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.

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?


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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens claws.-Jim Morrison Oct. 6 2008
By Cherise Everhard - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Drea Rousseau has not lived a good life. At a very young age she learned about heartache and as a result has gone through great lengths to make sure she would never feel that again. Using her wits and her body she has spent her years manipulating men into getting what she wants and playing whatever role is needed.

As an arm-charm to a ruthless drug lord and criminal, Drea thought she had it pretty good. She had no delusions about what their relationship was or was not, she was just taking one day at a time always knowing the end was coming. One afternoon he surprises her by treating her rather callously and for Drea that makes the end of their relationship come a lot sooner than expected.

But even as she makes her escape life throws yet another monkey wrench in the works and Drea's life and outlook is irrevocably changed, forever. What once seemed so important isn't anymore and she works hard to make every moment of this second chance count.

I thought this book was incredible; filled with twists and turns and completely unpredictable. From page one it was clear that this tale was going to be daringly different from any other romantic suspense novel I have read. The two main characters aren't nice people and I really shouldn't have cared for either one, but the way they are written, despite their flaws, I felt and fell for both. These aren't two people that you expect to be stars in a romance novel, but it is their unique characters that make this book so great. Both had led shallow and selfish existences and aren't very apologetic about it. But with the second chance that Drea faces, they both rediscover life, one another and are struck by the power of love.

Truly a wonderful story filled with some heartbreaking, fantastic and miraculous moments; I loved ever word of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars On the fence May 6 2009
By MariaA - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Can't say I loved this book, but then I couldn't put it down, either. I had a tough time warming up to the heroine, and I don't think I EVER warmed up to the hero, and at some points, I even liked the bad guy. I found it a kind of confusing read, but compelling. If you love Linda Howard, you'll like it, but don't expect her usual fare here. If you really want to connect to the characters, then you have to go into it with the determination to forget everything you ever wanted a hero or heroine to be. I don't mind a flawed character (take Lily in Kiss Me While I Sleep--I loved her), but I wonder if maybe I would have made a better connection with the characters if there was more insight into WHY they were what they were. We readers like to rationalize. There was another old book of Howard's that left me with the same ambiguous feelings--I think it was Son of the Morning (now I have to go check...), but I love her writing so much and she does it so well, that I have to read every word she writes, and I wouldn't have wanted to miss this one. Go for it, just don't expect the usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Linda Howard novel ever! Dec 4 2008
By Lovesbooks - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I agree with Elaine (1st review on page) that this is definitely the best Linda Howard novel in history. In fact, I consider it to be up there with some her greatest books like Open Season and Son of the Morning, and in some ways, Death Angel is a little bit better. I hope to see more of this originalty in her works in the future. This particular book won't disappoint. It's got great steamy Linda Howard standard type of love scenes, romance, great strong and shrewd characters, especially the two main characters- Andrea and Simon, original plot with the likes of none seen before, great action and some justice in the end. This is a real page-turner and you literally will not stop until the end. Buy or borrow one today and you'll see what I mean! Caution: Make sure you have food and/or drink nearby because you won't be leaving the book until you're done!
5.0 out of 5 stars Staying True To Her New Style Aug. 21 2008
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's taken me awhile to except that LH is not going to go back right now to the truly dominant males since her Sarah's Child,The Mckenzie's and before, but now that I've excepted that,I find it interesting that with each new book she finds a different way to redeem a flawed male who's not what the romance world would classify as fantasy material and weave him into her style of writing,making you catch your breath with such emotion, you'll be wanting more when the book is finished, but you'll be glad you read that particular story. You'll find yourself waiting in anticipation for her next work. With this style which I noticed first in "Kill and Tell" she is still the best romance author I have ever read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Linda Howard Where Are YOU????? Aug. 13 2008
By K. Bloom - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I just had to add my two cents on this new book by Linda Howard. I use to love reading her older novels like "Mackenzies Mountain" for example and the other romances she is known for. However during the last several years Linda has tried to become a mystery/murder is not working.
The only reason I gave this story two stars was because the first part of the book was good and then it started to go down hill from there.
I have to say if you are looking for a Linda Howard romance, it is not happening in this book! There is hardly any romance at all. What a disappointment.
