I Actually Read This Twice

Wife Against Her Will (Harlequin Presents, #2544) - Sara Craven

book trigger warning: heroine was raped

This was one of the first Harlequin Presents I read when I started up again after a 30 year hiatus. I hated it, but recently felt like rereading it and seeing what I think now.
 
Joel: [Is typical sexist horrible HP hero.]
Darcy: "I hate you I hate you I hate you."
[forced marriage, followed by forced seduction sexytimes]
Darcy: "That was awesome! TOO awesome. Get away from me you disgusting pervert!"
Joel: "I feel terrible about having been a typical sexist horrible HP hero, so will now respect your oft-stated desire to have nothing to do with me."
Darcy, to self: "He loves someone else! He was just using me for sex!"
Joel: "Please spend platonic time with me because I'm so crazy about you."
Darcy: "Get away from me you disgusting pervert!"
[initiated by Darcy sexytimes]
Joel: "I love you I love you I love you."
Darcy: "He loves someone else! He was just using me for sex! Get away from me you disgusting pervert!"
Joel: "I was only a typical sexist horrible HP hero because I fell in love with you at first sight."
Me: "Oh fuck off, the both of you!"
