Surprisingly good! I was not a big fan of Taboo and hesitated about buying this one, but it was a bargain book and I needed one more item for the free shipping:-)Glad I bought it. Quick enjoyable read. It read more like a typical historical romance with some added steam. Found that it did not matter that I had not read the first Albright Sister's book, so it can be read stand alone. Think I will go ahead and read Miranda's story next.
