Going along nicely, going along nicely. I like the two main characters, though their character development wasn't fabulous. That's okay for me if the love story makes up for it, but wait, what's that? IT DIDN'T. Sorry SPOILERS next people--avert your eyes if you don't want to know:
SHE MARRIES SOMEONE ELSE! Almost marrying someone else, engaged to someone else, marry and then annul b/f consummation--all of these I would accept, but no, Julianne Maclean thinks she some sort of epic novelist (I can't think of another way to phrase this, sorry) instead of a romance novelist (ie: happy endings, not-too-complicated love stories, heros and heroines--once they are in love--NOT SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE IN THE BOOK) and decides it will be a sweeping tale of war and....THE HEROINE MARRYING SOMEONE ELSE. I agree with Tina, another reviewer, I want to chuck this book out of the window. I want to scream and stomp my feet that I was rooting for three hours for a happy ending and then only got a grudging one with THE HEROINE MARRYING SOMEONE ELSE in between. Sorry, you broke a cardinal romance novel rule and I wasted 6 dollars and three hours of my life that I am not getting back. Poor people paying full price and getting this tripe, I could go on and on, but I'll end the rant now.
