"Wow this book had me captivated with a true romance novel with the heroine, hero, and villain along with innocent bystanders made this story one of a kind yet reminded of a Jane Austin classic with the time period of the story. I chose the marking of some violence and sexual content because there was some but it was all so romantic and intriguing. There were times when it was hot and heavy, ruthless, dangerous, on the edge of the seat kind of relationships that you could really feel and be drawn into the story line. This is a book that is very hard to put down until you finish it! I have read many of Renee Hand's books for her younger audiences and since this is the first adult novel I have read of hers I was pleasantly surprised and very pleased to have been able to read a different genre of Renee's. Kudos for a job well done!! Loved it!"--Missy Mae-Amazon
