I read this book several years ago and was excited to finally be able to find it and read it again. Yes it is erotic; however, there is an extra element of surprise as it marries patient endurance and chastity with passionate love. I'm not really into romance that includes the betrayal of one lover for another one, which is another reason this novel stands out for me, since it is entirely absent of this. Even what may appear to be a betrayal is more of a severing of old and rather loose habits; this in trade for the stability of true devotion is benefitial to all. Apparently, Woodwiss created a whole new type of the historical romance genre with this, her first novel! It holds a quality that is often absent in other romance novels. I would highly recommend this tender morsel!

IF you can get beyond the beginning of the book, you might find romance here, but the rape of an already abused virginal young girl by a man who shows no remorse and smugly decides to keep her as his mistress had me turned off from the onset. All romance characters have issues to resolve, but I really don't think this is one so easily overcome as the writer would have you believe. Physical and verbal abuse turned into everlasting love in a few short pages? A little twisted, I thought.
