Jennie Lucas's parents owned a bookstore and she grew up surrounded by books, dreaming about faraway lands. At twenty-two she met her future husband and after their marriage, she graduated from university with a degree in English. She started writ We want your feedback!
He had a strange accent, the flat vowels of an American punctuated with something more exotic—the rolling Rs of a Spaniard. Who was this man? He was more than a mere brigand. The thought frightened her. A generous offer, the brigand said. He reached into the back seat, grabbing her shoulders. Tamsin screamed, kicking and clawing at his face. She only screamed and kicked harder. One of her shoes slammed hard against his groin. Cursing, he restrained her wrists with one hand.
Reaching into his pocket, he pulled out a white cloth and pressed it against her mouth. He was drugging her! The air tasted sickly sweet through the cloth. She took another breath, and the desert horizon started to spin before it all went black. She opened her eyes slowly.
Her head pounded.
She could hear the lapping of water, the creaking of wood, the caw of seagulls overhead. Sitting up straight in bed, she pulled the luxurious cotton sheets away from her body.
She was wearing her see-through white lace bra and panties—her wedding-night lingerie—and nothing else. She yanked the sheets up to her chin. A handsome stranger was leaning against the doorway. He was tall, broad-shouldered and olive-skinned, with short, wavy dark hair.
He wore a crisp white shirt and dark pants that molded to his muscular body. That cruel, sensual mouth. Most of all, those dark, cold eyes. Where am I? She had a hazy memory of being on a helicopter and then driven through the streets of Tangiers. What did you do with Camilla and Hatima? He stepped into the cabin, his gray eyes alight with malignant hatred as he looked at her.
That was exactly what she was trying not to think about. Not just for herself but for ten-year-old Nicole, who was still held hostage in Tarfaya, depending on her to get through this.
Did you kidnap them as well? Where have you taken me? Have you sent a ransom note to the Sheikh? He took a step closer to the bed. His whole body was muscular and taut beneath his fine clothes, as if only sheer will kept him from grabbing her. Well, yes, even she could have guessed that much. She glanced through the port window. The sun was just starting to set, trailing a pathway of crimson and orange across the water.
They were out on the open sea, she thought, where no one would hear her scream. No matter what the tabloids seemed to believe, nothing about her was special. And her family had nothing he could want.
Tasmin pressed her shaking hands against the sheet to hide their tremor. Bullies lived to control, to inspire terror.
The only way to survive was to respond with defiance. What do you want with me? He sat on the edge of the bed and reached to caress her cheek.
She shivered at his brief touch. Up close, he was even more handsome. Dark and dangerous, he emanated power. Her fingers clutched the sheet between them like a shield. Nicole , she thought. Remember Nicole. She would never forgive their half-brother for that.
God, she hated Sheldon, she hated Camilla, she despised everyone who hurt innocent, helpless people in pursuit of their own selfish desires. Like the man in front of her now. She narrowed her eyes. And take me back to Morocco so I can be married. But, almost as quickly as the expression had appeared, it was gone. Agree to some hairbrained scheme to marry some old rich Sheikh who may have killed his ex-wife with the promise that afterwards he would allow the sister to live with her.
In non-bizzaro world, hopefully the answer is A. But in crazy Harlequin Presents Romanclandia, we go w So if you found out your brother who is the legal guardian of your younger sister had stolen her inheritance and left her home alone and hungry do you: But in crazy Harlequin Presents Romanclandia, we go with option B of course. So to add to the WTFery, the heroine is kidnapped by our revenge-driven Spanish hero who is going to use her to get revenge against her brother.
He takes her to his home in Madrid where he is overcome with the lust for her sexy bod but he knows she is a slut because he saw her pictured in the tabloids with men we all know how reliable tabloids are - they were even her reasoning for why the courts wouldn't give her custody since I am sure judges read Star magazine a lot.
So the first night she is at his house, she is desperate to escape to "save" her sister. Somehow she and the hero get down to some sexing. Because having a hymen keeps you from ever lying, stealing or doing wrong.
Oh Dios Mio does he feel bad the Dios Mio is added for your pleasure since I had to read it multiple times. Then she tries to escape to meet her abusive nasty Sheiky prospective husband but the hero catches her and she goes back to his hacienda. The next day she starts to worry about the most important thing in this situation - she might fall in love!
I know if I had been kidnapped after almost being forced to marry some nasty old dude and my sister was god-knows-where I would totally be worried about falling in love with the sexy ass Spanish guy I gave my treasured V-card to the day we met when he kidnapped me. Totally makes sense here in bizzaro world. Then next we have the hero propose a good ol' HP standby - a marriage of convenience. They will act in love, the paparazzi will take pictures then they will marry and get custody of the young sister!
Because again - the courts really read the gossip rags so they will know the couple is in love. The story merrily chugs along toward the marriage of convenience but comes to an abrupt halt when the heroine dared to say the big bad "I love you" the three most important words in HP Romancelandia. Then the hero pushes her away for her own good of course because he is not a good person. Then we get to another hilarious part when we finally learn what the revenge was about - her brother stole something from his father years ago.
No not money or a wife or something - the formula for an anti aging creme!!! Of course there is the requisite happy ending where the hero learns the error of his revenge-seeking ways and goes to the heroine.
I was bothered with the fact her brother got away with stealing the young sister's money and child neglect, almost forcing the heroine to marry someone, slapping the heroine and stealing the formula - then the heroine says she forgives him so it's okay since he won't head the company anymore. No, the guy should have been in jail.
Also the young sister is merely a plot device since we never even meet her. Sooo, as you can tell this book did not work for me. The writing was stilted, it's full of short sentences that come off as amateur writing.
The plot is full of WTFery which I can handle in a good HP but this one was not written well enough for me to download into the craziness. View all 20 comments.

Or one child, at least her sister, Nicole. Unfortunately, some stranger named Marcos kidnaps Tamsin on the day of her wedding to get revenge on both her family AND her fiancee.
We have Revenge by using the innocent female as collatoral damage. We have the Glorification of Virginity.
And this was just in the first pages. If you love these old creaky classic tropes, this one is for you! View all 8 comments. In this book, Marcos is out to destroy the people he feels are responsible for his family's death. Kidnapping Tasmin Winter is the beginning of his plan. Tamsin is marrying a sheikh in order to protect her baby sister. Yes, Marcos did take her virginity and then realized that he was wrong about her, which is common in HP's, but I liked the way the rest of the story went after that scene.
Tamsin does try to escape after their night together but is caught again by Marcos. Of course, right at that In this book, Marcos is out to destroy the people he feels are responsible for his family's death. Of course, right at that time her sheikh fiancee comes to get her after she called him from a stolen cell phone with guards and guns.
Marcos realizes they can't get out and he wants her to run and save herself. I thought that was sweet. They of course are rescued and the rest of the book continues with Marcos and Tamsin having a whirlwind love affair still all about the revenge on the sheikh that will lead to marriage so they can get custody of her younger sister. The time Marcos and Tamsin spend together is sweet and one scene is pretty hot.
I liked that Tamsin fell in love with Marcos and kept pushing him to give up his revenge, that she loved him and just wanted to be with him.
We all know it is a happily ever after so he does give up his revenge. One big complain is that there is no epilogue. I would've liked to see Tamsin reunite with her little sister. View all 10 comments. I don't really know what to say about this book. It was full of typical HP melodrama. Don't look at motivations too closely or you'll see right through them.
There was kidnapping, and virginity and bad reputations built on tabloid rumors, poorly conceived revenge, medieval escape tunnels etc. The basic ingredients.
