She still clung to a love from the pastWhen Imogen's fiance died she needed someone to help soothe away her sudden pain and loneliness someone to care about her someone to Re To the Victor the Spoils this one is a highly debatable reconciliation story the h at the beginning of this one is separated from the H and plans on asking for a divorce The debatable part is that the h left because one of his co workers sent her a hotel receipt and a malicious note indicating that the woman had been fulfilling the boudoir bouncing role for the H since the h was so lacking in bedroom skills The H did not bother to deny it and thus we have the conundrum of did the H cheat or not JA would have us believe he did not however it is VERY feasible that he actually did and is lying about it The reason it becomes important in this book is because the H at the time really had no reason to cheat on the h if he did well it pretty much destroys the entire premise of the book and changes the HEA into a truly sad and horrific ending The story goes like this the h was engaged four or five years earlier to a man who died and the H was essentially the guy who stepped in to help her through her grief and then coerced her into marriage Who does that you might ask Well this h has a dead mum from a young age a diplomat father who it later turns out isn't her father and has always been resentfully distant and the only thing she ever did right in his eyes was marry the H The H presented it as a business marriage the h wanted to open a spa and does so with her brother the H wanted a wife with upper echelon social connections and a good hostess and a companion and he had a thing for the h so he got her to marry him by convincing her that if she was never going to love again she could still have a marriage and a family with someone compatible The only problem was the H is in finance himself and uite wealthy but he was adamantly opposed to the h's brother handling the financial side of her business When the H left on the fatal business trip there had been some problems The h wasn't getting preggers the h was fighting to keep her brother involved in her company because he was her only close family and the H kept taunting her about her love for her dead fiance Now I did not get the impression that the h was mooning over the dead guy in fact she herself states that she realized she did not still love him after a year The h was actually falling in love with the H but he just kept doing exactly the wrong thing at the wrong time to build a marriage with his taunts and nit picking and the h has her standards for decent treatement the H was failing them dismally Then she finds out about the affair the H just says nothing that really mattered happened and the h knows an excrement excuse when she hears it The H also says they will talk later but the h walked out on him so later never came When the book opens the h is convinced the H had an affair with one of his staffers how else would the woman know such intimate details about the h and H's personal life if the H hadn't been doing a little shoulder sobbing of how his wife wasn't understanding him Apparently that letter was one humdinger of a malicious attack The h has decided it is time to get a divorce and plans on meeting the H to discuss it There is also seems to be a cash flow issue with her business the brother handles all the businesses' accounts and the h is pretty clueless that bad doings are happening The H initially refuses a divorce but then backs off to think about it He finally figures out 18 months after the h has left him that he needs to be doing some explainin and he needs to sort this affair situation out toot sweet or the h will really leave him permanently The H is stalling for time but it doesn't help when the h shows up at the H's office to talk to him and who should she run into but the OW who is still nastily malicious and there is a confrontation the H is also not in the office so the h leavesThe H pulls into the parking lot just as the h is leaving and there are a few words exchanged when the h swears come Hades or high water she is getting a divorce and she drives off She is driving home when she gets hit by a lorry and the H is called in because she is pretty critical with a head injury The H arranges for the h to stay with him and offers her a deal he will sort out her business finances and give her a loan if she will play the wife bit until he signs a big new contract The h who has a bad concussion agrees to temporarily step in until the contract signing and then they part for good The h moves to the H's house to recuperate and she notices the decor has been changed the H claims there was a robbery with vandalism but the h suspects the H's girlfriend has bee making home improvementsWhile the h recuperates several things happen The brother is caught out by the h for embezzling and the h has to remove him from the company the H becomes a director in the h's company and the h finds out her father hates her because she the product of an affair between her mother and another man The h also finds an earring that she assumes belongs to the H's girlfriend and there is some juicy h torment as she imagines the H and his girlfriend sleeping in the same bed she is currently occupying Essentially the h feels the H married her because of her social status and her ability to mix well with the business types since the H also claims she is better in bed than his girlfriend that can be considered a bonus There are several near seduction and attempted forced seduction moments before the h finally succumbs to the lurve club mojo She is still having headaches and passing out on occasion but she is determined to get this finished and get on with her life She and the H spend some time tormenting each other with taunts of each having slept with someone else the h actually hasn't she just wants a win in an argument with the H but the H is still looking pretty dubious Then the h thinks she is preggers and since she loves the H really she thinks a baby will give her the upper hand in the war against the girlfriend The H is pleased too so it seems the HP preggerness water is working to good effect Except the h isn't pregnant it was a false alarm and the h is essentially feeling the aftereffects of a major head injury So the h takes off to the family weekend cabin at first she thinks about lurvin it up a lot and lying to the H but her innate honour kicks in and when the H hunts her down some hours later she tells him that she isn't pregnant but she wanted to be The H leaps all over that admission and mutual avowals of love occur The H explains that he was obsessed with the h even when she was with her first fiance and he did not care what he had to do to get her he loves her and he is keeping her He claims he never slept with the OW and that she left his company over a year earlier the letter and the hotel receipt were sent to the h because the H turned the lady down when she offered a taste of clubin' delites When the h met her at his office that last time the woman was just dropping off paperwork and the earring the h found was supposedly part of set for her but there was a home burglary and one of the earrings was lost and the H had a new one made According to the H he never wanted anyone but the h when he met her The h is overjoyed and they set about making little HPlandians before the roaring fire for the HEA It is conceivable that the H was telling the truth JA did give enough H actions at various points to show that he was than a little insane about the h But then there is the overwhelming evidence and the H's own words to cast considerable doubt on what he later claims he meant at end of the book How did the OW know just what to write to the h to stir up so much trouble why wasn't she dismissed the DAY the h got that letter and told the H about it Why is the OW continually compared to the h and in all ways except for boudoir bouncing found to be the better woman The H claims he was just enjoying how upset the h got but srsly what lovestruck fool goes about wooing his girl by taunting her with another woman On the other hand this is HPLandia and tormenting h's with OW by the H is practically a universal pasttime the H's just have to do it cause OW comparisons to the h flavor packets are freely circulated in the water supply just like those preggerness boosting colloids the water pumps are continually pumping in So really this one is totally up to reader discretion as to what they believe I tend to give JA the benefit of the doubt tho that is a bit dubious after just finishing a Patricia Wilson with the exact same type of H but in PW's case there is NO Doubt the H is completely and utterly uxorious about his h Then again it is JA's freshmen HPlandia voyage and so perhaps she deserves a bit of slack and the H's word he did not cheat should be taken verbatim Either way whatever you chose to believe this one is a pretty decent time filler so seek it out if you're curious and then let us know what you think this book really isn't a bad first effort Poetenleben to a

