I had high hopes for this book, but I couldn’t get through several first chapters. I remember liking it when I was reading it the first time, but now – it didn’t work for me. Maybe I had too much of feisty 17 years old heroines? Maybe the hero and the heroine didn’t click for me? In part I remember being annoyed with the age difference. I have to say that a big age difference in romances is an anti-kink of mine. It would be strange to expect many romances set in the XIX century to have two eighteen year old lovers getting married – or two thirty year olds. But it is not the number itself – it is the attitude that goes with it. Plus, I do prefer to read about older heroines

Miriam Well, and she was so naive, and Richard so avuncular.
