Read full description of the books:
This was not a bad read, but nowhere as good as The Duke's Wager. It was fascinating to read nonetheless because Sinjun was the Duke's Rival in TDW, and neither him nor the duke was hero material. Both were very selfish and spoiled and especially sinjun was made out to be extremely nefarious. I didn't see a way to his redemption after reading the last book, but redemption he received. The only problem for me was that he seemed to have had his redemption somewhere along the way before he got his own book. I would have liked to see him being transformed into a better man in his own story. I felt cheated with only being told of how sorry he felt of his past mistakes and allude to him being a better man. All in all though the book did keep my interest, but I think it had a lot to do with the fact that I knew how far he came from being the type of man he used to be. Other readers definitely need to read The Duke's Wager to appreciate him better in this book. I cannot leave without saying how exceptional the writing was. Edith Layton will be truly missed.

Read information about the authorEdith Layton wrote her first novel when she was ten. She bought a marbleized notebook and set out to write a story that would fit between its covers. Now, an award-winning author with more than thirty novels and numerous novellas to her credit, her criteria have changed. The story has to fit the reader as well as between the covers.
Graduating from Hunter College in New York City with a degree in creative writing and theater, Edith worked for various media, including a radio station and a major motion picture company. She married and went to suburbia, where she was fruitful and multiplied to the tune of three children. Her eldest, Michael, is a social worker and artist in NYC. Adam is a writer and performer on NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me. Daughter Susie is a professional writer, comedian and performer who works in television.
Publishers Weekly called Edith Layton "one of romance's most gifted writers." Layton has enthralled readers and critics with books that capture the spirit of historically distant places and peoples. "What I've found," she says, "is that life was very different in every era, but that love and love of life is always the same."
Layton won an RT Book Reviews Career Achievement award for the Historical genre in 2003 and a Reviewers' Choice award for her book The Conquest in 2001. Amazon.com's top reviewer called Layton's Alas, My Love (April 2005, Avon Books), "a wonderful historical." And her recent release, Bride Enchanted, is a Romantic Times 2007 Reviewers' Choice Award Nominee.
Edith Layton lived on Long Island where she devoted time as a volunteer for the North Shore Animal League , the world's largest no-kill pet rescue and adoption organization. Her dog Daisy --adopted herself from a shelter-- is just one member of Layton's household menagerie.
Edith Layton passed away on June 1, 2009 from ovarian cancer.
