About the Author
Susan Johnson, award-winning author of nationally bestselling novels, lives in the country near North Branch, Minnesota. A former art historian, she considers the life of a writer the best of all possible worlds. Researching her novels takes her to past and distant places, and bringing characters to life allows her imagination full rein, while the creative process offers occasional fascinating glimpses into complicated machinery of the mind. But most important...writing stories is fun.

Having read many of Johanna Linsey's and Karen Robards historical romances, I must say I was disappointed by Susan Johnsons efforts. In it's favor, it is a true historical novel, with an attention to detail that will have all fans of this genre content. However, personally I did not find it very 'romantic', I found the central characters somewhat obnoxious and inconsistant. We are told constantly of Daisy native american restraint but she falls into the Duc arms without a struggle. Stopping in the middle of a love scene to describe the 18th century decor was most irritating and although some scenes where undoubtedly explicit(not a book for the faint of heart in that regard) they also managed to be unexciting or rather other writers are less explict but manage somehow to have more 'sizzle'.
You certainly get your money's worth with the book coming in just under 500 pages but it was so lacking in humor, wit or warmth, that I personally found it heavy going. If you want the description of every room in a French chateaux just off the bois de boulogne, this IS the novel for you, if not read (Patricia) Potter, Lindsey or Robards instead.
