3.0 out of 5 stars Went downhill, September 26, 2010
This review is from: Then Came You (Gamblers Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I was enjoying this Kleypas quite a bit. The heroine is very engaging and has an interesting past. But then it just went off the deep end for me. I don't understand the point of writing such a strong, intelligent heroine who could be an equal to this capable hero... and then have him saying that she should be spanked! (yuck! like a child?) And carrying her out of a room against her will, humiliating her and treating her not at all like an equal would deserve. It just really killed the romance for me, how he started wanting to be "obeyed" and to manage what she could and couldn't do. That just really didn't work for me, after that kind of set up-- even if this is a Regency, this is a woman who hunts and gambles like a man, with real platonic male friends and a desire be respected and treated like an adult. A heroine like that, I can't see her being happy long term with that sort of marriage. I've liked some of Kleypas' other romances, but this one didn't work for me.
