Oh my goodness...what a book! I have been waiting patiently *ahem* for a new book from Anna Campbell and Seven Nights in a Rogue's Bed did not disappoint! I was a bit nervous about Sidonies secret and how that was all going to play out as it is not a favorite storyline of mine, but it worked so wonderfully with this couple! I adored watching the attraction simmer bright from Jonas and Sidonies first meeting and then the feelings slowly grow as the week went on. Jonas has quite a wall around his emotions and just as Sidonie would break a piece down, it would shift right back into place until it finally all comes crashing down. Sidonie did take a bit of time for be to warm up to with her secret keeping and her refusal to marry based on her sister and mothers lousy marriages. Again, not my favorite troupes but it worked for this story. Jonas...sigh...I loved him. He is stern and gruff on the outside but underneath he is generous, clever and affectionate and Sidonie brings that back for him. When she betrays his trust again, he refuses to let her back in and goes back into his lonely shell but she persists and the ending is definitely a tear jerker. Overall, a delicious treat that was worth the wait! This is a romance filled with love, passion, tenderness, forgiveness and trust all mixed together in a way that will make you forget about the real world and have you cheering for Jonas and Sidonie to find the happiness they so deserve together! And we get just a glimpse of the other two men that will have stories and I know I am back to anxiously awaiting them! 4 1/2 stars
Quote that stuck with me (subject to change in final version):
"Forget what you look like. The total of what you are is so much greater than what you see reflected in all these mirrors."
