Oh how I loved Julie Garwood when I was 15.
But she had a few books which feature heroines that I have always wanted to strangle. Nicholaa is one of them.
First of all, why the double As in the name?? But I digress. I must admit that I was underwhelmed by this book. The story was ok but with Nicholaa as the heroine I was rolling my eyes all the time. A woman who wants her warrior husband to love her, playing childish games and the author makes these childish attempts into some kind of a great allure. I couldn't warm up to Nicholaa and Royce was kind of dull too.
The book could have been much better has Garwood wrote Nicholaa differently. I just don't get why anyone would find a meddlesome mother hen of a heroine attractive? That is Nicholaa.
