I love all the Julie Garwood's historic romances and I've read them all. But, I found some flaws in this book compared with previous series. First, this story was about 1 year after Cain and Jade's story (Guardian Angel). But, this book hints that Nathan's been Pagan for more than 1 year. If you read Guardian Angel, you will know how long Nathan's been Pagan. Second, Nathan's sister Jade was not married to the Earl of Cainwood. If you see other series (Guardian Angel and Castle), it says Cain is a Marquess not an Earl. But overall it was a good read and fun too.

After reading the reviews for this book, I had to go and find it so I could read it for myself. But I have to admit, I was just a little bit disapointed. It was a very light and quick read, even if it was a bit unrealistic. I honestly doubt people spoke like Nathan and Sara did, during that time period. The story could have taken place last week in San Francisco! Although it was a historical, it didn't "transport" me to the time and place of the characters. However, like I said, this was a very entertaining story. Sara's faith in her husband was admirable, though she was a bit weak. Even she noticed that Nathan only had to crook a finger and she'd come running!! Sara was a bit of a ditz, if you ask me but she was a riot! I couldn't stop laughing over her mishaps, and they made me want her to succeed that much more. Nathan was a very good hero, his protectiveness over Sara was what won me over. Don't we all want a man like Nathan who'll try to keep us safe from all the harm in the world. I was a bit disappointed with how it played out in the end though. Nathan was hilarious when he was asking Caine for advice on how to woo his wife back! :) But, like Caine, I was also looking forward to seeing Nathan "getting down on his knees" before Sara would forgive him. She was much too forgiving, but I'm glad to see her gaining some strength at the end. Nathan and Sara together were so cute. I loved their shouting matches! They really were meant to be together...they're probably the only ones who'd be able to stand each other :)

Many seem to view the heroine as "childish" or immature, but that's not how I saw her. I do believe that Sara is a more realistic, true-to-life representation of women in that era. I tend to find romances that make the heroines too strong to be more unbelievable. You can't change history from what it was and have it still be history, so writers that make women of 200+ years ago stronger than they actually were are not writing believable stories. Sara is more the way a woman then would have been. She is a lady, and quite naive. But she learns, she falls in love, and she does survive, all while still being able to think on her own without being an ubelievable female. Her affection for Nathan, despite his faults, is quite touching, and the way Nathan learns to love in return is very charming. I really enjoy Ms. Garwood's writing style, and intend to read all her books as I can find them.

Once I started this book, I didn't want to put it down. It was a funny, quick read that left me with a smile on my face! A great book to put you in a good mood. I love everything I've read by Garwood.

I liked nathan in Guardian Angel, but after the Gift, i love him. And Sara! She is one of my favourite heroines, with her little ' accidents', that make nathan's crew persist in regarding her as a curse. she is extremely naive, and has touching faith in her husband with the idea that she would never be in danger cause he would always save her. definitely a keeper!
