First review This is the Harlequin equivalent of a little black dress or wedge sandals: it meets its objective. The h is maneuvered by her stupid father into a MOC with the H. What is daddy's weapon of choice? He won't give her the money for her daughter's heart surgery.
No, pops isn't heartless or wicked, he's simply misguided an Re-read Best hero ever. No, pops isn't heartless or wicked, he's simply misguided and arrogant. The H is a wealthy tycoon who wants to get to the next rung in the social ladder and the h is opportunity. He was a bastard and his father and high born family ignored him.
He's also had a thing for her for a long time. If this isn't enough to go with, Monroe tosses in view spoiler [. It's a real deal not something that exists only in Harley-land where it would be cured by the appearance of a magic penis. The H steps in with a program that is both creepily clinical and incredibly sweet and understanding. I was both attracted and repelled at the same time. View all 6 comments.

Lia suffers from a secret shame that has stolen her womanhood, and made her unable to enjoy sexual intimacy. It destroyed her marriage, because her husband couldn't stand not being able to make love to his wife. All Lia has left is her beloved daughter, whose heart condition, could shorten or end her life. She swallows her pride, and asks her grandfather, a proud, Spaniard noble, for the money to pay for her daughter's surgery. He gives her an ultimatum, she can marry the man he's selected for h Lia suffers from a secret shame that has stolen her womanhood, and made her unable to enjoy sexual intimacy.
He gives her an ultimatum, she can marry the man he's selected for her, Damon Marquez. Lia is inexplicably attracted to Damon, despite her sexual intimacy issue.
When she finds out that she's been bartered to him by marriage, she has no choice but to go through with the marriage, sure that he'll walk away from her, as her first husband did. But she's underestimated Damon. Damon has wanted Lia for a long time, since she was a young woman. When he gets his chance to have her, he grabs at it with both hands. She's so passionate and beautiful, how could he not take her in marriage?
When Lia tells him that she cannot be intimate with her, he is determined to find away around her painful medical issue. Damon was a really good hero. He was so tender and patient with Lia, willing to put her needs first, and refusing to let her turn her back on her womanhood. I thought Ms. Monroe did a good job of touching on a medical condition that most people probably have little knowledge of, vaginismus.
This condition causes painful tightening of the vagina, which makes sex difficult to impossible for those who suffer from it. Lia thought it was her fault, and her doctor and husband certainly didn't help her to feel differently.
But Damon is able to help her to claim back her sexuality. In the process, he claims her love. Blackmailed Into Marriage was an interesting story, with a great hero, and a heroine in need of healing, in more ways than one.
View all 9 comments. Generally I avoid books with sexuality issues as there is usually some history of sexual trauma and I am not comfortable reading about that. This H is somewhat unique, enthusiastic about the upcoming moc and clear in mind what he wants from the match — respectability, alliance with a noble family and a title.
He is also quite taken with the h and her daughter. So no grudging consent, resentment or hiding behin Generally I avoid books with sexuality issues as there is usually some history of sexual trauma and I am not comfortable reading about that.
So no grudging consent, resentment or hiding behind enforced compulsions. The h is the American granddaughter of a Spanish noble and a widow with a little girl who needs medical care.
When she asks her grandfather for money, he sets the condition of moc with the H or no money. She has a sexual disability n she consents thinking once she gets the money on the wedding day, she will let the H know about her problem n he will want to get out of the marriage asap. But the H is made up of sterner stuff and very much wants to keep his vows and make the h keep hers. The H was so awesome, so gentle, so patient and so sensitive and generous.
Any woman with such a problem should get a guy just like him- improbable but one can always hope. All the stars are for him. Jan 19, Jenny rated it it was amazing Shelves: made-me-swoon , steamy , heroine-not-a-virgin , heroine-i-adore.
