    I loved loved loved this book. It is really hard to find a good book to read and the fact that it was free was even better. The authors writing reminded me of Bertrice Small earlier work. I like the way she worked the love triangle. Both men are honorable but have their faults. It wasn't a clear cut choice for the heroine. I can wait for the next book to find out how everything comes together. alot of questions left unanswered.

    WOW! WOW! WOW!

    With 1185 pages, this story is packed full of well developed characters, murder, blackmail and hot sex. Very well written and can't wait for the next book to this story!

    Amazing!

    I loved this book! I couldnt put my nook down to save my own life while reading it! The characters were great. The two main men in the story made me hate them one minute and love them the next. You also develop a true hatred for Lilly! When I first started reading I was a little overwhelmed about the page count being at a whopping 1185! But I flew through it because it was such a great story with so many twists it kept you interested. Amazing book that I would recommend to everyone!

    BORING

    This book had way too many different plots to follow, too many horrors befall the heroine yet she manages to survive child birth that basically leaves her feverish and bleeding profusely complicated with a bullet to the head and a dive in frigid water. One of the main heroes is an utter jerk and the plots are so complicated it gives you a headache to try and follow. It is not surprising this book is free

    I loved this book. I think anybody who doesn't obviously likes traditional predictable books with 'missionary' aims and outcomes. I think the characters are SUPPOSED to be bad. Look at the title! I read some of the reviews and laughed. I read it in like one day and lost sleep. It's not boring at all and for the other reviews who say it is, consider the source. They expected a Harlequin obviously. Found minor errors I found in print books. All in all a GREAT read and escape. Her second book in this series is AWESOME too. So don't be a hater. LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT! So there to you one star haters, virgin-hording, Harlequin level freaks who didn't.

    Long and wierd

    The story was very long. It's plot started off okay but just got weird. No lady could be that beautiful that evry man that sees her falls for her. They make one of the main characters be so smart then so dumb when it comes to his coniving wife. Come on... the sad thing was it was so weird i had to read it through

    Loved it!

    I loved this book. This is the second book of the authors I have read. I only have one issue with it as I did her last book. I really hate how she has ended this book I was disappointed with ending as I was with the ending of Taken.

    Honestly, it was 100,000 words too long. There was no detail in anything
    other than clothes and the men, the same description of the men, over
    and over. The story COULD have had something there but it was lost in
    all of the people and how NOTHING seamlessly blended together. It was as
    if the author just say AA HA! THAT WOULD BE COOL! and wrote it down. I
    found the Main Character extremely annoying, and the males were no
    better. Loving someone isn't sleeping with a mistress...even back in the
    day. The only saving grace was the author did make a villain you could
    hate, but she was so over the top that it was very unbelievable and
    distracted from the story. There was no subtly to the villain, Liliane,
    and even a naive little sister would have instantly seen through the BS
    in the beginning so it made the main character hard to root for because
    she was so blah and unintelligent.

    A disjointed story

    Too many complicated plots. Some parts did not make sense, and there were way too many grammatical errors! Where was your editor? Could have been a good story and written in 350 pages.

    Excellent!

    This is one of the best free books I have read. I would like to see this book made into a movie. This book has everything thing in it for a reader to sit back and enjoy. I could not put this book down. Highly recommend.

    VERY HARD TO FOLLOW!

    I struggled to read this book and couldn't wait to reach the end, just so it would be OVER!. While I enjoy a book with twists and turns, this one had a lot of things that just seemed implausible. I found it very confusing, and just didn't enjoy reading it. I will say the overall storyline, was somewhat interesting. But this is not a book I'd recommend. The writing is so-so (not great, not horrible), and the characters seem to be all over the place (not true to themselves throughout the entire book).It appears there will be a follow-up book, as the writer left it open to that possibility, but I won't be wasting my time with it.

    Great concept

    I liked the idea of this story but felt it dragged on for too long with too many unnecessary details. I also did not like how the scenes jumped so quickly that I was confused on what was happening. I think this book would be even better if it were edited for grammatical errors and cut down by a couple of hundred pages. I would also like the main character Catherine to show some more backbone I felt that after a third of the book she became more of a background character.

    Very good read...(took a while though)

    Though I admit it took me a while to get into this book it was a great read. The characters are rich and detailed and makes you want a follow up of "their" story

    So far...

    I am 369 pages in and I don't see myself finishing it. The main character, who is meant to be spirited, comes across as a ditz at times and obstinate at others. The character dynamics were excruciatingly annoying. A balance of all male characters lusting after Catherine. Her decisions seem unrealistic. She questions her sisters motives from the beginning and yet does not attempt to find the truth for herself before thinking rationally.

    I will not say it is the worst I have seen but I doubt I will finish it.
