There was no escape!

Joaquin Del Castillo was as proud as his Latino heritage, and he instantly acted to right the wrong that he believed had been done to his elderly, loyal employee. He would lure the girl who owed the old man money to Guatemala, and here she would stay until she agreed to repay her debt!

Yesterday I reviewed the alien/human romance, Marco's Pride, today Don Joaquin’s Pride is under scrutiny. (Although pride, is not his sin. I guess Don Joaquin is sentenced to Anger Management Class doesn’t have the same ring to it.)

But first, the lying liar heroine, a doormat with an evil twin.

Evil twin was widowed at 17 (!) and bilked money out of her husband’s Guatemalan father by asking pretty please. To be fair, the father gave out of pride (theme alert) and managed to bankrupt himself in t

*Except for the last 15 pages or so.

I like this kind of story strong hero, mistaken identity and twins.
But what I didn't tolerate was the stupid and silly heroine. She unbelievably didn't fit the story.
There was another thing I didn't understand! I read this sentence a lot.
"Dark colour scoring his proud cheekbones."
What does it mean? Is the hero embarrassed, angry or what? (I asked Sarcastically).

This story is a bit illogical, too dramatic at the start. Trying to hold the heroine in the middle of nowhere until she sign the agreement? Come on, that sounds so absurd. But other than that I think it's an okay story. I love it when there are so much pain and hurt. Yeah, cruel me, har har har :D
