The lead female was a twit.

A sad disappointment, mostly because of the kind of writing that was prevalent in the early 1980's.

Miller gives us a 17-year-old heroine in a story set in the Pacific Northwest in 1889 who has all the thinking skills of a banana slug. She is so naive that she continually ends up in situations precarious to her reputation and well-being...and stupid enough to not learn from her own mistakes. I'd guess the hero would have gotten tired of rescuing her so often. Well-meaning busybodies don't tell h

In under 50 pages, I wished I'd never started reading this book. The first half was near intolerable. The female lead was seriously TSTL. It's 1889, you're the penniless 17 yr old daughter of a newly hired sawyer in a log town you just arrived in. How is it a good idea to accept an offer of a bath up at the house of the timber baron who owns the entire town and is twice your age that you just met and slapped, btw? And oh look, EVERYONE keeps warning you against him and you think, gosh, he's so p ...more

pretty good, though you don't find out what Athena's crime was towards Griffin until after a little over half the book is done. I enjoyed the read, it was quite entertaining and interesting although the end seemed somewhat rushed because Griffin was incarcerated about 20ish more or less pages before the finale & so the conclusion that followed is as expected, rushed and somewhat summarized. Otherwise, it was nice.

Pick up again? Not likely, maybe just skim or something.

Definitely not one of my favorite Linda Lael Miller books. It was a little annoying as it seemed like every other character introduced turned out to be a villian. Seriously, how many villians does one romance need?

I really liked this story but for some reason I didn't enjoy the writing. After a few chapters i literally skimmed the pages to get the rest of the story. Im not sure why I didn't enjoy reading this book even though i enjoyed the story that was told.

I am usually a fan of Miller; however, this was horrible. Complete mess. Ended up skipping first half hoping it would get better... Never did, so finally I just stopped reading it altogether.

Two men and only one woman. The true character of each man comes out in spades.
Very good book.

I enjoyed this book. Rachel was a little too insecure at times believing what Athena told her athena was a piece of work
