At the smell of a bitch it would chase around the garden with its ears flat and its tail between its legs, whining, trying to hide. One can punish a dog, it seems to me, for an offence like chewing a slipper … But desire is another story.
The kind of ethics that Lurie advocates has to do with respecting and preserving a certain quality of life. It has to do with the inalienable rights of every living being to embrace the fullness of its existence in the world. It is unjust that a dog is beaten for following its instincts, because there is no way that such a creature can step outside its own skin, or beyond its own material existence, to understand why it is being punished.
Although Lurie and the dog are both driven by desire, the similarities between the two stop here. Unlike the dog, Lurie has the ability to exercise self-control and judgement.
His seduction of Melanie is a self-conscious, premeditated act of sexual possession that involves the conjoined forces of lust and reason, calculation and desire. The point of the dog story is not that Lurie is exempted from responsibility; rather, it brings to light his thoughts on the matter.
It is clear from his reading of the incident that he is critical of systematic processes of accountability and punishment where compassion is missing.
His hatred of needless cruelty is well illustrated in a scene where he moves two doomed sheep, tethered to a desolate patch of land, to more lustrous pastures so that they can enjoy the earth in comfort, however temporarily. His embrace, pleasure and ultimate respect for the carnal, sensate world of matter is epicurean in spirit because it is not just about living, but living well.
Lurie is an unlikely hero whose disgrace, world-weariness and sexual penchant for young women, preferably younger than his daughter, protect the novel from any false notes of sentimentality. To lighten the burden of Bev Shaw? For that it would be enough to drop off the bags at the dump and drive away.
For the sake of the dogs?
But the dogs are dead … For himself, then. For his idea of the world, a world in which men do not use shovels to beat corpses into a more convenient shape for processing. Three black men trick their way into her home, rape her, brutalize Lurie, kill their guard dogs, and relieve them of money and possessions. For some time afterwards, Lucy cannot speak of her rape—it is, simply, too traumatic to translate into a common idiom. A side-line.
I think they do rape. They have marked me. What if … what if that is the price one has to pay for staying on? Perhaps that is how they look at it; perhaps that is how I should look at it too.
They see me as owing something. They see themselves as debt collectors, tax collectors. Why should I be allowed to live here without paying? That she is able to do this with men who clearly care nothing for her or her life—who have caused her unimaginable Suzie Gibson 7 suffering—is extraordinary.
Indeed, her compassion for those who deserve it least is wholly bewildering. Yet his recent liaison with Melanie Isaacs does not also enter his consciousness, perhaps being too close to the bone, too painful, to confront. While the men for their part, drank up her fear, revelled in it, did all they could to hurt her, to menace her, to heighten her terror.
Call your dogs! They said to her. Go on, call your dogs!

No dogs? The story takes time to develop in this one, but it's so very romantic, and I just loved every minute of it. Consider the following: I so enjoyed this one - it really showed how Jordan developed as a writer as I really do think this final offering was one of her finest novels to date, with some lovely romantic writing and a truly believeable heroine the hero isn't that believeable, but let's face it, it's a Mills and Boon; he's not going to be, is he?
Louise says of him at one point: I've got to say, going into Tesco has that effect on me, and it's not always a pleasant feeling!
However, I loved this book. It really was worth the wait and I'm glad I saved it for a time when I could really concentrate on it and enjoy it i. Definitely recommended for all Penny Jordan fans everywhere who will, like me, really miss her work.
Jan 22, Hannah Fielding rated it it was amazing. But first she must get permission from the local patronne, Caesar, which opens a whole can of worms, given that the last time she saw Caesar she was a rebellious teenager who slept with him, was rejected and then disappeared to secretly bear his child. As the story unfolds, we see Louise and Caesar trying to untangle the past, their secrets and their sense of duty to family and villagers, all the while wrestling with their ongoing attraction to each other.
Abundantly passionate, beautifully written, this book drew me in from the first paragraph. My favourite scene in the book is the one in which the two lovers finally shed their defences and come together. In all, a great romantic read and a wonderful testament to this prolific and much-loved writer. Agak sebal dengan paragraf-paragrafnya.
Dan terlalu banyak pergumulan hati yang dibahas berulang-ulang. It's ok, jika hanya satu atau dua kali, tapi kalau sepanjang buku?! Astaga, aku sampai menskip semua bagian itu dan membaca hanya bagian yang dikasi tanda petik yang artinya adalah bagian-bagian dialog saja , itu pun aku bisa menangkap apa yang dimaksud oleh si penulis koq.
Hanya bagian klimaks ending saja yang membuatku tidak memberikan satu bintang. Yah, kalau klimaksn Agak sebal dengan paragraf-paragrafnya. Yah, kalau klimaksnya tidak begitu, sudah aku throw entah di mana dah. Kali ini lebih dapat feel dan chemistry-nya. Paragraf tetap nembok, tapi aku bertahan membaca hampir semuanya di bagian awal, dan aku suka dengan endingnya, gemes-gemesin gimana gitu.
Aku merubah bintang dari 2 menjadi 3 karena baca ulang ini. May 21, Amy Summers rated it liked it. Slow, confusing start.
