Her hand gripped tightly in his, he pulled her away from the stairs and down the hall. He paused in front of his room. Then he dropped her hand and pushed her to the wall. Bemused, she watched as he left her. She was grateful for his kind words. Intensely so. He’d listened to her without judgement, responded with sensitivity and generosity. Just as he always did.

I'm on a roll with reading really amazing regency stories these days. The latest was this new one from Deb Marlowe. I've only read one other book of hers and if I remember correctly gave it 5 stars. Tall, Dark and Disreputable is the usual guy and girl story but with a added flair. Even the growing up together was not original but it was well done. What story can be original these days. The mysterious stranger was easy to figure out even before the Countess revealed his identity but still it was an interesting counterpoint and added something interesting to ponder. The character development was superb. I had a hard time liking Mateo, really wandering seafarers need to stop at some point. And my heart truly bled for Portia when all her sadness spilled out, her disappointments with the men in her life (well maybe her father wasn't a true disappointment). Her brothers seemed like heartless toads. Did they even have any sibling love for her. And the cad of a husband. Well, mixed up families are the bedrock of good drama and making hard choices.

I have a few hundred other books to read but eventually I'll get around to another Deb Marlowe book.

If you are looking for a fun read, this one is well worth the blunt.

From the back of the book:

Portia Tofton has always yearned for brooding Mateo Cardea. His dark good-looks filled her girlish dreams -- dreams that were cruelly shattered when Mateo rejected her hand in marriage. Now Portia's home has been gambled away, and Mateo is the only man she can turn to. This time, however, she has in her possession something he wants -- and she finds herself striking a deal with the devil himself!

This book is a beautiful love story between two very strong characters - Mateo and Portia. The love story itself moves along at the proper rate so that it does seem believeable. Both of their fathers have died leaving them each with major personal dilemmas. Mateo's father has left the family's shipping company to Portia. Why - no one knows. Portia's father was supposed to have left her home, Stenbrooke, in her care instead of the usual way that a husband receives all the wife's possesions upon marriage, but somehow he hadn't done that. Her husband didn't care about the place at all so he gambled and lost it to a stranger who was threatening to take it from her immediately. The husband has died in a scandal-filled way, too. Mateo and Portia have a past. Their fathers were best friends after a very unusual meeting. It seems that the fathers both had been having an affair with a renowned courtesan when she learned she was pregnant. She had no idea which man was the father. The two men - finding out about the other - started fighting and both were arrested and taken to jail. In jail they became friends but upon release neither could find any trace of the courtesan. They continue to look for her while both married and had children. Portia was always tagging along with her brothers and Mateo. The brothers always treated her as a child and a burden while Mateo was always her friend. When they were old enough, the fathers decided to force them to marry each other. Portia had always had a crush on Mateo and would have gone through with it, but Mateo would have nothing to do with it. He always had a mind of his own, fighting his father at every turn. He refused which deeply hurt Portia. Now the two must join forces to salvage the things that mean the most to them. The journey they take brings them closer and closer to the truth -- about their lives and their futures.

I loved both of these characters. Mateo is a man with character and strength and a wandering nature but a caring heart. Portia has learned to fight for what she wants so she appears to be a pillar of strength but she's not. Inside she questions everything. Why is she always being rejected - she asks herself. And then there's Mateo - the man that rejected her first and hurt her the most. Can she trust him to help her? Will he hurt her again? It's quite a journey they take and the ending comes as quite a surprise for the characters in the book as well as the reader.

I like it when characters are reunited in a romance. These two are childhood friends and though Portia had strong feelings for Mateo, their fathers tried to push a marriage at the wrong time and he rejected her. They are pulled together again years later when Mateo's company is left mysteriously to Portia. He comes back and finds that she is in trouble too, needing help to save the estate her dead husband gambled away. They set out to help each other and end up solving a mystery along the way as well as falling in love. Neither wants to keep the other from their dream, however, and they separate. But then they find that each is willing to give up their own goal in order to be together. I really liked both of these characters. Their romance was sweet and passionate too. Their journey is fun and suspenseful and the surprise ending is romantic.
