Carole Mortimer is one of those hit and miss authors for me; her hits are really good though, so I often take reading risks with her. But this book was just a wreck. For one thing the heroine Stazy is so emotionally and, more unconvincingly, sexually stunted, it's hard to believe what the hero, Jaxon actually sees in her. She supposedly hates him for being a vapid Hollywood celebrity, and for trying to tarnish her grandmother's name in his screenplay about her grandmother; but god no, her body can't get enough of him; oh but no, her mind doth protest; oh but the slightest touch or glance from him gets her senses going again. The forced conflict between them just doesn't work. I suppose that's the purest form of love—I just couldn't see it. I feel sorry for the poor guy. He really is a darling of a hero stuck in love with an insipid heroine.
