The novel is lovely. I liked the villain and all the secrets attached, it was very stimulating, well pictured and the introduction in the plot of whom I think might be the hero of the next story in the series (I can't wait!) was very entertaining.
The hero here is very sweet for most of the story, I mean, at the beginning he is presented as that kind of character that is truly on the edge between a charming dark manly man and a jerk, however then, because of an accident, we see the most caring side of him, which always melts my heart. I'm all about a sweet hero in my HRs.
The heroine is also lovely, with strong principles, which I appreciate very much in a character. Sometimes a tad too dragging with the guilty feeling, but it is within natural behaviour, not too dramatised.
It is a romance worth reading, like all Meredith Duran's novels. I cannot say in all honesty that this is my favourite one, but nevertheless I would warmly suggest it.
