La verdad es que al prncipio me sentí sumamente intrigada por la historia pues me cautivo pero al pasar las paginas fue decayendo en mucho mi int

Good, basic romance. Quick read. Very basic 1500s European history worked a little into the story. Nothing complicated, typical romance story (attractive man and woman, both resisting the relationship but can't help falling for each other, everything works out in the end). Not a bad story, not a great story.

Baronesse Sabina von Ziegler has a scandal in her past. Because of this, her step-father sends her off to a convent. Her mother is dead and she is looking to marry to gain control over her inheritance. Her father arranges her marriage but creates a second marriage contract where he gains control her money. Her new husband is not of noble birth but a commoner. Will she settle for the life she has and the husband she didn't originally want?
Dans l'ensemble c'est un bon roman avec quelques éléments qui m'ont un peu dérangée

Il y a une contexte historique très (trop?) dense et important dans le livre. Ce qui est intéressant ici c'est que l'histoire se déroule dans un lieu et dans un contexte assez inhabituel dans ce genre de roman.

Les personnages sont très touchant j'aime beaucoup les trois frères.
J'ai eu un peu de mal avec le passé du personnage masculin, le côté veuf éploré j'ai été à la fois touchée et en même temps triste pour

A frustrating book. Pretty well done, with excellent historical detail, set in a time and place not usually covered. The book went very well, up to the point Wolfgang reveals what happened to Sabina's inheritance. To that point we are told over and over how important this is to Sabina, and how her whole future is wrapped up in using this money. Then in like 5 minutes she does a 180 and it just doesn't matter to her, and is not event mentioned until the end when Wolfgang fixes it all up. I'm sorr ...more

Free download so I really can't complain. Good chemistry between hero and heroine, but I'm really tired of "feisty" heroines who are in reality passive doormats to the hero's alpha behavior. Interesting setting - 15th century post-Reformation Germany. Would think twice about paying for future titles by this author, but for free it was not a bad guilty pleasure read.

Una novela que no ha estado nada mal. No tiene cuatro estrellas porque no ha sabido aprovechar la oportunidad que le daba ubicar la historia en Sajonia durante la formación del protestantismo. Al final es la típica historia de amor de un matrimonio entre personas que se conocen en día de la boda y se aman casi desde entonces.

This ebook was free when I downloaded it from Barnes and Noble to my Nook library.
I enjoyed the historical setting in Wittenberg and the history lessons contained in this novel. I downgraded it to three stars because it made this prude blush enough I give it an R (or TV-MA-S) rating.

This was a pretty good book, which I didn't expect since it was free! I like how the author fused so much history into the story without info-dumping and how this storyline was completely tied up, but still managed to leave enough questions for another story.

A very enjoyable story with well developed characters. The perseverance of Sabina is amazing while Wolfgang fights letting go of the past in order to embrace his new life/wife. I'd recommend to anyone who enjoys a historical romance.

I didn't know this was a romance novel in the sense that it is basically porn in book form. But, even with skipping over those parts, it was a decent read. Wouldn't recommend it if you don't like the whole romance genre.
