** spoiler alert ** In searching for free books for my Kindle, I stumbled upon this one. I have to say - for free, it's a bargain, especially compared to the other free books I've encountered. It's entertaining, and a fast read. The plot is predictable, the characters fit a bit too nicely into their molds, and Tessie's inability to realize how Christian feels is hard to swallow. I spent a good part of the novel rolling my eyes because, come on - he did everything short of screaming it at her.

That said, the writing style is fluid and very readable. The dialogue is believable. The relationships are strong and also believable, for the most part. I easily fell in love with Christian. Had the on-again/off-again relationship between Tessie and Christian been tamed a bit, I'd have given this four stars for sure.

I'd consider reading more of her work.
