Brianna es genial, es independiente y con ideas firmes de cómo quiere su vida. The marriage before the end took away from some of the chemistry between the two. I didn't Expect the ending. They manage to escape though all else die, and wander the desert for four days until they are found by Michael Fallon, a major in the British Army. But once they got married, the book went downhill fast. From the beginning to the middle I was glued to the pages. Brianna was way too forward for my taste, but Melody Thomas seems to like such heroines.
That being said, this was a very intense read for the first 70%. Wild and Wicked in Scotland, the first book in my new Charmed and Dangerous series appeared on shelves January 2007. Scandal would be the least consequence of their consummated passion -- there would be perils as well. The marriage before the end took away from some of the chemistry between the two. The bold Characters and the true love. La segunda novela de la saga romántica histórica de los Donally. El desierto egipcio a la luz de la luna.
Tienen personalidades complicadas, eso es seguro, pero hay pequeñas cosas que quedan en el aire y no sé si atribuirlo a una falta de confianza o un firme deseo de independencia. That is very important to me, so that gained Thomas bonus points in my book. Michael, the younger son of a ducal family, left England in disgrace twelve years ago to join the army. The plots are well researched and the dialogue is always appropriate for the time period and not cliche. Michael had not said he loved her, you see.
For Michael will never settle for anything less than a true, intense, and all-consuming love. I went whaaaaaaat when I read that, but what the heck, I quickly got over it. Porque por primera vez en mucho tiempo una emoción distinta se ha despertado en él. Far from home was the last place Brianna Donally ever imagined she'd find the one man she'd desire above all others. She seems to be really good at creating couples with a lot of chemistry and pull between them.
To want him was madness. My Lord Pirate, was a 1999 Golden Heart Finalist, which launched my publishing career with Berkley. That being said, this was a very intense read for the first 70%. Brianna es genial, es independiente y con ideas firmes de cómo quiere su vida. Michael is the most exciting man Brea has ever known, and the attraction between them is undeniable.
I love the setting in Egypt, and was sort of sad when they had to leave. These are some wonderful opening chapters with a great sense of urgency and a good feel for place; my mouth felt almost gritty as I read of Michael and Brianna huddling beneath a blanket during the sandstorm. Mi pega son esos pequeños conflictos que tienen. Discuten y no tengo ni idea de lo que pasa. Desde entonces no ha querido ni pretendido ser un caballero. Michael Fallon is the third son of a Duke, and when the love of his life was betrothed to his older brother, Michael left England to serve in the military.
In the past, I've written westerns for Leisure under Lori Morgan and Pirate adventure books for Berkley under Laura Renken. It's probably just a personal prefrence with me as I was never a big fan of storylines in which the hero and heroine gets married before the end. This is exactly what I experienced reading another Melody Thomas book, the lead characters had great chemistry. Must Have Been The Moonlight Thomas Melody can be very useful guide, and must have been the moonlight thomas melody play an important role in your products. Inglaterra palidece en comparación, resulta de lo más frívola y superficial. Brianna and Michael met in the desert. Me encanta que la primera parte se ambientara en Egipto.
But all in all, it is an engrossing read and I do recommend this book for its unusual setting and characters. Inglaterra encierra en un despacho a Michael para ocuparse de algo que nunca imaginó que haría. Michael is the most exciting man Brea has ever known, and the attraction between them is undeniable. A 'modern' woman, she sees nothing wrong in initiating an affair, but when Michael unexpectedly inherits the family dukedom, the 'marriage of convenience' Michael proposes is anything but, and Brianna suddenly finds herself falling in love with a man she vowed never to trust with her heart. To deny her was impossible. But once they got back to England as a married couple, the book tanked.
Their romance started, unconventionally, in Egypt. Se ocultan cosas y no puedo ver en claro por qué fin lo hacen. My girlish heart can't quite handle so much sexiness. Because he is dressed in long Bedouin robes, he is mistaken for one of the caravan attackers and conked on the head. Far from home was the last place Brianna Donally ever imagined she'd find the one man she'd desire above all others. I have not read a book whose characters interested me in a while. Michael returns her sexual infatuation but he also likes her, particularly her sense of adventure and unconventionality.
Michael cannot disregard these sensual stirrings. Have you ever wanted to be a romance writer? I loved the Egyptian setting and this part of the novel was well-executed and evocative. Michael Fallon is the third son of a Duke, and when the love of his life was betrothed to his older brother, Michael left England to serve in the military. That is probably the reason why I went up with my rating for this book. He intends to find the leak in the army offices that lead to the attack and the death of his friend. With the return to England and its more stultifying and restricted atmosphere, the novel became less interesting and more conventional. But the lead couples have great chemistry.
