exposed All of this is the backdrop to the burgeoning love between Nicholas and Mara she who has sworn never to love and he who has sworn never to forgiveI love this book I first read it in about 1980 one of the first historical romances I ever read after Kathleen Woodiwiss Shanna and Shirley Busbee s Lady Vixen and I was hooked The historical detail the sweeping scale of the story from Ireland to Paris to London to New York California then New Orleans The author transports you from the tranuil luxury of a Californian rancho to the bustle of a rooming house in San Francisco to the brooding beauty of a Louisiana plantation all without missing a beat It s not as explicit as I remember it being but of course I was 12 but the love scenes are there This isn t really a bodice ripper they come together before marriage based only on mutual attraction with no blackmail rape or bargain in sight Mara falls in love first and is unable to fight her feelings for him which she keeps from him Nicholas on other hand seems to be almost unaware of his feelings until close to the end of the book He is almost a complete alpha hero except that he isn t brutal or alpholeish to her he doesn t take the time nor does the author to examine his feelings or motives very closely What you do get to see during the course of the novel is the emotional growth of both the Hh Mara becomes so much than the brittle bitter young woman she was in London With Nicholas we learn about the tragedy in his past he was accused of murdering his brother and disowned by his father Nicholas and Mara overcome betrayals and big misunderstandings caused both by each other and outside influences and still manage an awesome HEA All in all a wonderful vintage historical romance one that I d recommend to anyone who enjoys an epic style read This book review has been provided by the No Book Left Behind Campaign A Bodice Ripper Readers Anonymous group initiative to review the un reviewed
