I don't know if I just forgive more in historical romances, but again this was not as bad as the contemporary ones I've read.
If you're a fan of escapist romance, note that this one really emotionally tortures the hero and heroine before they come to their reward. Their affection is in rags due to a dozen misunderstandings before they patch it up. I suppose it's not a bad way to go about building your novel, but I didn't feel like I got to escape all that much.
The sex scenes are not bad. The hero is no longer handsome and the heroine's beauty at least isn't eclipsing, both positive points for me. If I sound unenthusiastic, keep in mind this is not really my genre. You'll have to make your own mind up about this one.
