First, the author uses words for which she does not know the meaning, such as alight and vulgar. I realize these aren't even SAT caliber words so you'd expect a person who considers themselves an author to know the meanings, but this one doesn't. Then there are some very basic grammar problems. Has no one ever taught this woman how to use a comma? Does she have an editor? The writing ends up stilted because Ms. Notariani strings together words that don't belong together or make sense.
Also, while in the point of view of one of our main characters, Mariel, the author has the character describe the color of her own cheeks. Problem is that she isn't looking in the mirror. She and her hero must also be mind-readers because they always seem to know what the other is thinking and feeling without any dialogue between the characters. This is a serious point of view problem, which any avid reader should have caught, let alone an editor. Then there are the laughable errors, such as the unfortunate innuendo when the hero draws his short blade to cut his own leg.Read more ›
I was drawn in from the very first chapter. Mariel, our leading lady, is such a great character and what I loved about her was that she was strong-willed. Yes, she did need saving. Yes, she did what she was ordered too, but there is some part of her that doesn't conform to the ideas around her. She thinks for herself and it was great to see her interaction with her husband.
So, we come to Gervase. He's mysterious and dangerous, and I was curious about his character from the beginning. Was he a murderer? What did he want with Mariel? Was he going to hurt her? Nadja Notariani answers all our questions in due time and I was satisfied with what I learned. The steamy scenes are written well but, keep in mind, this is a book for adults not teens. When Mariel and Gervase consummate their marriage, it is well worth the wait.
A mystery kicks in midway and I'd already made my deductions about who was behind it. I ended up being half wrong so that left me feeling surprised. It was a well-incorporated plot twist so I have to give Ms Notariani points for that. The side characters weren't just there for the sake of being there. They each had a purpose and a strong personality, and were memorable in their own way, especially Baron Flanders. I appreciate how difficult this must be considering it is a novella and there is a limit on words.
The only thing I wished was different was that it had been a full length novel instead of a novella. I was so absorbed by this world that I didn't want to leave so soon.Read more ›
It was an okay read; I know the setting is in the 1600's, however, the boating plot would not take CSI to figure out - what was the villian thinking??? But you'll see - it was certainly some tom foolery on the villian's part. I hope there is more of the Baron in future books. I rather liked him.

I like this book, it was okay. The story was obvious, you can read it in one day, you can not connect with the characters.Published on February 12, 2014 by Elizabeth Chico
Romantic; such an accurate word! I was so emotionally attached to the characters, I was disappointed when I came to the last page!Published on November 26, 2013 by Alex
Her Dark Baron was my favorite read from Nadja so far. The story was sexy and kept me wanting more.Published on September 12, 2013 by Jess
Good book. You liked the baron right away, but we're suspicious of his 'disappearing'. Good read. Watching the care start between the two was interestingPublished on January 26, 2013 by beachgirl
