Domineering, arrogant, manipulative male character. Admirable heroine until she proves herself to be a doormat toward the end. Frustrating. ( )

You met Robert in Duncan's Bride, now you get to read his story. Not as non-stop-readable as DB, but about as realistic. This isn't a love story in extremes, but it's not a ho-hum everyday adventure. Also, includes an embezzler (which makes me wonder just what Linda Howard was up to when she wrote The Cutting Edge and LE). ( )

Robert Cannon's taking the DIY route to uncovering the traitor selling his company's secrets to international competitors. Marina owner Evie Shaw doesn't know she's a suspect, but she knows there's more to Robert Cannon than meets the eye. Remote and uninvolved romantically since her husband's death twelve years before, she falls hard for the strong, darkly handsome man in complete control of himself and everything around him. But when the dust settles, is love enough to save them both?

Fluffy, predictable and escapist. ( )

I loved the intensity in this novel. The main character, Evangeline, was memorable and easy to love. The reader feels like he/she knows Evangeline at the end of the novel. That said, I don't like how Linda Howard's characters, especially the girls, have to constantly be submisssive to their male counterparts. The main character, as with all of Howard's novels, submitted to her soon-to-be husband who had no trouble betraying her towards the end of the novel. Although this is a good ending, I would hope to see more fire in a normally energetic, willing-to-fight character like Evangeline. This book is good for young adults/adults (females). ( )

I read this bundled with Raintree: Inferno and boy was it an 80's/early 90's Romance. He is so alpha it isn't funny but she's willing to give up EVERYTHING she holds close because that's what he wants. Feh.I disliked the ending and the chest beating machismo of the male main character. I liked her and her strength up to the end but ended up wanting to ask her what she was going to do when she looked back on her life and saw what she sacraficed for him. ( )
