Gilbert Blood

Giles

Plot Summary: The day after her debutante ball, the MC’s grandfather comes to visit her with Gilbert in tow. Grandfather tells the MC that the Montfell family needs money and security so she has to marry Gilbert. The MC agrees and Gilbert immediately employs her as his secretary. The MC struggles with Gilbert rough attitude but slowly starts developing feeling for her, although she begins to wonder if he isn’t up to something.

What I think of him: Gilbert is cold and very outspoken. As an upstart American capitalist, he is very good at making money, although he does not always go about it in the nicest of way. He has strict business practices but is nicer to his employees than he is to other people. He hates the aristocracy, and even though he goes to great lengths to do things that will open connections with them (such as going to parties, donating to museums, buying and decorating lavish mansions, and marrying the MC), he is also very blunt about his opinion of them. He is very self-reliant and thinks that everyone should be able to take care of themselves; he’s progressive and even employs women while convention still says that well-bred women should stay at home

Charm point: He finds the MC’s idealism and purity irresistible

Quote: “Just be quiet and stay in my arms.” 

Cuddle, kiss, or push down: Be carried by him after being injured or on the way to bed

Would have eloped with:

  • Edward, because he worries about the MC and is always doing things for her

Favorite moments:

  • How Gilbert can tell that the MC is fascinated by his secretary and offers her a job
  • Gilbert carrying the MC and threatens the guy who shoved her
  • The MC saving Gilbert from more beatings
  • The MC insisting on staying with Gilbert in the hospital

Worst moments:

  • Alex is a creep (what else is new)
  • The MC apologizing to Gilbert when she discovers his plot (why?)
  • The MC clings too much to pleasing her grandfather

Worth the price of admission?: I did like this route, Gilbert is interesting and I like how progressive he is.

After the main route (POSSIBLE SPOILERS): None
