    I hated it

    I couldn't wait to read this book. I've been reading Bertrice Small for years. She's my favorite author. I never thought I would give any of her books less than 4 stars but I have to give this book 1 star. It was that bad. I read the reviews before I bought it but I ignored them because people gave 'Memory Of Love' and 'Bedazzled' bad reviews too, but I loved them. The reviews are not wrong. This book is terrible. I couldn't even finish it. I read the first few chapters and was shocked at how bad it was. I hated all of the characters in this book, especially the heroine. She was so immature - I couldn't believe that she was over the age of 30. She's my least favorite heroine of all time. Private Pleasures was not one of her best books, but I did enjoy it enough to finish it. It was a lot better than this book. The parts I hated the most was when the herione visited The Channel. I skimmed through those parts, because, they were so boring. I think Ms. Small needs to stick to historicals. Do not let this book stop you from reading other books by Bertrice Small. She's usually a great writer. The O'Malley Series, Lara Series, Beloved, Blaze Whyndam and Hellion (just to name a few) are really good. I'm not sure why she decided to put out such a bad book. Even though this book was bad, I am looking forward to reading the latest book in the Border Cronicles series that comes out later this year.
