the start was good, very promising n promised some gr8 angst but sara spoilt dat when she confessed derek was not her bf n was actually gay now come 2 nick..what kind of ass was dat he actually thought fucking sara mindless wud help her learn abt men abt the real world wud be 4 her own good it was pathetic, it was just an excuse 2 satisfy his rampant lust.. The Guardian s Forbidden Mistress is the 18th stand alone romance novel by Australian author, Miranda Lee Sarah Steinway has been in love with Nick Coleman since she was eight and her father employed him as a chauffeur Nick has been attracted to Sarah since she appeared in a tiny bikini on her sixteenth birthday, but, of course, he can t act on the attraction because, as her guardian, he promised her father on his deathbed he would protect her And while he is now Sydney s most handsome and eligible billionaire, she needs protecting from Nick most of all Nick s parade of beautiful women has always irritated Sarah, and he puts all her male admirers through the third degree, but this Christmas, she plans to catch his eye herself Nick is not all that likeable Sarah is OK, but the best character is gay Derek There are a few hot sex scenes, but this is not Miranda Lee s best effort. OK, this is the 3rd boring ho hum HP I ve read this week and it did not hold my interest where is the tension and the angst Sorry, but I m going back to Betty Neels again She knew how to write. There s a weird little thing that niggles at me about Harlequin MillsBoons, which is the use of the word female where woman would have been better, IMO Did woman get over used and have to be retired, or something I have no idea whether it s an editorial decision or whether authors have just all decided to do it for themselves, because it s pretty consistent across the HMB books I ve read, this strange, almost clinical female where the word woman would have done To the point where it even crops up in dialogue, though I m sure noone on earth ever says because you re a female or us females , etc.Anyway, I think it s strange, and it bothers me, and sometimes it even takes me out of the story completely.But back to this book if you don t find ward guardian sexual dynamics creepy, and you re prepared not to be disgusted at the lengths of effort and even deception our heroine will go to in order to capture her guardian s attention, and you don t want too much angsting about before the sexy bits or even afterwards, to be frank this book should deliver.My ex library Australian edition also had a short story by Cathy Williams at the back, which I liked better than the novel itself, although it still had some questionable elements hard as nails secretary goes on a work trip to a tropical island with her movie star sexy boss, who puts the moves on her. He Couldn T Resist Her InnocenceNick Coleman Was One Of Sydney S Most Eligible Billionaires Love Em And Leave Em That Was Nick S Mantra But He Couldn T Do That To Sarah He Had Promised He Would Act As Her Guardian And Protect Her Yet He Wanted Her, Badly Sarah Was Soon To Claim Her InheritanceShe D Be A Sitting Duck To Predators Looking For A Rich, Innocent Girl Perhaps It Was Nick S Responsibility To Personally Teach Her How Wicked And Seductive A Man Could Be It was an okay read I started reading around Christmas, but after half of the story I lost my interest and started to read something else, and after 1 month I read it again till the end this time I m not blaming the story, it was all on my mood I enjoyed it, it was kinda meh and the ending was kinda rushed in my opinion. La verdad, leer que la raz n del H para no involucrarse con la h es su juventud e inocencia y luego leerla a ella hablando de que ha tenido amantes Sus anteriores amantes Plural pues como que queda un poco est pido la excusa que da la autora. I called him a Bastard at one stage in the story Still not sure about him I think my favourite person in the book was her gay gym trainer. Plot a bit of a slow burner 2.5 Unimpressed StarsThis one did not do it for me I couldn t relate to the Hh I found the story superficial with no real depth to it The H was the guardian to the h He lusted after her since she was 16 mind you, he s many many years older than she is He restrained himself until right before her 25th birthday and then decided to have a dirty affair with her There wasn t ever a real feeling that these two really loved each other The H is a whore and the h is an idiot They were just as shallow as their story and perfect for each other This isn t one I would revisit in the future.
