She was bewildered by her own reactionClary couldn't deny the attraction that flamed between herself and Morgan Caird when they met in England But she didn't believe in love at first sightNeither My feelings about this book are conflicted I did like the intensity with this story I felt that the connection between Clary and Morgan was fated in an impossible to rationalize away However I just couldn't reconcile the relationship with Susan away I know that Morgan didn't know that Susan was married when they got together but he continued to sleep with her after he knew and was willing to take a separation as enough to continue his adulterous relationship with another man's wife I know my issues stem from my incredible distaste for adultery I tried to tell myself what Clary told herself what Morgan did prior to her was his business but it was too sordid for me to just chalk away So I could understand how hard it was for Clary on multiple levels In addition to unresolved issues from her father's destruction of his own marriage I think that she was in a very difficult situation with her love for Morgan in direct conflict with her loyalty and love for her brother the wronged husband I like that Donald didn't minimize this issue but it was something they both had to deal with face on Morgan's way of dealing with it was interesting and in a forceful way probably the most direct solution to the problemI love a possessive jealous obsessed hero but something about Morgan didn't sit right with me Maybe I didn't detect enough vulnerability from him early enough on He seemed a lot controlling than I like in a hero While I love a stalkerific hero I don't like controlling heroes and Morgan is definitely that On the good side his devotion for Clary was undeniable He showed that what he felt for her was different from what he'd felt for women in the past This is one of those books where I can say definitively that I wouldn't be happy with a man like this in real life I'm not sure how many women could be happy with a man like Morgan with his controlling somewhat inflexible the world bends to him and he doesn't bend to the world and yes manipulative personality As an only child he has a hard sort of self absorption that expects others to fall in with his own wants and needs That is not to say he is incapable of generosity or acts of kindness They are just on his terms Not sure that would be the ideal marriage partner honestlyI decided to give this book four stars because it has a lot of intensity and depth to it which does appeal to me as a reader Additionally I felt a mixture of very vivid emotions as I read it When I read books I want to experience the books on a visceral level and I did feel that with A Willing Surrender Yes this is one for readers who can't resist a stalkerific hero but there were aspects about Morgan's character that compromised my ability to like him as a hero especially his unethical response to the issue of sustaining an adulterous relationship with another man's wife He even admitted his jealousy and possessive feelings towards Clary Put on the other man's shoes It was like he didn't consider what that might do to another man whose wife he was sleeping with And it wasn't like he was in love with Susan and truly couldn't let her go That's undesirable to meI know I have massively over thought this book What can I say? I can't leave my brain behind when I read books

Robyn Donald ☆ A Willing Surrender epub

A Willing SurrenderDid she believe that a powerful experienced man like Morgan would be permanently affected in the same way So she refused to have anything to do with him and hurried home to New ZealandMorgan pro This HP begins with the uintessential coup de foudre with a man and a woman locking eyes across a room or rather across a field in this case and instantly being hit with a reciprocal intense illogical and completely irresistible yearning Unfortunately for the heroine the hero turns out to have had a fling with her brother's flaky wife destroying their marriage and sending the brother into a desperate uest for revenge The stuff of soap operasIt could have been cheesy but Robyn Donald though she is by no means a favorite writer of mine is far from cheesy Only through the strength of her feeling did this story not dissolve into a cartoonish unintentionally comical farce It was actually very intense with some rather interesting and deep characterizations of flesh and blood flawed characters confronted with real issues including family loyalty forgiveness and obsessionThis is why it was so disappointing for me to end it on a rather awkward anti climactic moment with the h's brother and her lover negotiating over possession of her while she is standing there in the room a silent and passive observer I mean there may as well have been an exchange of gold coins goats and silverware given the archaic patriarchal bargaining that went on between the two men What would have happened if they had not come to an agreement? Would the heroine then choose family over lover loyalty over love? Or would she have walked away from both? Would she have been forced to take an action to break the stalemate between these two powerful personalities? It might have been a better book if she had As it is she is the grateful beneficiary of the two men in her life coming to a truce for her sake A happy resolution no doubt but not exactly worthy of what had been so far a strong smart independent and resolute heroineI would have liked it much better if the heroine continued to show the strength she was capable of and arrive at her HEA through her own pro active solution rather than leaving it to be worked out between her brother and her loverIt was overall an interesting read but not a very satisfying one
