This is one of those books where I'm just not affected enough either way to write much about it. I liked the honorable, crusading hero who was unafraid of marriage and spoke to women and children as his equals. The forthright heroine with the will of a fighter charmed me as she faced down a vicious rumor campaign against her without whining or playing the martyr. Unfortunately, so much of the book is dedicated to the hero building a case against the heroine's tormentor that I felt I never saw the couple interact. I thought their personalities seemed well-matched, and the possibilities were there, but I felt cheated of the opportunity to actually watch their romance unfold.An okay book, but nothing memorable.
