Rating 2.5 stars
I found the book to be too dry. I didn't find any affinity with the characters and no chemistry. The sudden loves of word didn't ring true to me. The heroine is the hero's scrub nurse and secretly in love with him but she's middle class and he comes from a rich family. Turns out he is not the natural son of his father but he still plans to marry well and at the age of 40, so their kiss shocks him and he tries to play it down, she resigns, he chases her down and they have sex. They fight again once she confesses she was a virgin. I never really felt the book was trying to forge a connection with the reader. Barbara Boswell has written much better books.
