I'm coming to the conclusion that I don't like old school romance. The hero was a jerk. I didn't like him, at all. Supposedly there is some redemption by the end but most of the book is just Kylemore treating Verity like crap, kidnapping her and raping her. NOT OKAY. He's a bad, bad dude. I wasn't willing to stick around until the end to see if he somehow became a nice guy, because how do you come back from kidnapping and rape? I don't know that you can. Maybe with a lot of groveling, but he didn't seem the type to grovel and I just wanted to punch him in the face.
