I have read twenty four (I know, I love to read) of Ms. Johnson's book and yet again, I wasn't disappointed. Jo and Flynn, once they meet, have this incredible chemistry and leave a dinner party to "quench their lust." The scenes offered are just what I'm looking for when I read Susan Johnson, although, i wish that there would have been more. There still is history, there still is war, there still is sex and, ubdoubtedly, love. I finished this book in a matter of hours, wanting to see how the book was going to develop and waiting for Jo and Flynn to realize their love for each other. The scene where Jo is being molested and abused is sad, and makes me feel the need for Flynn to hurry his ass up and rescue her, but, luckily, the English men did not get far, and I especially loved it when Flynn got revenge on them.
I liked the fact that the Braddock-Black characters were introduced again (since their books were some of my favorite in her series and the most memorable once, seeing that I still remember them) but, I read that series from Ms.Johnson, and I don't recollect Jo being mentioned, I did read those books about three years ago, so I might have overlooked it or just can't seem to remember, either way, I liked seeing them again, even with the controversy of Jo being the daughter of a previous lover Hazard had, before he met Blaze, whom I have learned to love.
I really liked this book and I definitely recommend it, maybe if it would have been longer in length (it is only 275 pgs), then there would have been more sizzle in it, but, regardless, it was a good, hot read.
