    Extremely Annoying

    I have read several of Brenda Joyce¿s early novels and I thought that they were very good. However the characters in this book got on my nerves. Usually it takes me a day or two to read a book. I had to force myself to finish this book, because the constant begging and crying from the heroine really annoyed me. It was pathetic the way she kept chasing after this man, I like strong heroines. Over all this book was a big disappointment for me.

    Read this only if all the other books in the world were gone

    Bad book. If you want a book about a crazy woman who it totally selfish this is the book for you. Worst heroine ever. Silly flash back at the end of every chapter.

    What a disappointment!

    I had read A Lady at Last and enjoyed every page of it, so I picked up this book and her the next in the de Warrene series immediately. I decided to read this one first since it was the earlier book in the series. Sadly, I'm debating whether to even waste my time with The Perfect Bride after reading this one. I hope it is of better caliber than this debacle. First, the whole semi-incestuous stepbrother/stepsister thing was just a little too wierd for my taste. Instead of making the reader see their long suffering love, the flashbacks of their childhood had the opposite effect and magnified the creepiness of the familial connection. But like a trooper, I kept reading thinking that I would get past that fact once I really grew acquainted with the main characters. Unfortunately, these were the most irritating characters I have ever encountered in a book, including the villians. The heroine, Eleanor, was like a broken record. The hero, Sean, was equally irritating. They did the stupidest things, especially Eleanor. Their dialogue was flat and repetitive. I could not bring myself to empathize with thier plight at all. By the end, I was hoping they would get caught and hung just to put us all out of our misery!

    Not her best!

    I have to say that this was not Brenda's best work. It takes away from the quality of the other De Warenne Dynasty Series. Not sure where Brenda Joyce went wrong here, but the book was just awful!
