Well, I enjoyed this story about two people who've been so hurt as children and now must choose between living in the past or letting it go and trusting in themselves to make their lives what they want.
The author has written with a real understanding of human emotions and how children are affected by their parents' decisions. I had a lot of trouble with how the hero, Lukas, viewed physical love and love in general , but understood why.
The heroine, Rhiannon, is brave. Willing to be vulnerable, she finds strength. Despite her upbringing she is willing to put herself out on a limb for a chance at love.
I enjoyed this novel a lot.
