This book is not typical for me. I picked it up at the general store in our cottage town (population 500) because I absolutely needed a book. I didn't look at the publisher (Harlequin) until after I was back at the cottage. The story itself was intriguing, but the 8-paged sex scene was a bit much. Not that I don't enjoy a little steamy detail every here and there, but 8 pages just isn't for me.
