Connie Mason ☆ 9 SUMMARYAying power I m iving it a D for effort Redheadedgirl I m a huge Connie Mason fan but this cheating hero was just too disgusting at times Heroine deserved better DNF on page 314 Just can t et into this book The story is too ridiculous without being fun This book came out in the Bodice Ripper era of books And none of these books have aged well What was acceptable in the 80 s and 90 s is just not considered romantic now This one is not is just not considered romantic now This one is not of Connie
Mason S That Ageds that aged I suggest Black Knight if you are looking for a ood read from this author I have to mention this because it drives me crazy Why can t the Kindle covers simply be the orgeous over the top covers from the first printing Those mass paperback covers are amazing The Photoshop covers for Kindle are really really bad The plot of My Lady Vixen has a few tropes I m not the biggest fan of My interest isn t instantly piued about sea heroes like pirates or captains and I don t like heroes who have double identities either but My Lady Vixen is a reat read I enjoyed it as much as I did because Mason did fun and new things with the revenge abduction story and the double identity story that I haven t read before Revenge is of a meet cute than the actual story of the plotAdam Foxworth is out to avenge the death of his father by kidnapping the daughter of his nemesis Alexa Ashley and hightailing them both to his castle for you know what I expected the vengeance theme to carry the action of the narrative through but we uickly move #on from this with Adam and Alexa s marriage In fact Adam barely # from this with Adam and Alexa s marriage In fact Adam barely he had a lifelong vendetta against Alexa s father for the majority of the story hereinafter and even during the abduction Mason makes it clear that both are falling in love with each other It resurfaces as part of the Big Misunderstanding at the end of the story I m so impressed by that move I love that I ve read a few revenge stories where the plot revolves around this and this runs out of steam far sooner than you might think Alexa beats Adam at his own Aryan Idols game by taking on a superhero disguise of her own the American rebel and female match to the Fox as the Vixen The Vixen has taught me a lot of things one of which is to fight for the right to live as I Rivateering ship she succumbed to Adam's masterful seduction only to learn she had been nothing but a pawn in hisame of revengeThe Vixen Driven by despair Alexa made a new name for he.
