Fabulous story. Read it in one sitting. Loved the hero. Heroine was a bit of a dipstick but came good in the end.
Great blackmail story ( not by the hero but others). Lynn Graham has woven an interesting romance filled with an intricate plot and like I said, a fabulous hero!
Excellent book,Damiano was kidnapped and presumes dead but now he is returning after 5 years and comes to know he wife has moved out of the house and when he asks his family they show him the tabloid story of her n another man and he believes the paper and what ever lies his family tells him about Eden,he has lots to work on his insecurities and what ever his family n gossips are around and Eden's saying she is innocent all this confuses him,he believes what he sees and does'nt trust Eden

Eden be
Meh. OTT, much? psycho in-laws of h played to the max, including the H. I mean he's getting off from making his wife jealous and forces his wife to live in the same house with his bro (and assorted family) AND his sis PLUS his ex is free to visit? WTF.
Damiano returns after being gone for 5 years having been kidnapped when doing business in a volatile third world nation.

Interesting story about how two people work to put back together a marriage that had been on the rocks prior to his departure. Damiano was actually a terrific hero. Five years of captivity has given him time to understand and prioritize what really matters in life and he comes home willing to fight for his marriage.

What I couldn't get past, was the heroine's weakness. She was
Finally a virgin who is that way on principle and a realistic look at the marital sex life (usually the stuff of very unlikely fantasy) of a shy, insecure virgin and an very experienced man. (Marriage Meltdown had it but that hero was a bigger jerk and didn't really love his wife). The story was caught between hero wanting to rage with jealousy over wife's "cheating" and having to occasionally address the fact that it wouldn't actually have been cheating! Lost a star for me when he said he would ...more
Reconciliation story. Husband reappears after getting lost for 4 years in a political quagmire in SA country. In-laws and girlfriend from hell. Wished she just threw a bloody tantrum instead of suffering in silence.
i'm a huge fan of LG but this one did not do 4me. it's actually gud but i can't stand such a wimpy n pathetic heroine ! u can be a prude but u dunt have 2 let every1 walk over u !! dats what she did. i dunt c how damiano cud remain in love wid her after such a bad past. eden was a useless wife, pathetic n problematic. damiano did not understand his wife n was jealous. what i liked abt the book was dat he does not plan 2 divorce his wife even if he had doubts abt her fidelity. he was ready 2 4giv ...more

Far and away my all-time favourite M&B/Harlequin romance and I can't quite put my finger on why that should be. Is it the Cinderella factor? The second chance? The reunion? The amazing chemistry and his swoon-worthy obsession of her, which even five years of absence couldn't dilute? Oh yes, definitely that last one.

Perhaps it is little formulaic when it comes to characterisation but then it is a M&B romance, and I like my romances the way I like my chocolate - smooth and creamy. You can
Nice reconciliation story, lots of angst and nice hero and heroine. Hero's family was family from hell though! Plus heroine was not very clever. Her husband was crazy jealous of her best male friend and she had no idea. Also her best male friend was an asshole so she should listen to her husband more since she was so naive. Still loved them both and the cute twins epilogue! aww!
I really enjoyed this one. Not run of the mill. Lots of emotions running high. Very much worth a read.
All the characters in this book were against the h. I felt so sorry for her. I guess this is yet another disappointing read. I'm in such a slump:(
I really liked this book...
LG is one of my fav harlequin writers...
i really like the heroine, she was everything i like in a girl, which i think is ideal n should be there..
she was loving , patient, emotional, strong, sympathetic....
hero was nice too...
the most hateful person in this book was tina...
she's a no good bitch...
i wanted to slap her to the next week...

Totally recommended

Must read

I liked this one a lot. I was worried the hinted-at misunderstanding (photos supposedly showing the heroine cheating, though she didn't) would be the focus of the book and the hero would spend most of it berating her, but it wasn't like that at all. Instead, good emotion and angst.
he was missing and presumed dead for 5 years
