I first read this book when I was a teenager. I found it in a stack of books at a garage sale and my grandmother bought it for me. I never told her there were very descriptive sex scenes in the book. LOL. It's a great read and I just read it again for the 5th time.
I first read this book in the late 90s, and I loved it. It was probably one of the first romance novels I read, and it still pops up in my mind every so often. I loved the setting of the book; I have a thing for historicals, and it was set in New Orleans. I think I might have to reread this one soon.
Its a good read if you like romance novels about a poor girl thats basically "swamp trash" who becomes the toast of 1830's New Orleans. Yeah, its got some naughty bits...thats why I read it!
Just an awfully long and drawn out story. Could have gotten to the point way sooner than it did and then you add in all the unnecessary characters and subplots it just made the book annoying.
This was a really fun read. Good romance while getting a picture of life in 1830's in swamps of Lousiana and then New Orleans. Well written and entertaining.
