    I adore this book, it's one of my favorites. I've reread it multiple times. I really liked Anne, although there were a few times she seemed sorta flighty, I understood her reasoning. Jack? Jack is super swoon-worthy. He knows his way around a woman, and not just physically. I loved his protective streak. And the thoughts he had about Anne? Did I mention swoon-worthy? I liked Grey and Blakes, as well as Sarah and Nell, and Charles and in the end, I even liked Miss Daphne. I loved the parts with S I adore this book, it's one of my favorites.

I liked Grey and Blakes, as well as Sarah and Nell, and Charles and in the end, I even liked Miss Daphne. I loved the parts with Sarah and Neil and Charles and Nell. It also had me laughing out loud repeatedly. It's got a great mystery that is hard to figure out, but doesn't detract from the beautiful and endearing love story. I very highly recommend. <3 "Anne, I'm sorry about your pa… all this time… all that waitin'." "All that time?" she said, taking a step toward him. "You were waiting for him. He was all you ever wanted. I know it, and I'm sorry," he said. "Jack," she said, her voice husky and soft. "It was you," she said. "It was you all that time, all those years. I was waiting… for you." - Jack & Anne 'A woman liked a free rein to walk all over a man's life; the best thing a man could do was pick a woman who walked carefully.' -Jack He lifted his mouth from hers and trailed kisses across her face. "One of these days, I'm gonna kiss every freckle on you. That'll take some doing," he said, his breath a caress. -Jack to Anne "You'll never be alone again," he promised. "I'll never leave you." -Jack to Anne

    DNF. I could only get through the first 120 pages then quit. It may have gotten better, but I came to conclusion that I just didn't care how this book ended or who the bad guy was. By the time I quit the book the hero and heroine were still hardly developed and had only exchanged a handful of meaningless dialog, and there wasn't anything in the story compelling me to care about these two. The heroine hardly spoke or interacted with anyone without just standing there like a fence post. Maybe it g DNF. I could only get through the first 120 pages then quit.

Maybe it got better, but after nodding off twice while reading this book, I decided to move on to another novel I've been itching to read. I am sure there are many who would enjoy this slower paced book, but it was not for me.

    Wow. This was a truly great book. The twists were totally unexpected, several things occurred near the end that was just one shock after another. The characters were well-developed and extremely likable. And the hero's friends deserve books of their own. Unfortunately, Ms. Dain says that probably won't happen until western novels regain popularity... I want to read it again...several times, in fact...maybe even right now... :) (This review was written Nov 7, 2004) Note: I did actually pick it up Wow. This was a truly great book.

Although I already knew all the surprises and twists, I still loved it, still rated it a 5, and still enjoyed the suspense. It is an extremely well-written novel.

But as the book progressed, I was leaning more toward the Doc>>> Now I'm not so sure anymore hehe. A few days later: I JUST KNEW IT WAS DOC!!!!!! I had such a hunch about it... hehe In the beginning, I was sure it was Bill. But as the book progressed, I was leaning more toward the Doc>>> Now I'm not so sure anymore hehe.
