Book Description

June 1 1984 Bed & Breakfast
From the beloved Sandra Brown, whose "storytelling gift [is] surprisingly rare" (Toronto Sun), comes this New York Times bestselling novel, an exquisitely sensual tale of a young woman's sudden, irresistible affair with a stranger—a man whose secret could shatter her life....

Since the death of her husband, Alicia Russell has struggled to take care of her two young sons alone. But when a sudden storm threatens to ruin a family camping trip, Alicia must rely upon a stranger for help. Before long, the man 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 how it feels to be desired. But even as Pierce tempts Alicia 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.

Alicia knows she can't give Pierce up without a fight. But how can she convince him that love is a risk worth taking?

Product Description

From Amazon

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 "Send No Flowers" Is A Dozen Roses! March 15 2000
By Dana
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First of all I have to say that I just sat here tonight and devoured this book in one sitting! I didn't realize when starting Send No Flowers, that it was a follow up to Breakfast In Bed. This story was about Alicia, who was suppossed to marry Carter in Breakfast In Bed. I enjoyed Alicia and Pierce both, along with Alicia's fiesty boys, Adam and David. The boys really added spunk to the book because they craved a father so bad and were young enough to say whatever comes to mind! It was nice to see Alicia meet a good man like Pierce after all she had been through. I must say though, that the "problem" that Pierce has is pretty much predictable, and you can pretty much guess how the book is going to end. And another thought I had is "where does the title Send No Flowers come from?". But definetely, Send No Flowers is another winner for Sandra Brown!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother... Feb. 26 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.

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!

I have read all of Sandra Brown's latest books since probably 1997, and this one is obviously one of her earlier novels, as she has come so far in her writing ability since this. However, her ability to write the eroticism surprised me, as none of her later novels contain this consistent display of sexual eroticism. These parts of the book were written with skill and were sensitive to the subject matter at hand. The rest of the book, however, was pure "fluff", and that's not what the Sandra Brown of today is made of. She has come a long way since this book, and I would not recommend it for a current reader of Brown novels. They would truly be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Send No Flowers April 6 2000
By Kath
Format:Audio Cassette
Yuck. This book was one big yawn from start to finish. I had read only one Sandra Brown previously (Fat Tuesday), and thought it was good, so I bought this audio book. I'm still wondering if it is indeed the same Sandra Brown! This book bears absolutely no resemblance to Fat Tuesday, and is instead a dull romance of the "his hungry gaze drifted down to her full breasts" type of book (not a direct quote, but you get the gist). Maybe the abridgement I listened to was a bad one, I don't know. I kept listening, waiting for something interesting to happen, but sadly it never did. I would NOT recommend this book to ANYONE.

2.0 out of 5 stars A reprint that shouldn't have been reprinted Dec 3 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is not one of Sandra Brown's best books. It was written in 1984 and probably when she first started writing. That's my guess anyway after reading the book. I suppose after so many years the authors/publishers think they can bring these older books out of the closet and reprint them, and then because of the author's name the younger readers will grab them up. It must work, I see a lot of it. But Brown would have been better off to left this one on the shelf. Because I finish a book when I start it, I read it all. I purchased it because of her name, but I think I've learned my lesson on reprints. Need I say more?

I actually got the book after reading the first chapter. I imagined that it was going to be an interesting, maybe even enthralling read. Though I must admit that the writer has a good writing style, I found the story very predictable. I felt that reading the first and the last chapter would have sufficed. There were quite a few times that I thought the story would take an interesting bend to the one that I imagined, but alas it went down the same road travelled by many 'romantic' novels. All in all it was a light read but too too predictable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, Sandra Brown is definitely the best! Feb. 10 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is one of the best Sandra Brown's books I have read. In the middle of the reading I discovered that this book is partially the continuation of another Sandra Brown's book 'Breakfast in Bed'. It tells the continuation of the story of the non-protagonist woman from the Breakfast in Bed book. It is, as always, such an involving and exciting story that you just can put the book down. I read it in two days. I strongly reccomended it. And, as always, Sandra Brown is an expert in describing romance and love scenes. She is the best!
