Cynara hadn't seen Zack Buchanan in five years, not since she'd hurt him -- hurt herself even more -- by leaving him.

I love an alpha hero as much as the rest, but, come on, give me something to work with besides the ever present magic P. Get thee to a psychiatrist. View all 3 comments. Jan 07, Aou rated it really liked it Shelves: I just want you, Cynara, need you so much.

I think H redeemed himself. Jul 09, Jenny rated it liked it. Heroine was engaged to be married to a guy who left her days before the wedding because he found out she couldn't have children.

He still thinks heroine is an immoral slut who left him once his father gave her a big fat cheque. There is a rape scene so be warned! I liked the characters and how intense their emotions were. I truly believe their love was genuine and I love how they never got over each other no matter the years they lived apart. So first pages kept me hooked. Didnt like the middle of the book though.

There was way too much focus on the kids and no focus on the romance and this is what ruined the novel for me. The plot would have been absolutely fine without it. It made no sense except to get readers to hate the H and perhaps martyrize the h. Father felt she would be an unsuitable wife for his son, being a lounge singer and had hired a detective to dig out skeletons in her closet.

Unlike most detectives in HP land, this one did an extremely thorough job so father could threaten to reveal her Deep Dark Secret. Hero was in love with her and had asked her to marry him. She turned him down, pretending to be an opportunist only interested in short affairs because she was convinced that H would spurn her once he found out The Deep Dark Secret. So she was 21 when she had that belief, but five years later, when they re-meet as hotel owner and singer-employee, to hold on to that belief and put up with his anger and resentment was a tad much.

He wants a chance to get her out of his system and proposes a less-than-savory means of rekindling their affair view spoiler [ she needs to rest her damaged vocal cords and could not sing. He offers to supplement her income if she becomes his mistress. He makes it clear he wants h to have nothing to do with his family.

He will see her only during the week. His mother takes care of his kids and he sees them only during the weekends. Ex-wife died. To me, it felt like he turned into a bad father because of what had happened, running away from intimacy with those he loved. To be fair, Mortimer showed H and h cared deeply for each other despite it all.

And there were other good moments view spoiler [ like H explaining he loved his ex-wife, no hang-ups and no bitterness; he had let her go willingly when she fell for another man. And I liked his honesty when they first met; he was upfront with being recently separated and not ready for a commitment when he first met her.

But I viewed her interference with his family affairs with mixed feelings. Good that she refused to be intimidated by him and did what was best for his children.

Me, I tend to get bugged by it. Like her fully intending to spank his son. Her ex had dumped her before their wedding for this reason and she assumed all men would find her undesirable because of it. Mortimer does write very well, got to give her credit for a good angsty read. View all 9 comments.

Sep 10, Julz rated it liked it Shelves: Well, this was interesting. An in your face rape scene that will turn a lot of women off this story. The entire book revolved around a big secret of the heroine's that turned out lame. And ol' granddad blackmailing her over it made him a huge douchebag. But if you don't like your Harleys over-sweet and can overlook some serious plot fails, then you might give it a try.

Mar 05, Fanniny Moreno Zavaleta rated it did not like it Shelves: Couldn't get over the rape, but how could I when he kept on being mean to her. Oct 13, Azet rated it it was amazing Shelves: How do you do it Carole Only by being cruel to you could I stop myself from telling you I loved you. And my only excuse is that I love you so much I ache inside! This time to avenge her through suggesting to be his mistress. In its own way,this book had an dark shadow over it,and it intensified when Zack raped her.

Oh god that scene! It actually broke my heart for those two,and for Zack believing that she has never loved him. The pain they cause each other just to hide their love was really devastating for me,cuz i could feel their utterly pain,and i just longed for these two to be together. View all 5 comments.

Nov 10, sbf rated it really liked it. This is definitely bad and outdated, and has a full-on rape. And yet, something about it drew me in anyway -- I think it's that you could tell the hero couldn't help but love her. Definitely lost steam in the middle with way too much focus on the kids, but still a decent read if you don't mind all the old-school cruelty.

Aug 31, Martha rated it it was ok Shelves: This is an older Harlequin Presents. The heroine fell in love with the hero years ago, but she has a secret, so she leaves him "for his own good. I sort-of liked the heroine, but she should have stood up for herself sooner. I did not like the hero much at all; he was arrogant and acted like a bully.

Mar 27, Kiki added it Shelves: Let me just spell it out. It WAS rape, not borderline. And he hasn't at any point truly apologised for it. However no ranting, or review, or rating, as it's definitely be another one star and a word essay. I'd rather suggest boogenhagen's review: She has sugarcoated it, or rather used sugar dripping sarcasm but I'm sure you can draw your own conclusions. Yeah no.

I'm fine with dub-con in my mainstream romances, but full on rape? I don't have so much of an issue with it there, provided the reasoning and context and how it's written and I go into those with an understanding that it's there.


But I don't expect or want in a mainstream romance, the hero being an all out rapist Yeah no. But I don't expect or want in a mainstream romance, the hero being an all out rapist. It's unappealing! It's disturbing! Why would Harlequin think it's okay? I just don't understand it, I guess. He was raping her! His face was fierce as he moved above her, her hands still secured by one of his. God, this was killing her! But the emotional and mental agony was even worse than that, Zack treating her as if she were just an available body he could lose himself in.

She made no move to pull them on. With a disgusted look in her direction Zack strode into the bedroom. His head went back haughtily. Nov 26, Tia rated it really liked it. This novel had a really intense rape scene in it that had me cringing.

Other than that, the novel was great, especially when the truth about the heroine came out and the hero accepted her no matter what. Jan 28, Nora rated it really liked it. Despite his raspy x46 voice and the one time he raped her, I would read it again!

He's a total fool in love, his children call her mom in the end, Crazy Gramps did NOT get the thrashing his deserved before he did, and they were separated for 5 years half bc of Crazy Gramps and half because of h's insecurity, BUT. He loved her to the exclusion of everything else, including his kids. He cared not and felt not until she came back into his life, and okay so he hurt her in his anger at his perceive Despite his raspy x46 voice and the one time he raped her, I would read it again!

He cared not and felt not until she came back into his life, and okay so he hurt her in his anger at his perceived rejection by her, BUT. The best line in the entire book was spoken by him: We've already had that talk at school.

Besides, I get all the visual lessons I need from you two. He goes batshit when she won't stop talking about it, but he doesn't deny it, he doesn't let her take ANY responsibility for it, he hates that it happened, he promises to never do it again, and not just when he tells her her injured body is no use to him, but later too.

He also went batshit when he saw he had hurt her and she didn't tell him. He goes batshit every time he's hurt actually, from any cause. So, he redeemed himself in my book. He also didn't set out to rape her, but he didn't view it as rape because he's a bit thickheaded, especially when it comes to HER.

Aug 19, Tiger rated it liked it Shelves: I like the aspect of involving the family and friends; it's a good thing that the author didn't just focus on the 'angst' in the story. Although, I agree with most people thinking that her secret is too shallow; and yes, what he did on the beginning of their agreement is rape!

I appreciate that the author didn't play it down and didn't mask it as something else. Overall, I really enjoyed it. Oct 15, Ashima rated it it was amazing. Loved it!!
