"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

The Traitor by Grace Burrowes

The Traitor - Grace Burrowes

This book and series is why I am so miserly handing out stars, I want there to be a clear distinction between 2stars (ok) and 4stars (great emotional reads). I haven't read the third in the series yet but I can already tell, I'm going to be begging for these to come out in hardback. Cherished story, cherished characters, and cherished experience.

There are a lot of wonderful reviews on this already and as I'm behind on ARCs I simply don't have the time to dedicate to writing a review I feel worthy (just short of blood and tears went into the review I wrote for the first book in the series,lol). Suffice to say, I didn't quite like this second one as much as the first; there seemed to be a weaker bond between me and the characters, the middle dragged on a wee bit, and the true villain was dispensed of in a very unsatisfactory way. However, Ms. Burrowes has written a series that is leaps and bounds ahead of a lot of her predecessors.

I will end with, there is the perceived truth, truth in lies, personal truths, the truth, and the damn truth. This series encapsulates them all and I can't wait until I can read the third book.
