    Bow down, Bitches. For in the parallel universe that we call "Harlequin", Charlotte Lamb is the Head Bitch In Charge. That is all. *drops mike*

    This is the sequel to Sally Wentworth’s Shattered Dreams. Not really, but it feels like it. A year before, the hero was convinced that the super model wife was having an affair with her photographer. They were caught out when the photographer was killed in a car accident with the heroine at his side. The hero found some love letters to the h and hired a detective to make the case against her. The hero waited for the h to heal from her injuries and then he took her to their beach house in Florida This is the sequel to Sally Wentworth’s Shattered Dreams. Not really, but it feels like it. A year before, the hero was convinced that the super model wife was having an affair with her photographer. They were caught out when the photographer was killed in a car accident with the heroine at his side. The hero found some love letters to the h and hired a detective to make the case against her. The hero waited for the h to heal from her injuries and then he took her to their beach house in Florida for a week of punishment-by-rape and psychological torture. The heroine fled to London and became a secretary at an advertising agency. It’s been a year when the hero catches up with her. Hero is still angry, still wanting revenge, but the heroine is done trying to explain what really happened. (Photographer was an old friend who was jealous of her marriage and decided he was “in love” with the heroine. Heroine didn’t tell the H because she thought she could handle it with more diplomacy, etc . . .) The hero gives a big account to the advertising agency and the heroine feels obligated to cooperate since she’s come to care about the people she works with. Why I don’t know – they are all horrible people. The cruel, abusive way *everyone* talked about the so-beta-maybe-he’s-gamma-or-all-the-way -to-zed brother-in-law whom the heroine worked for was over the top. I know CL was making a distinction between the alpha hero and the alpha head of the advertising agency, but they all sounded like they were in junior high, shunning the weakest link. I hated those passages and that mind-set. Other points not in the story’s favor: Hero was a throwback alpha who mansplains everything – even the heroine’s character – even after he confesses to not really knowing her. Heroine was so beautiful and sexy and perfect that every man she met wanted her. There are some memorable scenes (like the heroine seeing her famous lingerie ad plastered all over the walls of their Florida bedroom) and some really pointless scenes (like the so-beta-he’s-gamma-and-maybe-even-zed OM nervously ordering drinks.) I won’t go into the plot, since CL does a great job keeping up the suspense. Is the hero really giving their marriage another chance or is he trying to destroy the heroine in a new way? I had no idea where this story was going when I picked it up. And that was part of the appeal. I couldn’t put it down even though there were way too many secondary characters and storylines. I think the biggest problem I had with this reading experience was the cruelty. I don’t have a problem with mean alphas who can only express their strong emotions through anger, revenge, sex, and shoe shopping. But I do have a problem when the strong pick on the weak and when all the secondary characters exhibit this kind of behavior for no good reason. It's a trainwreck, but not a fun one.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This one is way messed up. One of CL's obsessive H's and mixed up h's. The h left the H after he accused her of having an affair with her photographer and spends a week raping her. They meet up again when he comes after her and eventually have an HEA after lots of bullying and violence and roofie kisses. This one isn't a compelling as the Long Surrender or Dark Dominion. It has a lot of the violence but I just kinda wished they would both get lost in Florida.

Everything i love about Charlotte Lamb`s intense romances gets delivered in "Night Music" which is about a married couple that very much love each other. But a mistaken cause of betrayal that leads to hate and bitterness on both sides Lisa leaves her husband as she can`t take his cruel punishing for something she haven`t done. A year later he finds her and with a ruthless plan on his mind he is determined to get her back.! With a flawless language CL described the angst very well and the causes of it. The hero states a very interesting point to Lisa when he says that knowing what Denny feels about her, she should have told him and about the love letters. Even spending time with Denny without anything physical, she still committed adultery knowing that Denny loves her.Even then i felt so sad for her, knowing that she never meant for anyone to suffer and that she never deliberately did any of it. Steve Crawford, as most CL`s Alphas are, is a very possessive and jealous man. Mostly so, also very madly in love with Lisa. Still thinking that she had an affair with another man he would never have let her go and still even fights to take her back. What did that say about HIS pride or self-respect? I am surprised that Lisa never really thought about that. I love the way Steve talked about their marriage,its faults and realizing that neither of them really got to knew each other (well except in bed) and what little they knew each other they greedily took into their minds. Her being a model when they met, and Steve slowly starting to fall in love with the woman inside that mask, that admission really shocked me and that was also why he proposes to her within six weeks of meeting her.!There is many unforgettable scenes in this book, and every time their passion for each other exploded are one of them! This is yet again another guilty pleasure of mine by Charlotte Lamb, no one creates more dynamic and horrific romances like she does! 'I have my dreams too,' Steve murmured huskily. She turned her cheek to look at his inverted face, smiling at him. 'Do you? Tell me.' 'You,' he whispered, his lips on her cloudy hair. She smiled, her mouth brushing his shoulder. 'Mmm, and what else, darling?' 'You,' he said in a voice which stripped away the masks from both of them for ever. Lisa lifted her head. His face was alight with moonlight and passion, the blue eyes glittering and intent. Lisa felt her heart stop, then start again with a hammering speed which shook her whole body. 'You,' Steve said again, laying bare for her his own loneliness and need and the stark reality of their involvement. -Steve and Lisa

    An interesting old skool romance; sexist as hell, mind you, but interesting. Lisa ran away from her husband Steve after he became convinced she’d been unfaithful to him; now he’s found her and is determined to get her back. But Lisa is afraid he will never truly believe or forgive her, and will continue to punish her forever.

