Buy: Amazon. I viewed it as a subject book, hence had no desire or intention to ever attempt reading it. Neither the title nor the book cover is appealing enough to attract a romance-crazy reader. Instead of going to bed, Raina stays up for a while. She hears a couple of gunshots and then notices a man entering her room through the half-closed balcony door. Many soldiers fight for money and most are afraid of dying; experienced ones do whatever it takes to save their lives. Though, the information provided by Bluntschli infuriates Raina, she still provides Bluntschli, safe escape route with the help of her mother.
