This was the first book I'd read by this particular author. I don't normally read historicals, but the jacket blurb sounded OK. Unfortunately this wasn't my cup of tea. Some parts were titillating, but then it became too intense and dark with some of the love scenes. I wouldn't describe it as a romance either, as somehow the character's just didn't convey sufficient attraction to each other. A lot of the scenes seemed to be there just to pad out the book and not because of any real flow to the story. If you like dark, sexy scenes and a token romp through a plot you may like it. Personally I prefer a bit more substance to what I'm reading.
