E mature enough to deal with this and most importantly I didn t get why she herself wasn t married at 25 It s never explained why she is a wallflower despite her beauty and everything Really this book isn t bad But what really incensed me enough to write a review was the extract from the second book In this book one of the sisters is kidnapped and sold at a brothel I thought her own story would then be about overcoming that trauma but boy was I wrong Her story takes places at the same time at this one so there are entire passages and short chapters repeated word for word But what really pisses me off to no end is the way her ordeal was sed view spoilerThe hero has some big bad secret which resulted in serious issues he can t be near people can t bear to be touched etc He freuented a brothel to have them teach him to accept being touched and is one day invited to a special event at said brothel This special event is the auctioning of a virgin sacrifice the heroine and the Madame thought it would be a good thing for him to finally be the teacher to someone else But wait it gets worse The heroine was kidnapped drugged examined to make sure she really was a virgin and then subjected to the ordeal of standing in front of a room full of drunk men who bid for her Of course the hero steps Kings of Paradise (Ash and Sand up to save her and brings her back to his place And what is her first reaction when she finally wakesp practically naked and in a stranger s bedroom SHE ASKS HIM TO BE HIS MISTRESS No panic attack no screeching no nothing She just calmly asks him to take her because her reputation is surely ruined
