It was all sorts of great.
I enjoyed the story and the characters were wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed Jack (the scoundrel) with his alpha male, I know what I'm doing and I make no apologies about it, attitude. I think he was the perfect person to bring Oliver out of his shell a little.
Speaking of Oliver (our soldier)...can I just say how freaking adorable this man is? For a soldier, and a man that is not small in stature, he's all sorts of cute with his blushing and innocent way he sees things. I'm sure there will be people who gripe that he's a softie and men aren't that blinded about things going on then, but there will always be that one person who assumes the best in people and that they follow the rules. I honestly enjoyed his character the most out of the book.
Secondary characters and a wonderfully written story adds to this great tale of forbidden love. I cannot wait to see what else Ms. Sebastian has in store for for us in the future!...more

The beginning had a lot going for it. I was immediately sucked into the story. Although it was an all around enjoyable read, there were some things in it that made it seem like the author should have been writing a different age group for the hero and heroine. As an example, I don't know many 30 year olds who actually wear robes, including this 30 year old.
Even with a few blips in the story, I enjoyed it enough for it to keep my attention and wanting to know how the story ended. And Alex started off as a strong Alpha, but he calmed into a sweetheart with insecurities that had me feeling for him. I was, also, quite intrigued by Chase and Liane. I am looking forward to reading their book in the future....more

Sarah MacLean is one of my favorite historical authors (She is an automatic buy for me.) and I have been chomping at the bit to read this one-it was better than I imagined!
I immediately went in quite intrigued by Alec, the Duke of Warnick, from the first book in this series, The Rogue Not Taken. He was mysterious and seemed to not care about whatever it was London thought of him. I love a man that is quiet and confident. Fast forward to this book. I loved the depth of emotion and backstory for Alec. If I wasn't already half in love with him, I would have been pushed over the edge shortly after starting this story. He ranks up there as one of my favorites of her heroes.
Lillian was such a wonderful character. Ms. MacLean has a knack for creating strong, leading females. I felt for the predicament that Lilly found herself in. It's crazy the nonsense women had to go through and the double standards they had to face. She found the strength to face it all. I loved her spunk and tenacity. She was wonderful!
I can't say enough about how all sorts of awesome this book was. Ms. MacLean knows how to pen a fantastic novel!...more

Although it was slow to start, it eventually picked up towards the end. Fiona is not part of the Wilder family, but she might as well be. I loved her relationship with everyone. Usually when people divorce, they don’t normally get along with the ex’s or their family all of the time.
Enter Mike, who is Jackson’s best friend…and Fiona’s ex-husband. So Mike feels she’s off limits. That only holds him back for so long, though. When Fiona needed renovations done to her bakery, Mike was there to help, and with all the time they were spending together, they grew pretty closer and closer.
I am looking forward to seeing what else Ms. Terry has in store for us in this series. Now I just have to wait until July for the next one!...more
