    "An intense romance novel. This may just be suited for the ladies out there. I picked it and read a few chapters but i felt it was not geared towards the male audience but i could be wrong. For the ladies you will just fall in love with the characters and the story line."

Even more so when it's romance, you just have to see how it ends. It's worth a read no matter what sex you might be, I can see men and woman liking this book equally."

The whole thing seemed rather hastily put together and phoned in, as it were. Very unsatisfying, with no real depth and emotions, which rang false almost every time."

The characters are deep for the tpye of novel and there is surprising depth to it. The main female character is the hardest to get past. Bland, annoying and uses poor judgement to a point where it is not realistic. That makes the book less interesting and more annoying. This would be a hit and miss for fans of the genre."

    "You can really get into the characters in this book, which is necessary for a romance. It really takes you right to the time period too. Books like this are why I love historical romances."

    "I have not heard about this book yet, surprisingly, based on reading the whole story about it, it is very interesting and fits well right in as a solution to the problem. I would say the solution is very appropriate and now I feel like getting the book also just to really get in the story because personally, I am loving what I see right now based on a lot of reviews."

    "Scarlett has good reviews and even though not many people have reviewed it, I took a chance and read it myself since I read Gone with the Wind and was curious. It picked up where Gone with the Wind ended and the author did a good job building the story"
