    I will admit up front that category romance, especially heterosexual category romance, is a hard sell for me But this book promised crossdressing and swashbuckling shenanigans and secret identities, and it was, at the time, free ons Kindle store, so I thought, well, why not And for the most part, the book delivered The hero, Jean Paul, and the heroine, Miriame, were both likeable and interesting although she was a littleinteresting than he was , their relationship was sweet, and I will admit up front that category romance, especially heterosexual category romance, is a hard sell for me But this book promised crossdressing and swashbuckling shenanigans and secret identities, and it was, at the time, free ons Kindle store, so I thought, well, why not And for the most part, the book delivered The hero, Jean Paul, and the heroine, Miriame, were both likeable and interesting although she was a littleinteresting than he was , their relationship was sweet, and the obstacles in their way felt real and not like the characters were being ridiculous and should just sit down and talk to each other already Swashbuckling action, while not the main focus, was also present and quite fun The secondary court intrigue plot was also entertaining, and I enjoyed the fact that while the heroine s rival in love, Francine, looks like a stock shallow bitchy female rival character at first, by the end she s been given a littledepth and she and the heroine are on friendly terms It s common in fiction in general for the wrong love interest, as it were, to be portrayed quite negatively, and in historical fiction featuring plucky female leads in particular, women who conformto societal expectations tend to get a bad rap So it was nice to see those trends subverted a little.The pacing was a little weirdly rushed in places because this is part of a trilogy of books that all take place concurrently, so subplots involving Miriame s two friends also women who have joined the Musketeers disguised as men are brought up and then quickly dispensed of in a single sentence presumably because they are dealt with in depth in the other two books For the most part, though, things moved along at a decent pace, and my attention was hooked all the way through.And then I reached the ending, indeed the very last scene, wherein view spoiler Jean Paul asks Miriame to marry him, and she says no So he locks her in his apartment, takes her shoes and throws them out the window, and tells her that he doesn t like that answer, and is going to keep asking until he gets an answer he likes i.e until she says yes Yikes It s all okay, you see, because she really does want to marry him but feels like she can t because of Reasons, but still hide spoiler I know some people are into that kind of power dynamic, but I am really, really not, and the portrayal of the characters relationship up to that point had given me no reason whatsoever to expect that kind of thing It came out of left field, it didn t feel like it fit the characters as they were previously established, and it seemed completely unnecessary this is one of those cases where they really could have just talked about it and avoided all the skeevy coercive stuff So that soured me on the book a lot.Really, though, the only reason I was angry enough about the ending to feel moved to write a review is because I felt it had ruined for me what was otherwise a solidly enjoyable book So if the stuff mentioned in the previous paragraph is something you don t mind, or indeed actively enjoy, then I actually recommend it If, however, it bothers you like it does me, I suggest staying away

    Free Kindle Rated Hot Historical Romance I loved Miriam, but the hero was lacking for me He seems young, naive, and not very hero worthy He is attacked from behind, due to his own stupidity and incaution He is desperately in love with Francine, and then desperately in love with Miriam so is he really in love or just in lust again Miriam saves his life several times, and she is the one with all the ideas He just seems like a lost puppy Happy Reading
