With so many of the things that I love in a romance novel -- a tortured, scarred hero, a browbeaten yet determined heroine, both having to live with their own sins of the past, and a forbidden romance blossoming between them, this book was wonderful.
There was only one scene really that put a bit of a dampener on my enjoyment, and even that was made up for with a tasty make-up scene.
Overall, highly romantic, with some great chemistry, and plenty of plot twists to keep things interesting.
