this is from the regency brides collection and I wish I had realized that before I agreed to review this book . It was definitely not my cup of tea and did not enjoy this book at all . I tend to stay away from shaggy romance novels . I'm just not that type of girl I guess . If you can call someone over 50 a girl ? who knows . I felt this book would be better suited to someone who likes romance novels or can understand the mindset of a pre Victorian woman I cannot understand that mind set because I feel as though some women yet today put up with garbage from men and they certainly did in this time frame that the book is set in .Yep definitely not one book for me .
