I have read this multiple times in the last 6 years.
WHEN I FIRST READ
I read this in paperback (I have a copy back in the Philippines) around 2008 or 2009.
Read my first review here (this is also a re-read review)
WHAT I REMEMBER
I remember a lady bargaining her virtue to the financier Rafe Pendragon and the story was (and still is) sizzling. I have also read multiple books by Tracy Anne Warren that mention Rafe Pendragon as the investor that helped a few heroes in Warren’s other books become rich (see Wicked Delights of a Bridal Bed)
WHY I WANTED TO RE-READ
Because I wanted to go back and read a sizzling historical romance (without the erotica).
HOW I FELT AFTER RE-READING
I felt the same. A few parts brought me to tears (again) and the romance still worked for me. However, I hated Rafe a little after he broke things off with Lady Julianna Hawthorne. I knew that he had a valid reason for it but now, I did not find what he did forgivable. I still like him as a hero but now, I see this aspect of his personality in a different light.
WOULD I RE-READ THIS BOOK AGAIN
Definitely! As with most of my favorite books, I reread them every few years or so,
