This review is from: White Fire (Paperback)
I've starting reading Fern Michaels "Whitefire", can I just say how much I am really hating this book. I will probably not even finish it. I'm not a squeamish person but this book is horrible. It contains rape, not forced seduction. The hero has no redeeming characters as far as I can determine.

*****SPOILERS*******
This is a direct quote and mind you this takes place on page 18 of the book: "She felt a reeling blow to the side of her head, and then Katerina knew no more. Banyen took her brutally, savagely, again and again. Spent, he staggered to his feet and stood looking down at the naked body of the young girl. A pity he couldn't see her what she really looked like in the ebony night. His own words rang in his ears...I'm not a cruel man....I'm not one to inflict pain. He shrugged. Every man was forced at one time or another to tell a lie. Why should he be any different." Awww, isn't he just a great guy. Onward and upward, here is another quote from our sweet, manly hero, "He would rebuild his estates and get married and keep his wife pregnant nine months out of every year. He would have a mistress in his house and one in town for the awkward months" Argghhh, I'm not even out of chapter one at this point, and the book has met the wall about 3 times.

If this is your cup of tea, go for it. But I did want to give warnings on this book for those of us who don't like this type of book.

Another, thing that is bothering me about "Whitefire" is that it has been reprinted twice. I mean WTF? There are so many much more worthy books to republish, why this one? I still don't know and I'm scratching my head in puzzlement. The only thing going for "Whitefire" is the time period and location, Russia during the reign of Ivan the Terrible. I will be very happy to never have to read another of these type books again, they really make me feel dirty and disgusted. Thank God romance books have progressed away from this crap.
