      My Take: This book caused me physical pain. I wasn’t even through the first page when I severely regretted the purchase of this novel. I spent the few hours it took me to read it alternately crying from the headache and laughing from just how bad it could get. She managed to use parallel structure in every single paragraph. It’s difficult to call Simon Blackwell the hero of the story, because in no way does he act like a hero throughout the 300-pages of this drivel. His biggest accomplishmen [...]

      Sonunda gözüm kapalı, içime sine sine bir tarihi aşk romanına tam puan vermenin huzurunu yaşıyorum. Hatta tam puanım üstüne bir de yıldızı hak ediyor benim gözümde. En son bu hissi Bir Çapkını Baştan Çıkarmanın Dokuz Yolu kitabında yaşamıştım ama Akşam Yıldızı onun bir tık daha üstündeydi diyebilirim.Yazarın kalemine hayran kalmamak elde değil. Ama bunun yanında bence çeviri muazzam güzeldi. Bu türde, kitabın içine girmemizi sağayan bence çevirinin g [...]

      Bu kitabı inatla yıllarca okumamış olduğuma inanamıyorum!!Çok güzeldi, çok!!Güzel bir Historical bulmanın neredeyse imkansız olduğu bu günlerde, tıpkı Sarah MacLean kitapları gibi bir içim su gibi geldi!!O nedenle bol bulduğum yıldızları Samantha James için ortaya saçıyorum! Gerek konusu, karakterleri, gerek yazımı, çevirisi ve hissettirdiği duygular Her şeyiyle mükemmeldi bence.Umarım devamındaki iki kitap da hayal kırıklığına uğratmaz.

      The Secret Passion of Simon Blackwell can be an entertaining read for people who like heavy drama, and extremely sad, brooding heroes.But sadly, I don't belong in that category. The angst in this book was just too much. At times, I felt like I was being smothered by its intensity--I just couldn't breathe. My frustration mounted every time Simon pushed Anne away for some cowardly reason and another. Oh, I don't want to feel alive. Oh, I don't want to love again. Oh, I don't want to get hurt.All t [...]

      Bazı kitaplar vardır, etkisi üzerinden seneler geçse de silinmez. Eline tekrar alıp okuduğunda ilk kez okuyormuşcasına heyecanla kalbini çarptırır. Akşam Yıldızı kesinlikle seneler geçse de üzerinden etkisi silinmeyen kitaplardan biri. Yazarın o kurduğu dünyaya sadece konuk olmuyor, size hissettirmeyi istediği duygularla o dünyanın bir parçası oluyorsunuz. Tabi ki o dünyanın parçası olabilmek için iyi bir çeviri de şartlar arasında. En az yazarın kalemi kadar ö [...]

      I really struggle with this review. This is a very ordinary romance, predictable, and somewhat unbelievable. I winced quite a few times reading the conversations, mostly at what the heroine, Anne, said. The internal dialogues from the hero, Simon, are sometimes, I don't take much pride in saying this, womanly. This book is like an itch that is just barely out of your reach. It had its moments, where my heart tightened reading the passages. For that I almost gave 4 stars. Those passages where Sim [...]

    7. Sara ♥ on said:

      WOW. Like I said before, Simon has ISSUES with a CAPITAL I. Seriously. But of course, it all works out in the end--Annie wins him over with her undying devotion or it may possibly have been her undying attempts to seduce him. *hmmmm* I can't QUITE remember hahaha! Men can be SO STUBBORN, can't they? All-in-all, a good read. I'll have to try Samantha's other books minus the Scottish ones. I don't do skirts.Excuse me ladies, my husband is trying to seduce ME. *laughs at the sad attempt* :)----I re [...]

      As a whole, I liked the story. Still, I felt like it seemed to be missing something. Something bogged the novel down. Some have suggested that Simon's secret took too long to reveal. My feeling was more that it took too long for him to give in to his lust for Anne. Believe me I love sexual tension being drawn out as much as the next person, but it didn't work for this one. I know too that after a couple gets together you need another conflict to keep the reader interested, so it could be the au [...]

      I enjoyed reading the story of Anne and Simon’s marriage based on one scandalous kiss. I like that they got caught right away and forced into marriage. So often that doesn’t happen in Regencies. I did like the characters in general, though their inner monologues started repeating about halfway through the book. It got just a bit old. Overall, an enjoyable read with a lot of really nice chemistry between the characters.

      the first historical romance book that i read and this one is one of my favorites!

      My English review is down below, you can check out :) Gerçekten, gerçekten "sorun kitapta değil, bende" demek isterdim ama diyemiyorum. Bu aralar pek bir şeyden keyif almadığım doğru; ancak kitap bu durumu aşmama yardımcı olacak bir kitap da değildi açıkçası. Bir kere ikili arasındaki muhabbet çok geç başlıyor. 300 sayfa kitap, 150. sayfada yeni yeni ısınmaya başlamıştı. Ben ikisi arasındaki aşkı hissedemedim, o ayak sürümeler çok uzatılmıştı, böyle kitapta [...]

