Book Review: The Slightest Provocation
The Slightest Provocation by Pam Rosenthal
One of my patrons had listed this novel as "very sensual" in a book review, and as it was a Regency romance (known more for manners and sharp wit) I was intrigued.
Okay, maybe I just missed it - lots of other reviewers raved about this novel, but I didn't see it. I didn't see a lot of depth, and I didn't really care for the characters, or even the acrobatic sex they had several times throughout the novel as they reconciled a marriage gone bad. Many of the political events and schemes were written so that it made me feel I should already know what's going on and who's who, and what's what, and I was lost through much of it.
I liked the countryside descriptions and the sex scenes were all well and good, but found little else to recommend it.
