    Since this author wrote the notorious Stormfire I'm sure most of you will wonder if this book is like that book Rest assured this book is pretty PC and tame There are no rapes or abuse There is a other woman but since the plot is based heavily around a love triangle this couldn't be helped The hero however never sleeps with this other woman while he's with the heroineI thought it was a decent read better than what I've been reading lately
