Just begun to read this historical and romantic book yesterday. Now on the page 52 of 290. That far has been very sensible and interesting. Can't wait reading more this.

Generally I like quite much Kaari Utrio's books. She's quite well known in Finland writing historical fiction.

There's one thing to be said for constant turmoil in one's life...It got easier and easier o remain standing when she felt like falling down.


His life was like a mountain- a long, rough climb through jagged peaks, then getting to the top only to find a valley on the other side.

"I've developed an interest in geological studies and the search for fossils. And I am hoping to get an article published through the American Philosophical Society."

"A society? About fossils?" Rafe asked.

"The Proceedings is their quarterly journal."

Rafe grunted.

She reached a level spot, and when Rafe came down next to her, she leaned close and whispered, "I believe my findings might make me eligible for the Magellanic Premium." Julia felt the excitement shining out of her.

"You don't have a brain in your head, do you?" Rafe sound sad but resigned, the idiot.

Closer and closer to the DNF line.

Julia turned and Rafe was only inches away. He said, "We should use ropes. Tie ourselves together. Then when you fall I can save you."

That was nice.

Disrespectful, definitely doubtful, slightly sneering even, and she was very tempted to punch him in the nose. But his underestimation of her was rooted in his wanting to keep her alive, so there were heroic overtones to his sneering.

And that was nice.

I am so close to the DNF stage I can taste it.

“The word ‘conquest’ implies a great degree of effort. Can I help it if they just . . . fall at my feet?” He tried and failed to suppress a smile that was, admittedly, rakish.
(..)
“They fall at your feet? The way birds plummet from the sky in a proverbial biblical plague?”
He whistled, impressed. “Not even my sister has yet thought to call me a biblical plague.”
