Historical Romance, 1999
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. Yes, the heroine of Powderflash is probably a clear shoo-in for the New Millennium Annual Bimbo Awards. Hurrah and congratulations to Miss Garnet Perry.
I can’t finish this e-book. Is that unprofessional of me? Oh dear. Who says I’m a professional?
Well, this is what I know so far. Miss Garnet Perry comes to Sydney Cove from England to marry a Mr Landis. She doesn’t love him of course. She bumps into a Mr Jeremiah Gold, a self-made gruff man of wealth of his own making. That dumb woman sees his rough appearance and decides that he’s a ruffian and unworthy of her regard.
The dearest husband turns out to be a moron under the control of evil Mom-in-law who also holds the purse strings of the family. Miss Bimbo is expected to provide an heir and nothing more. Guess what? Her hubby’s pathetic in bed and offers her to his buddies for surrogate impregnation (don’t laugh). Garnet refuses, so he sells her off like a slave. Mr Gold buys her out of pity, and she spends the next few pages scorning and insulting him because he looks like a ruffian.
At this point I discard this silly story out of my mind.
I have better things to do.
