If I can get past the block paragraphs. . . .

What the Duke Wants - Kristin Vayden

. . . this may be readable. 


I hate block paragraphs.


They break up the flow of the reading.


They make my imagination come to a dead, full stop.


I don't want my imagination to come to a dead, full stop.


Writers shouldn't want readers' imaginations to come to a dead, full stop.


Not ever.


Until The End.


And maybe not even then . . .
