Yet another book where we are to believe that a frontier raised woman is too stupid to bring up her knife and can have it handily taken away, as the big strong manly idiot laughs at her puny attempts to defy him, and does what he likes with her anyway.

This dummy is actually spanked for disobedience - !! Spanked!? Like a willful child.

Another one where I was fervently wishing the dumb female would stab the idiotic hero in his grabby grubby little hands as he reached for her. Why do women in books have to be so irritating? They are so PASSIVE - the story happens TO them, they fall in love DESPITE their better judgment, and the hero moves the story forward, and is always mocking toward the poor dumb helpless cow.

Romance writers can do better than this, this is trite crap.

From the back:
In a rustic Mississippi tavern, a beautiful exiled princess was forced to dance for the pleasure of others -- unaware of her regal birthright...and infuriated by a magnificent, golden-eyed devil who crossed an ocean to possess her.

This was a great book. I love how both protagonists come toghether. The fish out of water part was played down and seemed very natural to me. I love Stefan and Vasili. Great characters. A great read.
