I've been a big fan of Amanda Quick since way back when she wrote as Stephanie James, Jayne Ann Krentz and Jayne Castle. How is it possible that she wrote a medieval in the exact same guise as one of her regency or contemporary romantic suspense books. I'm not even kidding, one could substitute the clothes, mannerisms, backdrop, etc. and interchange the genres. That's a neat trick, one I've not seen any other author pull off.

This is not to say that she doesn't do a good job drawing you into the time period, but this could just have easily been set in 20th C. Seattle or 1812 London. Although this particular H&H was new to me, I've read about them before in the author's other works, i.e., the way they interact with one another, make love, spar/argue, make up, etc..

The good news is that Quick is a consistent writer, the bad news is that Quick is a consistent writer. And while the story is an interesting one, I can't help feeling like it's a retread.

Not as good (not as witty and sparky) as her other stories, but still good! Too short - I wanted MORE!
