Childhood romance 3  3

Sharon Wirdnam born in Longon, England, daughter of Donald Llewelyn Wirdnam, grew up near Heathrow Airport. She has been a waitress, a cook, a photographer and a nurse and she drove an ambulance across the Australian desert. Sharon currently lives and works in Winchester and Plymouth. She has a daughter and a son. is a popular British writer of over 100 romance novels published by Mills & Boonsince 1993. Her books regularly top the sales charts for romance fiction on both sides of the Atlantic. about the author::: her own words Sharon Kendrick I was told off as a child for making up stories—little did I know that one day I’d earn my living by writing them! To the horror of my parents, I left school at sixteen and held a bewildering variety of jobs: I was a London DJ (in the now-trendy Primrose Hill), a decorator and a singer. After that I became a cook, a photographer and, eventually, a nurse. I waitressed in the south of France, drove an ambulance in Australia, saw lots of beautiful sights but could never settle down. Everywhere I went I felt like a square peg—until one day I started writing again and then everything just fell into place. I felt like Cinderella must have when the glass slipper fit! Today, I have the best job in the world, writing passionate romances for Harlequin. I like writing stories which are sexy and fast-paced, yet packed full of emotion—stories that readers will identify with, laugh and cry along with. My interests are many and varied—chocolate and music, fresh flowers and bubble baths, films, cooking and trying to keep my home from looking burglarized! Simple pleasures—you can’t beat them! I live in Winchester, one of the most stunning cities in the world, but don’t take my word for it—come see for yourself! I regularly visit London and Paris. Oh, and I love hearing from my readers all over the world…so I think it’s over to you! the plot of the story is quite simple the hero and heroine have known each other for quarter time the heroine has turned into a beautiful woman and now the story short

a bit blind to the situation 3  3

I must say that I was astounded that the hero was able to get so much information on the heroine's fiancee of his sideways woman and dirty dealings with real estate in such a short amount of time but I guess for a sheikh who is protective of a family "friend", one will do what they can in order to protect that friend. However, I also don't blame the heroine for getting mad at the hero, I mean no woman wants that kind of surprise about the man she is marrying, yet she picks herself up and goes searching for a new job (fiancee was also boss). When the heroine tells the hero everything and proceeds to leave, the hero comes up with a job proposal in order to make her stay. Now, here is something that surprised me is that the hero believed that the heroine and the ex-fiancee had slept together, I mean looking at the time and era of when they were, that would have been unlikely. Plus, he stands on an assumption that he made himself, there was no hard evidence from the two people that they were sleeping together. Plus, this is all brought up because his brother (who was being a charming man) was telling her to not telling the "desert hawk" sweep her away. It's from then on, the hero starts taking cold showers. When the heroine comes the hero's country, she finds some things in the society that the women there wish to have and don't wish to be expected to do: they want to go to college and they don't want their expectation to be a mother only. I do love the reason the heroine puts so much effort in to make her job be seen as amazing, so she can show that women are capable of doing just as hard work as the men. Now, here I don't like the hero. First, he brings her to a horse track that will attract foreign visitors and asks for her opinion. When she gives her negative opinion with good reason, he blows up, saying the conversation is over. Suddenly, they have sex and the hero finds out the truth of the heroine's departed innocence and says they will marry. The heroine, distressed from the hero's comment leaves in the car that has her lose points with the staff because women aren't allowed to drive. The heroine then leaves and the hero doesn't come after for a while. They meet and have a civil conversation which leads to the heroine getting her job, at least that's what both the heroine and I thought. Yet, to the hero, it was a marriage proposal. That was a terrible marriage proposal. The ending was okay.
