Haunted Dreams book There's no extended grovel or a convincing Charlotte Lamb never fails to entertain

Re Haunted Dreams - Charlotte Lamb's third book of the Sins series is an EPIC WHACKTASTIC HP outing. Before we start on this one, HUGE WARNING: This book is old, old, olde skool HPness. This is a May/December relationship that includes the H strangling the h at a critical point. There's no extended grovel or a convincing Charlotte Lamb never fails to entertain. Her heroes can be wonderful, others are cruel, and a few are even downright scary. Every reader has their own definition of cruel and scary.

Sins

Was the grass really greener for Ambrose Kerr?

"I've never told a living soul any of that before…."

Emilie stared up at Ambrose, as what he had told her reverberated in her mind. She hadn't really taken it all in—where on earth could he have come from to have lived like that…?

He ran his hand through his thick black hair in an angry gesture. "God knows why I blurted it out to you. I wonder if you realize…I've given you a weapon that could destroy me…."

Love can conquer the deadliest of Sins.

Interesting plot but I couldn't get beyond the part where he could have killed her (she was actually losing consciousness) but he never apologized and was pretty dismissive of where his jealousy could lead --to murder. She (too young, too foolish) was more concerned with him believing that she was telling the truth about other guy instead of saying to herself "down the road this man might end up killing me from jealousy."

Despite it's copyright date of 1996, this follows somewhat typical older Harlequin Presents story lines. Emilie, 20, is the unassuming,virginal ingenue, Ambrose,39, is the hard bitten, extremely successful cynic that is attracted to Emilie's purity and innocence. I usually enjoy Charlotte Lamb books, and this was no exception. However beware, as is typical of some older Harlequin's, there is physical abuse by the hero to the heroine. Spoiler ahead: Ambrose being so much older then Emilie is insecure about their age difference, his own poor upbringing, and the fact that there is another much younger suitor pursuing her. While there are kissing scenes, there is basically only one real sex scene, and that is when Ambrose takes her virginity (after proposing first of course!) This sex scene seemed more realistic than most modern Harlequin romances which portray sex as incredible and fabulous from the very first moment, despite circumstances or lack of experience. In this book, Charlotte Lamb documented the hero's perspective and misgivings about pursuing Emilie feeling he is inappropriate for her, she also changed the perspective (albeit briefly) to Sophia's (Emilie's nemesis & rival), which is somewhat unusual for Harlequins. I found the book to be enjoyable until right at the end when Ambrose, believing he has been betrayed by Emilie because personal info is published about him (and finding her other suitor with her) actually CHOKES her! There were even purple marks noted on her neck! Yet a few pages later all is forgiven and they are planning to live happily ever after! Arggh! However, again, typical older Harlequin.
Overall, an interesting, if not somewhat nostalgic read but as my title says beware of the abuse coming at the end.

Description from the book back cover:

He had achieved success that others could only dream about - and envy. Was that why Ambrose Kerr held everyone at arm's length? Emilie assumed that he would never want her, because she was so young and naive. But then she discovered the reason why Ambrose was so wary -- he hid an incredible secret. The truth only made Emilie want Ambrose more, but it was also dynamite ... if others got to know the real story, their new-found happiness would explode ...
