Typical Lindsey historical. Overblown emotional yarn with great characters. Quick read. ( )

This is not Joanna Lindsey at her best; like the little girl with the curl, when she's good she's very good and when she's bad she's horrid. Here she is merely predictable with rather boring main characters. There is no chemistry and little plot.
Not a keeper. ( )

Book description
Corinne Barrows's flashing emerald eyes bid men fulfill her any desire. She was the scandalous darling of Boston's gilded age. Sworn to revenge. Now she had sailed half round the world to Hawaii, to ruin the man who had ruined her ... who had taken her, despoiled her, and left her humiliated by her own awakened longings. Ravished by passion. Corinne hated Jared Burkett as deeply as she wanted his manly, sensuous passion. And Jared ached to possess Corinne, though she would force him to hurt her again. Their love, so violent, so reckless, would either destroy them, or give them completely to the wild abandon of tropical nights in paradise.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380776510, Mass Market Paperback)

Paradise Wild

A well-born Boston beauty, Corinne Barrows has traveled halfway around the world in search of Jared Burkett -- a dashing rogue and a devil; a honey-tongued charmer who seduced and despoiled her. . .and then abandoned the impetuous lady after awakening a need that only he could satisfy.

She has found him on the lush and lovely island of Hawaii. And now Corinne will have the revenge she craves: the total ruin of the blackguard who brought shame and scandal into her life. But Jared still possesses the power to excite her as no man has ever done--even as his own reckless heart is taken captive in their blistering war of wits and will--igniting a fire that could consume them both unless they surrender to it with wild abandon in the heat of the tropic night.
