Misleading blurb states H intended to sue h's step dad for fraud when in reality, H intended to press manslaughter charges because h's step dad got behind the wheel drunk and plowed into the car driven by H's brother and little nephew, killing them both. I hope the title of the book refers to the H because I would not, under any circumstances, call a morally bankrupt h who is trying to excuse her drunk driving, innocent bystander killing, step dad, anything remotely close to an angel. And she ha ...more

This older Helen Bianchin actually was not bad. Apparently she hadn't yet advanced to the writing stage of having most of the novel be descriptions of the heroine's showers, clothes, hair brushing, and spritzes of various perfumes. Still a little too much focus on trips to the zoo with children and other boring plot points, but overall I enjoyed the relationship and the tension of not knowing the hero's feelings. Good read.
Old school angst fest.

Terese has schlepped off to Manuel's abode to ask for forgiveness for her stepfather. While driving under the influence, his car malfunctioned and he ended up killing the H's brother and nephew.

Definitely one of those old "skool", "batshite" kind of HP. But I had a lot of fun with this one. HB doesn't fall into her formulaic trap and I actually found myself swooning over that bad boy Manuel.

Though, I could see the beginning elements of her trademark emerging: evil hero blackmailing young virginal woman, descriptions of beautiful clothing, heroine languishing in baths (she has some of the cleanest heroines), this time, it made sense and wasn't too over the top.

This was one of those Harlequins where everything would've gone smoother had the hero just let his love be known a lot sooner. I don't know, maybe ask the heroine out on a date and court her the traditional way?
The adverb abuse! Oh, the adverb abuse!

Neither Captain Morgan nor I were in the mood.

Great read. Not PC in the least and somewhat predictable . But a favorite author from my younger days.
