Review by bhowell
This historical novel had a bit too much soppy romance in it for my taste. I don't know why it seems necessary to refer to women as animals in romance novels and Rebbecca Dean doen't do it too often but it is still offensive. Delia's daughters are "fiery beauties", as if they were horses. I guess it is too difficult to say they were strong and beeautiful women. Delia has "cat eyes" because they were green, yet cats mainly have yellow eyes and what is the point really? Women are people not a "blonde". No wonder Nora Roberts liked this novel.
