This was a 2010 repub of a 1992 novel, so there was definitely tinges of dubcon and submission that I really wish had been edited slightly, because otherwise, this was pretty much perfect. Pretty angsty for a holiday book, but the usual misunderstandings that would have bogged down any other novel were neatly and directly addressed. There was logic! And understanding! And discussions! It was all pretty awesome. I really loved the Transome family and the joy they brought to every scene.

Rory I could have lived my whole long life without knowing what "dubcon" is. But now I do. THANKS A LOT.

Shelley Sorry! It kind of can come up a lot in fic and old-school romances.

Karey JUST finished reading this myself! The dubcon was very offputting, so an edit would have been delightful! The Transome were indeed awesome.
