I quite enjoyed this one. I agree with some of the comments regarding how the heroine loses control of her senses every time the hero comes near, but I guess that's often a given with a Harlequin novel.

This was an unusual premise and I would have liked to see a few people in the story get their comeuppance. And, hey - at least the heroine didn't end up pregnant in this one!
