Man like Mac

A Man Like Mac (Harlequin Superromance #911) - Fay Robinson Pro - both the hero and the heroine are dealing with disabilities, and both are dealing with them differently - almost as if people with disabilities weren't some homogenous group and had individual personalities and reactions to things? Or as if your relationship to your self and your body would change or evolve over time? Who'd have thunk? Anyways, I liked both of the characters (even though the heroine was edging close to the TSTL line, at times), and felt like their relationship grew in a pretty realistic way. Con - I know that authors have no control over the cover art, but I'd just like to point out that not only is it a ridiculously cheesy portrait of a couple, but, in a book where there are two main characters with mobility issues there is a very clear picture of a staircase in the background. What the hell is that about? Stairs with a lift would've been nice - would've been, you know, true to the story and all. Or no stairs, that could work too... why are they there? Sorry: pet peeve... Good book though, for the most part.
