The Night Before Valentine's Day
Jessica Gomez reviewed on on April 13, It wasn't my favorite holiday historical, but it was a decent way to spend a few evenings. This book starts off heartbreaking and sad. Why the hero is as he is, the thawing that takes place from the clues and revelations that slowly bombard him as he comes to the realization that his whole life is based on a mistruth; and how the diabolical hatred of one man can have a domino effect on so many people.

The author used him as a catalyst for reaching those cold spots inside of Pierce and it was quite effective. I will find it hard to believe that any reader could be unmoved by the scenes in which Jasper and Pierce are together.

I completely enjoyed the sense of humor that was sprinkled throughout the book because it made the hero and heroine seem reachable and real. I liked getting to know them. Jeffries employs to bring her characters to life.
