Ivor s uilt and he just put his foot in his mouthYup you read that correctly He was married twenty years before meeting the heroine when she herself was just a baby That is UITE a ap so if that ives you the cringes stay away Otherwise enjoy a very readable humorous swoon worthy romance I am a huge fan of Helen Brooks and she is almost always an automatic buy for me I find that she really pens a beautiful story and writes such delightful characters I think I enjoy her work so much because I find that she steps out of the stereotypical mold and creates real people who fall in love and find their way towards each other However I didn t find that to be the case with this book The story line was enjoyable but the characters fell far short of expectation They were like the typical HP mold with uncontrollable passions towards people you would typically hate and anatomical descriptions of body parts on fire that were rather sillyMaybe I am just too old to remember but I honestly can t ever recall my nipples standing at attention when I ot close to a ood looking uyTook a little bit
