MC Beaton's regency stories are usually peopled with less likable characters and contain more abusive situations than is typical of the genre, but usually there is some change and redemption by the end of the book. There are NO sympathetic characters in this book nor do they ever become likable. In fact, I grew to dislike them more as the story went along.
One distasteful aspect of some Beaton stories is violence to women. This book has both casual and deliberate violence toward women. Because I'd not previously encountered a Beaton book this awful, I continued to listen to the end hoping for better, but I was heartily sick of both main characters and the book itself by the time I got to the end.
It makes me leery of listening to the next one I downloaded...

I've almost read all of Chesneys regency period novels I have about ten more to go. This one was just terrible!
