I really enjoyed the characters and story line, but it felt like the romance factor was lacking.
In the end they just kind of ended up together, there was no real developement of feeling or sudden realization followed by action and explanation. Plus it's a romance novel, I would have loved a bit more, well, 'romance'. :) The friendship and companionship is great and all but there was no longing here, except on Silly's part and it was mostly emotional, not a lot of physical.
I think Shannon Donnell
that was nice and refreshing.

The Heroine is not q prim little miss. but she4s no bridget jones wannabe either.

Him? he is a regular felow. NOt one of these "Rakes" driven with more stamina than Rocco Sifredi on crack.

the book time span last a few months that is also nice. Never quite sit well with me stories where the HH are all set and done in 15 days.
