Ye Gods.

This is about as classic Harlequin trope fest as you can get.

Carrie - I love you!
Luc - let us sleep together!
Old Lady - here's money he doesn't want you.
Carrie - How could I be so naive??

Rinse, wash, repeat. I swear Carrie's feelings back pedal no less then five times because she DOES NOT COMMUNICATE and for a highly renowned mid-20s economics journalist she was awfully uncaring that the King wanted to, ya know, take care of kingdom business.

Introduction of an unknown perfect lookalike? Yep.
"I have always loved you!" Yep.
"You treated me so differently!" Yep.

So you can see, they missed NO TRICKS.

Art was pretty, but the story fell flat since like other Harlequin standard romances it had only the barest outline for the setting and little to no real embellishment of characters.

Marriage of convenience story between heroine (Lissa) who lost her sister, and hero (Joel) who lost his brother, (both in a plane accident) for the sake of the late couple’s orphaned children. I really enjoyed this story. I liked Joel, he was romantic, kind, thoughtful, and caring to the children. I also liked Lissa, who was wrongfully labelled promiscuous some years ago from her parents (which Joel wrongfully believed) after she was caught in a compromising situation with a boy at a party. But all the misunderstandings are cleared up by the end of the book.

Another lovely read by Penny Jordan.

Mistress to Her Husband
3 Stars

Arriving at work one morning, Kate Vincent is shocked to learn that her new boss in none other than Sean Howard, her ex-husband and the man who broke her heart. Sean is just as surprised, but soon comes to realize that his love for Kate has never died, and one touch is all it takes for their passion to be re-ignited. Can their renewed connection withstand the secrets of the past?

Despite the trappings of the 21st century and a more risqué writing style, the characters and storyline are still typical of a 1980s category romance replete with familiar tropes such as the forced seduction and secret baby.

Kate is a proud and independent single mother, nothing new in this day and age, yet she is constantly being chastised by others for her lifestyle, and feels guilty for not being a stay-at-home mom. Seriously?! The book was originally published in 2004, so why has the author reverted to outdated concepts of a woman’s place in society?

Sean is also a throwback to the 1980s borderline abusive and judgmental hero. His actions, both past and present, are inexcusable and one never gets the impression that he truly regrets his behavior. That said, his interactions with little Ollie are sweet and his willingness to love and accept a child he believes is another man’s son is one of his more redeeming qualities.

The book’s main saving grace is the chemistry between Kate and Sean, which is rather steamy for this genre.

All in all, not a bad read despite its shortcomings and the terrible title, which is completely irrelevant to the plot.
