I had a few problems with the story. One - lots of bickering early on. I really do not like my hero and heroine to be constantly bickering at each other like 14 year olds.
Heroine acted pretty immature early on, though she did improve a little bit.
There were loose ends. What happened to the starving boy in town? What happened to the butcher? Was he the one that actually poisoned Quinn and Ramsay? Was it Ramsay? Did they ever say?
The scenes jumped around quite a lot without much warning. One minute they are in the stables and next it's two hours later in the tower.
The historical background was wallpaper. Except for the tartan and accents, you'd not know where or when it was set. Actually I thought it was medieval until someone in the story mentioned the 16th century. Really? How can we tell?
I know this is a super popular series, and now this is the second one that I've read that had me eye-rolling and wanting to fast forward to the end.
Do I bother to go on? My gut feeling is no....more
