The Healer

The Healer - Allison Butler OK I bought the books from Ms. Butler because they were €1.99. I dragged myself through the first one. And I give up on this one. This heroine rubs me in all the wrong ways. Ms. Butler seems to favor heroines who are desperate for acceptance from their original families. I wonder whether there is a reason for that?

Since all the highland romances must have a alpha male for a hero, such novels, in my opinion, depends on the heroine to make a mark in readers' minds. I find blind loyalty and low self-esteem really unattractive. And the heroine in this book is the epitome of blind loyalty and low self-esteem. Plus the rather amateurish writing.....there is little hope left for the book on my shelf.

But man, what a cover. Both her books have such amazing covers and it was totally a selling point. lol
