You have to love this heroine. She is fiercely independent, courageous, feisty and smart. Just the woman to tame a wild man like Shane Hawkhurst. And Shane is a man worthy of taming. Both have Irish blood running through their veins--at a time when Queen Elizabeth feared the rebellious Irish. So the sparks fly continuously.
I love Henley's storytelling, her attention to historic detail and her ability to weave a captivating tale. Her love scenes are unique and fit the people and the story--very well done, very sexy and not contrived. It is so worth it to dive into one of her complex, winsome tales. Nothing like the fluff often passed off as historical romance these days.
