About the Author
USA Today bestselling author Charis Michaels believes a romance novel is a long, entertaining answer to the question, "So, how did you two meet?" and she loves making up new ways for fictional characters to meet and dislike each other before falling in love instead. She grew up on a peach farm in Texas and gave tours at Disney World in college but now can be found raising her family and writing love stories from her screened-in porch in Northern Virginia.

The book is well written if you analyse the sentences, grammar, descriptive passages etcetera, but the story is an 'up and down' mess and did not flow properly, in my opinion. The character development is cookie cutter and the 'romance' was lacking. (Just because the word kiss is mentioned several times in a sentence, does not a romance make) I couldn't even picture some of the scenes, as they chopped around so much.
There was quarrelsome, snappy, back and forth dialogue between the H/h. Very confusing to say the least, especially when a love scene would appear mid conflict, only to abruptly finish so the argument could continue. Some Historical facts were not accurate. Not a pleasant read at all for me and way too much flowery, descriptive language thrown in at random - which made my mind wander. One example -when Piety arrived in the English countryside:~ (sic 'The very broadness of it captivated in the same moment it dazed. It was no more than a field, really, a pasture - but so vast a field. Up and down it went, like the surface of a churning sea. The green was endless and occurred in every shade, from the paleness of a caterpillar's belly to the deep emerald of a pine bough.")
Yes, very well written of course and the author probably spent ages getting all of this paragraph just right. I would have accepted "Pretty green fields". A simple description makes my mind work overtime to conjure the scene myself. However, due to the many readers that gave this book 4 and 5 star reviews, this writing style must be agreeable. Just not to me.
I only got to 41%. (I did try several times to get back into it) 2 stars for the writing and I agree with everything the other reviewers that gave this book 1 and 2 stars said. I do have another book on my reader by this author, so I will give that one a go at a later date. Sorry, you may love this book, but it wasn't for me.
