(3.5*) Anne Stuart delivers a great romance. She is one of the few authors I have read who can blend characters from past novels and set up a new plot without making the transition tedious of forced. I must admit I was emotionally involved with the complex relationship between Neddie, Benedict Rohan, and the virgin-like widow, Melisande. I love her name! I Also appreciate Stuart's tasteful book covers...Beautiful play of colors and models blended like paintings, sensual but not to overtly sexual. My one complaint is that Neddie, unlike the elder Rohan's and The Scorpion, does not have enough of the controlled alpha male for my taste. He comes off more selfish in a cruel way rather than dominating assurance I prefer. Melisande could have cut him off at the legs and then have him grovel, but I suppose that would have made the novel to long.