Took a couple chapters for me to really get engaged in the story. Genuinely one of the worst Harlequins I've ever read.
This book has it all. Ok, this story is very great. The story that tell you about how to apologize and forgive, how to give the sincere love, how to give thoughtfulness, how to accept the past and how to keep moving forward.
You must read this novel! Mar 25, Ash rated it really liked it.
Mar 10, T. I just re-read this, not with the memory of the last moments of Ms. Jordan's life in mind, and it is more of a 3. Here's my original review: I purchased then read this book for two reasons. The first being because Penny Jordan is the author. I have been reading her books since my childhood and still cart some old, old, old Harlequin Presents with me whenever I move.
The second reason was because I had read somewhere that Ms. Jordan had passed away and this was her last book. S I just re-read this, not with the memory of the last moments of Ms. Sadly, she crossed on December 31, Having warned you that I have read many of her Harlequins, I guess I was expecting the same old, same old. I was partially correct in that it seemed to go with the general Harlequin 'template'. You know, girl loves boy, loses boy, they meet again years later amongst pain and heartbreak then they try again.
OK, that was the nutshell. I almost stopped reading during the first chapters but continued on having faith in Ms.
Jordan's writing skills. Our heroine, Louise, is generally a girl who has been humiliated and emotionally abused by the people she loved growing up. Our hero, Caesar is a young duke in Sicily. He had been orphaned at the age of six, and was then raised to know how to look at 'his people'. Not himself, really, but the 'show' of all things duke-wise. He listened to the wrong people and broke her heart, not realizing he was breaking his own. I have to admit my initial reaction to the book bordered on negative.
A Secret Disgrace
As I was preparing to write this, I read more about her life and death. I have to say, reading that she had been fighting cancer for some time before her death and knowing this is her last book, made me look at it in a much kinder view. There is definitely a happy ending. There is also eventual, and gradual, move towards forgiveness. I had guessed at what the surprise ending might be, I was correct, but I think it is a sweet ending to a wonderful author's work.
I will miss Ms. Jordan's works. May she Rest In Eternal Peace. Jun 04, Rhonda rated it really liked it. I have read her books for years.
Thailand’s royal disgrace
She passed away on Dec. She will be missed. Louise Anderson is trying to get her grandparents ashes buried in the graveuard of the church of Santa Maria. It was thier last wish.
Louise has not been back to Santa Maria since 10 years ago she had shamed her family and they were asked to leave thier rental. Her father whos attention she has always tried to get said A Secret Disgrace by Penny Jordan 4 stars It's sad that this is the last Penny Jordan novel. Her father whos attention she has always tried to get said he was done with her.
Her mother too did not want her. They wanted to get rid of her baby which she would not do. Her grandparents welcomed her and helped her. Duke of Falconari Caesar remembered her well and knew she had not forgiven him since she never answered his letters 10 years ago.
Louise was surprised to hear Ceasar had recieved a letter after her grandfather died telling him he was a father and how good a mother was but her son needed a father figure in his life. Caesar asked if it was true? The Duke demanded a DNA test and if she tried to leave the island he would stop her taking his son. Thier are some love scenes in this book. I like Louise she admitted her mistakes than she got over them and made a good life for her and her son.
Also feel bad about the way certain people treated her. I would like to go back and read the Penny Jordan books that I have missed sometime in the future.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. Aug 31, Nas Dean rated it really liked it. Ceasar Falconari, was the new duke and in his early twenties when he had succumbed to external pressures and didn't stand by the new fun-loving girl in the village. He just had one night of passion but believed others when told that he was not the only one. Louise Anderson had a nine year old son now. She hadn't come back to ask Ceasar anything for herself or her son. She was fiercely protective of her son.
She just came back to this remote Sicilian village to fulfill her grandparent's last wishes. She had to take permission from Ceasar and he was determined to find out the truth about her secret disgrace which had happened ten years earlier.
When he finds out he is the father of Louise's child, would he let her walk away again? And would Louise accept Ceasar's apology now? Isn't he ten years too late? It's a gripping story of second chances, past secrets and unexpected attractions. Jul 11, Hsiau Wei rated it liked it Shelves: This book tell the story of Louise who went back to Sicily to seek the consent from Caesar to bury her grandparent's ashes just like what they have wish for.
This is because of the history between them and to make thing worse, she was accompany by their son, whom Caesar has no knowledge about.
Due to the scandal that erupted resulted her family's name being tarnished, Louise wishes only for a smooth burial for her grandparent but Caesar's presence make it harder for her to be composed.
This is t This book tell the story of Louise who went back to Sicily to seek the consent from Caesar to bury her grandparent's ashes just like what they have wish for. This is the last book by the author whom has passed away late last year and indeed this book contained lotsa of mystery pertaining to Louise's history which lead to the tarnishment from the village where their grandparent's stayed since young.
However, i find it rather annoying when there are rather too many 'implied" questions and answers that the author serve as carrot for the reader to anticipate and guess. There are a few scene where i couldnt help but shed a tear or two. Overall, i enjoyed reader this book. Jun 28, Cleffairy Cleffairy rated it liked it.
