    Re Echoes of the Past Sally Wentworth does all out OTT wrecki drama and this one is no exception Again we are back to SW s favorite trope of Revenge, but this time it is the H who wants revenge for his own mistake Tho of course Rule 1 it is always the h s fault is heavily emphasized and expounded upon by one of the nastiest, meanest H s HPlandia has seen in a loong time not since the last Margaret Pargeter at least, and none of MP s H EVER used such language The book opens with the h being 19 and working in a casino after her father died and her little brother was born prematurely and blind There is the HP Gold Standard American operation available to help him regain his sight, but the US doesn t take the NHS and so the h and her mother are working themselves to the bone to get the money somehow The h is also casually dating a young nobleman who will be a Duke and his family is extremely worried about the h being a possible future duchess The H is dispatched to set things straight with regards to the h s non status in a future Duke s live and in that classic subtrope of insta love displaced into extreme hostile aggression the H offers the h money to get out of town and sign an agreement not to see the future Duke again.The h, insulted that the H accosted her and then called her a tart and a bargain basement box girl, ...

    I m exhausted I honestly don t know how to rate this one 1 star, 4 star, wimpy average at 3 The hero is a cruel, sadistic, nasty man and not in a good way He says some of the cruelest things I ve read in a Harlequin Purdey, the heroine, is pretty good at dishing it out, but, please girl, why did you fall in love with this guy Purdey is working as a croupier to save up for her little brother s eye surgery, or he ll go blind Apparently medical care IS better in the States as the family needs the surgery available here He Who Must Not Be Named swoops in to save his nephew who has a crush on Purdey who must be a gold digger The slut shaming is almost instantaneous, literally He tries to warn her off which she laughs off then he offers to pay her off Purdey is enraged and outraged and asks for 35,000 pounds which is a lot of money It s an ugly scene as he puts the moves on her and her betraying bodybetrays her It s gross They throw some insults at each other, and he leaves.Three or four years later Purdey has her fancy new degree and is the only woman executive with a hotel group Much is written about the dangers of being a woman in the workplace, and how Purdey will handle a pot...

    4.5 starsThere are asshole heroes and then there are ASSHOLE heroes Jared fits the latter category perfectly He was so mean and rude to Purdey calling her a little bitch, gold digging slut, and con artist not all in one sitting though, thankfully Jared acted like such an ass, but I loved it because I could see how much he wanted Purdey even though he didn t want to Hehe.The two possessed strong chemistry which resulted in some delightful banter Purdey, of course, only responded with antagonism in order to deal with Jared s hostility I loved how she stood up to Jared and gave as good as she got It was impressive because when they had their first confrontation Purdey was only 19 to Jared s 30 31 years of age, a poor nobody to his wealthy and powerful banker essentially I also loved how Purdey held on to her standards by not rea...

    4,5 stars for my deliciously awful hero and sweet heroine who had a backbone and made the jerk grovel little bit.

    Not bad If you re looking for angst, twists and turns with a believable, highly independent, smart heroine with a heart of gold, not to mention an alpha male hero who turns from arrogant asshole to humbled hero, this is the one Couldn t understand what he felt she owed him though Seemed like a sound business arrangement to me he paid her to stop seeing his nephew and that s what she did But writing was good enough for m...

    dats how fairy tales shud be like from rags to riches, the heroine had her brand of magic when jared faulkner proposed her 35000pounds to stop seeing his nephew i remember reading dat book as a teenager but i did not remember the book s name so it was a pleasure to read it again, after like ten years to come back to the story, purdey was stunning and she turned heads wherever she went jared was no exception to this yet, he thought he was different from the other besotted fools bcoz he saw clearly in her game he was harsh, nasty and even brutal towards her but this also hid much suppressed passion these two burned the sheets they had dat kinda chemistry purdey was feisty, she made him sweat, and never gave in willingly to him she actually tamed him as, before finding out the truth, he actually decided to marry her my favourite moment was when he had the guts to ask her price to be his slut and she threw he...
