Livvie and Tobias are very interesting characters and honestly, I didn't like either one of them until almost halfway through the book. Livvie is first portrayed as willful, immature and reckless. Later in the book, she is more mature and while still a bit reckless, she doesn't come across to the reader as a spoiled child. Tobias is a total jerk at the beginning of the book, I understand ...more

This book was a delightful read. I enjoyed the interaction and banter between the two main characters. It is a good novel is being true to yourself and accepting a person for who they are and trying not to make yourself something you are not. The author wrote very well and kept me entranced.

The characters were strong, each set in their respective ways and completely unsuitable for one another. In fact, the banter between the two of them was easily my favorite part. I enjoyed watching them bicker just as much as I enjoyed watching them found in a compromosing way and the marriage that resulted. I also enjoyed the way that these characters grew as the story unfolded ...more

“hmm,” her husband muttered distractedly, and it was then she realized he had been inching her night rail from her shoulders. “I will talk no more of Westfall when I am trying to ravish my wife.” I really loved Olivia and Tobias, she was perfect for him.
This was a wonderful read and I would highly recommend it!
I loved the characters and thought both Olivia and Tobias were so refreshing. From start to finish I couldn't put it down. The story was well rounded and flowed wonderfully.
You do not have to read the first book to enjoy this story - although I highly recommend you do, as it is a fantastic read as well. I can't wait for the next book.
Scandal, drama, intrigue and passion. Life on a plate with all the dessert! This writer is magnificent in the way she creates a world for you to be immersed in. One that keeps you turning the pages. You are such a part of the story it is hard to surface. I truly enjoyed this book. It is a keeper. Her characters and plot lines are without a doubt fresh and creative. So buy the book and enjoy! I was given this book in return for an honest review. Anna
I loved it. Both the characters and the story are amazing. It's humorous, and romantic. I quite enjoyed it and would recommend to all historical fiction fans.
Detailed review to be added
She danced to the beat of her own drum - not her mother's, stepfather's, even stepbrother's. Or husband's, later on in the story. Her independent streak was constant, from the beginning to the end of the book.
But due to her wild and independent streak, it was hard for her to find a husband. Not that she wanted or needed one. She had it all figured out, in case of tragedy. But nobody was listening to her and after being sent off to learn some prop ...more

She stared into his eyes for a long moment, hating how distant they seemed. "You've been swimming."
"Yes. And it did not work."
"What did not work?"
"I still want you."
Her heart was in her throat. She had not expected such honesty. "That is why you've been swimming ... because you desire me?"
"And is that so terrible?"
She worked to contain her emotions. "Why?"
"I have never hungered for another woman the way I do you," he said. "I do not like it.”
"What I feel for you is beyond affection. At the crest of each dawn I think of being inside you. I write and you crowd my thoughts. I sleep and you are the last person I think of, and damn me if when I wake, you are not the first person I fucking look for. I think that borders on obsession wife, not mere affection.”
