Penny Jordan was one of my all time favorite HP authors for many years. But something happened. I guess her books lost that emotional depth that attracted me. I have liked some of her recent reads, but I haven't loved any. But this book is the first in a long time that I felt that pull from. I admit she's not for everyone. She has the very angst-ridden, emotionally-tortured heroines who live in their pasts way too much. If you like Penny Jordan, then you're prepared for that going in.

That was one of the dumbest books I've ever read. The reasons that the heroine was kept away from her father were the most asinine I've ever read. The idea that the hero's comments to her when she was 16 caused her to doubt her sexuality etc., seemed like it would be an interesting twist but the author didn't follow through very well. Kind of like she sort of suggested it and suddenly from one vague sentence the hero totally understood that he had destroyed the heroine's sex life until she was a ...more

The story is of Fiss, who after her father (whom she has never met) passes away is named in his will. She travels to Spain in order to see and secure her inheritance and hoping to learn a little about the father she was never allowed to meet. As we discover Fliss's father was adopted into the aristocratic Spanish family the male character Vidal is the head of. Her father had an affair with Vidal's Au pair (Fliss's mother), which was revealed quite innocently by Vidal to his matriarch grandmother ...more

Excellent book. I really liked the interplay between Felicity Clairemont and the dark Spaniard, Duque Vidal y Salvadores.

Years ago, Vidal saw Fliss in a compromising situation and made some assumptions about her character - all of which were incorrect. Vidal kept her from knowing her Spanish father and cut her off from all of the Spanish members of her family. Now that her father has passed on, Fliss comes to Spain to visit her father's estate. What she learns in the process has the power to cha

This book is so close to what I like about the old school PJ style. Penny is not for every reader or every HP reader for that matter, but for those of us who GET her, this is definite food for our nostalgia.

23yo heroine goes to Spain to see the house her father whom she regrettably never met willed to her. She’s not that surprised that 30yo Hero would outmaneuver her plans since he’s had a history of doing that in the past by causing his parents to be separated & her to miss out on getting to know her father. Since he caught her in bed being groped by a teenage boy when she was 16, Hero believes she’s promiscuous & tells her so. Heroine tries to match his disdain by throwing back accusation ...more

The heroine Felicity travels to Spain so as to claim her inheritance from her father whom she adores but has never met. When she gets there she meets again with Vidal, the man she considers responsible for the estrangement of her parents. The hero insults her because he caught her red handed trying to have sex in her mother's room when she was still 16 and the heroine hates him for ruining her family and preventing her from having a relationship with her father. Even though they try to deny thei ...more

This was an ok book. There was a lot of things that just aggravated me and the characters were very prideful. This felt slow moving too. It was written well and had a good plot though. It just couldn't really keep me interested. Plenty of head-knocking moments warranted. Good luck

Quite old-school but still enjoyable. Nice setting and reunion romance. Heroine a little full on with the hatred on her father's family.

I liked the book. It was sweet and romantic. It's nice how they meet in Spain and fall in love there.

I thought the story was OK. Just, OK.

Felicity is evidently a massive klutz because most of the times she ends up in Vidal's arms is when she is in the middle of a fall over something. Fliss was never allowed to meet her father, and she had believed Vidal had kept her one letter to her father from him.

The reasoning why her father was never in her life is questionably vague. Maybe it's a cultural thing, but it seemed more the product of weak character.

Vidal had formed misconceptions about Felici

This book was mostly ok for what it is, but several points, like the hero constantly calling the heroine a slut after she was nearly raped, were massively disappointing. The 'stormy' relationship of the title is definitely there, but any of the nicer parts of this book are buried under recriminations and uncalled for misunderstandings. Ok to read, but not something I'd really recommend.

Felicity "Fliss". Well, she, got into an awful lot of assumptions.

The story was good, I think. A stormy Spanish romance!
