My Review:

Nora Kehoe is 30 year old women who believes she doesn't need a man, children or even a picket fence that her overbearing mother is always harping at her.  After having a meal at her mom's and stepfather's house where her mother starts harping at her again she starts going on blind dates.

One night she ends up at a hospital where she meets Dr. John Blessing after a blind date has a allergic reaction to his dinner.  They are instantly attracted to each other and start dating (her mom is in high heaven) but after about four dates he starts to have a time table regarding their relationship including when to say, "I love you" and when they should get married, etc.  Man was he ever a control freak and I sure didn't like how he was such a gentleman at first and then he turned into this scary swearing maniac.  Nora started to lose weight, gave into demands and wasn't herself anymore. 

Nora has an encounter with Jean Marc a man she has known since childhood who was once a great friend.  Now all they do is fight every time they meet each other.  He's sexy, mysterious, smart and cunning who has always wanted Nora.  Jean has a twin brother Henri who also has a part in their storyline (has to do with cults, smuggling and a death of a young girl with her eyes destroyed.
