He saves her from a bad situation not really knowing her and ends up bringing her home to stay with him (of course he's rich & this is 1 of his homes). The more he sees the more he wants her and is determined to have her at whatever the cost. This book has alot of depth besides the usual hot & heavy sex scenes. Really good story.

I have really enjoyed Emma Holly's books in the past, but this was very disappointing. I wanted to like the heroine, but she wasn't very likeable. I don't generally expect fantastic plots in erotica, but the plot in this book was very weak and all over the place.

Emma Holly is a great writer. This story was hard for me to take because the heroine was such a B. Still the character development and relationships were unique and interesting. Men loving a bad seed because she is irresistable sexually is just not my kind of story I guess. 3 stars.

This was an interesting diversion for Ms. Holly; I don't know if I like this book or not. Yes, there is plenty of sex, graphically written and very explicit, as we have come to expect from this author. However, she does forget to fill us in on a point or two - ie. why would this filthy rich, successful Japanese-American businessman become so obsessed with this flakey, self-destructive heroine? She is not a very likable character. (I suppose we should be sympathetic towards her because of her traumatic childhood.)She attempts to self-destruct, and we watch in fascination, like watching a train wreck, but fate steps in and hands her a second chance. Hmmmm. Verrrrry interesting.

A heartwrenching tale of how self-hatred is so destructive to one's relationships and the redeeming power of love. One of Emma Holly's more serious works (with the requisite steaminess still there).
