First off let me say that I am VERY, VERY, upset with myself for not giving this author a chance YEARS ago! That being said this book was a wonderful introduction to her writing.
Though this book is the 4th in the Malory series I didn't find myself lost. Though I am curious about the other characters and their romances in the books preceding this one.
I found Amy's character to be quiet refreshing. I loved her sense of humour and I love how she fought for the man she wanted. It was so nice to have a heroine who had a brain, sense of humour, and a temper despite her age. Unlike many heroines that are 18 in romances she wasn't silly and I think I saw a bit of myself in her.
I did find Warren's character to be lacking. He was sort of one dimensional to me though it was nice to see that though he's of the alpha male mentality he didn't come across more superior to Amy. I found him irritating and annoying, but perhaps it was because he was to arrogant and jaded. I found myself wanting him to appear in front of me just for the sake of kicking him repeatedly for being an ass. This is why I only gave it 4 stars.
This was a sweet romance and one that I would recommend to my mother in law without feeling worried about the naughty bits being too much for her and embarrassing me in the process because I recommended it to her. I recommend it to all historical romance lovers.
