    1. Good grief. This was justI don't even know. Excuse me while I lick my wounds. A LADY AWAKENED; or, MAULED BY TEH FEELZRTHA: I am prim & proper & devoid of emotion. I have successfully smothered Feelz since I was a child. Feelz are good for nothing. Feelz have no place in life. LAWYER: So, hey. There's a problem with your husband's willRTHA: It had better not demand FeelzWYER: No, it's demanding your departure from this house. MARTHA: Oh, that's right. My marriage sucked from day one, but [...]

    2. 4.5 starsDebut"I understand you to have just proposed to engage me as your whore." He gave one last cough. "Is that correct?"Disapproval thinned her lips again. "The better analogy is to a stud animal. My concern is only with the issue. I have no expectation of pleasure."For Martha Russell her ten month marriage was both unfulfilling and unfruitful. Without an heir her estate will be given over to her late husband's brother, a man whose past crimes against servants has gone unpunished but not fo [...]

    3. My mind kept wandering. It did not hold my interest. I did not enjoy the rigid heroine with no emotional interactionsORY BRIEF:Martha did not marry for love. She married to avoid being dependent on her brother. Her husband died ten months later from a horse accident. She learns that her brother-in-law James will inherit the estate and that he molested female servants when he lived there 16 years ago. She believes it is her duty to keep James away from the estate in order to protect the female wo [...]

    4. ★ Thanks to Jill for recommending this début novel. I closed the book with a deeply satisfied sigh, but at first I totally disliked the heroine. It's not to everyone's taste.A Lady Awakened is book 1 of the Blackshear Family series. The writing style is witty and light (I chuckled several times), balanced by sad, painful, or poignant sections. The plot includes several heartwarming story lines. The romance includes a LOT of sex, progressing from cold, quick sex to blast-furnace love scenes. [...]

    5. Reading this made me realize that one of my favorite things to happen in a historical romance is for the main characters to be forced together in an unusual way that unexpectedly fosters true intimacy. In A Lady Awakened, what initially brings Theo and Martha together is sex -- unwanted, unpleasant sex. Martha, a proper lady to her very core, feels forced to rent her feckless neighbor Theo’s services as a stud so that she can quickly produce an heir, and save her late husband’s estate from g [...]

    6. 4.5! I've been hearing this author mentioned a lot lately, and now I know why. This historical romance is easily on par with some of the best authors of this genre - Balogh, Quinn, Kleypasc.I think the one thing I enjoyed most about this story is how I got to see the romance evolve from a cold and simple business association to a deeply warm and passionate friendship all the way to a heart stopping love. Both characters evolve emotionally as well, when they realize the circumstances of which the [...]

    7. I don't think I've ever read a romance novel like this, which should be a recommendation in itself, seeing as so many of them follow one of the "standard" plots. You know the sort of thing - hero and heroine hate each other on sight but gradually fall in love; hero/heroine has to marry money to restore the family fortunes and gradually fall in love, etc.The gradual falling in love bit DOES happen, but it's done in such an original manner. The heroine is a widow who wants desperately to remain in [...]

    8. Nothing Traditional About Thisok maybe a few thingsLook, let me start by saying, there was NOTHING about either the hero or heroine that made me swoon. Never. Ok, there was that one scenebut back to the reviewI cannot say enough about this book. For once, we get a romance that has sex that's well, so not perfect. And a relationship that's well, so not perfect. I don't even know where to begin other than to say, this ain't yo mamma's regency romance. Hero - meh, the name. I can't get over it. Mr. [...]

    9. I wanted to love it but didn't :( I felt a disconnect with the heroine for most of the book, and I'm not sure what it was that held me back from her. She's a bit introverted, socially awkward, straight-laced and frumpy, and I tend to like that type of heroine, especially when she's paired with the quintessential rake. And I did like watching her sort of come out of her shell, I just think it took her too long to do so. By the time she's personable, the book is ending, and I felt like I didn't ge [...]

