ARC DNF Review: The Inkeeper’s Daughter by Bianca M. Schwarz

Rating: 1 out of 5.

All right. I should have learned my lesson by now to ONLY request romance books from authors I already know and love because I’ve had quite a few duds.

This one I could tell almost from the first pages that it was absolutely not for me. It starts with a scene where a man is abusing a young woman. It was rough, but it was also full of oddly anachronistic lines (since it’s supposed to be set in 1819. Lines such as “I told ya t’ go pack yar crap” and “calling Wilkins ‘Pig Face’ was sure to get his goat” and “what the fuck’s yar problem?” (all of which happen within the first few pages).

Reading some of the reviews, I see that those anachronisms continue, as does the focus on rough, brutal sex and abuse. Not my cup of tea.

Thanks to NetGalley and Central Avenue Publishing for providing an e-arc to review.
