Marriage of Convenience~ HIS~ 3 Stars ~OK....
PLOT: Rome Mathews lost his wife Diana and sons in horrific accident. He seems incapable of showing love or affection. The lovely Sarah was best friends to Diana but held her feelings about Rome to herself. She loves him. When passion flares Rome proposes a marriage of convenience HIS.
Rome is a remote and distant man resulting from the death of his family. His sex appeal is there but he lacks warmth. Lovely Blonde Sarah responds to a moment of passion and Rome found out too late she WAS a virgin. He proposes marriage......plenty of hot passionate SEX. but he will not sleep in her bed and NO children is his "offer". Sarah is desperate for him and accepts this very one sided marriage offer. An unplanned Baby is added to the story and Sarah must make a decision of the choice between her child or husband Rome. ***The story is worth the wait for the end. **
This is a SAD plot. The story is a good but not what we 'except' from Linda Howard. The hero is not likeable and the heroine is a "door mat'. This is VERY early novel by Howard. This story IS worth the listen for the ending. But we find we have to over come our dislike of the hero most of the novel. I give the Story 3 stars~ and Amy Landon the reader 4 STARS~ she did a very good job. Over all 3 stars~ clearly not Howards best book.
One more thought what is with the AWEFUL cover artwork on this audiobook? Sarah was a white blonde beauty. This shows a overly made up brunette. JUST put a hunky guy on it next time Dreamscape. also try Loving Evangeline soon to be released by Dreamscape Media.

A bit painful
The story is well written, just the stuff Sarah puts up with is just painful to hear and experience. I don't know if she is really strong or really pitiful. Rome is not a likable guy, he's not even described as cute, I had a hard time figuring out why she is so in love with this guy. His story is terrible and heartbreaking, but just couldn't find what she saw in him.
