Probably the best of Rimmer's early Bravo books.
There are a lot of elements here that will be familiar to readers of Category Romances:
Plot - a temporary wedding to satisfy requirements of a will
Hero - tortured, emotionally unavailable, determined to remain unattached
Heroine - a long, unrequited love for the hero
It won't matter. This story still comes across as fresh and unexpected.
I liked the hero well enough, although I found his profession more interesting than his person. (He's a PI, but unlike in most romances, the author does NOT glamorize the work). I LOVED the heroine. She's no martyr, and despite her "doomed" love for the hero, she enjoys people and life in general. Also, the story development was a constant surprise. Certain steps are expected with this plotline, but when you hit what would have been the climax in another's hands, you are only half way through the story with Rimmer.
