fantastic read though I have read it before it was a pleasure and joy to read it again I read so much the last 16 months since retirement I cannot remember them all till I get back into them though I knew how it would end I was not sure how it got there but it was a pleasant read and very delightful
Wonderful book with a strong women character that has alot of heart. It has excellent historical information and descriptions. You get a great sense of the situation and places. Lots of sexual tension and sparing which was so fun to see going on between the main characters. Excellent plot, storyline moves along nicely no boring parts. A great read.
