    Meh Snooze One review for another of Townend s books puts it best bl bl bl repetitivo I can t tell you precisely what language that is Spanish, maybe Portuguese but such a sentiment must be universal, because it s precisely my English speaking reaction The hero is bland, the heroine is meh, the leads repeatedly rehash the same sticking points over over, doing their damnedest to bolster the page count with previously establishe Meh Snooze One review for another of Townend s books puts it best bl bl bl repetitivo I can t tell you precisely what language that is Spanish, maybe Portuguese but such a sentiment must be universal, because it s precisely my English speaking reaction The hero is bland, the heroine is meh, overarching plot is thinner than a Nilla Wafer the leads repeatedly rehash the same sticking points over over, doing their damnedest to bolster the page count with previously established stumbling blocks revelations on a feedback loop The endless feels were enough to put me to sleep, turning a relatively short romance into a marathon of perseverance side eyed disbelief Nobody really does anything, the mystery about the maid was resolved with a whimper, as she literally exits the story off page, never to return WTF Bl bl bl repetitivo, indeed _______ Best thing about this one is the beefcake knight on the cover who looks like he could kick the hero s ass EDIT Apparently the maid returns for her own story later in this series fitting, given that she s the most interesting character in the book But unless I m wow d by the other 2 Townends already on my shelf, I won t be bothering

    I gave up on this story a few chapters in The disrespect the hero shows the heroine was really disconcerting to me He delays their marriage and keeps her waiting in a convent for years without telling her why When they do meet he treats her like a child, and not a 20 year old adult, which would have been considered well into adulthood in that time period I especially disliked that although he admires her will and determination, he also thinks he is going to discipline her Look, I know durin I gave up on this story a few chapters in The disrespect the hero shows the heroine was really disconcerting to me He delays their marriage and keeps her waiting in a convent for years without telling her why When they do meet he treats her like a child, and not a 20 year old adult, which would have been considered well into adulthood in that time period I especially disliked that although he admires her will and determination, he also thinks he is going to discipline her Look, I know during the medieval period women were supposed to be obedient to their husbands, but it made me dislike the hero I felt sorry for the heroine and kept hoping someone better for her would come along

    2.5, na verdade Me diverti lendo, mas achei as atitudes do mocinho p ssimas e odiei a forma como ele tenta se justificar sobre a espera que fez a Isobel passar e isso s depois de muito tempo.
