Shades of Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebeccawe have a wealthy, worldly, dominating and arrogant Italian aristo plucking a young, virginal, poor, working class English nurse, on the rebound from a failed love affair with a beautiful, glamorous, but icy and disloyal Contessa. I would have liked it better if the heroine wasn’t so damn stupid and down on herself one of those shy, retiring types who think they are nothing special even as pretty much all the men in the story, including her husband, are fa Shades of Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebeccawe have a wealthy, worldly, dominating and arrogant Italian aristo plucking a young, virginal, poor, working class English nurse, on the rebound from a failed love affair with a beautiful, glamorous, but icy and disloyal Contessa.
I would have liked it better if the heroine wasn’t so damn stupid and down on herself one of those shy, retiring types who think they are nothing special even as pretty much all the men in the story, including her husband, are falling at her feet like love struck fools.
The Great, Big, Terrible Misunderstandings about him pining away for his last love, or having fathered an illegitimate son before he married the heroine, were too clumsy. No one, except for the stupid heroine, could have fallen for these red herrings, so that the resolution of them were tedious and unsatisfying. Not one of my favorite VWs that’s for sure.

He treats her well, he buys her things but the only thing Elvina wants is his love. She is afraid he loves someone else, his beautiful ex girlfriend who married another man. She was a shy, insecure young woman whose doubts and fears were legit. Hero was not cruel at all he was very nice and attentive and I liked his jealousy and possessiveness. View all 3 comments.
Jun 23, Megzy rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this one, it does a good job conveying the emotions of a shy, insecure young married woman. The highlight for me was the scene in the garden, when Elvi met the old Russian ballerina and heard her life story. I really don’t know what everyone is talking about the hero being cruel.
I didn’t find him cruel and I could see right through him from the very start. Maybe I have been reading too many romances with really nasty guys and in comparison to them he seemed tame. Well this was interesting. First off it was an exercise in purple prose. Sort of felt like a gothic romance.
All of the descriptions were florid and the heroine was a wimpy ninny. She is a heroine that few are going to enjoy.
My goodness she leapt quickly and often to conclusions. She saw her husband have a quick word with a local unmarried mother who he had just saved from suicide. She immediately is convinced that he is the baby’s father. She holds on to that through Well this was interesting. She holds on to that throughout the book but never asks him, not even in a round about way. With no particular reason she is convinced he loves yet another OW.
She gets so het up about it that she continually turns him away in bed.
Bride of Lucifer
At least here he doesn’t then force wnspear like in many older HPs. And unlike in newer HPs her lady bits don’t lead her to sleep with him anyway.
She was the master of blowing hot and cold. He basically does everything for her to convince her he loves her except say the actual words and she is just blind to wihspear all. Finally he fesses up and all is well, HEA. This was an interesting read from an historical standpoint.
I liked it as an illustration of changing mores in the romantic fiction genre. At least it wasn’t boring. I read it on my continuing quest to read the first numbered HPs. This was number I’ve got a couple more early VWs so I’m interested to see if they are all written like this. Is this style something she grew out of gradually or was it something she wrote just to try the style out. I’ve read later books by here that weren’t so gothic in feel.

Rodari married Elvi without knowing her. She was a nurse when he met her. When they were married he took her back to Italy and she struggled to find her place with Rodari. I kind of liked this book, it was full of jealousy, honesty and sweet innocent passion in many ways. The characters were likable and the plot which was simplistic was absolutely wonderful!
