I believe it’s safe to say Ms. Butcher is an expert in creating bitchy heroines that can overshadow a plot in the blink of an eye. Not that there was a very interesting plot in this one. Coupled with a bitchy heroine (headstrong and proud is good until that fine line toward annoying bitch-land is crossed), a hero that had tall, dark and brooding in the jungle down to a T (despite some pretty deep insight he didn’t have much going on, if you ask me), jumping from place to place and POV to POV, a convoluted “mystery”, and some daddy issues that could’ve been resolved years ago if the heroine wasn’t such a bitch.

This first in the series will also be the last one for me.

Zeek Word. Making a heroine strong doesnt mean you have to make her a bitch. Unfortunately many authors cant tell the difference.

The only person who likes a bitch personality is the person displaying it.

Mojca Couldn't agree more.

MelissaB I tried the first book in her paranormal series and it was bad too. The heroine drove me nuts.

Jen I am always seeing this cover around. Thanks for the review because now I know to avoid it!

BJ Rose So it sounds like this is an author I can pass up.
