Make Me Love You. This one sadly, doesn’t come close. The romance novels which followed in her example featured longer plots, more controversial situations and characters, and more intimate and steamy sex scenes.

The Highlander’s Accidental Marriage. Jan 06, maricar rated it really liked it Shelves: For a hundred pages, he wasn’t so bad. The prose and pacing of the plot just flowed so smoothly and effortlessly. I don’t think I liked any of them besides Lord Saxton, and I hated Christopher, but they still put on a good show.

She may not have refused them as strongly as I would have, but it still gave me hope that inside she knew what was right and there were more important things and people in her life.

The Secret of My Seduction.

The entire time that this happened, she was being chased relentlessly by Christopher, and though he was described as physically gorgeous and she secretly lusted after him, she was persistent in refusing his offers.

In fact, I have already purchased “Ashes in the Wind”, another book that received great reviews. It started off so well.

Despite everything going on around him and having to deal with a whole shitstorm of issues as a returning lord who’s suspected of murder, he really wanted a woman to “save him from his solitude” you might say, and Erienne oathleen beginning to realize that she might be okay with that.


Seton as a hero. And as long as I’m winted, I’ve got to say that if this is a typical example of the genre “bodice rippers”, I’m not sure if I’m ready for a while to read another book that uses the word “bosom” so often.

If you love Beauty and the Beast you would love this. Iwnter the two are met as one. View all 17 comments. At Kobo, we try to ensure that published reviews do not contain rude or profane language, spoilers, or any of our reviewer’s personal information. I have found my rose in winter.

As his small boat scudded before a brisk breeze under a sapphire sky dappled with cerulean clouds with indigo bases, through cobalt seas that deepened to navy nearer the boat and faded to azure at the horizon, Ian was at a loss as to why he felt blue.

Avery Fleming is desperate when he sells his daughter to the highest bidder. Published October by Avon Books first published I didn’t buy it.

Kissed by a Scottish Rogue. Although some Amazon reviews claim even the first few pages were annoying, I was pleased with them. Somebody sound the sociopath alert. Agreed, Stuart is all that exists, not that Seton Gaston-like fellow. Very few in this book weren’t perverts with one-track minds, and everywhere Erienne went, guys were peaking at her cleavage or hitting on her, all in ways that would merit a sexual harassment suit nowadays.

Holy cow, what a babe! The way I imagined him in my head was just funny and a little pitiable. I thought she was growing out of her tiny world before him; that just as Stuart helped her brother turn into a man and stop putting down himself and others, he was helping her become a woman who recognized character, not appearance.

I hope it’s okay to do this. Meanwhile, she had very unfounded repulsion for Stuart, even after the weeks he put in to being super careful and super sweet with her. Jun 07, Christy rated it did not like it Recommends it for: I’m not sure how a leather cover on his head brings about that much discomfort in someone.


When she was with Lord Saxton, it seemed like she and the story were growing up and earning some respect. As Christopher Seton was introduced, sending Erienne through the loop, I was beginning to smile to myself and enjoy their quite offensive interactions.

Retro Review – A Rose in Winter by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss

When it came to protecting winted, his wife, and his staff, he was not hit ros miss. Who puts someone through that just because they really want to have sex with them?! The cover was what made me read the book. Like, he got thrown off his horse at a great height and hit a tree and it tore off his breeches. The ‘mystery’ and the ‘grand reveal. The story started off strong but degenerated into a far-fetched, draggy fairy tale. You are ever in my thoughts, bending me, plucking at the fibers of my mind.

It created a very questionable air, as the man she had married was already enigmatic and elusive, and clearly after a serious dealing of justice. Most of the interactions she had with the rest of society were without her husband by her side, so another reason I loved their scenes together was that the crap all these youngsters put each other through was not even a reality at Saxton Hall. The first publisher on her list, Avon, quickly purchased the novel and arranged an initialprint run.
