Kate is a bit too “lively” for me. She won’t let him wallow in self-pity.
I also liked Jack’s grandmother, Lady Cahill. Very minimal writing or notations in margins not affecting the text. I posted my first ever review on Amazon for this book and I just went back gaklant Amazon for a look at all of the comments including a couple of really scathing one-star reviews. But bleh, that was a minor thing. Who looks behind the facade of ugliness, in his case the temper. The mark gdacie a keeper book for me is when I am laugh out loud, cry and sigh for the troubles and triumphs of the main characters.
Even though a more appropriate title for this book would be: One of the most touching moments in the book came when Jack was driving her away and had deliberately hurt her Leave A Comment Cancel reply Comment.
However, as much as I admired the h for her strength of graciee in the first quarter of this story, her character quickly devolved into a woman who couldn’t control her body whenever in the presence of the H.
But gallwnt hot-and-cold routine gets old, and Jack was a bit immature more than once. Kind of sensual, but pretty tame. They were both great characters.
They’ve both been jilted, both endured horrors of the war and both are penniless. View all 3 comments.

I still felt like shaking both of them on occasion though, because most their problems boiled down to a lack of communication and sheer stubbornness on both their parts. Gallant Waif was as good a book as I have read in a long time. All this while they never have a single honest conversation, or are interrupted at the moment they might. Not poorly written but I am just not in the mood for a heroine who throws “how dare you” around as if it was “hello”.
One of my favorite Anne Gracie books and I snapped it right up when I found it finally available digitally at Amazon earlier tonight.

The one good thing about Jack and Kate’s obstinate natures was that it created a situation that was ripe for sharp, witty bantering.
I love it each time I re-read it. After a hundred or so pages of this my love affair came to an end and it became a bit of chore to slog my way to the end which is a shame because it had such promise.
I really wish I hadn’t. Luckily our house gradie always full of them. Also, the story ran a little too long. Family legend has it that I used to spend hours playing in the sand pit, with a dog on either side of me and Rocka the horse leaning over me, his head just touching my shoulder, while I told them stories.
In my opinion, the book could have used a little more dialog, especially of the non-combative type. Call me a sap, but I loved it from the first read, years ago.

There are some stellar moments in the gallajt, but I did have a hard time swallowing the heroine’s backstory. No one will want me I’ll stay unmarried forever” blah blah blah. Jack Carstairs has been scarred and lamed from war, has been jilted by his fiance, and disowned and disinherited by his father In fact, some unfortunate things happened to her during that time which make her believe that she is daif and have made her prefer a reclusive life away from society as well.
I couldn’t quite suspend my skepticism on the amnesia story line, but it is fiction after all! Little does she know how her life is intertwined with what has happened to Jack.
Kate is fun, kind and you can’t help but admire her. When Jack’s grandmother, who was godmother to Gallwnt mother, hears of her plight and comes to whisk her away, Kate resists, only to find herself thoroughly tricked and kidnapped by the old lady. Her loneliness touched me, not as neediness but as deeply moved sympathy.
The character were fine, although I didn’t think galoant was a lot character development. They fight like cats and dogs, but also have some ga,lant tender and sweet moments. Gracie is definitely one of my “must buy” authors. Sounds worse than it is. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
These two lonely hearts cannot help but fall in love, though neither believes they are good enough for the other.
