" Words can not describe how disappointed I was by this book. I'm usually a big fan of Catherine Coulter's work, bother her historical & contemporary books. However, this story was long, slow & boring. I liked the heroine, but didn't care for the hero. Even when writing a historical book, the author must remember the readers have modern sensibilities. I can't like a hero who voluntarily engages in torture. In the last 150 pages of the book the story suddenly changed from a historical romance to a fantasy. The storyline moved into the unbelieveable. I just couldn't buy into it. I also found the romance in the story to be a minor point, with almost no emotion at all. Hope the next book is better. "
