His determined pursuit and assault on her heart soon overcame her wavering resistance. She agreed to marry him, but some deep instinct of self-preservation kept her from revealing her love--and in time her decision w

Aand I'm done. I cannot respect a heroine who uses other men to make the hero jealous, kissing them ardently in front of the hero. I didn't give it a chance, I know, but what's the point if I can't bear the heroine.

Personally, if I were the heroine, my first reaction would be to slam the door on his sorry face when he comes a-knocking then play that Gloria Gaynor song “I Will Survive” for him, full blast, as he drives away… but then, I’d be the oddball HP heroine without a happy ending. So let me rethink this and rationalize why I would take him back:

First, because I have proven to him that I can walk out of the marriage and thrive well. To languish is just nonexistent in the vocabulary of any strong hero
This was a surprisingly boring book. I was not expecting that from such a seemingly interesting plot line. The hero being in love with the OW was not dealt with sufficiently. It was rather blase for being the main conflict in the story. Something vital was missing and it might have been the lack of depth in the story and the chemistry between the leads. I'm not sure, I can't put my finger on it, only to say I was bored out of my mind reading this book. Even the ending when they got back together ...more
The idea for the story is a good one, the synopsis grabbed my attention.
But I found the Hero to be really creepy. Maybe it's the dated dialogue (it was published 30 years ago...) and the heroine to be all talk no action, to the point of being embarrassingly spineless. And the seduction scenes were plain unsettling and debasing. Overall, it was a just outdated and dull.
I think if this book was rewritten to fit into the current Mills & Boon Modern / Harlequin Presents guidelines, I think it

This is such an overdue review.

I absolutely loved this book! It made my chest ache and made me cry real and genuine tears.


I absolutely loved it that it mentions the Greek gods and that the heroine was a history buff. I love it!!! I love the heroine even more for this, “She had wanted to be virgin on her wedding day, to wear her mother’s white wedding dress without feeling a fraud.”
We need more females like this heroine these days

Dude has a real weird sense of ethics. It's not okay in his opinion to commit adultery with his brother's wife but as soon as brother dies it's okay to cheat on his own wife. Are we are supposed the cheer because he didn't have Viagra and he couldn't complete the deed?

Kind of lame for some parts, but not lamely written really. The hero was what made it lame but that was just his outstanding personality. The guy was a douchebag.

I really liked this book. The h was different than most HP h she didn't wear her heart on her sleeve. She showed him she could live without him. And there was some ow/cheating issues, but sometimes matters of the heart are messy. I would keep this book.

Wtf? The man is a major sickfuck? Have no shame, h found out H kissing his sister in law goodbye right after their wedding day. h want nothing to do with H but he force himself, right after his brother dead and his wife ask him to go to go back to the OW he just jump on it. What a stupid dumb?? h take him back right after H thinks he and the OW not working.

This is by far the worst hero I've ever read. Absolutely awful. I like a cruel, manipulative hero, too. But this one was just unworthy. I'm okay with a hero loving another woman in the first half of a book, but that far to the end?? No ma'am, Ms. Donald. (I still love you though, because, well....The Golden Mask. <3)
Sep 19, 2016 rated it it was amazing
had difficulty getting past the idea that the H was in love with another woman. but then wondered what if the shoe was on the other foot? and in fact it usually is - its commonly the h who is in love with someone other than the H.
I still don't like the idea but for making me think about this role reversal alone I will give 5 stars. also it's one heck of a tear jerker.
Not as wallbangy as I was hoping, based on the reviews. :/
