Loved the Book.. John is a sweet hero without any demons, nor does he have any sordid past, nor is he a rake.. only thing that was missing in his life was that his mother did not love him, that does affect him as he believes that he love does not exist and he cannot fall in love but that changes when he meets Melissa and what a adorable heroine she is, she has been a prisoner in her own room for 18 years by a father who is mentally ill, who thinks that if she goes out into the outside world she will catch some illness and die or her biological father will take her way from him.. She becomes free once her father dies and goes to live with her step uncle and step cousin.. she initially has problems of adjusting to people but later John helps her through her insecurities and she becomes comfortable with him and falls in love with him, same happens with John.. Then there is a twist in plot where the family does not want the Ton to know that Melissa is an illegitimate child and so the lovers are torn apart,Melissa has to marry someone else other than John who happens to be his friend Charles.. Both John and Melissa hide their feelings for each other and try to be happy that Melissa is marrying charles.. at the end John realizes he cant live without Melissa and confesses his love for her and asks her to break her engagement and finally they get the approval from Johns dad and all is well.. There is no Epilogue in this book, which was necessary as the ending is a bit abrupt that is the only negative in this book.. Otherwise the book is amazing and a clean romance...
