In this book, Radclyffe puts her characters in a very particular scenario, and then saddles them with very particular circumstances. She then writes the story completely ignoring the limitations her chosen situation should impose on her characters. And not in a these characters can rise above their situation way. It's more in a the reader gets taken out of the story multiple times because what they're reading is so unrealistic way. I get that this is the romance genre, and that books in that gen...
I liked this better than the previous installment - the characters and scenarios are far more complex. But still the conclusions of the storylines felt a little too easily solved. But I can't complain about HEA.Mae is the saloon Madame who takes pride in caring for the girls under her management. She does her best to make it as safe of an environment as possible for them. Dr Vance Phelps was a surgeon during the civil war, and lost her brother and most of her arm in the final battles. She is suf...
I loved this book, the characters, the setting, the story, all bring it alive every time I've read it.
Loved itThis book was one of Ms Radclfyffe's best novels. I have read a number of them and really, really liked this one. Her character development was well done. There was much more of a story in this one compared to some others of hers which seem to have more sex than substance.
Bought this immediately after finishing Innocent Hearts, because I needed more Kate/Jessie. And I wasn't disappointed. Builds from soon after Innocent Hearts. Keeps Kate/Jessie story going - which I really liked. And adds Mae/Vance parallel. Leads in Promising - Mae (from Innocent) and Vance - carry much more baggage than Kate/Jessie in original, so has different feel.
Totally formalised book - I mapped out the basic story in my head after the first chapter and, with a few deviations we got there. I was going to criticise this but actually, I read, this series was one of the first she wrote, so it would be wrong to dis a script which was so good and successful in it's day many copied it!
Like the first book, I really liked the characters, setting, and beginning of the storylines. But also like the first book, there is not enough development of the storyline and too much time in characters professing there need for each other. I know it is a romance book, but still...
I loved the audiobook from beginning to end, amazing narrator she took you right there.
This beautiful book is about healing through acceptance. You accept the one you love as they are, as they come to you. You dont try to change them. You dont wish them to be the person they were before a trama, or who they might have been. You accept them as they are, present tense.
Dr. Vance Phelps, a veteran of the Civil War who lost her arm in one of the last battles, travels to New Hope, Montana to try to escape from her past. She meets Mae, who was introduced in the book's prequel, Innocent Hearts, the madam at the Golden Nugget in New Hope. Kate and Jessie, the protagonists from Innocent Hearts, also make prolonged appearances.I wanted to like this book more than I did. It was okay, but I thought that Innocent Hearts was marginally better. The book is still plagued wi...
A very short book with almost no character development and very little interaction that would explain how their relationship developed. Not a bad book, but coming in at 200 pages I guess it's no surprise that the story and the characters where drastically underdeveloped. There was also the nagging irritation that at least one story line was left unresolved and the ending was a complete cop-out.
I was disappointed to find that the book was a sequel and most of the plot, from the start, is dedicated to a beta couple that steals the spotlight from Vance and Mae.What's more this book has the usual Radclyffe pet peeves for me: everyone is gay, and the butch girls all have male names. 'cause we can't have a rancher girl named Jessica, now, can we?
Worthy sequel to Innocent Hearts. At least of the same quality, maybe even better. Again thank you Radclyffe for another great book to add to my collection.
I love this book. I think I've read it 5 or 6 times now. It is just a compelling book. How people survived in a harsh environment and being different.If you love history and the frontier then give this a go.Really enjoyed it.
Not as good as the first one. Plotting not very tight. Still enjoyable, though.
loved it cant wait for more
