Can there be too much sex in a romance novel? I'm not sure, but I think that the constant boinking between Pel and Grayson actually detracted from the story here. I never really felt that I knew these characters very well, and there really wasn't much story except the standard marriage-of-convenience-turns-to-love trope. Even with an evil mother-in-law and two rakehell younger brothers, just not much happened. I found it difficult to even finish the book.
