This is a very dated romance. The original published date is 1996 and it really doesn't hold up to modern standards in my opinion. The hero is extremely misogynistic and treats the heroine very badly. I reread books all the time and this is not one I'm likely to ever want to read again.

I read this book a second time, having forgotten the bulk of the story anyway. Once I started re-reading it I remembered that someone on a romance book website had been really angry about this storyline. Without giving away too much, I do have to agree that it is somewhat misogynistic. For a romance novel it isnt romantic at all.
