    Not my cup of tea

    Marriage is a commitment no matter what the circumstances. While you should not stay in an abusive relationship you are married until you are divorced and should be faithful to your vows. Unfaithfulness is not romantic or justified.

    Excellent romance

    I found this book to be an excellent historical romance novel, especially for a freebie book. Cynthia Wicklund is an entertaining author that can make your pulse race along with the characters in her book. I would highly recommend this author.

    A good premise, well rounded characters

    In The Garden of Temptation by Cynthia Wicklund, the characters and plot are tightly woven and play well together. The only negative that I would attribute, is that at times--the sense of flow is disrupted by a bit too much unnecessary background information. I'm all for a story well built and on firm ground, but there are times when it can be a bit overdone.

    I look forward to reading more in the series and becoming involved with more of Ms. Wicklund's characters!

    Surprisingly Great!

    I'm pretty sure I got this as a freebie, so to be honest I didn't expect much. But the story got me wrapped up right away, and had enough suspence and sustinance to keep me reading right through the end. Don't let the cover decieve you, this isn't really a smut novel. Sure, it has a few steamy scenes, but they're tastefully done so your imagination is left to put it all together.
    Bottom line, I would recommend this book. It was a fun, easy read that I finished in two days' time.

    Great read

    I have to admit that I really enjoyed this story. The pages turned quickly and I kept finding myself sitting at my desk wishing the day to go by faster so I could get back to the story to see what happened next. I have not ever been a romance novel gal, but after a few of these good reads I am in line!

    Boring at times

    I found my self constantly passing pages. They spent time discribing thingd that werent important. Drove me nuts. I struggled with that and with how much the heroine would lack back bone. She was a mess.

    Great book!!!

    I came across this book a couple of weeks ago in electronic format. I read the four books of the series in a week period and it was a very pleasant experience. This was my first time reading anything from Cynthia Wicklund and I can say I enjoy myself tremendously.
