for sex but never marriage She s 18 Okay, okay he thinks she s 20, but still He swallows the setup his evil mother manipulates without question and turns on his 18 year mistress who s pregnant.He tells her he will hunt her down, and make her pay, and she ll go to prison He later wonders why she never tried to get in touch Ahem, prison.When she comes back to town he sneers that she s not good enough to take to a dance because she probably doesn t know how to behave properly.He buys her a slutty red dress to not take her to the dance.He calls her a slut among other sweet names.They finally have sex again, and he flounces out because she reminds him that he wanted her as much as she wanted him.He constantly taunts her with how he could have her any time he wanted.That s just the tip of the iceberg.His mother, who he s backed all along the slut shaming way, set up the h to look guilty of stealing and cheating on the H and ran her out of town after giving the h money to get an abortion Wasn t that sweet Hallmark has a card for that I think A Me Maw she ain t hide spoiler The h comes back to town with an awesome revenge plot which is going along swimmingly until DP suddenly realized that most readers are just too spineless and wussy to want a female character to achieve retribution, revenge, reprisal, vengeance and all that fun stuff, and the revenge plot disintegrates into, gag me, forgiveness and understanding.The hero FINALLY finds out about the h s innocence, his mother s duplicity, and the son he never had He leaves in a hissy fit and wrecks his car, which unfortunately does not kill him This brings the h and the evil mother together, gag me again He s upset with them both when he wakes up from his coma or whatever it was The h moves into his house with her brilliant plot moppet as she continues to try and get control of his company, and he moans about his PT What was once sheer unadulterated hate between the trio is now lollipops and roses Need I mention that the drama, the angst and the entertaining portion of the evening dwindled after this SCREAM OF FRUSTRATION SCREAM OF RAGE Most humorous moment that probably wasn t meant to be funny The lout is lying in bed moaning about whether he will be able to walk again, then gets excited that he can still get an erection Oh Ms Palmer, what are we going to do with you Back to the plot, the h does what any spineless heroine does, she gives it all for her man He, of course, jumps to conclusions and slut shames, rants and raves all over again.If the h is going to be so stupid then she deserves him I read this in 1991typical Diana Palmer Susan Kyle With spoilers This is not your typical DP story Nor your typical DP h view spoiler She is unforgiving with vengeance on her mind hide spoiler Only he H flies the DP banner high quite high if you count his unimaginably selfish, cruel and push pull shenanigans view spoiler The story of the wronged h coming back to avenge her humiliation by the H and his snobbish mother certainly revved things up I happily lapped up this cold, hardened businesswoman who ruled the boardroom, and promise With spoilers This is not your typical DP story Nor your typical DP h view spoiler She is unforgiving with vengeance on her mind hide spoiler Only he H flies the DP banner high quite high if you count his unimaginably selfish, cruel and push pull shenanigans view spoiler The story of the wronged h coming back to avenge her humiliation by the H and his snobbish mother certainly revved things up I happily lapped up this cold, hardened businesswoman who ruled the boardroom, and promised retribution like never seen before in DP land.But what began as an assured 4 stars went southwards soon as the h gets exposed as a roll over doormat in wolf s clothing I sat gaping as she lets the still an asshat H demean and reduce her to nothingthan a willing body, which is what she always was to him In the past too, he self admittedly used her as a convenient booty call and only reluctantly threw a maybe we should get married after a teary tantrum He admits he never really meant to marry her That s horribly cynical apart from being deceitful Not that he saw himself getting married anyways But, yes she would not have been his choice Better than his social climber mom who had no qualms pointing out her unsuitability status, wealth, race wise and takes it upon herself to run the h out of town with her machinations.The customary ramblings are there, as are the rehashed conversations And then the never ending push pull and changing sentiments it was almost as if the H had amnesiac spells.I feel the basic problem is the length It goes on and on, and thus round and round A 24 chapter