Carina was such an obnoxious heroine. She was like a spoiled child. I hated her. The dialogue and narrative was choppy. It seemed like for this book, as well asMesmerizedand Captivated that an editor or someone gave Ms. Dane a thesaurus from Regency England and said, here: Use this. The following words were used: kip, wanton, rogue, rake, abode, as well as many other. As I remember them , I'll add them. It was so incredibly jarring.
