Emily Thorne considered her-self the steady, quiet one of her family; she carried on with her job, saved for the future, hardly gave a thought to love and marriage. But was it true, or was she simply unawakened? Perhaps her stormy relationship with the wealthy Demis Kaladonis would provide the answer.
I think this book was a waste of time and money because the whole story is not believable and confusing . The heroine was so unlikable in my opinion , she kept trying to convince everybody that she was the practical and reasonable one in her family while acting childishly towards the hero . She even got herself in trouble going out with another guy , playing stupid and pretending she did not know what this other guy was after , just so she could show her independence from the hero !!!!! Really??? She was contrary just for the sake of it . I disliked the hero just a little bit less than the heroine because at least he tried to communicate with her and he did explain that it was over with the other woman many times , which I think is more than what some other romance novels heroes ever did . They like to keep their girls wondering and suffering :(:( . Still he was the typical dominating , arrogant so and so , who expected the girl's blind obedience . I gave the book a star for the last scene . I liked the hero's reciting poetry to his lady love .
