The other reviewer just recites the plot, not the value of the writing...This is, all in all, a good read, tho' you want to bop the heroine over the head quite a few times. She's often stupid for the sake of plot contrivances. But this book is rescued by its sexy, masculine and vulnerable hero (definitely not an alpha-male!) and the sexual tension that Ms. Craig generates between the hero & heroine. (Woo-hoo, I say.) In short: hero's great; heroine so-so; plot -- not without silliness & contrivances, yet still worth reading for the interaction & tension between H/H -- kept me reading straight through as a matter of fact! I loved Ms. Craig's "Empire of the Heart" and have been going through her backlist hoping for another gem like that. This isn't it, but it's pretty good.
