And I CAN believe that Karen fell for Marc Chastain so quickly. With her mother's recent death, then having to travel to New Orleans to deal with identifying her estranged father's body, and THIS MOUTHWATERING SOUTHERNER takes charge to assist her with making Dad's funeral arrangements? Heck, I'm not under any of that stress and Marc hasn't given me a shoulder to cry on and I'm already in love with the guy.
I had a friend in college who met and married her husband within a week. They were in their late 20s/early 30s and had two kids when she went back to University to get her degree and I almost had to wear a flame-retardant suit whenever I was in the same room with 'em. No icky PDA, but just that much chemistry between them. So yes, you and I may not have experienced what Karen and Marc do but it DOES happen.
Someone reviewing another author said that some of these reviewers need to get a real life instead of getting off on having their reviews posted on Amazon. That about sums up the way I feel about a lot of folks who really slam a writer's work.
We can agree to disagree; different strokes for different folks. But, people, as a newspaper editor I know how difficult it is to fill up a page with words and there are very few instances that I'll slam someone who's giving it the good old college try.
Linda Howard works her [...] off and it shows in every one of her books. If you don't like it, don't buy her stuff. But don't feel as if you're performing some Mother Teresa act of charity here by posting your catty remarks here.
Well-known for her too-gritty, diamond-in-the-rough heros, the author has instead crafted in Marc Chastain a tough, yet startlingly tender hero.
The story begins with heroine Karen Whitlaw and her estranged father Dex, an ex-Viet Nam sniper determined to blackmail someone from his past. Karen, grieving the recent loss of her mother, travels to New Orleans at the behest of Detective Marc Chastain when informed of her father's death.
What follows is Karen's reckoning with her ambiguous feelings about a father who deserted her as a child, as well as her journey into sensuality with Marc. Meanwhile, sinister forces from her father's past seek to destroy Karen and the book her father held over someone's head.
Kudos to Ms. Howard for creating Karen as a self-sufficient woman able to protect herself from the killers by using her intellect and physical strength. When Karen finally does seek protection by returning to Marc, she is clearly an equal partner in their attempts at survival. Additionally, unlike many of Ms. Howard's heros, Marc is neither too rough or forceful in his passion, nor bent on doing what he considers is best for Karen, regardless of her thoughts.
Unfortunately, the book is so short as to be considered incomplete; it's only 300 pages (just 50 more than a series romance novel such as Silhouette Intimate Moments), and nearly half of the story is dedicated to interaction among the secondary characters. There is not nearly enough interaction between the hero and heroine, and I would have appreciated another hundred pages or so of this positive love story, which is a change from the author's often grim stories.Read more ›
