I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
This was rather tedious.
I am disappointed that Ferdy didn't get a better story.
But this didn't have much depth and no real love story. Some physical stuff and also some very unprobable turns.
The twist with Viola's father was pretty much obvious from the beginning and the whole story was extremely predictable.
It was also very, very unrealistic.
Whatever Viola's unfortunate reasons might have been - she was a prostitute. Not good marrying material for a duke's brother. So this was more a fairy tale than any kind of serious historical.
