This line from the story, for me, illustrates just how incredibly passive the heroine of this story is.
The tale concerns an Australian woman, Rhianna, who meets the title's Spaniard, Gabriel, while in Spain. After a blissful year spent as lovers, he breaks her heart by announcing that it is time for him to marry. His requirements in a bride are that she be high born and Spanish but he graciously tells her she can remain as his mistress. She, not surprisingly, cannot accept this proposal and after fleeing to Australia later discovers she is pregnant with Gabriel's child.
Neither of the h and h in this story is well drawn but Gabriel's depiction is particularly one-dimensional. Because of this, I do not think either character really earns the reader's interest and getting through the story, at times, felt a bit of a grind. Rhianna's behaviour is irritating a lot of the time, by God is this girl wet; she did not have an ounce of self-control. Even when aware of what was at stake (keeping her son's existence from Gabriel) one touch from the man and all is always forgotten - repeatedly. A self-absorbed heroine whose every conversation and thought seemingly being about her life in relation to Gabriel's bed.
It has to be said that Rhianna spends an awful lot of time in the story packing and unpacking in various unfulfilled attempts to run away. One of my other annoyances about the story is the poor light that Spanish men appeared to be portrayed in as with Gabriel and then the brief appearance of his neighbour Alesander. It seemed to go way beyond machismo.Read more ›
I also could not warm to the heroine, she was completely feisty in her mind but none of that was seen in front of Gabriel, she was a quivering doormat with no sense of self preservation and pride to give him what for. Ahhhh Gabriel, the man who should have had his face slapped on numerous occasions - I didn't gel with him either, there are dominant males and just plain arrogant aholes, he comes across the latter.
I don't think any self respecting female would allow or enjoy how he treats her, ok it might come good in the end but oh what painful journey to get to the end.
This really wasn't what I was expecting, I gave it the benefit of doubt after reading the reviews here but sadly I have to agree with a lot of them, a far too weak willed heroine coupled with a self centred egotistical and ill mannered hero these two do not make you want to interact with them on any level really. Only the ending of this book brings it up to a 1.5 star read, I 90% hated it, the balance falls into 'I didn't like it'.
I was expecting a contemporary romance and instead got what felt like a dated Mills and Boon read. Sadly due to the many errors and the weak story I returned this book for a refund.
The main idea if the story was interesting in the respect that she loved the guy but he had to marry a Spaniard bride so she left him.
But the way the story was written did not show all the emotions it could have at points it jumped from hr views to his but got habit confused at points.
I would have preferred a much stronger woman who had some kind of resistance towards a guy who treated her wrong. I would not have paid to read this book but cause it was free it was worth the time I spent reading it. At least we got a happy ending!

She raises his son and a chance meeting rekindles their love.
Good book although Gabriel was annoying at times, was he really that stupid to not know rhianna was in love with him. He was painted as a Spanish caveman. Read morePublished on 2 Mar. 2013 by Scotty
