I had some issues - namely that the heroine had major self-image issues and the author kept referring to her as "plump" when she was described as anything but, and also the hero was a complete ass for the first 1/2-3/4 of the book.

However, the author really turned it around for me. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed both characters at the end, and how glad I was to see them fall in love. I almost put the book down because of my frustrations, but I'm glad I finished it. ( )

As his attentions raise her passion, she ignores his disreputable past. But is he keeping secrets from her? And when his shocking betrayal becomes evident, can she ever forgive him? If you enjoy rags-to-riches themes and surprise twists, you’ll enjoy this charming historical romance. ( )
