I found this story to be endlessly frustrating. I nearly stopped several times.
First of all, I found both characters to have personalities I couldn't quite grasp. Roxanne's moods frequently changed, but I think she was mostly bitter because Charles had somehow, for some reason, spurned her in the past and because her brother sold the family estate to Charles without informing Roxanne about it first. Likewise, I also found that the writing style constantly changed and was inconsistent. It was if

This book had what could have been a good plot. The character painted for the girl was good but, the character was not kept too, she'd kept changing into a stupid /simpering miss and the crying scene in the middle was totally out of character. . The chaperone was no friend at all and should have been shot. The only good character was Te grandmother. The hero was detestable from start to finish, by the middle of the book I was skim reading the pages and got to the point where I just wanted to kil ...more

I enjoyed this book more perhaps than the star rating I have given it. My only criticism is that there isn't quite as much conflict as there needs to be. Right at the end we do find out a reason for the hero's reluctance to love and wed the heroine, but there's not enough preparation for the explanation and I'm not quite sure about her motivation in changing her mind about him. Good but not excellent.

I found this an okay book. I tried to like the heroine and although she wasn't too bad, I found her a bit dim and not too much to my liking. She had Charles so much in love with her, and still she wasn't happy because he wasn't able to say the words. Sometimes words aren't as important as actions and although the ending was fairly nice, it was a bit too twee.
