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.

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.

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.

Rosalyn Landor

Is the only good thing about this book. The dog Nelson is the only rational adult in the book. Moira is just a spoiled child. I have read most of Ms Balogh's books and this one sucked. I never could even start to like Moira...she pouted and was just plain mean. Kenneth was a saint. I don't know why he even bothered with her. I have to agree with others about the stupid reason for the first sexual encounter. Really? If you can get for free...go ahead and struggle through if you want...otherwise don't waste you money.

One last thing. ALL. the men in this series are quite obnoxious. Ms Balogh's heroes are usually better. This series is pretty lame.

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!!

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!

Not my favorite in series but…

Consistent in character development. Far fetched scenario in surviving the winter storm brings to mind a rebuttal spoken repeatedly in the series, try not to be ridiculous. And yet it is, but how else are you going to push the plot. Chug through this one, the next is so much better. Irresistible is my favorite. Carry on…

You have to love Mary Balogh…

…to continue reading this book in the series, the MC, Moira is dreadful and the other MC, Ken is cold and unforgiving.
And unfortunately, it takes about 95% of the book for them to understand what they have been doing to sabotage their relationship. Some folks really enjoy books with lots of angst. I gave this four stars since Mary Balogh is such a good writer.
