I normally love Lucy Gordon romances. This was not good. The heroine, Cassie/Mrs. Jane Henshaw had 2 personalities that felt like I was transported to the 60's for a LSD trip. I have to say this novel gave me a headache. The H/h (Marcel & Cassie/Mrs.Henshaw) meet after 10 years after a disastrous love affair where she lovingly betrayed him to save Marcel by prostituting herself with a man who was obsessed with Cassie. She marries the other guy and finally frees herself after 3 years of hell. She then turns herself into Mrs. Jane Henshaw. CONFUSED? This book is like a roller coaster of emotions that are made even worse by the author's need to be psycho-analysed for torturing the reader. I guess you can tell that I did not like this book. Try reading her other novels - Lucy Gordon is usually a 4-5 star writer.

I was born and raised in England, where I still live. I began my writing career doing features for magazines, sometimes interviewing famous people like Michael Caine, Warren Beatty, Charlton Heston, and sometimes gaining wonderful new experiences like camping out with lions in Africa. With a love of travel, I went to Venice, where I met a Venetian man. In that magical city we fell in love and got engaged in two days. Years later we are still together. What else could I be but a writer of romances? I've written over ninety books for Harlequin. Along the way I've been lucky enough to pick up a few awards. I've won the Romance Writers of America's RITA award twice, with SONG OF THE LORELEI (1991) and HIS BROTHE'S CHILD (1998), and finalled with A PEARL BEYOND PRICE (1989), FOR THE LOVE OF EMMA (1997) and GINO'S ARRANGED BRIDE (2005) , Many of my books are set in Italy, especially Venice. But I still travel a lot, and some of my recent productions have been set against new horizons such as Greece and China. Next stop, Russia. And after that - who knows? There are so many places to explore. As well as modern stories I've enjoyed writing historicals under the name Penelope Stratton. Come and meet me on my website: www.lucy-gordon.com
