Dina "I liked that he saw her when he couldn't see her (once you read it, you'll know what I'm talking about)."

Hmmm, I'm intrigued... I'll have to read this book someday.

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish I agree, Samantha, with your feelings. And I was very frustrated (and said so in my review) with the fact that the reader had to go to the website for the true happily ever after. That should never have to happen, but apparently it was the publishers issue with page count.

Samantha Dina, I think you might like it. I know I did but the ending was the killer for me.

Dhestiny, I understand the issues with the publishers and the author but leaving the book incomplete (and it was IMHO) was a bad move. Alot of people might have problems with that and a few other things that happened in the book. Plus, who wants to go to another site or source to get the HEA? It was too much work LOL!


UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish Samantha, I was really really pissed at the ending. That should never have to happen. It was totally incomplete without that epilogue and even though I was able to read it, I was already too upset to really enjoy it. While I'm thankful the epilogue was available to us at all, I think the publisher made a bad call on that one. A really bad call.

Adrienne Now I'm the opposite to you guys, I thought the ending was fine [but there again I am a huge Megan Hart fan so traditional HEAs are not a requirement for me:] and the epilogue, although sweet wasn't necessary reading for me. Sometims I like the emotion that comes with 'a door just falling quietly shut on a couple' I've been reading about:)

K. Samantha: Great review Samantha! :) I have to say that I'm another "Adrienne" and I thought the ending was "happy" for the REAL circumstances the characters lived! In fact, for me, I had no problems seeing it as an actual HEA. I was certain that Matthew and Jane were so determined and in love with one another ... nothing else could be imagined for them. Charlotte Featherstone is beginning to remind me more and more of an (even steamier) Judith Ivory. She writes very unconventional books with very REAL love stories. That's not for everyone I realize, but if I can't have "sweetly romantic," ... I want psychologically wrenching and deeply emotional LOVE! LOL! Those are the romances that stand out for me. Charlotte Featherstone is an "autobuy" for me ESPECIALLY if she continues to put her books on audio. They've been awesome.

Mostly Samantha ... THANKS for the reminder about going to her website for that epilogue ... I'd forgotten all about it! :D
K.

Samantha Haha! K, I can see that. I do realize that it made sense but I wanted Jane to have him in every way possible. I actually liked her character alot. Yes, the epilogue on her site will definitely warm you up. I was so happy :) I got addicted and I know I should have read that first but I can't wait to read it. I'm definitely going to read some more of her work.
