Would she ever find out the truth?

From the minute Prue met Josh Killane, she resented his manner—he acted just like a feudal overlord. Didn't he know what century this was?

Prue was determined to avoid him. After all, his mother was responsible for her parents' divorce and her own painful estrangement from her father.

She'd returned to England to discover for herself whether

I like most of Charlotte Lamb books even though sometimes she over do psychological analysis.
Food descriptions are great though. They make me hungry.

It was alright, but yes, could be creepy this day and age, November 15, 2011

My thoughts: I'll be honest, I got this book because of the previous review. I found her review kind of funny and I was curious. I was curious how the writer would "go there" as previous reviewer put it, LOL. And everything she said was true. It was a good Charlotte Lamb book, had the hero the way I like them also, a somewhat feisty heroine and pretty good moving plot. But yes, it was truly weird to read that hero kissed

Ahhhhh, what a sweet read!
The hero, was a little OTT but basically a nice guy. He really wanted to clear the air and show her how he felt for her. That ex-fiancé of her and his sister Lyndsey were such selfish jerks that it was easy to see them going off together.
Also, I was so relieved that she had NOT slept with her ex-fiancé.
He was an ass.
Although, I would have liked an epilogue for this one that included his mother and her father. He never admitted to her that he did have feeling for her

God. What an unlikeable heroine. Someone should have told her to 'shut the fuck up'. Both her and Josh's sister seem to be cut from the same petulant cloth. She didn't have any redeeming qualities. Every word and accusation that came out of her mouth caused an excruciating throb in my ear. Like nails cutting against glass. David made his getaway but I feel sorry for Josh. Authors call it being 'feisty' but I would call the woman a harpy. I would have given it more stars because the Hero, second ...more

2.5 actually

I was wrong - having the protagonists closer to the same age does NOT improve the book. Or maybe it's just the era it was written in. On the bright side, I did not buy this book. Rather, it was one of the many I brought home when cleaning out a deceased relative's house.

Considering the relative's age, I'd imagine the H/h wore on her nerves too.

It's hard really to like a book when... the h is engaged to someone else. The someone else conveniently elopes with the H's kid sister, thus s

Very ordinary read.

She hates him till the last page, but he doesn't mind. He simply goes on making passes and she accepts. But Lo! and behold, she discovers 2 pages before curtains that all that hate is actually love! Really ?!?!?!?

Her fiance runs off with his sister, how convenient.

Disappointing read, grated on my nerves actually. Wonder why I still give it 2 stars, probably 1 will do...

It was worth 3.5 stars. I had mixed feelings regarding hero's attraction towards heroine. He had first kissed her when she was just 13 and he was in his 20s. Usually an Ewee.. moment for me. But because it was written so plainly in the end and so matter of fact that my usual feeling didn't have much to go on for. He came out OK.
