I really enjoyed this book. It was obvious from the start that the hero was bat-shit crazy for the heroine only she couldn't see it, having been sheltered by her father. After his death she loses everything and the hero comes to the rescue and wants to marry her. She doesn't want to marry him. She becomes independent and though I did fault her blindness sometimes, the hero was awesome. Oh, also the hero was celibate ever since he met her 2 years ago.

“Oh, yes, there have been women, but not after

Intangible Dream is the kind of Harlequin Presents that old-school fans will enjoy. Despite the lack of descriptive love scenes, there is plenty of passion in this novel. And enough true love to make a diehard romantic sigh when they finish the last sentence.

It has a strong, fascinating hero who's pretty much obsessed with the heroine. Readers who love heroes who are stone cold in love with the heroine will find this book very romantic and James irresistible. Wilson maintains the tension of the

Anotha good 1. Insta unrequited luv, damaged hero, damsel perpetually in distress just like in Dangerous Obsession, this time the hero gotta take care of her after falling @ muddy work site, acute appendicitis, drowning. He saw the sheltered, good-4-nuffink heroine @ airport when she was picking up daddy 2 yrs ago, followed 'em home, planned an elaborate scheme to be her daddy's partner, spend Xmasses @ her home, all to conquer her. After daddy expires, uneducated & jobless heroine makes a d

I kind of feel like nothing happened in this book, like there was so much repetitive conversation that I barely noticed the plot or setting. And sheesh, I know this is an older book, but could the heroine be any weaker? She was fainting and falling and drowning every other page. And I love how the book ends with their mutual hilarity over the idea that she could possibly continue working once they got married. Despite all that it was an angsty read and I always like a hero who is obviously crazy ...more

Enjoyable, but somehow not one of my favorites by this author because:

1) a lot of internal dialogue by the heroine that got on my nerves

2) heroine was too weak for my fancy always fainting, drowning, ruptured appendix, you name it..

3) hero was stalkerfic to the point that it gave me the creeps (I love a "me love you long time" theme, but this one was a bit too much)

4) heroine acted like she was 10, not 24

5) sex scene was thrown in at the end, more as a prerequisite checkmark for the author, rath

4 stars even though the heroine got on my nerves. Poor hero was so smitten and so devoted to her I felt sorry for him. She was so mean to him, a real bitch. Still I couldn't put this book down so 4 stars for this and for the dreamy hero!

i saw this mentioned on an amazon thread talking about celibate heroes, and it piqued my interest! the hero was a typically arrogant alpha male and his heroine was a very sheltered woman whose father had left her insolvent. she goes to work for him and grows as a person, finally becoming secure in her own worth
April Brookshire
Poor hero, the heroine made it so hard for him to win her over.

Not original but entertaining.

One thing about Patricia Wilson is that in theses older Harlequins she wrote good dialogue.

This book was so stupid it's unbelievable.
In 189 pages, the main man must have said three pages tops in total of nice things to her yet she fell for him anyway.
The girl herself was an annoying, whiny and pathetic little brat who acted more 2 than 24 most of the time.

The most irritating thing is that had he not have come out and said straight away that he intended to marry her, she would have had no reason to refuse him for so long because he could have just wooed her.
That would have made for an

A fun old HP. I love a hero who is crazy about the oblivious heroine and plots for years to get her in his grasp.
