Heat Factor: It’s a closed door, mild heat. Sweet, but not overtly sexy.
Character Chemistry: It’s friendship to devotion, with some light tension.
Plot: Narilla is desperate to establish her legitimacy with the upper echelons of society after a lifetime of watching her mother’s rejection for marrying a merchant. Jovian is a good-hearted and talented masonry artisan who is also, as it turns out, a thief who steals Narilla’s birthright.
Overall: This was a really well-written and sweet love story and a strong follow up to the other two in this series.
