Kassandra whirled to face the arrogant military man she’d hoped never to see again, remembering all too clearly his kisses that lingered like molten honey on her lips. To admit it was her innocence he’d stolen in a moment of blazing passion would ruin her father’s diplomatic career and forever destroy her reputation.
Stefan nearly shouted in triumph. He’d searched throughout Vienna for the beguiling tavern wench who had aroused him past endurance, and here she stood like a shimmering goddess...no tavern wench but a lady of the Imperial court. He must have her--he would have her!—if only to safeguard her honor by making her his wife.

Ending was a bit abrupt. Other than that, great book! Especially one that's free.
How wrong is it to make the reader think that any rape is suppose to be romantic n will have a happy ending? A victim will not feel desire for someone that is raping them no matter how attractive that person is. In the end, the hero is awful, he never even apologized for what he did. We are just expected to believe that he is forgiven because he is too good looking. I think not. I know that this was in a different era but rape should never be condoned or portrayed in a romantic angle. This book just made me angry at the heroine and the hero.
I love Miriam's books excluding this. I skimmed because it got so dull.
