Now Samantha enjoys creating her own happy-endings for characters that spring from her imagination. Publisher's Weekly describes her stories as "fresh and romantic" with subtle humor and charm. Samantha describes romance writing as the best job ever.

Still I respect most authors efforts, I probably would have given it a 4 star, but hero is often described as doing ANYTHING for the love of his Amelia, yet when push comes to shove, his love seems cheap. Example: Amelia runs away to the country somewhere and he is "desperate" to find her, and yet will not venture to far to search for her. Or when they are about to marry and he ponders to himself how he would give "HALF" of his fortune to have her, (not "ALL"?).
Hero bordered on week, heroine bordered on high-maintenance. Secondary characters Bibi and Norwick seemed deeper, more complicated and interesting, yet their story is not given it's due.
kind of dissapointed because it had potential. Sorry but would not reccommend it.
I also can't wait to read Daniel's story! Starting it next tonight. :)
