Ah I love it when you have a heroine who just wants to be loved and a hero who is afraid to love. Raoul is torn between wanting to be happy yet afraid of what it will do to him again. Now Kris she is an unusual character in this book. Each time she wants to go she finds an excuse to stay which is good. Yet there is so much what ifs in the book she sometimes sways from what she really wants with Raoul.
Beryl Trebble did a nice job in the book bringing in an evil villain like Isabella. Great book and yes definite aptly titled.
