Re Executive Lady Sophie Weston kicks off her HPlandia tour with a wrecky angstfest that left even a hard core HP traveler like me a bit disconcerted Soph can definitely write the pain I am still uncertain if I believe the resolution She did pick up HPlandia rule 13 pretty fast tho The the H forcibly seduces the h the greater his love I say that as a warning that I had forgotten about this book the H rapesforcibly seduces the h in practically every love scene but one in the book And there are 5 or 6 of them Which is lot considering the page count and most HP s at this time average two or threeThe story starts with the h and H meeting as head of their respective companies to work out a merger The h is a highly reserved lady who conceals a LOT of pain and hurt behind a pleasant but distant facade She works as a director of the family glass making firm and with her Uncle in an uncertain state of health she pretty much runs it The h is an orphan who has very bad memories of her parents and their very destructive fights They died when she was 11 and she went to live with her mother s brother and his family Which consists of a dithering but some times vituperative aunt who spoils their only son rotten The cousin is a ne er do well playboy and his selfish and thoughtless actions have put the company in financial danger The H wants a merger with the h s company and he and the h are very politely hostile to each other The h doesn t like the H because he reminds her of the only man she has ever loved who grudgingly proposed marriage to get her uncle to support him and then tried to rape her She managed to get away but she was traumatized by the experience and since then has avoided dating and relationships Her cousin introduced the ex to her and was angry when she dumped him the cousin the ex and the ex s sister who is also the H s former or maybe current girlfriend promptly dismiss her as frigid and cold and spread rumors that she only works at the firm to get some of the family money The h s grandfather started the firm the Uncle was getting to old to run it and the cousin was worthless I felt that the reality was the Uncle and the aunt put a lot of pressure on the h to stay with the firm and run it to their benefit as the uncle knew his son couldn t do it The Aunt and Uncle emotionally blackmail and manipulate the h a lot in this one This is a common occurrence in Sophie books They force her into doing things because they took her in but it is never openly stated that she owes them it is all very subtle and underhanded and it leaves the h feeling very lonely sad and confused She is loyal tho so she does her best Her parents were poor her father was a struggling musician who just got his big break when he died and her mum was an abusive angry spoilt woman who felt cheated of her rightful place as a pampered rich girl which should explain a lot about the Uncle and his family As a result of all the traumas the h is very distant with most people She is very kind however and does a really good job running the company Sophie usually has her ladies practicing a very successful career The H and she skirmish He disparages her in French because he thinks she doesn t know it and then tries it on with her later on The h feels a physical attraction but the H is really nasty about it and she feels humiliated Then the cousin runs his mouth off to the papers The company s shares are falling and the Uncle asks the h to marry the H at his suggestion to stop the rumors and allow the merger they both need to go through The h is very angry and tells the uncle off but she does feel a duty to her employee s and her Uncle and aunt and so tries to negotiate a marriage in name only The H will be in France and she will be in London and they will live separate lives until the companies are stable and then get divorcedThe H makes some disparaging remarks but doesn t comment on the terms and so the h thinks he is agreeing The H is very uncommunicative and even so as the wedding approaches He supposedly looks pained or weary at times but since there is no dialog we don t know why He was probably constipated or somethingThe h s ex gets invited to the engagement party by the h s cousin the ex tries to assault the h and the H threatens him pretty effectively Then the ex s OW sister shows up hangs all over the H and demands an invite to the wedding and makes some dubious comments along with the h s cousin The h likes the cousin she is pretty blind to how damaging he is his parents have always doted on him and made sure the h did too In fact the aunt lies to the H about how in love the h is with the cousin to manipulate the H into keeping the worthless cousin employed The h isn t in love with the cousin at all she sees him as a younger troublesome brother that she tries to help keep him out of mischiefThe wedding finally arrives and the h is looking worse all the time The H takes her to France insists she stay buried in the countryside for a month and then later that night wakes the h up from sleeping and violently rapes her She was a virgin and she passes out from the assault The next morning the H is sorta sorry for hurting her but doesn t comprehend the scope He seduces her and then takes off for three days The h thinks she in love with the H but she is not happy about it the H is very distant mocking and has her imprisoned in his home He is freuently gone coming back only to force sex on her and force a physical response When he is gone he is photographed with the OW all over him The h figures she set the terms of separate lives so she doesn t say anything but she is visibly deteriorating and she physically flinches when the H comes near her Every time they go to bed she winds up crying and the H either leaves or falls asleep He has a reputation for destroying things and people that defy him and he is doing the same to her The H and h get into a wreck while he is yelling at her about knowing French and not telling him and the h is in hospital There h gets a reprieve as the staff sees all is not well and they keep the H away Then the h returns to the house buries herself in painting and walks and avoids the H except for sex whenever possible She is still flinching when ever he comes near The H asks her about it and she asks him how long he is going to continue raping her He calls her a bratty child and stalks off She can t leave because she is still recovering and he took her passport She decides to claim her passport is lost and get a new one from the British consulate the H gives it back but invites the OW another man and the h s cousin The OW is all over the H again he ignores or belittles the h and doesn t sleep in his room The cousin tells the h that the OM is there to seduce her while the H gets his thing on with the OW The cousin and the OW have both been stirring the pot with rumor and innuendo The h confronts the H and asks if the OM is there for her The H tells her that he isn t surprised she is resistant but the OM is getting excited about it The h then hits the H hard enough to make him stumble and leaves the next daySix weeks later the h is back in London finalizing up the merger details and is going to leave for a new job The uncle tries to manipulate her into seeing the H She tells him off and warns him if he continues she will leave right away The H finally confronts her in her office bullies and blackmails her some and then hauls her off to a country hotelHe doesn t understand why the marriage can t work He accuses her of an affair with her cousin which she firmly denies Then she lays into him about his girlfriend which he doesn t deny and the OM setup The OM was supposedly there to paint her portrait but if that was the case why didn t the H introduce him as a painter It was fairly obvious the h had no clue who he was instead the H makes her go off with him so I did wonder what was really going on The H realizes that the h fears him apparently his OW pointed it out He seems to figure out that yep if a woman is fighting you off and saying no it isn t true love The h starts to cry and the H says he has never seen her cry forgetting every time they had sex I suppose or maybe he just did not care to notice He apologizes insists that all of his bullying blackmail and imprisonments were just because he loved her and the h decides to tell him she loves him back and HEA The h s pain and angst are very intense I was kinda hoping she would get a divorce and therapy and maybe move to Tahiti to get away from these people The repeated forced sex scenes were not only traumatizing to her but to me too I went through a ton of cookies and Captain on this one I think too many lose ends were left at the end to make his behavior believable as a wildly jealous and in love Alpha though I really did not see any love from him and the OW was never resolved nor where the H was at night when the OW was staying with them Sophie tries to put it all on the cousin s meddling cause he had a crush on the H s OW but the H had info that could only have come from the OW and so his fidelity and sincerity are really suspect The OM scenario is just bizarre and really was an awkward plot device The cousin was a dangling thread too so much of his behavior was contradictory it was hard to figure out what Sophie was trying to do with him He seemed to genuinely care about the h at times and at others acted like a two year old who lost his wubby I was than half worried that the H really was just waiting for her to confess her love and then he was going to abuse her there just wasn t enough of his dialog or any of his pov to convince me otherwise I don t even want to speculate on how horrible he probably acted the day after the supposed HEA This man was pretty merciless and indifferent to the h s obvious pain He did not even know she cried every time they had sex I found myself hoping he and the OW would go horse ridding together and fall off a cliff but sadly that did not happen Unfortunately the Aliens are NOT friends with Sophie W so no magical mind transplant occurred either and we are stuck with an unsatisfactory ending to a whole ton of angsty drama

