I enjoyed the story of Sebastian and Evie but the way the romance played out was a bit much for me. I enjoy the romance end but perhaps making it past chapter 4 before declaring eternal love (fated or ... Read full review

Okay, so she finally stopped the trilogies under her different pseudonyms, but now could we have a historical romance without the "paranormal" stuff? Read full review
