Not only do I love this author, but I fell in love with this cover at first glance!  It is so romantic and the blue/cream/red color combination was gorgeous! 

The author is back with her usual witty and graceful writing that I have come to love!  Each character in the book came to life in my mind and each one had a special reason for being in my heart as I read it.  Honoria  was a great character that I loved reading about. Marcus was charming and I found him to be swoon worthy in this book.  While I enjoyed the story and the characters very much, I was a little disappointed in the lack of WOW factor in the book.  It was a fun and easy read, but their wasn’t much climatic points to surprise the reader.  It went at a leisurely pace and filled the void between other reads.

While it wasn’t my favorite book by this author, it was one that left me remembering the characters and their personalities.  If you are a fan of the author then you need to add this one to your reading line-up.


Okay book, but it left me wanting more!
