by Margaret Pargeter

Helen was sure her father's new partner, Stein Maddison, was nothing but a fortune hunter, out for what he could get from the old man. Stein had even pursued Helen, and she could understand if he married her, he'd inherit the whole business someday. She finally ran away, so great was her disgust. But a combination of homesickness and something else she couldn't quite explain drove her back a year later, to find the situation quite changed.

It's a keeper. It's very emotionally intense, but that's how dominant hero expresses his feelings toward heroin. I loved it.
Young woman rejects the romantic gestures of her father's
business partner and she takes off for France thus,upsetting
the Alpha business partner...later she returns and her father
is dead. She thinks she has control of all of her father's wealth ?
Think again lady. Alpha male is HOT for revenge on her ignorant,
spoiled self.
This Alpha (Stein) was incredible. Grabbing,verbally abusive,
cold ,bent on revenge,relentless,constant trickery...what more is
there to ask for in this Alpha-fest. If reader likes the Alpha rough
and no holds barred,this is it.
****I felt the love scenes were a bit too chaste.*****
First of all, I love the old school romances written in the 70s and 80s. A non-PC hero is fine for me. However, this guy was too much. I love the vengeance theme, but think it works better when the hero thinks the heroine has done something horrible, such as being responsible for the death, etc of one of his family members. I can totally understand people going all vengeful for that reason, especially if a child is involved. However, this guy's only justification for vengeance was that the h rejected him (poor baby). Plus he assumed she had slept around (she was a virgin) and was determined to get what she'd been 'giving away' to everyone else. He was very rough with her and threatened to kill her several times. In the end he was "sorry" but still blaming her for having that effect on him. Why she loved him is a complete mystery, she should have run for the friggin hills and stayed gone.
This book was written back in 1983, so the hero is VERY dominant, if you don't like that kind of hero then this is not the book for you. I loved it. I couldn't put it down! Stein wants Helen(who is many years younger) and showers her with gifts, does everything to show her how he feels, but she is immature and even tho she has feelings for him she scorns him and runs away. (I don't wanna give too much away here). She comes back after a year away working only to find that Stein still wants her but is very angry with her for spurning his feelings. He makes her pay!
Every now and then, I pick up a Margaret Pargeter thinking I might find a good story. But this author's form is abusive relationships w plenty of emotional/physical bullying.
Other reviews say it all - not recommended.
