I regret that I haven’t read this book as a child. I believe that a child and an adult would have different interpretations of this book. I believe that for a child, this book will be all about magic and adventure. An adult, on the other hand, would not be able to help himself/herself but interpret and analyze the book as the book is full of allegory and metaphor. This duality of this book might actually be a part of its charm- The Little Prince can appeal to both an adult and child.
I absolutely loved Marrying Winterborne. Cold Hearted Rake was disappointing for me except for the subplot of Helen and Rhys so I was really excited for this book. It’s not the typical plot for historical romance where the hero of the book chases after the heroine. In this book, their relationship seems stable and the story is about their struggle to move past the obstacles they are facing.
Cold Hearted Rake is another historical romance about the chase. An experienced beautiful man chases and seduces an innocent lady who tries to resist but eventually fails. With Kathleen and Devon alone, I did not like Cold Hearted Rake. For me, it’s boring and something that I have seen before. However, I was really interested with the subplot and side characters.
