First time I've ever given up on a book by Elizabeth Lowell--but then there's a first time for everything.
I thought I was caught in a time warp and was reading one of her old Silhouette Desires. Seriously, the mental lusting in the first scene between the hero and heroine was so over the top--Sheesh! I figured out who the bad guy was in the first 50 pages. I didn't like Lina very much, I didn't like Hunter very much, her dysfunctional family was SO familiar, and so on...About page 60 I gave up and jumped ahead to the last twenty pages--which confirmed my suspicions that the title was literal.

Blergh! I am so glad I borrowed this from the library.

And it breaks my heart to write this review, because I have been a Constant Reader of Ms Lowell's books for (mumble, mumble) years. But she lost me with this one.
Bye, bye, it's been fun.
