One Thing About Pamela Clare's, Unlawful Contact...

Loved the book, loved the heroine, loved the hero, and most of all, loved, loved loved the plot.  Hero sentenced to life in prison for murder,  having already served six years?  I knew this would be a different sort of romance.

Anyway, I’m not going to post a full review, because quite frankly I can’t be arsed, but I have to say one thing.  This heroine (who’s a savvy, smart journalist) would not have gone into a drug store (she was hiding out with the hero, who was on the run at the time)  knowing that she would be spotted by surveillance cameras, and bought the morning after pill.  She just wouldn’t.

That’s all I have to say on the book itself, but isn’t it flipping annoying when authors make their heroines/heroes do things that don’t gel with the their character arcs?

Here’s the blurb from Pamela Clare’s website:

Taken hostage by a convicted murderer while reporting at a prison, Sophie Alton has no idea that the man holding the gun to her head is the bad boy who was her first love in high school. Condemned to life without parole, Marc Hunter finds himself with no choice but to break out of prison after his younger sister disappears with her baby.

Though he regrets what he has to put Sophie through, he can’t let anything get in the way of his stopping the corrupt officials who are set on destroying what’s left of his family. But being near Sophie rekindles memories for both of them. As the passion between them heats up, so does the conspiracy to put both of them in their graves.

This despot has been allowed to murder thousands of Zimbabweans for years, under the nose of The West, with no retribution. He’s an evil megalomaniacal dictator who needs a bullet in his head.

He lost the first round of elections, but refused to give up power, and due to his expert intimidation tactics, managed to scare off Morgan Tsvangirai, leader of the only opposition to his reign. Tsvangirai bowed out of the run-off elections because he feared that the violence would escalate even more. In all honesty, I can’t really blame him, but somebody needs to stand up to this evil man.

On Friday, Mugabe held the run-off elections, unopposed, where supporters of the opposition party were allegedly forced to vote. He of course won, and will probably stay in power until he dies.

He’s been responsible for so many bad things that have happened in Zimbabwe, and it just feels wrong that he has been allowed to rule in such a tyrannical manner over the last thirty years.

I feel that it’s time for the UN to intervene.
