So beautiful she gathers men around her with a green-eyed glance.

So innocent yet a capacity for passion smolders within her.

So strong-willed she will leave her family rather than marry a man she does not love.

So loyal she will follow her man from San Francisco to England to the Crimea and surrender her body and soul to save him.

Simply couldn't get into the story or the characters. I know some bodice rippers have pretty shallow, flat characters but these really took the cake.

It probably wasn’t good to read this book immediately after my previous read. I couldn't stop comparing similarities within the plots or the differences in each author's writing talent. That said, my rating/review may have been a bit different otherwise...but I don't know about that...

Jared, the man who comes to guide her gets on her nerves right off--he goads her and demeans her from the start,but of course she has to fall in love with him. It's never quite clear where the relationship comes from, as he always treats her badly, and he jumps pretty abruptly from finding her childi ...more
