    The saying goes: HE SHOULD HAVE A LONG SPOON THAT SUPS WITH THE DEVIL Get it? Be on your guard, heroine! But this reviewer can ask after reading the thing – which character is really the devil in this story?

But this reviewer can ask after reading the thing – which character is really the devil in this story? Hero In the heroine’s mind it’s the hero since she was attracted to him at 17 and he gave her a gentle mocking kiss in the rose garden. The next time she saw him he was demanding her father bail his uncle out of jail. Heroine threw a heavy glass ashtray (remember those?) at him and gave him a scar above his eye. Now he’s back, three years later, buying the heroine’s family manor house and jeopardizing her brother’s chance at making some easy money. Oh, and he wants to marry her. But what about the OW, her boarding school "friend," whom the hero dangles in front of her? Daddy Daddy dearest doesn’t seem like the devil at first glance. He did lose everything trying make up for his business partner’s embezzlement (hero’s uncle). And he had two strokes. And he is mournful whenever he talks to the heroine. Oh, and he never told the heroine about the priest’s hole (a secret hiding place from Elizabethan times) in the manor house. Very curious Brother Brother got into gambling. Made a deal to be a front for a property developer. Wanted heroine to keep gross proper developer “sweet” Was angry and slut-shamed heroine when she kissed hero. Flounced from the family when things didn’t go his way. I think any HP reader with sense will see that Daddy and Brother were the baddies in this story and hero is the good guy who has carried a torch for the heroine for three years even though her family is ridiculously corrupt. We won’t talk about the May/December age difference. It was the 1980’s.

    Courtney’s daddy is posh and in business with Blair’s uncle. Courtney has known Blair for years, but she doesn’t like him. She particularly doesn’t like him when she’s 17. Her non-friend Kate Lydyard is being all salacious and hussy-like about him, and it makes Courtney uncomfortable. Then Blair kisses her in the rose garden and she’s all conflicted. And then one night, Blair comes ‘round to shout at her father for not helping his uncle, who is now in prison for embezzlement. Courtney’s daddy is Courtney’s daddy is posh and in business with Blair’s uncle. Courtney has known Blair for years, but she doesn’t like him. She particularly doesn’t like him when she’s 17. Her non-friend Kate Lydyard is being all salacious and hussy-like about him, and it makes Courtney uncomfortable. Then Blair kisses her in the rose garden and she’s all conflicted. And then one night, Blair comes ‘round to shout at her father for not helping his uncle, who is now in prison for embezzlement. Courtney’s daddy is all hand flapping and pale, and Blair is all finger pointing and menace, so Courtney throws an ashtray at Blair. Courtney has a good arm, and manages to scar Blair. He’s still got it when he returns to their village three years later to complete the ruin he brought to her family. In the intervening years, Courtney has been living with her brother in a little cottage. It’s rent free, because Courtney is sort of not really dating the owner’s son. Courtney’s daddy is in a nursing facility nearby, slowly recovering from a stroke. He got off better than his business partner, who had a heart attack and died. The family still lost all their money, and Courtney’s useless older brother is being incredibly useless about it. He should be working for his godfather, a position Courtney regularly has to plead with the godfather over, because her brother is so useless. He’s been gambling and has fallen in with a bad crowd. To clear his debts, he’s given one job: buy the family home, which is up at auction for a second time, for his thug developer boss. The brother (naturally) fails auction by not realising that one must have the highest bid when the hammer comes down. Now the thug developer is threatening to break his legs. Can Courtney please take care of the problem for him? Obviously, she’ll need to do it without getting herself raped, because a brother can’t have his sister turn into a slag, because what would daddy say? Blair’s bought the house. He’s probably used the embezzlement money. And now he wants Courtney. So of course Blair is in love with Courtney, and Courtney is an idiot. Courtney’s family are parasites, but useful to Blair as emotional blackmail. Blair is not a terrible person. It’s difficult to credit, though, that he’s madly and passionately in love with Courtney. He seems more set on this vision of a life where he’s master of the mansion and she’s his gracious wife. I was sympathetic towards Courtney. She didn’t understand why she was attracted to Blair, and didn’t want to be. And there’s no way she could have told her awful family to sod off, so she was stuck. She has to cope with knowing that Kate Lydyard has had her man first, with all the attendant tortures of jealousy and inadequacy. I didn’t dislike her, but she was sort of an idiot. There’s nothing very new here – Sara Craven has used this set up a couple of times. I always enjoy hating on the heroine’s horrible family. I’m always amused by a marriage proposal where the hero hides how desperately in love he is by implying that all he wants is a dinner party hostess and baby maker.

    Ok so maybe I am a vengeful bitch but I wanted her father and brother to rot in jail!!! Those bastards deserve to be in jail for stealing that money and then killing the poor innocent uncle. Im so glad she finally told him she loved him. He so deserved it. What a great guy I mean he was and angel and she deserved him in the end. They are too nice to be true. I would have made those bastards suffer they were both willing to sacrifice her for their own end even wanting her sister to "be nice" to h Ok so maybe I am a vengeful bitch but I wanted her father and brother to rot in jail!!!

    A nice vintage read. A besotted H who relentlessly pursues the h. He has loved her since she was 17 (or before) and he has waited for her to grow up. So three years later he comes back. Not sure if the h has grown up, even after the years has gone by. Some people, like this h, never mature. I don’t know how many times this h was crying, was having a headache, was extremely tired, was looking pale. She always had some sort of inner crisis. Because of the h, I take one star off.

    7-10 June 2012 This could've been classic Harlequin Presents, but it was just so drawn out and too tentative that all the momentum built from the tension between the hero and heroine just spluttered and died.

Weird. ] 7-10 June 2012 This could've been classic Harlequin Presents, but it was just so drawn out and too tentative that all the momentum built from the tension between the hero and heroine just spluttered and died.
