I love chantelle shaw's writing but when she flops, she deserves it. This book was quite unbelievable. The hero runs a multi-million corporation but he cannot communicate with his wife. The whole basis of their marriage is sex because he obviously cannot verbalize anything without be condescending and a total jerk. He marries the heroine, screws the living daylight out of her and then treats her like a child. She verbalizes that his PA and ex sister in law is causing her grief - he ignores her. She becomes pregnant and he virtually ignores her and the sex stops completely. He spends more time with the sister in law. He lies to her about his delay in coming back in time and she sees him go into his SIL home, spends the night and misses her sonogram without calling. She finally gets a backbone and leaves. Our hero, the genius who owns a multi million dollar corporation cannot find her for 18 months. I do not think he looked that much. He finally finds out where she is after getting divorce papers from her, and he is mad. He uses his power to force her and baby to his castle in France and dictates for the rest of the book. No car, no freedom, SIL is living in castle, everytime she speaks- he forces her to submit to his expert "love"making. He calls her a liar, he puts her down for her clothing, he forgets to tell her that he was married before, he forbids her to work and he does it out of love! I have never disliked a character in a romance like this idiot. The ending is rushed, and he finds out SIL lied, and eats crow by "what else" making her eyes pop out by giving her more orgasms and she forgives him because he tells her that he loves her. If that is love, I rather become a nun.
