    Spoilering for sake of Buddy Read and probably anyone who hasn t read it view spoiler It is almost, almost unfortunate that Cuevas invites direct comparisons between her first two novels She does so in setting, in bringing up the past characters, in the fact that you have read Bliss and frankly haven t forgotten almost any of it Oh, maybe that s it But maybe it s notWhile I could admire and respect Marie for the first portion of the book, and it looked to be a book, which we discussed, Spoilering for sake of Buddy Read and probably anyone who hasn t read it view spoiler It is almost, almost unfortunate that Cuevas invites direct comparisons between her first two novels She does so in setting, in bringing up the past characters, in the fact that you have read Bliss and frankly haven t forgotten almost any of it Oh, maybe that s it But maybe it s notWhile I could admire and respect Marie for the first portion of the book, and it looked to be a book, which we discussed, almost similar to THE HEIRESS EFFECT in that the hero has all the developing to do, it turned out, for me, all that happened is I got tipped upside down Take a hero who doesn t know how to love or loves in his exacting, expected way throw in a heroine who owns herself but doesn t know how to be lovedand you end up with a little bit of a dissatisfied reader Because while S bastien went from mystery to forthright, charming, pretty amazing hero, Marie ended up quite a mess And S bastien remained this steadfast, focused person who grew I don t mind how Marie fell apart, exactly, but it did leave the end feeling a bit muddied and the reader feeling a bit frustrated with her For this heroine centric reader, that was problematic In the end, she obviously wanted the dance and the chase, which I can appreciate, but also this means her own happiness depended on finding the exact right person who d essentially let her gobut not Luckily, that exact right and convincing hero was indeed S bastien, which is why these books are a joy to read The complements are exact.And again, we re absolutely treated to a beautiful, earthy book with a swoony and controlled hero especially if those proper and put together guys are your gig and a heroine who knows her own mind I just wish thather vulnerability would have feltresolved This is an incredibly high 4 But, the comparisons are direct to Bliss Still, there are memorable parts, but unfortunately, I struggled too much with an indecisive and regressing Marie who never quite showed up for S bastien I did love how he loved her, and I appreciated her through him, but that s not enough The writing left me breathless, their connection was lovely, and the epilogue made me cry Still magic, just not the exact right mix for me.Note to self Upgraded due toprocessing time hide spoiler

    Three stars Four shrugs This is a beautiful novel in both word and action A slow ascension from confused lust to rich love taking two strong minded people by surprise The book is divided into parts and those quite accurately delineate the steps our wayward lovers take stumblingly on the rocky road to forever.I particularly enjoyed the imagery the descriptions of the countryside and woods and flora tied so prettily to the characters and their development Earthiness in both scene Three stars Four shrugs This is a beautiful novel in both word and action A slow ascension from confused lust to rich love taking two strong minded people by surprise The book is divided into parts and those quite accurately delineate the steps our wayward lovers take stumblingly on the rocky road to forever.I particularly enjoyed the imagery the descriptions of the countryside and woods and flora tied so prettily to the characters and their development Earthiness in both scenery and ardor There s also something nearly poetic about the prose Lush and vibrant Bucolic and shimmery It is the backbone of the book My lack of enthusiasm springs from the heroine s struggle Even when reading her reasons and intellectually understanding and respecting them a little voice whispered she s ridiculous I think she s creating this And as the story progressed her strength her fierce independence became a sort of lodestone around her neck She seemed nearly paranoid fighting a battle that didn t exist

    I did not enjoy this book as much as Bliss But I read it right after the first book It might be the same phenomenon as eating two pints of delicious ice cream in a row and saying that the second one was not as tasty as the first Same ice cream though.

    Not the quality of follow up to Bliss I was expecting.

    book Dance is, as far as I m concerned, the single best historical romance title, ever And it has some tough competition for that spot.Cuevas writes beautifully, butthan that, she tells a compelling, engaging and still subtle story This one is about a young woman returning home to Paris to make moving pictures, a new field She is at odds with her father but no longer so intimidated by him as she had been The brother of the man she left at the altar is there, recently widowed He is e book Dance is, as far as I m concerned, the single best historical romance title, ever And it has some tough competition for that spot.Cuevas writes beautifully, butthan that, she tells a compelling, engaging and still subtle story This one is about a young woman returning home to Paris to make moving pictures, a new field She is at odds with her father but no longer so intimidated by him as she had been The brother of the man she left at the altar is there, recently widowed He is earnest, correct in all things, and unable to put aside his interest in her.The clash of personalities she s determined to live as she wants to, despite society s disapproval he has never questioned the way of things directly sets up a battle of wills in which they both must learn to bend It s very hard to find this novel, but well worth the search It follows on from Bliss also excellent but stands alone

    The trouble with reading such a perfect romance novel is that you then have take a break from the genre for a bit because in the wake of such a well written romance all else, even good stuff, will pale Ms Cuevas has a written a story of two adults who know their minds but are nonetheless caught in the tug and pull of an attraction the goes beyond the physical and how they learn to unbend from firmly established preconceptions in able to truly see the accept the other person Besides this we The trouble with reading such a perfect romance novel is that you then have take a break from the genre for a bit because in the wake of such a well written romance all else, even good stuff, will pale Ms Cuevas has a written a story of two adults who know their minds but are nonetheless caught in the tug and pull of an attraction the goes beyond the physical and how they learn to unbend from firmly established preconceptions in able to truly see the accept the other person Besides this we have in Sebastien a real hero in all the ways that matter A man who lives by a code of conduct ingrained in his genes yet generous enough to question and revise these views for the love a woman who is no damsel in distress but rather a modern one full of ambitions contradictions for which she needn t apologize I d recommend reading Bliss first if only because it s a great book itself and there we meet Marie Sebastien for the first time and can then truly grasp who they were why and what a long achingly sweet road they ve travelled by the end of Dance

    Finally done This was such a slog for me I struggled to get through it, and I never really got attached to the characters I had a lot distracting me during the days I read this, though, so maybe it was my problem, not the book s If you guys read and love it, it ll be another Seize the Fire situation where I m the only one who just doesn t get it.

    For some reason, I didn t expect this to be a sequel to Bliss I liked this book so much better than that one Two of the characters who were never far from the action in Bliss come center stage in Dance Sebastian Nardi s brother in Bliss and Marie Nardi s betrothed in Bliss share a moment of passion that galvanizes both of them into self discovery I liked this one especially because it has the rich scenery of Bliss, without the cruelty Marie can be frustrating at times with her absolute For some reason, I didn t expect this to be a sequel to Bliss I liked this book so much better than that one Two of the characters who were never far from the action in Bliss come center stage in Dance Sebastian Nardi s brother in Bliss and Marie Nardi s betrothed in Bliss share a moment of passion that galvanizes both of them into self discovery I liked this one especially because it has the rich scenery of Bliss, without the cruelty Marie can be frustrating at times with her absolute need for independence to the point of dismissing the chance of romance , but understandable given her past, and she comes around in the end.You can find this and Bliss online as PDF or HTML downloads if you search for them I wouldn t normally support such a thing, but I know how hard it can be to find copies of these two books

    Flabbergastingly good This book avoids the errors of fact that marred some of her earlier work but brings alive twocomplex people in a fascinating setting featuring an a disreputable but fashionable painter, silent movie making, and an idyll in the French countryside.If only people were still writing books this wonderful
