I so wanted to like this

Rating By Janette, 28 Jul 2011

First off, I will say that I'm a huge fan of Juliet Landon and have read all, and I mean all, of her fiction (which involved tracking down some really tatty copies on Amazon!). Because of the amount of research which she undertakes before commencing writing, there's a real authenticity to not only the setting, but also the historical/economic background of the piece, as opposed to just plonking two main characters into a location and timeframe. Yet despite all of the detail which she carefully introduces, it doesn't detract from the relationship (or sometimes, relationships) which are woven thru all her stories and she manages to create the most wonderful hero/ines. Sadly with this book, for once I felt that there was more emphasis on the historical accuracy of the piece rather than the relationship between the two main characters. I really wanted to like them both, but at the end, I didn't really care if they remained together or not and when all's said and done, that IS the most important aspect of a romance - whether it's set in 2011 or in Roman times as this one was. On a positive note, my knowledge of Roman Britain has dramatically improved!
