About the Author
I believe strongly in reaching for dreams. When I first pursued writing as a career, my husband explained that the odds were against me getting published. Hes a realist. Im a dreamer. A little over ten years later, with more than fifteen books published for adult and young adult readers, titles on the USA Today bestseller list, and several awards, including the RITA®, the HOLT medallion, five Texas Golds and a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award, Ive convinced him to believe in the magic and power of dreams.

The attraction between the two is strong and believeable.Camilla takes a while to warm up to but the reasons are revealed early on. I really enjoyed this book. There is an element of mystery but it involves the characters and not an actual bad guy. There's even a slightly surprising ending.
I love Lorraine Heath. She is vastly under rated. This book is emotional and drew me in with the characters and not some ignorant adventure. If you want adventure. Read Tom Clancy. If you want a good romance that stays focused on the characters. This one's for you.
Camilla's insistence on marrying a duke never had a convincing rationale, but her struggle with literacy was well done. Yes, the barrenness issue was over-highlighted; we've all seen this plot before, so there were no surprises there. Indeed, several elements were "old" in terms of being used often by romance writers. There was some predictability here, but I wouldn't knock off more than 1/2 a point for that because so much is well done. The joy in this book, for me, was in the truly loveable Archie, the willingness of each of these people to sacrifice their own desires for the other's sake, and the strong emotional elements present, particularly in the last third of the book. Keep the tissues handy!
