Good strong story, ending a bit abrupt

The Seventh Season - Cathy Peper

I enjoyed this story but felt the ending was a bit abrupt. Miranda waited for a certain proposal to come, and she is now in her seventh season. She has turned down many in hopes of the one from Jason. Then she meets Derek, an American, who tries to comfort her. He comes up with the idea of making Jason jealous. Their attraction began slow but he treated her like the lady she was. Beatings, thefts, kidnappings, and investigations bring a lot of breath-holding moments. I had the opportunity to read this in one sitting, and I did not want to put it down. The ending between Jason and Derek felt a bit rushed and I did not feel was fully resolved, but it did not take away from all the pages previously.

I received a copy of this story through eBook Discovery, and this is my unsolicited review.
