The Pirate Bride

The Pirate Bride - Sandra Hill I am one of the fans that has been reading Ms. Hill since the very beginning. I adored most of the Viking books, even the ones that really didn't deserve it. I found that the earlier books of Ms Hill's are a little more traditional and I will NEVER forget how I adore, to this day, The Outlaw Viking. I re-read this book at least once a year and still cry when reading it.

But I think I may just have found one that disgruntles me to the point that it was a struggle to finish, let alone to finish without plucking my eye-balls out of my head.

The characters are insipid and unlikeable, the comedic parts are trite,annoying and NOT funny. What used to be funny like the Scald's constant poetry, is just hackneyed now. What is supposed to be cute and funny just seems forced and the love scenes don't ring true.

I really didn't want to finish this book, but felt it was my duty---I hope *someone* appreciates my sacrifice!LOL *ARC Supplied by Publisher*
