I should have loved this book, everything was there: historical setting, misunderstood hero, independent heroine und so on.
But I just couldn't connect to any of the characters. They seemed stiff and kind of cold, even though the heroine tries to save her aunt from her evil brothers clutches. In the end I didn't care for any of them and I also didn't particularly enjoy the writing.It's neither especially witty, something I enjoy in historical romances. And the dialogues bored me most of the time.
