Et you go Our marriage is a contract and our commitment to that marriage can be based on nothing less than a lifetimeBut that was bef.

Eh although it did keep my interest enough to finish it it s hard to get really into this kind of older HP The heroine is immature and scheming she d be the evil OW in any modern story And she doesn t really change over the course of the novel the happy ending is basically that her scheming works and she keeps her man The story wasn t boring at all just not very satisfying as a romanceAlso I have to say that as a fantasy I don t really like these older HPs where the hero isn t rich Realism has its place but I don t like stories where the happy ending is that the heroine is a frugal housewife who lives in some nfamiliar pretty The Beast on the Brink uncomfortable place where she knows no one but it s all ok because she has her man Not exactly my fantasy happy ending Ruth met Patrick a scientist working in a remote primitive area in Venezuela while staying at her friend s parents home for the weekend He was the cousin to her friend s father and significantly older than she was She took one look at him and decided that she wanted him Then she did all that she could to gain his attention and to trick him into marrying her against his will After marriage she travelled to Venezuela to be with him and he soon found her out that she lied and tricked him into marriage Understandably he was angry however his treatment of her bordered on cruelty He refused to let her return home and kept her with him to be a whipping boy for his anger It wasn tntil a traumatic event at the end of the book that he realized what he had done and what wage almost lost In spite of my sympathies for her Ruth was damned annoying She acted like a spoiled child who wanted something that she couldn t have and did every sneaky thing she could to get it She annoyed the hell out of me for the first half of the book but then she was forced to grow p and deal with her husband s harsh cruelties That was when I began to sympathize with her I didn t like Patrick for most of the book I felt bad for him at times but he ran so hit and cold that I would have ran away from his bipolar behavior I can t even say he made the book interesting I found Ruth s father and John a helluva lot interesting Still it was a wonderful read As annoyed as I was with the characters I still could not walk away from the story I needed to know what happened and how it all became resolved Well worth the time Patrick had warned her If you marry me there s no going back If you decide you don t like Venezuela I doubt if I could ever bear to let you go Our marriage is a contract and our commitment to that marriage can be based on nothing less than a lifetimeBut that was before he knew that Ruth had tricked him into marrying her had made him feel like a foolNow what future could they possibly have together less Blackmailed into marr. Patrick had warned her If you marry me there's no going back If you decide you don't like Venezuela I doubt if I could ever bear to

That it s full of Venezulan local color which I didn t remember in the slightest bit I thought it took place on a ranch because horseback riding is involvedThe story is that Ruth a rich pampered young woman falls for Patrick who is much older and not into commitment He blows hot and cold at her in an aggravating manner for awhile and finally she takes matters into her own hands and forces him to marry her This made ite an impression on me such a naughty heroine But when Patrick discovers he was tricked naturally all hell breaks loose What happens next is familiar to anyone who reads a lot of Harleuins but I guess it was a first for me and also made ite an impression on my young mindThe book is very old fashioned in tone to the point of being funny a character is aghast that the supposedly pregnant Ruth plans to go swimming but he probably wouldn t have turned a hair if she d had a drink The book also gave me the hard to dislodge idea that view spoilerhorseback riding instant miscarriage And why do women in romances always pass out when miscarrying I wish I could have hide spoiler I enjoyed it First time I read about a rich devious heroine trying to marry poor hero by lying and deceiving him But hey she loved him truly and obsessively so I can t blame her I feel like I read a completely different book from the other reviewers because I felt wow that was an awful story there was nothing likeable about the Hero and they never had one nice moment together in the whole book except in the epiloguewhich to me is too late no romance no communication she tricks him into marrying her he decides never to live with her as a real couplehe never even takes her out on a datehe just wants her to pretend in public they are happy for months then when another man wants to take her out he decides to take her on a picnic bla bla bla stuff happens he never visits her in hospital she leaves hospital in the middle of the night and has to go find him walking home in her bare feet after a miscarriageI think not If I were her I would have gone home with her father a man who flew to her rescue and he wanted to take her home to UK for a breakand start her life again hopefully meet a new guy I d be likeyeah no luggage Dad lets go I just read a few chapter of the book This book is so different from other hon books While most comments criticised the h I rather thought the H was the worst one since he was the mature and older one of the two The much younger h decided to stay away from him after he expressed no further interest in emotional involvement But the old guy gave a different sign and kept go after her every time she tried to stop seeing him She s young and brave He s old weak and foolish He did not deserve her at all I loathe the H than any other brutes in HP. Ore he knew that Ruth had tricked him into marrying her had made him feel like a foolNow what future could they possibly have togethe.
