Sadly, this book falls short for me. There is something about Caitlin that just doesn't feel right. The way she goes from spouting off about virtues, not taking the Lord's name in vain and concern over there not being a chapel to sexual pondering and self-exploration in a bath tub just seems very conflicted. While I can appreciate a character's duality, I just had a hard time believe Caitlin.
The chemistry between Darach and Caitlin is forced upon the reader from their first meeting in a way that makes it difficult to believe that he is a man who has sworn off marriage and love. For a man that was betrayed by love he easily showers Caitlin with endearments like love and sweetling... I wish the author would have taken more time to build the sexual tension and chemistry between the two, instead of just giving us the fast-pass to love.
