It's hard to believe I once devoured the old-school Harlequins. I'm now embarrassed by the florid prose!

This one has a fairly simple premise. Girl's fiancé has embezzled money from a client. Said client wants to prosecute, but has fallen in lust/love with said girl. He agrees to not prosecute if girl will marry him. Embezzling fiancé is more than happy to give her up to escape notoriety and prison. Girl marries him but is determined to hate her husband. He's determined to seduce her but won't fo

(repost of my earlier entry)I actually read this book during my HS days, one of the "older" books in my mom's stash, haha. I appreciated the story, reading again after so many years. Although the condition upon which the h agreed to marry the H was a bit preposterous (like really, why would you have a spineless fiancee's #$%* ?), rest of the story was ok for me. The tension between H and h was exciting. The H intended to "teach the spoiled h a lesson" by bringing her in the primtive ancestral co ...more

I have read this story once before many many years, and in my own language, so reading it in it's original language was like reading it afresh.
The story was soooo good I just kept turning the pages and in the end I was teary eyes, all in all I love this author she really gives a new definition to the word romance….

Loved it <3 It's pretty well-written, and the characters are pretty well fleshed out.
At first it was really slow and basically interesting but than i really loved it, especially Claire .. i saw myself in her ^_^
it's great book i love Margaret Rome, her writings're so pretty & i love the old Harlequin novels & this novel's a pretty standard for those times (1980).

This one i am on a fence about. I thought It might be a four star. But i could not stand the Heroine she was to not a nice person. The Hero grew on me although he spoke as if he was some literary poet just too much sometime. I did like the story plot.