There’s a lot of attention paid to secondary characters and a lot of dialog and discussion about motivations, character, and so on. It’s heavy on the telling, rather than the showing, and parts of the commentary about the nature of men and women made my grit me teeth, but I respected the effort she put into writing something a little less ordinary and more thoughtful.

    Current Harlequin and romance writers could take lessons on from Charlotte Lamb on how to build up tension and scare the hell out your readers. There were more than a couple of times reading this book when it read more like a suspense/horror genre than a romance. She was about to draw the curtain again when she heard the slow click of feet on the pavement above the area. She drew back, holding the curtain but keeping out of sight.

There were more than a couple of times reading this book when it read more like a suspense/horror genre than a romance. She was about to draw the curtain again when she heard the slow click of feet on the pavement above the area. She drew back, holding the curtain but keeping out of sight. The iron gate at the top of their steps creaked in its familiar way. A black shadow fell across the paving stones, moving slowly. Lisa's nerves screamed. We’ve all eye-rolled when the h succumbs to the magic p at one touch. Lamb provides pretty convincing and valid evidence to support why this can happen without losing respect for the heroine. In this case, the hero is not far behind her in obsession. She could walk away and keep walking along this empty silvered sand into the void which waited for her, because if she walked away from Steve life would be a void. Whatever he did to her, she needed him, needed his presence to assuage the loneliness she had never recognised until now with that emptiness of sea and sky in front of her, forcing her to admit her own humanity and isolation. She stood there, shivering with the tremors of fear and recoil, feeling the hot pulse beating at her throat and wrists beneath all that, because, however he hurt her, Steve brought her to life too. PLOT The h is secretary to a rather feeble, asexual executive at an advertising agency. He takes the h out occasionally to bolster his ego; she goes because he’s not threat. Out at a snazzy dinner, the h can feel someone watching her. Turns out it’s her ex-husband she fled from a year ago. She had been a relatively famous lingerie model, and he was convinced she had had an affair with her photographer Svengali type. The pair were in a car accident where the photographer was killed. The whole scenario looked as if she was leaving for an assignation. Compound this with some love letters the H found, and he was on a rampage. The H took revenge by taunting her with some pretty nasty epithets, making her lose all control sexually then taunting her some more. It almost broke her emotionally so she fled to England. The H plays a cat and mouse game by hiring the agency to work on his business. The pair finally wear each other down, admitting that they can’t live without each other. The H says that he finally believes her in what, for me, was an abrupt turnaround, but hey, who knows. Each comes to the realization that their insane physical connection has allowed them to not connect in other ways, allowing them to keep pieces of themselves private. The H is an over the top alpha male obsessed with the h. The h is a pretty smart cookie, but has shut down over the emotional trauma of her husband’s emotional rape when he was convinced of her adultery. The turnaround was plausible, but I am not entirely convinced these two have happily EVER after in their future. My one real complaint about this book is the atrocious title. Time and time again, the characters discuss what is behind the mask you present to the world, and if either had ever been totally honest with each other hiding behind their own masks. Behind the Mask or The Mask Ripped Away or something along those lines would have been better titles. Night Music sounds like a poor editorial choice.

    "Night Music" is the story of Steve and Lisa. Without going into the OTT confusing storyline, its about two married but estranged manipulative individuals. We have everything from male chauvinism to female doormat-ism, cheating, bruising kisses, humiliation, bullying, domination, stalking and two toxic people who couldn't let go of one another. Both did stuff to hurt each other, and I couldn't sympathize with both, especially the heroine- who was for the first time in a CL book more in the wrong t "Night Music" is the story of Steve and Lisa.

    I think this is the first Charlotte Lamb book I've read where the hero didn't have grey eyes (this hero's were blue). This book was published around the time I was born, so it's way out of date in PC aspects. Not that I ever hold that against a book, even modern ones, since I'm just not feminist enough. This was also my first Charlotte Lamb book where she tried to give deeper meaning to her characters and the plot by analyzing things that should never be analyzed in a Harlequin.

Not the right arena for that. Anyways, the plot was good even if it was minimal and I truly believed the hero loved the heroine even if he was a raging prick. Rewritten today, this book could be even more interesting.

    Very un-PC novel with lots of angst. I found the H really creepy for about 60% of the book. But overall a fun read with possessiveness, fights and twists.

    For the first time in harlyland I liked the secondary caracters more than the hero or the heroine specially Evan her boss who adred his wife and shoew care and consern for her more than the H to the h 😂 The writing was excellent as usual for Charlotte Lambe but I think the internal dialogues were too long

    Me sitúo en la época y no cuestiono ciertas cosas que hoy en día no se permiten, de hecho la novela romántica ha evolucionado en este aspecto, pero reconozco que un tipo como Steve guapo, rico, (¡¡ lee historia de detectives !!) sobreprotector, posesivo, obsesivo, celoso y apasionado, son los protagonistas ideales que me gusta encontrar en estas historias. Lisa es un poco desabrida y apática, pero aguantable. En resumen Steve es quien le da vida a la historia.

    Another story of a woman who flees her brutal husband, only she can't stay hidden from him forever. Steve finds Claire and the story goes from there. Why do so many of these stories have women running from their men and in the end they can't stay away from them.
