Well...if historical gets it (as it looks like it will), people can choose to read something along those lines...
It actually fits very well 8)

I'm really pulling for romance, just because of being a hopeless romantic. Fingers crossed!

Honestly, I would rate it as a 1, maybe a 2 because I was able to finish it. For me, it was disconnected, and I went into it expecting something different, so that probably didn't help the situation.
