I really enjoyed this historical romance. I liked the idea of a strong heroine, travelling on her own, wanting to live a life that is fulfilling.

This is the first time I'm reading this author and I was pleasantly surprised with this touching and heartwarming story. Both, the characters and the plot were well written and the pace was just right, not too fast and not slow.

I truly enjoyed following these characters and finding out what made them tick.

For those of you that enjoy strong, independent heroines and honorable and handsome heroes, this story is perfect for you

And well, this book was also the same to me. It just wasn’t what I wanted at the end of the day. Perhaps when I want romance, I want something else to complete here.

I like it when it has some other theme that the romance wasn’t for the sake of romance. To me, this is where it just fails. It is neither sensual or sexy but doesn’t have any touching moments at all.

As a historical romance, it brings nothing new to the table at all. All the while it doesn’t provide me the entertainment that I wanted
