Teresa Medeiros does not disappoint with this Historical Romance. She dazzles you with such detail you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time and are watching everything she writes down come to life. What a great follow up to “The Pleasure of Your Kiss”. **I loved the cameos Ashton and Clarinda made in this book as well!!**
