I do need to say that I hated both of these characters. Blaise was annoying, immature, and totally ridiculous. She fell in love with Julian almost immediately, even though she supposedly detested "cold fish" English noblemen. She reminded me of a dog that is continuously neglected and mistreated but still loves his master.
Julian is incredibly annoying and totally unsympathetic as a "wounded hero." He is a crybaby who wants a doormat for a wife. Well, then I guess he shouldn't have seduced Blaise in a hayloft if he wasn't willing to be a man and marry her afterwards. Yeah, yeah, yeah, he didn't know she was a noblewoman. So, instead, he decides he will seduce her and then maker her his mistress. Yeah, those are nice intentions. What a gentleman. NOT.
The whole plot of this novel is absurd. The way Julian treats Blaise is condescending and just mean-spirited. It's not Blaise's fault that Julian neglected his wife and drove her into another man's arms. It's not Blaise's fault that Caroline (the late wife) died in a storm. Nothing he blames her for is her fault. Mostly it is all his fault. Ugh...he has to be the most unendearing "hero" I've ever encountered.
If you come across this one at a booksale, I wouldn't recommend putting out the $0.25 for it.

I enjoyed reading the book. The characters were developed well. A little twist in the story. Not as passionate as her other books, but worth reading.
This is a great story and has plenty of adventure and passion. I kind of got ticked when Julian treated Blaise so awfully because he had to marry her. She told him from the beginning she didn't want him around but he followed her anyway. Just because he thought she was lower class and available for sex without committment doesn't mean she trapped him into anything. However, he does end up compensating for that still makes me mad.
