Publisher's Summary

Arriving at her long-lost relatives' Brittany estate, Serenity Smith was greeted with cold politeness by the Comtesse de Kergallen and her darkly handsome grandson, Christophe. Refusing to believe their scandalous stories about her late parents, Serenity set out to prove they were false...but getting the enigmatic Christophe to change his mind about her would prove an equally worthy challenge.

Great Characters!

This was my first Nora Roberts novel. I’m a sucker for a good romance, being a hopeless romantic myself, so thought I would give this a shot. I thought the spin of the tale was great, jumping right in from almost the first written word. The characters were wonderfully developed, interesting, and I found myself laughing in a few places. The passion between the two main characters was well captured also.

I have to say though, in contrast to the above points, that the whole story builds and builds to a near bubble-over, but then the pot is removed from the heat at the very end. A bit of a let-down, however, aside from that, I would recommend the book, as it was spellbinding up until the end.

different romance

This wasn't one of her best. I like the time period but I thought the book dragged in parts. She has other books that I much prefer. The characters were okay but not dynamic.

Violence

Brought back horrible memories of physical abuse from my younger years!! He objetives the female lead. Tries to excuse violence as being love. Love is not suppose to hurt physically.
