I wasn’t sure about this one — it’s a little campy and seems rather ridiculous at first. I quickly warmed up to it however, and ended up loving it. It doesn’t play out the way it seems at first it will — I was surprised several times with how the characters were portrayed.
Elspeth and Cain are not what they first appear – nor is Elspeth’s mother – and the way they defy expectations made me enjoy this a great deal more than I thought I would. The plot is a bit thin as it focuses on Elspeth and Cain’s attraction, but that’s not a bad thing in a romance novel. Sometimes you want something sweet and sexy and easy to read, and I will definitely be keeping Erica Ridley in mind for when I want such novels in future.
