A more traditional romance from Alison kent than her usual more erotic romances. I've always adored her voice and this book is no different. It does start a bit slowly but picks up. When I think about it, the word that comes to mind is gentle. It's a lovely gentle story with some awful history for these characters. And Kent's voice is as perfect for this type of book as it is for her more raunchy titles. Looking forward to the next one in the series.
