I am still wondering what was author thinking when writing this book.. childish dialogues, story poorly managed and..., i started reading but was not able to finish. Normally, I at least read the ending but here I honestly couldn't care less.
Izzy is the adult daughter of a recently deceased author who wrote fantasy books about a fantasy kingdom (think Tolkien, Rawlings, Star Trek etc.) The premise of the books was the author telling these stories to his young daughter (as in "Princess Bride.") Left destitute upon her father's death (who couldn't be bothered willing her even the royalties from his books) Izzy learns that she has inherited a castle from an old family friend. Upon arriving at the run down derelict castle she discovers the Duke (as in Prince) who was scarred and blinded (but only sometimes) in a duel (curse) and is now a recluse (Beast.) Spunky Izzy decides to hang around to clean up the castle, the Duke and his business affairs. The Duke is angry, lonely and horny - so is Izzy for that matter. He has only his valet for company. He believes the castle is his but since he hasn't bothered to have anyone open and read his mail to him in months he doesn't know what is going on. Apparently he has spent the time since his duel prowling the castle and counting steps between point A and point B. The fantasy books have a fan club and members of the fan club show up at the castle, in costume and talking like the book's medieval characters to pay homage to their heroine Izzy. They also decide that the Duke is the personification of the scarred chivalrous hero of the books. Izzy panders to them by taking them on a tour of the gardens before they leave for their fair, or meeting or whatever (Comic-Con.) I can't help you beyond that point in the book because I closed the page, went to the contents of my Kindle and deleted it.
This author's early books showed promise and I enjoyed them. Recently, not so much. This is the absolutely last book I will get written by her. If I could give it zero stars, I would.
I couldn't believe they kept stating the heroine was unattractive/ugly. The front cover picture is of a beautiful lady but throughout the book she is describe as unattractive. Also, I wish someone warned me that the hero in this book was blind.
