If you like revenge stories where the heroine has to physically suffer, you'll love this one.

Corporate millionaire hero from the wrong side of the tracks marries philosophy professor heroine as a condition of buying her parent's ranch. Seems she flirted with him in high school and her father caught them kissing in a barn and warned hero off. Heroine's father then fired hero's alcoholic father, making him go on a bender. Hero's life went from bad to worse until he left town and became a millionai
I'm not really sure that these Harlequin/Silhouette books are my cuppa. I've read a few oldies and didn't like them and this is the first newer one and it really didn't do it for me either. I gave it a shot because it had a few elements that I like, such as the "forced marriage", "revenge" and a jerky hero but I ended up just skimming the book.

Years ago Victoria (h) was a young teenager living on her families ranch, a very secessfull ranch and has had a crush on one of the ranch hands sons, Adam

A typical romance novel - Man holds grudge against woman and her family for years and finally has chance to get his revenge - except she's no longer an obnoxious snob, her family is no longer wealthy and the physical attraction between them has not left. This book is readable, predictable but a fun fantasy of the relationship we would like to work out in our own lives.

I'm not sure what romance novel you all have been reading but this "forced marriage" concept is awful. The main characters are unlikeable. The "hero" is an a**h*** and the "heroine" is weak. Borderline abusive storyline and ultimately unreadable.

Victoria Pade is one of my preferred Harlequin authors. This uses a lot of romance cliches (forced marriage, revenge theme), but I enjoyed it anyway, mostly because the hero doesn't act like a jerk for too long.
clearing my shelves of books I'll never read. ;-p
