Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Kathy B
A delightful little tale...with well drawn characters. Once again Ms. Ocean has written a novel that pays exquisite attention to historical detail, and delivers delightful characters (even the unlikeable ones are fun). Lusty sex scenes that aren't overly graphic add to the playful feel of this story.
