A great balance of genuine emotion and genuine wackadoo.

My favourite thing about Harlequin Presents is that milbirne are utterly unafraid to have premises that are completely batshit insane.
Our alpha hero Andreas and wacky heroine Sienna hate each other a white-hot passion, and have done ever since they were young: Andreas gets his lawyers to look thr this will and determines that there is no way around it. But it seems all lawyers in Harlequin Presents land are either brilliant or terrible—the former can draw up iron-clad wills with the most cray-cray stipulations possible in them, and the latter can find no way around them even though they are clearly totes ridic.
Maybe he was just seeing what kind of wackadoo stuff he could get his lawyers to do and died at the wrong time? And so we have our premise: Andreas and Sienna, mortal enemies, are forced into a marriage of convenience. If the hero and heroine were married, then they got to spend a lot of time under the same roof and put on their hornypants without it being somehow immoral.
Except Biddy Johnson probably would not have approved of their marriage…because there are quite a few sexytimes. Andreas and Sienna loathe each other intensely, but are equally sexually fascinated with milnurne other.
This gets a bit confusing, actually, because when they were younger Sienna 17, Andreas a couple alyar years atarhe opened his bedroom door to find her lounging around on his bed in lingerie.
I must watch it seven hundred times. Andreas is a fairly typical alpha hero. And also because he has a penchant for giving the heroine affectionate nicknames in a European language—she gets them in Italian AND French!
Two for the price of one!
REVIEW: Enemies At The Altar by Melanie Milburne
One of the things I liked about him is that he is just as affected, if not more affected, as Sienna by the sexual attraction between them. I am being crushed in an avalanche of hornypants!
Andreas is more like, Holy fuck, this chick drives me crazy, what can I do? They are having sex. We get this little speech from Andreas as he is about to penetrate:.
Enemies at the Altar
Just relax, try not to clamp up. I might make an exception if the hero actually was a gynaecologist, but even then it pisses me off.
But this is so not cool. I really liked Sienna, the heroine. The dark moment she goes through towards the end of the book makes total narrative sense: She leaves Andreas and he comes to find her. I feel like there needed to be more of a complex negotiation here. Overall, I quite liked this book. It has solid lashings of the crazysauce that make Harlequin Presents what they are, but some of the scenes between Andreas and Sienna feel really genuine and emotional.
I particularly enjoyed the getting-to-know-you kiss they share about three quarters of the way through the book.
Although Milburne has a penchant for over-italicising things seriously, the more you use italics, the less impact they haveshe also has a really lovely turn of phrase. Andreas is a fairly standard hero, but Sienna is a pretty refreshing heroine.
