Lindsay is one of the few "Desire" authors I like, and this is a smoothly written story which is surprisingly low-key, despite the revenge and big misunderstanding themes. For example, when Anna tells Judd she's not sleeping with his father, he believes her immediately instead of drawing it out for another 100 pages.

I had a couple of issues with it though. I found it odd that Judd's father only questioned the paternity of his oldest child and never appeared to wonder about his younger daughter.

Anna was brought up by Charles Wilson in his house
Good book. Judd had good reason to be angry with his father, but his plans were a case of overkill. Thanks to his mother's actions, he was also very cynical and didn't trust Anna at all. As a matter of fact, he was sure that Anna was sleeping with his father, and intended to steal her away as part of his revenge.

I thought this book was good. The Wayward Son is a story about a son set upon getting revenge all based on lies that have been fed to him most of his life.

once again, a tortured hero with a terrible past who seeks revenge against the man who abandoned him to the not-so-tender mercies of his mother, and the woman who is a pawn caught between the man she has always depended on and the hero whom she falls for. actually, this time the hero has good reason to be angry, so that was a nice change!

Always an avid reader, I was introduced to the joy of reading romance at the age of 13 by an elderly neighbour. Each week I’d visit her and we'd sort through bags and boxes of books - she didn’t know it then but she’d unleashed a monster! A wannabe romance writer monster. At the age of 15 and totally inspired by the books I'd read, I tried my hand at my first romance novel (an abysmal attempt whic ...more
