Product Description

About the Author

Radclyffe is the pen name of a self-avowed romantic who proudly traces her creative roots to the era when lesbian pulp-fiction was born. In keeping with those classic works, her idea of a good read is two strong, sexy, independent women who meet, fall in love, and live happily ever after. If there's a little action, angst or anguish along the way-all the better! She attributes her awakening to the wonderful world of web-fiction to X-File ScullySlash. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Although her earlier novels were often uneven in quality, Radclyffe's writing has been steadily improving through the years and ABOVE ALL, HONOR is one of her best efforts. The characters are vivid and engaging and the plot is tightly focused, with a forward momentum that keeps you turning the pages. In lesser hands, I would complain about the short length of the novel -- too often a warning you're about to read a lesbian romance that doesn't rise above "girl-meets-girl so who needs a plot?" -- but there are no wasted words, no pointless scenes. The result is surprisingly satisfying -- less fat, more filling.
I've never understood why Radclyffe's works haven't been picked up by an established press -- she is easily the equal, if not the superior, of many of the published authors successful in the lesbian romance genre (which is too weak in quality to afford such an oversight). I can only hope that her works, now available in print form, will continue to grow in popularity as readers discover what they've been missing. For those of us who stumbled upon Radclyffe online, the public recognition can't come too soon. I've ordered print copies of several of my favorite titles so I can indulge in the pleasure of re-reading them sitting in an armchair, rather than hunched over my laptop.
If you like the books of writers such as Karin Kallmaker and Peggy J. Herring, then chances are very good you'll thoroughly enjoy Radclyffe as well.

Format: Paperback
"Above All, Honor", Radclyffe's first in a series involving the President's daughter and the Secret Service agent assigned to head her security team, is a tale of forbidden desire set amidst today's world of political turmoil and public fixation with celebrities. Combining the complex characterization and stark eroticism we have come to associate with Radclyffe's romances, "Safe Harbor", "Love's Melody Lost", and "Innocent Hearts", with the kind of taut, tight plotting required of an outstanding action thriller, "Above All, Honor" fulfills every desire.
Blair Powell, the only child of the nation's leader, resents the intrusion into every corner of her private life of those charged to protect her and will do anything to preserve her independence. With the added pressure of protecting her father's political image in a world where image could determine the outcome of the next election, Blair struggles to keep her true passions from the world. Cameron Roberts, the agent reluctantly assigned to guard her, is tortured by secrets of her own. When a threat to the First Daughter's life brings emotions to a boil, they are forced to confront their mutual desire.
As always, Radclyffe's prose is lean and sharp, lending itself well to the staccato pace of an action thriller shot through with the soaring romance which is the hallmark of her fiction. Timely, intriguing, and ultimately satisfying to both the intellect and the senses, "Above All, Honor" is a fitting entree into the world of politics, forbidden passions, and hidden dangers inhabited by an unforgettable cast of characters.

By A Customer on May 16 2004
Format: Paperback
Other reviewers are right -- there isn't really anything like the Honor series out there and when I want to escape into a fast-paced action world, I will pick up the Honor books to take me away. I am glad the author revised this book (though it irritates to buy multiple versions of the same work in the same way that it irritates to have bought a DVD only to discover a short time later that a "director's cut" is going to be released) because this version *is* better than the first. I think it reflects a new artist's creative energy honing itself over time. Let's face it, some of our best writers in romance have gotten better over time, especially those with a number of books already produced and more on the way.
Since the other reviews of this book are accurate I didn't see a point to adding my 5 stars, but I was surprised that anyone would suggest that if I happen to like another writer then I haven't read Radclyffe. Well, I have read Rad, plus lots of other writers. I see no reason to pick between them, or refuse all others just because I might have a favorite. That's just plain silly. Rad isn't my favorite, sorry my heart belongs to another, but she's on the list of writers I will *always* buy, and that's a pretty short list.
Given the struggles of our bookstores and publishers and writers today I think everybody should buy as many books by as many writers as they can afford. Why be exclusive? I think it's great to have a number of talented writers in the romance genre, each giving different flavors. Radclyffe writes an action-thriller-romance-sexy tale with a blend that is all her own (and this series is the best example of that) and sets her apart from the banal. Other writers do what they do in their own way equally well. If you limit yourself to just one writer you're missing out on some great books and wonderful entertainment.

Format: Paperback
At first, I was not too sure about a Secret Service story etc. However, I was overly impressed by the quality of the details and the depth of the scenario. Having read the complete series and other series from Radclyffe as well, this one is defenitely my favorite. Blair is a very intense character and you fall in love with her right away. Cameron has a tough personality yet, she discloses alot of her emotions and they make such a good match. This book is very intriguing at the very beginning of the few first pages.....Just love it!!!!
