Far and away my all-time favourite M&B/Harlequin romance and I can’t quite put my finger on why that should be. Is it the Cinderella factor? The second chance? The reunion? The amazing chemistry and his swoon-worthy obsession of her, which even five years of absence couldn’t dilute? Oh yes, definitely that last one.
Perhaps it is little formulaic when it comes to characterisation but then it is a M&B romance, and I like my romances the way I like my chocolate – smooth and creamy. You can keep your ‘sun-ripened tangerine with a hint of chilli’ and I’ll sit down with my Cadbury’s Whole nut and rejoice in another opportunity to have my heart wrenched and my tear ducts drained.
I think I must have read this at least ten times.
