A Game Of Chance (Silhouette Romantic Suspense Bestselling Author) - Linda Howard While I think this is one of those books every romance reader should at least attempt, I have to admit I had a hard time liking this one... Well Wait, I liked it initially (In particular, I liked the heroine), and I liked the build up of the story.... but the end bothered me to no end. The hero is basically a jerk,and does jerk things, and the heroine of course forgives him with barely a an apology, soley because he said he loved her.. And of course that makes everything all right. The worst aspect, at least for me, is that it seemed like LH was saying that Even though the Hero was an asshole, it's okay, because he had a shitty childhood, and that of course makes anything he does okay....GrrrrSo... even though I'm not happy with the book, I'll say it's one you have to read as you can't not Respond to it. Also, if you can, try to avoid spoilers!
