I remember thinking that this book was a lovely story about one man's love for a girl who was badly abused, and how his love for her helped her become strong enough to facedown her enemies. It had that element to it, but wow, was this story told in a terrible manner.
The Good: Burke really loves Arielle and wants to help her get over her fear of men and life after she was terribly abused by her first husband. There were some sweet scenes where he tries to court her, and takes care of her when she's ill. Arielle seems like a real sweetheart, and a nice person who deserves better than what life has heaped on her. She was married to an old lecher at age 15, and when he couldn't get her pregnant, he tried to give her to his illegitimate son. Poor Arielle. It was a terrible life, but I still rather liked her as a character.
The Bad: All the rest of it. When Arielle turns down Burke's attempts to court her, he proceeds to try to take advantage of her financial ruination, kidnap her, force her to marry him when she is delirious with fever and doesn't know what she's agreeing to, and then when she isn't "strong" enough soon enough for him, he uses reverse psychology to scare her (an abuse victim) into standing up for herself. But he makes sure she knows that she can only stand up to him because HE allows it (because he's just that great of a guy). Sadly, I remember Burke being one of Counter's sweeter, gentler heroes.Read more ›
Reason 1: While trying to convince the heroine to marry him, he has hot sex with someone else. And I mean three times in that very first encounter, and is totally satisfied by the woman. And for good measure he decides to keep her as his mistress until he does marry the heroine. This little episode disrupted the romantic mood of the story. Those are not the mental pictures I want to have while reading a love story.
Reason 2: The abuse and humiliation the heroine suffers in this story, goes beyond anything I want to read in a romance book. If I wanted a greek tragedy, I would not bother with romance novels.
Reason 3: Last, but definitely not least, the heroine was physically scarred by all the abuse she suffered. White, thin scars are all over her back, bottom and thighs, "TOO numerous to count". She even has some on her breasts and belly. And the reader is reminded of said scars again, and again, and again, throughout the second half of the book. Yikes!! I don't understand why so many romance authors write about a scarred heroine, or one who is scarred during the plot development. This is a complete turn-off for me.

It is Catherine Coulter but the pot is lame. She can do better. Believe it or not the constant sex in one form or another was tedious. Read morePublished 14 days ago by PotterPam

This is typical Catherine Coulter. Some humorous moments, alpha male, pliable heroine. Not bad, but not my favorite book by this author.Published 1 month ago by Catbert
