The story started off very interesting. The scenes between the heroine and hero were exciting to watch as their relationship developed. After the couple marries the story takes a dip that never quite recovers. The couple doesn't interact as much in the second half of the book or show enough moments of mutual interest to keep you involved in their relationship. There seemed to be too much description of their feelings of pride.
