The mental and sexual treatment of the innocent, sweet, giving, loving, pushover heroine Jane in the hands of our hero, Matthew, was not romantic to me.
While Matthew’s secret was pretty shocking, and the villains were manipulative, I thought these obstacles could be overcome in the love story. So I could not believe Matthew undertook the actions he did in the end. He could have found a better solution in my opinion. The ending disappointed me.
I recall reading books by authors such as Danielle Steele in the 1990’s who weaved a beautiful romance and then bang – a giant obstacle was put in the way of the couple’s happiness. But the obstacles appeared early enough to allow the protagonists book-time to claw their way back to their happy ever after. I admire the courage to take a great risk to do something different in this novel, but it just didn’t work for me. Clearly, it works for others.
I own a 2010 paperback version of this book given to me in 2014. In my copy there is no epilogue.
Unable to access the epilogue on-line (in which reputedly everything is put right), I feel cheated.
The epilogue could be read free on-line in 2010. Now I can’t find a copy.
Having had time to reflect, I no longer care to read the epilogue. Something longer than an epilogue would be needed to redeem the story for me.
I also possess a copy of the prequel novel to this one, and my friend is encouraging me to read that book. I’ll give it a go, and perhaps I’ll love it, because this author actually has talent in the writing department.

The character Matthew had me wanting to scream at him one moment then hug him the next. He had such a tragic past that twisted him up inside that he never let anyone close...until Jane. I loved Jane-she was vunerable and yet strong and it was their weakness for each other and all the obstacles that they had to face to be together that had me hooked.
A lovely, passionate story.
