    Horrible

    I thought this book was incredible boring. Nothing happens in it and the 'heroine' 'if we need to call her that' is pathetically weak. Neither of the main characters is likable or interesting. Do not waste your money.

    Questionable!

    Questionable! When I first this book I thought it was me who was having a hard time with it but I can see by the other reviews it was not me. The story line was good but the content within the story was not. It was a lot about the what was going on but not enough about the main characters. They warn Lenore not bring his brother death and I thought this is going to be a point of interest within the story but it wasn't. Lenore, somewhere at the beginning has a reason why she doesn't want to get married but it is never confronted. In stead of focusing on their problems there was all the functions she attended and him following. It was actually boring.

    love this book!

    this is one of my favorite books by Ms. Laurens, and I've read most of them. The heroine is kind of railroaded into marriage, but what I like is this is more from the hero's perspective than hers. And he doesn't really want to get married, but his brother (who was supposed to supply the next generation) is killed in battle. So he makes a list of qualities his wife must possess and narrows it down to one. She is happy with her life as it is. And so it begins....

    Average Stephanie Laurens

    Good story; pretty much standard Stephanie Laurens fare. Worth the money and time spent reading.

    Great story, but...

    Although this story was delightful and the characters well drawn, Harlequin dropped the ball by not using a unicode font for the "Nook" version. Every word that should have had a diacritical displayed either a series of numbers or with an embedded question mark. The reader has to infer the appropriate accents. This was quite distracting for what would have been an otherwise enjoyable read.

    Unique

    I found this book to be highly entertaining, and brought me back into the land of romance novels. I found the details to be great, and the characters to be refreshing on their thoughts and actions.
