Y and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction only one uestion remainsCan she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known. 35 STARSIt s been a while since LK has written a HR She s among my top 3 fave authors and she writes beautifully I enjoyed this book but I didn t love it If I m comparing it to other HR books she s written most notably The Wallflowers series then this isn t AS good WhyLet s get the good stuff out of the way The writing was flawless of course The descriptions the emotion the use of proseI enjoyed all that The hero Devon Ravenel was alright He was uite an asshole at the beginning but I like that since it opens up so much room for improvement He did improve but I wasn t always impressed by him When you have previous heroes that slayed me Sebastian St Vincent from Devil in Winter is the most notorious comparing Devon to him was like comparing a dandelion to a rose Really the whole lot of heroes from The Wallflowers series were amazing and memorable For me Devon was okayThe heroine Kathleen was the fiery and independent type She was headstrong and stubborn I don t mind that but I prefer my heroines like Evie from Devil in Winter or Daisy from Scandal in Spring I love the uieter heroines the Unlikely ones the underdogs I love how they accomplish what the stubborn ones do but effortlessly through their strength and merit I became annoyed with Kathleen many times and found her to be abrasive with her remarks As a couple Devon and Kathleen fought too much They weren t as convincing as they could have been The funny thing is I loved Helen and Winterborne Theirs was a secondary story line but the next book is devoted to them They reminded me of Evie and Sebastian Helen s shyness hides a passionate woman desperate for a chance to get out I think Winterborne is the man to help accomplish that with his unpolished nature and hard edges I honestly can t wait for their book Marrying Winterborne and I felt LK s trademark magic with those two as apposed to the main characters Anyways I did like this and am so glad LK is back Even not being a fan of the main characters you can t help but fall in love with the story and how it s written
