Like other reviewers, this was the first time I had read a book by Jo Goodman. I really enjoyed it.
The story does not really follow the set "romance" format but had a neat little twist in it towards the end. I found myself wanted to read on and on to find out what would happen, not only to the two main characters (Ferrin and Cybelline) but also other characters in the book.
If you want an engrossing romance with depth and interest then I recommend you give this a go.
I have just begun reading "If His Kiss Is Wicked" which has the stepbrother of Ferrin, Restell as the main character.
