  • Horrible!!

    This book was so awful!! Not only was it one of the most poorly written I have ever come across (note to author, NO ONE EVER SAID 'TONGUE ACTION' IN THE 19TH CENTURY!!) It's also one of the most infuriating! All the characters agree that the heroine is smart and kind and wonderful, yet they all tell her she's just being stubborn and that they know what's best for her when she's forced into a marriage that she doesn't want, and is extremely vocal about not wanting, to simply get her out of their hair. And their pitch for this dude is that he won't be a dick to her and may even have a sense of humor.......WHAT A DREAMBOAT!!! I lost any sympathy for the "hero" when he went along with this horrendous premise. The advice he's given is, "just kiss her. Even though she's SCREAMING 'no', what she really means is yes. You as a man, just need to show her that." I'm paraphrasing, but that is what he is told and GOES ALONG WITH!! That is a level of gross I just don't tolerate from authors who live in THIS CENTURY!!!

    This book was awful. Very little to recommend about the characters. Both were pretty whiney and weak. Terrible ending!! Save your $$!!!

  • Loved it!

    By Beedieye
    I love this book. I would it several times over.
  • Mostly good, but too much religion

    By jodir
    This story was mostly good, but the religious overtones and references smacked too much like an agenda to me. All the unmarried men are virgins? This was a distracting plot point for me.
  • Honestly like it.

    By hello.worlld
    Great read for the price. The storyline was not to quick but not slow. Must read for those who like romance books.
  • Love it!
