An Old Passion

An Old Passion - 3 1/2 stars. This one is hovering just on the edge between enjoyably douchebag hero and Oh My God. If you enjoy your romance heroes bitter, vengeful, and jealous almost to the point of murder, this one is for you. Merrin seems rather more mature and fleshed out than the heroines of such books often are, though her tendency to just whisper "stop" whenever Blase assaults her, and the fact that she never just leaves got irritating.
