I loved this book, and mostly for the reasons that previous reviewers didn't. I SO enjoyed a modern-day heroine, Elizabeth, who was far from perfect. In historical novels heroines marry for money all the time--to save their family name or fortune, or to provide a home for a sibling or child. Ms. Robards not only moved this theme to contemporary life, she changed the outcome 180 degrees! Surprise! And the hero loves her truly, madly, deeply. For me and him, scrappy survivors are just as endearing in the 20th century as they are in the 19th. In a historical, a "capital error," that wrongheaded life choice that drives the story, is magically resolved by the rich and powerful or by the hand of fate. Remember Mr. Rochester telling Jane Eyre about his "capital error?" He made a raw deal in his marriage to a madwoman, and tried to fix it by tricking Jane into a bogus wedding. Yet we still love Eddie Rochester--that devilish wannabe bigamist, who is one of the premier romantic figures in literature, right up there with Mr. Darcy. Remember Fitzwilliam Darcy, the supercilious snob who insulted the delightful Elizabeth Bennet and her entire family, and punctured Jane's romance? He's still a rock star. Elizabeth Perkins is the female version, a protagonist whose ambition and deep-seated longing lead her into a huge mistake. She discovers, as many a foolish young person does, that she's not getting what she thought she wanted, and what she wanted is not worth doing what she has to do for it. She doesn't play the game like some suffering Sally who's lousy with self-sacrifice-she is playing to win. When the hand of fate steps in, the consequences are enormous and harrowing. So I like this survivor, just as I love Eddie and Fitz. As in real life, the unworthy sometimes get a chance to become worthy. And they make such good reading.

From the other reviews of this book I almost didn't read it, however, I was pleasantly surprised! It was very good and the plot was very fast paced. I would recommend this book!

The character is extremely unlikeable. She's brash, selfish, snobby and is best described as a gold-digger. She cares only about herself. I didn't want her to win his heart. And I couldn't, for the life of me, understand what her appeal was to any of the characters who liked her in the book.

While I normally love Ms. Robards' books and read them fiendishly, I couldn't sympathize with Ronnie, the heroine. She didn't seem to have any redeeming qualities; she was self-absorbed caring not a wit for her husband, Diane, or even Tom. The only thing that made this book interesting was the underlying suspense.

This book is the equivalent of a large decongestant, hard to swallow and sleep inducing. the dialogue, characters and situations remind me of a bad soap opera going even more wrong. i'll never get those four hours back....

From the Cover, the book didn't look all that interesting, but once I started to read it, I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this book to anyone.

I FOUND IT VERY DIFFICULT TO LIKE EITHER TOM OR RONNIE THE MAIN CHARACTERS OF THIS BOOK. BOTH LACKED MORAL VALUES. THE PLOT WAS INTERESTING AND HELD MY ATTENTION DESPITE THE CHARACTERS NOT BECAUSE OF THEM

I just loved Ms. Robards's stories. This one was no exception. The plot was fast-paced and the characters were enjoyable. It kept readers on and on. I certainly could not put it down until the very last page. A must read!

I read lots of Sandra Brown, Rachel Gibson, Linda Howard, Nora Roberts, ect. If you are a fan of romance then I am positive you will love this book. Very romantic, and sexy. You really fall in love with the characters. Go out and buy this book.
