While overall I think I prefer MacLean's debut Love by Numbers trilogy to this one, since the former is overall lighter in tone, I am enjoying this series a fair amount, and thought this was a quite good installment. It's the darkest book in the series so far, almost TOO dark for me (I like my romances light and funny, though, so keep in mind that my threshold is pretty low), but I thought both main characters were compelling, I believed their romance, and the very end of the book has a surprise that will make readers eager for the fourth and final volume.

I totally called it 30% into the book.

The boy has been completely and utterly pu**y whipped. And that's all anyone needs to know.

This is a 2014 RITA Historical Romance Finalist for a good reason: this is a good book. There is nothing wrong with the protagonist other than she is independent and street smart and has trust issues. Mara Lowe is not an innocent, wronged, shrinking violet and that may put some Romance readers off. Yes, it is a dark story and gets darker as the plot moves goes along. The characters in this story are not, in public, nice people, but in the end they figure things out.

It was a little too dark, and yes, the heroine wasn't really all that likeable. I thought she was a con artist. Maclean has written a lot better.

The series started off fairly well but has gotten progressively worse. I wasn't able to finish this book. The plot was ridiculous - and that's coming from a fan of the genre - and the motivation of the characters was utterly unbelievable. I found Mara to be completely unlikeable with almost no redeeming qualities. The author is not a bad writer, but she seems to lack the ability to write heroines who are strong, smart, *and* appealing. (With mixed results, Loretta Chase, Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, Sherry Thomas, and Mary Balogh are much better in this regard.)

And without the ability to create a strong female lead, the romance goes nowhere. This book is a prime example, in my opinion, of an interesting premise sunk by a twit of a heroine.

Darker than the previous two books in the series, but utter perfection.

"I wish we could start anew." [Mara said.]
He shook his head. "I don't. Without the past, there would be no present. No future. I don't regret a moment of it. It all brought us here. To this place. To this moment. To this love."
