3.0 out of 5 stars Great start and then fizzled out at the end., 24 July 2009

This review is from: Don't Tempt Me (Mass Market Paperback)
I was getting really excited about this book and absolutely loved it until about 3/4 of the way through. Both hero and heroine are great characters, its extremely well written and very witty, great dialogue, excellent scene setting and period detail and some very moving insights into their backgrounds and past history but for me there was not enough tension between the two characters to make a really great love story. They were obviously made for each other, they were attracted to each other, they got married, they acknowledged their love. There were not ever really any serious obstacles in their path. The drama/tension is provided by a rather unbelievable baddie who never really threatens either the heroine or the relationship. Thus the declaration of love when it eventually comes lacks any kind of emotional punch. Not very satisfying in the end although it seemed so promising at the start.

PS: I should add that this only gets 3 stars from me because Loretta Chase is generally so brilliant that my expectations are very high. By most other measures this would be a four star book but I want more from LC.
