When Marissa married David Brown, things changed. He abused her, never physically but both mentally and emotionally. After her first miscarriage, he told he that he was happy because he did not want a baby. So when Marissa thought she was pregnant again, her mother was ill and she was given a chance to get away thank to Rafe, she took it.

Once back at home in New Zealand she got help for her horrible depression, her pregnancy and helped try to nurse her parents but sadly they both passed away. As

3.5 stars. This was a nice story for the real world, but I just didn't love it as romantic fiction. Not enough tension/angst for my taste. Not sure what it says about me that I don't enjoy stories where everyone is nice and reasonable with each other. :-) This one had at least some emotional tension wondering whether they loved each other, but I just didn't find it super exciting. Still, a decent read.
It was a good read,the story progressed really well,liked the way Rafe never gave up but fought all the walls that Marisa tried to put between them and healed her of her demons.Overall enjoyed the book very much.

Recommend it.

When Rafe Peveril meets Marisa Somerville again, she's a changed woman and nothing like the terror-stricken woman who survived a plane crash with him six years ago. The only thing is Marisa was Mary Brown then and denies ever meeting Rafe! As circumstances keep throwing them together, Rafe is determined to discover what happened and why Marisa refuses to acknowledge the plane crash they were in. This is an interesting story involving strong emotions and a back story that was terrible emotionally ...more

This is the first Mills&Boon that I have ever read. I wasn't sure what to expect, I thought it would be some shallow chick-lit, but for a short story it had some depth and interesting characters. So quite surprised.

another nice romance by this author, though she does not write with the depth that she did 30 years ago.
