This book was very enjoyable. It started out very strong, but fell off the arc in the last third. It got to where it was a bit too over-the-top with perfect circumstances. It was very predictable. I thought the hero's angst was a bit overplayed, and his transformation was almost too stark. Going from a complete hard-hearted rake to a fool in love in too little time.
But otherwise, I really liked it. The writing was good and the sexual tension was palpable. I loved the premise and the characters, and I'll definitely be reading the rest of the books in the series. I do love a good family saga.
