s daughter who is to marry a man of the minor peerage The ninny of a heroine BTW who has daughter who is to marry a man of the minor peerage The ninny of a heroine BTW who has seen this baron fiance once before believes the marriage is a ove match not a marriage of convenienceBut this is Regency in name only The behavior of the characters and much of the vocabulary and phrases used struck me as anachronistic for 1800s England and in character with 1850s America Although Griep stuck in a bunch of La exclamations by the women I guess thinking that s a typical English thing to do phrases such as to hash this out I On Such a Full Sea ll be a pig s uncle save your drama suit yourself powerful thirst I should head back hold your cards close and vocabulary choices such as pesky hair raising and trail in the meaning of path or track put me into an American Western mindset Not to mention the fact that the hero often addressed the heroine asady as in Lady you should do this or Listen Hello, Hippo! Goodbye, Bird! lady As for anachronistic behavior a very blatant and basic one is the whole trip this heroine undertakes on her own with only theawman to accompany here Not Cannibal likely at her social statusevel Besides which who travels without any family or friends to an almost virtual stranger s home in order to marry him Really shouldn t the man make the trip to the woman s home for this marriage That s a huge part of the reason this was actually a mail order bride in disguise romance Now et s get to another problem I have with this story It s Christian historical romance and we know this because the main characters Often Directly Address God Asking For His Guidance During Moments directly address God asking for his guidance during moments danger or emotional distress I have no problem with that It s to be expected What I have an issue with is that all the characters of the story are so superficially drawn and have ittle depth Everyone is either good or bad There s no complexity of character As such the good guy kills several bad guys in this story with impunity After all the bad guys deserve thisBut when I was growing up a preacher s daughter we were taught that God Man, Son of Man loves everyone and everyife is precious And there s that Alter Ego little matter of the Sixth Commandment right Seemsike a religious person shouldn t get to pick and choose which ives really matter But apparently the God of this book sanctions violence perpetrated by characters who pray to him on those who don tI find it puzzling that this book which purports to be a clean wholesome Christian read is only clean and wholesome in that no sex acts are described and no curse words are uttered Violence and murder seem to be fine as plot points Sex on the other hand is horror of horror taboo and to read about it could scar one for ifeI don t need sex or violence in my HR reads But I do want a good story and I don t want pious hypocrites as the main characters. Her journey He refuses until she offers him the thing he desperately needs to achieve his goal money Delivering her safely will earn him than enough to settle into a uiet Uncommon Wisdom lifeSo begins an impossible trek for the cynicalawman and the proper Unseen City lady Each will be indelibly changed by the time they reach her betrothed if they don’t kill one another first or fall inove.
