I am being so good.
Reading this utter fucking boring badly plotted contradictory nonsensical tripe from beginning to end. It is taking me forever and a day to plod my way through it.
Apart from the deflowering scene there is no hotness whatsoever. The overwhelming problem is the self-righteous, delusional too-stupid-to-live heroine. And yes. She thoroughly deserves to die. Time after time she almost causes the hero's death.
Plus the totally useless nitwit hero. Who is supposed to be a spymaster!!! But cannot find a big enormously fat Frenchman masquerading as Germanic nobility who is being introduced to the ton by a broke Lord of the realm. The hero's men not only shoot dead an unarmed woman in the back, but have completely innnocent French men and women thrown into jail. Jeez. What a bunch of fools.
tbc maybe. And please. Take offense and buy a better romance than this. I've read it so you don't have to. Ugh!
