A sweet simple story of two people who fell in love as teenagers but who were parted by her rich family. He thinks he hates her but she has always known she loves him. This was a fairly simple story that only worked because they had the past history. Most of the book took place in one day. Only about a 5th of the book took place 2 weeks later. There was one almost love scene and some passionate kisses. The heroine was sweet and as soon as the hero was back in her presence he fell right back in l ...more

"This is a great summer fun read! I don’t think anyone but Liz Fielding could make this theme work or work so well. The story is part ‘baby on the doorstep’ (desktop), part ‘poor boy to rich boy’, part Jane Austen style entailment caused ‘marriage of convenience’ and for good measure there’s a touch of ‘thriller- adventure’ to give the story a dash of life and death drama. I guess you can do this after you’ve written over sixty books!" from a review posted by an member, read more ...more

May Coleridge, the heroine, is in serious trouble. Her very rich grandfather has died and in the will there is a clause that states that if she is still single by the time she turns 30 she won’t get anything. This includes the huge manor and everything inside it. Since her 30th birthday is in less than a month and she is very much single, you can see why she is a bit worried. Parallel to this, Adam Wavell, the hero, is also in a pickle, but a very di
This premise for a story is something I really like. The conflict of 'pretending' when deep down they both still love one another, (or fall in love with one another) but because they think the other is 'pretending' they won't open up. I can't read enough of these.

As usual, Liz Fielding really does create great tension and is sensual in her writing. It's tender, so we don't get to see anything behind the bedroom door, but leading up to it is so much fun! Intense, sexy. She writes down to earth c
The hero and heroine have a childhood past. She's from the "Big House" and he's from the bad side of town, but they went to the same school in the same small English town, and were close friends. Until one day they weren't. And now he needs help with a baby his sister's left him with, and his sister's sent him to the heroine to get it while she tries to sort out the mess her own life has become. It sounds rather involved, but most of these other things take place on the periphery. It's a "boy ma ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I would read it again. This is more of a cuddle-up, cozy kinda book. I liked the characters and the situations. I liked the ending, most definitely, great HEA. All the 'little things' that happened to bring the two together were great. I liked the little touches from the past and the humor and warmth. Great job to the author. This is one of the ones I would keep for comfy reading. Enjoy

This was a great story of a love lost that is found again. A baby and archaic will help May and Adam realize that they always had one another but they just didn't know it!
