And this one has so many familiar features.
The heroine who switches fiances in the very first chapter. She marries a man who she does not love and has only met a week before the wedding. Of course he is very rich. And she spends the whole of the first half of the book thinking about her previous fiance. At one horrendous point in her wedding the heroine, Vicky, actually turns towards her original fiance rather than the man she is going to marry. Delicious. At least Vicky knows she's being an absolute tart and feels some guilt.
And what ties Vicky to her new husband? Why the pleasure he gives her in bed of course. How wonderful. Like I said. A proper deep series romance. Sublime in its simplicity.
Vicky is also cold-bloodedly clear-sighted. By page 88 she acknowledges she doesn't love her husband. Even though she's sleeping with him regularly. I almost feel sympathy for the hero. Except of course, he was the person who advocated a marriage with a woman he didn't know. And who was engaged to his younger brother.
I liked Vicky. Not least because she enjoyed living in her husband's home and was not in a mad rush to return to working. (She didn't really have a career) Unusually for a series romance heroine, Vicky is actually a very kind person.
Towards the end of the novel Vicky makes one big effort to behave like a typical series romance idiot. Fortunately the hero thwarts her in the nicest possible way! He's a bit strange for a romance hero. A very gentle macho man.
As I read towards the end of the novel I found myself getting nervous. What madness would the author invent to cause a Big Misunderstanding between the loving couple? Happily she resisted the temptation.Read more ›
