Bow down, Bitches. For in the parallel universe that we call "Harlequin", Charlotte Lamb is the Head Bitch In Charge.

That is all. *drops mike*
An interesting old skool romance; sexist as hell, mind you, but interesting. Lisa ran away from her husband Steve after he became convinced she’d been unfaithful to him; now he’s found her and is determined to get her back. But Lisa is afraid he will never truly believe or forgive her, and will continue to punish her forever.

Lamb seems to be trying to add depth to her typical old skool crazy here, perhaps even analyze it a bit. There’s a lot of attention paid to secondary characters and a lot of

well, i'm a big sucker of charlotte lamb's old books and she did not disappoint me wid this one as well. the hero was unbearably jealous and possessive! he was so completely besotted dat it took my breath away ! good one, it lost 1 star as i was bored wid stories on lisa's colleagues at work. really who cares abt them lol !?
Current Harlequin and romance writers could take lessons on from Charlotte Lamb on how to build up tension and scare the hell out your readers. There were more than a couple of times reading this book when it read more like a suspense/horror genre than a romance.

She was about to draw the curtain again when she heard the slow click of feet on the pavement above the area.
She drew back, holding the curtain but keeping out of sight. The iron gate at the top of their steps creaked in its familiar w

I think this is the first Charlotte Lamb book I've read where the hero didn't have grey eyes (this hero's were blue).

This book was published around the time I was born, so it's way out of date in PC aspects. Not that I ever hold that against a book, even modern ones, since I'm just not feminist enough.

This was also my first Charlotte Lamb book where she tried to give deeper meaning to her characters and the plot by analyzing things that should never be analyzed in a Harlequin. Not the right aren

It was ok, some parts were boring!
For the first time in harlyland I liked the secondary caracters more than the hero or the heroine specially Evan her boss who adred his wife and shoew care and consern for her more than the H to the h 😂
The writing was excellent as usual for Charlotte Lambe but I think the internal dialogues were too long
Another story of a woman who flees her brutal husband, only she can't stay hidden from him forever. Steve finds Claire and the story goes from there. Why do so many of these stories have women running from their men and in the end they can't stay away from them.

Shelves: romance
Very un-PC novel with lots of angst. I found the H really creepy for about 60% of the book. But overall a fun read with possessiveness, fights and twists.
