I eel Lisa Kleypas did a decent job on the plot, but I wante that the actual murderer came out of left field.
We ould all see the actual murderer from a mile a way.Anyways, I enjoyed it, but felt at some point a bit more remorse on Grant 's part would have helped me, and th bit more fire and anger from the heroine should have helped me with her.
I didn ’ t ind the characters quite as charismatic as those in her other books.It has an unusua plot – a courtesan with amnesia being pursued by someone who is hoping to punis her and he an who saved her life and is now protecting her, bent on vengeanc for some wrong she did him in the past.
“ Do you have an answer for me? ” I loved those few sentences more than any others in the whol ook because it gave me a real insigh into him – an overgrown boy used to getting his own ay and not sure what he ould do if he didn ’ t.
