Great fun! The plot is intricate, weaving itself across 2 countries ... and simply grows more addictive with each chapter. The characters are strong and quite likable. The hero & heroine compliment each other beautifully. In truth, after the first chapter I didn't think this would be one of my favorites by the author, but it didn't take long to be convinced otherwise.
A really great book with strong characters..love the initial setting of India.
Not bad, but not Foley's best. Less steam and less emotional than usual.
Better than the last one. Gaelen Foley just gets better with every book!
I wish I had remembered to read my "Don't Read" list before I had ordered all three of this Trilogy. Normally, I like Gaelen Foley stories, but not this one. These stories are connected to The Knight Family books which I liked. To me these characters had no depth and were at times silly. The text was stilted and uninspiring almost sophomoric. I started to read this book several years ago and put it down because I wasn't interested in Indian culture or history. Ms. Foley seemed more interested in educating the reader in those fields with the H/H's story taking second place. Since I have the books, I will finish the series at some point. The next two are about this heroine's brothers. Maybe they will have better stories. They are in England now so I am hoping they will stay there and not go back to England.

Ian is mesmerized by Georgie's alluring mystique but burdened by a dark secret. And she is a temptation he cannot afford. But when she becomes entangled in his mission, she must be secreted away to England for her own safety. There Georgie finds herself in the unfamiliar world of aristocratic London, where Ian becomes her guide, her confidant...her seducer. His kiss sets her soul on fire, and Georgie knows whe will never be satisfied until she has made this magnificent man her own.
