Had one thing it didn’t need 4  4

This was a real touching story, and JAB hit the nail on the head when describing the secretary. When the hero fired the woman, he suggested a mental health check once she got home. It was sound advice. So what was the one thing I didn’t think this story needed? BBV, that is Bed Before Vows, and it’s not just my prudish opinion. I really think changing it up would not only have given their marriage a better chance (based on RL statistics), but it would have been more romantic. I say this because when the heroine was seventeen, her introduction to physical intimacy was done all wrong - no love, no consent, no regard (I wonder if the novel included if the scumbag was caught and punished, because the manga doesn’t say). I really wish the hero, after he realized her past and that she had overcome her phobia of a man’s touch (incredibly miraculous recovery, I have to say), had decided to prove how much he cherished her by doing everything RIGHT, and saving her first (consenting) time for after their vows. Buuuuuut, of course, that’s not what happened. So, was it a good story otherwise? Yeah. It was. Good enough to include a tissue alert in the case of the sympathetic / empathetic hearts - especially the scene when she recounts giving her newborn daughter up to the agency. It was short, but it was powerful (the artist did a great job of show don’t tell)! I think part of what made this story good was many elements were believable, the flow was great and the art exceptional. When all those qualities come together, it’s hard not to get a good read. I just wish their intimacy had come after the vows.

Goooood! 4  4

I’m going to do this chronologically. We have the heroine who grew up in a hard home from a mother who abandoned her at a young age to an alcoholic father who barely cared about her. When she was seventeen, she was raped by a neighbor and got pregnant from the incident. She was just a kid who didn’t know what to do and thought the best option for the baby was to give it up for adoption. It was so heartbreaking for the girl to be raped then make one of the hardest decision as a parent: give your child up, so they can have a better life. After she gave up the baby, she fell into depression and didn’t know how to pull herself out. Then a miracle came, the woman who adopted her daughter sent a letter with pictures of the little baby. The woman thanked her for giving them a chance to be parents and wanted to keep this communication going. Seeing that she made the right decision motivated the heroine into fighting for a better life. She worked through school, college, and got a stable job, while exchanging letters with her daughter’s mom. Eight to nine years later, the heroine receives word that her daughter’s parents died in an accident. She learns the daughter is living with her uncle and takes a chance to see if her little girl is alright. Before she can declare who she is, the hero assumes she’s here for the nanny position. Their interview is unusual but the heroine is hired for the job and sets out to help the hero build a stronger relationship with his niece. The hero opens up his fragile relationship with his niece stems from objecting his sister’s decision to adopt because he was adopted himself. The guy has issues about being adopted made him feel he didn’t entirely belong to the family, despite his adopted family loved him so much and were happy to him in their lives. Right off the bat, the hero falls for the heroine hard and goes on to woo and seduce the thing. The heroine resists for three things: 1) couldn’t touch men after her rape *although, that was destroyed by the hero in the early pages with his kiss* 2) the hidden connection with his niece 3) the hero’s secretary. She’s Annie Wilkes from “Misery” or at least would have been one of the top villainesses if you asked for the top ten evil women in Lifetime thriller movies. Her first introduction to the heroine was taking one of her art tools to slash across the heroine’s canvas as a warning not to get in her way from claiming the hero. When I first read it, I was thinking, “Hide all the sharp objects in the House!! We have a maniac on the premise!!”. The heroine tries to follow through but the hero keeps on pressing the heroine to be with him. The heroine deals with the woman’s snide remarks and stuff towards but I liked it how she put her foot down once she found out the woman targeted the little girl too. The daughter confesses right after she started living with the hero, the woman would always come by and out of earshot of the hero, telling the little girl how the hero was going to send her away, etc. She confronts the hero who says he did ask the little girl but was happy when she responded that she wanted to stay with him. Their conversation opens up about the hero not being with any of the women to the heroine opening herself to the hero about being raped. The hero is very respectful but he asks if she’s going to let fear keep her from finding happiness. His words encourage the heroine to take the next step and that step is coitus. Next, they talk to the niece who tells them about the secretary. Afterwards, they fire the secretary who keeps insisting it was all for the hero’s good. The woman runs out but not before getting her revenge. She runs to the hero’s home, trashes the heroine’s things for anything to use and finds the adoption papers. She tells the daughter, using a couple of twisted lies and it causes the daughter to run away. When they find out the daughter is missing, the heroine confesses her connection to the hero. The hero processes the information as best as he can, resulting in him believing the heroine’s side. They find the little girl who flinches at the heroine’s touch. The heroine takes it as a sign they can’t be together and leaves in the dark of night. They find her a month later at her art exhibition. He asks the heroine to marry him, the daughter comes in to clarify she wants the heroine in her life. The heroine says yes and two months later, they’re married in a chapel. It’s a very happy ending indeed.

Mother love 5  5

Any mother will do anything to make sure that her daughter happiness the story revolves around the hero and heroine where she is far away from her daughter 50 reaches her anyway...Cathy Williams was born in the island of Trinidad, the West Indies. She is a great believer in the power of perseverance as she had never written anything before (apart from school essays a lifetime ago!) and from the starting point of zero has now fulfilled her ambition to pursue this most enjoyable of careers. She has been writing Mills & Boon romances since 1990. Her hopes are to continue writing romantic fiction and providing those eternal tales of love and romance for which, she feels, we all strive. She derives inspiration from the hot, lazy tropical island of Trinidad, from the peaceful countryside of middle England and of course from her many friends who are a rich source of plots and are particularly garrulous when it comes to describing Mills & Boon heroes. It would seem, from their complaints that tall, dark and charismatic men are way too few and far between . She loves the beautiful Warwickshire countryside, where she lives with her husband and three children, Charlotte, Olivia and Emma and writing is hard pressed to find a moment's free time in between the millions of household chores good book I enjoyed it
