It wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be. I love Jude Devereaux's early books. Her "Highland Velvet" is my absolute favorite romance novel. But I have to think that ever since she began to venture into time-travel romance and paranormal romance, her quality has dropped off. I just didn't find her characters as likeable as they used to be. And the plot deserved to be thicker and juicier. I was just disappointed.
