I wouldn't say that I have a 'negative' view of Mills and Boon books but I have a negative view of Mills and Boon books, largely their titles which are often Terrible. Plot: Usually these style books start with the leading couple - Elizabeth and Richard - being forced into a marriage that neither wants, and the reader just gets to sit back and enjoy the fireworks and the slow development of their romance. There were no fireworks and the romance kicked in so suddenly that I was a bit disappoi I wouldn't say that I have a 'negative' view of Mills and Boon books but. I enjoyed this fast, eas This book has a horrid title but don't be put off by that. The story was good and engrossing.

I was in the mood for a good book and this was very good. I see that there are no summaries from the other reviewers so I'll do a quick overview:

Richard, our H, was married to the exquisite Gwladys, who died in childbirth. He is then betrothed to the 10 yr old De Lacey daughter of his enemy, John De Lacey. The child also dies so John, the villain, then arranges another contract between his niece, Elizabeth and Richard. Elizabeth, our h, has been kept in desperate conditions in a priory. She is very thin and her hair is hacked off and so when our gorgeous H meets her, she is not at all attractive. So begins their story and through wonderful story telling, our H and h slowly fall in love. It is wonderful to read about. There is an element of the dark arts in this book but it only serves to enhance the villainous plot against our main characters.

This book is well worth reading!
All Anne O'brien's book are awesome! Great author, read them all!
Very good read it kept me interested through the whole book. I would have slapped down Anne many times though for her disrespectful ways toward Elizabeth. I love how Ellen spoke up for herself. I wish I knew what became of Nicholas Capel but good read this is my second time reading this book and I love it evermore
I enjoyed this book very much. I grew to like the MCs. The author developed their characters and their relationship well. I didn't like that the evil guy (can't think of his name) disappears without explanation, leaving a loose end (for a sequel, perhaps?), but all in all this was a very good read.
I borrowed this book from the library and read it on my Kindle.
Elizabeth and Richard are married not for love but for a political alliance promoted by her uncle Sir John de Lacy. Elizabeth agrees to get out of the nunnery where she has been "incarcerated" because she refused to marry a prior suitor. Richard agrees because he needs an heir but he is wary and doesn't trust Sir John. In spite of their differences they form an uneasy bond. I enjoyed this book, I liked the way the characters began to trust one another slowly building to a love match. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is that the ending felt rushed and I wasn't sure what happened to one of the bad guys.
Enjoying the story but have found this book enormously hard to read. With so many split words such as scrambled printed as "scram bled" or "sat is faction" instead of satisfaction. Easy to over look a few of these but this book is so full of this type of error it is hard to read. I have found myself stopped more than once by these odd splits. These are not splits or spaces in the words to preserve a column. Someone should not have a job over this type of proof reading. Or maybe the publisher should hire a proof reader instead of using a computer to proof read. This book desperately needs a person proof reader.
This book had its moments. It wasn't dreadful. But it sure wasn't good either! It was almost like the author forgot things she'd already written and changed the plot without remembering it. The main characters were quite nice, but the plot holes were just way too annoying to make this pleasurable reading. I highly recommend you read something else.
I found this book very dull. There was nothing to the conflicts. For instance Anne (the cousin) was never really delt with. Another thing David "the Heir" could just runaway from his guardian and hide out with a sworn enemy that supposedly killed the other heir without any repercusions. They blamed that arrow thing on David and Sir John basically just says he's just a boy and I think you should be getting back home soon. I was expecting him to flip out, his heir has been gone for a day or so and he's been hiding out at some place where he's probably in danger. That was weird scene.

It just seems that this book didn't delve to much into the emotions of the book. Even Elizabeth came off as being fake as if she was acting out a scene rather than becoming the part. The couple didn't even seem to be that in love; there love didn't come through in this book. I didn't connect at all with this book and it left me feeling disappointed. This book had a lot of actions but there wasn't a lot of reactions. The author skipped over a lot of the reactions that would make the story flow better and make the reader feel satisfied that they've just read a great story.
