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.
