I've read this book three times and I have to say I don't get tired of it. In my opinion JD's earlier books are her best. Zared is such a wonderful and fresh heroine in the book, and when she finds love it just gets better.
This is really one of my FAVORITES! Story draws you in and keeps you going. It NEVER gets old, I can read it over and over! My copy is almost falling apart. I just Love Tearle and his desire to win her over... again and again.
