I understand the need for a back story. Why did it take over 200 pages to meet the hero? Adair fell in love with her second husband, who would have been a terrific hero. If the story is about Conal Bruce and Adiar then don't waste your time with 200+ pages of Adair growing up, marrying, widowed, marrying again, widowed AGAIN! Don't even get me started on the "honey love" I understand this author must have had something to be published. I've been reading romances for YEARS and years...I just feel like I wasted my $$. Conal Bruce is not attractive to me. I was more attracted to her dead husband, Andrew.
I give it 3 stars because I love the cover picture. I was interested for a while, trying my best...I quit this book after 240 pages. On to a Karen Marie Moning book -- now there's a story teller!
