(some spoilers in this review. although the story is pretty predictable, so it probably doesn't matter)

This book has a heroine who's a bit too subservient to the super-alpha hero for my tastes. I also didn't really buy the conflict of the story. The hero got all pissed off by a deception on the part of the heroine that really wasn't all that bad, considering his horrid behavior towards her. And she graciously puts up with way too much grief as a result. When he finally manages to piss her off, she threatens to leave, and then he panics and all is forgiven. bleah.

Final score: annoying but mostly forgettable. Please take it off my hands. :)

Certainly the better of the two Capital Theater books but still not one of her best. The book is divided, unnecessarily IMO, into two parts. The first part building up to them having sex, the second resolving the consequences of their actions. But the buildup was not bad and I felt interested in the characters at this point. However the second half of the book went all downhill. There was not enough action and very little drama except the hero's tantrum. It was overly long and boring.

Madeline is one of Kleypas' worst heroines. She is too - everything. Too cheerful. Too subservient. Too unflappable. She seemed naive and almost childish.

The hero was terribly abused as a child and so, reasonably, he is afraid to love and fears attachment. Unfortunately in this case it doesn't make very interesting reading. The story plays out almost - naturally. He pushes her away and instead of her walking out, which would have been more interesting reading, she stays by his side and loves him despite his being a jerk. It was kind of boring. The sex scenes didn't stand out, the drama wasn't particularly dramatic, and the heroine was boring. What's to love here?

Kleypas is one of the best writers in the genre. If this is your first LK book, skip it.
