I liked parts of this book and some other parts not so much. Overall, I guess I have to say it was pretty well written. Amelia's father Rafe, was a bully when you get right down to it. Maybe that is one of the parts I didn't like because I don't like bullies. But hey, it was an important part of the story. And more than once I wondered if he was "insane." He was so far from reality, at times it made me wonder. His whole goal seemed to be more riches, more power and to bend everyone to his will. His arrogance at times was unbelievably over the top. And he showed no remorse about it.
The book did have some really good characters in it though, and that included Amelia and Jed. She made an outrageous deal with him but through many trials they worked together and they do get their HEA.