book that would have benefitted by chopping off at least half of it The story is basically okay but gets done in by the length The H s evil mother gets redeemed I had mixed feelings about that.The most likable character was of course Mr Smith, the bodyguard but he was also caricatured and de humanised as a prop who seemingly had no life or feelings outside his devoted role.Rounded off to a generous 2.5 stars hide spoiler This is a fun outlier in the DP canon The H h s story started out as a typical DP romance set in Montana Heroine was 18, orphaned, poor, na ve and lived on the Crow reserve with her great aunt and uncle Hero was the spoiled only son of a snobby mother and heir to the family corporation Mommy dearest wanted to break H h up after she found out heroine was pregnant She paid a local guy to accuse the heroine of theft and having a sexual affair with him Hero believed it because he didn t like t This is a fun outlier in the DP canon The H h s story started out as a typical DP romance set in Montana Heroine was 18, orphaned, poor, na ve and lived on the Crow reserve with her great aunt and uncle Hero was the spoiled only son of a snobby mother and heir to the family corporation Mommy dearest wanted to break H h up after she found out heroine was pregnant She paid a local guy to accuse the heroine of theft and having a sexual affair with him Hero believed it because he didn t like that he cared so much for the heroine Heroine was run out of town without the hero ever knowing she was pregnant And here s the twist Heroine meets her first husband in Chicago when his bodyguard Mr Smith almost runs her over He takes care of her and hides her during her pregnancy They marry and his name is on the boy s birth certificate He teaches her to run his corporation so that when he dies in a plane crash, she is running the domestic operations while her evil brother in law is running the international division.The story opens six years later in Chicago Heroine is plotting her revenge against the hero Her son is being cared for by Mr Smith, so she is free to conduct a hostile take over so she can have the mineral rights she needs Her great aunt dies, which means heroine has to return to Billings, Montana to face the H and his mother Because DP can t resist a downtrodden heroine, she has this executive lady trade her designer suits for a waitress uniform so she can spy on the executives from the hero s company while lulling the hero into thinking she s harmless It s ridiculous, but it s fun.Hero s mother is terrified h is going to tell the H her part in ruining his life he became a cynical playboy and she is agonizing about the baby Alive, adopted, aborted, boy, girl For once we get to see the villain suffer.Hero is both contrite and angry like any good DP hero He also squires an OW around, but is puzzled why the heroine isn t in tears He s jealous of Mr Smith, doesn t realize the little boy is his son and is pretty much clueless about everything The story turns from revenge when heroine realizes her brother in law is working against her, when heroine makes peace with the hero s mother, and hero is in a bad car accident DP keeps the tension up with the takeover battle and the hero s misunderstanding until the last minute Diana Palmer checklist Hairy chest NoBreast Description No but she s biggerCigarettes YesAlcohol YesTown Descriptions Chicago and

many times in the past, I never get tired of it, I love a little vengeance in my books heroines If it were a movie, this would easily go under the category, drama I especially loved forgiveness in this book, how easily Meredith have forgiven people who have wronged her 5 rainbow stars JB I read this way, way back in the day..and enjoyed my re read. I dropped this book like a hot potato, when I found out the heroine wasn t a typical DP heroine I liked. Meredith Ashe thought her heart was broken when Cy Harden s family ran her out of town as a scared teenager, penniless and pregnant Now, stronger and wiser, she s back, but this time as the poised, powerful head of a multinational corporation and she s planning a hostile takeover of Harden PropertiesCy doesn t know the secrets Meredith is hiding, and she has no intention of telling him She plans to let him think she s the same shy girl he abandoned years agobut she hasn t counted on the way her body still thrills to his touch And when Meredith begins to fall for Cy all over againeven her carefully made plans can t protect her The hero monster make the heroine s life miserable, but Guess who apologizes in the end no, not the hero but the heroine.Just another sh book More reasons for me to give up old books. Not your typical DP heroine.
