From Publishers Weekly
Family, loyalty, love, sex and revenge steam up the pages in this sometimes frustrating but ultimately satisfying romance set in present-day Alabama. Bestselling author Howard (After the Night) portrays orphan Roanna Davenport, born into a wealthy and aristocratic family. An awkward child, headstrong and generally disliked by her haughty relatives, she is championed by her older cousin Webb Tallant, with whom she falls in love. But he marries another cousin, the beautiful, heartless Jessie. When Jessie is murdered, Webb leaves the ancestral home for 10 years until the family's dying matriarch summons him back, reawakening old passions and reopening old wounds. Unnecessary bouts of crude sex between minor characters may put off some readers, and a good shaking seems in order for both Roanna and Webb, as they misinterpret each other's actions to excess. Howard does manage, however, to maintain tension through a twist-filled plot and the emotional involvement of the main characters.

Boring. The heroine is so wimpy that I wanted to slap her more than once. It does have a HEA.
But I would skip this book unless you are on a desert island with nothing else to read.
The ending was an incredible shocking surprise and while I can usually see things miles away, I had to take a moment for the "wow.....!" factor.
I loved the characters, as always Linda Howard has the best, though if they just sat down and had certain conversations years and years ago things would have gone smoothly. Yet, we wouldn't have had a book to read! (Well, perhaps we would but without all the tension stuff in between.)
Not one of my favorites, but still a decent story that breaks the mold and there's nothing wrong with that at all.
Otherwise, this is one of the best Linda Howard books I've read. The main character, Roanna, will bring tears to your eyes. The way she is treated as she grows up is realistic in its simplicity and just breaks your heart. The story is solid and the character development is excellent.
Sadly these mistakes disrupt the enjoyment of the book. I often had to reread a paragraph to understand what it really meant.
This isn't the fault of the author. It's the fault of whoever creates the e-book
