While this story was full of adventure and mystery, the romance wasn't as strong due to these two elements which constituted almost the entire plot. I still thought Casey and Damian made a cute couple, but do wish there had been more of an emphasis on them romantically. The ending also seemed a little rushed and for that I wish there had been an epilogue. Overall however, it was still a thoroughly satisfying and thrilling read, with never a slow or boring moment from start to finish.
"All I Need Is You" takes place in 1892 Texas, and is the second of two books in the "Straton Family" series and was originally released in 1997. It's definitely a must read for those like me who've read and loved "A Heart So Wild" which is a five star story in my opinion and features Casey's parents, Chandos and Courtney. And if you haven't already, I would highly recommend reading both books in this delightful series which were fast, fun, and completely entertaining historical romances =)
Lindsey tells a good story, but I had some issues with the hero and heroine that I must mention. First, how can you like a hero who introduces himself as something, something "the third"? What an uppity arrogant man! It was hard to believe he could get over himself in a few weeks in the Wild West, but we are asked to believe that. After he realizes that the "Kid" is a young woman, he uses the pretext of a fake marriage to take Casey's innocence with no intent to make her his wife because she just wouldn't fit in to his high society life in New York. That made him a cad plain and simple. I don't care if he later changes his mind. Then there was Casey. What happened to her dream? Once she falls for Damian, all she wants to do is get married. Ugh!
If you can get over those issues, it's a sometimes entertaining read and includes a bunch of outlaws and bad characters that Lindsey portrays well. And there's a fair bit of mystery. Still, it is not as enthralling as the Indians and the love story in the first book. It did not hold my attention as well as Chandos' story either so I'm giving it 3 stars.
She captures the reader and leads them on a wonderful journey of ups and downs,
the intrigue and suspense, She has a way of pulling you in and not letting go
she leads you to romance and always the "Happy ending "
Why else do we read these stories because we enjoy the fantasy and the thrill of knowing
Fairy tails do come true thru books and movies... :)
Not sure which ones right off hand that are part of the Mallory Family series but .. so far all of her books are awesome reads..
