Dumped once already by a fortune-hunting charmer, Cassie McClare is determined never to fall for a pretty-boy ever again, but then she meets Jamie Mackenna...
Jamie Mackenna is a young man who grew up on the Barbary Coast, working by the sweat of his brow for everything he's ever had, his deepest desire is to see his crippled sister walk without pain. But in order to pay for the surgery, he needs money and clout, both of which he can gain by marrying well...
Sparks fly in typical Julie Lessman fashion, in her newest romantic read. I loved watching the characters grow in their faith, as they were tested by the direction of their hearts treading in dangerous territory.
When I started this book, I didn't think that I'd even like Jamie, but by the end he'd wormed his way into my afffections. It will be fun to meet the various other family members in books to come. Unlike the O'Connor Saga, this book was more of a romance the whole way through, without as much historical drama being played out in the backround.
Overall, I enjoyed this fun read, though at times I questioned if maybe Cassie was playing with fire a bit more than she should have, though I admired her resolve to only marry someone who shared her faith. The start of an intriguing saga :)
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
