Ever since his fiancee Petula Hogan had walked out on him to marry someone else Carl Elliott had been a changed man bitter and suspicious of all women and Gail who h. The premise of the story is that the heroine agrees to a marriage of convenience with the Hero who has been jilted by his true love beautiful goddess fiancee after breaking his leg Yep you read it right this paragon of all that is feminine grace and charm dumps our valiant H just because he had a simple fracture mending in 6 weeks tops and runs off with another agile man There is no danger of loss of limb or paralysis the H just needed crutches till he could get the walking cast on but the fragile ethereal OWtrue love couldn t handle the damageThe h has of course been seekritly in lurve with the H forevah so she jumps at the chance to be his live in throw rug They marry and immediately the H turns into the biggest jerk in the universes since the last Lilian Peake book He is constantly telling our poor mousy h how plain boring and utterly disgusting she is compared to his true lurve OW Then he tells her that he will be dumping our doormat h as soon as he gets enough work out of herOur h s supposed plainness and non excitement does NOT keep the H out of her bed so I guess true lurve avowals forevah to his former fiancee are no guarantee of fidelity on the H s part Then comes the big shocker the OW gets divorced and the h doesn t say anything to the H mostly cause every time the h says anything regarding H s twue lurve he backhands her This failure to inform earns the pregnant h another backhand across the room and into a cabinet this time and the H throws her out to boot Sadly as this is old old skool angst harley style the h is so distraught while driving she wrecks and loses the babyShe winds up at her sister s the only woman in the book who has the very good sense and a huge husband to tell the H where to go and that the h hates his guts in perpetuity Good thing the sis lied cause the h is STILL so in lurve she tells her sister not to say anything bad about our erstwhile H cause she will always always lurve him and be his doormat scraping gutter Sis wants to offer aid and assistance but sadly no backbone transplants for the h were available Of course the H shows up hat in hand sorta apologizes and asks h to come back cause now he really does lurve her forevah or at least until another hot blonde babe shows up with whip in hand to force H to his knees and make him crawl off pantingly after her hopefully for the poor deluded h in this book that happy occurrence happens approximately three pages after this book endsIn spite of the all the WTF ry and probably because of it I like this book It takes style and skill to make a truly awful horrible Hero and yet keep the reader glued to the outcome MP had a talent for that and I just couldn t put the book down I do have to warn unsuspecting readers that this is not a post 2000 Harleuin Romance when the line went sweet and politically correct This is an old skool contemporary bodice ripper and than a few readers have thrown this against the wall in disgust Thus the book is not only a
