Such a great romantic story. I never read the first three in the series, and you don't need to. It's a great stand alone. For a quick, light romance read it had a surprising amount of depth (and heat!). One of my favorite scenes was near the end, so I can't share that with you. But it was all good, I can see why so many have raved about it. I'll need to get the rest of the books in this series.
