This is it. This is the book I was waiting for. I've been trying to get into it, but something just isn't working. I'm going to have to call this one a DNF. I hate doing that. There seems to be a good story here, and it appears to be descent writing, but I'm struggling to get through it. For whatever reason, I'm just not connecting with the characters and that is making the whole experience somewhat painful. I keep putting the book down. When I do try to read it, it goes right back down after a page.

I'm sure this is a good novel, but unfortunately it fell victim to that bit of me that just isn't happy with historicals.

I was curious about this one but I had a strange feeling I wouldn't enjoy it. The premise sounded familiar anyway.

It is a very familiar story. Girl gets jilted twice, the man who is charged with being her guardian suddenly realizes he loves her....blah, blah, blah. Don't get me wrong. I love romances...even the formulaic ones, but this one just wasn't working for me. Maybe you'd have better luck with it?

The cover is pretty though.... :)
I've had books that I couldn't finish either. It happens occasionally. Just give it away to someone else and find one worth your time!

I read books they way other people eat, sleep, or watch movies....voraciously, obsessively, and as often as possible. The reviews, random commentary, and snark in this blog are mine alone. Don't take my word...read the book.
