Ugh. If you're going to do a "marriage of convenience" type of romance, you have to get us to the point where we like the hero BEFORE page 200. Seriously. He needs a save the cat moment early on, esp. if he's going to be a rake for most of the book. I know that they end up together, because it's a romance and because I read the little snippet from the sequel at the back of the book. I feel awful for Rue, the heroine, because she deserves better.
