Another enjoyable Jordan book. Emotional tone, sexual chemistry, & sex scenes kept my reading exciting. I liked heroine's long-lasting love for Hero & didn't compromise herself with other less desirable men in the meantime & kept herself work-focused instead. The same can be somewhat said of Hero who likewise pined for heroine. He confessed to staying celibate for years for her but it isn't clear whether he stayed celibate since that one time he & heroine made love when she was 19. I liked the emotional tension from heroine & Hero's pining for the other yet both thinking that the other was with someone else or didn't return their love. Their big misunderstandings added to the tension & their discussion & confessions of love at the end made for a good culmination.
