    1. Melanie♥

      Sorry, just did not like this one. I usually like the older man/younger woman theme in my HPs, but this one fell short. I found Gina to be beyond pathetic during the first third of the book while her hero Quentin was being callous and seemingly cruel.Her "revenge" was appropriate for her age of 19 years: ill-informed and poorly planned and executed.

      DNF - I just couldn't with this book. I totally got that the hero was wildly (and inappropriately) attracted to the heroine in the beginning. He was cruel to be kind- how could he, a snob and old enough to know better, hook up with a dirty stable girl? The hero, I could understand, but the heroine - good lord. If you look up TSL in the romance reader's dictionary her (dirt-covered) face would be next to it. From swimming naked in the lake to learning nothing except for how to wash her hair as sh [...]

      Ah. My first HP read in quite awhile and luckily it wasnt half bad :) I have had this on my TBR for quite awhile and I dont even remember why (nothing new with most of my TBR though) I liked both the H/h even though the H was a true a-hole and the h was a witch midway through the book not to mention an idiot(view spoiler)[why in the world would she listen to a person who hasnt ever had one nice thing to say to her and all of a sudden goes out of her way to talk to you? And knowing that she was p [...]

      3.5 starsMay-dec/guardian-ward-ish type story where the hero treats the much younger and dirty heroine like an disgusting underling but then goes for her hot and heavy when she comes into an inheritance and gets cleaned up. Juicy OW stuff and some get-even. The heroine totally pee'od me at the end with her gullibility. Totally thought she got what was coming to her. Decent enough read. Medium on the wtfery.

      I just had to go spoil my happy 'Xmas heart by reading this crapfest didn't I ? Maybe it's because I have a love-hate relationship with Margaret Pargeter and couldn't help myself when I was cleaning up my storage room which contains lots of very old harlequins I inherited from my favorite aunt. I was sure that I had read this before but I was soon proven wrong after looking at the first page. How could I have missed out on this drama filled "emotional and psychological sado-masochist" type of "r [...]

      amazingly i liked the book. yes, amazingly because the hero was such an asshole. my he behaved abominably. how could gina go on loving him !? if i were in gina's place, any love i had had felt for quentin would have died and left only a profound disgust. i don't understand the harlequin books somtimes. is love based on lust only !? because she was greatly attracted to him, they had lust between them so she goes on loving him ?? personality count for nothing !?

      With all that blurb, I was expecting a Diana Palmer kind of asshat hero but I've got to mention that he wasn't half as awful as them, even at his worst. Besides, it was quite clear from his behaviour that he luuurved the heroine even when she was a plain jane. It's hilarious how these old school books give no hero POV, but show the heroes' luuurve through their white/grey/pale face, and the funniest of all, that white ring around their mouths (reminds me of sports players sporting the white mois [...]

      There was entirely too much yelling in this book and a whole lot of confusing dialogue and scenes I could have done without.
