    1. Another very well done story by Charlotte Lamb. Unlike some of the more contemporary romance writers she takes time to develop her story and her characters.Clare, the heroine, was raped at a New Year’s Eve party at 18, and has shut down her physical responses to men since. Of course she never seeks any therapy, and for the era, early 80s, that’s not so surprising. She’s an up and coming actress, and in a way, she channels her horrible experience, her cynicism and distrust in positive ways [...]


    2. It was a pretty great book, and especially in the context of the time it was written in, compassionate and insightful in its approach dealing with a woman who has been completely traumatized after a date rape at the age of eighteen.I loved the hero in this one. He has been carrying a torch for her for seven years, because a platonic friendship with her is better than an empty sexual relationship with another. They are best friends, literally finishing sentences for each other, communicating thro [...]


    3. This one was hard to warm up to. The heroine is brutally date raped in the first chapter and then the narrative picks up 9 years later in Nice, France. The hero is not the rapist - thank goodness. The hero is a playwright who has been in love with the heroine ever since they met a few months after her date rape.The heroine is so frozen that she doesn't really register what the hero feels for her. The catalyst for their romance is the date rapist coming back into the heroine's life and the heroin [...]


    4. Drier than a mouth full of crackers.This book has the honor of being one of the most bland romances I've read to date by the late, great Charlotte Lamb. Even though the heroine experienced a "rough lovemaking" session (euphemism for a traumatic rape, gotta love the PC of it all—not) and the hero suffered unrequited love for seven years, I just couldn't empathize with their struggles because of the dry, clinical writing. I wanted to. I really, really did. So this definitely lacked a good measur [...]


    5. I love how the back blurb calls Date Rape "rough lovemaking" back in ole 1981.This is a pretty good unrequited love story. Heroine is an actress. Hero is a playwright so we get b!tchier repartee than usual. Set in a villa in Nice, France.


    6. A nice read.I wasn't sure until halfway through the book, who would she end up with. I was so keyed up, i jumped to the last page just to the mystery lolI enjoyed it.


    7. Ik heb deze in het NL gelezen (Een schuchter ontwaken). Deze keer een niet ontzettend voorspelbaar verhaal, maar je ziet het einde wel aankomen.


    8. I read this years ago, in high school, this is one of my favorites from Charlotte Lamb. It was very different from the usual Harlequins of its time. For one, the heroine is a victim of rape. This was also one of the first instances where we have a damaged, commitment phobic heroine, which is standard fare now, but not back then.The description of the villain can easily be one for the standard Hero. He is tall, handsome, charming. A wealthy successful older man. The heroine is attracted to him an [...]


    9. This particular heroine has amnesia and thinks she is eighteen. She plays with dolls thats right!!!! Freaking DOLLS and then when she gets her memory back, she gives up her dolls because apparently she is grown up for them,,, N this lady is the heroine of the book and gets a sexy guy tooMan why do guys like dumb girls


    10. What I like about that book it's that what I expect. It is not what happen. Heroine is afraid of having a relationship with any man because of a bad experience she has in her past.
