Thief of Hearts - Karen L. Syed She considered for a moment how wonderfully romantic it would be if a handsome stranger came along and kidnapped her. He would gaze into her eyes and fall helplessly in love with her. Gallantly he would sweep her up into his arms and carry her off on his horse to some exquisitely charming cottage where they would live happily ever after.The sharp ring of a gunshot snapped Janie out of her daydream. She leaned her head out of the window to get a better look.Given the short length, it wasn't painful, but it was entirely predictable and cliched. I wound up with a lot of "huh?" and "oops" and "ugh" comments in my ebook notes - inconsistencies, awkward dialogue, purple prose, odd word choices, and missing or extraneous words.Overall, I think "unsophisticated" probably sums it up best.
