Not quite the naughty fairy tale I was expecting (really found it a stretch to connect this in anyway to Rapunzel. Convent=tower? Honestly, I've no idea.), but still entertaining. My biggest problem was the sudden death of Robert, Angelica's husband. I understand why it had to happen, and I was okay with it happening, it just came out of nowhere. Never had his wound been alluded to as life-threatening (painful, debilitating, yes. Could kill him at any moment, no.), and yet, he was suddenly bed-ridden and wasting away. I did wonder briefly if he was all noble suicide guy, but if there were clues to that in the text, I missed them. Despite my problems with the story, and I had a few, they weren't enough to hugely detract from my enjoyment of the tale. This was my first Lila DiPasqua book, and I'm certain it won't be my last.
