    1. The idiot let her fiance (not the hero) control everything about her including her food intake so that she turns into an emaciated almost-skeleton. When she asks him if he would still love her if she was plump, the guy tells her quite bluntly NO! He loves her the way she is because she is HIS creation.Now, granted this two day old, dried up piece of turd is not the hero but the villainous OM of the piece, but reviews indicate the waste of hair spray heroine still pines after him for the entire l [...]


    2. An out of work actress who has a nerve disease and a neurologist H ,,,,,For an RL/RL this was different on many counts as her Hs are usually in love with the devious glamorous ow while the h plays second fiddle…So here we have a totally besotted sensitive hero (love at first sight kinds) who turns his whole life around for the h (taking up a job in the Middle east so that he can cook up the excuse to the h abt needing a wife asap to appease his host’s sensitivites).Then a nice understanding [...]


    3. My rating is 2.5 stars - it was OK and the stars are more for the H. The back cover of the book tells you what the plot is. This book was written in 1980 and unfortunately for me it didn't have enough drama to keep my interest riveted. There were no punishing kisses or mean, conniving OWs nothing of the sort. There wasn't even any flower poetry of the union of the H/h just hints leading to that for the HEA. I want to read the poor H finally getting his! ~_~Surprisingly, we the readers get to rea [...]


    4. A quick fast read about a marriage of convenience which happens to be my least favorite trope. But I thought this one was well done.The heroine is a little slow on the uptake and I thought that brought the story down a couple of stars for me.However, the hero is wonderful and the book has a surprisingly kind and generous OW. It was nice to see how the dynamics of an OW with great integrity played out. It was a nice change of pace.


    5. Well done marriage of convenience story. There was some POV from the hero so you knew he was in love with her from the beginning.


    6. 4 Stars! ~ This is a treat of a read! I had forgotten how captivating the Presents from the 80's were. In this lovestory, our heroine Juliet has developed an incurable illness that causes her legs to weaken and no longer able to support her. This brings her to our hero, Damon, the neurosurgeon who diagnoses her. Refreshing is that we, the reader, are privy to Damon's thoughts and see that he has fallen in love with Juliet from first sight. He concocts a marriage of convenience in the hopes that [...]



    7. read it in a go. Knew from the start whats going to happen, but still it wasn't a boring read. it was pretty clean and clear. gorgeous actress, mean fiance, goes after someone else, actress meets a doctor who falls for her at first sight, and talks her into a temporary marriage, they get no idea of each others feelings and separate, later a friend re-unites them. a typical story.


    8. loved it ! though i wish it had been more passionate. they shared a more or less platonic relationship n juliet was rather cold, not what i wud call a warm n emphatic person. it's no wonder perry escaped while he cud lol! poor damon was so besotted, he was stuck wid her! he wud do anythg, tolerate anythg just 2 be wid her.


    9. One of those marriages of convenience plots, but this was generally more "plausible" than most. Certainly both characters were likeable enough, no sign of severe Alpha leanings on the hero's part, or waif-like cowering from the heroine.



    10. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was well written, has a good story line,and interesting and believable characters. I enjoyed the passages written from Damon's point of view.
