I feel kinda duped

Here's the deal:  I was looking at the books available at NetGalley and this historical romance called my name.  Just judging by the title, I honestly felt that if it wasn't an outright comedy, at least, it would have a strong humorous element.  To make the story short, it didn't have a strong humorous element.  As a matter of fact, more than 2/3s of it involved the conflict between the main characters, and it wasn't a "fun" type of conflict, if you know what I mean.  Mind you, in romance a book is supposed to have a conflict, so that is not what I am complaining about either, but as I said, I was expecting something entirely different and suffice it to say, though I finished reading the book, I can't say I liked it... and I think that feeling is mostly because I did feel disappointed,  The book reminded me more of Brenda Joyce's style, whose work I read when I am in the mood for it because, well, I find her style a bit dramatic, for lack of a better word. 

Anyway, now I am sitting here, typing this, and trying to figure out how to write that review.  *sigh*
