My #1 Favorite book by Julie Garwood

This is a heartwarming story that starts in a London ballroom and ends in a cabin on a Montana Teritory homestead outside a middle-of-nowhere town. It has historical elements that really make this one unique, with constant quotes from Shakespere(sp), glamorization of Daniel Boon and Davey Crocket, "Mountain Men", and the eronious belief that if something has been published in a book it has to be true.

Another great element about this book is the low smut level. The main characters of the story are maried before they even meet on the pages, though they do not know eachother at all, and there is no actual sex until almost half way through the very large book. In an industry that seems to think that a good romance has to have sex by page 90, this is beyond refreshing.

This book has better developed suporting characters than many of Garwood's other books. All of them are well rounded, completely dynamic, and non-2dimentional.

The narator does a good job of getting the character tones right too.

Loved it!

This was just one of those stories that clicked with me.

In the first hour I was concerned that the heroine Taylor was going to be a cookie-cutter Mary Sue, but I was pleasantly surprised when she started showing her flaws. By halfway through she'd developed into a very endearing character that I just couldn't help but root for.

The hero, Lucas, wore all of his vices on his sleeve initially and while he was handsome and mildly chivalrous it was hard to envision him as a Prince Charming. His character development was equally wonderful and geez if he didn't turn out to be everything a girl could want in a man!

Taylor was no wilting flower. The task she had to take on was more than just about any woman could have handled, and Lucas was just the man to champion her. The story is sixteen hours and their romance was not rushed, you really got to see two completely opposite people fall in love with one another and it was absolutely wonderful.

If you're a fan of period romances, be ready to lose sleep because it's really hard to turn off!
