The Review

This story all seemed to linger on a kiss… But what’s in a kiss? I felt the prelude to the first kiss between our hero and heroine highlighted just how deeply they were hiding their true feelings and emotions from society least they be condemned for acting on them. 

Dell & Lorene’s romance, I thought captured the angst, yearning and longing for the forbidden… The proverbial ‘forbidden fruit,’ just within reach but just one bite could bring certain disaster. 

This Historical Romance has had mixed reviews but I really enjoyed it. Granted I would consider it a ‘slow-burn’ but I thought the characters had an incredible depth. 

“… Tension swirled through the room like the morning mist through the woods.” This quote aptly sums up how this book was written. Some parts left me breathless whereas others were a delightful slow-burn. 

The story had lows and highs but had a constant tension. 4/5 stars from me.
