I have read other books by Ms Cabot and thoroughly enjoyed them. I started off liking this one because I thought I knew where it was heading (which is always dangerous because only the author knows where a book is truly going). It did not take me very long to begin to dislike the way Kate had of expressing part of a thought to herself and then, as a tease, going no further and leaving me dangling. If an author reveals too much too soon there is no more mystery, or confusion, or situation which our heroine needs to clear up. If an author does not reveal enough and leaves readers hanging too often, it gets frustrating. I got frustrated.
A really big problelm for me was that I did not like Burke. He was way too violent for me. Not just the suggestion of an ability to becomme violent but actual fighting, hitting, hurting people, breaking things, and killing people (yes, killing). He knew he had a terrible temper and had to keep it under control but Ms. Cabot had him smashing things and people up every time he got the chance.
I also did not like Kate. She supposedly had all these scruples and values yet she jumped into bed with him almost instantly. Yes, she left after their first encounter but she had to....the author made it happen so fast we weren't even to the half-way point in the book! From then on, it was nothing but an excuse to describe violence on his part until he found her and then sex over and over once they were reunited.
Also, a very thin excuse for a mystery. If an author does not have enough material for the main characters to fill a book, why do they throw in a "mystery"? It must be very hard to write something convincing because most "mysteries" incorporated into historical romances are just not very interesting.
Now I've had my say. You may not agree but at least you have been warned.
But I did not like the hero, and after awhile, the story just got boring, tedious and not worth my time. I finished the book, but I wish I hadn't.
