Judith McNaught. True, Once and Always utilizes many of the stereotypes of older romance fiction. Victoria Elizabeth Seaton, raised in a modest cottage in America, loses her parents in a tragic accident. Most of the credit can be given to the characters, particularly the hero. Jason is domineering, unkind, and occasionally cruel. Years earlier, he was betrayed by his faithless wife, who abducted their small son, Jamie, and ran off with a lover.
