For those who enjoy "bodice-rippers", I doubt this book will engage you.That can be bad, because this is a chunkster of a book, and whilst a snail-paced beginning can be forgiven in big books, if it drags for this long, readers either quit or are so impatient as to be predisposed to judge the later parts less favourably.

That feels like the book drags on and on, and since the second half is faster-paced, the imbalance is noticeable. Wenn der Traumprinz zweimal klingelt!
Geraint especially, he is a darling.
Very nice detail here compared to other stories in the genre.
