A few steps above a Mills and Boon

I thought I would like this for a couple of reasons. First I expected a few good strong western style characters, a good story worth following, a bit of historical education, and basically something believable and yet interesting.
This was none of the above. Some of the lines between the characters were just stupid watery nonsense. I have never read a Mills and Boon but I guess it would be kinda like this rubbish.
