this reader. Characters seem to go from A to Z in any scene without the reader having a clue or it making any sense.

    9. "Dedication" was a well-written novel that kept my interest throughout. The love story made me feel both young and old at the same time. It's funny how that works out sometimes. I was expecting something a little more rougher along the edges but it was smoothed out well all around.

    10. Older hero and heroine always gets my attention. It was a complex plot for the length of the book and therefore difficult to flesh out the main characters. Nevertheless, it was a fresh concept and I liked it.

    11. The premise was really good, but the story went too fast and had too many things going on. And I hate to say it, I'm not sure I liked any of the characters. Might be a better book for a different reader, this one was not for me.

    12. The first half is excellent. The second half got dragged down with silly unnecessary drama. So on average 3 stars.
