I really like this author and this story does not disappoint I won t go into the plot because other reviewers have already covered it but I will say that the misdeeds and suffering are nicely calibrated in this hero revenge story And speaking of the hero for someone who wants revenge he s incredibly sweet to the heroine while he is courting her and when they are married I loved the flashback scenes from their marriage putting their house together The heroine is a pure soul and of course the hero fell for her That s why it seemed important to this reader for the heroine to find peace and her enthusiasm for life again We re with her as she goes on her journey from darkness and bitterness to light and love It s not forced and it s not insta love sex it s the hard work of digging deep into her values and what kind of person she wants to be The hero has done some of that work during their separation making peace with his father in law but he too has to face the full extent of what s he s done to the heroine and it almost breaks him In the end it s the heroine who has the power to heal and she uses her powers for good The opening is shocking but we see it through the lens of a very numb heroine The OW is apologetic and understanding not taunting and horrible The h gets lots of apologies throughout the book that s why her forgiveness didn t feel instant or forced at the end It s been coming all along

Re Saved from Sin the title in this one comes from an old fashioned saying that Scottish Calvinists used to warn of the temptations of the flesh without benefit of marriage In fact the original MB title is Save My Soul From Sin which is a paraphrasing of lines from either Dr Faustus Psalm 2220 or St Augustine s comments on St Paul s statement that it is better to marry than to burn What is even extraordinary about this book besides the very different title with it s very Christian implications is what other reviewers mention the h does indeed meet the H again after a three year separation while he is with another woman Any writing class will tell you that one of the most important things in any story is what they call the hook an opening that draws the reader in and keeps them turning the pages this is true for both non fiction news stories etc and fiction stories The H with the OW hook is a very bold but dangerous one to use cause it has a very great chance of backfiring and alienating the reader so much that they won t finish the book This is especially true in HPlandia cause while there may be the implicationperception of the H being unfaithful it is pretty much understood that once an H falls in love he really doesn t sleep with anyone else Well at least we like to believe soIn fact that opening is so dangerous to the relative peace and familiar harmonic undercurrents of HPlandia that it has only been used three times and judging by the wildly varying reviews and ratings both on Ammy and Goodreads there is a very good cause for author s hesitating to use it Both Sharon Kendrick s Bought By Her Husband and Sarah Morgan s Powerful Greek Unworldly Wife use this device and SK s book is one of the most reviled in HPlandia anywhere she is also the only one to take it to the extreme of the H actually using the OW while he is talking to the h SM s book sets up the H with the OW but the h makes an appearance before anything truly occurs It is a risky opening and how well it works is entirely dependent upon the skill with which the author relates the backstory of the couple and how convincing they are in the follow up romance LA did a fairly good job on this one mostly I think because her books are always very h centric and focus on how the h comes to the conclusions she does and how she acts on her convictions after she arrives at them She takes the betrayal for revenge and reconciliation tropes to some interesting conclusions with her internal musings of the h and the h s actions and for once provides a very believable reason of WHY an h would continue a life with a man who horribly betrayed her She also provides a certain amount of H redemption although it is all h pov the reader does get a sense that this man has suffered greatly for his arrogance So circumstances being what they were and how the h manages to resolve her turmoil to what I believe was a genuine HEA with a believable outcome make this one a keeper for me although mileage does vary and other people may not feel the same The story starts with our 22 year old h She is on her own having left her marriage and her father behind three years earlier when she found out her beloved H had only married her for revenge She runs into him while conducting consumer surveys and she happens to knock on the door of the OW s apartment The OW answers the door buttoning up a man s shirt and the h introduces herself she starts to explain she is out taking surveys when the OW apologizes very embarrassedly and calls the man in the room over who is buttoning up his shirt and when the h looks at him it is her estranged husband The h then does what all good HPlandia h s do when confronted with emotional trauma they can t run away from she faintsLater she wakes up and finds herself in the OW s bed and then the backstory portion begins The h remembers how she got to where she is now and the lead up to the present is very detailed it takes over half the bookThe h has two rather distant but fabulously wealthy parents who appear very cold to each other and when her beloved mum dies her father sent her away to a Swiss finishing school rather than grieve with her This had caused a fair amount of resentment in the h so when she returns home after having to threaten her father to make him let her she further asserts herself by moving in with a dear friend getting a job and basically having a typical life for a young lady making her stab at independence For some reason everybody around her thinks she needs to be sheltered Part of this is that no one knew her parents even had a child until her mum s funeral and the other part is the h is