4 1/2 stars.
It would have made 5 stars, but although I loved Victoria and Jason, they got on my nerves at times with all the misunderstandings. Jason was an oh so tortured type hero, but he was just plain mean through most of the story. But as with most tortured heroes, WE knew why he was acting the way he did and we forgive him for it :) My heart bled for poor Uncle Charles even though he brought all his problems upon himself. It seemed as if JM was leading up to a sequel with Victoria's sister, but I don't see that there is one. That is a shame as I feel like we were left hanging with all that.
