Tyanan and Riana for me were a very intriguing couple. First off, she was more of the rake for their time period. Living down a scandal that truly had such devistating effect on her family was rather incredible. Tyanan who was supposed to have a rakish reputation seemed with the death of his brother a truly changed person. The couple had much to deal with - with their arranged marriage. Riana was so determined to not allow her feelings to be real and Tyanan with so many complicated reasons for wanting to make this a real marriage. The slow patient way that Tyanan "courts" Riana is very real and by the time they are a true couple you feel the love between them. I think the only sad part is knowing what they would have to face down the road - so many many obsticles it is hard to imagine that they had a fairy tale ending after the book ends!
