My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book started out so promising. I love historical romances! I love the way they develop. But the ending completely ruined this book for me. It was rushed, and really, it was transparent. It's as if the author couldn't figure out how to show a real change and development in their character, so the way it all unfolded, just felt cheesy. If the ending were re-written on this, I would gladly give it 5 stars. But as it is, I wouldn't recommend anyone waste their time on this. It was definitely a disappointment.
