Another great book by Edith M. Dell, one of her best romantic stories, I've always loved it. Dell's work is a perfect example of a love story - wildly romantic without ever getting pornographic. Fast paced, breathless, REAL men, seeking REAL woman, women being swept off their feet, yet who are in control - well, not always ;) - it's hard to believe she wrote this so long ago, but perhaps those were the days when passion, love, excitement were REAL!
Some plots involve, abduction, and attempted forced seduction but these will end with redemption and happiness. These novels stand up so well to the test of time, which makes one want to get lost in the world of Dell!
The writing is excellent, the characters believable in their actions, (except that why can't we all find men as believable as these?) and the story line and plot just as or more exciting eighty years after it was written. It's a romance but far better written and imagined than what we can find in the current crop of romance novels.
Really, really romantic and passionate! You can't go wrong read it - you'll fall in love again and again!
