I love this book
on February 8, 2016
I love this book. I have read it countless times. There are essentially two love stories in this book, and my one complaint would be that Ramsey's love story took too much of a back seat. I would have liked to see more of his love story, I think there was a great possibility for another whole story that we missed out on. But unless someone can convince the author to do a rewrite or add on for this book we are stuck. :(
I loved the h in this book, she was not rude or naggy in order to appear strong. She was brave and her acts defined that and she didn't think she was strong while very obviously being strong. She didn't feel the need to prove herself she just was what she was. There are no great misunderstandings in this book that create drama for the sake of drama to try and build up to the climax. The h and H communicated well and thought the H was stubborn she didn't just let him have his way. She did what she knew needed to be done despite what he thought.
I will say that I thought she fell in love with him a little fast and I didn't like that she asked him to join her to Ramsey's I feel like it was a little conflicting with how her character was written and could have been done a little better, but it didn't really deter from the story and she certainly made up for it.
This book is worth the read it is not focused on sex and blah blah though is does have a couple love scenes that aren't too graffic. This book truly focuses on a story. Not just two people lusting for each other but rather it hostess and entire cast of well written characters and a sound plot that are the foundation of a good wholesome story. I reread this book often, my favorite part is where she is getting her wounds tended at the beginning of the book. I love her bravery and selflessness and her determination to control the situation when everyone around her is trying to take her control away. The story is humorous and still romantic without the over lavishing on the character's feelings and emotions. You know what I'm talking about. Like those books where the author spends pages describing ones heart palpitations at the sight of the other. BORRING.
This book offers just enough details on their feeling to be appreciative and understanding to their feeling without the urge to skip over paragraph after paragraph to get to the action. I love Julie Garwood she is a talented author and I hope she starts writing more historical fiction soon.
