But we don t have a direct conversation between Cassandra and Severin Anyway all information I know,I gathered it together Cassandra is 21,Tom Severin is 33 early thirties Severin was described in devil s daughter as Severin s face was lean and angular, his build lanky and almost rawboned, his complexion librarian pale His eyes were an unevenly distributed mixture of blue and green, so that in strong lighting they appeared to be two entirely different color.I cannot help but imagine him as Tom hiddleston.Little naughty but intense as same time.Severin is the high functioning sociopath as Lisa said earlier in her interviews..he is bloody weathly but he was never allowed inside the upper class circles, which he desperately wants to.so if either not with birth he will acquire it with marriage He is detached from emotions and feel no value to relationshipsif any of his bussiness is hindered by friendship then he would sacrifice that friendship.And there is a segment where West talks how unworthy he is to marry Phoebe, Severin says I have feelings too, but I never let them turn into obstacles If I were in your situation, for example, I would marry the woman I wanted and not worry about what was best for her.Other side, our Cassandra is a romantic soul who longs for loving husband, babies and her own small but happy home.From lisa s interviews 1 What s next for you Lisa I m busy working on what will probably be the final Ravenel novel, featuring Lady Cassandra and Tom Severin I ve been looking forward to writing this for a long time Severin is an antihero Brilliant, charming, massively successful, immoral and so disconnected from his feelings that he s very nearly sociopathic He has only one weakness he is completely fixated on Cassandra He would do anything to have her, even knowing it s impossible As we ve seen in past novels, all Cassandra has ever wanted is a loving husband and children and a cozy home of her own She is domestic, affectionate, sweet and private in nature, and she knows she would never be anything but a trophy to Severin Fate is really going to have to put these two through the wringer if they re ever going to find a happy ending 2 Lisa One last Ravenel novel I m pairing Cassandra with Tom Severin, the railway magnate It s a marriage of convenience plot my favorite in which a heroine, who has always longed for a cozy, happy home with a loving husband and children, ends up marrying an obscenely wealthy man who regards her as a trophy Severin is fascinated by Cassandra and is drawn to her beauty, grace and kindness, but he has no intention of falling in love with her He s a tricky, treacherous, hyper intelligent antihero who discovers his wife has a core of inner strength he never expected.Waiting for their story only complaint it s in 2020 Update read.4 StarsI liked the book and I loved Cassandra and Tom Severin,but somehow it didn t end up in my my fav shelf.Something was missingthe aww factor I felt when I read devil in spring.I think I expected too much from Tom.my fault.Tom is 31 not 33 as I guessed..the way Cass and Tom fell in love was beautiful..the dancing scene..my fav moment was when Tom kissed Cass at Dr Gibson s hospital.it was unexpected just like Cassandra in book I was too pleasantly surprised.I didn t think Tom would be into PDA..haha.Cassandra was everything she promised us.calm,loyal and gorgeous beyond words.The epilogue is not of after years.so I guess there is chance we will meet them again fingers crossed (((FREE BOOK))) ⇯ Chasing Cassandra ☞ Everything has a priceRailway magnate Tom Severin is wealthy and powerful enough to satisfy any desire as soon as it arises Anything or anyone is his for the asking It should be simple to find the perfect wife and from his first glimpse of Lady Cassandra Ravenel, he s determined to have her But the beautiful and quick witted Cassandra is equally determined to marry for love the one thing he can t giveEverything except herSeverin is the most compelling and attractive man Cassandra has ever met, even if his heart is frozen But she has no interest in living in the fast paced world of a ruthless man who always plays to winWhen a newfound enemy nearly destroys Cassandra s reputation, Severin seizes the opportunity he s been waiting for As always, he gets what he wants or does he There s one lesson Tom Severin has yet to learn from his new bride Never underestimate a RavenelThe chase for Cassandra s hand may be over But the chase for her heart has only just begun I received an ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest

