My absolute favorite one out of the series. I'm glad I read this one last because if I didn't, I would have hated the other ones in the series. I loved that Helen wasn't experienced and we didn't get the usual spousal rape scene in all the other books of the series. This one was a lot of fun and much more light-hearted. There is some light bondage. Spenser and Helen are a great couple. There are some cameos from the other characters of previous books so I would recommend you read them first.
