Here is a link to the breakup list.http listovative.com top 10 ultimate breakup cliches list Raoul bluntly lays it out that he is built for bigger things she ll be better off without him, blah, blah, blah Okay, yeah guy Sadly, this conversation rings a littlerealistic than is comfortable in a Harlequin which makes it all theinfuriating and insulting.Sarah takes it on the chin and tosses his luggage out Actually she places it carefully out, but you can t have everything I don t think I have to tell you what little souvenir she brings home from Africa Flash to five years later She s scrubbing a floor and he walks by Ouch Not how you want to meet your ex dreamboat Raoul is horrified to find out how low Sarah has dropped since they parted Not a teacher, but a lowly drudge The drop to lowly cleaner drudge is one trope I seriously dislike and has been done to death This is where R cements his reputation as one of the most arrogant and insensitive heroes in Harley land He assumes she left her studies for another guy He initially refuses to believe he is the father He is, in general, a serious ass hat.The road to insta Daddyhood is a little rockier for R than most Harley land heroes, but he perseveres Sarah is grateful that she has someone to lighten her load and has to continuously remind herself what a callous cad R was in the face of all his six foot plus golden lusciousness She actually looks forward to seeking out her real dream man which insults the pants of Raoul Boxing her once again into a corner, Raoul railroads her into a marriage so he can keep tabs on their son and keep her in his bed She caves, of course, but this time she caves sexually rather than emotionally Guess who gets his feelings hurt being used for his body Let s all wipe a tear for the poor sensitive alpha male.Bottom line, I did not enjoy this so for me it would bea two star I have a hard time with his callous dismissal of her emotions as well as the fact that she is abandoned Unlike most arrogant Harley H s, he knows she is not a gold digging, manipulative, birth control destroying witch, but he has sex with her anyway However, reviewing this for other, I think a lot of people will enjoy the angst and the eensy bit of change that Raoul exhibits.I have noticed that Cathy Williams heroines are in serious need of better birth control Even among Harlequins they have a higher incidence of pregnancy, and her heroes are muchlikely to abandon the innocents the seduce

    A total lost of time I hated the characters, she was spineless, he was a loathsome pig, and the whole story could have been enjoyable without them.

I don t know if you ve done the conference room as yet, but if you have then you ve made a very poor job of it There are ring marks on the table, and two champagne glasses are still there on the bookshelf The woman s voice was icy cold and imperious Reluctantly Sarah raised her eyes, travelling the length of a very tall, very thin, very blonde woman in her thirties From behind her she could hear the man pressing for the lift. I haven t got to the conference room yet, Sarah mumbled She prayed that the woman wouldn t see fit to lodge a complaint She needed this job The hours suited her, and it was well paid for what it was Included in the package was the cost of a taxi to and from her house to the bank How many cleaning jobs would ever have included thatWell, I m relieved to hear itFor God s sake, Louisa, let the woman do her job It s nearly ten, and I can do without spending the rest of the evening here Sarah heard that voice the voice that had haunted her for the past five years and her mind went a complete blank Then it was immediately kick started, papering over the similarities of tone Because there was no way that Raoul Sinclair could be the man behind her Raoul Sinclair was just a horrible, youthful mistake that was now in the past.And yet..Obeying some kind of primitive instinct to match a face to that remarkable voice, Sarah turned around and in that instant she was skewered to the spot by the same bitter chocolate eyes that had taken up residence in her head five years ago and stubbornly refused to budge She half stood, swayed.The last thing she heard before she fainted was the woman saying, in a shrill, ringing voice, Oh, for God s sake, that s the last thing we need She came to slowly As her eyelids fluttered open she knew, in a fuddled way, that she really didn t want to wake up She wanted to stay in her peaceful faint.She had been carried into an office and was now on a long, low sofa which she recognised as the one in Mr Verrier s office She tried to struggle upright and Raoul came into her line of vision, taller than she remembered, but just as breathtakingly beautiful She had never seen him in anything dressier than a pair of jeans and an old tee shirt, and she was slowly trying to match up the Raoul she had known with this man kneeling over her, who looked every inch the billionaire he had once laughingly informed her he would be. Here