in Marrying Winterborne But in upper society, she s actually the opposite of overlooked She s in fact a belle of the ball A curvy one, based on the words used to describe her figure, and the only reason I bring this up is to publicly shame the Avon design team for misrepresenting Cassandra on the cover I mean, if they were able to find a blonde curvy model for Sarah MacLean s book, I don t see why they couldn t do it for this book Cover aside, I enjoyed the final Ravenel book for the most part Cassandra is a nice breath of fresh air among all the modern historical romance heroines who are born businesswomen I enjoyed her character, although there was one scene where I think she came across as a bit too presumptuous But she s a lovable heroine for the most part she s not an airhead as many presume her to be and she is ambitious in her own way As lovely as Cassandra is, Tom Severin is undoubtedly the highlight of this book There are actually a few hints that imply that Severin could be on the autism spectrum Tom and Cassandra are utterly adorable as a couple Their romance ison the sweet and romantic side There s definitely steam, but it s not as sexy as the previous books in the series I am so in love with these two as a couple I love how Tom seesthan just her beauty and how Cassandra likes him just the way he is They really see each other I had a smile on my face every time they spent time together Tom and Cassandra are probably my second favourite couple in The Ravenel series and their epilogue was icing on the cake.I really wish I could give this book a higher rating because I adore Tom and Cassandra so much But for a book titled Chasing Cassandra, there s not a lot of chasing happening I know a few readers are expecting this to be like Harry and Poppy s book, but it s not similar at all Tom actually gives up on chasing Cassandra after the first couple of chapters I didn t fault him for it because he had his reasons But what I love about Tom is that ultimately, he doesn t give up on Cassandra and he fights for her That being said, the pacing of this book sagged in the middle because Tom and Cassandra don t interact for a good chunk of the story There were also a lot of time jumps, which affected the pacing evenHalfway through the book, Cassandra and Tom lead their own separate lives, which annoyed me because I just wanted them to spend time together Cassandra s part of the story was a bit boring, but Tom s part of the story was interesting The pacing threw me off somebecause Tom and Cassandra s marriage of convenience doesn t even happen until the very end of the book What I m trying to say is that the blurb is kind of misleading and it s not the first time that has happened in this series Finally, the last thing that was disappointing is the lack of development concerning Tom s family There definitely would have been enough room to develop this significant aspect of Tom s character if the book was much better paced This would have also added a lotsubstance to the story because family is a key theme in this book.While I enjoyed Chasing Cassandra and Tom and Cassandra as protagonists, this book doesn t really conclude the series overall The previous heroes and heroines do appear in the book, but most of them were really annoying to be honest I won t go into too much detail, but let s just say that I didn t like the way Devon and West treated Tom However, just like Tom fights for Cassandra, Cassandra defends him in the face of her family s disapproval And that s why I love these two so much They re not bland characters who just give up They fight for each other They don t need other characters to bring them together so they can have their HEA They decide for themselves It takes them some time to make that final leap, but when they finally do it, it s beautiful.And yes, this is partly me throwing shade at a particular book in this series where the hero and heroine don t even bother to work for their HEA Final thoughts on The Ravenel series overall I love reading series that revolve around a family, with each sibling getting their own HEA The Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas is my favourite family series of all time, closely followed by The Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn Unfortunately, The Ravenel series doesn t even come close to being a favourite I did enjoy most of the books in this series, but family doesn t feel like a central theme here After finishing Chasing Cassandra, I took some time to think about the family dynamic in this series and I came to the conclusion that there is a lack of harmony in the Ravenel family For example, Ethan hasn t even properly adapted to the family and Cassandra was completely forgotten until it was time for her own HEA Those are just a few examples I think the few characters that remain constant throughout the series are Devon, Kathleen, Winterborne, and Garrett.I almost didn t read one of the books in this series, but I thought it would be disloyal of me to skip a new Kleypas book Even though that book ended up being my least favourite, I m glad I pushed through and read it In case you re interested, here are my reviews for the previous

how he feels about Cassandra Cassandra knows that she has always wanted to marry for love and she feels that for Tom but she can see that he struggles with how he feels and she refuses to settle I love how they come together and how Tom comes to realize his feelings for Cassandra Ms Kleypas is a genius with her storytelling and characterization The couple spends a lot of time talking and getting to know one another, which I love in a romance It was definitely a feel good, laugh out loud at times story and I didn t want it to end I read it in one sitting I highly recommend and I cannot wait until the next book by Lisa Kleypas I gave the first book in this series a scathing review and one star I absolutely hated the heroine with the burning rage of a thousand suns I wanted to build a time machine just to travel back there and bitch slap a bitch.You know, sane thoughts.But, it was Lisa Kleypas She s written some of my favorite characters as well, so I trudged on I m so glad I did

