Know What You're Getting Into

This book is exactly all that I expected. A wonderful romp into romance novels filled with a number of different tropes that give the reader of that day exactly what they wanted. A strong, forceful, unconventional, bueatiful, firey, intellegent woman who is thrown into a billion situations that she cannot control and has to adapt to. The hero, who you're never sure is half the time, is, by turns, smart, handsome, controlling, angry, in love, in lust, demanding, charming, violent, soft, and (above all) Alpha.

These tow are surrounded, most of the time, by loving, loyal, understanding, and entertaining family, servants, and friends.

The turns that happen in this novel may seem harsh, but I can't help but feel that it's realistic (to an extent) to the times. Obviously blow out of proportion with it all pertaining to one person, but still believable nontheless.

What you really have is a stong, independant woman who comes through amazing events against the odds and, though she grows and changes throught the novel, she is still the same core person you met when she was born.

If you can't handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen, but if you're willing to wade though the deep and dark waters to come out shining on the other side, you will enjoy this book.
