This was my favorite of the trilogy. While "Goddess of the Hunt", the first book in this series drew me in and made me want to read the other two books, it was this book that made this author an auto buy for me for her next trilogy. I loved Gray. Absolutely loved the way she wrote his character to be both strong and vunerable at the same time. Can't wait to read the series she has coming out this year!
Disappointing! I looked forward to reading Tessa Dare's book as I have just recently discovered her with Goddess of the Hunt. The main female character was just not likeable to me. Her reasons for doing what she did were not plausible at all. I mean we all know we are reading romances - but this was just plain impossible. The entire story took place on a boat. Overall the story was well written. I just did not like any of the people or the high seas drama.
