Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A delightful story line peppered with sharp repartee and steamy sensuality. Yet it is the change in the characters’ motivations that intrigues and charms readers, moving this novel onto that special spot on readers’ keeper shelves.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Delivers everything readers have come to expect from RITA Award–winning Kleypas, including insightful characterization, an abundance of super-charged sexual chemistry, a dash of dry humor, and a to-die-for hero.” Booklist (starred review)
“Intricately and elegantly crafted, intensely romantic, and with secondary characters and an epilogue that will leave readers anxiously awaiting more. A gratifying series starter from a not-to-be-missed romance author.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“A cadre of three-dimensional characters who captivate from the moment you meet them and a multi­layered plot that allows the characters to grow will keep fans intrigued by this addictive, rewarding story…[A] delightful, compelling story.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Narrator Mary Jane Wells’ rich voice immediately draws the listener in…Wells evocatively depicts the passion that arises between Devon and Kathleen and elicits laughs with the mischief that Devon’s cousins manage to get into…This is a perfect blend of narrator and story.” AudioFile
