Without giving away too much of the plot not that there was much of one about pages of the book were devoted to Elle saying "I love, you" or "I hate you" and Sean replying "No you don't" or "Marry Sinclair". I actually skipped over 20 pages at a time because the dialogue was so repetitive, and still the action had not moved along. The story doesn't come alive until the last two chapters, but by that point, the interest comes too little, too late.
The plot did not bother me. The taboo didn't bother me. What bothered me was how it was written. First of all, I thought Elle was just a little too And Sean, he was so miserable, I wanted to hug him and comfort him myself, and all Elle would do was continue to tell him how she believed they belonged together. It got better after a while, but then I felt awful for Peter. I wish he could have had his own story! It would have left the reader with a better feeling had he have been a heartless, cruel, rake.
My biggest irritation though, was the exaggerated way the dialogue was. Everything was exclaimed like a soap opera. But, really, besides these few things, it's not that bad of a story. I love Brenda Joyce's deWarrene series but this was my least favorite one.
I did enjoy it but it was my least favorite of this series. Feedback If you need help or have a question for Customer Service, contact us.

I enjoy books by this author. One person found this helpful. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. Another example of an author who seems to be writing for writing's sake rather than something she actually feels passionate about.
The plot was good, one of her recent better ones, but I felt she didn't realise its full potential and come the last few chapters, the hero had an abrupt personality change, totally aceeded to the heroine's point of view with barely a whimper and she wrapped up the book very quickly and far too neatly as though she had got bored with it. I like the fact that she's continuing writing about the de Warenne family but the majority of her later sequels aren't a patch on The Game, Promise of the Rose or The Conqueror.

Again, another case of read her older, better stuff than her newer novels. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. I've actually read this book twice the second time by mistake but I kept on reading, anyway and for me it was an ok read both times. It had most of what I usually look for in a romance book: Yes, you can call me shallow LOL.
But that's why this is fiction. It's not meant to be taken so seriously as most of the reviewers seem to be doing with their literary critiques. By the way, I'm not making sarcasm here-just being droll: D I love most, if not all, romance books this one included simply for the escapism of it. That's why I read these types of books badly written or otherwise , not for their critical acclamation although some authors have done it! If it's bad, just point at it and giggle. With that said, I'd like to hypcritically offer a few of my opinions on what I read a few spoilers coming up heh heh.
For one, the hero was doing the Alpha routine a tad overboard and venturing into jerk territory. I mean after he's supposedly figured out his feelings for the heroine and then thinking he's lost her twice! Why, he "made the mistake of letting [his vindictive ex-mistress] back into [his] bed for a night or two". What, he couldn't even remember if it was one night or two? And then on the second time he screwed up his chances with the heroine, he's so morose and dysfunctional that he went to bed with different prostitues foreigners, of course every night.
Yeah, I'm not sure what the significance of the foreign cyprians was. The first instance I can accept, as it was part of the whole pain and heartache the heroine must seemingly always have to suffer in these stories.
