In fact, it was Leonie’s twin sister who was head over heels in love with Hal, and to spare her unnecessary pain, Leonie was ready to go to any lengths to keep the young lovers together – even if it meant beguiling and bewitching the intimidating Hawk.

First of all there was the ick feeling I got when I discovered both father and son were in love mortiimer twin sisters, slightly older than the son and witchchil years younger than the dad.
But the story was good and Leonie is a great woman even if at the beginning she seemed to be a bit This book was not bad at all but it had something I didn’t like it so much.
But the story was good and Leonie is a great woman even if at the beginning she seemed to be a bit strange, ready to give up her daughter like she wouldn’t care, but when I discovered her past I better understood her reasons.

Besides this book is full of things, drugs, kidnap, domestic violence, blackmail, sometimes it was like those south-american telenovelas where something is always happening and I was almost expected that someone suddenly would stand up saying ” I am your mother!
Whoa this book was much twistier than expected! Much longer and containing quite a few more plot threads than your usual Harlequin novel. Tragic past, stalkerific ex, kidnapped baby, secretly insane person, drug addict, it had a little of everything! A goulash of OTT drama ingredients, yet the overall impression was kinda bland and mild for all that.
I still liked it but I wouldn’t say it was mind-blowingly unforgettable. You get mortkmer of the Hero’s point-of-view than the heroine’s, interestingly Whoa this book was much twistier than expected! You get more of the Hero’s point-of-view than the heroine’s, interestingly enough. The thunderclap realization of love strikes him pretty early, too, witchhild don’t worry there are plenty of momentous events that keep the crazy train chugging away.
I have to say, while the ensuing disasters, revelations, and twists were entertaining enough, the romance was pretty unexciting after the initial tension of will-they-get-together was settled so early. So it’s already complicated she’ll be her own sister’s stepmother-in-law!
She has problems loving cadole new baby because she already lost a baby son when mortiimer ex-husband brutally raped her late in her previous pregnancy. Speaking of whom, the scumbag ex is blackmailing her for money by threatening witchcjild claim parentage of her carple bastard daughter. So it’s all knotted up already but just for fun let’s throw in some unspeakably horrible trauma from her past: Her mother screamed for a long time before becoming a dead body.
Their father talked himself hoarse for three hours trying to comfort them before dying himself.
Their beloved family dog was in the car and he was splattered in front of them too. So the girls were trapped in the car with the dead bodies of their parents and dog for hours before finally being found.
Then, because this is not tragic enough, they got split up afterwards and raised with different sets of relatives. So both twins have some baggage, and her sister gets her own small plot thread. So does the H’s personal assistant and his son, as well as the heroine’s housekeeper.
You get a storyline! And you get a storyline! The big bump in the road happens when the new baby daughter gets kidnapped, and that was pretty exciting! The twist of whodunnit was actually fairly unexpected. You’ll never guess who the kidnapper is! You’ll totally guess because I said you’ll never guess! I won’t confirm it though. Okay fine, it was the secretary who turns out to be far from the competent, sophisticated lady she seems.
In fact she’s a psycho obsessed lunatic who thinks of the H as hers. If this had been a 5-star read I wouldn’t have told you because I’d want you to read it yourself, but it wasn’t that great so if you don’t want to read it I didn’t want you to eternally wonder.
I enjoyed this re-read a couple of decades after reading it for the first time. A case in point, Hawk Sinclair, a hero who was flawed and quite miserable for most of the book, but, once he got over himself and decided to try to redeem himself became a memorable hero that I have looked for in romances I have read since.
The hero I enjoyed this re-read a couple of decades after reading it for the first time. The heroine was self-sacrificing to the extreme, surely no woman exists who is such a paragon, but if Hawk loved her the way he did, I have to give it to her, for being so perfect for him. Overall, I loved this book, it could not have been more packed with plots layered over other plots, so many potential villains yet such obvious ones too.
Of course the worst thing that can happen, did happen, with baby Holly being kidnapped by a mental case, perhaps the biggest reason why as a reader I will never read such a plot device in my books again. Not if I know that they are there. I loved CM’s writing when I was younger, she was daring for me, would I read her books now?
Probably not, but I would recommmend this read to anyone who likes to explore the world of romances as they used to be written not so very long ago. View all 7 comments. Jun 01, LLC rated it liked it Shelves: I liked all the characters in this book but it had too much going on. There was a wicked ex-husband, there was blackmail, a kidnapping, and a secondary character with a drug addiction.
The h had six cats all named for flowers which was fun. The relationships are all a little confusing and wierd. Leonie and Laura are identical twin sisters. Laura marries Hal and Leonie marries Hawk who is Hal’s father. That makes Leonie a step mother-in-law to her twin sister.
Jun 04, Tia rated it liked it. The heroine met the hero when he thought she was her twin sister, Laura. The hero wanted to prevent Laura from marrying his younger son. When he found out they were twins and the heroine was the ‘kooky’ sister, he, for some unknown reason was obsessed with the thought of her. So later that night he went back and had a one night affair with her.
Fast forward a little over nine months and the hero comes back into the heroines life. Her sister is going to marry his son and when he sees and infant, h The heroine met the hero when he thought she was her twin sister, Laura. Her sister is going to marry his son and when he sees and infant, he automatically assumes that the infant is his sons and Laura’s.
When in fact the infant is actually his and the heroines. Once he learns the truth, he is determined to marry her. For her has decided he has loved her and always will love her. As the hero learns about the heroines past and who she is as a person, he decides to make a plan to have her. He wants marriage and his daughter Holly, wrapped in a neat package.
What he doesn’t suspect is blackmail, a kidnapping, a drug addict and a whole lot of in between! Well I need to say for Carole Mortimer book, overall it wasn’t that amazing. The characters were great and the storyline was alright but it felt like a really choppy story to me. I mean, yes the author does go back and shape up the story so we understand but that’s what made it sloppy to me.
It could of come out in the right order in which it happened but it didn’t. I just found it bothered me to no end.

Witchcild read it like a spoof and I caught myself giggling numerous times while reading the book: The original title to this is “Witchild”,exactly how the hero sees cwrole heroine as. A Witchild that has enslaved him and made him fight for her caroole their journey from engagement to marriage. I really liked the supporting characters too. I absolutely love this book!!!!!!!

I wish Harlequin would release this digitally so I can always have it on the Kindle. An author I have always loved. Lots of twists and turns. May 05, Tatiana Stefan rated it really liked it Shelves:
