Nicolas Dupre is a prideful, arrogant male who made his fortune in the music world while making no real human attachments. Serina is the small-town girl he left behind, whom he never forgot. Not only does a twenty year old passion unite them...there is a child as well. Hidden, secret babies are not my thing, especially when the mother passes off the child as her unknowing husband's for 12 years. Somehow, though, Lee makes it work. Serina is far from a perfect heroine and Nicolas is much too proud. The ending is full of honest revelations, and neatly wrapped up, albeit too neatly.
However, this is a Miranda Lee book and when she's good, there is no other Harlequin Presents writer who is hotter. Compared to her works of the 1990's & early 2000's, this book is average. But compared to her recent works, this book is excellent. Plus, having a blond hero gets an automatic star from me. 4 1/2 stars for this steamy read.
