Book Description

June 1 1984 Bed & Breakfast
One of the most beloved romance authors of all time, Sandra Brown creates love stories as defiantly passionate as they are richly emotional. Her "larger than life heroes and heroines make you believe all the warm, wonderful, wild things in life" (Rendezvous). Now the New York Times bestselling author of Tidings of Great Joy delivers an exquisitely sensual tale of a young woman's sudden, irresistible affair with a stranger--a man with a secret that could shatter her life.

Since the death of her husband, Alicia Russell has struggled to take care of her two young sons alone. Now fiercely independent, she is determined to never again depend on another person. But when a sudden storm threatens to ruin a family camping trip, Alicia finds it hard to say no to a stranger offering a night's refuge--especially when the man playing hero offers much more than shelter from the storm.

Handsome, sensual, and slightly mysterious, Pierce Reynolds showers much-needed attention on Alicia's sons--and reminds her, after so many years of solitude, how it feels to be desired. But even as he tempts her to explore her newly reawakened longings, he holds her at arm's length, his only explanation a silent refusal to share the secrets of his heart.

Torn by the fear that Pierce can't provide the emotional support she and her children deserve, Alicia returns to Los Angeles and struggles to move on without him. But when a crisis brings Pierce back into her life, Alicia knows she can't give him up again without a fight. Alicia has already learned that life comes with no guarantees. But can she convince the man who'd renewed her hope that love is a risk worth taking?

Tender, tantalizing, and never less than irresistible, Send No Flowers is one of Sandra Brown's classic romances, available in hardcover for the first time.

Setting: Contemporary
Sensuality Rating: 8

When an unexpected storm disrupts young widow Alicia Russell's camping trip with her two sons, she and the boys are rescued by a mysterious man who offers them shelter for the night. Alicia is reluctant to accept Pierce Reynolds's offer, but the ferocity of the storm and the resulting damage to her own cabin leave her little choice.

Pierce's attention to the boys wins their outright worship--and reminds Alicia how much her sons have missed having a man in their lives--while his sensuality rekindles emotions Alicia had thought were long buried. But as she gradually allows herself to explore her desires, Pierce seems determined to keep his distance emotionally for reasons he can't, or won't, explain.

Well written and sensual, this hardcover reissue of one of Brown's early entries in the Bantam Loveswept line holds up well given the time that has elapsed since its initial publication in the early 1980s. The plot device of enforced togetherness is somewhat tiresome, but longtime Brown fans looking for a hardcover edition of an old favorite might like to splurge on this one. --Lisa Wanttaja --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!! July 6 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The way Sandra Brown writes is wonderful. So far i have gone through a ton of her books and I have not found one I dislike.
With this one she portrayed the characters perfect. It was like you stepped into the story and where there with the characters. I loved it.
This one i have read more than once and it still wasnt enough.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh... Aug. 21 2002
By Too Old
Format:Audio Cassette
The story itself is a simply-written and sensual story. What absolutely ruins it is the horrible, awful job Alison Frasier does reading it. Her attempt at "voices" is like fingernails on a chalkboard. She makes Pierce, the main male character, sound like Larry the Lounge Lizard. She makes the children sound like cartoon characters and Alicia, the main female character sounds like a cross between Morgan Fairchild and Anna Nicole Smith. I seriously had to struggle to listen to the whole story, not because of the story itself, but because the voices were just so caustic. I know this review seems harsh, but beleive me, it's justified. I recommend you READ this book, and not LISTEN to it...you'll thank me!

3.0 out of 5 stars Well...... May 13 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a re-print of a former book and I believe that it was at the beginning of this talented authors career.
I buy Sandra Brown automatically regardless of the cover blurb. If you are looking for the intense story that is normally penned by this author you will be somewhat let down. It is still worth a read but it is not her normal brand of WOW.

4.0 out of 5 stars First Time March 9 2001
Format:Hardcover
This is the first SB book that I have read and it was alright. I finished the book in two days. The characters seem to relate to real people and their romance was extraordianry, she did a good job at explaining the scenes to the extent that i got goosebumps. I'm looking forward to reading more books by Sandra Brown.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother... Feb. 27 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sorry Sandra, but I couldn't even finish reading this book. I just read Breath of Scandal and The Alibi back to back and couldn't put those books down. Got up early in the morning to read them and stayed up late trying to finish them. So, I was really excited when I saw another Sandra Brown book on my bookcase that I hadn't read yet. I liked the first paragraph. After that, it went downhill fast. It seemed like she pumped this book out way too fast. It was too simple. The dialogue, the characters, everything was a flop. I had myself believing that I could have done a better job writing this than her. To go from reading one like the Alibi to Send No Flowers, I just couldn't believe they were written by the same person. Sorry, I couldn't even finish it. I do enjoy most of her work though and will read many more of her books.
