Over the top crazy: hero with madonna-whore complex ruthlessly hunts down quivering virgin with tendency to spit like a kitten. Comes close to being a fabulous wallbanger, but even those don't need quite such plentiful helpings of "whore" and bitch." (Or at least require some sort of satisfying resolution to make up for things like this elegant proposal: "Now what's your answer? Will you marry me and be my whore, or shall I let your father go down the drain?")

Now this book had everything I like in Harlequin Presents: cruel but fabulously wealthy hero, who is obsessed / besotted with the heroine since he laid his eyes on her. We have a forced / arranged marriage. We also have a heroine who is extremely annoying and after you finish reading the book, you fail to understand why the hero was smitten with her. The heroine is not unlike the other HP heroines. She's of course TSTL. She professes to hate the hero and is supposedly in love with another man ye ...more

Barely 2 stars for me. I like my heroine to have a little more between the ears.

Great old school Harlequin story. Lucy's father is a gambler and soon becomes bankrupt. When Randal, owner of the casino, meets Lucy he is smitten with her from day one. He promises to help them financially if only she accepts his marriage proposal. But Lucy is engaged to Edward, her childhood sweetheart and she can never love another man. Or so she thinks....

Loved both characters. Lucy is very feisty and strong and Randal is almost obsessed with her. He protects her, saves her father from ruin,
Lol. The H was a raging, horribly offensive dbag, but I couldn't take him too seriously because everyone else was so outrageously stupid. Especially the h. Randal may be a chronic ass, but he was the only one able to do the most basic reasoning.

Good Lord! All the stupid was actually funny. I kept imagining them in an old melodramatic black & white movie. This was supposed to be the 90s, but appareyntly no one told the h. This was so bad it was kinda good.

Side note: The h needs to see a cardi

It was okay. It would have been better if the author didn't rush creating the story into a book. I think the plot would have been more interesting if it was more elaborate and not too obvious (I think the other readers would have known from the start who the bad guy is... right?). This could have been a more than just a quick read. It have the potential to be a smart novel. Any ways, character wise, I love Randal's persuasive character (only because this is fiction, and we readers know that this ...more

Old Skool HP fun, although hero called heroine a bitch a few too many times.
