Dilemma in Paradise book. So this is the story that kicked off Robyn Donald's Fala'isi island setting. I've seen this couple in some of her other stories, so I was interested in how they got together. H/h were instantly attracted, but alas, heroine is engaged. The rest of the story is the heroine coming to terms with her feelings about (a) her fiance (who is willing to pimp her out to the hero so his company can win a big construction contract) (b)the rakish, inscrutable hero (c) and what she'll do - or not do for love.

Book in the Chapman/Jerrard Series). Since she was John Saunder's fiancee as well as his secretary, Tamsyn owed him a double loyalty; and it was a loyalty that was to be sternly tested when they went to the South Sea island of Fala'isi to negotiate for a business contract with Grant Chapman, lord of the island. For the attraction between Tamsyn and Grant was immediate and incandescent.

Robyn Donald (born 1940) is a prolific writer of romance novels who lives in Kerikeri in Northland, New Zealand. Her first romance titled Bride at Whangatapu was published under the exegesis of Mills and Boon in 1977. Her books are printed 500,000 at a time.

Since she was John Saunder's fiancee as well as his secretary, Tamsyn owed him a double loyalty; and it was a loyalty that was to be sternly tested when they went to the South Sea island of Fala'isi to negotiate for a business contract with Grant Chapman, lord of the island. For the attraction between Tamsyn and Grant was immediate and incandescent. But it was an attraction that she must fight at all costs --- not only for John's sake, but because she knew that, to Grant, she would never be more than just another in a long line of playthings...

I had a hard time trying to get into this story. The h falls for the H even when she is engaged to someone else. The H is cruel to her and her feelings and she accepts this!!!! I couldn't see her accepting this behavior at all!

Tamsyn fought down the surge of emotion

Grant Chapman was rich, powerful and dangerous. They said he took his pleasures where he pleased. Tamsyn felt almost as if she were destined to hate this man.

But why did he affect her so deeply? Right from their first meeting she'd been unreasonably afraid of him. Was it really only the spell of the South Sea island?

Tamsyn checked her thoughts abruptly. She was here temporarily to do a job. And besides there was John. Surely it wasn't possible to be engaged to one man and desire another. Or was she just fooling herself...?

Spoilers************

This is a typical love/lust-at-first-sight book. Tamsyn's fiance, John, who is also her boss, wants to get a contract on the island where Grant Chapman's family has been like royalty for three generations. Grant's grandmother whom he lives with, thinks that enfianced people staying at the same hotel - albeit on different floors - won't go well with the conservative sentiments of the islanders so she insists that Tamsyn stay with her. During this time, Tamsyn fights her atttraction to Grant Chapman and on a few occasions has some intimate moments with him. When she tells her fiance in the hope of him insisting that she leave the house, John forgives her and convinces her that the information that she may get from Grant Chapman will be useful in getting the contract.

Eventually Tamsyn breaks off her engagement, while Grant Chapman is away in the U.S., and decides that she will go back home to New Zealand because she thinks that Grant Chapman would never love her. Her last day on the island, though, she gets trapped on a mountain in a tropical downpour and Grant, who has come back early from his trip, comes to rescue her. They realize their love for each other and all is happy.

There were two things that I liked about this book.

The first thing was how cool a woman Tamsyn is. She is naive sexually but very well adjusted. She's had a happy upbringing and a stable family to fall back on. Even confronted with her attraction to Grant Chapman she knows when to fight it and when not to. She doesn't cling to him, nor is she a doormat.

The other thing was that Grant Chapman is only(?) 31 years old. This is not a May-December romance and so there's none of the icky feeling of the hero taking advantage of the too-young heroine.
