Another great Johanna Lindsey book. There hasn't been one book of hers that I have not loved. I know when I get one of her books that I'm getting something worth my money and that I'll re-read later on and enjoy the second or third time I read it.

Had a hard time putting it down! I love the comical childhood flashbacks of the main characters.... And even though you knew they would overcome obstacles to find love together, it was a super read, keeping you laughing and anticipating their love!

I have been reading Johanna's books for over 35 years. The first one I read was Captive Bride and have been a fan ever since. I look forward to her new books and start watching for them to be released.

Ok so Amanda the bad whiny twin and marian the sweet good twin. So I read this on the back cover and tbink to my self here's a story with great potential aftera all its written by johanna Lidnesey. I was so wrong what ever potential this storyline had was completly skipped over. I have read plenty of shotty books befor, however i never the need or compulsion to committe on one untill this very moment. Do you know i honestly ended up liking the story line between Amanda and Spencer better than Marian and Chad. Amanda was supposed be so bad and spoiled however the worst thing she did was lie about her and chad and marian let her do that so that was marians fault. Amanda whined and through tantrums so what she hurts some guys feeling who are to dense to notice the real Amanda so i go and do what make myself look like a spenster to protect some future guys feelings. Oh yeah that made real sense. What happend to the old Johanna Lidsey who wrote stories you couldn't put down, this felt totally rushed nothing was flushed out not the storyline or the characters. I would not buy this book wait and check it out at the library if you must read it don't waist good money.

"A Man to Call My Own" did not rank high on my great romances list. In fact, it is mediocre compared to some of Johanna Lindsey's other Western romances, like "Angel" or "Heart of Thunder." It can't even come close to competing with "Savage Thunder," JL's best Western romance and best novel EVER.
It did have likable characters. Marion has gumption, especially in standing up to her obnoxious twin sister, Amanda. And the hero Chad has his moments of wit and interest. But they aren't fiery together. Alone, they aren't even that interesting (Colt Thunder or Chandos - two of JL's hottest Wild West heroes - could probably have entire novels about them ALONE, and I'd read it).
I think the problem with "A Man to Call My Own" is in the narration. JL spends a lot of time saying this or that happened, but never describes the actual scene. For instance, pivotal to the plot is a train robbery that happens early on in the novel, but JL devotes perhaps two sentences to the entire event. She also says Amanda's a bitch and Marion is the sweet, sensible one, but we don't get too many scenes involving this. Just the statement. If JL devoted more time to fleshing out the characters, I would have warmed to them. As is, they are not that memorable. In fact, not a single scene in this novel stands out as great or exciting, which is a shame, since it had such potential with certain events and meetings.
The other problem is that JL devotes this story not just to a happy ending with Marion and Chad, but also with Amanda and her beaux, AND with the twin's aunt and her beau as well. The ending is too tidy for me, too gooey happily ever after, especially following the not-too-intriguing storyline involving the dad's death.

Sorry Johanna, but there is no plot here -- none. There is no lust here -- none. There is no ROMANCE here -- none.
It is the story of two identical twins. We have the good twin and the evil twin, but what twin is what twin? Ah, yes, use the secret number code. Whatever was I thinking? The first twin, Marian, for personal asinine reasons, chooses to don a dreadful disguise. She is rude, indifferent, and boorish to our hero. The second twin, Amanda, is beautiful, spoiled, and shameful. Our poor, poor hero, Chad Kinkaid - whatever is a man supposed to do? Fear not, Chad's sixth sense kicks in and he knows Marian is the one! Why? Who the devil knows? Certainly not this reader!
Now the book's strategy -- Chad is aroused, when he attempts to teach Marian how to ride a horse. He drags her into the hay mow, and well, one thing leads to another. But wait, which twin is she? He thinks he knows, but no, he doesn't, or does he? Confused? So was I.
There is no story here -- none. The book's copy is double spaced and essentially blank pages complete chapters. I read the hardcover in one day -- not because I couldn't put it down -- simply because there is nothing here.
To be effective, the romance should have been explored more. Maybe explain how Marian wins Chad's affections. Perhaps have them spend time together. Or possibly, show Marian being kind and compassionate to another person, maybe the cook or the cook's daughter, or some pathetic ranch hand -- while Chad quietly observes. However, just to inform the reader that Chad knows she is his soul-mate, well it just doesn't warrant.
Sorry, for all the Johanna Lindsey fans -- out there in romance land -- and I am one of her biggest, this book misses the grade. For entertainment, seduction and lust, read Lindsey's "Prisoner of my Desire" or "Gentle Rogue".
