About the Author

I had a few issues with the main romance - bearing in mind that the H has decided that the h is no innocent and so there is an incredible sexual tension between them, in a moment of passion he offers her a month as his mistress. The h was horrified at his behaviour because he wanted a quick affair before marrying and he diminishes her by referring to her dubious virtue. She's always loved the H and sees this as a huge rejection. I really disliked the H for this moment - how could he demean his best friend's noble sister like this? It was only a moment and didn't detract from the book too much. I just loath the mistress concept for female leads in books. Fortunately the h gave him a good slap for his trouble. The other unfortunate scene is where the H takes the h's innocence after they are married and it's really unpleasant to read about - he made wrong assumptions about her all along. The H was also truly quite horrid to the h on a number of occasions and he was also incredibly cruel but such is the author's writing that I loved him at the end. Ms Campbell took a big chance with him losing his temper so badly with the h right at the end of the book but somehow she made the whole thing come together. The secondary love story with the h's brother is very sweet but felt like padding at times. This also gave the author opportunity to have back to back chapters devoted to sex - I prefer less in my historical romances.
What I consistently love about Ms. Campbell as an author (and you know this if you've read any other one of my reviews) is that she develops fine characters through the use of hearty dialogue and interaction. I think this is a pretty critical element to a romance book's success or failure. I've read some pretty thin stuff in my day and her works go above and beyond. I will mention here, as I have in my other reviews, that this isn't a "clean" read. It's spicy stuff and I love it. However, it's worth mentioning should you take that into consideration as a reader.
I believe every book in this series goes above the price of purchase for entertainment and sheer fun. It's nice to put the worries of every day life aside and be able to get lost in romance that bristles, sparkles, and makes us believe in love. This series will do it for you and this book is a great example of that experience. Buy it.
But I will read a story about two Teletubbies getting it on - if Anna Campell writes it. Because those Teletabbies will without a doubt wrench and tug and pull on my heartstrings as they stumble on their way to HEA. And have some pretty steamy yet emotional sex along the way.
The writing is so beautiful, the characters so flawed and interesting and the love and the anguish between them is so engaging that I cried - twice!
It's a character driven romance and the hero is deliciously dark in an icy kind of way. He's also heartbreakingly vulnerable.
The heroine is just as easy to care about but her struggle is a little more frustrating for me as a reader. Still, I loved her.
This is another keeper for me.
Anna Campbell is the lone historical author in the forest of my paranormals and it makes me happy to think that she will be writing for many more years to come....If there is any justice in the world.
This book contains two love stories which might be a bit confusing but it's to show Pen's trust in love - because she does go far for the people she loves.
As often with great heroines, you feel that she deserves better - and Pen really does.
