it was ok
bookshelves: historical-fiction, romance
Read in January, 2012

I guess I'm a sucker for those Kindle daily deals. What a $15 book that's only 99 cents? And I've never heard of the book? I'll buy it anyway. After all, I did read that Robert Browning poem it's based on a couple of times...So it turned out to be something of a torrid and rather graphic Harlequin romance style book, with a higher vocabulary and more scenery. The one good thing about it was that the villain was not one dimensional as he very well could have been. Yet it was so predictable that I could skim large portions of it and miss nothing. Usually when I do some skimming, I have to backtrack at some point - wait, what's going on here, did I miss somehting? Let me go back and see. I never once had to do that with this book. There was nothing to miss, I guess.

booklady I'm not going to give you a test...

Rio (Lynne) Sorry you wasted your 99 cents. If you want a great book on this subject read Elizabeth Loupas' The Second Duchess. 5 star!
