Wonderful book! On my first read I thought it was romantic how he took care of her when she was injured, which I still do but as I'm listening to it, I'm taking the heroine's side more on this because up until a little more than halfway of the book he only wanted her to become his kept woman and not his wife. I can see why she didn't want this and was hoping for something better. I don't remember the first reading me globbing on to the fact.
I'm working my way through the series via audiobook.
