õ Read ↠´ Scoundrel's Honor by Rosemary Rogers ✓ I love books with Russians AND sultans So very yummy Emma Linley Kirov hrs mencari adiknya, Anya, yg diduga dijual dan dibawa ke Inggris Emma terpaksa minta bantuan pada Dimitri Tipova, Tsar Pengemis, mafia dunia bawah Rusia Dimitri sudah bernafsu pada Emma sejak bertemu, tetapi Emma ini tidak bisa diatur dan selalu membangkang, tidak pernah menuruti perintahnya Dimitri sendiri punya misi lain selain membantu Emma Dia mau membalas dendam pada ayah biologisnya yg menewaskan ibunya, Count Nevskaya.
Emma yg gak sabaran ini akhirnya mendapat bantuan juga dari pihak ketiga, Rajih, Pasha Mesir yg berminat pd dirinya, yg mencurigai para gadis dibawa ke Mesir sbg koleksi harem Sejak kedekatan Emma dgn Rajih ini saya jadi ilfil Karena Emma terkesan, badanku boleh kalian grepe grepe sesuka hati asalkan kau mau membantuku utk mendapatkan adikku kembali Dari segi petualangan, novel ini mengasyikkan Bagaimana tidak, 3 negara eksotik abad 19 yakni Rusia, Inggris dan Mesir dieksploitasi keindahannya oleh author Penjahatnya walau gampang ditebak, masih menyuguhkan action kejar kejaran yg menarik Sayangnya, romance nya oh sangat tidak menggugah Terlepas berbau cinta segitiga, karakter Emma ini berani tapi tolol di mata saya Dia buta tidak melihat cinta menggebu gebu dari Dimitri Dan hingga nyaris ending, matanya tetap rabun pada cinta Dimitri.
Sebaliknya Dimitri digambarkan sbg dark hero, terlahir sbg anak haram count yg bejat, yg menculik dan menghamili ibunya, dan dgn tega membuang mereka tanpa sepeser uang pun Dimitri punya motif kuat utk membalas dendam pd ayahnya Tampaknya di pertengahan cerita, Dimitri nyaris mengambil keputusan bhw usahanya utk balas dendam akan sia sia, hingga datang kejadian yg memaksanya mengambil keputusan yg tepat.
Sekian dulu review saya.
The New York Times Bestselling Author Of Scandalous Deception And Bound By Love Returns With A Seductive New Tale Of Treachery And Temptation originalWhen Her Younger Sister Is Abducted, Strong Willed Emma Linley Kirov Will Make A Deal With The Devil Himself To Rescue Her Devastatingly Handsome, Dimitri Tipova Is A Scoundrel, Seducer And The Only Man Who Can Help Her, Though His Motive Is Cold, Hard Vengeance Emma Dares To Trust Him, But At What Price As Prince Of Saint Petersburg S Underworld, Dimitri Has Wealth, Power, Women Everything But Revenge Against His Nefarious Father Emma Is An Enchanting Means To An End But As Their Dangerous Pursuit Sweeps Them From The Ballrooms Of Russia To The Steamy Streets Of Cairo, His Savage Desire For Her Grows And Leads Him To A Crossroads Between His Dark Obsession And The Promise Of Love 4 StarsSuka sama petualangan mereka, kemistrinya jg dapetlah cuma ending nya berasa agak abrupt aja gitu.
So far I m not impressed It s like she got sucked into formula writing and has lost the passion I usually see between her characters So much of the passion from her earlier books was missing in this one With the rigid point of view rules in force today the writing was almost sterile with the adherence to one point of view per scene.
Ya ampun, saya langsung jatuh cinta sama Rosemary Rogers Emma ini impulsif, nggak sabaran dan kepala batu Dia selalu menyalahkan Dimitri tiap mereka gagal melacak jejak Anya, berpikir kalau Dimitri selalu mengulur waktu dan nggak sigap bergerak, sambil ngerayu dia tentu saja Padahal tanpa bantuan Dimitri, itupun berkat perantara Gerrick, mana bisa dia ngelacak Anya sampai sejauh itu Lalu apa, dia juga, kok langsung mau begitu saja diangkut Rajih ke Kairo buat nyari Anya Sama Dimitri ngomel ngomel tapi ya ngarep digerayangi terus, denialnya ini salah satu yang bikin gemes juga , eh sama Rajih langsung ho oh Padahal, lhaa ternyata Rajih kan sama aja Memburu sindikat traficking manusia itu nggak kayak ngejar maling ayam, yang bisa gasrak gusruk Mesti pakai strategi, ya to Dengan latar belakang masa lalu sekelam itu, saya bisa kok, memahami kenapa grand skenario Dimitri adalah ingin menghancurkan ayahnya, bukan sekadar membantu menyelamatkan adik Emma Jadi di sini saya sering ngerasa sebel sama tuduhan Emma kalau Dimitri lebih fokus ke ambisinya itu, dan menganggap nyelametin adiknya cuma prioritas kesekian Dan serius ya, kepala batunya Emma ini bener bener bikin kesel, makanya saya justru ketawa puas dengan twist yang terjadi setelah dia menemukan Anya Eat that, Linley Kirov Dan Dimitri Pitova Heuheuheu, dia sudah saya nobatkan jadi bajingan kesayangan saya sampai beberapa waktu ke depan, sampai saya bisa menemukan bajingan lain yang lebih menggoda dari pada dia.
Emma, akan melakukan apapun demi menyelamatkan sang adik, yang mengaku pergi untuk menjadi artis bersama bangsawan yang menginap di penginapannya Kenyataannya, sang adik akan dijual dalam perdagangan manusia dan akan menjadi budak bagi nafsu para lelaki Penyelamatan tersebut membawa Emma bertemu Dimitri, dan harus bekerja sama dengannya.
Ceritanya lumayan kompleks, banyak karakter karakter pembantu yang lumayan vital, perdagangan manusia lintas negara, dan orang orang berkuasa yang akan melakukan apapun demi mendapatkan keinginannya, dan mempertahankan jabatannya.
Quite complicated for a romance genre, it s rare but good What I found unbelievable is Emma met not just one but three powerful, arrogant, handsome, rich beyond words men, and the three men actually liked her I don t see any chemistry between Emma and Dimitri or Emma and Rajih so I am not convince of their triangle love story It is obvious that Rajih was created just as an obstacle for Dimitri to have Emma and will have his own story, so I think he is an unnecessary character for this story

2 A lot was packed into this 432 pg romance from Russia to London to Cairo I m trying to figure out why I wasn t bowled over by this interesting, well written story I think it stemmed from Emma, the heroine desperate to find her kidnapped sister I liked her but not all of her character traits seemed to be consistent.
