Mr. Impossible
Carsington Brothers #2

Loretta Chase
Historical Romance
Published in 2006

H/h - Rupert Carsington/Daphne Pembroke
Setting: Egypt/England, 1821.

Read in Nov, 2010.
My rating:

Another of my Loretta Chase all-time fav, amazing book with an adorable hero and a spirited heroine... Some random thoughts.

This book is of the 4th brother, Rupert's. Well, first few chps were slow, I like anything Egypt in it bt there were things I couldn't understand and ... let's just say I hated the plots of Albania (in The Lion's Daughter) but gradually it grew on me, so is Egypt. I'm finding the book more interesting by the chps.

Daphne is a bumpy ride, her mood swings are sometimes ... I don't know, confusing ... Having a little trouble connecting with her, so far I like her. Then again, marrying a man three times your age can do that to people!

Rupert is a jem to read lolz! All his 'thinking and seeing her naked' is just killing me, I laughed a lot, I love men with amazing humor like Rupert or Vere or Basil ... I love him, I can say that. Here's what we know about Rupert and why he's called 'Mr. Impossible'. :D
In the month and a half since the Earl of Hargate’s fourth son had arrived in Egypt, he had broken twenty-three separate laws and been jailed nine times. For what Mr. Carsington had cost the (England) consulate in fines and bribes, Mr. Salt (His Majesty's consul general) might have dismantled and shipped to England one of the smaller temples on the island of Philae.
He now knew exactly why Lord Hargate had sent his twenty-nine-year-old offspring to Egypt. It was not, as his lordship had written, “to assist the consul general in his services on behalf of the nation.”
It was to saddle someone else with the responsibility and expense.

Gog? Magog?? Marigold??? Harmione????? Doing 'it' in a smelly, ancient Egyptian tomb, not once but twice??? Ohhh, Rupert, I believe I shall swoon! You take my breath away ... Ummmm ... Rupert is really a jem, a babe! I loveeeee him.

I like Daphne, she isn't as boring as she thinks, I can connect with her vulnarabilities now, can understand I believe.

Need I say I loved the love scenes? The book is getting more and more interesting! :)

What can I say? I've actually thought of a lot of things while finishing it last night, all of which I've forgotten now. There were more than one scene that stole my heart and made me laugh, cry or sigh. This book, specially one of the scenes where Daphne was taken hostage and Rupert snicks in to see her at night, reminded me of Princess by Gaelen Foley to some extent (funnily enough the hero's name was Darius, here Rupert's youngest bro's name is the same lolz), there were some elements so intense and genuine between Daphne and Rupert. 5 stars no doubt *sigh*!

So it's not the youngest but the 2nd Carsington brother (Benedict, ....., Alastair, Rupert, Darius ... if I'm correct) got no book, have to find out why, which I think I will when I read the other books of the series. :/

PS: The 2nd bro is Geoffrey, now I know his name. The info came out after finishing the series, hahaha. :p
