This book had a lot of Christian overtones in it than the first. To some it will be annoying and a turn off. I had many problems with this book but if disclosed it would be considered spoilers. Why would anyone want to have a baby to leave as a legacy to man that tricked them among other things? I'm happy and satisfied that the ending gave a bit of a resolution but not really. Ofcourse, there will be a third book which is The Duke's Promise. I enjoyed the book but just like with the first, around 60% in, I was tired and frustrated with the drawn out plot. The characters are all great and you can picture them in your mind when reading. Jamie does a great job.*******I will write a proper review at a later date. These are my initial thoughts.
