Brynne is a young woman who is engaged to a man chosen by her father. It turns out that her father has promised her to a psychopath.
Nathan, the Duke of Aldmere is drawn into the drama when he prevents the psycho from beating Brynne.
Nathan's brother is working to prevent a plot against the Prince Regent.
The psychopath has a list that can do damage to Brynne, Nathan's brother, and a houseful of women who have given Brynne sanctuary.
With all this going on, this should be a rip roaring book. For me, much of it was boring. There were too many descriptions of inner thoughts and too little action. I wanted conversations filled with wit. That is not what I found. I do enjoy finding out how the lead characters feel about life and one another. But, not to the exclusion of activity.
I love historical romance. But, I want them to have a heroine and hero who make me want to spend time with them. I want the atmosphere be one of a slow realization that the attraction is wonderful. I want obstacles which can be overcome – together.
I am not against mystery and villains and adventure. But, I want it to be done in a way that is an exciting and fun read.
I know that there are many people who enjoyed this book very much. For me it was just not that enjoyable.
