I thought Serena was a good heroine, she was bold and I liked that. She was also compassionate and very likable but she was also a bit naive and self centered.
Jonah was a great hero - a bit tortured but not brooding. And of the three heroes in the series he seemed the least rakish - I liked that. I like a reformed rake as much as the next girl - but I have wondered how happy these heroines will be when every time they turn around they run into another woman their hero slept with...
The book did settle the whole treason threat hanging over Nate, Rhys and Jonah - with a nice little twist.
The two things that really kept the book from being a keeper where 1 - even though Jonah loved Serena and told several people - he NEVER told her (at least not that she was aware of), not once even when he was able to. 2 - no real epilogue - this was the end of a series, I want to know what happened to the others - I want to see the HEA I wanted to know if the heroes completely reconciled - did they all have kids etc.
All in all, a decent read and probably the best of the three. I would recommend reading all the books in order to really understand what is going on. It is well written and flows nicely. If you can get past the premise of the plot to ruin innocent women, the heroes will surprise you.
