Dull - don't bother,

This review is from: Her Only Desire (Paperback)
I had no interest in all the long-winded politics, in fact I find this level of politics a bit pretentious in a romance - if I buy a romance, I want to read about romance! When it came to the romance, I found the characters one-dimensional and cliched, and had no connection or empathy with them whatsoever. I read to the end just in case it improved, but sadly not. The worst feature for me was the american language. If US writers set their stories in British history they should ensure the language is appropriate to that period and culture. We don't use "someplace" or phrases such as "listen up", "fix" a meal, or my all time biggest irritant "gotten" (which does not exist in british english) in english now, let alone at that period. Two other modern language sins were "pinky finger" and "in the sack" - I cringed every time I read one of the solecisms. I definitely won't be buying another of hers.
