This book was... okay. It was fast-paced and the beginning of the novel started out with promise. However, by the middle of the book I was bored. Once the characters get married, the 'hero' virtually disappears. For about a hundred pages, or so, I don't believe the herione has more than one conversation with him. She spends all of her time with another man, who, in my opinion, was more interesting than the main male character, Lord Brant. Actually, Lord Brant was rather shallow and insensitive. (Honestly, the number of times he referred to her 'luscious, little body' or 'delectable, little body' were eye-rolling-inducing at best.) That leads to the other problem I had with the book. The author tries to convey steamy physical chemistry, but doesn't really succeed. Though these characters seem to spend a lot of time in bed, I didn't really feel the attraction. That is, perhaps, because the author never delves too deeply into anything in this story. There was not enough description of places, events, nor situations. Character development was sadly lacking. The main characters have a few (very short) sparring conversations, then suddenly they're sleeping together. I never really understood why these two were attracted to each other, why they would fall in love with each other. And in the end, I didn't really care. There are a lot of really good romance novels out there: Lisa Kleypas, Liz Carlyle and Sabrina Jeffries, to name a few.

This was a good easy read. I did find Victoria a bit annoying, she alsways made the same mistake. You would thingk she would learn that she shouldn't go out on her own. The guys looked for help to rescue Cord's cousin, but Tory thought she needed no one to help her.
