It was a short story, but very well told, if a bit unbelievable, but McAcbe wrote something in 48 pages that some people can't write given 300 or more, and that was emotion, passion and entertainment. Will definitely look for more stuff from her.

Short books and I really have a difficult relationship. I always end up feeling everything was forced and rushed and this time it wasn't different.

And there was a lot of potential. The author could definitely have worked more on Melisande's painful past and developed that, not only for the sake of the readers, but also for Gray.

Well, if you're looking for something light, this is definitely the way to go. Just don't expect too much,
It was ok, but I would have liked it if it was longer. Read 12.sep

Amanda wrote her first romance at the age of sixteen--a vast historical epic starring all her friends as the characters, written secretly during algebra class (and her parents wondered why math was not her strongest subject...)

She's never since used algebra, but her books have been nominated for many awards, including the RITA Award, the Romantic Times BOOKReviews
