This is an outstanding historical romance debut. The characters were believable, complex, unique (‘ugly,’ big, low-born rough hero/curvy, clever, unapologetic, sexually experienced heroine) with compelling personalities. The plot was riveting and paced perfectly, and the development of the main couple’s relationship was filled with sizzling sexual tension that just built and built until paroxysm of the mind! Heh. No sappy love-making either—it was mostly RAWR! and desperate! and rough, with small moments of tender appreciation.
World of mental health in the 1800s was not too much horror to bear, while still being realistic.
Highly recommended.
