At the flower-bedecked altar, the velcet touch of their hands ignited an all-consuming passion. Gavin Montgomery looked deep into her golden eyes and burned with desire for her Humiliated and alone in nude strange castle, Judith resolved to hate this husband who took her body, but rejected her love But destiny held another fate for Deverqux The Velvet Promise is about the Montgomery brothers, 4 in total, and I can see from the way they were characterized I will want to read all of their stories.
Gavin the oldest Montgomery, he f. Gavin the oldest Montgomery, he feels he is in love with the manipulative Alice, daughter of a poor drunken baron. She wants to marry for money, which the Montgomery’s are lacking due to some past political turmoil, so she strings along Gavin for the good hard sex and marries an abusive Earl for his lands and riches.
Gavin then marries Judith a wealthy heiress who he thinks is going to be hideous, but once he sees her he is awestruck by her beauty. Judith is pleasantly surprised by her handsome groom as well. Alice is green with envy and plots and destroys over and over to ruin Gavin and Judith happiness. Lots of deceit and jealousy throughout the book with many cruel villains and lots of conflicts to overcome.
I loved both the H and h, their chemistry was sizzling, they couldn’t get enough of each other even when they hated one another. There was also several secondary romances throughout the book that were a positive bonus. Already started Highland Velvet- great so far!

He fails to recognize the evil in the bitch and totally mistreats the heroine, his wife, deverajx of said slut. The heroine just wants his love and approval, which he constantly denies. She is physically and psychologically abused. She ends up pregnant and risks her life and the life of her unborn child to save him, going to the house of som This book was too heavy for me!!!
She ends up pregnant and risks her life and the life of her unborn child to save him, going to the house of some psycho weirdo that holds promsie hostage. The hero thinks that the deveaux and the weirdo are lovers and that the child she velfet carrying is not his. He treats her badly, once again but as he desires her body, that’s velvef. Then, I don’t know why, he decides deveeaux he loves his wife and doesn’t care about the blonde slut. Blonde slut plots to destroy the poor prokise and she ends up losing her unborn child!
At this point, I’m completely out of my mind! Were I the heroine, I would happily impale the sucker and beat the blonde bitch until her face was goo!

Slaps and rapes the heroine on their wedding night Strike two: Hero is stupid enough to be drunk and edveraux in bed with Alice a trap set up by herheroine sees it and that causes her to lose their child.
After that, nothing Gavin says or does could redeem him in my eyes. Of course, I am leaving out a lot of details — smaller, minor ones where he treats Judith like shit until the end of the book. These kind of bodice evlvet may have appealed to me in the past, but now this book was simply atrocious to read.
The series as a whole is fantastic; it’s just too bad that in order to read the other brothers’ books, you need to suffer through Gavin’s assholery.
I want to make it clear that I rarely give out 1 star ratings. When I do, it means the book struck a deep nerve in me, pissed me off to the infinite degree, and makes me believe that no amount of groveling or sweet talk can redeem a character. Thanks Camaro for re-reading this book with me!! View all 48 comments. Jul 03, Megzy rated it did not like it Shelves: I refuse to finish reading ANY story that involves rape, abuse, or involuntary sexual servitude by the “so called hero” as an erotic act.
Even if you have a physical reaction to the abuse, the emotional damage that results is something you never get over. You do not fall in love with your rapist, and you certainly cannot have a healthy relationship with your rapist, and suggesting otherwise is demeaning to sexual abuse oromise AND irresponsible. I would have loved this book had I not wanted to murder the hero.
Gavin Montgomery should be tied to two tons of bricks and dropped off a very high cliff. View all 19 comments. Okay Jue upped this from 3 to 4 stars, because I did really like it and it’s much better than a lot of the 3 star books I have out there. It kept me engaged.
I didn’t skim, etc. I have a tendency to do this when a character or plot point irks me so bad I can’t see the bigger picture. Maybe I should wait a week before writing my reviews. However, I do so love to rant when I’m in the deeveraux Part of me feels like I should give it a 4, because the writing velvrt certainly far superior to other things I’ve given 3’s to. But in the last few chapters the hero lost the book that extra gold star.
From some of the reviews I’ve read, I expected to have problems with the hero because he was violent. Actually in the world of medieval romance, I didn’t find him too bad.
Granted, not a great start to a relationship, but he didn’t seem to get any sadistic enjoyment from hurting her. After that he wants her willing and doesn’t rape or hit her again. He acts like a class A jerk a lot of the time because he’s very jealous Judith is extremely beautiful and every man who sees her wants her.
That’s rather par for the course though in many romances. My problem was his attitude when it came to that deveraud ex-lover of his that reveraux but him could see through. It was because of that witch that their wedding night went awry. He was thrilled when he saw how beautiful Judith was and they were both making googly eyes at each other until Alice the ex turns up and cries crocodile tears while attempting a fake suicide. Judith witnesses this and is understandably not happy to hear her brand new husband swearing undying love to another woman on their wedding day.
Gavin handles this by slapping Judith for daring to be angry and say something unkind about the sweet homewrecker Alice. Then he ends up raping Judith that night because she won’t just ‘get over it already’ and go back to being the warm, attentive wife she was before she witnessed that scene with Alice. He reminded me more of a spoiled, petulant child than a true alpha hero.
Plus, he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. Gavin never actually cheats with Lady Alice there is a kiss, which deveaux initiatedbut he keeps her on a pedestal as this vision of how a real lady should behave. He does quickly realize he desires Judith more than he ever desired Alice. Thankfully, he doesn’t seem to really pine after her either or I’d have given up.
I don’t think he ever loved Alice to begin with. He’s all about Judith from day one.
It’s “Lady” Alice who continues to seek him out. Problem is, he never seems to get it that deveruax trying to cause trouble in his marriage and is the 1 reason the two of them are often at odds. He always blames Judith for being unreasonable, shrewish, and jealous.

He thinks she should have compassion for Alice since she had to go through the horrible devastation of losing him: P Dude really likes the idea that this woman is so hopelessly in love with him that she’ll got to crazy lengths to cause trouble. His ego was only rivaled by his stupidity.
Up to the very last chapter, he still couldn’t believe that gentle, demure Alice would actually try to harm his wife.
