Well written and immediately engaging.

I was very impressed with this novel. I was wary at first due to the Harlequin-esque cover but the writing quality, plot and character development pleasantly surprised me. Really good romance, over 900 pages (without becoming tedious).

horrid

I was only able to read the first 5 chapters. The most long-winded book I have ever tried. This author has a hard time getting to the point. Over 900 pages. I couldnt make it past page 197

    It's ok

    When it comes to historical romance, the medieval time period is my favorite. I also love a brooding hero. Gunnar was a fantastic main character. I loved that he tried to pretend to be a hard, relentless and ruthless warrior, whereas in reality he was a very decent and soft person, who struggled very hard to come to terms with what happened to him in the past. Raina was very likeable but less persuasive as a lead character, maybe because of her young age in combination with the limited life experience due to the way of living women had at that time. In any case, she just didn't live up to my expectations. I found this book to be more than a little on the dull side. Even though it is very well written, there wasn't too much there to keep my interest. I found my mind wandering while reading and having to go back and re-read a couple of pages. Not something that happens when I'm really involved in the storyline. Even the sex was...well, dull and formulaic. Overall, not horrible by any stretch, but also not the kind of book that keeps you captivated until the last page. I was easily able to put it down and wasn't anxiously waiting to get back to it.

    Horrible! With a tall "H"!

    I've spent so much wasted money on so many amateurish books so far. And this is one of them. Does anyone edit these books? Honestly, too long! Skipped page, after page after page. Never missed a THING. Now that is poor, very poor story writing! Heroine speaks in contrite language. After all she's been through she is "spunky" ? For real?! I love paranormal romance but the characters are BLAND they should totally be as interesting as the story. And the story, don't get me started....oh, I can't live without him her...insert action....of I hate him/her, oh I DO love him/her. Good God so I felt like a was reading from a formula template. I miss so much the talented writers who spent years crafting and perfecting their art and serving up a well constructed story with exceptional characters, well placed dialogue and excellent story. After spending all this money I feel so cheated and these websites who sell this sh@t should be ashamed! I didn't no strike that...I COULDN'T finish this lousy poor excuse for a story!
