Erotic, yes! Worth reading, a huge NO! I am a die hard romance novel reader, and had heard Susan Johnson's name come up a time or two. So I bought one of her books (Silver Flame). I'm glad that I only bought one, because I do not see myself reading anything from her again. I agree with one of the other's review when she said that the first 3/4 of the book was great. But it went downhill from there. Trey was your typical arrogant "hero" and when he started belittling Empress every chance he got, I couldn't wait for him to get what was coming to him, but it never happened. After being treated so horribly I expected Empress, to at least hold him accountable for the way he treated her and the things said. It left me with the feeling that she was weak and spineless and had no pride whatsoever. Instead of leaving me entertained, it left me appalled. If you read this book be prepared for a huge disappointment in the end.
The hero and heroine fall into bed immediately upon meeting, which was simply too fast for my personal taste, but through the course of a few weeks, develop what holds the promise of being a sweet and lasting love. Then comes a long separation, and bitterness sets in. The last half of the book is them hurling hurtful words at each other while being unable to resist each others' bodies. The hero even goes as far as to call her a whore (he's one to talk with his womanizing history!!) which made him completely despicable in my eyes.
What I did appreciate was Susan Johnson's passion for research, which really shines through as it did in "Blaze." Sometimes I forgot that I was reading a romance novel because I was intrigued by the world of the story and its rich history. Although, this time around, I did tend to think that she was too wordy. A brief dialogue can drag out for pages to the point of forgetting what a character's response was in reference to.
If only the hero could have stayed the sweet and tender lover that he was in the first half of the book. His schizophrenic personality really ruined it for me.
Susan Johnson aka C.C. Gibbs has different publishers in the US and UK, hence the different titles and covers.
These are stand-alones, but most enjoyed if read in order:
Book 1: (Year 1865) Blaze (US) / Burning Touch (UK)
Book 2: (Year 1889) Silver Flame (US) / A Seductive Flame (UK)
Book 3: (Year 1891) Forbidden (US) / Forbidden Pleasure (UK)
Book 4: (Year 1896) Brazen (US) / Rapture (UK)
Book 5: (Year 1888) Force of Nature (US only)
TREY BRADDOCK-BLACK: Half Absarokee Indian/23 years/attorney-heir-playboy/$$$$/black hair/grey eyes.
The second book in series brings us the love child and heir to the Braddock-Black fortune and legacy. In true Susan Johnson fashion I'd describe the father Jon Hazard Black (book 1) as the playboy MAN alpha male hero and their son, Trey Braddock-Black as the entitled and unattainable playBOY alpha.
"His looks were the kind that women followed with their eyes; even men did with surreptitious dismay..."
Trey has been blessed (or cursed) with uncanny beauty; He is sexy, and indulgent and far too suave. Coveted by women for his looks and his fortune and hated by many for the very same he moves about with his bodyguards. This is his story.Read more ›
