I liked it quite a bit. I was not fond of the little sideshow about the heroine's father. It was unnecessary. I know it was supposed to show the hero's big heart and his determination to show the heroine that he would do anything for her. I don't mean he should have made their shame public or something to that degree, I just don't think it added to the story. A - for me - better line would have been if he had helped her seeing her sister and after all once the sister married, she would have escaped the father dictatorship.
