Whenever I pass a bookstore sale where books are less than a dollar, I tend to pick up as many as possible. This is one of those books and not one that I would have ever purchased otherwise, and yet I am so glad that I read it.
I don't tend to read much romance/erotica, but would recommend this one. For an erotic novel, there was surprisingly few of these scenes and the author spent most of the book developing vivid characters and a complicated interplay of circumstance. Quilla had a wonderfully strong sense of tranquility that allowed her to comfort those all around her and Gabriel was a cantankerous and brooding but entirely likable fellow.
The dialogue was well written and believable: ". . . because I know the goodness of my heart and of my soul, I care little for those who denounce me out of their own insecurities." (p55)
