DNF when I was 67 % done.
My time is too precious to waste on a boring book. I'm really disappointed. Marrying the Royal Marine
started off very promising--I really liked it. The story kept me interested up to about 30 % and then it started to seriously bore me. The heroine is pale, uptight and…boring. While we're on it, Hugh didn't shine either. Frankly, throughout the story I couldn't find any chemistry between Hugh and Polly. Gosh, how many times did Hugh kiss Polly on her head, huh? There was not one single passionate kiss to be found. Honestly, they behaved like brother and sister. I love mesmerizing dialogue, however, what I got here was a narrative ad nauseam.
I think that's exactly what sealed the deal for me. A boring narrative and not enough dialogue. And of course the lack of passion between H/h. I mean I'm reading a historical romance. Dear Ms. Kelly, when it's labeled romance, then I truly expect a developing romance/relationship between two human beings. Well, onwards…I hope the next one will be better.
