The plotline of women withholding their favors as leverage goes back to ancient Greece (at least). It gets a humorous and warm treatment in "Breathless" where the women of a small Georgia town go on strike to shut down the town's main tourist attraction - a whorehouse. The book focuses on the romance between Lily, leader of the women, and Daniel, lawyer for the owners of the brothel. Their history is bad but when murder occurs they find themselves on the same side.
While there is a healthy dose of "Americana" in this book, I enjoyed the political edge - suffrage and women's rights. Still, the best part of the book are the strong characterizations including several strong secondary characters. The plotting is probably the weak point as the book lacked a strong page turning quality. Still, a fun relaxing read even if it probably isn't a keeper.

Daniel infuriates me with his arrogance and his high-handedness. He wrongs Lily terribly, and when he comes back to town, he feels only a twinge of pity that all the people in town ostracize her because of HIS brilliant lawyer work. Then he proceeds to boss her around mercilessly, and at one point, he handcuffs her to a post because she stages a protest. What a man! Where's the line for more romance heroes like him? Sign me up for one!!! (sarcasm intended here).
Then, in the end, (what a wonderful man!) he gives up a promising political future for her. Gee. If he had walked into the library and I was Lily, I would've told him where he could shove his new library card.

Have not read a romance novel this good in a long time. The lead characters are so genuinely appealing and realistic. There is everything in this book, history, atmosphere, humor, drama, passion and love. I can't wait for her next book. It was the first book in a long time that I could not put down. Loved every word!

There should be another RWA RITA award in the future for Ms. Guhrke's newest romance "Breathless." The opening of this wonderful story grabs your attention and never falters throughout the entire book. The hero and heroine are real and multi-dimensional. The secondary characters as alive as your next door neighbor. "Breathless" delivers everything a reader looks for in a romance: style, grace, wonderful detail and a lively story. The romance is played out with warmth, humor and sensitivity. Bravo, Ms. Guhrke, I'll be looking forward to your next masterpiece.

I enjoyed this book and will look for more Ms Guhrke's books. The characters were good the story interesting. The dialogue was often funny. I just wish that the final conflict were not wrapped up quite so quickly.
