    This will be a strange review, because I will essentially be reviewing this book AND the next book in this series The Duke and I Why do you ask I m doing such a weird thing Well read on and you ll understand Either by some mystic force, or I was simply the unlucky one but I ended up reading both these books back to back You know, as one does when they re in one series And imagine my surprise when I realized I was basically read the same book.Twice I kid you not Just bear with me for the next minute or so, and you ll see as well Basic Plot The book both of them FYI chart out a second chance romance between young almost lovers, who were tragically separately at a tender age due to external circumstances and hold a good deal of contempt of each other Exhibit no.1 In The Marquess and I, Willow was a young girl falling in love with Alasdair, her brother s best friend And guess what Alasdair had come to realize that the little Willow who followed him and her brother everywhere was turning into a beautiful girl nay woman They shared a sweet relationship until it was suddenly broken by scheming schemers and both were left with a broken heart Exhibit no 2 In The Duke and I, Emma and Elliot has been friends since she was a young girl and he yes, that s right you guessed it her brother s best friend The shy, plump Emma had fallen in love with Elliot and quite predictably he had a tendre for her as well But of course, extrenal forces in the form of an accident and the heroine s fear of her being a burden tore them apart Leaving them both with bruised hearts If you remove the names, and like 15% of the plot the books are legit the same In Marquess and I, Willow was forced to reject Alasdair s suit because her father forced her to do so and she was only a girl of 16 Alasdair of course hates her for rejecting him Then years later they meet and the spark is instant, but this time the twist is in the fact that Willow has been blinded after an injury and is extremely nervous and feels her self confidence slipping She s been deemed as an embarrasement by her parents and instructed to not let her lack of sight bring down their name Of course, basis this she feels no one would truly be happy with her as a wife In Duke and I, Emma s love for Elliot was squashed because he was a mere doctor s son, and she the daughter of a peer Then she suffers a terrible accident and is left with a mangled leg, and suffers from deep pain caused by the accident She must walk with the help of the cane, and Elliot in his dashing save the heroine move asks her to marry him many times Of course, by this time Emma s self confidence is somewhere on the floor and she s certain he ll resent her in no time once he realizes how inconvenient her injuries are Both hero and heroine s love each other from their youth, both are separated by stupid plot points, both heroine s have some or the other disability designed to give them low self esteem, both hero s propose and are rejected multilple times Both books start with a seduction in the first 20% and both end quite the same with the hero finally convincing the heroine she will never be a burden to him, and that he ll never resent her for her infirmity The thing is, I couldn t tell you without looking which couple is from which book Apart from all of this, the books are too short for me to really feel the depth of the emotion the characters feel I liked the first book better I think, not that they re much different The writing is good enough, but it doesn t pull you in, which considering stories like this are right up my alley it should have You re basically just told that they love each other and are to believe it, with no corraborating evidence to see that love build I still can t get over the fact that both stories are basically the same but sigh I ll give this book 2.5 5 And the next book too.

    The first book in the Forever Yours series is a second chance romancing focusing on Lady Willow Arlington and Alasdair Morley The two met when Willow was 16 and Alasdair Morley 20 or 21 and fell in love, but due to Alasdair being the third son, Willow s father a Duke and her mother refused the match and persuaded her to reject Alasdair Years later, when they once again, things are drastically different for the two Willow has been blinded in an accident and Alasdair is now the Marquess of Westcliffe, due to the deaths of his farther and brothers The estate he has inherited is in dire straits and he needs to marry for money, but when he sees Willow again, despite the bitterness he feels, he finds himself still drawn to her, but Willow s farther has removed her dowry, thus Alasdair s mother pleads with him to keep away but he cannot.Both characters are likable, their insecurities and love for each other overall nicely written, but the book felt a tad too short, a little could have added depth and potentially a rich sense of emotional depth to the story I wasn t overly keen on the scene at the view spoiler wedding, where nerves hit Willow and she runs, the drama just wasn t needed and felt a tad silly hide spoiler
