      Because I love you beyond thinking or telling; beyond duty or justice or pride of class; more than the service of my king, the towers of my father's house, or the cool and shining glories of France itself." "I am bound to you and you to me. Why else were we born? Why else did the fates send you here and deliver me to you? Why else did you save my life unless it was to let me love you?"Moving, right?But this is just one of, unfortunately, only a few highlights in this supposedly historical romanc [...]

      3.5 starsDespite what the book description at GR says, Cyrene Nolté does not live with her "two brothers", she lives with smugglers voyageurs Pierre, Jean and Gaston Breton (Gaston is Jean's son). The story is set in New Orleans during the colonial period; the year is not named, but Louis XV is king and Madame Pompadour is mentioned so I guess somewhere in the mid 1750s? Cyrene's mother died of sickness on the voyage to the Louisiana colony, and her father is presumed dead after falling into th [...]

      Okay story line, thought the heroine was too stubborn and very unrealistic.

      Cyrene Nolte lives on a Louisiana flat boat with two brothers, Pierre and Jean Breton, who took her in after her father drowned and her mother died of illness. Jean’s son Gaston is about her age but she thinks of him as a brother. They work as boatmen but smuggle goods between the English, the French and the Natives. The three men watch her very carefully to preserve her honour. This is a bit annoying for Cyrene.Ridding herself of her inconvenient chastity could be difficult. If no man was all [...]

      I enjoyed this historical set on the Mississippi River near and around New Orleans early 1800's. There was quite a bit of action and intrigue between the main character's. Our hero is rich and connected and able to manipulate the heroine and keep secret's and is a rather complicated character. I appreciate that. The Heroine is capable and smart and totally not fooled by the hero so there is a spark between them that causes believable tension. I learned about flatboats, French political turmoil w [...]

      Cyrene saves a notorious womanizing rake, Rene Lemonnier, from the river while she lives with her over-protective guardians, the Breton brothers. What she asks for in repayment sweeps Rene into becoming her protector besides her lover. In the 1800s in the French colonies of Louisiana politics, pirates, passion and betrayal set even the wildest of hearts ablaze. Very few get out alive, especially with the grandest treasure of all—true love. Cyrene and Rene must fight hard to win all or risk los [...]

      Pretty good. Enjoyed it mostly, but wasnt outstanding. Well written story and pretty decent plot. Romance was good. Characters were good. I would recommend.I read this book a second time and want to add that the intrigue in this plot unfolds with excellence by this gifted writer. There is a surprise ending that I hadnt foreseen. The historical background is wonderful. The romance is tense.

      I almost never read romances or historical fiction, but I enjoyed this view into settlement history. Cyrene seeks personal and financial independence despite the severe limitations on women's roles. Story moved along nicely and sex scenes satisfying without being overly explicit. A nice introduction to the genre, for me.

      This was one of the dumbest books I have ever read! The main female character is a spoiled selfish brat completley unaware of her feelings and emotions. The writing was so bad it was as if I was reading Fifty shades again. Complete waste of time!

      I enjoy lots of books; however Jennifer Blake just enthralled me with her romance. She put real thought into all of her books. I enjoy the added historical data from the books. Great read.

      It was just OK for me. I felt the story was rather slow.

    • Natalya says:

      The plot is contrived and drama leading to her chastity event utterly irritating.

      The plot twists had my mind spinning. Who could be trusted? What is the truth? This is a good mystery and love story. There was a lot of description so it felt like you could picture everything.

      LOTS of typos
