Matters of the Heart by Danielle Steel

This is one of those books where you just want to scream at the main character for being so stupid!!
Hope is divorced from Paul even though they still love each other. Paul has an incurable disease and didn't want Hope to have to deal with it, especially after losing their daughter to meningitis. (That did it for me right there, aarrgh!)
Hope is lonely despite being a well-known successful photographer, oh and of course, beautiful. When she meets Finn at a photo shoot, she falls instantly for his charm even though he's kind of a stalker and more than a little creepy. She ends up going to Ireland to visit him and he convinces her to have a baby with him and gets her drunk in order to make it happen. When she loses the baby, he berates her. Hope learns more and more about Finn, realizes that he is lying about many things and that he is abusive but STILL goes back to him. They are not married, she is independently wealthy, has her own career and a manager who keeps telling her how bad Finn is but she returns to him, Why??
I really didn't care much for this book and the language was terrible with many f-words, mostly towards the end of the book when Finn shows his true self. Rated R.
