Having read romance novels since my teens, I understand that it is difficult to come up with something new when so many are being written every year. This story line felt like something I've read before. Well written, but I agree with other reviewers who were disappointed by the fact that this was the first of Tamera's books that does not come under the category of clean romance. I had not expected that. Perhaps the pressure to sell an ever increasing number of books is behind this? One star for that reason.