    Re To the Victor the Spoils this one is a highly debatable reconciliation story the h at the beginning of this one is separated from the H and plans on asking for a divorce The debatable part is that the h left because one of his co workers sent her a hotel receipt and a malicious note indicating that the woman had been fulfilling the boudoir bouncing role for the H since the h was so lacking in bedroom skills The H did not bother to deny it and thus we have the conundrum of did the H cheat or not JA would have us believe he did not however it is VERY feasible that he actually did and is lying about it The reason it becomes important in this book is because the H at the time really had no reason to cheat on the h if he did well it pretty much destroys the entire premise of the book and changes the HEA into a truly sad and horrific ending The story goes like this the h was engaged four or five years earlier to a man who died and the H was essentially the guy who stepped in to help her through her grief and then coerced her into marriage Who does that? you might ask Well this h has a dead mum from a young age a diplomat father who it later turns out isn't her father and has always been resentfully distant and the only thing she ever did right in his eyes was marry the H The H presented it as a business marriage the h wanted to open a spa and does so with her brother the H wanted a wife with upper echelon social connections and a good hostess and a companion and he had a thing for the h so he got her to marry him by convincing her that if she was never going to love again she could still have a marriage and a family with someone compatible The only problem was the H is in finance himself and uite wealthy but he was adamantly opposed to the h's brother handling the financial side of her business When the H left on the fatal business trip there had been some problems The h wasn't getting preggers the h was fighting to keep her brother involved in her company

letter and the hotel receipt were sent to the h because the H turned the lady down when she offered a taste of clubin' delites When the h met her at his office that last time the woman was just dropping off paperwork and the earring the h found was supposedly part of set for her but there was a home burglary and one of the earrings was lost and the H had a new one made According to the H he never wanted anyone but the h when he met her The h is overjoyed and they set about making little HPlandians before the roaring fire for the HEA It is conceivable that the H was telling the truth JA did give enough H actions at various points to show that he was than a little insane about the h But then there is the overwhelming evidence and the H's own words to cast considerable doubt on what he later claims he meant at end of the book How did the OW know just what to write to the h to stir up so much trouble why wasn't she dismissed the DAY the h got that letter and told the H about it? Why is the OW continually compared to the h and in all ways except for boudoir bouncing found to be the better woman? The H claims he was just enjoying how upset the h got but srsly what lovestruck fool goes about wooing his girl by taunting her with another woman? On the other hand this is HPLandia and tormenting h's with OW by the H is practically a universal pasttime the H's just have to do it cause OW comparisons to the h flavor packets are freely circulated in the water supply just like those preggerness boosting colloids the water pumps are continually pumping in So really this one is totally up to reader discretion as to what they believe I tend to give JA the benefit of the doubt tho that is a bit dubious after just finishing a Patricia Wilson with the exact same type of H but in PW's case there is NO Doubt the H is completely and utterly uxorious about his h Then again it is JA's freshmen HPlandia voyage and so perhaps she deserves a bit of slack and the H's word he did not cheat should be taken verbatim Either way whatever you chose to believe this one is a pretty decent time filler so seek it out if you're curious and then let us know what you think this book really isn't a bad first effort

    Dull protagonists and a lack of emotional depth do absolutely nothing to enliven this story about an estranged couple who supposedly married for reasons other than love then unraveled over jealousy he of her dead fiancé she of a predatory employee with whom he shared a latent attraction The plot is kept unnecessarily busy with the heroine's failing business untrustworthy brother injuries and view spoilerphantom hide spoiler
