My Thoughts:
After reading Small's Friarsgate series and enjoying it I thought I would give the Border bride's trilogy a chance. The story started off fairly well and until I got to the middle of the book and I started to think wait a minute where have I read this before. well it turns out that Small tends to use the same outline for most of her stories. All the heroines have to bathe in big oak tubs. Most of them have about 2 husbands before they find thier true love. There is alot more sex in this book than I would have liked and some of the language was a bit much . It seem like to me every other chapter the characters were hitting the sheets.
I have a few more of Smalls book to read before I decide if she is one of my favorites or not.
