love reading these older stories! They do have imaginative, often implausible plots, and a Harlequin Presents always delivers pure fantasy escapism with the requisite happy ending.
I liked this Charlotte Lamb story for all the reasons that it is now non-PC, like the previous reviewer said. I like the hero domineering (but charming), he always seems to be years older than the virgin heroine and is always rich and a womanizer, and usually drives a Ferrari and is obsessively trying to deny is love for the heroine by being mean to her.
Character development and POV of the hero were usually not present in these older Harlequins but there's usually a lot of tension, atmosphere and very inventive plots. Read these older Harlequins written by Charlotte Lamb, Anne Mather and my very favorite-Robyn Donald.
