    I really enjoyed this. It was technically sci fi romance but it was a planet based story and the planet that if was based on used limited technology. The heroine was incredibly naive which worked well and made sense considering she was "born" or created to be a courtesan and had not really lived as long as her physical appearance suggested and she was only taught what she needed to know to do her "job".She doesn't like her job though and runs away and thus ends up married to the hero who has no idea really of her background. Her lack of real knowledge leads to the major conflict between them. I liked watching her learn and try to find her feet in her new world. The only problem that the book really had was the ending. Like most of this author's books, it ended abruptly. They basically turned to each other, confessed their love and the end. I, like most people, like to read a longer resolution to a story than that. I want them to talk over their issues and tell each other what they love about each other and when they fell in love and stuff like that. This is usually shorted some in KO'Cs books but here it was sort of extreme. Still I enjoyed the book and knew going in that the ending probably wouldn't totally satisfy me so it still gets 5 stars.This book is not a multiple partner book and there is very little sex in this one.

    The only reason I didn't give this the four stars the book deserves was its abrupt ending, it just stopped leaving me wondering what happened to the rest of the story. Apart from the unsatisfactory ending it was a well written, book with likable characters; Jana naivety pulled on the heart strings and her confusion over so many simple things like pregnancy had me saying 'aw bless' her time and time again.

    i STARTED THIS BOOK to take a break from another, it is funny but this has happened now twice with this author, She is my break away from or my go to shall i say lol..... I love her work and know she will give me the break i needed away from Screaming in the Silence by Lydia Kelly , The book is one of those that is hard to take for some.. I will finish it after this much needed break from one of my most favorite authors Kaitlyn O'Connor She ROCKS..I still love this author even though a few of her books I have read lately lack a ending.this rating of three star would have been five if she would have actually written a ending for her book... which she did not.....very sad.. she ending the book with another characters child birth instead of ending the book on the two main characters future or no future... She left the ending up to your own interpretation really...I did not like it..And she is one of my favorite authors..for her to end a book with no ending was a disappointment... I have Noticed this with three of her books now.... TOO BAD....She laid her focus 'Ending' on two other characters who had little to do with the main storylines so the ending left every body who has read this book just hanging.The book had a good storyline and then at the very end she left us haning. I don't understand why she has done this. It is almost as if she just got tired of writing and said the end..And the book does say.... THE END...!

    I absolutely totally adored this book! Not only it's a historical romance "in disguise", meaning that the setting of most of the story is on a planet, Orleans, which is considered backward by comparison to Earth, and its development is up to the 18th century, but it also bears the degree of realism and naturalism that I absolutely adore in Kaitlyn O'Connor's books... For a rabid fan of historical romance that I am, even though I've started getting tired of the classical bodice rippers which seem to conserve rather conventional story lines, this author is a fresh breath of air, not only maintaining the traits that made the old romance novels enjoyable, meaning an alpha hero, a likable heroine, a baby in the mix and a romance story with not too much sparring between the H/h, which manages to set a smile on the reader's face and a wellbeing feeling in his heart. I really like this author, and even though I'm not comfortable with her multiple partners romances, the romances around the classical couple H/h are simply an enjoyable read which I would recommend to anyone searching to disconnect from everyday worries and to find a light story with a happy ending!

    I was split in the middle with this book there were things I like and dislike most of it though I enjoyed. Though the author is fusing sci fi with a hint of historal I found it a bit frustrating mainly the character of Jana don't get me wrong she was an enjoyable character at times but very naive and it's understandable base on the planet she was created on. Alain wasn't a bad guy very likable character for me. The main problem I had with the book was the ending I am getting ready for them to resolve their misunderstanding and it took what seem like a paragraph for them to resolve their issue. I hope I don't sound confusing but like I said I'm split in the middle. This is my second book by the author and I really enjoyed the first book I have read by her. I will be reading more from this author.

    I seriously don't know what to say about this book. I read it all, but more than once I thought about throwing it outside the window in sheer frustration. All the time I've been reading I was immagining bloody death of the characters, Blane's, Alain's but most of all Jana's. She annoyed me so much I couldn't stand her. There were times I almost liked her, but then she would make something infnitely stupid again and the feeling would pass. One more thing - the ending was too short and abrupt.I'm giving it 2 stars for causing all sorts of emotions in me. Even if it was mostly a desire to strangle Jana.

    It could have been a 4 star but only manages 3 because of the abrupt ending. Feels like the author got bored of writing it and just wanted to end it.(view spoiler)[ They do confess their love for each other but what happens to her pregnancy and how she copes with it. Also, the patching up between the brothers is missing.(hide spoiler)]Also, I do not like the cover at all. The girl in the cover looks weird and the heroine in the book is described beautiful, dainty and fair.What I liked about the book is the curious mix of future world with historic setting. That part was unique.

    This book was ... wildly satisfying, if only it didn't have a signature Kaitlyn O'Connor abrupt ending! Gah. I want to know more....... I loved both of the main characters and the brother very much.......What others have said about this book - that if only they had just talked - I don't find to be necessarily true. It would have probably cut off 50 pages, but no more than that, because the heroine was in fact completely clueless due to a lack of social conditioning.

    Jana is a genetically engineered person, designed for the sex trade. She escapes by taking another Jana's place to a remote planet far from Earth. There she is contracted to Alain.Not bad but not my favorite from this author. Still a fun and sexy read, although, I wasn't overly fond of the heroine at times.

    As much as I laughed aloud at the end of this, I was rather pissed that was the end.Why the hell don't people just fricken talk dammit, it so irritates the hell out of me when people assume they know what someone else is thinking. Grrr.I get that without all those "assumptions" this story wouldn't be what it was, but it seemed that was all this story was.

    I am on the fence about this book. It is a sci fi read that has a historical slant (the civilization on the planet embrace Earth's historical pioneer era/technology). Different.The main characters had that feel of an arranged marriage that worked out. Yet I didn't connect with the romantic elements that would have had me believe they DID.

    Orleans in spaceEven though this is a futuristic romance it was more like a southern historical romance. I like Kaitlyn O'Connor's stories but she does have a tendency to end her stories abruptly.

    Interesting story. It ends abruptly without a conclusion. Therefore rated 1 star.,

    Loved this book. Would have given it 5 stars except for the ending. The ending was way too short.

    I wish there was more but at least they had some realizations in the end.

    This was fine right up until the end. There seems to be a try to wrap it up all too quickly. Annoying after there was so much other interesting stuff. It needed at least an epilogue.
