Summary Outrageous Confessions of Lady Deborah Outrageous Confessions of Lady Deborah Review Ü 109 Marguerite Kaye ¶ 9 Review Accomplice to Elliot Marchmont gentleman ex soldier and notorious London thief This adventurer's expert touch ignites in me a passion so intoxicating that surviving our blistering affair unscathed will be near impossibl. A version of this review also appears at Reading with AnalysisI ll start with the bottom line The Outrageous Confessions of Lady Deborah is a lovely example of character driven writing Marguerite Kaye has created two wonderfully complex characters and she slowly unravels their mysteries for us throughout the various plot points in the book There is action in the book but it is all secondary to the characters and their development individually and together It did strike me as being a trifle folded in with the characters reacting not only to their counterparts actions but also to perceived actions but that inward focus is not in the least unpleasantAt the heart of the novel is Deborah a character who vacillates between strength and vulnerability and who protects herself with an icy prickliness think hedgehog Deborah has issues She had a bad marriage and it left its mark on her psyche Deborah is not without a hefty dose of resourcefulness however and she is able to survive Even though the basic premise of Deborah s character is very similar to other characters that have made me crazy with their insecurity the way Marguerite Kaye handled the situation here is lovely Deborah s issues make sense and are commensurate with her experiences I felt that she worked through her issues at an appropriate pace I didn t want to jump into the book and murder herI really liked Deborah as a character but I think I was biased in her favor I might be the Least Trusting Woman on Earth so I identified with Deborah s inclination to hide behind a wall of reserve to bifurcate her life and do all her living through an assumed persona Other readers may find all that to be annoying or incomprehensible and may wish that Deborah would just get on with it and realize that Elliot is not a bad guyElliot also has issues but he s a lot charming than Deborah He helps to balance some of her prickliness and I particularly enjoyed the way he interacted with his formidable sister He s a thief the charming kind and his heists provide some much needed action and syncopation to the story I really loved Elliot Deborah though she has a dry wit tends to take herself a little too seriously and Elliot helps to keep the book as light as it can beLet s talk about the publisher s blurb When I read it I assumed that the book would be told in the first person it isn t would contain an outrageous confession or two it doesn t and would be somewhat scandalous it isn t It is a very good book but it isn t the book described by its title or blurb When you pick up a book called The Outrageous Confessions of Lady Deborah you might expect it to contain some steamy sex scenes or some confessions of past steamy sex scenes but most of the sex in this book ends abruptly in emotionally induced coitus interuptus Like many women Deborah just doesn t know what to do with a penis and her discovery of herself as a sexual creature and of Elliot s man parts as an extension of him rather than a disembodied manifestation of expectations and judgment is not without its bumps in the road As long as you go into this book expecting it to be the exact opposite of what it tells you it is I think you ll have a fine time reading it Hot Head passion so intoxicating that surviving our blistering affair unscathed will be near impossibl.