and Tom the hero If you want to understand everything about Tom right now, here it is in the quote that makes women sighThis comes after Cassandra expresses concern about having gained some weight She was about to reach for a little fancy cake cuz ya know those rich bastards ate little fancy cakes all day made by the blood, sweat, and tears of the peasants in the kitchen but stopped herself and said how people would think badly of her unless she loses a few.TomYour body isn t an ornament designed for other people s pleasure It belongs to you alone You are magnificent just as you are Whether you lose weight or gain , you ll still be magnificent Have a cake if you want one Plus, Tom starts reading novels and gives us delightful reviews throughout the book They are super insightful I ll only give you one quote because I don t want to ruin the fun for youmost of them are pointless, like the one about the French bread thief who violated his parole Les Miserables Yes It took Victor Hugo fourteen hundred pages to say, Never let your daughter marry a radical French law student Which everyone already knowsWait Hold everything A man who gives funny book reviews and is offering cake It s like Jilly krytonite I officially love Tom and he is joining my book boyfriend harem.What the hell is Nick Cage doing there Does he have to be in everything Also, that welcome isn t very welcoming Jilly needs to sort out her harem.If you have read the series, you will enjoy this one It had glimpses of most of the other couples and West was funny All the things you need 5 STARS He kissed her for all the midnights and mornings they would never share He kissed her with a tenderness he would never be able to express in words, and felt her response in his blood, as if her sweetness had sunk into his marrowThis book This book right here is exactly why I love historical romance If you re not a reader of the genre, this book will make a converter out of you It was sweet, quirky, funny, and oh so swoony Lisa Kleypas can simply do no wrong for me, and 5 STARS He kissed her for all the midnights and mornings they would never share He kissed her with a tenderness he would never be able to express

this book will make a converter out of you It was sweet, quirky, funny, and oh so swoony Lisa Kleypas can simply do no wrong for me, and this series only continues to get better and better with each new installment But I really think this was my favorite in the series so far My wife expects me to join her upstairs for a nap How could a grown man sleep in the middle of the day Why would you even want to I wasn t planning to sleep, Devon said curtly Oh Well, I would like to have my own wife to nap with In fact, I d like some good, hard napping on a regular basisWhat if you took Sheldon from Big Bang Theory and made him into a quirky, dreamy and handsome historical romance character That s precisely what Tom was I simply don t have a better way to describe his unique personality Tom is very black and white He doesn t believe in messy entanglements like love and romance and feelings He s ridiculously smart, incredibly so His whip smart mind and ability to learn to do practically anything just by seeing or reading about it has allowed him to be the rich man that he is Having come from nothing, Tom is one of the richest men now and known for his ruthless negotiations and no holds barred when it comes to doing business.The second he lays his eyes on Cassandra, he knows he wants her A marriage is the logical next step for a man like him But a lady like Cassandra hasn t been holding out with marriage for as long as she has for no reason She wants a marriage formed from love and devotion, and that s just one thing that Tom isn t willing to give He believes himself incapable of it Feelings are inconvenient, Tom said It s why I decided to limit mine to fiveI cannot even begin to describe to you just how satisfying it was watching Tom unwittingly fall for Cassandra as the story progressed I loved his quirky and unique personality almost as much as I loved Cassandra s softness and loving nature She s the perfect balance to a man as cold and aloof as Tom But Tom isn t quite as cold as he believes himself to be And thetime he spends with the beautiful Cassandra, thethat becomes evident.The story is perfectly paced and wonderfully crafted It draws you in from the very first page and keeps you riveted until the very end A beautiful, swoony, and memorable romance between two polar opposites that couldn t beperfect together I absolutely loved this

that really doesn t involve much of a plot at all if you think about it, I greatly enjoyed this The Revenels series has beenmiss than hit for me, with book 2 Marrying Winterborne really being the only one I would recommend, but now I can say this one makes the cut too If you have read Kleypas Hathaways series my personal favorite you might be expectingof a Poppy Harry situation based on this book s blurb where the hero finagles his way into marrying the heroine For a book that really doesn t involve much of a plot at all if you think about it, I greatly enjoyed this The Revenels series has beenmiss than hit for me, with book 2 Marrying Winterborne really being the only one I would recommend, but now I can say this one makes the cut too If you have read Kleypas Hathaways series my personal favorite you might be expectingof a Poppy Harry situation based on this book s blurb where the hero finagles his way into marrying the heroine but he then still has to win over her affections However, the blurb is completely misleading and really this romance is almost nothing like that at all.Also, when you start reading this book you might initially be horrified by how quickly the hero falls in love lust with the heroine It happens immediately upon meeting her, and I wanted to in turn immediately put the book down because it was so off putting I am happy to tell you that despite how awkward that first scene is, the couple actually does develop a relationship in a believable way and it doesn t involve insta love at all Thankfully OH Onething the hero of this book is described in a way that seemingly might be interpreted as him being on the autism spectrum it s noted early on by one character that he doesn t look people in the eyes, he himself thinks he only has a set number of emotions, he has a hard time seeing the big picture in fictional and in real life relationships, he either doesn t understand or simply ignores some societal rules standards And yet it also seems like the author perhaps changed her mind or decided to scale it back during editing because the vast majority of the time the hero is described in a way where he has no quirks at all and is even given a backstory to help explain away some of his emotional distancing of others So I am not sure what to make of his character, but take from that what you will.And now I feel like I nitpicked this book to death, but really I did enjoy it which was a pleasant surprise because the new releases of some of my other favorite historical romance novel authors lately have all been huge disappointments 1 30 20
