I'm very glad I didn't let my distaste for the first book in this series (A Night To Surrender) keep me from trying this one, because it was delightful. A lovely wallflower/rake pairing, with suitably tragic backstory and bonus dinosaurs! Nobody was overly possessive or overly dumb (though we edged a bit close to the "I know what's best for you" line a time or two, and the levelheaded scientist "just knows the lizard is a girl" what whaaaat?); there were Wacky Hijinx on the Road. It's the sort of novel I would recommend to people who are already inclined to like romance novels, not an introduction to romances, but it is a sweet little read nonetheless.
