I'm normally a fan of Christine Warren and have read and enjoyed her "Novels Of The Others" series. This book just didn't do it for me. I found myself skimming through it just to finish and hoping that it would get better. I found the heroine boring and the hero to be overbearing and cold, but then I guess he is made of stone. I even got where I skipped over the sex scenes completely to finish the book more quickly. I am disappointed because I've always enjoyed her stories in the past and found her characters funny and gratifying, but that was not the case with this book. I will not continue with this series.
