Not One Of Jo Beverly's Best

I usually enjoy Jo Beverly's books but Unwilling Bride had too much antagonism between the couple for too long- 2/3's of the book. I enjoy Romance novels as a pleasant escape from reality. Lucien's violent actions/feelings toward Beth and her fear of him were pretty tiresome after a while. I can't believe the author wrote into a romance novel that he backhanded her. Geez, if I wanted to read about domestic violence I would have bought a newspaper. Also, I don't particularly care for books in which the heroine is plain and the hero is handsome. As for the narrator sometimes he sounded like he was slurping. I would not recommend this book to anyone and I'm sorry I bought it.

LOVED IT !!!!!!

Any additional comments?

I am glad I did not go by the few negative reviews. It was a wonderful book and the narrator did a great job, though I was shocked they did not have him redo the scene in the first chapter where he pauses to burp. Lol. It was a story about a woman who gets forced to marry her father’s stepson. Since she is illegitimate and he is actually considered the heir to the dukedom, she gets forced by her father into the marriage so that his true bloodline continues. They initially both resist the marriage and are quite rude to one another, however, eventually fall in love. Definitely purchase this book.
