Top Customer Reviews
The story set in Mid-Western America 1800s in a miles from no where town where if a man sees a woman he wants he can just take her, short of clubbing her over the head and dragging her away by the hair, and in this story it pretty much happened that way.
The heroine Penelope makes a stop on stage coach into a one horse town and within minutes meets a man who she barely says a handful of words to, who just from a glance and a brief conversation decides that he wants her, and processed to kidnap her on her way out of town, from the time the man abducts Penelope he is verbally and physically abusive towards her.
The rest of the book follows that vain, not giving any mentally sane justification as to why this man Charles has taken Penelope, the only warped explanation he gives her is that a woman should know her place, and it's Charles personal mission to teach Penelope her place. The rest of the book was a study in Stockholm Syndrome, where at the end of it all no matter how much the author tried to pretty it up into a love story, a line from the heroine to another character sums up the sentiment of the whole story "You either die in it, or you live in it".
I'm all for an alpha male on a story and even a little dubious consent, but I just felt that no one in this story actually ended up happy accept for the hero, and I just couldn't bring myself to care.
I normally leave off with a "Happy Reading" at the end of a review, but I need a cookie and wine break, yes that's a thing, in order to sooth me after reading this book.
The synopsis is better written than the book. There are several typos and better sentence editing is needed. The print is much larger than most kindle books (except for the two other books that I have read by this author). The book is quite short. I read it in less than 90 minutes.