drink thisI don t want to drink anything What are you doing here Am I seeing things You can t be hereFunny, but I was thinking the very same thing Raoul had only now recovered his equilibrium The second his eyes had locked onto hers he had been plunged into instant flashback, and carrying her into the office had reawakened a tide of feeling which he had assumed to have been completely exorcised He remembered the smell of her and the feel of her as though it had been yesterday How was that possible When so much had happened in the intervening years Sarah was fighting to steady herself She couldn t believe her eyes It was just so weird that she had to bite back the desire to burst into hysterical, incredulous laughter. What are you doing here, Sarah Hell you ve changedI know She was suddenly conscious of the sight she must make, scrawny and hollow cheeked and wearing her overalls I have, haven t I She nervously fingered the checked overall and knew that she was shaking Things haven t worked out quite as I d planned She made a feeble attempt to stand up, and collapsed back down onto the sofa.In truth, Raoul was horrified at what he saw Where was the bright eyed, laughing girl he had knownI have to go I have to finish the cleaning, Raoul IYou re not finishing anything Not just at the moment When was the last time you ate anything You look as though you could be blown away by a gust of wind And cleaning Now you re doing cleaning jobs to earn money He vaulted to his feet and began pacing the floor He could scarcely credit that she was lying on the sofa in this office Accustomed to eliminating any unwelcome emotions and reactions as being surplus to his finely tuned and highly controlled way of life, he found that he couldn t control the bombardment of questions racing through his brain Nor could he rein in the flood of unwanted memories that continued to besiege him from every angle.Sarah was possibly the very last woman with whom he had had a perfectly natural relationship She represented a vision of himself as a free man, with one foot on the ladder but no steps actually yet taken Was that why the impact of seeing her again now was so powerfulI never meant to end up like this, Sarah whispered, as the full impact of their unexpected meeting began to take shape. But you have How What happened to you Did you decide that you preferred cleaning floors to teachingOf course I didn t Sarah burst out sharply She dragged herself into an upright position on the sofa and was confronted with the unflattering sight of her sturdy work shoes and thick, black woollen tights. Did you ever make it to university Raoul demanded As she had struggled to sit up his eyes had moved of their own volition to the swing of her breasts under the hideous checked overall. I I left the compound two weeks after you left Her strained green eyes made her look so young and vulnerable that sudden guilt penetrated the armour of his formidable self control.In five years Raoul had fulfilled every promise he had made to himself as a boy Equipped with his impressive qualifications, he had landed his first job on the trading floor at the Stock Exchange, where his genius for making money had very quickly catapulted him upwards Where colleagues had conferred, he d operated solely on his own, and in the jungle arena of the money making markets it hadn t been long before he d emerged as having a killer streak that could make grown men quake in their shoes.Raoul barely noticed Money, for him, equated with freedom He would be reliant on no one Within three years he had accumulated sufficient wealth to begin the process of acquisition, and every acquisition had been bigger andimpressive than the one before Guilt had played no part in his meteoric upward climb, and he had had no use for it.Now, however, he felt it sink its teeth in, and he shoved his fingers through his hair.Sarah followed the gesture which was so typically him You ve had your hair cut, she said, flushing at the inanity of her observation, and Raoul offered her a crooked half smile. I discovered that shoulder length hair didn t go with the image Now, of course, I could grow it down to my waist and no one would dare say a word, but my days of long hair are well and truly over Just as she was, she thought She belonged to those days that were well and truly over except they weren t, were they She knew that there were things that needed to be said, but it was a conversation she d never expected to have, and now that it was staring her in the face she just wanted to delay its onset for as long as possible. You must be pleased Sarah stared down at her feet and sensed him walk towards her until his shadow joined her feet When he sat down next to her, her whole body stiffened in alarm because even through the nightmare of her situation, and the pain and misery of how their relationship had ended, her body was still stirring into life and reacting to his proximity You were always so determined she continued. In this life it s the
