THE HEROINE.....SHE COULD BE THE POSTER PIC FOR. """"""NO COMMON SENSE""""""'. IF I HAD BEEN THE
HERO, I WOULD HAVE LEFT HER TO HER OWN DEVICES.
The heroine was incredibly annoying and 'too stupid to live'. As part of her characterization, she is written as a stubborn person, well known for doing the opposite of what someone tells her. As a result, she puts herself in danger, even when she knows someone is trying to kill her. The hero tries to protect her and to make her aware of precautions she needs to take, but she either reacts out of anger or brattiness, and thwarts his efforts. She simply refuses to believe that certain characters could be involved in a plot against her, no matter how the hero tries to warn her.
Every time I would get lost in my enjoyment of the story, the heroine would say or do something stupid and contrary, pulling me out of the moment. I would get back into the story, and then it would happen again. It was very frustrating.
This was a great traditional regency, apart from the heroine's moments of stupidity. The author stayed fairly close to the social norms, there were no glaring anachronisms, no bad language and no sex scenes. This was a very clean read.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes this genre and can get past the heroine's characterization. I like it well enough that I have kept it, despite my criticisms of the heroine.
