5.0 out of 5 stars A heart-stopping romance!, 4 July 2008

This review is from: Again the Magic (Mass Market Paperback)
Wow, what a wonderful writer and what a great story. I loved it. I am not going to give a review, so many have done a great job, but I will give my thoughts on it.

I loved John Mckenna, for me he was almost right up there with Derek Craven.
From stable boy to one of the richest men in NY. JM came back with every intention of revenge against the woman who spurned him, or so he thought, but he loved her too much to go through with it.
In the begining, you feel the heroines loneliness, and the vacuum that she lives in to numb her devastating loss. Then she meets Mckenna again, after 12yrs, and the shell cracks. She tells her best friend, Adam, she doesn't know if she'd survive this time after Mckenna leaves.
But later on you tend to feel a deeper empathy for the hero, especially at the end, when he's in so much pain, after he humbles himself for the woman he loves,
only to get shot down, once again.
Sigh, that was bad.

SPOILER ALERT!
When Mckenna realises he's lost Aline, who spurns him once again. He cannot bear the pain. He seeks out, Mrs Faircloth, the housekeeper, (the only mother he's known, from the time he was a little orphan boy.)He just stand there staring at Mrs Faircloth,devastated, knowing he had no where else to go. She opens her arms to him and he quietly weeps on her shoulders.
Oh god, that was heart-wrenching. You have to have read the story to know what I'm talking about!
I wanted to yell at Aline. What was wrong with that woman?!
Really, this man loved her beyond forever and she couldn't tell him the truth about her 'illness/accident' It had to take her long suffering brother, Marcus, to show her the ways of her stupidity!
Seriously she didn't deserve him, she should have done a lot more groveling in my opinion.(Or taken a page out of Sara Fielding's book. She was a great heroine.)

The secondary romance between Gideon and Olivia was good, and because it gives you a break to collect your breath from the emotional rollercoaster you're on when reading about Mckenna and Aline.

A great story full of emotions and angst.
