I couldn’t put it down. Jul 20, Andre rated it really liked it. Truthfully, I cant remember any of it The success of The Flame and the Flower prompted a new style of writing romance, concentrating primarily on historical fiction tracking the monogamous relationship between a helpless heroines and the hero who rescued her, even if he had been the one to place her in danger.
