About 80% of this book features one of my biggest HP pet peeves -- the hero who thinks the heroine should be wholly satisfied with being a mother and have no desire to enrich her life in any other way.

In order to rekindle their past relationship, the hero contracts out the heroine from her law firm under the guise that he needs a property lawyer to help him start a chain of wine bars. He insists that her boss had highly recommended her because she's a good lawyer and that she shouldn't worry that her coworkers will think her selection for the job was based on their sexual attraction. So, it seems that the hero did think she was a smart, capable professional.

However, just a few days later, when he finds out she had his child ten months, he wants her to completely give up her career so she can focus on only being a mother. He can't imagine why she would want to work when he will provide her with a castle and couture clothing and jewelry even though she explains multiple times that she enjoys her work. Argh!

Luckily, the hero does eventually wise up and join the 21st century, which is what saved the book for me. Otherwise, it's the usual HP featuring a secret baby and marriage of convenience.

Lemon LOL. Maybe the hero couldn't believe the h liked her job because she was a lawyer.

The resolution for it was actually pretty satisfactory. (view spoiler) It just took a while to get there, so the rest of the book had me seething.
