Book: Private Arrangements


  1. *g* She only has one other book, Delicious, thus far. I gave this book a wavering B because the writing was excellent. The grade wavers because outside of the writing, I found the characters rather flashy, and the "present day" interactions between Gigi and Camden was too contrived and pat. However, I do admire Sherry Thomas' talent, and am glad to see new historical writers entering the genre and shaking things up.

  2. This sounds like a very interesting book. But first I have to know what the “obnoxious request” for her freedom is?

  3. It’s not really a spoiler, as Sherry’s query is posted on her blog, but Camden wants Gigi to give him an heir before divorcing her.

  4. Haha well, it works for the characters and the time period, Zoe. (Evangeline, correct me if I’m wrong.) I mean, back then, the husband had every right to ask for an heir, in fact, it was expected that the wife give an heir before the couple agreed to have affairs.

    The interesting thing is that at one point, the main characters were very much in love, and Gigi probably wanted to give Camden an heir.

  5. hahaha I know, I know. I just can’t imagine how women coped in a time before childbirth and pregnancy were a choice.

  6. lol Zoe. That’s why you write contemporary paranormals. I like the conflicts produced by those social constraints.

  7. hehehe probably so. There is Zero chance of pregnancy with a vampire or incubus. Zero. :P
