it was ok
bookshelves: kiss-me-now-you-fool

The issues the heroine had were unbelievable in general, especially so given the historical setting. She goes from being completely submissive (to an ogre of a father) to rejecting marraige (to someone she loves) because she wants to assert herself and be free. The pacing, dialogue and character development were also 2 star-worthy in my opinion.

I read that this is early work of this recommended author so maybe I will still try some of her later works, even though I was underwhelmed by this story.

Rane The web series at times are a hard pill to take, to read MB at her best I recommend Dark Angel/Lord Carew's Bride A Summer to Remember Simply Love

Beanbag Love Definitely one of her worst. This was actually the first Mary Balogh I read and I'm really surprised I picked up another.

Christine Ah! sorry about that Karen!
Thanks for the recommendations Rane, I've "to-read"ed them. :)
