This is a thoroughly grown up love story and I loved every moment of it. Caitlin Crews always writes fantastic stories, but this is her best.

Caitlin Crews A highly enjoyable outing from Ms Crews written from an unusual angle. Azrin and Kiara knew from the outset in their marriage what the eventual position would be but never realised just what the difficulties would be when Azrin became King. It is hard to be critical of the fascinating Azrin in the circumstances but he was slightly unreasonaable and unapprochable while against this the endearing Kiara should have been prepared to make allowances. It was nice that she had her eyes fully open to her mother's machinations and didn't fall for them. The plot moves at a good pace with nice dialogue and it was great to see some originality. You are drawn in right from the start and find yourself rooting for the couple to make it. Possibly the author's best book to date. Ten out of ten


Rating By Victoria,19/06/2012

An outstanding read from the utterly charming opening through the emotional complexities of life and finding peace in true love. I fell head-over-heels for Azrin from the moment he hit the page - not an easy feat for a powerful Presents hero. The settings were also wonderful, most notably the ten pools adding a beautifully exotic feel to the read. Caitlyn's writing packs a hefty emotional punch that can make you laugh out loud one minute and bring tears to your eyes the next. Although I have to say, unusually, I felt a great deal more empathy for Azrin than Kiara which only served to make this book one of the best Presents I've read in years. Without doubt the authors best to date.
