Liked the book itself, good storyline, nice intro to series. Enjoyed the general plot, for the most part, but not one I'll read a second time...

Didn't really like Kane, not my kind of hero (he uses fear and force against Regina on a regular basis) -- the first thing he does to Regina (who is both claustrophobic and a rape victim) is lock her in a coffin with him and sexually assault her, saying that she won't be released until he "gets what he wants" from her.

3.5 stars I had very mixed feelings about this book. Jennifer Blake is a very good writer and this story had an interesting premise, but the two main characters were very hard to like. But it moved quickly and the side characters were interesting. I will continue with this series.
Blake writes a lot of historical fiction. This one is set in more modern times. I've read many of her books. Fairly typical romance novel stuff. Melodrama. Later on, I realized her prose contains the formulaic virgin rape fantasy which I'm not so sure is a good thing...
I felt that this book was very slow starting, but I really liked the suspense and the characters.
It got better towards the end. I may try reading the second in the series to see if I like it better.

This is probably a good book bit after 4 attempts to finish the first chapter I decided to call it quits
Nice story, I'll more of this author
