5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic yet hot, hot, hot, January 5, 2007
This review is from: The Marriage Campaign (Hardcover)
This is an old-fashioned romance, yet the hero is not so arrogant, cold and downright hateful to the woman he woos, as some romance protagonists are. I LIKED the fact that there was not so much drama, i.e., a scorned woman who stalked the couple or the new woman in this man's life.

Seriously, how many fatal attraction-type women ARE there that can't give up on a man? Helen Bianchin is a wonderful writer, but she needs an editor to rein her in on this particular habit of hers. Thankfully, this book does not include the "crazy ex-girlfriend," as country singer Miranda Lambert sings about.

Another plot device Bianchin resists trotting out in "The Marriage Campaign": There's no melodramatic point where the characters have a crisis of faith in the relationship and run away or walk out on the other. So this offers a lot of pages at the end to build on the happily ever after aspect. They are one hot couple and tease one another a bit, so it's interesting to the last page.

Gabbi and Benedict, the couple one of these reviewers might be referring to, are in "An Ideal Marriage." Another character, whose name escapes me at this moment, is the woman in Dom's past. She's kind of sad, so I would enjoy seeing her story if Bianchin hasn't already written it. HINT, HINT :)
