Cute but short
- Maine Knitter
A little slower than the earlier four books
I really enjoyed all the previous books in this series, but I feel like this one could have been better. It's probably more a matter of my personal preferences when it comes to my reading material. Spending the last half of the book reading about the tired hero and the tired heroine taking care of the baby twins they conceived the one and only time they did the deed, and Sarah's predictable rollercoaster-y "I'm so ugly, he probably won't want to touch me ever again" attitude, got old pretty fast. There was very little romance in this regency romance novel. Regardless, I'm still looking forward to the remaining two in the series - hopefully they'll be baby-free.
