    This story had some fun, dramatic elements, but never really jelled. It starts out with a Cinderella h with low self-esteem - and she manages to keep that low self-esteem for all but the last five pages of the book, which got tiresome. The h must marry one of her adoptive grandfather's grandsons to inherit his estate. She asks the wealthy-in-his-own-right, man-whore hero to marry her rather than the priggish grandson who is always putting her down. The hero accepts her proposal, but warns her th [...]

    I feel like I'm an outsider on this one (compared to friends I usually agree with). I don't think it met its full potential. Mostly because the h ran the insecure martyr train way past the station.This was an odd LG. I don't recall ever reading one where the hero was this rapey. It's almost like she was channeling Lamb or one of the other seriously old school authors. Perhaps she was trying on the common style of the day or perhaps I've just read the wrong LG's. Please share if there are others [...]

    SPOILERS AHEAD! Don't let the cover turn you off. This was my first LG book and I could see why she was so popular. I got an original copy from . I am so glad I did. The hero was very reluctant and she was one very uncertain and innocent. She was so sweet and naive that it hurt me to hear the things he said to her. His treatment of her during their marriage was horrible. He really did (dubious consent here) rape her. It was not violent but when she said NO AND MEANS IT. She does eventually enjoy [...]

    3.5 stars. This is a story about Claire Danes :P Well, actually Claire and Dane. Claire, our h; is all set to inherit money from her distant and tough Grandfather (who isn't really a blood relation) after years of playing nanny to him. The only glitch? She has to marry one of his grandsons to avail herself of her inheritance. Disclaimer: she's only the adopted daughter of her parents and therefore, not truly related to any of the potential bridegrooms (so nothing remotely incestuous or 'Lanniste [...]

    I really enjoyed this. For me, Lynne Graham can be very hit or miss, especially when her heroines are so downtrodden. But for me, this had the right balance between passion, angst, sorrow and forgiveness. I felt the heroine's confusion, pain, bitterness and fear. I could tell that the hero was in over his head and did things a normally sane person would never do. But then again, he was bonkers for the heroine who knew how to play it cool.

    A fun Lynne Graham.

    Claire was adopted into a wealthy family and raised by her miserly grandfather when her parents died. Her grandfather's will leaves her his entire estate, on the condition that she marry one of his grandsons. Dane is one of her cousins and also is extremely rich through his own hard work mainly. He treats her like a kid sister and reluctantly agrees to marry her so she can get her money. Of course, like in all Graham's books, the two of them have insane sexual chemistry but an early misunderstan [...]

    what can i say. the book is stupid, no really it is. Claire is such a doormat plus she swims in self pity. self pity is her middle name. and Dane is such arrogant bully. also the rape.god help us with this horrible book.

    Este es el dichoso libro que no encontraba, y si lo sé no lo hubiera leído.De todos los Harlequin que he leído en mi vida este es el más "moderno" y el que menos me ha gustado.Dane ha tratado a Claire como una puta mierda tooooodo el libro. Esos comentarios fríos, esas pullas y esos "arréglate un poco haz el favor" me han sacado de mis casillas. No entiendo en qué punto pudo ella enamorarse de este imbecil y que esta historia finalmente acabase bien. No lo entiendo. Menuda chafada me he l [...]

    Just because he kept telling her and himself it wasn’t rape, doesn’t make it any less so.He raped her. Plain and simple.No redeeming that.And he thought she deserved it, makes him worse than a bastard rapist.Almost EVERY single rapist thinks it wasn’t rape.Tell me how this was different.

    This was a strange one The basic plot is naive virgin h spends her life slaving for cold adopted grandfather. When he dies he words his will so she only inherits if she marries one of her cousins. One is engaged, one is just like their grandfather and the other is the playboy black sheep of the family. So, in order to secure the retirement of her beloved servants and to have some money so she can get married and settle with her beau she begs the black sheep for a marriage in name only, and he a [...]

    Ugh. Dane is such a pig. I mean he can be charming and all that, but goodness gracious, if he gets angry - look out! He uses sex as punishment and only begins to realize what he's done (and feel some remorse) when she breaks down and becomes a shell of a person for two days. And he never does improve all that much. When he gets angry he gets high handed and attacks her with sex. And what's with the inability to express his feelings? At one point he admits that he had every excuse lined up in the [...]

    Just delete the part where the H was so mad at the h and it will be a good story. h have insecurities but it's understandable you can actually feel her emotion.The H hide his true feeling but his actions speaks. I like the first third and the third was very good. The second third after the marriage part was horrible. I hate problems over trust and the H was so nice to h I was amazed but then came the big misunderstood and ruined the peaceful relationships. I hoped that we will witness the lives [...]

    Good one, one of the older ones by Lynne Graham. Compared to her more recent Heroes, the main character in this book was quite decent to the heroine. He helps her out of a bind and is generally gentle and protective of her. There is just one asshat moment when they are newly married and the paparazzi find out, he suspects it’s her, then he starts suspecting all her motives, but I think he was influenced by his nasty lawyer.

    I would have given the book 3 stars because I liked the Hero and the plot, but as quite a few people stated, the heroine needs a revamp on her self-esteem. Her thoughts began to grate on my nerves half way through the book. The hero was actually quite generous. Securityd fidelity sounds like love to me.

    An ok read, but.1- The H is an insensitive bastard2- The h is a pitiful "woe is me" martyr3- I never felt as though there was any real emotion between them4- the damn thing was waaay too long. (Or maybe it just felt that way)5- I wanted to slap every damn character in the bookI usually love Lynne Graham classic HP's but this is one of the few that I could take or leave.

    Didnt like the book at all until the last 2 pages. It left me unsatisfied. It has great potential but the way heroine's character shaped with all the doubting and insecurity hanging in her mind left a bad taste in my mouth. It wasn't exactly a rape as some people written, heroine finds herself shocked that she responded so zealously to hero, so i won't put it as rape. Hero was gud but his POV is lost to us many times. Book concentrates on heroine's thots and her POV majorly. Overall I wanted to [...]

    Last time I gave 1 star was Well, I don't remember but the thing is, I've never thought I would give it to Ms. Graham. Why? Because she's actually one of my favorite HP Authors. But I can't help but feel that I wasted two hours of my day with a wishy-washy heroine and rapey hero.

    I am positive I read this I just don't remember what I thought of it to score. Will re-read and review.
