Apparently Wolfe has some BDSM tendencies, but these are never revealed in this story and the other scenes of the characters coming together got a bit boring. Gin's older brother, Robert, interferes several times throughout this story and it just made Wolfe appear weaker because of it. I know why he believed him, but I just wanted him to put some of his so called knowledge of women to use! After all, he appeared to get around a LOT so surely he would have picked something up.
Gin wasn't much better. I kept wondering what happened to that feisty, childlike woman who played jokes and pranks on Wolfe when they were younger. Yes, she wanted to be a proper noble wife, but I find it hard to believe that she could completely bury her natural tendencies. She had opportunities to enact some of that and when I thought she would at one point, in Wolfe's tent, she didn't!! I also found it hard to believe that Wolfe could bury his BDSM element as well. It would seem that neither of them could truly be themselves in the end. They didn't hold true to their inner selves, and they seemed to change to quickly for other things and were too trusting to boot.
I kept feeling that when Wolfe and Gin would have a conversation where their inner depths would be explored and we would get somewhere, but instead I felt like it was just skimming the surface and I was left wondering how these two could possibly love each other. They hardly spent much time together and those conversations of getting to know each other . . . weren't played out in the pages of this story, at least not for me.
Overall it wasn't a bad story, (I got bored if you must know - but I finished it) but it just felt like it needed to be tightened up and the whole villain thing could have been played out better. This is a medieval story and while some things sounded right for the time other things didn't ring true or make a lot of sense to me. I didn't like the feeling that characters would just pop in and out w/ no rhyme or reason. These characters were more like a plot device that would quickly be discarded once they had served their purpose w/ no explanation for their disappearance and I found that a bit frustrating as I wanted some resolution for some of these characters.
