When he learns due to a whim of Prinny’s she must choose one of the despots whose offered for her hand, Chance is determined that none should have her but him. Except, not only is she infuriated he made no effort to contact her in all those years, in Chance’s absence, his father arranged a marriage for him and fully expects Chance to honor the agreement.
Ivy`s spirit in the face of the life before her was quite endearing. Falcon`s self-doubt where Ivy is concerned combined with his hero persona creates the most intriguing of characters. The genuineness of these characters, along with the whit and poise through which Cameron presents them creates an utterly captivating whole.
Overall, this was a great novella that tugged at my heart. It was another fantastic, albeit quick, read from Cameron.
