What a FABULOUS HISTORICAL ROMANCE!
This is the second book I've read by author Gwendoline Ewins and I can honestly say she does an EXCELLENT job of penning a very romantic historical book. It took me a few pages to get into the story, but after that I was totally hooked. First off, I loved the setting; it took place on a small Polynesian Island called Makatea. Gwendoline use of descriptive words had me totally envisioning the island, the people and their way of life.
The story line was very well done and it had many moments that touched my heart. There were some sad times for the in the beginning for the heroine, Charity, and I LOVED how the hero, Sebastian, was there for her in her time of need. Their relationship did not start right away and as a matter of fact Charity did not have a good opinion of him at first. As they got to know each other she realized just how wrong her thinking was. I loved reading how they became friends, then lovers. Their everyday life on Makatea was a joy to read about.
I felt both Charity and Sebastian were well thought out characters. I LOVED them and enjoyed reading how much their relationship grew over the course of this book.
The thing that grabbed me most about this book was the way the romance was done. Some of the things that were said and done between Charity and Sebastian took my breath away, positively lovely!
There were many of loves scenes as these two became closer, but the details were left mostly to our imagination. Despite this, I have to say, the sensuality was definitely there. I really felt the love these two had for each other growing as the pages turned.
Of course every good romance has to have a misunderstanding or two. The big misunderstanding came near the end of the book, and happily it did not get too out of hand before all was explained and forgiven.
The ending was indeed a very happy one, I was grinning ear to ear and I really did sigh as the book came to a conclusion. The only thing I felt was missing was an epilogue. Not having an epilogue did not affect the way this book made me feel about it, but it would have really been lovely if we could have had just a glimpse into Charity and Sebastian’s future.
Those of you who LOVE reading historical romances, I URGE you to give this book a try. I’m sure you will not be disappointed.
Although I liked the story, it was quite slow. It really was like it was the pace of the slower life on an Island paradise. It is a pace that I personally didn't enjoy as much, even though I know Sebastian and Charity were trying to get to know each other and that takes time. . The author did a good job of painting a picture of the Island, its people and some of their culture. I liked the unusual idea of the story and both Sebastian and Charity, they both had their own wounds from life. There was also a sweet innocence to the story too.
I accepted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review."
