What a wonderful debut novel from Victoria
Cornwall! I'm not usually an historic romance fan but I was swept up in the
story and the beautiful scenery descriptions. Jenna and Jack's relationship has highs, lows
and strong arguments! I love a relationship that isn't black and white and this
one is very colourful! I also enjoyed Jenna's attempt to escape her past and
not be painted with the same brush as her family. As my readers know, I am a great fan of Choc Lit
and this is yet another book worthy of them. I look forward to Victoria's next
