    1. The heroine in this one really needed therapy. Despite her Great, Big, Traumatic Past (a car crash killed her fiance and her sister-in-law, left her brother paralyzed and her niece an orphan), I could not make myself like her as she was so mean to everyone around her and the type of person who seems to wallow in self-pity.She resented her brother his ability to healthily move on. She was jealous of his budding romance with their nice neighbour, callously accusing him of trying to replace his dea [...]

    2. Re Too Short A Blessing - PJ brings us a story about second loves and moving on from loss, though that isn't the big surprise of this book. This book probably has the most volatile ratings of all PJ's work. There doesn't seem to be much middle ground on this one, it is either loved or hated. Mainly cause PJ frankly and specifically addresses the issue of a pregnancy termination for the h - as far as I can tell this is the ONLY book in HPlandia that has an h actually decide upon that course of ac [...]

    3. Sara and Jonas really go through the emotional wringer in this afraid-to-love romance. Jonas is immediately smitten with Sara at their first meeting and thereafter only wants to love her— which includes giving her some mighty good lovin' too. LOL. Unfortunately, their path to happiness is clouded by Sara's deep fear of potentially losing someone she loves. In response, Sara constantly rejects and hurts Jonas. (view spoiler)[For example, she tells him she'll only ever love her dead fiancée. (h [...]

    4. I loved the angst but Sara was so cruel to Jonas. The death of her fiancé crippled her emotions and I understand that she was afraid of loving and losing again but poor Jonas didn't deserve her bitter words and rejection.

    6. This was a fairly intense read with Jonas pushing Sara with the strong physical attraction right from the first meeting. Sara is still grieving the loss of her fiance 18 months ago in an accident that crippled her brother and killed her sister-in-law.She has made Sam, and his daughter Carly, the centre of her world while clinging to her memories of Rick.Jonas confronts her immediately because she feels the strong attraction but she fights it, using her memories of Rick as a barrier to admitting [...]

    7. I love reading Penny Jordan's books, but unfortunately this one was just a miss for me ----------------Such a weird turn of events. We've got a male widower (heroine's brother)  married for 6 or so years,  quick to move on 18 months  after the death of his wife.  Then we've got our heroine,  who's fiance died but is living the nun life.  It doesn't matter that her fiance  was experienced physically and sexually before he proposed to her,  she chose to completely be null and void to love [...]

    9. this was one where heroine picked on my nerves! sara was so cruel to jonas; like saying she was pretending he was her dead fiance when they made love. how horrible! in jonas's place, i wud have been too disgusted to take her back when she got pregnant. some things are unforgivable and kill love!

    10. The only part I did not like was the way she acted after they made love and that she was going to have an abortion. Wft? Why? She could have had the baby no problem her brother was awesome and the father was a prince at first anyways. Good read.

    11. I didn't think it was too bad but I really never felt any emotion from the book. I found it kind of bland.
