I get what you are saying...it's a time honored tradition in Romancelandia to have the hero hold back information for the heroine's own good. I thought his holding back was way too self serving, as in, please don't find out that I was a royal jerk to you and didn't have the balls to actually discuss any of my concerns...blech.
I didn't much care for the heroine, either, to be honest. I was able to give her a little leeway after being held captive for a year, though, so that kind of mitigated the wimpy/ whiny aspects of her character.
I really liked the secondary characters and the whole family dynamics. I thought the writing was well done, especially since I hated the H and didn't care for the h and still liked the book. That said, I still haven't picked up Garrett's story due to the reviews, and the fact that the second book didn't thrill me, and he was by far my favorite character in Darkest Hour.
