Description du produit
Quatrième de couverture
But rules were meant to be broken... In the beginning it was simple-the facades, the distance-until Max found his loyalties put to the ultimate test and Claire dared to let down her defenses. Now it was more than a game of winners and losers. Now they were playing for the highest stakes of all. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

First, it all happened too fast, it was hard to find depth in the characters when they would change their mind twenty times in a week. I'm all in for fast-finding-your-true-love stories, but this one was so far out to be believable.
Second, they treated marriage and having children at the same level as choosing the color of a eye shadow. Like it would be something you would decide within a minute or two.
Third, it was weird seeing the characters go from happy, to sad, to trusting, to anger, to love. For this reason I didn't feel the emotions as I would in another book. I'm talking about that moment you feel for the character, laugh or cry. It wasn't there for me.
I didn't like it, but that doesn't mean you won't, everyone has different tastes.

I read this book before I read Sarah's child, which is the first in the series. This book is a stand alone, but Max is a central character in Sarah's child and I think it would help knowing more about him when reading this book. In any case, I read the two books out of order, but loved them both.
Max Conroy, a suave British businessman is sent to Houston to ferret out information from Claire Westerbrook, the secretary to the President of Bronson Alloys. Max's boss wants to launch a take over of Bronson Alloys but he needs more information before he buys up more stock and he trusts Max's killer instincts and his natural charm and control with women.
Max meets Claire at a party and is surprised that Claire is not immediately enamored with him. Claire is a divorcee, from a socially prominent family and she is extremely introverted, so much so that at times she is almost boring compared to the ultra dynamic Max who sees her as a challenge not only in his job but also in the bedroom. He is attracted to Claire and soon resents his mission but not so much that he is honest with Claire. He is so charming knowledgeable about the ways of women that Claire barely stands a chance against his seduction.
Claire lowers her guard and she finds herself falling in love with Max, something she never anticipated. She is on the road to heart ache though and not just because Max is dishonest about his work but also his family is aristocratic and Claire has no desire for the perceived perfection she believes is essential to be a countess.
Claire vacillates between liking and then distancing herself from Max. Claire is a private person and not one to share her thoughts with Max or family. She is not a charismatic personality and overall I found her character rather bland. Max on the other hand is bold and daring and barely understands the word no. He wears down Claire's resistance; he is persistent in his pursuit. This is an older novel and it reads like one with a too dominant male, still Linda Howard writes with emotion and her hero is certainly not boring. I am giving this tale three stars, it is passionate but the heroine is a little too reserved.
