Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

It is possible that this would be enjoyable to someone who had read the rest of the Lady Trent Stories, but it definitely does not stand on its own. It's essentially a message (women are as good as men) without a story, and that's a deadly combination, no matter how worthy the message is.

  1. I thought this was a fun little story. I'm sure I'd have more insight if I'd read the books, but they're certainly not a prerequisite. It does make me want to read the books. Of course, that's what it's meant for, as well as being an extra for those already hooked.
