“Although I have to admit the story is so interesting and fascinating, I don't really like the hero. He's so terrible, especially extremely selfish. I wonder he loved Whitney? Certainly no! We can't love another like the way he did. He just loved himself and behaved very childish that always want to keep anything for own and is bad-behaved without any reason. For heroine's part, I don't understand how strong she is as could stand what Clayton did for her, not like a husband. He's the tyrant!”kathy t wrote this review Monday, September 13, 2010.

“*SPOILER ALERT* This was a very enjoyable read -- up to 2/3 of the way. I liked the characters and the witty dialogue. Full of palpable chemistry and just the right amount of tension. I admire Judith McNaught for setting up very interesting 'meets' between the heroine and heroes. I was smiling the whole time I was reading the first few chapters. Then it reached the climax, and things started getting awry. For one thing, I'm not convinced of Claymore's motives for taking Whitney's virginity. I know he's supposed to be a callous bastard, but Whitney's changed him- why did he act like a savage beast all of a sudden? He did the same thing 2 more times (at least he's consistent), which makes me disbelieve his love for Whitney, not to mention his supposed intelligence. I certainly wouldn't want him as my husband, no matter how handsome and sexy he is!
I skipped and skimmed the last few chapters. The book should've ended a few hundred pages back. Too much unneeded conflict. The last few chapters felt unnecessary- more like fanfiction and hooks to make the reader buy the rest of the Westmoreland series.
My favorite character btw, is Nicolas duVille. It's a pity he disappeared early on and only made brief appearances later *sigh*
I'd still read McNaught, though. I like how she sets up her characters, and the first 2/3 of the book were really quite enjoyable.”