      Annabel McBride has always longed for the love and passion that she has seen within in her own family, and children of her own. When a almost accident puts Simon Blackwell in her path, she doesn't know if she should run away or draw closer. After sharing a passionate embrace and then having to be married when caught, Annabel hopes that she will be loved in this marriage, however all her hopes are dashed when it is more than obvious that Simon has no intention of sharing a bed with her let alone [...]

    14. Jane Stewart on said:

      Ordinary, somewhat predictable romance. Nothing too special.Ok, but not worth buying. This was a typical regency-style romance novel. A couple meets, they kiss once. Her family forces them to marry due to the kiss. They grow to love each other, have a fight and separate and then get back together at the end. This is an ok formula. Sometimes it works well. Sometimes the conversations and characters make it interesting and entertaining. But this story wasn’t one of those. There were no major pro [...]

    16. Sarah on said:

      A highly emotional story. No murder plots or the like, just a straight forward romance with two unlikely people. The first time that Simon and Anna met he yelled at her, the second she was rather rude to him, the third both of them parted angry with the other. The fourth time they met they kissed and then there fate was sealed. However after there marriage Simon has no intentions of ever touching his young wife again, he plans to remain married for a respectable amount of time and then have ther [...]

      #1 in the series, copyright 2007. This is Annie's story. She's the youngest of the 3 McBride siblings & her story is the most boring, inane waste of time I've read in I can't even remember when! Simon has a terrible secret & he's not going to share it with Annie until about chapter 12. They were forced into marriage after they're caught kissing at a party. Annie has no idea what she's getting into. Simon's first wife & 2 kids were killed in a fire under strange circumstances. In fact [...]

      As of late I've really been into books in which one or both of the characters is either physically or mentally/emotionally scarred. I think it makes them more relatable, as they aren't paragons of perfection. Overall I enjoyed the story and hopefully they make significant appearances in the latter books of the series.

      30+30+30+10Annabel McBride - strong/willful, she knows what she wants, and yet she is feeling. What I liked her the most was that she understood Simon's pain, well, rather, maybe not fully understand, but she respected him, and she did not make fun of it. She was very respectable about the situation and very empathetic. She did not judge him whatsoever and tried so hard to understand him. I really liked her character. Simon Blackwell - widower, writes his pain and hides it away from those he car [...]

      A misleading title, probably chosen for its impact. A more accurate title might have been 'The Secret Agony of Simon Blackwell' or 'The Secret Torment of Simon Blackwell'.Simon Blackwell is a tetchy recluse from Yorkshire who is forced to visit London for a relative's birthday. He rescues a small boy from the hooves of a spooked horse, then berates the woman he thinks is the child's mother. The object of his vicious tongue is Anne, the cousin of Caroline, the boy's mother, who was distracted by [...]

    26. Porsche on said:

      Romance isn't what I usually go for, but for a first stab at the genre it was't so bad. It was a bit cliche' in places. From what I've been told it played out the way all Victorian romances do - boy meets girl - girl and boy must keep up appearances, boy marries girl by force then refuses to ever sex with her, and unfortunate event leads their shotgun wedding, and boy abstains from loving girl because he feels guilty. And then, though a series of very wordy love scenes that could rival Lovecraft [...]

      Bu yorum aynı zamanda Romancekolikte yayınlanmıştır.Kitap güzeldi. Yer yer duygulanıpta ağlamamaya çalıştığım zamanlar oldu. Tabi bu şu anki psikolojik durum yüzünden de olmuş olabilir. O yüzden çok acıklı bir roman olarak algılanmasını istemem. Tam sevdiğim kriterlerdeydi. Kavgalı çiftler, uygunsuz durumda yakalanıp jet hızıyla düğün, evliliğin ilk günlerinin bol kavgalı olması vs derken sıkılmadan okuduğum bir kitaptı.Konusuna gelirsek Anne 20'li yaşl [...]

      Okay, I've read a LOT of reviews from people who loved this book, so it might be worth a try. Simon Blackwell has been hiding himself away since (from the back cover) a "cruel twist of fate changed [his] life irreperably." He came out of mourning only for his aunt's birthday and helped to save the life of Annabel's (honorary) nephew. Thinking that Annabel is the nephew's mother, he reams her a new one. When the boys actual mother, Annabel's best friend, shows up, he is seduced by her beauty. But [...]

      I absolutely devoured this book. James spins a tale about the young, Lady Anne who gets caught in a passionate kiss with the dashing yet tortured Simon Blackwell. As goes with most ladies caught in compromising situations, they must marry - but it's not so unfortunate. As Anne discovers Simon's dark secrets, she falls deeper in love with himbut can he return her love after everything he's been through?Simon is one of the best tortured heroes I've read since Kenyon's Dark Hunters. No, seriously. [...]

      I haven't read anything by Samantha James in a while. I like her style. While there was conflict between the H/H there was also an under current of hope for love everlasting. Any argument/angst was directly related to the situation. The story is about a forced wedding because of a compromising act between the H/H. I don't remember reading but one or two stories with that theme. There is no fighting between the twojust an acceptance and how can we make this work. There was one point in the story [...]
