Heroine is a bit difficult to like

I love Mary Balogh, and I enjoyed this book, but I had a really hard time with the heroine. She was unreasonably obstinate. The Hero was a very nice guy, actually....
Ms. Landor did a fantastic job, as usual.

Not her best

At the risk of a spoiler, a critical plot element in this book relies on the stupidest excuse for having sex I've about ever read.

All angst to the end

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Noone

What could Mary Balogh have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Read or listen to all her book & love them & relisten or reread them BUT this one did not even seem like she wrote it.

Which scene was your favorite?

None

What character would you cut from Unforgiven?

None

Any additional comments?

This was filled with irritating angst. There is enough of it in the real world. I read romance to escape from such..give me love & tenderness with good story not constant bickering!!

Should have taken heed

Would you try another book from Mary Balogh and/or Rosalyn Landor?

yes

What was most disappointing about Mary Balogh’s story?

Heroine...she was so annoying... she have to defy the hero at every turn...every turn...take it down a notch.

What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

Rosalyn was great per usual.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

More of a prelude to the 3rd book...

Any additional comments?

Since i like to complete series i am glad i listen to this but it is the weakest book in the trilogy.

Long and goes nowhere

Ugh. If you like a book full of silly arguing and an ending that barely resolves anything go ahead. As usual Rosalyn Landor great in narration.

My Musings

At about the half way mark, I wondered if this book would not live up to the high standards I expect from Ms. Balogh. I really struggled with liking the heroine and at times wished I could shake some sense into, but with her unfailingly talented way, Mary turned her around and had me sighing at the end. So glad i read/listened to this one. As always Ms. Landor was fabulous. Happy reading!

Good writer

I do enjoy this author but the story drags after a while. You want to reach out and shake both of them.

I did not like this book, but I finished it

I listened to this book despite the reviews...and for some reason I made myself finish it.
There were two things I did not like about this book: 1. The heroine. She was petty, childish and unable to have a conversation as an adult. She was mean the entire book, literally until the very last chapter.
2. You do not find out what happened all those years ago until the last chapter of the book.
Mary Balogh's books have been a favorite of mine. I was disappointment with the tediousness of this one.

I would not spend a credit on this book but if you have the romance package you might want to struggle through it for the purpose knowing what happens to the other members of the Horseman of the apocalypse . The third book is very good but not available on audible.

Not a simple love story...

Mary Balogh creates an emotionally complex story that feels almost like 3 books in one. She does not take the easy way from start to finish in this tale of struggling love.
And Rosalyn Landor does a fantastic job once again with her range of characterization, bringing to life each individual in this book.
