This novel was really done well too. I didn't expect some of the parts in the novel, while there were others I simply read into and could easily find out what was happening next. Never the less, it was GREAT!

I liked this one a lot. I can't believe it was written in 1984 there was so much pre-marital sex and they enjoyed it! Kate is a successful business woman engaged to her college sweetheart, but he dumps her to marry a rich widow. To try and forget, Kate goes out of town where she meets a stranger (our Hero, Jared) She is immediately attracted to him and they spend 2 passionate nights together. However, since for her it is just a fling, she goes back to London and 3 months later, decides to marry ...more

This was more or less a fair read until the male protagonist forced himself on the heroine. That scene ruined everything. Plus he was also a big hypocrite: he concealed his identity from her until the end yet patronised her for getting engaged to a man she didn't love.
I just cant'accept rape in a romantic novel.

One of the rare most recommended reads ever. So happy that I came across it and read it. Jared and Kate are certainly two of the most distinguished heroes in a harlequin. So strong and welling to commit to their love once they find it. So Beautiful and passionate. Love it! A novel for keeps!

Have I mentioned that I love books whose heroine's name is Kate or Kathrine? Well, I should probably tell it now! Although overall the book was comme ci comme ca, I have it in my favourite book's list because of Kate's name. As a romance book, I could say that it was nice.
