After continually suffering from nightmares, his brother and sister in law decide to hire a tutor for him, to bring out his speech. Felicity, needs this job desperately. Her father has just passed away, and unless she can come up with the funds, she will be forced to marry someone she despises more than anything. She is shocked to learn that she won't be a governess for a child, but a tutor for a grown man that has a wild look about it, but for some reason she doesn't fear him.
The Daughters of Liberty: Who Were They and What Did They Do?
She senses something more about him, she feels drawn to him. Armand is shocked to find that for the first time in his life, he can touch someone and not be overridden with pain. He knows he must have her, he doesn't understand his attraction to her, but he starts to feel love and will do anything to protect her from those that would destroy him. After reading The Making of a Duchess, I had heard some average things about "The Making of a Gentleman", so I wasn't expecting a great and fabulous story.
I just love it when I am wrong though. The circumstances of the story are exactly what I love about a good book. The hero is different, the kind that we don't see too often. He is a very tortured hero, he can't even speak, has never felt desire for anything, and can't abide another's touch.
Armand has a strong will though, stubborn to a fault, and defends fiercely. Armand is a virgin hero. Which is one of the things I enjoyed about this story.
Its rare to find a virgin hero, and I enjoyed seeing Armand and Felicity grow together in a intimate way. It was such a delight to see these two fall in love, it was very heart wrenching at times. Felicity, has a difficult past, grieves for her father, but is determined to help Armand, even though her life is about to crumble.
I did feel like Felicity could have had a bit more backbone though, but eventually we see her finally have one toward the end. I did like how Felicity is able to reach a part of Armand that no one else is able to, there were many sweet and tender moments of the story that totally captured my heart. Overall a entertaining read, that had such vivid descriptions and such a delicious story that is unforgettable. Full of intensity, passion, intrigue that turns into a wonderful tale.
People of the Revolution
The characters are never well-developed, and the plot drags and drags and drags The story is this: Armand was a French aristocrat captured during the French Revolution, when he was He was put in a prison cell and left to rot, growing up with only a pet rat for companionship. Somehow, 12 years later, Armand's brother rescues him and takes him to the family's new home in England they can't very well go back to France, sadly.
Armand, of course, is uncouth and dirty and childish in behavior, having been forced to grow up in a prison cell. He also refuses to talk or be touched. So, the family gets him a tutor. A young, nubile, blonde female tutor. Yeeeaaahhh, I don't know. It's an incredibly flimsy plot, just so you know. Anyway, the story unfolds from there. Armand is, obviously, hot for sexy teacher, Felicity.
There's also some sort of ridiculous spy plot or something about treasure. It's dumb and poorly executed, that's all you need to you know. Also, the chemistry between the two leads starts out strong, but then heads to Lukewarm City because the author never bothers to flesh out the characters. They are superficial; there are no hidden depths or motivations.
Everything they feel or think, they express. There is no introspection and nothing to indicate that these characters are anything more than Stock Hero and Heroine 25,A, ripped straight from the Harlequin vault of characters. No one had a lickspittle of real, genuine personality. The writing wasn't awful, though.

- Anthropology Goes to the Fair: The 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition (Critical Studies in the History of Anthropology).
It was competent. However, the story, characters and plot were sub-par. IF you're looking for a rich, deep story with wonderful characters, though, look elsewhere. BOY, am I glad I continued! I fell in love with him! He became such a sweet, endearing character once I gave him a chance.
This book number 2 in the series has action, suspense, heartache and joy. I can't wait to read the 3rd book in the series.
