That said, I found Sloan O'Riley completely obnoxious. He is only a trifle shy of being a rapist on several occasions, and yet he is put forward as a hero to be desired. Boys are taught today, or should be taught, that "no" means exactly that. No does not mean, "force me, you handsome devil." Unfortunately movies and fiction are still too often teaching the opposite. The alleged hero roughly grabs the woman who is protesting, struggling against his grasp, and saying "no, no, no," and as he forces his affections upon her, she slowly relaxes, her arms go around his neck and all's right with the world. It was all just an act to bring out the beast in him. And that's not a good message to be sending. It's like the drunk used for comic effect. The sot may serve to advance a plot, but drunks (and men who force themselves on women) are dangerous felons all too often.
Are there still people who think drunks are funny and that too forceful men are heroes? Let's hope not.
Amanda Calhoun works for a local hotel on Bar Harbor as the assistant manager. Beautiful and bright, she looks forward to the time when her ancestral home, The Towers will become both home and a boutique hotel which she will manage. A rather grounded young woman she never expected to fall for the Harvard educated architect, Sloan O'Reilly, from Oklahoma who has been hired to begin the renovations on the sister's home.
This book also continues the sister's search concerning the whereabouts of family heirlooms, a matched set of emerald earrings and necklace owned by the Calhoun women's great-grandmother, Bianca. And also answers the question as to whey there such noticeable hostility from Sloan towards another one of the sisters, Susannah when he's just met the family.
In her usual romance style Ms. Roberts presents her readers with a good romance book which I read in a couple of hours. Now I look forward to reading the third book in this series, For the Love of Lilah.
