Virginia Heath õ 5 Summary

An unexpected end to the Wincanton–Stuart feudScandal broke last night when Lady Constance Stuart was discovered in the arms of Aaron Wincanton the son of her family's greatest. I really enjoyed this enemies to lovers story by new to me author Virginia Heath It combines an engaging and well written story interesting characters and an emotionally satisfying romanceThe Stuarts and Wincantons have been mortal enemies for the past three hundred years and Lady Constance Connie Stuart has every reason to loathe Aaron Wincanton with a vengeance After he scathingly nicknamed her Ginger ian during her come out six years ago Connie endured hurtful and humiliating jokes about her unruly red hair tall unimpressive figure and long legs In her second year she decided that if she is going to be compared to a mythical warrior she will act like one A haughty air and a razor sharp tongue become her chosen weapons of defence; even her dresses are a statement of defiance They were no longer merely gowns; now each dress was a statement of defiance She might well be an ugly wallflower but that did not mean that she had to be a shrinking violetHaving always been self conscious of the bump on my nose I found it was easy to relate to Connie and sympathise with her insecurities and understand how much she was hurt and humiliated by the constant cruel barbs I so admired her courage in facing her tormentors with defianceConnie is now engaged to the Maruis of Deal and although it is an arranged marriage she hopes to find a measure of happiness until she discovers his true motives Feeling hurt and dejected she finds comfort in the unlikely arms of Aaron Wincanton but when they are caught in a compromising situation Connie finds herself married to her sworn enemyTo everyone Aaron appears a charming flirtatious rogue but this is a mask he wears because the war had left an indelible mark on him He had seen too much death to remain the carefree young man he once was The new Aaron Wincanton found no joy in balls or parties nor did he find it in intimate gatherings or uiet solitary contemplation either He did not deserve to feel joy any Most of the time he felt burdened The rest of the time if he was lucky he just felt numbHe has personal demons to fight ones that conjure up terrifying tortuous nightmares night and day convincing him that he is slowly going mad He is a desperate to find peace but unable to believing himself unworthy of love or forgivenessAaron is shocked to find that the Wincanton estate has been brought to the brink of bankruptcy by his father’s mismanagement All his father’s decisions have been motivated by one thing only – revenge against the Stuarts – without thought for the conseuences All Aaron wants to do is put an end to the pointless and costly feud and restore the family fortunes by marrying a wealthy heiress But his plans go awry when he is caught in a compromising situation with Lady Constance Wincanton and his strong sense of honour compels him to marry her Everything about this marriage was wrong At best they were strangers at worst sworn enemiesI appreciated how Ms Heath takes the time to build the romantic relationship between Connie and Aaron At first there are a lot of angry words spoken but gradually they begin to discover about each otherConnie has always thought of Aaron as confident and charming as though he tiptoed through life largely unscathed – but realises that he has hidden depths and feels things as deeply as she does While Connie was feeling sorry for herself she never realised the sacrifices Aaron made by marrying herWhile society regards Connie as a social oddity Aaron sees her as striking intelligent and witty and finds he enjoys her company Recognising that she has many conflicting and contrasting elements to her personality I like how Aaron compares her to a rainbow At one end of the spectrum she was indomitable sharp tongued and aloof He had been on the receiving end of that with alarming freuency and they had only been together for such a short time But then she was kind hearted Finally buried beneath all of that was a seam of vulnerability that she worked hard to hide—but he knew that it was thereConnie’s kindness gentleness and compassion shines through in her care for Aaron’s dying father and her desire to do everything she can to comfort Aaron and convince him that he has no reason to feel any guilt for his actions during the warI adore Aaron for realising the extent of Connie’s grief and sadness at the loss of her family and for arranging a secret meeting with her mother and brother His throat felt tight with emotion For the first time he truly saw all of her grief and sadness at the loss of her family until she had realised that they had come to see her then the relief and desperation on her lovely face had moved him and he was glad that he had been able to do this one tiny thing for herWhether it is standing up to Aaron’s irascible father or Aaron himself Connie is definitely a force to be reckoned with “Perhaps I did not make myself clear When I said that I wanted to help I meant that I am going to help you whether you like it or not I am not some ornamental woman and I will not let you treat me like one”The sexual tension builds up deliciously so that their falling in love feels genuine and when they finally make love it just seems right Ms Heath writes such lovely romantic scenes and I love this one where just a touch of a hand conveys so much Sometimes I find it far romantic than an overtly explicit scene When his eyes slowly drifted down to her lips and lingered there Connie’s heart began to race His palm was still cupping her cheek making her skin prickle with an awareness that was both uite alien and intoxicating at the same timeI also like how Ms Heath includes lovely touches of humour and this is one of my favourites because it conjured up such a comical picture in my mind The door edged open slowly to reveal him standing there with the handkerchief of surrender in one hand while the other hand held a bucket over his head like a helmet He surveyed the room with exaggerated wariness before he gingerly stepped inside still holding his bucket armour about his head and looking much to her utter consternation uite delightful ‘I come in peace Connie Put down your weapons’The Earl of Redbridge Connie’s father is a truly despicable man Not only does he threaten to put Connie and her mother out on the streets if she Connie refuses to marry Aaron but he selfishly pursues his feud with Aaron’s father to the detriment of his daughter’s happiness A thoroughly dislikeable character whom I’m pleased to say gets everything he deservesI was disappointed in the lack of an Epilogue because but I love seeing the hero and heroine enjoying their well deserved Happy Ever AfterMY VERDICT This was a lovely introduction to Ms Heath’s books and I will definitely be reading I received a complimentary copy from the author in return for an honest review This review was first posted on my Rakes and Rascals blog Book of the Fallen (Requiem, years and Lady Constance Connie Stuart has every reason to loathe Aaron
