This is the second Harlequin I've read by Cherry Adair. I really liked the first, so I gave this one a shot. The plot is alone is very Harlequin, but I was impressed by the characters. There were times I didn't like Joshua, but his story made perfect sense with his personality. Jessie was great. She was no weak woman that always bent for her man. She had spunk and depth of character.Would recommend to all Harlequin fans.
