This book started out sounding like something I would love - a romance novel with a medieval setting that wasn't somewhere on the Scottish border!?! Historically accurate details! (I think).
The main characters however felt really flat to me. The plots David has created for himself were really confusing, and seemed more involved than could be expressed in a story that's supposed to focus on two lovebirds. In fact, romance seemed really half-hearted. She likes him because he makes her feel all sexy and he acts more noble than she thought a merchant could. He likes her because she's pretty and stays out of his way mostly. I found myself liking the sidekicks way more than the protagonists.
