Romance's are so difficult to review, because part of their appeal are that they're predictable. Even though I knew exactly where this was going, I found myself staying up to read much later than I should, and I think for that reason alone the book deserves a high rating. But it was also entertaining and funny, making me giggle and gasp in reaction. This one wasn't groundbreaking, yet it was great! I liked the story and I liked the characters, especially the heroine as she came across as a strong character even though the times were very anti-female... evidenced by the fact that she was considered "ruined" for something trivial. She held her own against "the beast" and she didn't let him bully her or dominate her, even though he was still very much an alpha male.
A very enjoyable and quick read, and I'll definitely pick up the author's other work.