    10. Historical romance A Lady Awakened breaks ground in a genre infamously frivolous and milkshake frothy (thank you, Georgette Heyer). Cecilia Grant injects maturity into Heyer's legacy- that sounds envelope-stuffing boring. Don't picture a sober, didactic tale. Grant writes subtle humor and surprising heat, often together at once, but she doesn't idolize the idle aristocrat, the party-hopping, tea-sipping, walking in-your-face to anyone who's had to work for a living. You wouldn't know that straig [...]

    11. This book has the novelty of having two likable people, full of goodwill, who both act in a mature way, and fall in love with each other. I actually have a lot of good thoughts for it because of that. It’s also well written.On the other hand though, I thought it was kind of dull. The basic story is about a young widow, Martha, who will be left with little money if she does not have a son. Her late husband has left the house and estate to his lecherous brother-in-law who is known for pouncing o [...]

    12. In my idle hours, and in my less idle ones, I spend more time than is reasonable pondering the following questions: what’s my favourite romance novel? If I was sent to a desert island and could only take one with me, which would it be? The answer usually changes with my mood. But my God, Cecilia Grant’s magnificent ‘A Lady Awakened’ wins out very, very frequently. Because, to me, it is perfection. When people roll their eyes on finding out I read romance and are all: ‘bodice rippers! [...]

    13. I must admit, this book is one of the weirdest I've read lately. It has the push-all-the-wrong-buttons features, and yet, I loved every bit of it. If you want a different take on Historical Romances, different approaches, this one may be something for you. You're in for a treat.The wrong buttons?- A yuck-worthy plot. Heroine's husband dies, she needs to produce an heir in order to keep the estate, etc. She'll pay hero money for one month of sex. And everything goes eeew But the execution. Oh wow [...]

    14. Review written June 29, 20174 1/2 Stars - A great historical with a bit different touch and feeling. Terrific audio narration as well. A Lady Awakened (a very clever and fitting title) is the first #1 in the HR series Blackshear Family (ones recommended by my friend Sofia) by Cecilia Grant. A romances author new for me. This was a good one — My big applauseI was listening to the 12:39 hours audiobook very well with lot of feeling narrated by Susan Ericksen. Twelve perfect good audiobook listen [...]

    15. A Lady Awakened was my first Cecilia Grant book and most probably my last. To put it bluntly, this was just mediocre at best, and painfully boring at worst.I have three main issues with it:First, the writing style was verbose and confusing. I was surprised to find it reminiscent of the stream of consciousness style of narration, which, for me, would be a very odd style to employ in writing a romance novel. I think this was the first time I encountered this in Romancelandia. I don't know what eff [...]

    16. Here is the wonderful premise of this: A recently widowed Martha Russell will lose her estate and her much valued independence unless she proves she is carrying an heir to her late husband. Only she isn’t. Therefore she needs to get pregnant fast. Enter Theo Mirkwood, an exiled good-for-nothing playboy. Martha decides to strike a deal with him - he is going to fornicate with her every day for a month and she is going to pay him a certain amount of money. It seems like the book will just be a l [...]

    17. This book is certainly unique. I am not quite sure what to think of it. The comparison I keep coming back to is it's the Chevy Chase movie of HR. It started with many awkward funny moments that primarily took place in the bedroom, and I was amused, laughing out loud at times. Then the joke went on too long, and I got bored and annoyed. It probably does not help that I am not a fan of comedy of errors where the MC(s) are almost solely to blame for their misfortune. I have a fairly sizable dislike [...]

    18. I read Cecilia Grant's A Lady Awakened not so much over Christmas as on Christmas, ignoring my partner’s family, the Queen’s speech, and even Toy Story 3 to finish reading it. Because it’s honestly that good. I think it’s unavoidable to make more of the things you read at the end of the year compared to the beginning, but A Lady Awakened simply has to stand has one of the most original, intriguing and tiny-mind-blowing books I read in 2013.The book opens with the heroine, Martha Russell, [...]

    19. It’s not often I get a case of hero pity, but I have a serious case now. Our charming reprobate and all around really nice guy is propositioned by the very recent widow to bed her in order to impregnate her so she can, hopefully, gain control of her husband’s estate. More nice guy evidence: he takes food and gifts to his workers and is horrified and literally sickened when one of the mothers thinks he is there to seduce her slow daughter.It’s an uphill battle as the widow simply lays there [...]

