    Very disappointing read For most of the book, the Hero and heroine were truly vile to one another He in particular I was actually walking on eggshells while reading this book because as a reader, I was uncomfortably and unwillingly thrust into the role of voyeur to an abusive marriage Abuse which ultimately ends in rape, one of the most horrific things that can ever happen to a woman Yet, the heroine continues to love the hero and unrealistically goes on with her everyday life showing absol Very disappointing read For most of the book, the Hero and heroine were truly vile to one another He in particular I was actually walking on eggshells while reading this book because as a reader, I was uncomfortably and unwillingly thrust into the role of voyeur to an abusive marriage Abuse which ultimately ends in rape, one of the most horrific things that can ever happen to a woman Yet, the heroine continues to love the hero and unrealistically goes on with her everyday life showing absolutely no signs of trauma To make matters worse a child is conceived as a result of this rape which again I found offensive Rape isn t an uncommon occurrence in these vintage HP s, but for some reason this one wasgraphic and vulgar As a reader I couldn t move past it, or the other 100 pages of abuse.I don t see a HEA for this couple He will either kill her or hopefully she will eventually wise up and leave him Save yourself two hours, and find a book that really is romance Honestly, this one was too hard to stomach I m sorry to be so brutal about this review, but I can t help it

    there wasn t one moment of fun between these two well he took her on a tour of the sugar factory woo hoo..and the OW was so awful and he believed all her lies..so it wasn t a very believable reconciliation by the end.
