Catherine George à Villain of the Piece book

Lucy's life was literally crashing around her ears As a desperately struggling single mother of a ten year old son she had no choice but to turn for help to t Re Villain of the Piece CG is back with a seekrit baby story Usually I don't mind seekrit babies they are just part and parcel of HPlandia and frankly some of these H's are not ideal daddy material So I sorta think that the h and baby are better off without one excepting proper financial support of course But this one bugs me it has a 27 yr old h who is a single mum with a 10 yr old son It is widely assumed in the small village where she lives that she and her very BFF another local gentry family neighbor boy are the parents of her child She was considered to be the neighbor boy's girlfriend and the only reason she is still acceptable and liked in the village is that the neighbor boy died during a flying lesson before they could marry The h has never said who the father of her child is a maid overheard a conversation and spread the gossip that the BFF and h were going to be parentsand since she had the support of her Ex Army Hero and well respected father she just let everyone think what they wanted to and everyone thought it was such a shame that the young lovers were permanently parted before the wedding But things happen and life goes onIt turns out that the h's BFF neighbor has an older brother and at the start of the book we find out that they shared a very intimate moment that summer when the h was seventeen but the older brother was engaged to another local girl and the h was presumed to be the BFF's The h unfortunately witnessed the accident where her BFF died She went to talk to the H about things a bit after his brother's death and after his fiancee had run off with another man to live in Brazil When she went the H was drunk knew she was preggers and threatened her and told her that any attempts to claim support for the child would be firmly rejected because there was no proof of paternity The h was really traumatized by the H's rage and anger and took offThe H had tried several times over the following ten years to apologize for his words he was grieving and jealous and drunk The h refused to let the H anywhere near her and she argued with her father over letting her son even be around the H at all The h eventually relents on her son seeing the H but she harbors a mean grudge and she is serious in her hatred for the HThen her pipes burst and she wrecks her clunker of a car on a patch of ice while driving in the fog Her father died recently and she is trying to sell his Victorian pile but since the pipes burst and the h did not pay her insurance premium because she is a bit poor she is really facing destitution Her son attends a boarding school that the h's father was an alumni of and the h's dad made sure his school fees were paid up until he graduates The h also has an antiue shop but the rent is due to be raised and business is not brisk She does set aside ten years of hatred for the H when he shows up at her powerless water logged house and offers her a room at his Estate He also sends his estate manager over to sort the h's house out and he lends her a brand new car The H is a wealthy anthropologist who travels a lots When the h gathers up her courage to ask for a loan the H proposes that they marry and he can make the h's son his heir The h checks with her son who wholeheartedly approves and then the h agrees to marry the H if he will settle all her debts and help her with her house The conjugal part of marriage is discussed and the H promises to keep his hands to himself tho they have to share a room until the h decides otherwise It pretty uickly becomes apparent that the H is the h's baby daddy it is also pretty clear that the H is massively into the h and looking for a reason to catch herThey marry and honeymoon in Portugal with the usual HP travelogue and they also eventually consummate their marriage The H finally admits that he is wildly in love with the h and has been since she was 17 and hanging around with his brother His engagement was a mistake that he uickly regretted brought on by booze and moonlight he never really liked the OW and then she ran off The h explains that she cares a lot for the H she feels great around him and in bed but she has never had any experience with passionate love and so she thinks she loves him but isn't sure The H is a bit disappointed but they are happy enough and lurvin it up all over so the marriage seems to be working outThen the h's son cuts his foot badly and might need a transfusion the H finds out the son's blood type and realizes that the son must really be his and not his brother's who was only his cousin really but his aunt got in the unmarried family way so the H's mum and dad raised the baby as their own Then the H's aunt raised both of them when the mum died The h finally confesses months after the wedding that the H is really the baby daddy The h was really hurt by the H that day she came to talk to him after his brother died and when the H ran her off she decided he just did not need to know until her dad died and she needed money Things are tense between the two and then the h gets sick and the H is booked for a big trip to a remote part of Brazil The h tells the H to go and when he does his plane crashes in the jungle The h finds out she is preggers again and she winds up having a little girl who is premature The h went into labor when she heard about the H's plane and his presumed dead status The h and her son and the new baby are all trying to go on but the h finally realizes that she really loves the HWhich is great cause he shows up out of the blue for the big HEA two pages later And he is really surprised by another baby that he never knew about tho to be fair the h did write this time around he just never got the letter The H and h declare massive love for each other after the h is overjoyed to see the H alive and then the son finds out the H is his bio dad for the big HEAThis one wasn't bad but I couldn't help thinking the h was really really spiteful Had she told the H about the son right when they married I wouldn't be bothered but to let that situation go on for as long as it did was wrong The h came off as really really mercenary and mean This isn't a great HP the brother trope tho she really was only friends with the dead BFF brother ironically she only hung out with him initially cause she had a thing for the engaged at the time H and the H finding out he is a dad the way he did made this book rather mediocre and could probably be skipped for better HPlandia offerings
