This was a typical Quick book; brooding, troubled, jaded hero and strong-willed eccentric heroine. Pretty predictable but good none the less and would recommend it to fellow Quick fans.I like Quick's heroines because there is no pretence and prolonged periods of 'hating' the heros.

This was my first Amanda Quick novel and I am hooked. She writes characters who are open and real. In this historical romance, the heroine runs an island (named Desire) after her father's death leaves her in charge. The hero does not swoop in and save the day because she can't cope; he just brings love and romance. And helps her solve a mystery that arrives with him! Wonderful. Quick avoids the stereotypical romance novel theme where most of the plot consists of misunderstandings between the two leads because each refuses to tell the other of their feelings. Quick's story involves both steamy love and mysterious murder. A great read -- I couldn't put it down.

A fantastic story which kept me reading for hours on end. I simply was unable to put it down. The tight knit work of a story along with a sweet romance. Just beautiful

After reading some of her recent (very) idiotic books, I went back to the book that got me started on AQ. I swear, it does not compare. THIS is a wonderful story. But lately, all her books are THE SAME: Bluestocking/spinster obsessed with unfashionable stuff (metaphysics, ancient cultures, godawful precious stone, unsolved something or other, etc) hires man of affairs (I swear, if AQ uses that phrase ONE MORE TIME) and even though she has kept herself pure, she has sex with him at the first opportunity. Then, there will be a sex scene in some bizarre setting (cave, dusty museum, etc) and some run of the mill complication, but, aided by their nutball relatives/house staff/friends, the mystery is solved/treasure found/murder solved, etc, and there you have it. In the godforsaken case Ms. Quick reads this. Please please, stop assembly-line-ing your books. I have a computer program that does better, and I want a hero and heroine I have not met before, for god's sakes.

This was my first historical romance novel and I loved it. This is what got me started. I really enjoyed the charecters and story line. Ever since reading this book, I have read all of her other books. Most of them are set in the London "ton", but not this one. And that is what I loved about it. The only complaint I have (that's why I didn't give it 5*) was the ending. It was too abrupt. I was hoping for a little more details, but did'nt get them. Other than that, the book was great!
