Michelle Reid and Gold Ring of Betrayal make a total hypocrite out of me The unforgiving husband hero behaving very badly the wife willing to take on a second chance marriage by his terms endangered plot moppet and the unrepentant evil FIL just for starters in another book would have me ranting and one starring For whatever reason Michelle Reid’s writing archetypical strong and bitter hero and misjudged yet strong heroine are written with depth than usualAs mentioned by StMargarets the drama and atmosphere starts from the very first page where Sara the heroine is frozen in a state of stasis at the thought of her baby being kidnapped I was hookedview spoilerThe premise is the heroine was setup by her FIL as an adulterer The hero believes her guilt as well as the fact that her tiny little blonde doppelgänger is the result of the affair Big strong silent type banishes her to England and the lap of luxury They only come back together because her child is kidnapped The child is found shockerama in Sicily literally in the hands of the heroine’s greatest enemy the hero’s father Gramps is besotted with the little girl and now the heroine has a new concern that he will want the little girlThe H and h reunite under the condition he does not have to deal with child which is tough to read but the “Sicilian” unforgiving nature alpha nature is driven homeI don’t fault the hero for cutting her given that he thinks she committed adultery I do fault him for not listening to her Passion and angst done very well and swells out of control when the little girl gets sick The H’s father finally confesses his evil doings and the hero goes into a the typical guilt ridden poor pitiful me decline for a few days Guilt overwhelms him as it should The heroine gets a little fussed about it as once again and still it is all about the hero This time Mea culpa mea maxima culpaRegarding complaints that the FIL never gets a comeuppance I respectfully disagree The son that he sold his soul to the devil for wants nothing to do with his dying father now plus he’s in danger of never seeing the grandchild he never knew he would adore If it weren't for the fact that the plot moppet loves him too he would be out of luck hide spoiler

Gold Ring of BetrayalGo back to Sara and find that even after three long years she still wears his ring Michelle Reid displays a fine talent for mixing a provocative storyline and intriguing characters Romantic Times. This was going to be a 5 star read right up until the end where I felt that there was insufficient grovelling I loved the beginning The set up wasn't all that different or anything but it was just very well written and moving I choked up several times in the first half of the book as it was becoming apparent how he had misjudged her Also the kidnapping scenario was emotionally written also There was a lot of meat to the story But sadly just not uite enough grovelling You knew he was remorseful but I wanted to read actual words and begging from him Is that vindictive of me Still I recommend to angst lovers
