Duarte's Child

While pregnant, Emily leaves her husband Duarte. Six months later he finally tracks her down and brings her home again.

This is one of my favourite Lynne Graham books. Sure, it's got the requisite manipulating personal assistant with a plan of her own, but the problems between Emily and Duarte are exacerbated, not caused by, Bliss' machinations. Emily develops a backbone, and confronts Duarte, who makes an honest attempt to reform. My only real complaint is Bliss' name. What kind of a name is that? Who names their daughter Bliss?
