even know what to say about this book Started out okay, I suppose I mean, Clayton, the hero, was always a bit of an asshat what with the forced marriage thing, but that being said, this is an

which, again historical romance, things like that sometimes happen It was in Outlander and in the first book of this series, but neither of those beatings were with a riding crop nor were they for such stupid reasons such as the one in Whitney, My Love Despite this, if the hero had been a likeable character, I would have been able to get past the beating But, he wasn t.THEN, there s the rape And, I m sorry if some people want to mince words and claim technicalities, but it was rape And it wasn t touching or romantic or heartwrenching in any way, it was disgusting and degrading Then, rah rah 100 pages rah rah, Whitney forgives Clayton Really Come on Okay, I thought, it s her fictional life Just try to move on, forget about it and keep readingAnd, I tried I really did.But then what happens There s another stupid Big Misunderstanding and after all his adament promises and flowery words, Clayton again goes off into a rage and punishes Whitney for something she didn t do So, she leaves him then, right I mean it s bad enough that he did this once, but again and after apparently learning from his mistakes No She lies down and takes like the spineless, whimpering female she is.And that s what really cinched it for me It s all right for characters to have flaws For a character to be at all engaging they are essential But making a character act because of their flaws again and again and have nothing change Well, that s just absolutely pointless The reason for writing stories is to send a message through the actions of characters, and if the characters learn nothing, then how can we 4.5 I CAN T LOSE YOU STARSI ADORED THIS BOOK After reading this one I read all of JM books YES, for me it was that good This story starts off with an beautiful girl named Whitney who s

reading this novel, that I decided I needed an epic romance shelf I mean, why can fantasy be categorized as epic, and yet romance is just romance Whitney, My Love had about as many pages as a GOT novel, and every page was just so good.I read romance for the thrill of falling in love, the passion of jealousy, the excitement of being intimate for the first time, and sometimes for the heartbreak and the angst it brings with it This story captured every one of those, in a breath taking story in the regency era.God, it was just so amazing, and so engrossing This was McNaught s debut novel, turned down again and again by agents who thought it was too developed I know, right too sensual, and just plain too deep for women I think she is one of the leading authors who began this amazing movement in romance, with deeply sensual and compelling stories Now, that movement has just turned romance into three fourths sex and one fourth story, but at least I have many bodice rippers on my bookshelf from the eighties to last me through the apocalypse Cheating, she solemnly replied I do it when I cannot win It s hard to put into words how much I loved these characters, and how much I was completely engrossed in this story The banter, the chemistry, and sometimes the hatred Whitney and Clayton had it all.Whitney was loveable, fierce, quirky, but also young and naive She believes she s in love with Paul, the local gentleman seven years her senior She was only fifteen when her forward acts trying to win his love, gets her shipped to her aunt and uncle in France She grows up, becoming beautiful, and her witty banter makes her become the belle of the ball The Duke of Clay is a profligate rake Richer than God, and one of the most handsome sought after bachelors The thing I loved about this story, is there might have been extreme attraction from the hero s side, but the heroine doesn t even notice him for a while She didn t notice him, having not been able to see outside the circle of bachelors surrounding her It irked the duke, and when he decided he didn t want to court her like the other dandies, he does something shocking Finding out Whitney s father is destitute, about to be put into debtor s prison, Clayton makes him a deal Whitey s hand for 100K pounds, but he wants the chance to court her, without her knowing who he is And the deal is done The Duke of Clay becomes Clayton Westland.Small problem, though Whitney becomes to hate Clayton, still with designs to marry Paul Whitney, My Love was a rollercoaster of love, lust, jealousy, and possession, with a strong hero, and a witty passionate heroine Their problems can be frustrating, based on the issues of early relationships miscommunication, lack of trust, and just not knowing the other so well But that s just what makes the story so relatable heartbreaking, and then heart warming as they fall back together A beautiful story, with all the conflict, tension, and chemistry, to make this story one of my favorites of all time Whitney, my love..ly FOOL.Now that you are happily married and settled in life with a baby on the way, I d like to know some things about your whirlwind romance.First of

enraged After one too many plunges from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, I almost asked my doctor for mood stabilizers Because I m 99.9% sure he d say no, I turned to science instead Below, are the results of my scientific exploration of Whitney My Love, by Judith McNaught.What did I think of Whitney My Love, by Judith McNaught Whitney My Love, is a one star read because Clayton Westland, the Duke of Clay H , is a Grade A Asshole.To accurately determine if the H is, indeed, a Grade A Asshole, I read the following scenes to my husband view spoiler p.626 H gets his twat in a

nipples rise up proudly against my hand The Grade A Asshole The.5 occurred when I begged him to stop half way through the 343rd time Surprisingly enough, he did.While the data indicates that Clayton is not a Grade A Asshole, I disagree So, I m ignoring it I m also ignoring my Hypothesis, which suggests a one star rating if the hero is an Asshole because asshole factor aside, I still liked Whitney My Love I liked how the characters acted in ways that are consistent with their time, upbringing, and personality profiles I liked how the story evoked a vast spectrum of strong, emotions And I liked the witty dialogue, even if some of it was cheesy I also liked the charming, fully developed secondary characters especially The Dowager Lady EubankI thought you were going to snare the most eligible bachelor alive right in front of our tiresome neighbors I expected to hear a betrothal announcement, and instead, I find you standing by yourself Whitney beamed a smile I have snared him and you ll hear an announcement as soon as Paul returns from his trip Paul Lady Eubank echoed blankly Paul Sevarin she repeated Unabashed glee danced in her eyes as she scanned the crowd Is Westland Westland coming tonight she demanded Yes Good, good Her ladyship chuckled and said, This should be a most diverting eveningAnd, Whitney s Aunt, Lady Anne GilbertYour father wants a daughter who is like a cameo delicate, pale, and easily shaped Instead, he has a daughter who is a diamond, full of sparkle and life, and he doesn t know what to do with her Instead of appreciating the value and rarity of his jewel instead of polishing her and letting her shine he persists in trying to shape her into a common cameoAnd, most of allI liked how it reminded me of the wonderful old movies I watched with my mother on the rare occasions she d let me stay up past my bedtime The witty, romantic comedies filmed in black and white, where wealthy, middle aged bachelors fall in love with enchanting young women named Sabrina And the vibrant, Technicolor musicals where bored aristocrats sing of their love for beautiful young imps named GiGi I adored them all, as I did Whitney My Love, by Judith

creature God ever created I m drawn to you like a moth to a flame Just as you are to me Love was a silly, romantic, notion that had no place in his life You beautiful, infuriating, wonderful little fool Don t cry darling Please don t cry any Where is your home she asked Wherever you are Oh my God, little one, Clayton whispered in his heart Pain, like love, is a thing to be sharedBehold your new

good you reasons, I ll have you locked in your rooms and the doors barricaded, so help me God He lifted her foot and began to dry it.Her voice shaking, Whitney asked, Will you stay locked in there
