If you like to read related books in order, this is the second book to read. The first being "His Wicked Ways". I was hoping we would read more about Glenda & Egan when they were introduced in the other book. You feel for Glenda and her losses & why she is so afraid to love again. With Egan he is not the overbearing male hero as in so many of the Medieval era books. This was my favorite of the two.
