boy Ivan was actually not a stable boy He became lord and came to inherit the castle where said lady Elizabeth grew up As young adults teens they had a thing Ivan was extremely attracted to Elizabeth and made his move , so to speak one day Elizabeth also liked Ivan, but she freaked out and turned on Ivan after they shared a passionate kiss Ivan went away and Elizabeth never married They met again when they were both adults Now positions reversed, Ivan was the lord and Elizabeth the poor woman who had to marry soon to support herself and her siblings It all sounds ok until you actually read the book Elizabeth did not know her own mind That was annoying enough Then Ivan, oh Ivan, this name made me think of Ivan the idiot I can t help it Ivan is a name I wouldn t even wish on my worst enemy The interactions between Ivan and Elizabeth seemed forced and did not create a romantic relationship I couldn t feel that they were attracted to each other at all We see often couples at odds with each other in romance novels This is nothing new, but somehow the writer must show us how they found a way to reconciliation and forgiveness This, did not happen in this book The writing was fine Meagan McKinney is a good writer but the plots leave much to be desired in this book Ivan Tra has a chip on his shoulder and now that he s the newly christened Marquis of Powerscourt he intends to go back to his country home and make those who made his lives hell regret their very existence Included in this group is the beautiful Elizabeth Alcester, a formerly entitled woman who has fallen on hard

of this book is a constant black typo and its stays and forth between Ivan and Lissa I want you but you hate me I hate you yet I lust for you I m not worthy of love This book is so unbelievably frustrating I wanted to tear my hair out My poor bald spot Ivan is such a looming, Gothic monstrosity of a character that its obvious he s got some redemption coming his way please god please and Lissa is the one that is destined to deliver it The problem is that Lissa isor less like a fart in the wind poof and she s dissolved When she finally does grow a pair she nearly castrates herself in her doubt of Ivan s redemption, which completely undermines the whole book, no No Oye The hubs can attest to the amount of times he caught the twisted expression on my face while reading this book, a countenance of intrigue and disbelief I finished When Angels Fall because I wanted to see these two get their crap in order, and they Just Barely I d categorize this as a Gothic read, what with the dark and controlling hero and his old castle And our pushover heroine But the only ghosts in this story is the righteous indignation carried on its characters shoulders from by gone days Regardless, I

ME My very first book by Meagan McKinney, i easily realized why she is so popular among Bodice Ripper fans She writes with such an easy but sophisticated flow that When Angels Fall was a very fast paced read for me Once the unwanted bastard Ivan Tra now has become Lord Ivan, eleventh Marquis of Powerscourt the most powerful man in London With a bit of manipulations and deceptions on the score he wishes to direct a sworn vengeance to the one woman he has ever loved, the spirited Elizabeth Alcester Like Elizabeth mentions..they were born to destroy each otherBut they were both humans whose souls cried out for each other.Elizabeth Lissa were a remarkable heroine to me Her strength and stubborness fascinated me,and the way she took care of her siblings was really admirable I was so glad for her blind sister Evvie to find true love in Ivan s manager Holland they were such a cute couple But Elizabeths flaming romance with Ivan was all OH SO HOT that i felt that my eyes burned sometimes Just WOW their sexual chemistry was way OVER the pages and it left me yearning forI also somehow like it that she becomes friends with Ivan s former lover, and that OW was no bitch at all, but a very wonderful woman to her She was at Lissa s side the whole time and even persuaded her that Ivan truly loves her.Ivan Oh Ivan What a man He scared many characters in this story..and yeah me too When he from the beginning of the book stares mesmerized at a painting of Lissa, i knew that his obsession for her cutdeeply and dangerously as anything else He was such a wicked brute that i sometimes laughed at his attempts at infuriating Lissa And the hilarious way Lissa made him furious with jealousy in the end made me giggle as hell, Oh but i loved it when he finally lost his cool facade This man s heart was breaking with rage every time he saw her and she wasn t his I am glad that this tortured hero got his woman at the endthat they both FINALLY got their HEA There were some unanswered questions, and i wonderabout the reasons behind Ivan s thirst for revenge towards Lissa I also wish there were an epiluge, but this one is a standalone and also awfully REALLY GREAT written and the plot line and romance got me hooked to the end This didn t work for me Ivan, the bastard heir of