Yes, there is history and a western type of writing. At the time I bought the story(Kindle), the rating was 4.8 and now I see that it is 4.1. How sad. I would hope that people could say they didn't care for the book although the writing style was good. Unless they hated the book for content and writing style. I read a book a few days ago where I didn't care for the book at all but gave it 3 stars because the writing style was so good. It was simply not my cup of tea.
Although this is a romance and there is no sex , well if you call " making love "and "consummating their marriage three times" sex, well then there is some. However the writing was so good that I didn't even miss it. If the writing is poorly put together and no content, then at least something redeeming should fill it's space.
For people who like Historical Fiction, I was most pleased. It kept me interested all the way to the end.
