Sensual and passionate, delightfully decadent and well worth the time to sit down and read. She wants nothing more to do with men, oh but the hero....wants her!! Superbly written. I rank it up there with another favorite Fire In The Ice by Katlyn Stewart.

Almost Forever; describes Love
*****
"His spectacular looks and flashing smile stunned, his crisp-edged British accent
intrigued, and the quiet baritone of his voice soothed." This intriguing man can catch any
woman's eye, because he shows all the perfect qualities women look for. Men can come
across as the "perfect" man, but they end up deceiving women. How do women know
that the this perfect guy does not have something else behind his gorgeous body? In Linda
Howard's novel, Almost Forever, she achieves her purpose of describing how one's love
life can be hard and many people can get hurt. Claire struggles in her decision to love
Max, but the outcome turns out more that she can handle.
To make a long story short, Claire meets Max at a dinner party. Max knows
where Claire works and he attempts to get Claire to go out with him, but Claire does not
know that he works for a company that wants to take over her company. Max needs a
little information so he can successfully attempt the takeover. In the meantime, they
become close and Claire ends up telling him exactly what he needs to know. He leaves,
goes back to Dallas, and Claire finds out about Max's real identity. Max reaches a point
where he realizes he loves Claire and wants to tell her, but Claire will not give him the
time of day. After the takeover, Max transfers her to Dallas, where he works. Things
then get really messy, Max is heir to an aristocracy, from London. Is this league too high
for her? Will she accept his apology?
The setting of this book is in Houston, Dallas, and London. Howard uses great
detail in the Houston setting, where both of the main characters live.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a fairy tale contemporary romance novel. It is a story of a secretary who has a "dream man" enter her life demanding a relationship with her. It seems too good to believe and the heroine fights her attraction to this unlikely admirer. Her second sense turns out to be right - he does just use her - but he has fallen for her in the process and will not lose her.
Max Conroy is a striking, rich, very sexy, and handsome man with English nobility heritage living in the States. He works for a conglomerate, Spencer-Nyle, and his specialty is corporate takeovers. As the corporate giant plans it's next takeover, Bronson Alloys of Houston, Texas, they discuss possible hidden assets in Bronson that could impede the planned buyout. In an attempt to discover these possible assets, Spencer-Nyle sends Max Conroy to Houston for some undercover work. He is to meet Claire Westerbrook, the secretary to the president of Bronson Alloys, and charm her, date her, obtain her trust, and ascertain the inside knowledge needed to prepare the conglomerate for Bronson's buyout. You see - Claire is considered the weak link in the company.
Clair Westerbrook is a beautiful and very pleasant woman who doesn't see herself as such. Five years earlier, she had suffered through a painful divorce from her wealthy, handsome husband, Jeff. Jeff had not been faithful to Claire and left her for another woman. The past five years Claire has built walls of protection around her soul and heart. She has not dated and has schooled herself well in hiding her emotions. She carries a very cool look in her eyes now that gives away nothing - she becomes distant and icy should someone attempt to discover her inner thoughts.

I bought this book by accidnetly but I have to say, I am not disappointed. I couldn't put it down and I have to admit, this book makes me cry. For me, books that make me cry are good one. And because of the simplicity of each character is what makes the book interesting.
As we all know that the heroine have to be strong and independent but with Claire, she is totally opposite. She's fragile and sensitive but if you look deep inside her, she is one strong woman; and that is what she's trying to be all along after her divorce. And all of these are what make she's real.
With Max, what more can you ask for? He is perfect but what I love about him the most is his connection with him and his family. For woman, he is a playboy but for family, he is a family man.
"Almost Forever" is one of my favorite book of all time. Everytime when I pick it up, I can't stop myself from reading it.

I like Linda Howards writing and this book clearly has her style imprinted on it. Character development is great with the shy introverted Claire and the smooth skilled Max but something breaks down in the story after Max uses Claire and disappears for several weeks. Not only is this not very plausible but when they do get back together he becomes controlling and she falls in line following along willingly. He doesn't have a girlfrined anymore, she becomes his pet dog.
