Melanie has very well captured the goings on of people who are prone to get anxious very easily. People who will sacrifice themselves for those who love and people who will withstand everything to protect those they love. Many poignant moments in the story that made me go awww... But there is one thing I take an exception to. I've come to know that Harlequin names the books and not the authors. What I had an issue with is the title of the book. In my opinion it is degrading Clem in the story to be referred to as a kept woman when she is not one! Apart from that, it's a sweet story.
A sexy take on an enemies to lovers story! Ten years ago, an ugly confrontation happened between Clementine Scott and Alistair Hawthorne that was mostly based on raw emotions and mistaken intentions. She was left with the attitude that all men were horrible and she had no intention of ever having a relationship with one again, especially the arrogant Alistair! Fast forward 10 years and she's approached by a seething Alistair again telling her that her little brother has taken off with his step-sister and she has to help him track them down. She resists having anything to do with him, but he doesn't give her any choice if she wants her brother to be safe. As they spend time together, the true story of what had happened years earlier comes out and they forgive each other for the misunderstanding. They can't resist the attraction that is flaring up between them, so they decide on a a one week fling ... will either of them be able to walk away after just one week?
