Teresa Medeiros is undoubtedly a very good writer and I did greatly enjoy her story. However, I couldn't stand her female character, Emily. She was spoiled, childish, selfish and she continually ran away and put herself in very dangerous situations, constantly needing Justin to save her from herself. When will authors quit thinking that strong women have to yell alot and throw temper tantrums? It worked in books like Gone With the Wind, considering the age that book was written in. But I find it difficult to like this kind of character in a currently written book. I found nothing at all to admire in Emily and I finally gave up on her about half way through the book. Other readers have said they thought the incidents with her were funny. I just thought she was spoiled and willful and I wanted no more of her. I would not recommend this book.
