My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This was a really good book. I enjoyed the give and take between Deacon and Felicity/CiCi and watching them fight their attraction. Might I say, what an attraction. They have a 200+ years relationship that is very complex. They've both hurt the other so many time through the years, and when the truth behind a lot of the hurt comes out, it's going to be painful. And costly. When the cost is sound out for solving one of their problems, it's not even a question whether it will be done. It takes that revelation for them both to realize their true feelings about many of the things that have kept them apart. When Deacon and CiCi do give in, it's supremely intense and sooo satisfying. I want to say more, but don't really know how without giving away too much. It's really good, and kept me glued to the pages until the end.
