"Your husband loves another woman."

The note was signed "A Friend," but no friend would ever do that to another woman. Could it be true? Was Kate Lassiter's marriage falling apart? She still loved her husband, Ryan, still thrilled at his touch, but how long was it since they'd last made love?

On the surface they had it all: successful careers, a lovely home and the perfect m

Career-driven heroine is shaken upon receiving anonymous message informing her that her writer husband is seeing another woman.

It makes her reassess their recently distant relationship, especially in light of Hero excluding her from his business trip. Will inviting herself to join him save their marriage?

The premise & how the supposed infidelity was flushed out in this Craven book kept my interest. My emotions were engaged. There were times when I didn't like the heroine because of her self

He couldn't think of a better way to get his wife's attention? Seriously? They're both TSTL!

Ok, so the whole book is centred around the crumbling relationship between the Hero and the heroine. To add fuel to the fire, she receives a letter saying he's in love with another woman. What ensues, is a dull read filled with suspicion and never-voiced accusation.
I don't want to give out any spoilers but, let's suffice to say that being a Harlequin, it obviously doesn't end badly. However, what it does end with, is a really really lame explanation about the "letter mystery" and his supposed "a

Well, the emotion & angst was good, and I did want the hero & heroine to get together, but I ended up being royally pissed off at the hero at the end. And I know the book is a little outdated and that in most HPs the heroines choose to forego whatever careers they have, but I also didn't really appreciate how the heroine was portrayed as a bad wife because she had a career.

Anyway, it was a reasonably compelling read, but not altogether satisfying for me because I was pissed at the hero a

The heroine Kate is devastated when she receives an anonymous letter saying her husband loves another woman. She begins to realise that their marriage has not been good for sometime, however she never suspected that Ryan, the hero, may be having an affair and doesn't want to lose him. Deciding not to tell Ryan about the letter, hoping that it is just from a spiteful and jealous woman, Kate tries to get closer to him but when he seems pre occupied all the time and not interested in her she begins ...more

I was slightly annoyed. There was angst and everything seemed to be going okay and then we come to the ending where the husband/hero confesses that he wrote the note to the wife/heroine which said he was having an affair. Well my mouth pretty much dropped open and I began to grumble. He could of lost everything, good thing we get a happy ending.

silly plot. silly characters. somehow, it worked. although she didn't deserve him. just because you believed your husband cheating didn't mean it's okay for you to try it.
another weird thing is the OM. (view spoiler) i just like DUH, you tried to seduce a married woman, buddy, what did you expect and why even tried in the first place? weirdo (and marriage wrecker, you and

I rarely review these Harlequin HPs, because they are all so open to personal taste. This one really bothered me though. Sometimes I am impressed by how much story authors can pack into these books, sometime I just read them for the trainwrecky qualities, but this one actually made me angry. The whole idea of the husband creating this horrible emotional quagmire for his wife, all because he didn't have the guts to address their marital issues directly, just seemed so infantile.

The whole book se

Shelves: romance
The whole point with the letter and various red herrings was nicely done and quite amusing, but at the end I was filled with more confusion than satisfaction. It all seemed a little too forced, too neat, and kind of... illogical.

Pertinent questions:(view spoiler)

Kate should of taken the opportunity presented by the letter (who does that?!) and left this idiot and his judgemental family.
