I love Julie Garwood's historical romances. They are fast-paced, funny, and so hard to put down. Her characters are great from her quirky heroines to her handsome gentle heroes. I read this book years ago and this time listened to the audiobook. The narrator, Rosalyn Landor, does a fantastic job with this story. My rating: 5 Stars.
