A Christmas WaltzI was excited to get my hands on this book yet terribly isappointed that it was such a let Culture and Development in Africa (Comparative Studies in African/Caribbean Literature Series) down My main complaint was with the heroine Amelia I thought she was immature and oneimensional The man she ran after Carson was a no good cad Boone the man who loved her however was achingly vulnerable innocent and thoroughly appealing He saved cad Boone the man who loved her however was achingly vulnerable innocent and thoroughly appealing He saved The Alien Huntress Series Alien Huntress day or rather the story Boone was open to change In fact he longed for it and was eager for his chance to begin a new life in another country I liked that about him Regardless of his lack of experience he had a maturity that balanced the sometimes over sweet lightheartedness of Amelia I believed in Boone s love for Amelia but not hers for him It s too bad because this could have easily been a wildly romantic tale 32 stars I can t say I liked this book it was alright I ve read all three in this series and not sure if it s the books or the authors style of writing Ion t like I ll start with Amelia this is where my problems are Just to start you Activism and the American Novel don t travel half way around the world when your fiance hasn t sent for you When she gets to Texas and finds that everything Carson said was a lie she still believes that he s the man that he pretends to be Amelia admits that she know he lied about most of the stuff he said in London yet thatoesn t set off warning bells in her head She believes the new lies which just makes her look very Agriculture at a Glance Revised Edition dumb Carson has a moment of goodness when he comes into Amelia s room and tells her about Boone s past and that he was leaving that was a touching moment When Amelia wakes up she completely seems to forget that he said he was leaving and is surprised by the news When Boone and Amelia go back to London they go to a ball Boone tells her he is very nervous and when they attend the ball Amelia spends no time with Boone where she should be Amelia spends the whole nightancing with other men she A Love No Less Two Centuries of African American Love Letters doesn t seem to care about anyone but herself most of the time Boone really needed her and all she thought about was herself Iidn #T Really Like Amelia But #really like Amelia but Places of Their Own: African American Suburbanization in the Twentieth Century (Historical Studies of Urban America) did like Boone very much Boone had less experence than sheid when it came to sex and Amelia was his first kiss this is The Arcav Kings Mate (Arcav Alien Invasion different from any book I ve read and it just made to like Boone even Boone had a horrible childhood which explanes alot about why he puts up with Carson There are three books in this Christmas trilogy and last year I recommended A Christmas Scandal which is book two and today I m recommending book three tomorrow I llo book one Marry Christmas For someone that s always reading any series in order I ve no idea why I read this trilogy out of order It really isn t necessary for them to be read in order however maybe I should have Because they would have flowed better time wiseIn any case I m here to let you know that this is a well written plotted and executed sweet sensual and very charming taleWhat I liked best about it is the The Billionaires Arranged Baby 3 dialogue and the fast pace of the story as well as strong characterization of hero and the heroineI adored Lady Amelia Wellesley who might seem flighty and na ve but this woman was one strong female For her to leave her native England and pursue the love of her life an American Cowboy who proposed to her only because he wanted to bed her Turns out Carson s every word to Amelia was a lie He s not a rich rancher Two Forks is a tinyump rather than the lovely prosperous town he escribed and he never intended to marry her to paraphrase his reasoning Well she wouldn t let me touch her otherwise what was I supposed to o Oh and his brother Boone is not a bit slow In fact he s a octor and runs the town s general store and he s the one left to care for this strange lady once Carson runs "Off As Fast As He CanI Uite "as fast as he canI uite the setup here Yes it s completely preposterous but I suspended isbelief Yes Amelia s actions are incredibly stupid but the narrative acknowledges this completely and never tries to tell us otherwise Further it s all pretty consistent with her character And yes this is the third book in a series and that s kind of obvious but I felt Goodger caught us up uite well at least at the start And Boone was a lovely character Boone and Carson grew up with a violent 10 Essential Survivor Secrets to Liberate Yourself from Narcissistic Abuse drunk of a father who idolised Carson andetested Boone it s never really explained why So while he took To Lady Amelia Wellesley it seems utterly romantic to surprise her ashing fiance at his home in Texas so the two can marry by Christmas But Amelia's surprise goes awry when Carson Kitteridge
