This book is wonderful. All the bad things happened in the past so we only see them in the memories of the two characters. Their reminiscences don't take too many pages which is great. I am not a fan of the stories that tell you something bad will happen and then proceed to drag the events which lead to the disaster.

The story starts years after their separation. He comes to bring her back to England because her father is ill. The trip through India and danger reveals that both still have a lot to give. It shows that they haven't really knew each other before. Most of it is a surprise to both.

The thing is, there is that ugly event which caused most of their problems and I like how there wasn't any justification. Some things cannot be justified no matter what. It was not some horrible mistake and misunderstanding.

I didn't expect to love both characters this much. It reminds me of surprisingly great [b:Mr. Impossible|132606|Mr. Impossible (Carsington Brothers, #2)|Loretta Chase|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1309284255s/132606.jpg|127735]. Not the same kind of story but there too both characters are great. ( )

Wonderful story, wonderful historical details. ( )

One of the better novels in this genre. The characters were fairly well developed overall. Once again the story fizzled towards the end. Or was wrapped up a bit too neatly. And there was way too much reliance on "miscommunication" as a plot device.

SPOILER ALERT

It was difficult to believe the heroine NEVER confronted the hero on his pre-maritial/post-engagement infidelity that she personally witnessed, until he literally pushed her to tell him years later, after a long separation.

Other than that, one of the better offerings. ( )

Me habría gustado (a pesar de que pasa esa palabra que empieza con cuer y termina con -nos) si la autora no hubiese puesto tantas escenas (Alerta: Temas adultos) de sexo con gente dormida: primero el marido la despierta con sexo, consciente de que ella está enojada con él, aunque el no sepa porqué--y tampoco creo que pueda considerarse sexo, porque tal implica consentimiento de las dos partes y, estando una dormida, no lo hay... igual es punto medio gris en esta caso, porque tampoco sé SI EN ESTE CONTEXTO DE FICCIÓN ROMÁNTICA pueda considerarse una violación, porque los dos lo disfrutan.....*suspiro* Me frustró bastante la novela, odio las escenas de este estilo. Por un lado, sé que hay gente, gente real, que disfruta de ese estilo de sexo; pero, por otro, yo lo encuentro ... bue, todo lo contrario de gustar. Por eso dudo, y por eso, esta novela me frustró demasiado....

En fin, como venía escribiendo, primero el marido, y después la mujer le hace lo mismo! Y son así al menos, muuuuchas escenas entre ambos. De ahí mi asquito, como dije previamente, porque si bien sé que hay personas que disfrutan de esas prácticas sexuales, creo que mi horror con esta historia tiene más que ver con gustos personales.

No sé si me explico, a lo que voy es que no son escenas de violencia (no como la escena infame de [b:This Heart of Mine|73100|This Heart of Mine (Chicago Stars, #5)|Susan Elizabeth Phillips|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1391625031s/73100.jpg|1088958]), pero que a mi igual me pusieron los pelos de punta y, después de cada una, no me pude concentrar del todo en la historia y menos que menos, simpatizar con sus protagonistas.


En fin, creo que en este caso, mi desagrado es más personal que otra cosa. ( )

Getting a finished draft out of me takes a good editor.
Making me cheerfully commit to start-over-from-scratch revisions takes a great editor.
Getting a revised book out of me twice as good as what I started with takes an extraordinary editor.

This book is dedicated to Caitlin Alexander, my extraordinary editor.
First words
Prologue
In the course of her long and illustrious career, Bryony Asquith was the subject of numerous newspaper and magazine articles, almost all of which described her appearance as distinguished and unique, and unfailingly commented upon the dramatic streak of white in her midnight dark hair.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553592432, Mass Market Paperback)

Sherry Thomas is one of the hottest new voices in historical romance, garnering the highest praise from today’s bestselling writers (“Entrancing.” —Mary Balogh; “Ravishingly sinful, intelligent and addictive.” —Eloisa James). Now Sherry delivers this powerful story of a remarkable woman and the love she thought she’d never find—with the man she thought she’d lost forever.…

Their marriage lasted only slightly longer than the honeymoon—to no one’s surprise, not even Bryony Asquith’s. A man as talented, handsome, and sought after by society as Leo Marsden couldn't possibly want to spend his entire life with a woman who rebelled against propriety by becoming a doctor. Why, then, three years after their annulment and half a world away, does he track her down at her clinic in the remotest corner of India?

Leo has no reason to think Bryony could ever forgive him for the way he treated her, but he won’t rest until he’s delivered an urgent message from her sister—and fulfilled his duty by escorting her safely back to England. But as they risk their lives for each other on the journey home, will the biggest danger be the treacherous war around them—or their rekindling passion?
