This is Raven Kendrick's story. Yeah I know we thought she was all settled with the Duke of Halford. However, it wouldn't be a romance series if one of the characters married someone they couldn't come to love. I did feel sorry for Halford, especially, when he revealed that he really did care a great deal for Raven. I kind of wish that Ms. Jordan had written a HEA for him at some point. The man does seem to be a kind and gentle stuffed shirt and he was jilted twice in this series. This story also shows the unfairness that women were treated with during this era. I mean it isn't Raven's fault that some madman abducted and drugged her. Why does her reputation have to be ruin? Why does she and so many others have to suffer for ruination for something they had no control over.

Kell Lasseter is everything a alpha male should be. His caring and compassionate nature make him a unusual man in this time period, especially, with all that he has gone through in his life. He has risen above all the hardship and is a rich successful man. He one fault is that he so disparately wants to save his brother, Sean. Sean can't be saved though. There isn't anything that can help him in this time period, there is very little that can help him in this time period. Kell is consumed by guilt for the things that Sean has suffered and it is festering wound that will come to a violent and terrible end.

The main characters fight falling in love with everything that they are. I understand the series each one has but they can't seemed to see that love can overcome more than they think. It takes a terrible tragedy to make them see how fragile life is and that they should follow their hearts.

This is a quick read but there isn't much humor in it. Most of the love scenes are between Raven and her dream lover which are not as satisfying as the ones between Raven and Kell. Overall this is a very good story and a nice addition to the series. ( )

This book isn't bad. Although I realize that sex is an important part of romance novels, and I definitely don't want it taken out (by any means), I think that Jordan concentrates on the sex part a bit too much, to the detriment of the emotional relationship between her characters. Although this book is not as bad about this as "Passion," there's still not enough bonding between the characters in anything but a sexual manner. Anyway, the characters in this book are interesting and compelling, and the plot is interesting - definitely worth reading, but it would have been better if there had been a bit more emotional connection between the characters.

No character development, no plot - just sex. ( )
