The Lady Flees

So got a new book from Sourcebook. This one is about a rich lady who is overweight and married the handsome Lord thinking he was in love with her. Turns out he was using her for her money. When she discovers that he is basically going to sell her around to his friends for fun she flees. On her way of fleeing she is handed a child and told that the mother is applying for work. Turns out the woman just fleaced our heroine.
SO now she is not only fleeing an abusive husband but also fleeing with a child trying to pretend to be a war widow.
That's great until the Lord on the manor she is living at returns and starts having the hots for her. And wouldn't you know it she likes him to.

The book is good I am at the part where the Lord of the mannor is trying to spend more time with her and yet he knows something is not right. In other words he knows she is hiding something and he wants to know what. At the same time he is attracted to her but doesn't feel as if he is worthy of her love in return.
I am liking the book the only issue I can see coming up is the lying. This whole time she has lied to him about a husband that doesn't exist that died in a war that the hero fought in. The whole reason he is respecting her at this point is b/c her husband was a brave fellow and a fellow fighter. Also she is still married and if I'm not mistaken marriages don't get dissolved that easily. And since she was unable to get pregant with the VILE husband I am betting the first time the hero and Heroine hook up she will get knocked up (typical romance ploy) so then is the baby going to be a bastard????
Anyway I will update you as I read. I am hoping to have a review up by Friday and Michele was gracious enough to answer some of my many, many questions so I will post her interview as well.

Still working on the first I swear. However, I have officially started Hex Appeal and I have to say it is SUPER cute. So far me likes what me sees and I regret that I am giving up my copies (go to other blog to enter the coolest contest on the planet)

Anyway I am about half way through and I am starting to remember the first book and the reasons I liked it so much. I like Jazz and I really, really like Nick! (side note: Nick is a freakin' hot alpha guy that loves his Jazzy (sidenote within sidenote: yes this is my new nickname for her) for her and her quirks) K where was I? oh yeah this started off with one really HOT sex scene that turned out not to be a sex scene but a really bad nightmare.

You see Nick is a vampire and in the dream he and Jazz are having great sex and then WHAM he rips her throat out. Well as you can image Jazz wakes up madder than hell that he would do this and Nick has no idea what is going on. SO she leaves only to have fluff and puff (holy terror bunny slippers) accused of killing a carnie guy (not really a guy more like a were weasel) anyway the story progresses from there. (and that was just the first 20 pages or so)

I will give you more as I go right now I am Really tired so anywho the short end is Jazz is figuring out that this is a dream but she doesn't know why she is having them...
