    Great example of sexual harrassment

    I've recently discovered McNaught and I've been reading everything of hers I can find, so I was very disappointed at this particular effort. The fact that it was published in '84 seems to indicate it is an earlier work, so that's forgiveable. I actually laughed out loud at the blatent sexual harrassment the 'hero' uses to get the girl. She's an idiot, by the way, who falls for him because of his looks even though she's supposedly so beautiful she could stop traffic. Then, without giving her the slightest chance to explain herself, Nick sexually humiliates her and degrades her and rejects her from his life. He threatens to call in his longtime friend's loan on his business if he tries to defend her. Meanwhile she could sue him for his whole company and probably win. Very unlikeable leads. Obviously McNaught's work has improved amazingly because I remain a fan. I just think this one should be put away.