    20. I first saw this one on NPR's 100 Swoon-Worthy Romances list last summer when I was just beginning to read HR. The premise sounded a bit silly to me then, and honestly still did a bit when I started this a few days ago. Martha is made a widow in circumstances that will leave her with hardly anything to live on, forcing her to be dependent on her brother unless she were to produce an heir from her late husband. (Which she already knows to be impossible.) She finds out that her late husband's brot [...]

    21. I enjoyed parts of this, but disliked others. Theo is a man who has been sent to his family's country estate in Sussex to 'reform' in a sense. For the most part, he is unremarkable. I read him as a character who has a serious lack of self-esteem, although he generally puts up a good front of confidence. Martha is a recent widow who cares very deeply about the humanity of all people, which the author portrays in her selfless care and concern for the education and well-being of her servants, tenan [...]

    22. Giveaway win. Looking forward to receiving this book in the mail. I always enjoy the opportunity of discovering a new author.+++++++++++++++3.5 stars. I must say I found the first half of this book slow going. It was hard to connect with the lead characters, especially the heroine. As I neared the mid-way point, the writing flowed and I found myself enjoying the story.I certainly look forward to more from this promising author.

    23. Masterful. Lapidary precision in creating the two main characters. Spare, evocative language, though one must become accustomed to it. Each is profoundly affected by the other in a situation utterly antithetical to anything either would've ever sought under normal circumstances. She's a strictly proper widow who needs a pregnancy pronto to forestall a predatory brother-in-law from inheriting the estate. He's a baronet's heir who is exiled to the country to mend his ways and who considers sex his [...]

    24. Short review: I don't like heroines who're man-haters. Such an obnoxious, skeevy woman!Long review: Someone appears to have watched too much "Whitechapel" and "Downton Abbey" without truly understanding it.The author's voice was so dry and laboriously stuffy I had trouble reading it at all. If that was an attempt at making the heroine unlikeable it was a full success. In addition the staccato, curt sentences mixed with quite peculiar similes and metaphors made for something which came over as pr [...]

    25. It took me a bit to get used to CG's style of writing, but eventually the story caught me. It took me most of the book to warm up to Martha, but loved Theo from the start.

    26. This was Cecilia’s Grant’s debut novel in 2011 and it has to be one of the most unconventional Historical Romances I have read. While the premise bears similarities to other books I have read, it is Ms Grant’s unique voice and wonderfully flawed and interesting characters that make this book exceptional.When Martha Russell’s husband is killed in a riding accident, she knows that, as a childless widow, Seton Park will pass to her late husband’s brother, James Russell. With very little m [...]

    27. Well, I have been wanting to read this book for a long time it seems. First I was drawn to the gorgeous cover (although the modes hair color is wrong and I do believe Ms Grant acknowledged that but its still pretty) then I was drawn to the interesting sounding plot. So when I saw this up on Netgalley I grabbed it and happily dove in. It started off great but then the middle dragged a bit too much for me. Thankfully the ending picked back up and it finished out strong. Here are some of my thought [...]

    28. When you set down on paper the plot to this HR, it doesn't look all that appealing and might even seem offensive to some persons' sensibilities. Newly-widowed Martha Russell wants to retain control of her late husband's estate and can only do so by producing an heir within the appropriate number of months of her first year of mourning. Unfortunately, she was not pregnant when her husband died. What to do? Hire the stud services of newly-arrived neighbor Theo Mirkwood, whose father has exiled him [...]

    29. 4,5 starsHa sido toda una sorpresa y muy agradable. Nuevo, refrescante y sumamente creíble. Me atrevería a decir que sigue la escuela de Judith Ivory y para ser su debut literario francamente me parece brillante.

    30. Much to my surprise, I finished this book and liked it well enough. Praise the Lord I have finally broken out of my 2 stars book phase, however temporarily, we shall see. Ms Grant's style isn't showy. A lot of hints you cannot miss and a clever use of undertone which gives you just enough to appreciate the scene without being overtly obvious. I liked that, especially in the first 40%. Theo's internal dialogue made me literally laughed out loud. Oh what is a man to do when treated like a stud ani [...]
