Easy Read, Entertaining.
I would agree with many that this book isn't very thought provoking, but that is not the intent of the novel. Romance novels are supposed to be mindless entertainment that make you think about the possibilities and simplicity of love. It's an easy read and predictable but very entertaining. If you enjoy watching romance movies, Lifetime, Hallmark, etc. you will enjoy this book. Again it's not top notch, but it's a nice distraction that will take you away.
Kept thinking it can't possibly be this bad...
But it really is. The language, mannerisms, and expressions are all wrong for the time period. Clearly the writer didn't bother with pesky research. There's minimal character developed and the dialogue made me roll my eyes. The writer incorporated contemporary slang and expressions into a period piece. 'Nuff said.
Run! Worst Book Ever!
This is a terrible, terrible book. It rambles. It was much too long. The characters are unbelievable and unlikable. The plot is ridiculous. It is supposed to take place in 1899 but, there are so many things out of place, it's shocking. I kept reading hoping that the love story would make it all worthwhile but it was a huge letdown. Even their love scene was horribly disappointing.
I honestly can't believe that she's written so many books. No wonder she had to publish her own books. No one else would.
