I won't read a book that doesn't contain a romance plot of one kind or another...

Pendragon - Catherine Coulter 3.5*

This very much reminded me of Julie Garwood's style, especially where the ditzy heroine was concerned, but less sweet and with a couple of darker edges in some points of the plot. I know I have been complaining a bit, but I actually liked it and I would have liked it more had the heroine been more mature than childish, and had she not loved another man for 2/3 of the book. She may have been devoted to her husband, but all her 'Jeremy said this' and 'Jeremy would do that' did not make her particularly endearing. However, the hero was yummy, besotted and his pain and love for her very deep and emotional. Besides a single scene of slightly rough sex (which was right after he learns that his wife loves another man), he was sweet and tender and loving her even though he knew she loved someone else, which made me ache for him and want to hug him:)
It could have been better but I enjoyed reading it anyway.
