This was a category romance I picked up on the basis of the author, Barbara Metzger, being described as a witty, hilarious banter, regency romance writer.

I thought I was in the mood for witty banter, but I guess either the recent Jane Austen fest on Masterpiece Theater filled me up, or those category romance don’t hold up to the test of time.

All’s I’m sayin’ is that I like them a tad…….spicier? or more intriguing then this. Witty is fine, but I also want angst and complicated pasts and a bit of action (spy or intrigue, not that other kind) with my romances.

It was a bit boring for me.
