Do not, do not read this book if you are a feminist.

This has to be the most sexist book I have ever read. Heroine is a rape survivor with numerous traumatic experiences in her past. Hero is a male chauvinist who accused heroine of being uptight event though he knows about her rape. Hero believes sex with him will magically cure heroine. Heroine's best friend's husband openly hits on heroine and calls her frigid and best friend is too stupid to realise it. Every man heroine runs into calls her a

Good story. Heroine was a vulnerable woman who has been hurt a lot and hero a loving man who made her believe in love again .
Good premise. Spicy hero - an escort , a hunk who women take along to events and parties. Sounds deliciously naughty.

She is a rich heiress and a hot shot business woman too. Too bad , she suffers a pathetic con job in her first marriage. Result - she hates men, thinks all men are after her money.

She needs to visit her long time friend and her lecherous husband. Idea - take an escort along. The hero happily plays the part, more than convincingly. The heroine is flustered by his charm but obviousl

Okay...she just needed therapy. Of course, if she had done that we wouldn't have what had all the potential to be a really good book and just fell short for me. There was too much craziness, too much alpha male for a wounded woman.

I enjoyed it! It was more believable that she would still be a virgin after all the crap that she went through. I loved how he was with her. Respectful and loving. It was awesome. I can see them living happy forever. Great read.

I have to remind myself that this book was written more than 30 years ago in 1983.

It offered me a glimpse of England back in the was interesting to read Kelly bought a snood from Liberty for her that old fashioned or what haha. The amazing thing is Liberty is still in London today 2017 and I have been there twice before in 2014 and 2015!

What's shocking to me were the sensibilities and how men could get away with calling Kelly 'frigid'/'bitch' in front of other people *gasp* W
Not one of my favourite PJ books but not one of the worst I've read either. Our h was conned by ex husband and attacked for her spondoolies so she has trust issues in addition to that her best friends husband is a complete tool who tries it on with her. Cue trying to hire an escort for the weekend to protect herself. Naturally our H is not an escort but pretends to be so he can get in the h's pants, I mean heart because for him its love at first sight. Cue misunderstanding and melodrama and inte ...more

Alright but nothing really like the description. I liked the hero when he was bringing the heroine out of her funk but didn't really like the heroine, she was way too destructive to herself.
Ha! This didn't age well.
