I found myself barely able to connect with almost any of the characters at all, there was barely any reason why I kept on reading except that I was expected to since I got a free copy of this.
The romance and characters were flat, and they became a bane to read. As it went to romance pretty fast, even though Annabel is a sort of spy or secret agent meant to search for his traitorous activities. Although I do know that Annabel wasn’t born into this, and the way she chose it was sensible. As for Romulus, the man she was supposed to check, I really couldn’t feel their chemistry together. Or even think they were a fit. But they are quite alike in some ways, and can work. Just that I don’t feel it.
However, she never really clicked with me much. It was just hard for me to get into, and really hard for me to relate. The entire problem lay there. Although the writing was good, I couldn’t really care much about the characters. And the plot was straightforward and the ending one that is happy. Like any typical historical fiction.
This just wasn’t for me, I couldn’t find myself loving it or anything. And that was the one thing that failed me in this book. I won’t say much more than this, but overall I do say still check it out. It just wasn’t my taste.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
