Laura met Jason at a friends party, they got acquainted and then got married but Jason was hiding things from Laura Laura assumed the worse when Jason removed money from their joint account He figured he had a mistress and when she asked him straight out to tell her the truth, he said nothing Laura ended up pregnant and then miscarrying their baby After that Laura s uncle called her home to recover Once she was there her Uncle gave her falsified documents stating false truths about Jason So Laura filed for divorce.Three years later and Jason is back in her life, trying to get her back but Laura still believes he has a mistress with children Laura doesn t give Jason a chance and starts dating another guy from around her city, so to get back at her Jason starts spending time with her cousin Making it look better then what it actually was Once Laura finds out the truth, Jason and her sort out their problems and decide to get married again.Overall the book wasn t too special but it was well written and chalked full of suspicions and drama, which made it a bit better. BIG FAT SPOILER Eh This one had a hero who kept certain secrets to the detriment of his relationship But, of course, he had no problem spouting his asking someone else to marry him, further perpetuating the misunderstanding However, our heroine was faulted for being mistrustful I hate this troupe. I equally love and hate the way Sara Craven writes, or least in her older stories such as this one The romantic tension is really strong in this book, but, I really hated the way the hero acted towards the heroine when he first refused to let her leave in the flashback part, and then his words to her when he picks her up from the side of the road I hate that he showed no remorse for what he did to her and that he thought her being faced with that type of behaviour again, was because her lonesomeness made it happen I also hate how the heroine never mentioned this first instance again, nor that it was allowed to just fade into a past plot point. such a frustrating read and all it would have taken was the H telling her the truth He caused 3 years of pain because he felt she didnt ask the right questions or trust him Why should she trust him He couldnt even tell her the truth This is a dumb book. After reading Boogenhagen s review, I realize I need to introduce myself to the group My Name is St Margarets and I am an Angst Junkie Hi, St Margarets So confession time I went on an angst bender with this book It contains in no particular order An orphaned heroine who is Cinderella in her uncle s houseA miscarriageAn uncontested divorceA mistress with two childrenA betraying uncleA crazed mother in lawA scheming cousinA disapproving housekeeperA rape attempt by the OM who thinks divorcees are easy preyA hero who didn t tell her the truthThreats of revengeA hero house hunting with other womenAs you can see, this one has everything Hero was a total stinker when they married, he brought all the angst on himself sorry, hero Heroine needs to cut her evil uncle and cousin out of her life pronto And only visit crazy mother in law on holidays.The hero does a decent grovel and the heroine realizes she wasn t aggressive enough three years before I believed in their HEA because angst bender hiccup Not bad This had a medium amount of angst and I have to say, the H scared me a little He came across as a really harsh man albeit, a harsh man who really loved his wife The h, was your typical mousy lady who got taken in by the guiles of her kindly relatives But what was really interesting was the way the H treated the wannabe OW He blew cold and then he blew lukewarm he was never really hot and I can t quite fathom why she would ever think he was interested in her after the constant snubs and dictatorial attitude the H Jason submitted her to Laura the h, was suitably bitter but unable to resist her husband all the same And they finally managed to get their happily ever after after much conflict and bickering Good enough.
