I really liked this book. I loved Hardy but was somewhat conflicted over Haven. I just wasn't sure if her victim image was accurate. However, when you recall that she grew up with parents who were too into themselves to instill self-confidence, self-worth or give her love, it helps you to understand how she could fall for a narcisstic husband the first time around. Her mother tried to make her into what she thought she should be by degrading her to the point she controlled her which would explain how easily Haven fell into the victim role with Nick. Her father was too busy making money and trying to make wifey happy to help Haven develop these strengths or to even show he loved her. He even held her inheritance over her head to try to make her do what he wanted. After I thought about this part of her story, I realized I have known people like her and she became much more realistic to me. I really appreciate the way Kleypas wrote this real life situation into the book and admire Haven for overcoming the abuse and becoming a strong individual who could love again. Great story!
