    Una de las mejores lecturas de romántica del año. Cuando leí la sinopsis pensé que iba a ser una novela triste y llena de drama, pero no fue así. Obviamente hay un conflicto importante, pero la deliciosa personalidad de los personajes hace que sea una lectura entrañable, sensual y muy tierna, con diálogos chispeantes y situaciones de lo más emotivas, que potencian un argumento que, siendo honesta, es bastante simple.Se lleva un punto adicional por sacarnos del contexto histórico de la Inglaterra victoriana (tan usado para estas novelas) y situarnos en Sajonia, con la nobleza alemana de telón de fondo, poco después que Martín Lutero clavara sus 95 tesis en las puertas de la iglesia católica. Esta autora fue un gran descubrimiento, me encantó su forma de escribir. Lamentablemente, por lo que estuve averiguando, su bibliografía no es muy prolífica y además, este es su único libro traducido al español.

    Good, basic romance. Quick read. Very basic 1500s European history worked a little into the story. Nothing complicated, typical romance story (attractive man and woman, both resisting the relationship but can't help falling for each other, everything works out in the end). Not a bad story, not a great story.

    L'époque était très originale et correspond exactement à ce que je suis en train d'étudier (c'est une manière de me justifier de lire alors que j'ai une tonne de boulot qui m'attends ^^').C'est une bonne romance historique que je les aime, avec quelques clichés mais pas trop !

    Agradable historia de amor. Aunque a ratos no se sentía tan real el nivel de atracción que sentían sus protagonistas, la historia me mantuvo atenta y entretenida hasta el final.

    Sabina después de un escándalo y ya arruinada para casarse se ve obligada por su padrastro a estar en un convento luego logra escapar de el para recuperar el legado de su madre pero su padrastro tiene otros planes para ella la mantiene encerrada y la obliga a casarse con Wolf un hombre viudo que coaccionado por el padrastro de Sabina acepta el arreglo. La verdad es que al prncipio me sentí sumamente intrigada por la historia pues me cautivo pero al pasar las paginas fue decayendo en mucho mi interes pues el romance no me lo creí la verdad me dio a entender que Wolf nunca olvido por completo a su esposa difunta y ya se quedo con Sabina por no dejar lo que se me hizo triste por ambas partes tambien el misterioso secreto por el que fue coaccionado Wolf por el padrastro de Sabina se me hizo demasiado tonto. Pero bueno lectura amena sin embargo me costo un poco llegar hasta el final por lo antes mencionado.

    Dans l'ensemble c'est un bon roman avec quelques éléments qui m'ont un peu dérangée Il y a une contexte historique très (trop?) dense et important dans le livre. Ce qui est intéressant ici c'est que l'histoire se déroule dans un lieu et dans un contexte assez inhabituel dans ce genre de roman. Les personnages sont très touchant j'aime beaucoup les trois frères. J'ai eu un peu de mal avec le passé du personnage masculin, le côté veuf éploré j'ai été à la fois touchée et en même temps triste pour l'héroïne qui doit se forger une place auprès d'un homme pour qui elle ne peux pas être "la seule femme au monde".Pour finir j'ai trouvé que par moment l'histoire des personnages était un peu trop expédiée. Certains passages auraient sans doute mérité qu'on s'y attarde un peu plus. J'ai quand même passé un très bon moment

    A frustrating book. Pretty well done, with excellent historical detail, set in a time and place not usually covered. The book went very well, up to the point Wolfgang reveals what happened to Sabina's inheritance. To that point we are told over and over how important this is to Sabina, and how her whole future is wrapped up in using this money. Then in like 5 minutes she does a 180 and it just doesn't matter to her, and is not event mentioned until the end when Wolfgang fixes it all up. I'm sorry, but the scene in her bedroom where this takes place just does not fit. She goes from heroic to wimp instantly, and it just changed the whole character of the book. I almost dropped it to 2 stars. would have, if the rest hadn't been so well done. You can tell it ticked me off. I was disappointed.

    Una novela que no ha estado nada mal. No tiene cuatro estrellas porque no ha sabido aprovechar la oportunidad que le daba ubicar la historia en Sajonia durante la formación del protestantismo. Al final es la típica historia de amor de un matrimonio entre personas que se conocen en día de la boda y se aman casi desde entonces.

    Free download so I really can't complain. Good chemistry between hero and heroine, but I'm really tired of "feisty" heroines who are in reality passive doormats to the hero's alpha behavior. Interesting setting - 15th century post-Reformation Germany. Would think twice about paying for future titles by this author, but for free it was not a bad guilty pleasure read.

    This ebook was free when I downloaded it from Barnes and Noble to my Nook library. I enjoyed the historical setting in Wittenberg and the history lessons contained in this novel. I downgraded it to three stars because it made this prude blush enough I give it an R (or TV-MA-S) rating.

    I didn't know this was a romance novel in the sense that it is basically porn in book form. But, even with skipping over those parts, it was a decent read. Wouldn't recommend it if you don't like the whole romance genre.

    This was a pretty good book, which I didn't expect since it was free! I like how the author fused so much history into the story without info-dumping and how this storyline was completely tied up, but still managed to leave enough questions for another story.

    A very enjoyable story with well developed characters. The perseverance of Sabina is amazing while Wolfgang fights letting go of the past in order to embrace his new life/wife. I'd recommend to anyone who enjoys a historical romance.
