The Angry Man by Joyce Dingwell (1979)

The Angry Man.

How could I not?

First, a detour to cover art. I am working with an artist on the cover of book two of the RiverLust series, Simon’s Story. It’s called Swan Bay.

The H is secretive, high-handed, and above all, angry. He's also crazy jealous, although the h doesn't recognize it. The OW is vulnerable and must be protected by the H, who has enlisted the h's care to help keep this hothouse flower far from life's cruelties, and other men. I realize I hate these emotional invalid OW's -- they tend to take up so much of the book. Not enough tenderness or affection from the H to make it believable.

Didn't really like this one. The majority of Joyce Dingwell's books are clean and I enjoy reading them since they are usually set in Australia or New Zealand but this one I couldn't finish. Once the fellow started fondling the female lead and then started unbuttoning her blouse I had had enough.
