The main female was ok and her personal challenges interesting, but her love interest was a bully right from the start. He took obey to a near creepy level.

I had to stop reading this. This is cringe worthy stuff. The main female character in this book has dyslexia, in a time when this was not a recognized disability. Sadly, the author has chosen to have all sorts of insults hurled at this female main character about her hidden disability, even to the point of her fiance calling her stupid. Pretty distasteful stuff and also quite uncomfortable to read. I can't recommend this book. The first two in the series were OK, the second book was borderline for me. The male main characters were bullies in these books; some reviews calling the "alpha males" but I don't see them that way.

If any of my friends dated this guy, I would be sure to point out that he is a verbally abusive bully. Romance novels tend to romanticize the "bad boys" enough without passing a completely disfunctional relationship off as true love. I will never read this author again.

I loved this book! The hero was a turn on, alpha kind of guy, the heroine spunky, funny and loving. The villains were the kind you love to hate. The dialogue was witty, especially the courtroom scene. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I loved this book. Alexander is a hunky, take charge hero who gets sensitized by the end. Victoria is a spunky, brave, kind heroine. She has a secret problem which is used against her by Alexander's evil sister in order to break the marriage. Eventually the truth comes out and all's well that ends well. I smiled, I laughed, I cried. Enjoy!

Victoria Douglas, the heroine and last of the Douglas sisters, is the family wild child. Victoria is funny and kindhearted as well as strongwilled and outspoken. She has a secret, the cause of her problems, that she guards. Victoria is severely dyslexic and hides it from everyone. Only her aunt and sisters know. She feels stupid because no one knew about learning disabilities in those days. If you were unteachqable, you were stupid. Alexander Emerson is a semi-alpha male. He is not as alpha as Prince Rudolf in To Charm a Prince but he is no Alan Alda tyoe sensitive guy, beta boy. He believes what he sees instead of what he feels. He undergoes a tremendous character fchange during the story. Grasso does a great job redeeming him in the end. The story broyught me smiles, laughter and tears. I loved the courtroom scene with Victoria on the witness stand. Grasso continues to bring us thoroughly original characters who grow as peoiple during the story. If you don't like alpha males, then don't buy it but , other than that, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
