A funny and romantic book!
This book had me laughing outloud many times! The main characters are Duncan and Marsali. The supporting characters are a bunch of well meaning, good hearted, but not so bright folks. The trouble they get into with Marsali...I enjoyed this book and I'm a picky reader.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Bad, Bad, Bad
I'm a great fan of Jillian Hunter, but this is not a very good book. It's so bad in fact, that I could barely slog through it. There is no reason to like or even care about the two main characters. Marsali's behavior is irrational and irritating (going fishing in a gold tulle ball gown??). Duncan is not much better (a successful general sitting on the floor playing with and talking to tin soldiers??). An attempt seemed to be made to make the secondary characters cutesy and oddball, but they were simply paper-doll flat. The plot dragged along at a snail's pace with jarringly abrupt leaps forward by weeks with little or no exposition to bring the reader along. All-in-all a singularly bad book. I usually donate my paperbacks to the local library, however this one went straight to the trash can. No one should be subjected to this level of tripe. As a matter of fact, this book is so bad that I can hardly believe it was written by Jillian Hunter. In spite of this unfortunate tome, I highly recommend her more recent books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

One of the best I have ever read!!
I am addicted to reading romance novels, and of all of them this had to be the most interesting, book I have ever read. It was funny, loving, magical, it was everything I enjoy in my books. I commend the writer.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
