The heroine Chloe has been time working away and is now ready to go back home and marry her long term boyfriend. However when she gets back home, nothing seems to go as planned; her boyfriend is distant and preoccupied, her Aunt and Uncle are planning to move away, and the hero Darius is back, which makes Chloe feel awkward. Darius was once the village bad boy, whom left in disgrace seven years ago after apparently being found in bed with his brother's wife. That had also been the same night tha ...more

I am such a Sara Craven fangirl and this book didn't disappoint me. It was a slow build to a sexual love. There are 2 evil other women in this one as well as a decoy safe fiance that the heroine purports to love. It is angsty and it is Old Skool. <3

This is a great book. This Harlequin romance actually has, if not a new plot, a maximized one in the way of character development and interest. The two drawbacks of this book are as follows. First, Ian, a main character in this book, should have been more fully drawn. Secondly, I wish this book would have been longer.
I liked the story. However, it had the potential to be better. The couple have chemistry, unfortunately, spend little time together. Chloe was as naive. It was obvious what was happening with the fiance. I liked most of her uncle. I found he more affectionate.
If had more romance would be one of my favorites.

I really liked it. I am a big fan of most of Sara Craven's books. This one was a pleasant refreshing change from the same old formula in most harlequin books. I like the h & H and their chemistry was convincing. Definitely planned to re-read! Thank goodness no questionable forced seductions!

Hilarious. From the description, I did think it was going to be more historical instead of "present day," but whatever.

The sex scenes were quite steamy, but not that well written. And the virgin seduced by rich younger son is pretty over-used, but it's not like I picked this up for the literary quality.

I have never been so bored in my life. I skimmed through at least half of it. The interaction between the hero and heroine is dull and isn't the central part of the story. Not a good read. And certainly not one of her best.

loved this novel.. As a matter of fact this is what a real Romance novel is suppose to be about. Everything was imaginable from the characters to the setting , conflict, and plot. Praise to Sara Craven.

The heroine is a nitwit. She's in total denial of her feelings, tries to ride a dangerous horse she's been warned to stay away from, and worst of all, she assumes. Nitwit.
not too shabby :) Kind of just wish they would have got together sooner than just at the end of the book.
