Classic NR style. Enjoyable, sweet, tender and quite emotional. Reminded me of Blue-Eyed Devil since they're both about heroines abused by their husbands and who had the strength to get away. This one is much more to my liking, since the heroine was a lot stronger than the one in Kleypas's book though. Will certainly read/listen to the second in the series since the narrator did a very good job with it.