the local Marquess, grew up working as a stablehand for Lissa s family Ivan is finally allowed to inhabit the family castle after a fallow period stipulated in his father s will meant as a last F U to him, and Ivan is intent on wreaking revenge on the local townspeople through Lissa When Angels Fall is a gothic read featuring an asshole hero Sounds good, right My main problems with When Angels Fall 1 Lissa loved Ivan ever since she was a te This didn t work for me Ivan, the bastard heir of the local Marquess, grew up working as a stablehand for Lissa s family Ivan is finally allowed to inhabit the family castle after a fallow period stipulated in his father s will meant as a last F U to him, and Ivan is intent on wreaking revenge on the local townspeople through Lissa When Angels Fall is a gothic read featuring an asshole hero Sounds good, right My main problems with When Angels Fall 1 Lissa loved Ivan ever since she was a teenager because it clearly didn t matter whether Ivan was a stableboy or a marquessWe gradually find out that Lissa in her youth loved Ivan so much to the point that she once cried to him, asking him why he doesn t find her pretty Really, girl There is no mention at all of the differences in their class stations except for when Lissa is trying to insult him It doesn t matter to Lissa that he grew up as a stableboy, and I find that completely unrealistic If you were gentry that married the merchant class, that was considered a progressive match It would have added to Lissa s character if she had some inner turmoil about her relationship with Ivan and that would have also added some credibility to Ivan s revenge plot However, Lissa s mental energy is spent wondering if she is a harlot like her mom I can t stand heroines who beat themselves up about this stuff, letting the question, Am I a harlot like everyone says I am paralyze her from life, especially when the question is so stupid because it s obviously not the case And oh, neither was her mom Let s just leave this tired and boring trope behind This was a major problem because it meant I did not connect with the couple I did not know why Lissa and Ivan liked each other I think it s because they had the hots for each other And I m perfectly fine with love at first sight obsessive love motivations but I didn t feel the why of their relationship Teresa Denys The Flesh and the Devil is an excellent example of obsessive love at first sight between a titled lady and a mercenary servant Hey he even has a scar too 2 The motivation for vengeance doesn t make sense and the execution of it is badIf Lissa loves him so much, what screwed it all up If you were expecting a betrayal that makes sense, don t hold your breath It turns out view spoiler she caused his mysterious scar when she accidentally hit him with a riding whip when she is trying to go on a ride after her parents bring their extramarital drama home, and Ivan is stopping her because her horse isn t safe right then to ride hide spoiler This is just the worst big misunderstanding Also, it gets dragged out for the whole story.Meanwhile, Ivan exacts his vengeance by getting rid of Lissa s suitors so she has to apply for a position at the castle as his servant At no point during their cat and mouse game is it clear why he s doing this to her We just hear it said he wants revenge and he can t take revenge on the rest of the town so he is doing it to her But what did the townspeople do besides treat him as a stableboy It doesn t even sound like they bullied him as a stableboy but that because he had to work as one when he was the bastard heir to the Marquess, it messed him up I neededinto why Ivan was so butthurt and so butthurt against Lissa 3 wtf ending Let me just say that if the last scene is the heroine worried the hero will ditch her at the altar, that does not scream happily ever after, especially when the hero didn t even properly grovel It was five years since Elizabeth Alcester had laid eyes on her former stable boy, Ivan Tra five years since her world had collapsed in devastating ruin around her Now, penniless and desperate, she finds herself at the mercy of a cruel, ruthless stranger a man who vows to possess her, whose hot searing caresses fan the flames of her darkest desires Tra had returned home in triumph the unwanted bastard was now Lord Ivan, eleventh Marquis of Powerscourt the most powerful man in London Yet one woman had sworn to defy him the proud beauty whose touch had branded him forever But when at last he holds Lissa trembling in his merciless embrace, his lust for vengeance suddenly explodes in a frenzied fever of passion, and now no power on heaven or earth can tear him from the innocent arms that hold him captive, or protect her from the rapturous moment when angels fall A great Victorian Bodice Ripper with a Tortured Hero and a Magnificent HeroineI guess I should say at the outset that I am a fan of McKinney s historical romance novels This one, set in 1855 prologue in 1850 , is a wonderful, well told story of how the wounds
