    Re Settling the Score Sharon Kendrick completes her Revenge is Sweet series with both an H and an h who are out for revenge against each other.The H is the forerunner of the SK s The Playboy Sheikh s Virgin Stable Girl Sheikhy Man Stud and Greatest Lover Ever H but he isn t a sheikh, he is a big time business guy who is illegitimate, came from seriously depressing poverty and worked his way up to a big time Lady Lovin Mega Rich Businessman with a HUGE thing for the h in a very stalkerific way.The h has her own set of issues She is a unicorn grooming widow who married the H s BFF five years earlier in a bid for security Her mother was a notorious pay to play alcoholic who still jumps from one punter to another and when the h met the H s BFF, she married him because he made her feel safe The h and H met in the lift on the eve of her wedding to the BFF There was a mechanical malfunction and the H and h have an Almost Purple Passion Unicorn Grooming License Revocation that is comparable to a Miranda Lee love scene.When the lift starts working, just in the nick of time, the H and h realize who the other person is her the bride to be and he the best man and it sets off a five year long mutual antagonism that is thwarted by the uncontrollable lurve force mojo sizzling between them.The H is furious that the h is such a gold digger that she still married his BFF, denying him the physical satisfaction of being his personal tart and the h is outraged that this H still believes she is available to hire as a penthouse popsie with just anyone and that he feels free to judge and punish her for that The h s husband died of a fatal disease and in the aftermath, the h refused to accept any of the BFF s dwindling inheritance and started her own event planning business One very happy Royal Prince later and the h s business is booming High Society just cannot get enough of her party planning events.So the H lures the h to his exclusive estate house on SK s fictional wealthy gated community Ostensibly it is to plan a big dinner party for a man and his wife who have some land the H wants to purchase, but really it is an excuse to show us the first two couples in the series and to allow the H to finally get his hands on the h.The tart shaming on this is massive and the bickering between the two is intense but very well done Neither the H nor the h can forget the other one, so while the h knows the H has a nefarious scheme to pay back what he feels is her betrayal of himself and his BFF, the h is determined to get this obsession with the man out of her mind and body.The h is also still grooming unicorns, and she has a little revenge by virginity of her own payback in mind We get a nice little update on the other couples in the series, they are all happy and lurvin it up and the other two couples are united in their belief that the h is a very nice girl and not remotely the male buffet sampling type that the tabloid press would have us believe When the h got the party planning event for the foreign Royal Playboy Prince that launched her business, there was a lot of rumors that she was either his girlfriend or his mistress It wasn t true the Prince and the h kept things very professional, but the tabloid rumors certainly did not hurt the h in this instance, except with the H, who believed them of course When the dinner party ends abruptly because the man selling the land in the North of England has a family crisis, we get to see another side to the H We learn that he is a Geordie from Northumbria and lost his accent along the way.The guy selling the land was prejudiced against the H at first because he thought he was a Soft Southerner shades of Gaskell s North and South but when the H leapt into action to get the man and his wife back to attend the family crisis, he changed his mind about the H and decided to sell.We learn the land the man was selling is a rundown industrial and housing area that the H wants to revitalize in a bid to give back to the community he grew up in This makes the h realize that there is than money making and womanizing schemes to the H and she falls a bit in love with him.But there is still the H s overarching prejudice and bias against her plus the fact that he NEVER once asks her for her side of the story and judges her based on tabloid innuendo and a private investigator report The H also never discussed the h with his supposed BFF, instead he avoided them at all costs after the wedding and never even contacted the BFF when he was dying or came to the funeral The h bitterly resents him for that, because her marriage to the BFF wasn t easy But she couldn t leave the man his elderly and deteriorating mum had to go into full time care and he had no other friends or family left We find out that the h told him about the lift experience with the H and the BFF guilted her into marrying him anyways he had no intention of ever consummating his marriage to the h, he couldn t physically do so and he needed a caretaker in his illness.After the interrupted dinner party both the H and h s treacherous body syndrome is getting the better of them The h decides that she is going to feed the fever and while she rejects the H s offer of a boudoir romp in his bed, she tells the H that the couch will work quite nicely.We get a full on Lurve Club Tower of Power Purple Passion extravaganza and the H is utterly in shock at the h s virginal status in the middle of it The h urges the H to continue on and in the aftermath, she prepares to leave, but the H confesses he loves her.The h is shocked, but the H does a pretty decent plea for clemency and the h explains about her first marriage The H is suitably outraged that his BFF treated the h so callously and he proposes marriage while carrying the h off to his bed.We get a lovely epilogue with the H and h getting married and little HEA moment for each of our couples The H remarks that the h is only lady to tell him off and he kinda likes it that way, so we are assured that the h is the H s equal and can take our leave of SK s exclusive estate, secure in the knowledge that once again True Love has saved the day.This one is well done, tho I have to warn you I enjoyed this in a very black humor sort of way The h deliberately playing up her supposed tartiness to punish the H with her virginity loss is probably one of the macabre revenge plots out in HPlandia But I am weird enough to think it was funny, especially since it was OBVIOUS these two were just crazy for each other and fighting it The follow up with the other couples was also well done and overall, this was an entertaining HP outing and worth the read if you see can the funny side of it.
