I have mixed feelings after reading this book. I didn't really care for the story; I found it frustrating that the h/h took so long to hook up, how they would meet briefly then separate not just once, but twice! I really couldn't connect with the heroine but rather I was more intrigued with the hero's life and his family. I've read some of JT's other work and wasn't too impressed, I was hoping this one would be different. However, I will cautiously proceed with the sequel because mostly I just want to find out about the hero's brothers.
