    Thus was a stomach churning horror venture into a sick, beyond dysfunctional family that has no hope of happiness.Where do I start? How about five years ago, with the spousal approved infidelity of the hero who slept with the heroine without telling her he was married. The h was a working woman in a superficial industry so she must have been experienced, and when I say experienced I mean a bad word.The wonder-wife has been dead all of six months when the H sees the h again at a fashion award show. He wants her for more sex which she's up for as she has the emotional development of a hormonal lovestruck teen which should help her get along with the H's 13 year old daughter. It doesn't. Momentarily her spine and pride resuscitates, and she says no. That's the last we see of any sense of self-respect, of course.My stomach finally gave up the ghost when the hero, the heroine and the 13 year old daughter have it out. Yes, all three of them in a scream and blame fest that will feather the nests of therapists for years. The daughter tells dad to just sleep with his floozy, only she didn't say floozy. In a rage, the heroine screams out that the daughter's darling dead mother gave her father permission to have sex which resulted in the half-brother that never got the love she did. Okay, the daughter is a witch in training, but she is 13.The ED writing team wasn't finished with this snuff romance. Toss in a rescue attempt and a fall that results in temporary blindness and some very unconvincing but convenient I love you's, and its lollipops and roses for these four: hero, heroine, the daughter and plot moppet son.I am pretty gullible and will usually buy even the most foul hero's I love you's, but not here. The H wants sex, and, yipped, did he ever luck out. The woman he lusts and his new heir show up with no effort on his part at all. The h, who just won Australian designer of the year, is lucky enough that he will allow her to continue designing on his remote cattle station living in the house that his dead wife probably decorated. YUCK!I think the heroine's W-T-F expression on the cover says it all.

    Back cover: Outback men live by their own rulesAustralian Designer of the Year! Alida Rose should have felt elated with the recognition. She'd worked hard to achieve such success - it was her future. Gareth Morgan was her past. And yet five years had not diminished the impact of the charismatic man nor the painful memories. A renewed relationship with Gareth was tempting. But this time Alida vowed she'd show this outback man - she'd be as ruthless with him as he'd been with her.Five years before the book took place Alida and Gareth had a fling. Gareth had a wife, Kare, who was very ill. Gareth had loved Kate very much. But Kate had developed MS and she told Gareth that he could seek his sex elsewhere and it wouldn't bother her. Gareth didn't until he laid eyes on Alida. He had wanted her. Kate was dead now and Gareth and Alida run into each other once again.Gareth wants Alida again. He may have not planned to run into her but he wasn't bothered by using the opportunity to his benefit either. When they had originally been together Alida didn't know about Kate. She was away seeking treatment in a hospital. Now Alida wants to hurt Gareth back for the pain that she felt he inflicted on her those five years ago. Alida had fallen for him and she is still nursing some hate towards him. Gareth seemed to believe that since she was in the fashion world that she had loose morals, but he was wrong.They seem set up to have a one night or perhaps a three night four day fling, but Alida backs out at the last minute. She realizes she can't do it because she still loves Gareth, but he doesn't love her. Alida wants more than he is willing to give. She doesn't want Gareth to keep his life, i.e. daughter, separate from any possible relationship that they might have . . . she doesn't want to be just a fling. Gareth eventually gives in and introduces Alida to Stacey, his 12-13 year old daughter with Kate. That whole scene was very entertaining. Stacey is very rude and a bit bratty to Alida. Stacey even says, "She doesn't even fit into our lives. Go to bed with her if you have to, but why should you want me to meet her?" To which Alida wants out of the car and says that Stacey is just like her mother, Kate. Of course Stacey doesn't know about the history between Alida and Gareth. Alida said that Kate didn't mind Gareth treating her like a . . . and neither does his daughter. As long as she is kept separate from their lives. She was tired of being treated like that. The argument goes on further, and yes Stacey is right there during that whole thing. Gareth treated Alida like he was a hitchhiker to her highway and what was one more rider on the fast lane. It escalates further. Until she says, "I have a child, Gareth. . . . son that you fathered on me. But you don't know about him, do you? You didn't care enough to protect me from consequences." After that bombshell they are involved in a minor traffic accident and Alida uses that as her opportunity to escape.She returns home to her parent's house that is a long drive away and where her son is. Gareth and of course Stacey follow. They even manage to beat Alida there.There are very strong emotions involved with these two and it is made a little more difficult because of the children, but they manage. They have to come to learn to depend upon one another and trust each other's hearts with the other. But they all manage and they do get their HEA.

    One of my top re read hands down!! Wished it came on kindle then I would always have my old friend with me. One of Miss Darcy's oldie but so good!! There's angst and chemistry between H and h. H is a tough rich of course and very sexy. He was married when he met h who is an up and coming top designer in Australia. H wife has suffered from MS for long long time and so there was no sex but H was devoted to his wife and stayed true to her even though his wife told him to find someone to relieve that part since she can't do it anymore. h had a designer show near his homestead and the attraction was combustible which both got burned in the end. Him from guilt and h from the consequences of the affair. They met up later by this time H wife has passed away from her illness and therein the author spun her story with she's famous for. Love Love these oldies from Ms Darcy. Tissues needed.

    This is a good book from the husband & wife who are Emma Darcy. A widower meets by chance a woman whom he had an affair with during his late wife's terminal illness. She actually sanctioned him to have a sexual relationship since she couldn't. Call me nuts, but I would NEVER do that! Anyway, the woman was a fashion designer who was doing a photo shoot on his Outback station. Five years pass & his daughter sees the woman's picture in the newspaper & her father is stunned when he hears the name. He attends an awards party for Australian Designer of the Year9the woman wins top prize) & he approaches her with renewing their affair. Things don't go as he planned. He doesn't know he has an illegitimate 4 year old son. His daughter is decidedly hostile when Dad introduces them. Things start to happen fairly quickly after that. If you are an Emma Darcy fan, this book is for you.
