Excellent romance. This is the first book in Putney's Fallen Angels series. Nicholas is a delicious, tortured, and sensitive hero. Clare is a heroine you can root for that is not annoying. Slight echoes of Maddy Timms from Kinsale's Flowers From the Storm, but this book is not nearly as emotionally draining or angsty. Don't get me wrong. Flowers From the Storm is AMAZING. Clare is the daughter of a devout Methodist preacher, but has to find her own peace with her religion and her love. Nicholas is half Welsh, half Gypsy and has had his share of disappointments and betrayals. There is a lot of anticipation and sexual tension in their relationship. Good read.
One of my all time favorite books. The tension between Clare and Nicholas sizzles. A great romance and story.
A kind of sweet love story. The scenario seemed rather a stretch, but I can suspend disbelief for a good story. I liked the gypsy hero. He isn't as good as the gypsy hero's of Lisa Kleypas's Hathaways but still an interesting character. I liked the heroine, Clare, too, she had spunk. The details about going into the mine were really interesting and well written. The sex scenes were very minimal. I'll probably read the next book in the series but not in a rush.
loved this book ,good storie line.would read again
This is --I believe-- the first in the Fallen Angels series. A great read!! I will be going back to read the others in the series.
