About the Author
Angela Bissell lives with her husband and one crazy Ragdoll cat in the vibrant harbourside city of Wellington, New Zealand. In her twenties, with a wad of savings and a few meagre possessions, she took off for Europe, backpacking through Egypt, Isrl, Turkey and the Greek Islands before finding her way to London where she settled and worked in a glamorous hotel for several years. Clearly the perfect grounding for her love of Harlequin Presents! Visit her at angelabissell.com.

The writing style does not engage you. When you are reading the most oft used tropes, you hope the author makes it interesting……… unfortunately here it is just plain boring.
Xaviers behaviour with Jordan is overbearing, rude. Jordan's characterization is good, but comes across as weak …(maybe because she is grieving………!?, but it really does not come across that way)
The one star is for getting the part about an adoptee's pain, when they are not accepted by part of the family/soceity. Quite oddly, this is more common among the rich- mainly due to inheritance issues. The non-acceptance is always played out on the child……never in front of the parents. Vicious, wounding words, used slyly. Undermining covertly. It does result in extremes- either the child conforms and tries to be perfect (like in this story) or goes off the rails on the other end of the spectrum. If perfect then it is deemed to be due to good upbringing… and if the other then it is said 'ungrateful, bad blood etc etc. Basically, the adopted child cannot win.
But I digress .....
This one a waste of time and money for me ....
