I will give this book props because it is definitely more than a bodice ripping romance novel, however, I just couldn't get into it like I wanted to. I read a ton of other reviews and was hopping from what I had read that it would be more of an Outlander type adventure romance. It wasn't what I was looking for, but it really isn't a bad book. The language and writing reads more like a classic novel than anything. I liked it, just didn't love it.
