The ending was less bitter than I expected. I'm not sure what I expected Harry to have done, but it wasn't as bad as I feared it would be. Foolish, yes but not bad or unforgivable. I waited to read this one until after book 11, Defeated by Love, came out (and book 12, Fight For Love, although that wasn't planned) since I knew this one wasn't going to be their HEA. Here's to hoping Defeated by Love will give them their HEA.
