Another entertaining romp which involved no engagement of my brain whatsoever. You can always rely on BC to write a tale with a rather silly plot and entertainingly self absorbed characters. Whats not to like?

This is the kind of book you sometimes need when you just don't want to use your brain. It's perfect for it. You can totally see the plot points coming from a mile away. From the first page you can pretty much tell how the story ends (HINT: it involves an altar) and who is going to be there. It's entirely formulaic and lacks depth of either plot or character. Everyone in this book is basically a trope. Yet I like it when I absolutely need to take a break. This is where this type of book shines. ...more

Fenella = doormat with possible masochistic tendencies and a creepy co-dependent streak. Her love interest = entitled man-child with no sense or care or charm. I'm taking the discarded suitor and running away to Gretna Green, thanks.

its a nice book. however i was kind of getting irritated with the hero for his strange money making methods.and the way he could flirt even though he proclaimed to be in love.

nevertheless it was a good story, a good read.
