Book Review of The Border Lord's Bride (Border Chronicles, Bk 2)

I don't understand what this book was supposed to be. A boring recitation of historical events? A romance novel? Literary porn? There was no chemistry between the characters. The book moves from irrelevant-to-the- plot rambling monologues on historical events, to completely cringe-inducing descriptions of violence done to women, to unbelievable plot points. Rape of women is so commonplace that the heroine doesn't get too bothered by it, but even when the plot logically is begging for it to happen to her, it magically does not. Not that I want any character to be raped, but it rang completely false and ridiculous to me. It was a terrible book. I can't believe I actually finished it.