painfully direct and honest about her feelings about pretty much EVERYTHING She is just one of those people that wears her heart on her sleeve and what she likes she is wildly enthusiastic about She doesn t hold back on her joy or her appreciation of life and because of it people tend to treat her like a naive childHer father worries that she is going to be swept up by some fortune hunter and her best friend is worried that some guy is going to take advantage of her The h IS childlike in her enthusiasm but she is also pretty sensible for a 19 year old She knows that she isn t up to a big affair with a really sophisticated man She has lots of dates with guys in her social circle and she describes them very well as young men with interest in the Rugby Union or fast cars than having a serious affair She is aware that they might want to get physical than she is but she also makes herself pretty safe by paddling in the shallows of the dating pool with guys who wouldn t really try to take advantage of her and she has a few strategies for discouraging them when they get too amorous Then she meets the H at a big society party her roommate s parents house She is rather daringly dressed in a slinky gown style she hasn t worn before and the H is very nice to her when he finds her alone after her date for the evening leaves to get her a drink She chats with him for a bit and is very attracted but he is 32 wildly wealthy and obviously used to a much sophisticated woman than she knows herself to be She is a bit disappointed when her date comes back but figures she is better way below the H s league and her roomie agrees when she lists the H s known companions The list includes several high powered glamorous career women the OW from the story beginning is listed she is apparently a very famous artist All of the ladies are very experienced in all meanings of the word and the h knows she is just too country bumpkin to even get a look in Until the H looks her up and asks her out She eventually agrees to go out for dinner after a really honest conversation about what his expectations in his dates are and how she is no where near his level in dating experiences The H bemusedly agrees to keep his hands to himself and so they start have excursions together over the next several months The excursions come to an end when one of the h s other dates gets a bit rough and tries to kiss her he leaves bruises which the H discovers and he volunteers to kiss her so she can test the differences He gives her one of the best kisses in HPlandia and possible in all the universes at least from her pov and she doesn t like how it makes her feel and tells the H she can t see him any The h very wisely concludes that she falling in love and the H isn t going to stick with a girl like her so she dumps him The H isn t ready to be dumped tho so he shows up some weeks later and proposes She agrees and wants to do it right away Her father is out of the country for several months and she wants to just be a normal couple with a little house and things instead of a big society bridal pair and all the attendant social parties etc The H agrees and they get married The roommate is unsure about it but relents and wishes them happy when her cat jumps into the H s arms and apparently approves of him We all know that everything is really going to be okay in the end when the imperial cat approvesThen the father returns and tells the h that the H married her for revenge The h s father and the H s mum were engaged years before The H s mum eloped with another man two weeks before the wedding and so the father married the h s mum But he was a real jerk and named the h after his eloped love and then the h s mum found out what he did and realized that the father was using her Since she was really in love with the man this tore her apart and she grew to hate him but she also had a child with him and did not want to raise her in a broken home The h s mum insisted that the h be called by another name and that was the reason why the h sensed that her parents did not really like each other and why they were so removed from the h herself Her father says he tried but he just couldn t get over the H s mumThe H puts a bit perspective on the story It turns out that the h s dad ruined the H s dad career and so his dad couldn t work in his chosen field of chemical research This put a lot of pressure on the marriage and his mum died in part because the stress wore her out The h s dad wasn t really mourning his lost love he was just nursing the wound to his ego and he pretty much destroyed everyone else s life because of itThe h is in utter shock she really believed the H loved her and she just can t handle a marriage under such deceitful circumstances She isn t comfortable with the H any and her father s behavior absolutely appalls her She also relates to how her mum must have felt and she doesn t want any of that torment so after she see s the H kissing another woman and realizes their physical relationship down the tubes she refuses any H explanations and takes off The story resumes in the present when the H tells the h that her father is very ill and needs a major surgery but may not survive Both the H and the father have been searching for her and worry over her disappearance has made the father s condition worse The h doesn t want to go anywhere with the H but she has a long talk with the OW the OW always calls her lovers Mike she is remarkably impersonal in her affairs and the H is no exception and the OW explains about the relationship she has with the H The OW and the H knew each other for years in school etc She had a very bad relationship break up and fell to pieces The H helped her recover and got her painting again and they lived together for a little while well before the H was really rich and met the h but they weren t really meant to be a couple so they parted ways and only kept in distant contact When she met the H again for the first time in over three years he was pretty messed up so she offered her companionship