And you know all those times I said I hoped she got ran over by her horse and carriage? I couldn’t put the book down at some parts!
But she is also cranky, surly and self-centred. Rafe, however, claims he’s not ready to marry yet and Ophelia says she will never consider Rafe as a husband because of how much her father would love to have a future duke as a son-in-law.
The author made no attempt to breath any life into these characters.
Not sure I’ll pursue any more, although I have the next one out from the library. I liked the cover and was enthralled by it because it was written by Johanna Lindsey. A bit too much was made of the heroines looks though that was the point but at one part I am hee enough already we know she is the most beautiful in the thee wide world: I felt it lacked the author’s typical trademark passion and entertaining writing.

Ophelia’s reasons for acting the way she did in the past were plausible yet still left me indifferent to her character. He understands her better.
