Damien had caught up with her

He was as hard and arrogant as ever and just as devastating. "I intend to marry you," he said, "but you'll never get under my skin again. I won't make that mistake twice."

He had haunted Victoria's dreams since she was little more than a child. He had walked like a god through her world.

But Victoria had spent the last six years trying to put the

My mini PW marathon hit a snag. Reminded me too much of bickerfest Passionate enemy. He snaps. She snaps. He's luved her since she's 16 y/o, she's been ga-ga over him too, but her scheming, well-intentioned pimp grandpa triggered H/h's strained relationship 6 yrs ago when his big yapper told 18 y/o heroine he's been grooming her to be hero's future wife. In his ol fashioned mind, "no women can take care of my labor of luv". So hyphenating H/h's family names is his devious way to preserve his leg ...more
Luv you long time, besotted fool, stalkerific hero, evil ow, blackmail....all the things PW does so well! Yet somehow this one just didn't quite come together like her other work. Too much of a bicker fest for my taste. Also, grandpa didn't come off very well.

2.5 stars.
I have been reading some books by Patricia Wilson lately, and I can say I like this author very much ñ_ñ
These were the kind of stories I was waiting for, their heros are jealous, alfa-male, possessive, kind of protective, tender at times or cold, It's like a mix of all those elements. I haven't read a book by her with a manwhore hero until now, which is AMAZING!
It's so sad this author stopped writing books in 2004, she is too old now :(
About the book, I like the story, I like the main character
This is a ridiculously sweet story. Damien Hunt and Victoria Kendal are the children of family members who co-own a textile mill. Victoria is being raised by her old fashioned grandfather, who doesn’t think that women have any place in business. Damien is a decade older than Victoria, but is desperately attracted to her. She falls for him and agrees to marry him. When she informs her grandfather he can’t help but gloat that his plan to have her and Damien wed so that he can manage the mill has c ...more
Didn't like this one at all. The hero is brutish towards the heroine. He plays games, trying to get a rise out of the h by telling her that his secretary is his mistress and indicating that marriage would not change that. The secretary also confirms that she is his mistress. Later the H tells her it was not true. I just don't understand why so many HR writes seemed the think that telling a woman that another woman is the H's mistress is supposed to make them fall in love with him. To me that wou ...more

Never judge a book by its cover, this book is definitely a testament to that. The book cover shows a couple totally in love and happy- along with the bright blue sky. Instead the book has quite a lot of angst between and within the characters, angst that is quite positively a result of a huge and annoying misunderstanding.

Don't get me wrong, I liked the book, it was okay. I just don't fancy the guy of my dreams calling me names like 'witch' (even if it was suppose to be a compliment). Ive read
Smitten hero, likable heroine but the plot wasn't exciting.
3.5 stars. This was an ok read, but this author just doesn't do it for me. I don't know why I keep coming back, except that her basic plots are exactly what I usually like. I just don't really feel the emotional tension for some reason -- it's just way too obvious how the characters feel about each other.
awesome read!grabbed me from the 1st page! i love a besotted hero when i see one!damien was clearly out of his mind for victoria. she was awfully blind as it was obvious how much he loved her and had for a very long time. the stupid girl was so insecure and it was never explained what cud have made her like dat and what a vivid imagination she had! maybe it was simple immaturity or it cud be damien's attitude which was frankly deplorable! add to dat, he practically raped her near the end, he was ...more
I've liked Patricia Wilson's books before, but this one rubbed me the wrong way. Painful read. And the hero didn't grovel nearly half enough, not to mention his excruciating angst and jealousy and thinly veiled passion (ie. just plain violence) was a bit too profuse for even my Harlequin tolerance meter.

Entertaining old school Harlequin, but unoriginal story.

The H and h were likable, but I thought the hero could've gone after the heroine years sooner.
The world of the privileged and if I was born into one why not have her life. She has beauty, maybe some brains, money and some one tall dark and handsome men chasing her around. The book takes you to their glamorous lifestyle and the ties that bond.
I originally read this a couple years back and I did enjoy it although the hero ticked me off and frustrated me to no end. The heroine, well I felt horribly bad for her and was surprised how she changed over the novel.
