It's been a long time since I read a Harlequin book. I don't remember them as being quite so bad as this one was. The best part was the story of the long time farm employee who bested the arrogant Rans McQuade who thought he was too old to do the plowing with his mules. Unfortunately, McQuade's arrogance is treated as a positive character trait even to the point of his winning the lady's affections. This statement really made my blood boil "...all it takes is a little brute force to change you from a frigid wildcat to a sex kitten." All the men in this story from Lara's father to her two-timing husband are throwbacks to the bad old days and Lara would be much better off far, far away from them. I'm sure the real women of Mississippi would not put up with their behaviour. ( )

A New York Times Bestselling Author

This is the Mississippi novel in Janet Dailey's Americana Series - a romantic tour of America through stories set in each of the fifty states.

The honeymoon was over long, long ago . . . Lara Cochran had once been a happy bride. Then Trevor, her charming husband, had turned to other women. Divorce was unheard-of in Lara's family, but she didn't want one anyway. One disastrous marriage was enough; she was now safely immune from men - all men. Or so she thought - until she met Rans McQuade, the rugged and virile manager of her father's Mississippi plantation. But she knew she couldn't let herself get carried away. For that would mean making some dramatic, unwanted changes in her life. . . .

Every novel in this collection is your passport to a romantic tour of the United States through time-honored favorites by America's First Lady of romance fiction. Each of the fifty novels is set in a different state, researched by Janet and her husband, Bill. For the Daileys it was an odyssey of discovery. For you, it's the journey of a lifetime. Your tour of desire begins with this story set in Mississippi. Lara Cochran was happy before Trevor, her charming husband, had turned to other women. But, because divorce is unheard-of in Lara's Mississippi family, she doesn't want one. She doesn't want to open her heart to anyone ever again. One disastrous marriage is enough; she is now safely immune from all men. Or so she thinks. Once she meets Rans MacQuade, the rugged and virile manager of her father's Mississippi plantation, she fears she may not be as immune as she had hoped . . .… (more)
