I need to mention that I adore Nalini Singh. It was a no-brainer to try this book in her new series, because I love her other two series. But this book had two things about it that I cannot stand. insta-love AND a virgin heroine, all within the first 50 pages. BARRRRRRFFFFFFFF I hung on and the book did get more engaging, but I just did not like it. This book (and likely the series, tho I'm not closed to trying it again) is not for me.
