I received this book for an honest review. Lillian is a strong heroine. She is a great warrior and all acknowledge her skills. Her biggest weakness is her desire to keep from hurting the reputations of others. From the get go, Dorian knew what he wanted and that was Lillian. Despite all of her roadblocks, some of which caused him to think twice, Dorian worked his positive attitude and slowly broke through. This was a wonderful story, and I look forward to reading more of this series.
