2.0 out of 5 stars Eh June 2 2009

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am usually a very big fan of Linda Howard but I have to say that I was really disappointed in this book. It was not up to her usual standards at all. It was interesting but it did not seem to flow quite like her better books have and the emotions that she is good at stirring up was very absent when I read this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wow, does that suck July 25 2008
Format:Hardcover
I have been a fan of Linda Howard's book for awhile now. Linda has been writing for a very long time, but her stories seem to have progessed with the times.

Until now.

Drea lives with a *bad* guy. The books opens with him making a deal with an assassin. To seal the deal, the assassin demands sex with Drea. The *bad* guy complies and leaves Drea alone with the assassin.

In the 80s, rape fantasy seemed to be a huge part of story telling in romance novels. I honestly thought that authors had gotten past this and realized that it is not every woman's fantasy to be raped.

The books launches into a 19 page description of their sex. Was it lustful? Yes. Was he a giving lover? Yes. Did she want him in the end? Yes. Was it rape?

YES.

Could she say no? No. Could she walk away? No. Did she have a choice? No.

Jeez already! Enough! Women writers should know better by now, especially women writers. Even better! By the end of the 19 pages? She is begging him to take her with him.

Now, I am sure that if I continued to read the book, I would learn that they somehow meet up again and fall in love and blah, blah, blah.

It was rape. It wasn't consensual. She was forced to do it.

I know I have written that word too many times, but I am so tired of female writers writing this junk! This was also a huge fantasy that soap operas in the 80s liked to incorperate into their storylines. Sure, the big brute raped her at first, but later she came to love him. He was troubled, so it was o.k.

I cannot imagine, in the real world, any woman ever being raped by a man and later loving him, unless she was mentally unbalanced.

Anyway, I stopped reading the book at that point. I have nothing to recommend about this book.
