Book Description

Eyes of Silver, Eyes of Gold is a story of family conflicts set in Colorado in 1885. Anne Wells has embarrassed her rigidly proper family since she was a child with occasional but grievous lapses from ladylike behavior. They blame those lapses for the disgraceful fact that she is a spinster at 28. Cord Bennett, the son of his father's second marriage to a Cheyenne woman, is more than an embarrassment to his well-to-do family of ranchers and lawyers - they are ashamed and afraid of their black sheep. When Anne and Cord are found alone together, her father's fury leads to violence. Cord's family is more than willing to believe that the fault is his. Can Anne and Cord use the freedom of being condemned for sins they didn't commit to make a life together? Or will their disapproving, interfering families tear them apart? Kindle Locations: 4,846.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for Western Romance Lovers! June 3, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book in two days, only because I had to put it down the first night around 3 am to get a couple hours sleep. Wish I had started it earlier in the day! ;) This is by far my favorite genre, Historical Western Romance, but not all westerns fit into my favorite type of book. This one hit it dead center on the head. It was perfect! Enough motion in the side stories to keep you riveted to your seat, enough steam in the bedroom to burn your fingertips with out making you blush (slow till about the middle of the book), and a slow progressing love story that seems to be hard for most authors to get just right. But just right it was.

I loved the development of the main Character, Anne. Despite an emotionally stunted and controlled childhood... she's spunky and comes into her own with a vengeance. Not one to stand aside any longer (or really ever), she stands up for what is right and fights to protect what is hers. I LOVED that about her character. She did not, or would not, sit on the side lines while others defended her.

Cord, our hero of the story, is remarkable and misunderstood. He's silent and reserved and the whole time you want to scream at him to just open up.. but yet your drawn to his emotional silence just as much as you are to Anne's emotional openness. There are many reasons for his reserved emotional state.. from race in a time of un-acceptance, family misunderstandings and family tragedy. A character with depth beyond most characters, and I found him very intriguing.

The awakening of the two of them is beautiful, along with the awakening of their families. I recommend this book to anyone that loves a good solid historical western romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put this down... April 14, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't put this down until I finished it at 5 this morning. This is a romance that keeps on going. I loved the main characters, Anne and Cord. Not only is she is bright and spunky, but she stands up for herself and protects her loved one (unlike many female characters, who stand by and watch their loved one fight). I hope the author writes another like this, but I'll start it earlier in the day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can I have a 'Cord' to go, please? March 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book, and cried, and laughed, and sighed, and everything else you can think of. Then 2 weeks later, I did it again. And a week after that, (after reading some other painfully bad book and needing a pick me up) I read the good bits yet again. I loved this book, in my top 5 EVER of romances. The story of Cord and Anne is poignant, and uplifting, and funny and sad and I loved seeing how both of them, and their relationship grew. And seriously, where can I find a Cord? No really, can he be ordered from Amazon.....gift wrapped?

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly Romantic and believable October 10, 2011
By Lori
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I truly enjoy this book so much so I've read it twice. The characters are well developed and engaging. You wish the main couple were your friends in real life. The romance is beautiful and developes naturally as the main characters learn to trust themselves and those around them. This is not an easy task given the cruelty and rejection they have faced as individuals and as a couple. One of my favorite romances of all time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware! This is no 5 star book! Boring! July 3, 2014
By Red
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't understand all the great reviews for this book. One review even said it was too much erotica for her. Huh? There are exactly two love scenes in the whole book and they are totally vanilla plain jane sex scenes. They are boring actually. There is not kissing or touching hardly at all between the two main characters. You keep thinking there is going to be some reason to bring them together but it never happens. There is too much going on in this book with Cord's family. It overshadows any love story there might be. Even the horses get more story then Cord and Anne. His brothers continue to believe the worst in him and hate him at every turn. It is kind of stupid. I am so mad that I paid 2.99 for this book. It should be a free one or at the very least .99 Don't get me wrong I hate to say bad things about any author because I know they put a lot of time into these books but I also don't want any one else to fall for all the 5 star reviews either. This book had hardly any love story and was filled with so much other stuff with the brothers and horses that I found myself skimming through parts of it, ALOT. Sorry but I can't recommend this to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't believe I waited to read this!! January 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book based on the synopsis of it written in product description,over 3 months ago.Only after that did I start reading the controversy surrounding book/author. That had me thinking, Great, I just wasted my money and it probably won't be worth my time either.So I put it off.
But I kept going back to read new customer reviews and tried to ignore the negative comments on anything but the story itself.The overwhelming great reviews had me convinced to finally give it a try- I started it, and could not stop!! It had me from page 1!! The beginning was so intense and action packed that it set up the rest of the book nicely, so that you just have to find out if Cord and Anne overcome ALL of the unfair, cruel, and horrifying acts committed against them. Anne was so likable and Cord so strong that you could not help rooting for them the whole time.The authors description of everything took you back to this time like you were there. Do I know this author personally?? No.Would I recommend this book to other people?? YES!! I could not stop talking about it at work and told many of my kindle owning friends they must read it!
So if like me you have been hesitant to read it, wait no longer, you will not be disappointed in this wonderful book. I will definitely be reading more to come from this talented author.
