Found this to be a wonderful, touching (and yes, steamy) read. Would have given it 5 stars, but felt there was just something missing. As another reviewer here noted, there is no explanation for why the heroine stays with her abusive husband until he is accidentally killed by a drunk driver. I really wanted to know more of her background. The 'why's' were a big missing factor in this story. But, aside from that, really liked this one!
