Read full description of the books To Catch A Countess:Arrant Nonsense..
This book was a HUGE disappointment. Normally, I wouldn't post a negative review about a book but this was atrocious. The heroine was okay but she just behaved like a child, and though I liked her, I do not see how she classifies as a hellion when the hero would say jump and she would say, "how high Alex?" Ridiculous, the story was not developed well but had high potential. I did not like the family members manipulating the heroine and making fun of her in everything she did. Now the hero deserves to whipped. Worst hero I have ever read, and I have read many books with shitty heroes. I did not like the fact that he had 3 by-blows from three women at the same time yet he has the audacity to misjudge the heroine. I also disliked how the author just fed a load of crap about how the hero rules everything and the heroine must obey. He humiliated her publicly throughout the book and even dragged her name through the mud in public. The author expected us to just forgive the hero because men are flawed and can't control themselves. I didn't like aunty Roxie either because her advice were rubbish. The book got interesting towards the end from the trial but the heroine forgave the "hero" too easily after the insults and public humiliation while she was pregnant. At the end I wanted Victoria NOT to end up with Alexander because all he said was, "I apologise" and "I love you" then expects everything to be fine. After what he put Victoria through, he should have grovelled and kissed her feet. She too, should never have forgiven him so easily. The ending felt so rushed and left me dissatisfied. He was not even properly remorseful because the entire family kept meddling and manipulating the heroine in his favor.
I only gave this 2 stars for the heroine because I liked her, but this is one of the worst book I have read from the author.
I like Patricia Grasso books but this was not good at all..
Read information about the authorI'm a dog person. Who lives with 10 cats. Get the picture?
My first brush with the romance genre happened in my high school junior year. I discovered Gone With the Wind and hid it behind my American history book to read during class. (The Civil War is American history.) The ambiguous ending left me dissatisfied, though. Rhett and Scarlet needed a happily-ever-after. Believing in happily-ever-afters positively screams romantic-at-heart.
On the other hand, I love murder and mayhem as much as happily-ever-after. My usual television fare is fiction and nonfiction crime shows, not love stories. Which accounts for the mysteries I sneaked into my historical romances. Now I'm trying my hand at writing a humorous mystery, sans historical and sans emphasis on the love interest. I even prepared for my mystery-in-progress by attending the local NRA's Pistol School. Shooting pistols is great fun. I adore the .22 semiautomatics.
After graduating from high school without distinction, I earned both Bachelor and Master degrees at a state college. Again, without distinction. I held several part-time jobs during my college days: file clerk in an insurance company, long-distance telephone operator, kimono-wearing waitress in a Japanese restaurant.
And then I began my teaching career, eighteen years in the eighth grade and thirteen years at the high school. Weary with the same old routine, I decided I needed a creative outlet. So I decided to write a romance novel but only managed to talk about writing one. After five years of listening to me, a friend said to stop talking and start writing.
So I did.
I made every mistake known to man. Blunder would be a more appropriate word, but I did learn using the trial and error method. As well as studying the works of authors I admired.
After five years of writing for nothing but love, I sold my first novel. Since then, I've sold eighteen novels and won several awards--- National Readers' Choice Award New England Readers' Choice Award, Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice and KISS Awards, B. Dalton and Bookrak Awards for best-selling author. My novels have been translated into fifteen languages and sold in twenty countries.
If I had my life over, would I become a writer? Nope. I would enjoy being a Victoria Secret model. Perhaps in my next incarnation I won't be too old, too short, or too unphotogenic.
