I enjoyed this book. The story was well structured. I love how St Albans falls in love with his Gypsy. How they both fight their feelings. He does everything to see her happy even if he might lose her. But like all love stories they end up together. I have read this book twice and enjoyed it both times.

Story is Okay, but could definitely have used better editing.

Slightly rough around the edges - don't care for over-repetition.
