In the Garden of Disgrace (Garden, #3) - Cynthia Wicklund I would have liked it even better had the heroine been a little less annoying. From the start on she agreed that what happened to her was not the hero's fall per se and I also understood she had grown accustomed to be independent and also that it was more her hurt which made her do things not acceptable in society's eye but her hero told her he loved her, she believed him and given that she was not a woman who would take been dictated to lightly, there was no chance that his some times autocratic ways were going to really dominate her. In short, she dragged the courtship on longer than needed be.