Executive Lady Harleuin Presents #838

His presenceNo marriage no mergerThe merger of Vivian Glass with Raoul de Martin's powerful French conglomerate was essential Philippa knew she couldn't afford to offend himBut she positively prickled every time Raoul came near her Here was a man who despised easy flattery. Although I did enjoy the novel it is way too similar to another novel I can t think of the name of it right now but it was pretty close to the same storyline Now I ll be searching all my novels to find the other one for reference eventually I felt emotionally connected to the heroine she was dragged into an unfortunate situation which was eventually made better At the same time what the hero did in the book was vicious and malicious and just because you love someone it doesn t mean it s not rape That was the disgusting part the heroine condoned what the hero did to her and accepted that it was alright What utter foolishness

Yet seemed compelled to uash the resistance of anyone refusing homage to his potent magnetismRaoul was witty sophisticated charming and profoundly cold How else could he propose marriage in a bid calculated to restore declining investor confidence And how could she refuse.. Phillipa s uncle who had taken her in after the death of her parents was in great trouble In order to save his beloved company he has to accept a merger with Raoul De Marin s company Unfortunately her irresponsible cousin Rupert made a fatal mistake that jeopardized everything they worked for In order for everything to go smoothly again now Phillipa has to marry Raoul The shock of the situation that she found herself in didn t as much as settled in her mind before she found herself actually married to Raoul All her life she thought herself frigid especially after her first love betrayed her but Raoul frightened and attracted her She is terrified of him and his calculated domination and of her losing her true self by surrendering to him so she decided to fight him Not that Raoul allowed her to thoughIt s a typical plot where the hero forces the heroine to marry him I honestly gave it three stars for the excellent writing but there were things that bothered me in the hero The main thing was he didn t once listen to the heroine s pleas to stop and consider her feelings which made what he did to her all the like rape than love making The other thing was when he understood she was frightened of him because she was once almost raped and yet he continued to use his twisted threatening ways with her Love is a deep regard for the other one s feelings and not a crave for the flesh only
