Had some Good Points

Much better than her book "Bared to you". However if you are looking for great historical fiction I recommend Stephanie Laurens. If you are looking for hot steamy bedroom scenes try Toni Blake. Sylvia is OK, she is just not as great as the above mentioned authors.

The story line was good, the characters were alright but the bedroom scenes were a little lacking.

    Not Sylvia Day's usual quality I usually love books by Sylvia Da

    Not Sylvia Day's usual quality
    I usually love books by Sylvia Day, and find it a chore to put them down. I am a huge fan of her historical romances because of their intensity. This book however, read in such a slow manner. Every conversation that didn't involve the hero and heroine seamed to drag along at a snails pace. There were quite a few secondary characters, but none of them had enough depth to allow me to care about their welfare. The love scenes between Jasper and Eliza were hot and no less than I have come to expect from Day. Her love scenes are hot because both parties are not just expressing lust/desire for one another, but something stronger that runs much deeper. Day writes with so much passion, that it feels as if the characters need each other in order to survive. This book would have been a 4 or 5 star if more time had been spent with the couple or if the secondary characters and plot had been more interesting.

    Captivating story but ended upbruptly

    I was truly engaged by the story and characters (and the romantic scenes of course), and kept reading and waiting for the story to take me away. But it never happened. The end of the story comes quickly, rushed almost, leaving me unsatisfied. Ok read to pass the time, but that is all.
