I really enjoyed reading this one!!the hero was really bestowed with the heroine,and heroine was feisty yet adorable!the hero was your typical alpha but fortunalety not a jerk!loved to see the heroine stand up for herself and she didn't let the hero run over was so much fun reading how jealous and possessive the hero was,he was abosolutely dreamy and so romantic!plus their little son jake was an added bonus!!I adored the little boy!it was heartbreaking to read about the circumstances in w ...more
At first, there were a few things that set me off and raised my 'ick' factor.

1. Tabby's age when she first starts 'dating' Christien and how fast she drops her panties for him

2. The excessive misunderstandings and interference from more people than I could keep up with

3. Christien's deceptions when he first reunites with Tabby (but he does redeem himself)

4. Tabby's delay in telling Christien about their son, and not getting legal council or having the sense to realize taking the child to France

An amazing read.

Unable to resist the strong sexual pull between them Christien and Tabby embarked on a 6 week whirlwind affair four years ago in France. When Tabby's lie about her young age comes to light, Christien informs her he needs to think. Tabby is left afraid then tragedy strikes....leaving 5 families in mourning and Tabby feeling left out in the cold.

Trying to be brave and mature Tabby tries to let him know about the baby believing that Christien really loves her. But unable to comprehe

The hero and heroine had a brief but passionate love affair when the heroine was only seventeen. After her father drove drunk and killed the heroes father, there relationship broke up. The hero never knew at seventeen the hero had his son, went to college and worked numerous jobs to provide for his son. Four years have passed and now they have met again and the hero is about to find out the truth behind everything.
A fun read!

I love Tabby and Christien and the way they interact with each other. Tabby is a straight talker who does not hesitate to call Christien on his bulls*it. While it seems like his fascination with Tabby is purely physical, his need to be with her and to make her happy suggests otherwise.

This book had all the things I adore in a HP - it's a secret baby book, the H and h are somewhat mature enough to work through their problems with too much bloodshed, the "other woman" is deviously desp

I love this book. I can reread it lots of times. They were crazy in love for each other when Tabby was 17 (she hid that fact from him) and they had a summer romance. Christien was older, rich and super good looking. They loved deeply, but jealousy and family tragedy seperated them . Help that there was evil /friend of the guy that truly made it happen.
Tabby was left pregnant , alone but she got on with her life. She had the baby and was living her life. When Christien aunt includes her in her w

A very good, classic Lynne Graham story. I enjoyed the way the hero couldn't stay away, and the couple's angsty history. Very enjoyable read.

One of the first Graham books that really didn't give me much. Tabby had a fling with Christien when she was seventeen and ended up pregnant. Christien, who is very arrogant and wealthy, rejected her when he thought she was unfaithful and then when her father killed his father while drunk driving, cut her out of his life entirely. His great aunt's will leaves a cottage on Christien's family's estate to Tabby, bringing them back together.

I really didn't like it. The way I've been reading these bo

Can't put my finger on why I thought this story was just an okay read. It wasn't bad, but normally I enjoy this author much more. Perhaps it was me and I've just read too many of this style of book lately and need to take a break and read something fresh. I think I'll read this one again in a few months and see if I either like it more or can work out more specifically why it didn't work as well for me.
Nov 27, 2013 Marie rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
I love Lynne Graham for four reasons when she is at her best: her steamy sex scenes, her alpha Latin lover males who are bad boys but never unkind, her wit, and her intelligent dialogue: this book missed the mark big time for me. The alpha male, Christien, was just too awful to Tabby. I just found him yucky, and I wanted Tabby to run away from him as fast and as far as possible.
Christien is an asshat and an idiot and a douchebag. I would pay money to punch him in the face several times. And Tabby is an idiot. A mega idiot, because you have to have rocks for brains to see anything redeeming in Christien.
3.5 stars
The harlequin comic version did great justice to this, i just had to read the original. Still quite emotive, it was a pleasant read. of course once the Hero found out, the things he did were handled typical alpha male but all issues were settled realistically. good read!

I didn't like him calling her "hussy" or "Slut" repetitively...unusual for a LG book...
Overall, a definite keeper like her other books:)

I did not care for how the book kept skipping back and forth between past and present.

It was just an okay read for me. Not bad, but not good either. Just a perfect read for a very lazy afternoon!
