This is the story of a great, hulking blond brute of a hero and the beautiful and irrational harpy who loves him. The hero, Brent, is a douchebag and the heroine, Summer, is the female equivalent of one. A classic 80s "rapemance" filled with all cliches. So gloriously ridiculous.

I was entertained from the first page to the very last. There are some amazing scenes that had me chortling with glee. One in particular has a shrieking nursemaid running around through a burning nursery in a total panic

this started out great, had a "what the hell was this?" middle, and a "barely kept me interested" ending.
plus, what year was this? the language was so modern. also, the lovemaking was a little too prosy for me..just a huge paragraph of metaphors. hum.
all that said, it wasn't a bad book. something kept me going!

Read this for book club and it was terrible! Don't think I'll be making a habit of reading romance novels anytime soon! It was entertaining at the very least but I definitely wanted to slap the main characters. Felt like I was reading about a bunch of preteens doing very adult things.

This was a hard book to read. I was disappointed at the Captain Brent. I feel he was a rapist through out half the book. He just doesn't listen to anyone. But after I got thru half the book the plot got better. Did he change? It's all on your point of view. In my opinion this was not one of Leigh best books.
