This is the story of the slow, painful reformation of a rake. Upon her father's death, Arlie is placed under the guardianship of Dominic, a man her father had met only once, and the unexpected responsibility of having to look after another's interests, pushes Dominic to rethink his way of life and his selfish ways. This story includes many different levels of infidelity, even after Dominic seems committed, and frankly I found it depressing. Arlie seemed so smart in the beginning, questioning all the right things and keeping her distance, but she ended up digging herself into a position of dependency and helplessness. Despite the happy ending, which was the one saving grace, for me, this story rode a little to close to the real problems to be faced when falling for such a womanizer. Perhaps, those with fewer qualms about infidelity type themes, would find this more enjoyable. It was well written and the characters had great depth, just a little too real for me.
