So much that was readable and even charming, so much O_o is definitely Piers Anthony in a nutshell!

I'm completely with you on Rose Daughter as well. It's an overused term, but it felt very tryhard to me, like she had to make up for the pleasantness of Beauty or something.

Sherry Thomas is my favourite romance author—I don't know if you read much of that? Probably my favourite of hers is the horribly titled Ravishing the Heiress, which plunks you down in a contented arranged marriage several years in and gradually reveals the past and future of the couple. The format can be frustrating, but also engaging, and it's pretty much her trademark. I also liked Not Quite a Husband, also late Victorian, about an angsty separated couple—he's a dazzlingly attractive younger son/mathematician, she's a driven, intense doctor. Not a combination I've ever seen before! It also goes for plopping you in the middle of the drama and gradually revealing what happened.
