I have to start by saying I am a devoted DP fan. All her books are on my keeper shelf.This one was a huge disappointment to me. The dialogue was silly and dated. There was no real conflict (other than a nasty ex-boyfriend) and no chemistry or sexual tension between the Cappie and Bentley. Usually I like to savor her books, but I just wanted this one to be over.When I first bought it, I thought it would be a good one...a nice (and lengthy) addition to the series. The main story is only 199 pages long. The rest of this 377 page volume is a "bonus book" - a reprint of 1984's Passion Flower.Hoping for a better experience with her next book.
