5.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Read - From Title to Last Page, August 28, 2000
This review is from: Sweet Talking Man (Mass Market Paperback)
SWEET TALKING MAN definitely lives up to its title. When a handsome politician running for congress meets corporate giant Beatrice Von Furstenberg in a most unusual fashion, it is his smooth tongue that irresistibly wins her trust. Not an easy thing to do with a sassy suffragette.
When I first picked up this book, I wasn't sure I was going to like it. I usually don't buy romance novels with clinch covers, even when they are somewhat tastefully done -- as is the case with SWEET TALKING MAN. In any event, as soon as I started reading, I was pleasantly surprised. And I could not put the book down.
Betina Krahn is a newly discovered author for me, and now that I found her, I plan to read more of her work. Her writing is crisp and fresh. Everything from the dialogue to the mannerisms of her characters flows musically and with a realism that never seems contrived. But the most noteworthy prase I can offer Ms Krahn is the intelligence that practically radiates off the pages. Here is a writer who showers her prose with unique historical issues and cleverly blends it with modern-day morals. And it is so nice to read a historical romance that doesn't involve castles!
I have to respond to Shawna Ianne's review. I do not see how you missed the chemistry between Conner Barrow and Beatrice Von Furstenberg. From the minute he walks into the "dungeon" and sets his eyes on her, you can almost hear their breathing quicken. In fact, Ms Krahn is a master at building chemistry before the hero and heroine ever take off a stitch of clothes. The way Conner looks at Beatrice. And the way he TALKS to her! How could you have missed that? Those were the best parts!
As to the ending, how insightful to move ahead to present day. I loved it. Beats the typical ending that I can always predict. In fact, this is the first novel in a long time that I've read every word on the last few pages.
Thanks Ms. Krahn, for the entertaining read!
