    Where is the Ending

    Could have been a good story, but the story just stopped. A complet waste of time. 108 pages that should have taken on more than 50 pages at best.

    Must be good..

    Must be good, because a sec after finishing this book I bought the sequel. This book is well written, easy to follow the characters, and so far has kept my attention. Which is hard to do. I recommend this book to all who love historical romance books.

    more from this reviewer

    Good, fairly clean for adult reading

    This could be the beginning of a great series but through events so far it could become rather steamy.
    This would not be recommended to Young Adults but it is written fairly clean.
    It is in an old England setting and involves those intending to embark a voyage to the colonies.
    I enjoyed the prelude and can only hope the next in the series is cleanly written.
