This is a nice story that brings on some fresh and breezy kind of fun, with enough emotional punch too.
This one is pretty okay until it loses steam halfway through. Debut efforts can be such a drag that way.
Yes, the title is a warning: the heroine is a doormat. But the story is not too bad.
The asshole hero doesn’t grovel or get punished enough, hmph!
This is probably the only story with a Pollyanna village healer and a tortured hero that I can bear to reread more than once.
