Henke has written a wonderful story for those who love historical romance. The book was easy to read for me because the characterizations and the scenes are so well painted. I had put off reading this book while I read more familiar authors but now I will read her books as I come across them. There was mystery, sensuality that stoked my imagination, and romance. Yes Shelby and Olivia fight alot. Neither of them really know how to love. They learn. The intrigue is wonderful. I read the book in a day because I had to know the ending. Ms. Henke gave me an ending that made sense and satisfied. I recommend this for a great read. In the end, I wished I knew more about that time in history so that the book would have been more real for me but then perhaps my unfamiliarity with the period fed my hunger to get to the end. If you like to travel away from your present circumstance and you want a little sexy spice in your novel, read it and enjoy.
