I really, really, really wanted to like this book. The idea of the series appealed to me and I was looking forward to reading the first book in it. The book started out well, but there really wasn't much development between the hero and heroine in the story. I was over half-way done with the book and the two lead characters had only had a few brief (very brief) conversations. Overall, the story took a long time to develop and I just felt it didn't work. I have the other books in the series in my TBR pile and I do plan on giving them a try at some point. I am just sad to say that I was disappointed in this one.
