I would definitely recommend this to readers with high emotional sensitivity and maturity. For a book of this genre and stereotypical label, I think the author was able to raise the bar slightly. Characters were nicely rounded with no dramatic shifts in personality (i.e. 180 degree changes or out of character events). Love was acquired slowly and each step towards that ultimate goal was definitive. The female protagonist put me a little off at times since I could not clearly see any improvement in her role as lady of the house as she was when she lived her in father's keep. Connor, however, was an exceptional character and I do appreciate the humane view of love that will never die, but one is able to learn to find within himself the ability to love again. The plot was complex organization of typical plots, but I do think the high emotional stimulation gave it originality. The book could have gotten 5 stars for me if secondary characters that were placed under emphasis were to be given an ending (i.e. Rurik and his past including his discomfort around Rhona; Duncan) unless the title was to be serialized.

    not romantic!

    141 pages in to a book of 204 pages in length and his romantic feelings are still not there. By then you don"t care for his charactor at all. hiHis unwanted bride cannot even garner any compassion when her mother dies. Came away from this one just wishing the heroine could have left him.
