I think the utter lack of justice and having an h grovel to the skanky slime swiller step mother is just about the lowest of the low - even for HPlandia. This is why I absolutely despise most of MM's backlist.

This seemingly routine reunion-revenge-moc drama was so much more. No recent HP I read has invested as much in character development as this one. Her suffering, her self hatred, her bitterness all pull you in deep, and thankfully the author instead of losing momentum actually manages to elevate it to true angsty perfection.
It was a true cleansing and deliverance of her soul from her actual and self adjudged sins to a hitherto unknown place - happiness. As much as I was enjoying this I was still mentally prepared for the usual love-redemption-hea routine, but the ending totally moved it to another level.
This is real redemption and forgiveness which is for yourself and others too! And for all his intentions of retribution, he never really does anything to hurt her. Even his thoughts of revenge are mild and whimsical. I mean, landing her in his bed where she's plenty happy! View all 6 comments.

A revenge story that is really about unrequited love. A redemption story that has commenced before the hero comes on the scene. Poor little rich girl heroine grew up in the hotel her father owned. He goe A revenge story that is really about unrequited love. He goes back to Italy. She also is suffering from partial amnesia, not remembering the accident at all. She and her friend in the wheelchair will have a MOC for six months. Her daughter needs life saving treatment in the US.
The hero says she must give him a son, and the heroine has to lie and agree, knowing the chances are slim after her accident. They marry. That turnaround from judgmental older lady to mother figure the heroine always craved is really sweet. They eventually end up in bed and the heroine feels healed from the horrors of her rape. He wants revenge not to fall in love again. They go to Italy to meet his family. Two of his sisters have babies while they are there.
More guilt for the heroine. The estate is tied up in legal problems and the heroine is desperate for cash, so the hero gives it to her. The housekeeper overhears and they go together. The hero also happens to be there and hears it all. HEA with a paragraph about a baby nine months later. The hero was a great guy — totally unsuited for the revenge game. The heroine obviously needed the asking-forgiveness part of her twelve-step program, and it felt right when she confronted the H and the housekeeper.
The stepmother scene was overkill, though. The woman was truly horrible to the heroine as the years went by. Still, this was an intense story of self-destruction and healing and the kind of love that never dies. View all 12 comments.

Melanie Milburne is starting to win me over as an author. This is another book by her that I enjoyed and which also had a lot of character depth and emotional content that made it a deeper and meaningful read. Readers who long for a heroine who has made mistakes and wasn't always a nice person, would appreciate Gemma. Gemma was a mean girl growing up.
She was sharp-tongued and bitter-spirited, lashing out because of her guilt, loneliness, and just plain feeling unloved for who she was. I really Melanie Milburne is starting to win me over as an author. I really respected her for owning up to her past mistakes, and I felt that her journey was realistic and just plain heart-wrenching. Despite her mean acts as a teen, she didn't deserve what happened to her. She was betrayed by a person who should have been there for her, and that escalated into an even worse situation.
But at the end, she was still able to forgive that persona and own up to her own wrongs. I respect her madly. Andreas was a good guy. He started out wanting revenge against Gemma for the past, but he treats her very well from the beginning, even though he wants to get her back for her cruel rejection and the lie she told.
He showed a lot of depth, and wasn't just the run of the mill Italian billionaire who can have any women he wants. I think he never stopped loving Gemma, and that love continued to motivate his actions towards her. He was the right man to give her heart to, and he proves it again and again. This is one of those books you don't want to put down when you start reading it. Love that with Harlequin Presents books, because they are books you can finish in two hours if you are able to.
When you get one that makes you want to dive in, and you're sad when it's over, it just feeds the desire to read more.
