Laura really gets to you with James feeling of insecurity and worries. He really likes Bram but is nervous about just meeting a man that is so forceful. He feels he has been betrayed by everyone, including family and is not sure of anyone.
This is a combination of 2 stories, The Gold Warrior and Twisted Brand.
I found it hard at first to get into the story as the world it is set on is very strange. The customs and society was hard for me to figure out at first. I was determined not to give up to easily and stuck with it. The next thing I knew, I couldnt find a stopping place. I ended up loving it and am happy I stuck with it.

I was skeptical about this book. An alian from another galexy time travels to find a pirate and its 'Captain Jack Sparrow meets the Space alien'. A very interesting and funny story. L. Baumbach is very good at bringing her charactors alive for the reader.
It is 1794 and the last thing a beautiful virgin needs is to be forced from the familiar sanctuary of her village to take up residence in the distant home of a mysterous uncle.
Highway robbers, bogus doctors and her uncles perverted servants might all have designs on her innocence. Indeed, even her uncle could be a notorious libertine with his own cruel agenda. Even the nice people she encounters might amuse themselves with lavish orgiastic soirees, handcranked pleasuring devices and lesbian love.
Of course, Epiphany Maddox is naively unaware of these potential perils and is about to take that first, nervous step on her journey...
