Since I was first introduced to Hoyt as an author earlier this year I have find it incredibly hard to fall in love with her stories. If you have yet to be introduced to the author yourself allow me to tell you that the author pens beautiful, breathtaking romances that will remind you of a gentle fairy tale.
The title of the book describes the story well, "sweet." This story is a charming romance that is not too heavy and yet certainly easy on the eyes. The romance was present throughout the book and that is what I savor the best about Hoyt as an author is that each time she manages to deliver her readers with a new romance that is as alluring as a spring bloom.
However I think the plot in this book was a little dry around the edges. The beginning was much slower than what I was expecting and the plot never really found its own rhythm. So the plot in my opinion needed to be vastly improved and so it was a good thing that the romance was so well written.
Lastly I rarely ever comment on sensual scenes because each author has their way own way of writing such scenes and yet I feel like historical, heated moments have went straight into the world of contemporary. I was disappointed to have found this in this book as well as the author herself rarely ever does this flaw. Yet, I am beginning to see it more and more in historical-romances and I am not all thrilled by the detail as I consider sensual nature to reflect the tone of both the actual book as a whole and that of the romance. So I am hoping this flaw does not continue into the new year.
For my respect for the author and for her wonderful writings of sweeter romances I would recommend this book.
