I love to read, and am not even too picky about what I read, but this book was just too much. The only reason I finished it is because I actually liked Dillon and his father, Roderick. All of the other characters were ridiculous and annoying, so I just did my best to ignore them.

First of all, the editor should be fired and then sued for publishing a book that was edited by a five year old. A few of my favorite mistakes (that had me pulling my hair out):
- "She was so board.."
- "Her mother reached into her ridicule to pull out coins.." (Ridicule? Perhaps she meant RETICULE??!)
- "He quoted the bible.." (This is a Christian book! You'd think that they'd know it's Bible. And this happened at least five times)
- "He hsd (intentional misspelling) stayed in this marriage.."
- "The brandy tasted worst than usual.."
- "He knew to much.."
- "It burned a hole in her conscious.." (Ahem. Conscience maybe? Also happened 3-4 times..)
I could go on and on.

Secondly, the phrases that the author uses do not match the time period at all. For example:
- "Darling, I redecorated the living room." "Is it already finished? Let's go check it out."
- The main character's enemy thinks, "Instead of making people turn against her, they were all now jumping on the love Caitlin wagon."
- "Darling, I missed you like crazy.."

Thirdly, I cannot count how many times periods, commas, and apostrophes were left out. Following the plot became difficult and boring, and halfway through the book I found myself wishing I had a red pen to make all the necessary corrections, as I was anticipating more mistakes with each page I turned.

Due to circumstances beyond her control, Irish born Caitlin Gallagher is forced to marry Dillon Cade, though Caitlin doesn't know why her father makes these demands. She kicks up quite a fuss, but marries poor Dillon anyway, all the while vowing that theirs will be a marriage in name only. Eventually, her vow falls to the wayside, and she invites her husband into her bed. In the meantime, the town trollop (who'd had it in mind to wed Dillon herself) starts plotting to destroy the marriage between Dillon and Caitlin. Add to this Dillon's evil stepmother who would like to have him for herself (after she rids herself of her current husband, of course), and it seems like everyone is out to break them apart, from Thomas Jefferson on down.

Unfortunately the plot is weak, unconvincing, and very fractured. I had trouble believing that Catlin would have such a strong distaste for marrying a man simply because he was English. If he was truly the enemy, why did her father insist they marry? There was no true black moment for the couple--though they went through trials and setbacks. There was no time when I caught my breath and thought, "This is it. After this, their love won't be able to survive."And both names seem way too modern for a book set in the 18th century. All that aside, Caitlin was nothing more than a spoiled brat who needed a spanking--in the worst way. She was disrespectful and mean even though Dillon afforded her everything. Her treatment of him emasculated him to the point where I thought he was going to break and toss her out on her behind. I would have applauded him if he'd had.

However when Caitlin's vow not to consummate her marriage with Dillon is forgotten, the tone of the book changes and becomes more tolerable. But given the lack of believable plot, even the change in Caitlin is not enough to make the book shine.

I really did enjoy the storyline for this book, but the spelling, grammar, and punctuation were horrendous!! The story takes place in the beginnings of America, with fascinating tidbits of the political environment, the fashion, housekeeping, and life in general at the end of the 18th century. However, if the story line was not so cute, I would have stopped reading it in the middle of the book and asked for my money back! At one point, the hero of the story claims that he is not some "neanderthal" that just grabs women by the hair and carries them home to cook for them. The term "Neanderthal" was not ever coined until nearly 60 years later! While most of the spelling errors were similar sounding mistakes (i.e. braking for breaking), the most appalling mistake was "ligament" for "legitimate". If you can get past the spelling and grammar errors, however, this is a great story!

The Unwilling Bride

Again here I am reading a romance novel. Again I must say that this is not my genre of choice and again I must say that I was floored. This novel was very well written and the author keeps you interested until the very last word. I was impressed by this author and I must say that if you are looking for a good romance novel that is not gonna have you washing out your eyes then this is the book for you. There are some Christian undertones but nothing that shall endanger the enjoyment of Christian or non-Christian readers. So why not take a chance and get some good reading done.
