I hope it's not a pattern of EG books. This is the 2nd EG I came across where 1) Hero gets the initial impression that heroine is still a teen & 2) Heroine acts child-like (e.g., stamps her li'l foot).

H/h meet in Caribbean where he gets injured near her plantation & heroine nurses him back to health (she's a nurse). Hero is a gazillionaire, heroine is @ the end of her rope, desperate for her inheritance to save her farm. I d

‘Love is in the Cards’ might have been a decent book, had it been turned into a 300+ page novel, rather than a throwaway Mills & Boon read.

Hated it. Only part i liked was the Tarot card reading that part interesting. Really disliked the

After the first pages I was so bored with it I couldn't even read the rest, I've skimmed the pages, got bored again, and didn't even read the final rows. I think I finished this book in 10 minutes ;) what a waiste of my time.

Meh. Not keeping my attention. Not worth it. I'm tired of weak women who are portrayed as strong, but fall to pieces as soon as the man comes along.
