It happened all the time

Jenneth told herself she wasn't the only woman in the world to have been let down by the man she loved and expected to marry.

She knew people went on to rebuild their lives and find lasting relationships. So why couldn't she put the past behind her? The fact that she still loved him was totally irrelevant now.

But Luke Rathby wasn't the sort of man wh

This romance aggravated me from here to Sunday, but was fun anyway, for some reason. Jenneth has never been able to love again since being cruelly dumped by her fiance, who married another woman. Now his wife is dead and he wants to get Jenneth back. By telling her the bizarre truth about his marriage and asking for forgiveness? Nah, by plotting and scheming to force himself on her against her will. Oh Penny Jordan, why can’t I quit you?

There are so many little annoyances in this. The narration
This was my fist Penny Jordan and I didn't like it. I cannot believe that an adult woman can be reduced that way. What a doormat... and him being a very a@@hole!!!!

He accused her to be promiscuous and she didn't say anything! And she did marry him, after all because SHE LOVED HIM!!

grrrrrrr!!!! Not recommended.

I have some expectations for this author but maybe she's not my cup of tea :(
Someone club me before I willingly enter into a relationship with another book like this. So. Much. Anguish. So much manipulation, by old friends, gossipy neighbours, darling little moppets, concerned twin brothers ... and of course the hero of the tale. Perhaps I just have to be in the mood for an engagement broken because the hero has made another gal pregnant*, a heroine who is still a virgin eight years later because the scumbag hero has left her frozen -- who knows? There are enough lies an ...more

Complete and utter rubbish, one of the worst books I've had the misfortune to read. It's hard to believe that a woman would write such tripe.

It’s 1989 and the year of my first job (something I disliked so much that once whilst complaining about it to a colleague, he gave me the following advice: “You could always take the baby option”.) It was something that really depressed me at the time; but this book embodies those attitudes from that time entirely.

Yes, there’s a distinct lack of feminism here as Jordan’s heroine (Jenneth) allows herself to be coerced, manipulated and bullied into a reunion with a man who broke their engagement (
The novel was great, right up until the end. At that point I could of happily shot the hero in the head for being such an idiot. Children are not responsible for their parents mistakes and the hero shouldn't have did what he did. It was stupid. It ruined some of the book.
