I have read all of Lorraine’s books and loved everyone of them. She writes a beautiful love story with marvelous passion, great adventure, a plot that is intelligent and moves at a enjoyable pace. This is the first in a new series called The Hellions of Havisham that includes beloved characters from her other books. Anything Lorraine writes is worth the price!!!
