This is a fair book. I like Julie Garwood so much that I had no problem reading the book. However, it is not as good as many of her books I have read. I have read many from the same time period (1986 or so) and they were good so I only surmise this is just one that is not that great. The story had some good parts and its plot is good too. But, for some reason, I just did not get the same ferve reading this one as I did all Garwood's others I have read. A gal brought to England to meet the father she has not seen since she was 4 to take her rightful place now that he feels she will be safe from an event from 14 years ago. A man who is arogant (normal for these stories - but he is a bit too harsh), falls for her and is determined to break her spirit. Now many of the period peices are such, but he really seems determined to break her spirit - while in others the heros seem to accept the spirit of the woman while trying to change her and allowing some to stay. This man wants abject obediance and he is a trifle too jealous and distrustful even without her giving him reason. I like the stories wherein the man realizes his failing and tries to overcome or does his deeds while realizing while he is doing it - not just doing it for the nature that he is who he is and because he can and because he wants everything his way. He did not appear to have a spoiled childhood and that is why it seems so bad he is so snooty as an adult. He is too wrapped in his title and nobility that is not typically seen in these books. He does have alterior motives of keeping her safe which eases a bit - but a reader is not really informed of that until after he has made some God-awful request or demand. I don't know. I just thought it was a "fair" reading.
