I have mixed feelings about this book ... the first half I thought was fantastic and led up to what should have been an exciting climax, but the expected, and much awaited, climax never really happened, until the end of the book ... the second half was anticlimactic and boring compared to the first half. However ... I LOVED Sax ... too bad he had Meg as his love interest, she just did one stupid thing after another!! The book could have been so much better ... I was really disappointed.
I was a little disappointed in the heroine, Meg. She was a little too naive and reluctant in this storyline for my taste. It made the book drag on in certain places, but all in all a good book.
I though this book was pretty good being as I am not a huge fan of historical romances I did like this one due to the fact that it had a bit of paranormal stuff in it. It was well written as well.
I really enjoyed this romance. It was a historical romance with a magical twist. Very good.
Great romance! Love this author and read all of her books
Eccentric, endearing hero; interesting plot.

Her cruel landlord threatened to turn her and her siblings out of their home by the New Year -- unless she surrendered her sister to his lecherous whims. Only a miracle could save her; a magic statue thatt granted wishes-- for a price.
Penniless, Meg must find a way to support herself and her sisters before New Years. As a last resort, she turns to a magical statue, and gets what she least expects.
