Description of book "Forever Ruined"

Benjamin McAllister's past was riddled with intrigue, war, and death. It was no place for a woman, such comforts as marriage, family and love were not meant to be his but one woman changed all of that for him.

Clara Bentley had won Benjamin McAllister's heart but the prize came with a price. He loves her, he married her but he cannot be with her. His responsibilities to King and Crown are too great, leaving her often alone.

Once she left him hoping he would follow. Hoping to get his attention, but his world caught up to hers and left her altered (see From the Ashes). Now she's leaving for a completely different reason.

Will they find their way back to one another, or will they both remain... Forever Ruined.

ZARA, Working on it.

ZARA 21.05.2020, 11:08:45

That was a really beautiful chapter. I am happy that Commander Redgrave and Clara had another talk, following the previous one and parted on good ends. The way Redgrave rises above his own pain and uplifts Clara is really admirable. I love that a more empowered Clara is leaving for this new adventure that will unfold. Thank you Ruechari for this amazing update :D

So much adventure has been experienced in reading this story which is of rare set up, am so anxious to know what further adventure would this bring to Clara, Lord Fi,tton and Sturgis, what about Commander Redgrave, will he now belong to the past?

ZARA 13.05.2020, 12:47:17

Thank you for this beautiful update. I feel sorry for Commander Redgrave but the help and support he's brought to Clara despite this hurting him knowing she won't be his, this man deserves a huge respect! I hope she finds the cure she seeks there and even if she doesn't, I hope she surmounts her insecurities and realise that she is no less of a woman and Benjamin does really love her. I hope they are able to cure Sturgis as well. I love how they've been taking care of and been there for each other. Ahh!! Love this story!

ZARA, Thank you so much!

ZARA 02.05.2020, 18:26:24

I thought she went away because she felt unloved and not cared for since Benjamin was always working but the real reason caused my heart to pound and my eyes to sting.. These two really love each other. I hope fate brings these two back to their other half :')
Thank you for such a beautiful update.

Vijay Kerji 29.11.2019, 19:26:11

The story began well, but things can be more straightforward instead of rambling around a bit. Real names can replace the pronouns in the second half, but these are my options. I am interested in reading more!

The last comment in the thread:

Ruechari 29.11.2019, 20:07:48

Vijay Kerji, The rambling is actually intentional because of a historical characteristic of Queen Charlotte. She would ramble when she was upset or nervous. That's why even Benjamin states he wishes she would get to her point. I will, however, look into your other suggestions... thank you.
