Pip had her entire life planned out. She'll spent 18 months in the States, and then back to New Zealand. And then came Joe. First she falls in love with him, and then she becomes pregnant. She is torn appart, on one hand there is Joe, whom she loves, but he doesn't seem to love her back, and on the other hand, her family back in NZ, that represents security.

Pip had a happy childhood. Joe on the other hand did not. After his mother died when he was 4, his father left him with Joe's grandmother J
A generous 3.5 stars, which would have been well deserved if not for all the characters and backstory that tie it into a series written with 3 other authors. That was an intriguing idea and might have worked if not for the space and other constraints of a Harlequin. You really shouldnt need a 17-member family tree to follow what's going on in a category romance. I like Karina Bliss's writing a lot, but I'm not sure I'm sufficiently interested in the other books in the series to read them and get ...more

This was something of a disappointment after Bliss's other strong offerings, but it suffered from being part of a shared series. Which, when not done well, leaves you with lots of irrelevant-to-the-main-plot-line infodumpy backstory awkwardly inserted and hard to remember. The basic story of this romance wasn't bad--a Kiwi teacher on exchange in the US falls for the single father of one of her students. Their romance suddenly turns serious when due to a bad combination of relying on the Pill, se ...more
Not a book to be read while suffering from a massive head cold. So confusing. Who is Uncle Sam? And Isabelle? Sue’s married to whom? And Daniel’s the uncle? Who’s the father? Aye-aye-aye. Way too complicated.

This book is # 3 in a four-part series, each apparently written by a different author. I picked it up without realizing that at the library’s used book sale because I love Ms. Bliss’ later Superromances. Had I realized that, I might have tried to pick up the other ones to make better sense
Characters are quite sympathetic, and even though there are plenty of mistakes committed, nobody is demonized. There is one LOL moment (seriously, I had to put the book down, and kept giggling) involving the hero's daughter; she was one of the most convincing children I've ever seen in a romance. She didn't come across as too young or too precocious. The one thing I wasn't crazy about was how much time was spent on the hero's family trauma/drama, which is all connected to a series. This is the o ...more

Oh my goodness, make sure you have tissues handy when reading this book (if you are a crier like I am). I went through at least a half box of kleenex. This was a start to finish read, I did not put it down, I was up till 4 a.m. and by the end I could not breathe. This is book 3 of "The Diamond Legacy" series, each book is about a different character in the family and each is written by a different author. Sometimes that doesn't work but I love this series. I don't know how long this will go but ...more
Karina Bliss is such a strong author. I was hooked instantly and loved the characters. I thought that the resolution was pretty realistic - no easy fixes, just hard work then and in the future. I really sympathized for Joe. This is book three in a multi-author mini-series, which meant there were some infodumps of the previous books, but I was interested enough to consider reading the first two and the next.

I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was twelve but then I forgot and did a lot of other things instead. These included getting an arts degree in English and Political Studies at Auckland University (New Zealand), a postgraduate degree in periodical journalism at the University of London, travelling, having my heart broken a couple of times, meeting the right guy, building a house, having a baby - t ...more
