After having read Her Wicked Ways I was intrigued to see what would happen with Jasper, he seemed as cold as his father, but would have unexpected moments of kindness. In this book you get to see underneath the mask and see how compassionate he is and I really liked him. Olivia was also a good character, practical and tough after taking care of herself for since she was 14.
The only problem I had with this book was that I just didn’t see them as a couple. They had great sexual chemistry with culminated in some really good steamy scenes, but I didn’t feel the love. They spent most their time not really trusting each other and Jasper was rather horrid to Olivia, and Olivia kept lying to him, not the basis for a great relationship.
But overall I did enjoy this book and I can’t wait to read the next book about Jasper’s friend the Vicious Viscount, Lord Ambrose Sevrin.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
