I swept through this one, rather disappointed. First of all, it's actually a middle book in a series, so I didn't get the references to anything that came before this book. It doesn't lend itself well to being a stand alone book. It's also pretty predictable as a plotline, more like a Harlequin romance than a historical fiction, which is what it sounded like. It also NOWHERE classified itself as Christian fiction, which is exactly what it was. Now, if you are INTO that genre, you'll like the book, but go back & read the series from the beginning or you'll be disappointed. I'm not into that, & found the repeated references to religion tedious & a total turn off.

Other than that, Nicole, the main female character, is a pretty nice lady, if too stupid to tell her man how she felt about him just because he wasn't a religious man at the beginning of the book

BORING! ( )
