Just OK, wasn't too impressed with hero's reasoning 3 1/2 Nov. 9 2011
By Anime, Manga and Harlequin Romance Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
From the back cover: Permission to Love by Penny Jordan

True love needs no approval

Lucas had always urged Lindsay to take charge of her own life, even though it meant defying her father's wishes. All that changed, however, the day Lucas was left in charge of Lindsay's inheritance--and her fate.

Quite suddenly Lucas withdrew his support and directed Lindsay to marry according to her father's will. He made it painfully clear that Lindsay could no longer turn to him for warmth and affection.

But by the time she'd resigned herself to a future without passion with a man she did not love, Lucas changed his mind again.

My thoughts: SPOILERS: I read two REALLY GREAT Penny Jordan books, then I read this one, so my review could be a little skewed. I thought the hero's reason for keeping the heroine and himself apart was kinda "ehh" and plus he was a little wishywashy/confusing. He wasn't sticking to the plan or should I say the plan he was forced to do. He loved the heroine and kissed her when she was a teenager and then after the heroine's father died and the will said that he was the guardian and heroine must marry someone with good standing, etc. he decides to forsake his love for her and even does something ultimate just to protect her, etc. However, he doesn't really do a good job because he says this and but then does that, etc. etc. I was going to give it 2 1/2 stars but I didn't because, I liked the fact that hero was SO devoted and in love with the heroine. He actually (GASP) marries someone else BUUUUTTT can't consumate because of the heroine! (Basically, the "villain" calls the hero impotent, LOL) As for the heroine, I wasn't too impressed with her either. Her reasoning for getting married was also dumb. I mean, really, you kinda know your fiance is the way he is and you really think its going to work?? Yes, i initially got this book also because it was one of those stepbrother themes, but otherwise, I only "ok" with the book and storyline. As usual with Penny Jordan, the love scenes were hot. But the story/hero's reasoning, etc. I wasn't too impressed. Also, the "unexpected surprise" from the hero's father was kind of predictable and almost just put in there so the hero/heroine doesn't feel too bad that they hooked up. Anyway, OK book. I might re-read it one more time just to see if I didn't give it a fair chance and I may have read it too fast/skimmed, but for now my rating is 3 1/2 stars.
A Really Sweet Romance Oct. 20 2013

This book is why I love Penny Jordan's books. The hero's unrequited love for the heroine, in spite of the hero's marriage(non consummated) to a truly awful woman, is terrific. The fact that the heroine arrives at her true feelings for him, which she has had since she was 16, on her own is truly sweet. I'm was glad to see her get rid of her "fiancée" who was really after her money. One could only hope he was stuck with the bitch his family really wanted him to marry. Read the book! You'll be smiling just about all the way through.

From the back cover Feb. 3 2007
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Guardian groom.

Lindsay's father had always wanted her to become the wife of a wealthy man. It was what he'd prepared her for all his life. And, in her loyalty to her dead father's wishes, Lindsay was willing to submit herself to a loveless marriage.

But, before she could marry, Lindsay had to get the permission of her new guardian - the darkly handome Lucas. And he made it clear that he would not give it under any circumstances - except one.
