Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* Well? Any good?

I only suggest reading it if you already have it and are a Kinsale fan. I couldn't finish it. The pacing was so slow and I didn't like the heroine. She could best be described as an ice princess. She was cold and callous throughout the whole book. The pace picked up only slightly when the H/h started to show affection for each other, but I didn't believe it. There was no building, it just happened. I also liked the idea of the dialog being in middle English, however when reading it I didn't enjoy it. I think the flow would have been better had it not been written that way. I appreciate the integrity Kinsale wanted to give the story, but it was hard to follow, I had to pay attention and have no distractions. It took a lot longer to get through it than it normally would take me. In the end, I couldn't finish it. I think on a whim I will finish it because I have book 2, Shadowheart. I am more determined to finish this book than any other book. I usually abandon them earlier, but I so wanted to like this book and want to read Kinsale's entire back list.

Yes, I hate when that happens! I am drawn to pretty covers. I like your cover of this one better than mine.
