Book: Mr. Impossible by Loretta Chase
My Thoughts: I’ve always been a fan of the romance genre, but it’s been a long time since I’ve read anything from the genre, so I decided to start off with this novel.
It’s a historical romance about Rupert Carsington and Daphne Pembroke, who are trying to rescue Daphne’s brother. She’s the brains, and Rupert is the brawn. Some of the imagery is absolutely hysterical, which is one reason why I like romance so much. Plus, romance (as a whole) is very predictable, and sometimes I want to read something where I know that X event is going to happen on Y page.
So, imagery. It’s your typical “this is what they look like, and I’d like nothing more than to make them want to get in bed with me” imagery. It was fairly descriptive, which was just okay at times, absolutely hysterical at others.
Rupert wants Daphne, but she doesn’t want to admit that she wants him too. Miles ends up being saved, and Daphne and Rupert end up being married.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5. An interesting (and sometimes funny) re-introduction to the world of romance.
