Okay I'm going to be honest...I avoid Mary Calmes books at all costs. That doesn't mean she is a lousy writer. It means she's not the writer for me. I decided to give Old Loyalties, New Love a chance, I mean for $1 I'd give it a go. I enjoyed parts of this one. Quade & Roman are wonderful together and when they were the focus.l yum. Of course the world building was rushed for me. The story itself moved to fast and opportunities were missed but I did feel for a lite read it worked.
