I am a huge fan of Nalini Singh so of course, grab anything she's written. These Silhouette books were written earlier in her career. This was a good book and written well but so many times I wanted to hit the hero upside the head, hence his addition to my "hero needs a slap upside his head" shelf. He certainly had a tough childhood and had reasons to distrust rich, beautiful women but after the first couple of times he was cruel to Hira and later learned he was wrong, I thought that was enough. But it continued to happen a couple of more times. It got annoying.
Hira was cute at times, when she didn't understand the English slang, but at times she seemed just a bit too perfect.
However, having written all of that it was still a good book to read and a sweet love story.
