A dishy, smart story with two compelling characters. After I finished it, I wanted to read Christiana's brother's story--I was that interested! Since that wasn't available, I ordered a whole mess of Hunter's books through PBS, and I'm loving her intelligent, thoughtful prose. If only all romances had such depth!

This is a compelling story dealing with class and station. I loved it because it demonstrated the stupidity of class. Love will find a way.

I have to disagree with the majority of reviewers! This book started out sounding like something I would love - a romance novel with a medieval setting that wasn't somewhere on the Scottish border!?! Historically accurate details! (I think).
The main characters however felt really flat to me. The plots David got wrapped up in were really confusing, and seemed more involved than could be expressed in a story that's supposed to focus on two lovebirds. In fact, romance seemed really half-hearted. Christina likes him because he makes her feel all sexy and he acts more noble than she thought a merchant could. David likes her because she's pretty and stays out of his way mostly. I found myself liking the sidekicks way more than the protagonists. I will agree with one reviewer - I really wanted to hear the story of Christina's brother after reading this one.
