Free-spirited and worldly, Jo Attenborough's modern notions of a woman's role frequently land her in hot water - but nothing like the heat she experiences under the penetrating gaze of a mysterious man...Reclusive cattle baron Flynn Ito has the heart of a warrior - and a reputation as a dangerous man. He protects what's his, and what he wants to possess more than anything is Jo. For he knows that once their worlds collide, every temptation and forbidden pleasure will be satisfied with the sweetest surrender...

4.0 out of 5 stars A force to be reckoned with March 20 2003
Format:Paperback
Sensual mistress Susan Johnson's third solo release with Brava sees her reverting to an unadorned romance casted with sharp characters. She subjugates her vulgar style to render poignancy in this sentimental ode to the power of love. Force of Nature summons back Hazard and Blaze from her popular Braddock-Black series along with Trey and Daisy as memorable side characters in this simple romance between Jo Attenburgh and Flynn Ito.
Jo is conceived between Hazard and former mistress Lucy. After squandering her coffers on a lover-boy, Lucy brings her reluctant daughter to exploit on Hazard's wealth. Jo is surprised by her honorable father and his magnanimous wife Blaze who treats her like their own despite her money-grubbing mom. It is Montana she meets the enigmatic rancher Flynn Ito of Japanese-Irish blood and the meeting converges into a lusty amorous interlude. The halcyon days are threatened by repeated sabotages from rival Empire Ranch run by profligate sons of London peerage, who resorts despicably to kidnapping Jo and outraging her modesty.
Readers will flinch at the graphic rape scene and Flynn's lack of tact and possessive rage. Yet all is forgiven under Johnson's careful sculpting of Jo as a graceful survivor and the confused Flynn humbled by the magnitude of his love towards Jo. She achingly lets readers into the bloodshed and solitude endured by the orphaned Flynn who embraces his love for Jo as a salvation.
Flynn's samurai heritage is scrupulously researched by Johnson as she delves into the exotic Orient, ronins and the legendary Musashi. It is at once an irresistible gravitation to Force Of Nature for Johnson's masterful narration, sensuous dialogues and the sweeping emotional core of a turbulent passion.

4.0 out of 5 stars delightfully blistering western romance March 1 2003
Format:Paperback
In 1888, Lucy Attenborough, accompanied by her daughter engineer Guiseppina better known as Jo, returns to Helena, Montana for the firs time in twenty-three years. For Jo this is her first trip to Big Sky Country having been raised in Florence. Her father, Native American Jon Hazard Black never knew he sired a daughter until he and his wife Blaze see Jo, who is clearly his child. Jon knows that Lucy is here for one thing only, money and tries to buy her off with a too generous yearly stipend. Lucy accepts, but her avaricious mind sees more cash flowing because Jon wants to know his daughter better.
At the Stuart Warner dinner party that Jo attends, cattle ranch owner Flynn Ito arrives. Flynn and Jo are immediately attracted to one another and go off together for a night of boiling lovemaking. As they become better acquainted in and out of bed, their original lure turns into love, but his enemies, including an English aristocrat, use her as a pawn to try to kill him.
Known for her pair of asbestos gloves requirement, Susan Johnson heats up the sheets with her latest historical romance. The story line engages the audience when Lucy arrives in town, but picks up action and momentum the moment that Jo and Flynn meet. Blisteringly passionate as the lead characters only come up for air when his enemies assault them, FORCE OF NATURE wraps the sex scenes inside a delightful western romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Susan's on her way back! Feb. 20 2003
By gayelle
Format:Paperback
This novel, IMO, signals another step in the return to good story-telling by Susan Johnson. To some extent, it is in the style of Blaze and Taboo; however, it is not quite up to the level of either. The promise of the opening is not quite fulfilled as Lucy Attenborough is the threat that never really materializes, and the Empire turns out to be a caricature of itself.
The Flynn-Jo story is a good one, and the reader can sense the temptation to reduce this romance to the common denominator that many of Susan Johnson's last few stories, bar the previous, have been. Temptation, notwithstanding, Johnson doesn't succumb, so there is actually a plot and a weaving in of this story with Blaze, Silver Flame, and the others of that set.
Force of Nature is a pleasant surprise and a good reminder that Susan Johnson still has what it takes to write a story with a plot and interesting characters that one can care about. Flynn Ito is a wonderfully reluctant and weary warrior, and that helps Force of Nature to fit into the the Braddock-Black storyline and even answers questions the reader might have about why do Flynn and Jo never appear in any of the other stories. Jo's character is consistent with that of the other women in the Braddock-Black series. She's a strong-minded career woman who is not shy about going after what she wants. Are they likeable characters? Yes, they are. Are they as memorable as previous Braddock-Black series characters? Not quite. Even though Jo and Flynn have a crisis towards the end of the novel, the distress they face as a result of the contributing circumstance could easily have been avoided. In that respect, it seems artificial.
The novel is a good one for those who like Susan Johnson, and I do. Worth the price? As proof that Susan Johnson is on the way back, it most definitely is. Buy it, read it, enjoy it.
