 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
One cannot imagine how devastating it would be to find yourself left at the altar. That's what happens to Shaan in this book. And the person who delivers the news is the man who thought Shaan was unsuitable as his brother's bride, Rafe Danvers. Yet Rafe is there to pick up the pieces, and support this jilted bride. Surprised isn't the word for how Shaan feels when Rafe suggests she marry him instead. But she says yes.

This is a slightly older Harlequin Presents, with the mood and the content that...more

4.5 stars.

It is the heroine Shaan's wedding day, but instead of being newly married she is in emotional termoil after he would-be- brother-in-law Rafe, the hero, tells her that her fiance has left with other woman. Not really knowing what to do, Shaan let's Rafe take her away from all the confusion, but she is shocked out of her reverie when Rafe asks her to marry him instead. Shaan has always thought that Rafe disapproved of her, but he makes a good case for them both marrying in order to save...more

The angst was delicious and u could cut the tension between H/h with a knife! I couldn't put this book down! I'm not a fan of love triangles but MR sure knows how to engage a reader!

The story opens with the bride in a fit of hysteria after being jilted at the altar by her betrothed. (Who could blame her) The brother steps in to salvage the situation and offers her marriage to save face. She is in such a stupor and agrees to his proposition even though she is not sure the Hero even likes her. In fact, she accuses the Hero of not wanting her to marry his brother because she is of mixed race. Her father being from the middle east and her mother being English.

Of course, they ma...more

Instant bridegroom...

Shaan had been jilted! She'd been left at the altar by Piers Danvers...but Rafe Danvers was waiting to step right into his half brother's shoes. Older, darker, stronger and head of the Danvers business empire, it was Rafe who had persuaded Piers to abandon Shaan. Now, with the same ruthless determination, Rafe insisted that she become his bride instead!

Dazed, Shaan accepted his proposal, but she was also confused: until this moment Rafe had acted as if he despised her. Sudd...more

I just finished reading this story for maybe the one thousand time so I thought to give it a review. This novel really, really tops every thing I've ever read in my entire life and I've read a lot, the hero 'Rafe' is my idol, I really adore him he's such a strong character.
And the most amazing part of this novel is the little bits in it, the way the writer dive into the emotions and feelings that goes about in this wonderful novel. The phrases that she used to describe what's going on, the chara...more

Just, ewww! Okay, it wasn't that bad, but marrying one brother after being jilted by the other? I don't know. These people are "touched" and a bit TSTL.

This book started off in a very emotional way. The h is jilted on her wedding day, minutes before walking down the aisle. She finds out that she was jilted from the H who is her fiancé's brother. The author does an amazing job of describing the wedding day. You feel every bit of the brides pain. You can comprehend her disorientation and displacement of her anger. Does the H take unfair advantage? I think not. He knew he was the right man for the job and acted accordingly. I will reread this book...more

I am NEVER deleting this from my collection.. LOVED it!! The attraction between these two is FIRE!

When her fiancé leaves her at the altar for another woman, Shaan accepts a proposal from the jilters older brother, discovering true love at last. But can she accept living in the shadow of the woman who has already claimed his heart? You won't regret reading this, Michelle Reid gives readers a dynamite read brimming with sensual scenes, an endearing plot and sensational characters.

I was loving this right up until the end. The author chose to make the hero have someone else do his explaining/groveling for him. You could tell all along that he was crazy about the heroine. I wanted to see him go all out and persuade her of his love. And then after that cop out, he is still mad at her and makes her basically crawl to him. So the last 10 pages sucked. We didn't actually get to experience the anguish he felt as he explained and the hope that he could persuade her and all that o...more

Jilted girl marries brother of ex-fiance.

Liked: how the hero just took charge of everything after she got jilted, cocooned heroine in his home and summarily married her himself. But then he had vested self-interest.

Liked: her quirkiness in wanting to purchase an inexpensive (because it's fake) Mickey Mouse watch for herself -- and rejecting his generous offer of a Rolex -- and a jade Buddha trinket for him. This brought back memories of my shopping in Hong Kong. I bought myself a cheongsam and...more

I really tried to continue reading but gave up at 40%. The h is devastated bc she was left at the altar. I understand this is a terrible thing to happen but by 40% I want something to new to happen. I keep reading about how upset the h is and it is too depressing.

3.5 stars

It was different than what I anticipated . Shaan was really clueless when it came to Rafe or Pier. I highly enjoyed the setting, Hong Kong in 1970's. Shaan's and Rafe's insecurities is what made this story enjoyable.

Rafe'yi en sonunda o kadar çok sevmiştim..avayip düşünceliydi:)

It was sweet how much the hero loved the heroine and how far he was willing to go to have her

And I also liked that she was half Middle Eastern. A nice change.

Hi, my name is Michelle Reid and I’ve been writing for Harlequin Mills & Boon for the last twenty years, and the crazy part about it is that I only realised it had been twenty years while updating this page!

So, hang on for a minute while I take this huge milestone in....

Twenty years with almost forty books published or in the pipeline ... I know it isn’t a great average when compared with some...more
