No way would Eden agree to his demands

Jason Earle had no right to make demands, much less insist that she go to England to see David Morton, her grandfather. After all, the old man had ignored Eden for years.

True, Jason, his emissary, was breathtakingly handsome and a media magnate, as well. But that didn't give him power over Eden.

Yet she did go. The shock of her grandfat

Nothing new by way of the plot but I like/can forgive an assured alpha H who starts behaving in an uncharacteristically desperate way!

This book had some a-hole moments by the H, much annoying grating behavior from the h, om-ow galore with the consequent drama but the smitten-ness of the (ladykiller!) H overcame all that for me, although what he saw in her that he dint in his legion of others remains unanswered.

Heap load of sec characters (dead and alive) helped fill the narrative!

Got a CM marathon today. Got many 3/4 stars for them. That's weird.
I think I'm in the right mood for a bitchy-ridiculously-young-heroine and a lot of age differences today :))

But nothing beat the old HQs' heroes, doesn't it?

Eden Shaw is a 20-year-old virgin, which wouldn't have been so unusual in 1981. Her mother and father divorced when she was 3 and her mother remarried. She considers him her real dad.

She receives a visit from a man, Jason Earle, who knows her biological grandfather, David Morton. David has a heart condition and isn't expected to live long; he wants to see Eden before he dies.

Eden takes an immediate dislike to Jason Earle, who, in his 30s, is mature and sophisticated, whereas Eden is very young,

True, Jason, his emissary, was breathtakingly handsome and a media magnate, as well. But that didn't give him power over Eden.

Yet she did go. The shock of her grandfather's death marred her arrival and removed him from her life. It also bound her irrevocably to the devastating Jason.

Ok. Sure. This could happen...maybe. 16 year age difference, no problem. Former other woman now wanna be other woman to dad's widow? Sure thing.

The heroine was silly and immature almost childish and all the characters minus the hero were bipolar. But still it was very entertaining!

This book was a total disappointment in more ways than one. Silly story, silly writing style and silly everything actually! Nothing is there to please any apt reader. It seems Carole Motimer wrote while she was totally bored! NOT RECOMMENDED FOR SANE PEOPLE!

I do not approve of physical abuse and this is the third Mortimer book I've read where the heroine is struck for telling the truth. There is quite a bit of violence that is trivialised. It disgusts me.

Sweet little romance novel.
The kind I like when I want a quick, light read and a break from the more intense books that I usually read.

Lettura molto scorrevole e poco impegnativa: carino.
