I started off liking this book a lot. Charity came off bold and strong. She made a proposition to Lord Dure to marry her instead of her sister (who is in love with another man). So he accepts it. Once they go out officially into society, another man pushes up on her. So of course, her fiance do not like this guy (we later find out it was for good reasons). My thing is that she continues to see this man knowing that Dure doesn't like him. Her excuse is that she don't want him to think that he can tell her what to do once they are married. I was disgusted with this book b/c Charity started to act like a child and she was engaging with the enemy.
