Mistress...and mother!

Trish's body still tingled at the memory of her time with Adam four years ago, but he'd seemed more interested in dating glamorous women than settling down! Trish had vowed to forget him--until, gorgeously irresistible as ever, he appeared on her doorstep insisting it was Trish he really wanted....

Surely this time Adam was here to stay? The passion be

I was amused and charmed during the first third of the book, a steady 3* seemed apparent. It rapidly went downhill after that, with silly (imagined) misunderstandings and the h who at first seemed strong and level headed was reduced to a complete ninny. The lack of declaration from the H and his reasons just made this whole plot seem very contrived.

O herói luta contra o amor e está prestes a se casar com outra... é meio estúpido! A heroína acha que não é boa o bastante. Diferença grande de idade entre os dois. Gostei.

Well this had a bunch of potential that it didn't really live up to. It also had one of the weirder setups of any HP that I've read. Let's see he got married at 18 to a 30 year old and then they immediately had a son to go along with the daughter his wife already had. And then when he was 34 or so, a young girl (16 years old) comes to board with them while his wife is dying of cancer and everybody loves her cuz she's just so lovable. This includes the hero who makes a pass at her just after the ...more

Read this in 2010.

I thought the novel was pretty emotional. I certainly had tears in my eyes at more than one point. I couldn't get over how stupid the hero was, he was going to marry another woman while making love with another. If that wasn't a clue to break up with your fiance, I don't know what was.

I'm just happy I finally finished this, okay?

There's a reason why I don't read harlequin books. The "I can't stop my body from betraying me because of this all-consuming lust for you" bull. I... I can't do it right now. I don't have the mindset for it and it just grates me. So yeah, taking a break from these books.

Plus Adam annoyed me in the first part of the book. He had a fiancee and he still went to Trish's island to hit on her just so she could "thoroughly" reject him and push his mind from

Was a good read....very emotional tear-jerker. The hero has encased his emotions in steel but the heroine keeps poking holes in his walls....& he is slowly starting to realize his emotions but he keeps fighting for 4 years & becomes engaged to another woman. Once they meet again at his engagement party all their feelings come to a head & he follows her to her island home. Still keeping part of himself hidden away the heroine doesn't believe he loves her & misunderstandings follow ...more

Here is a story that you love to hate. In the opening paragraph Adam is running late for his own engagement party. And thinking of another woman. Later he and Trish get together on her island. When she is about to tell him of her preganancy she finds out via telegram that he is still engaged. Now what is she to do. She keeps quiet. But...if you want to know more read this book. I will be rereading it again. But when I am not so emotionally upset with the plot line. Need to step away for a bit. L ...more

What can I say, I needed a book that started with E to finish October. Had Trish (the heroine) been a real person, someone would have bludgeoned her to death long ago. Yeah, I didn't buy any of it. The island sounded nice though.
Booklover
a nice read,heroin is head strong n fights her feelings every turn of the book and hero je also fights his feelings(the age gap between them is more younger hero-older hero)absolutely liked the twist-turns n story keeps holding you
