Recommended for: straight-laced Historical Romance fans

I used to read (and enjoy) a lot of historical romance, but I think it may be entirely possible (considering how prolific this author is) that I have read too much urban fantasy and paranormal romance because overall, this story seems like it should have been interesting, however, I just could not get into it. I read it to the "bitter" end, which of course was a very simplistic HEA, but it was not my cup of tea. I didn't really like any of the characters. I thought they were all silly, their POV and concerns were so...uninteresting. And again, this may be because all the books I've read in the past 4 months...someone's LIFE has been at stake, not just someone worrying about being heard or liked or respected. Sigh. The whole "restraint" of the hero was not appealing to me and his final "unleashing" was entirely too tame for me.
