Book Description

When Bonnie McKutchen left her weathy husband in a storm of heartache and betrayal, she fled New York with nothing but the dress on her back. Eli McKutcben finally caught up with her in a Washington mining town, outraged to find his beautiful wife dancing for money in a gaudy saloon. Yet as his temper flared, so did his passion...for nothing could extinguish Bonnie's blazes once she set them. Tormented with desire by his every touch, Bonnie yielded to the wild delight of her husband's embrace. Time and again she vowed to resist, and was sweetly defeated. But with savage pride, she denied her love...even at the risk of losing him forever!

2.0 out of 5 stars not a keeper June 21, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I like this author and i was unhappy to read a book of hers that is filled with such unhappiness.I should have realized that i wouldn't like it in the first couple of pages when they talked of their marriage and why she was leaving him. I didn't like the hero and he didn't seem all that sorry for what he had done during their marriage. I am just not a fan of 'realistic' romances. I pretty much skimmed through this book and even then i didn't finish it. I got to the point when i threw it against the wall and was done with it.

Format:Kindle Edition
This is not a romance . Worst hero ever. He blames his wife for son's death and just leaves , cheats on her with countless women for years. Then he comes back , calls her a wh*** and blackmails her to get back together, no apology for cheating , humiliating her . And we are supposed to pay 13.62$ for this piece of unromantic trash. I read romance for nice feelings about a story, not to have a hero be so utterly disgusting who treats the heroine that way. This is one of the worst romance ( if we can call that a romance) I came across.

Bonnie and Eli had recently lost their son to illness. She tried to turn to him but he pushed her away and sought comfort in other women. Then he decides to go to war and off to Cuba. Bonnie returns to their hometown and Eli contracts yellow fever while in Cuba. A young girl takes care of him and in the beginning he believes it is Bonnie so he begins an affair with her. After healing he returns home to find that Bonnie isn't there and she has returned to their hometown. Bonnie has also divorced Eli and she has a young daughter. Eli later finds out that the little girl is his and wishes to reunite with his wife. It has been two years since they have seen each other.

This is the story of their attempt at reconciliation. The characters are likeable and I really liked the supporting characters they seemed to be funny and added some color to this story. When Eli returns to town Bonnie is sort of seeing Webb and this bothers Eli. Why didn't Bonnie start screaming about pots and kettles when Eli was upset at the thought of her being with other men?

I would have liked Bonnie to tell Eli how much his cheating and turning away from her in her time of need hurt her too but she didn't. I believed he was sorry for what he did though. He seemed to genuinely feel sorry and it seemed that they tried to put it behind them as they couldn't change the past. For some reason Eli wasn't able to handle the grief of what happened so he turned outwards. I liked that Forbes explained to Bonnie that men deal with grief differently, although he did seem disturbed that Eli was cheating on Bonnie too. I think that helped her to understand her husband. Without this insight by Forbes I'm not sure that she could have forgiven Eli.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance...... April 6, 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At first I didn't give this book a chance and quit reading it altogether. After becoming a huge fan of this author, I tried my luck again and have to say it was one of my most favorite books of all time. It was rather hard to follow at first, compared to the way Ms. Miller usually hooks her readers from the very beginning but it was WELL WORTH IT in the end. Twists and turns, suspense, romance, and as always a female lead that should make any woman proud. I highly recommend this book.

More About the Author

In January of 2006, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Linda Lael Miller left the Arizona horse property she's called home for the past five years and listened to the call of her heart. Packing up her work-in-progress for HQN Books; her dogs, Sadie and Bernice, and her four horses, the author of more than 70 novels bid farewell to her home in the desert and returned to the place of her birth, Spokane, Washington.
The daughter of a town marshal, Linda grew up in Northport, WA, a community of 500 on the Columbia River, 120 miles north of Spokane. Her childhood remembrances include riding horses and playing cowgirl on her grandparents' nearby farm. Her grandparents' spread was so rustic that in the early days it lacked electricity and running water.

As delightful as this childhood was, Linda longed to see the world. After graduating as valedictorian of her high school class, she left to pursue her dream. Because of the success of her author career, Linda was able to live part-time in London for several years, spend time in Italy and travel to such far-off destinations as Russia, Hong Kong and Israel. Now, Linda says, the wanderlust is (mostly) out of her blood, and she's come full circle, back to the people and the places she knows and loves.

Before Linda begins her writing day, she takes her first cup of coffee while enjoying the scenic view of the wooded draw behind her new home. The first morning there, a snowfall blanketed the pine trees, something she had missed in the desert outside Scottsdale. Still enamored with the people she came to love in Arizona, she says she will still set books in that starkly beautiful area, and, of course, in other stories the action will take place in Washington.

Devoted to helping others pursue their dreams, the author will launch her sixth round of Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women in May of this year. A talented speaker, she donates all her speaking honoraria to her scholarship fund. The stipends are awarded to women who seek to better their lot in life through education.

It's no wonder the protagonists in Miller's novels are women her readers admire for their honor, courage, trustworthiness, valor and determination to succeed, despite overwhelming odds. 'These qualities make them excellent role models for young women,' Miller explains. 'The male leads possess equally noble traits that today's woman would be delighted to find in her life's mate.'

The author traces the birth of her writing career to the day when a Northport teacher told her that the stories she was writing were good, that she just might have a future in writing. Later, when she decided to write novels, she endured her share of rejection before she made her first sale.

Although Linda has written successfully in other genres, she is best known for stories set in the West'stories like McKETTRICK'S CHOICE (HQN Books March 2006 paperback); THE MAN FROM STONE CREEK (HQN, June 2006 hardcover) and that very first novel, FLETCHER'S WOMAN, which is being reissued in 2006. Her stories, set in yesterday's world, and today's, are historical romances, romantic thrillers, and other contemporary tales. They consistently score on prestigious national bestseller lists.

Linda has come a long way since leaving her sheltered life in Northport at age 18 to experience the world. 'Growing up in that time and place, in a family grounded in Western values, served me well,' she allows. 'And I'm happy to be back home.'
