I have NEVER felt a need to write a review for any book...until now. I cannot believe how engrossing, inventive, perfectly paced this novel is. I've read many other authors' works and enjoyed them but this is the first time a romance novel has so thoroughly impressed me. Other works seem so trite by comparison, with the usual he-loves-me-he-loves-me-not, ending in torrid sex romps. Here, the characters, the plots, the twists and turns, the witty dialog, the understated yet powerful love scenes, all blend together in a beautiful, vital background of political intrigue. The narration was the only thing I could fault, when the characters' voice were not quite right from one scene to the next, but that was easy to overlook, considering the excellent writing and the fact that the narrator did a great job with the female voices didn't botch the male voices by overacting but somehow let my imagination add the right level of maleness needed. I look forward to other works by Bourne and Potter!
