Incorporates pretty much all of the elements I like in the books I read, and does it all but seamlessly. Perhaps a few historical and linguistic inaccuracies but all in all a great read and an author that I will definitely return to.

I bought all of the books available from this author based on the excerpts available and I do not regret purchasing any of them. However, I would say that - of all of the ebooks - this is my least favourite. The plot was sturdy and promising, and for the most part the story was exactly what I had hoped. The main problem I had was with the way certain characters were portrayed - brothers surely wouldn't do that to brothers? - and also the way in which the same characters acted spoilt and couldn't make their minds' up. However, that was a problem I had with specific characters, and as they were not the main two characters, this wasn't such a big deal. There were, on the other hand, quite a few scenes in this book that I found disturbing - especially as part a romance story. These scenes involved both sexual and violent scenes, sometimes together, which were a little more graphic than I had expected. This did detract from my enjoyment of the story as a whole, but I did like most of the interaction between the two main characters and think that it was still mostly a great story.
