This seemed like two different books. Halfway through the book the whole tone of the book changed and the author made it glaringly obvious about what was up with the hero....which made the heroine look dumb. It made it hard to enjoy the book when this happened. Whats up with allll the females? Every single female in here defied there significant other, didn't care about their husbands fears or the well being of their unborn babes, constantly putting themselves in dangerous situations like it was no bid deal and had attitudes that differed from the times they lived in; one female I can understand, not all of them. And then the heroine who can't figure out the heroes trick, all of sudden comes up with a grand plan in a single day that the hero couldn't think of in twenty years? Meh. And the hero goes from cold, tough warrior to sappy love puppy like that! Just a strange book, wouldn't recommend.
