I enjoyed the reading of this novel. the novel itself was not as good as I remembered. Penny Scott-Andrews, however has a quirky quality to her voice that I found charming.
Though beautiful in a far from ordinary mode, we know the heroine, despite her madcap ways is desirable by the lecherous men who are after her. She takes a dislike to the hero who in several incidents insults her. The 3 deliberate acts of revenge she does are easily fixed. The more serious incidents that befall her are actually pure accidents by her or someone else or acts of misbehavior by other characters. Yet she either takes the blame for these mishaps or has it shoved onto her by others, including the hero. She may be accident prone but she is not evil as the negative reviews would have you believe. I honestly believe the negative reviewers are real life embodiments of the fictional self righteous step mother.
Although I did not dislike the hero's original fiancee, she did show some signs of becoming like her mother, personality wise, so it is just as well that betrothed does not last, especially as the hero's feelings for her were tepid and contained no love at all.
Because the most helpful reviews showing on the book's e-book and audio book pages were mostly negative, I had to use the inverse rule of reviews to decide to purchase this book.
