Although she has only written two novels so far, Virginia's work is worth reading. Her writing is on a par with the more prolific writers, such as Nora Roberts and Mary Balogh.
This story is quite complex, involving a ransom demand, past intrigue which is being revisited in the present and, of course, a love story. Each segment of the story is nicely balanced so that no one part overshadows the others.
Virginia does a beautiful job of combining all of the various aspects of the story and resolving them in a believable way.
I highly recommend this book as well as her other book, Against the Wind.
