While I was put off by Edwina’s almost ridiculous level of responsiveness to Diablo, I couldn’t help but enjoy the whole “Good Girl Meets Bad Boy” vibe of the entire story. Watching Edwina finally take a walk on the wild side was exhilarating, and I couldn’t wait to see the two of them get their HEA, no matter what obstacles lay before them.
In the end, I think that Edwina’s weakness when it came to her attraction to Diablo was rather detrimental to the story. As this is a reissue of a story originally published in 1990, it certainly fit with the vibe of the times, but I personally prefer that my heroines be able to control their hormones a little bit better.
Fans of older contemporary romances, or of the types of heroines who typically grace the pages of Category Romances will very likely adore Edwina. For me, however, I believe I was simply in the mood for a different category of heroine when I picked this up, and my final rating reflects this.
Overall, it was still an entertaining read, with not only quite a bit of delicious sexual tension, but also a surprising amount of action and mystery.
