    Fun story of a heroine who is convinced she is frigid after being traumatized by her first painful (physically and emotionally) sexual experience four years before. Her partner was a socially acceptable guy her snobby parents pushed on to her. Heroine is also convinced she is ugly based on her mother’s horrible comments throughout her life. She now works as a PA for our hero, a computer genius, and goes beyond the call of duty when the hero needs her to look after his orphaned niece and nephew [...]

    Re Capable of Feeling - PJ brings us a tale of hidden identities and sneaky motives with this one. She has got an h who thinks she is frigid but is really a sex kitten waiting to be jump-started and a sneaky Alpha H who is willing to don a beta nerdy disguise to get his girl. The h in this one is the usual PJ type, she is tall, beautiful and doesn't know it, and only wants to have children and a home but feels so inadequate due to past trauma that she thinks it is impossible. Her parents are hor [...]

    I've read this twice, with skimming. Each time I see a review I forget I've read the book which is not a great sign.Just re-read this and have to say that just once, JUST ONCE, (view spoiler)[I wish when confronted with the other woman, that the h would lay into her instead of falling into a twee, weepy martyr complex. No, sweetheart, go on without me. Save yourself. Option one, tell her fine, you can have the asshat. I don't want him anyway. He's cheap and he's bad in bed. This would be said, h [...]

    I miss Penny Jordan so much. She never disappointed me. Her books are full of angst and passion. This one was great. Lots of misunderstandings, jealousy, evil OM, evil OW and an alpha hero who pretends to be beta so as to win the heroine's love. :)

    Did I really just read a Harlequin Present book? Because Jon was so sweet, I could lick him all day.I wonder if he missed the classes of "How to be an Asshole Hero 101" and "How to Deliberately Misunderstand a Heroine and be a Suspicious Jerk" because he was very supportive of Sophy when dealing with her useless parents, and he totally believed her when he caught her with OM and that useless OM sprouting cruel lies. But he surely didn't miss "How to Blackmail a Heroine so She Would Do Your Biddi [...]

    I enjoyed this oned I would have rated it higher, but there were just way too many things going on that made this more complex than it needed to be. If the author had just stuck with the theme of frigidity along with a geeky (but very sexy) hero and evil OM, I think that would have been enough for me. But the heroines constant insecurities, evil OW who appears out of the blue, things that go bump in the night, parents that don't give a damn about their daughter, a near rape, and adopted children [...]

    this was a fun read! Sophy behaved like a gauche teenager! Jon was no beta! why did he marry her when he knew she found him physically unappealing!? Sophy was really the strangest character. she was sexless up until she married Jon and suddenly she discovered he was an attractive man ! lol. the kids only added to the fun side of things. they were outspoken and said the most inappropriate things which really made for some awkward situations in the book.

    A sweet, enjoyable read. Very “soap opera-ish”. The h is clueless. Her ex is an abusive ass. The H is sweet and adorable. He has a crazy stalker. The kids are precocious. An decent read with lots of “stuff” happening.

    Sophy thought she was incapable of love, not to mention she thought she was frigid as well. At least that's what her first lover Chris told her. She was confused and every time a man took her into his arms, she froze. She never thought she would get married but that all changed when her boss Jon asked her to marry him. At first Sophy was shocked, then Jon told her, it was for his niece and nephew, whom his deceased brother and law had fathered. Jon told her that they needed stability and a mothe [...]

    I really loved this book. I thought the love story was so sweet. I really like books with the Hero in love with the Heroine for a while and the need to prove himself. The problem for me in the story was the hero was too stand offish I wanted more of his real romantic self. I also wanted the Heroine to realize she was strong and showed it when she stood up for her husband. Real typical Penny Jordan, enjoyable!

    You've all read those TSTL heroines but how about a TSTL hero?Basic Plot: Sophy had a bad sexual experience with her first boyfriend so she became frigid and never had another. Her boss Jon says, "hey, we should marry so my kids are stable" and Sophy, thinking her boss is also sexless/asexual/frigid, agrees. But surprise surprise, he's not.Both of these characters I swear are so dumb that it's hard to break down the worst moments. Being written in the 70s doesn't let it off the hook.1. Jon marri [...]

    I enjoyed the concept of this story. Jon is a geeky, seemingly sexless workaholic who is caring for his niece and nephew and he needs help. So he asks his assistant to marry him. Sophy believes that she's frigid, but her only sexual experience was with a guy who was abusive and cruel. And yet subsequent attempts to find passion have failed because of her insecurities. So an unconsummated marriage of convenience seems the perfect solution. But being married to Jon, Sophy soon realizes that he's n [...]

    Silly and sexist. There is so much wrong with the tone of the book that I have a hard time reconciling the relative modernness of the setting with just how backwards it is. But it does deliver on the romance front. aread better; rating higher because I'm feeling prejudiced.

    Not too dated for a story that was originally published 30 years ago. The only thing that dates the story is the mention of a "typewriter". Other than the jealous fits Sophy kept having over other women in Jon's life, I enjoyed this story.

    While this book did not have the most original plot line. Jordan did a wonderful job of giving each charcter a unique voice. It made this book fun.

    really loved this one. Mr.Geek meets Ms. Dork.

    One of my favourite Mills and Boon romances. It pales in comparison to the racier novels of today but back when it was first published it seemed quite racy.
