I like nothing better than a good romance novel, particularly when I’m feeling tired and over-worked (which seems to be all the time at the moment).

Can't quite decide how many stars I wanted to give this book. At times I felt it deserved 5 stars and other times I felt I could only give it 3. I really enjoyed reading the story of Gideon and Charis and had great difficulty in putting it down, yet towards the end I felt certain moments fell a bit flat, as though it had been finished in a rush. One thing I can't fault is the connection you feel with the characters, particularly with Gideon. Definitely worth the read.
Different.. A little frustrating because of Gideon and his refusal to touch our heroine, but I guess it just build more tension between them..!! I really like Campbell's writing, she can be intense and mean and nice and relieved all in one scene.. I got a little wrapped up in Charis' fight for love and found myself saying her lines to myself as though I was Charis.. sad, I know.. But it was a great story!!
