BOOK HEARTTHROB PROFILE: CORPORAL SAMUEL THORNE FROM A LADY BY MIDNIGHT
How are you guys doing so far? I hope you guys are doing good. Sorry for disappearing for a while. I just need to take a break from blogging and writing. I just had a terrible nervous breakdown last week due to overthinking about my future and past. I need to learn to live in the present, relax a little bit, take things easy, and be grateful. Uhuh...
Syukur Alhamdulillah, I'm ok now and back with another book heartthrob profile post ^_^ For this month's book heartthrob profile, I'm going to share my analysis of Corporal Samuel Thorne with you guys. He's the love interest in Tessa Dare's A Lady By Midnight. Now let's get started...
CORPORAL SAMUEL THORNE PROFILE
NAME: Corporal Samuel Thorne
AGE: 29/30 years old
OCCUPATION: Corporal/ Militia commander
HIS ROLE IN THE STORY: He was the love interest of the female protagonist, Kate Taylor
HIS GOALS: Corporal Thorne wanted Kate to be safe and happy. He wanted the best for her even though he doesn't have any intention to marry her.
Samuel was a cold-hearted rake who have no intention to love anyone and even get married. But Thorne devoted his life to guarding Kate's happiness, and he wanted what was best for her. But at the same time, he was also hiding a secret from her. The secret had something to do with Kate's past and background.
Besides being a cold-hearted rake, Corporal Thorne was also portrayed as a charming and mysterious man by the author. At the beginning of the story, it was quite hard for me to understand Corporal Thorne's character. I had so many question marks in my head about Corporal Thorne. What were his goals? Why was he so cold and mean to Kate? Did he really love Kate? If Corporal Thorne doesn't love Kate, why was he so devoted to guarding her happiness and safety? Was Kate an important person to him? Who was Corporal Thorne in Kate's past? And what secret was he hiding from her?
I only started to understand Corporal Thorne's character when Tessa Dare revealed his backstory with Kate towards the end of the story. Their backstory was interesting.
HIS PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES
Corporal Thorne was a tall masculine guy. He was handsome and charming. His hair was black. And his eyes were dreamy cold-blue in color. As a militia commander, the author did not portray Corporal Thorne as a gentleman. Corporal Thorne wore his military uniform more than tailored suits. He also had many scars and tattoos on his body.
Corporal Thorne was not from a polite background. He was born and raised in a prostitute's house/brothel. His mother was a prostitute. Corporal Thorne's background gave him a hard life. It also made Corporal Thorne believe that he is not a good guy. That's why he doesn't have an intention to marry Kate even though he actually has feelings for her.
When Thorne was 12 years old, he escaped the brothel and took Kate with him. Kate was only 4 years old at that time. Before Thorne escaped the brothel, he made a promise to Kate's mother (who was also a prostitute and dying) that he will devote himself to guiding Kate's happiness and safety.
MY OVERALL REVIEW OF THE CHARACTER
To be honest, I did not have a crush on Corporal Thorne while I was reading A Lady By Midnight even though he is a very attractive character. To me, Corporal Thorne is a gloomy hero. He is cold and so stubborn. He is not the kind of hero who will easily express his love to his heroine. Corporal Thorne's stubbornness makes me want to kick him in the ass. Ouch!
However, I also have to admit that Corporal Thorne's character makes the story plot alive. His mysterious personality makes me so intrigued to know what happens next in the story and how the story is going to end. Corporal Thorne's mysterious personality also makes me intrigued to know his secret and his connection to Kate. So overall, this character isn't so bad after all ^_^
Ok, so this is my analysis of Corporal Samuel Thorne from A Lady By Midnight. FYI guys, A Lady By Midnight is a historical romance novel written by Tessa Dare. If you're interested to know more about Corporal Samuel Thorne, you need to read A Lady By Midnight. But I have to be honest, that this novel has a lot of romantic sex scenes. So it is not suitable for teenagers under 18.
Ok, this is all for now. Thank you for joining me again in this month's book heartthrob profile episode. Insya-Allah, the book heartthrob profile will be back next month with a brand new book heartthrob. So please don't miss out.
Last but not least, thank you for reading this post. I'll see you guys again in my next post.

Samuel is a hard book to read, figuratively. But from the background, I understand why he is distant yet protective of Kate.ReplyDelete
Samuel is a character. The is titled A Lady By Midnight. Hehehe :PDelete
Great post. I love the character explanations and the images. So cute!ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to know that. I agree we need to practice living the present. It's something I struggled as well.ReplyDelete
I guess most creative people like us suffer from this. We are overthinkers and have wild imaginations. I need to control my thoughts.Delete
Once again, I love your illustrations Fadima! You really give me insight into how you’re viewing a character. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete

I actually fear that book. I have hyped it on my mind way too much I'm too scared to read it now.ReplyDelete
I’m sorry you weren’t feeling great Fadima, but glad you’re doing ok now. It’s good to take a break. This is a great review - they both sound like interesting characters. If he had known her from such a young age, do you think she was more like family to him?ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing.
