The sight of Cory, Lord Newlyn, rising naked from the Midwinter river, is enough to send ripples of shock through Rachel Odell's carefully ordered life. He has always been a friend, although now she's aware of him as a man--an exceedingly handsome man. But she can't possibly entertain romantic ideas about this adventure seeker...and rogue.
It does appear that Cory is waging a deliberate campaign to seduce her. What is his true intent? Can he simply wish to claim his best friend as his bride...?

The author spends a lot of pages in a repetitive examination of the couple's feelings which often end with the same conclusion. This slowed the action of the story. I found myself laboring to finish the book. I'm cautiously optomistic about the other two books in the series since I've already purchased them.
