I groaned in exasperation starting this book - it began cheesy with sex right off the bat, silly descriptive phrases, and ridiculous passion. I'm happy to say it turned a bit funny a few pages in though, and from then on redeemed itself.

Sex is here but not dominating and the story is actually a very intriguing one for a romance. I got the false impression that plot would take too much of a backseat to cheaply injected intimacy but thankfully this isn't the case. I'm sure that people who had read

I really liked this book. After reading the previous installment of the trilogy I was excited to find this one, too, at a used bookstore.

Virginia was introduced in the prior book about her sister Agnes who has been relentlessly searching for her missing sister. Her betrothed (since she was child) had given up hope until he saw an engraving of a symbol Virginia had made for the two of them.

This is not a typical betrothed since childhood story. Cameron loves Virginia, and she him, and always has.
Delicious old skool romance! A real gem of a read. I was afraid the author would give the h/h a sad conflict before the HEA, but she surprised me and gave us a hero to die for. Cameron is the perfect romantic hero who put aside his own grief and feelings to help Virginia. I loved it!
Demasiado extenso para mi gusto, casi un nulo proceso en la relación de los protagonistas durante las primeras 100 páginas y eso me quitó el interés de continuarlo

Pretty good, wasn't full of sex and violence but was interesting and kept you wondering what the secret was she was hiding
I really loved this book and have kept it on my bookshelf.
