This book is definitely different from Medeiros' other books, mostly in the actions of the hero and heroine. I guess in today's world, you could say Gareth was mean bordering on abusive toward the heroine at some points in the novel. But he also displays lovely acts of generosity, passion, and kindness to her as well. The beautiful blonde heroine, Rowena, is not like most romance novel heroines today-- the cliched 'fiery, stubborn woman'-- she was more complacent and accepting of the injustices Gareth presented her with. But this type of heroine is to be admired as well, as you can see why she acts the way she does when you learn about her upbringing. She has an optimistic strength that fits very well with Gareth's dark, brooding nature. When these two finally fall in love, it will make you sign with contentment. The chemistry and love scenes are definitely hot. And I love the Medieval setting of the story.

Not at all what I thought. The hero was good but the heroine was not to my liking at all. She just reminds me of a little girl all the time, maybe it was the way the author described her. She also makes stupid decisions in the book. However I do love the dialogues in the novel; they were funny, cute, and very romantic. The plot was ggood but it is slow to begin with. If you like a book with lots of wit, charm, and a long plot with a child-like heroine this would be the book for you.