as way to pay him back for his prior kindnesses She hadn t known anything about his marriage until she saw him again the day beforeThis brings us to HPLandia rule 7 the H is ALWAYS allowed OW even if he is technically married as long as he is not cohabiting with the h In HPlandia non cohabitation means no commitment and this book is far from the first to use that handy little get out clause often with worse offenders than the one verifiable time this H has as we all know from Anne Mather A lot of reviews on this book mention multiple one night stands for the H secondary characters in the book mention that as well for reasons I will describe later on I totally believe the OW was the ONLY OW and only because she was a very sincere old friend and he was pretty much at the end of his ropeThe h confides to the OW that she is still devastated over losing her baby as she was unknowingly preggers when she left and she miscarried when she tripped and fell from what she thought were the H s detectives following her She explains that she has been pretty fine by herself and really has no desire to get involved with the H again The OW suggests returning with the H to her father s sickbed to prove that she really is indifferent and maybe he will let her goThe h finally agrees but upon returning to her father s side she is shocked by how ill and feeble he is and is unable to say anything when the father assumes the H and h are back together The h tells the H what happened and he decides to insist upon a real consummated marriage when she just wants a name only partnership She tells him off and the father is set up to have his surgeryWhat follows is the h having a very intense examination of her feelings and the nature of forgiveness and love LA gets rather philosophical here and there is some comparison to Christian charity but it really works for the story She is still horrified by her father s actions but she loves him too and he is very close to death and that shakes her up She realizes that she forgives him and her conscience really starts in on her when she applies that same theory of forgiveness to the H Plus to be fair her father acted much worse than the H did The H really did nothing to the h that hurt her or that she did not want The only thing that happened was he married her for revenge but he did not ACT mean or horrible or hurtful to her He appeared to be just as enthralled with her as she was with him and if she is the forthright person she wants to be and if she wants to keep her self respect she knows she needs to forgive the H as well The h also runs into her old roommate who further enforces that the H MAY have had a one night stand or two but has essentially done nothing but look for the h and work for the last three years No affairs and he is looking worse all the time The H then interjects his own pathos into the situation while waiting for the father to be surgery ready he pretty much leaves the h physically alone He does want her and there are a few punishing kisses but he doesn t pursue her Then he sees her in the nursery area at the hospital looking sad and brow beats the OW into telling him about the miscarriage He does a full on seduction of the h and then leaves her the next morning thinking that she must hate him for her loss and he isn t planning on returning Her dad will make a full recovery so she can tell him whatever she wants The h realizes that she is still wildly in love with the H and that they can move on and so she has to track him down The h finally finds the H in their old house he bought her when they married and that she decorated all herself He has kept all her things there and everything is exactly how she left it It is his shrine to her He explains that he really did initially marry her for revenge Then he got to know her and lived with her and then he fell totally in love with her When she left him she completely broke his heart She was the best person he ever met and when he found her again he was going to be sneaky and seduce her and get her preggers so she wouldn t leave him Then he saw her sadness and realized he was still being evil cause he thought she hated him and so he took his one night to last forever and then was leaving the country However all the flights were grounded in a Divine Act of fate so he went to their home to brood The h tries to apologize for running off and losing the baby but he takes all of the blame and they both avow true love forever There is some magic reunion lurve time and then the epilogue where the h has just had twins and everybody is happy Overall the followup story makes the opening of the book work The important thing becomes the dissection of the h s feeling and motives and LA does this extremely well The h isn t issuing a blanket act of blind forgiveness for either her father or the H She is realistically examining what happened and how it REALLY affected her as opposed to just nursing some wounded feelings The h examines her own moral values and how she wants to live with HERSELF and her own sense of being a decent person She is a fairly good example of how a person gets to unconditional love and she doesn t tolerate people treating her badly while she does it I had a very clear sense of why she took the H back and why she acts as she does and I believed the HEAThe H is also believable in this one his actions make it very clear that he sincerely regrets his part in the whole thing I liked how devastated and broken he was shown to be and I have to say it was one of the best stories of how an arrogant H gets knocked off his high horse by the skillet smack of real love in all HPlandia and that aspect is all the better because it is all demonstrated via his actions and not through his POVThis story with it s notorious opening is one the gems of HPlandia If you can get over the beginning you will be in for a very engrossing few hours and a happy glow from the inner joy of experiencing a very believable HEA that is made even better because of the angst trainride it took to arrive at it
