Did not care for this book and here is why. Alpha, arrogant son of Maximillan Justin Vallerand aka The Griffin starts of tough, strong, a born leader with an attitude and a woman turns him into a spineless, brainless, snivvling worm. Then you have Celia who is his brothers wife by the way, who is killed in route home and she is still a virgin, really??? She is a fearful, airhead, who will always do the stupidest thing and always brings him danger aka harm. I got a headache rolling my eyes so much and I could not wait for the book to be over, I kept hoping it would improve. Then the dead brother is found living, from the description of his death, that would not have happened and then they get a divorce so they can wed others, again that would have never happen in that day and time. Never. So read it if you are bored, but be really bored and desperate.
