I went in to reading these books, feeling fairly skeptical, but have found a new author I enjoy reading because of it. Despite the quite unbelievable fantasy realm depicted, she did an admirable job of bringing it to life, and bringing a sense of uniqueness to the various races within her world. The characters themselves were well developed, with both flaws and virtues, and within their creation their behavior was quite believable, ***isting in the suspension of disbelief. Further more, the humor with which she writes is refreshing. It's not over the top slapstick, but it is campy at times. It works well though, with how she writes it in. Obviously, as this is in the romance genre - you won't be looking for great mystery solving or overly deep plots, but you will find a fun read that keeps you going to the end. I'll be looking for more of her books now!
