Prince Joe (Tall, Dark and Dangerous)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great kick off to the the TDD series!, 31. Juli 2000
I finally found a copy of Prince Joe and it didn't disappoint. A European Crown Prince is targeted by terrorists and as he is the spitting image of Lt. Joe "Cat" Catalonotto, Joe is enlisted to pose as the Crown Prince, and hopefully become the target so that the would-be assassins can be caught.
Veronica St. John is Prince Tedric's media assistant, and it's her job to transform the rough, New Jersey-accented Joe into Prince material. Although Veronica is strongly attracted to Joe, and viceversa, each believes that their worlds are just too different for a relationship to ever work.
As time goes by and the two are thrown together, Joe and Veronica realize that the danger of their mission might mean that they don't have a future together, even if they wished to.
This is a great book, the characters are well drawn and we meet several of the men who have their own stories told in the SEALs' later books. Joe Cat and Veronica are characters to cheer for.


Mission : Irressistible (Intimate Moments, 1016)
Mission : Irressistible (Intimate Moments, 1016)
von Sharon Sala
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good beginning for a new series, 31. Juli 2000
I have always enjoyed Sharon Sala/Dinah McCalls's books and this was no exception. Here we have the first installment (of twelve) for a new series dealing with SPEAR, a secret agency. Alicia Corbin has been recruited by Jonah, the enigmatic SPEAR chief, to bring back Easton Kirby, who now runs a resort where weary SPEAR agents go get some R&R. Jonah is being framed, and he believes it's someone inside SPEAR, so his only choice is to go to former agent East, who wants nothing to do with the assignment.
Alicia is a brilliant agent, a genius whose IQ is off the scale, but she's not comfortable flirting or charming a man into doing anything, so she is puzzled at her assignment. How can she convince this cold, distant man to help Jonah when he barely speaks to her?
In truth, East and Alicia are mutually attracted from the beginning, although he is angry when Alicia's true mission is revealed, but soon there is something even more important that needs their skills and attention. East's son Jeff has been kidnapped, and the stakes have become even higher.
I really enjoyed this book, Sharon has a way with creating true emotional connections between her characters and this was no exception - I look forward to other SPEAR books, especially the last one, which will also be written by Sharon.


A Game of Chance (Silhouette Intimate Moments)
A Game of Chance (Silhouette Intimate Moments)
von Linda Howard
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great ending to the Mackenzie books, 24. Juli 2000
I opened this book with both anticipation and trepidation, because I had built it up so much in my mind, I was afraid of being disappointed - alas, I didn't have to worry.
Chance Mackenzie, the adopted Mackenzie boy whom Mary rescued at 14, is now a lethal government agent working along with brother Zane. As the book begins, Chance heads home to Wyoming to bring a file so important that he must hand deliver it to Zane. It appears that a terrorist, Crispin Hauer, has a daughter who works as a courier. Determined to catch Hauer, Zane and Chance set the trap for the daughter, hoping she will lead them to him.
Sonia "Sunny" Miller has spent all her life running from her father. Her mother died in the attempt and all Sunny has is her sister, Margreta, and even that contact is minimal, only a weekly phone call Margreta makes to Sunny's cell phone - if the phone call is missed, the sisters must assume the other has been captured or killed.
When Sunny's latest courier delivery goes awry, she finds a rescuer in pilot Chance McCall, who offers to take her to her destination when she is almost robbed. In reality, it is all part of the trap, including the near crash that lands Chance and Sunny in a remote canyon, without possibility of escape. Here, Chance hopes to seduce Sunny into confiding in him, and once she has, he will signal Zane to "rescue" them, and Sunny will not be the wiser until it is too late.
Linda Howard does not disappoint. First of all, it's great visiting the Mackenzies again, especially devilish Nick :D and the Diapered escape artists. But this is Chance's story, and in Sunny Miller, he has met his perfect match.


A Man Like Mac
A Man Like Mac
von Fay Robinson
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant book by a new-to-me author, 18. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Man Like Mac (Taschenbuch)
I didn't know what to expect when I started reading A Man Like Mac. What I found was a well-drawn pair of leads, writing that never jarred me out of the storyline and research that was obviously extensive, but not annoyingly in your face.
John McCandless was Keely Wilson's track coach in school and although the attractions was there, they never acted on it, until Keely suffers a devastating injury, potentially career-threatening.
Her reaction to Mac's condition is brutal, her awkwardness around him believable, but she does her best to reconcile the fact that she has to work with him, with the attraction she feels now.
I highly recommend this book and Ms. Robinson is definitely on my authors to watch list.


My Darling Caroline
My Darling Caroline
von Adele Ashworth
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful debut book!, 13. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: My Darling Caroline (Taschenbuch)
This is a wonderfully written, emotionally satisfying book with characters I cared a lot about.
Caroline Grayson wants tbreed flowers, unfortunately, in 1800s England women are not taken seriously as scholars and Caroline's efforts to attend university seem thwarted.
Just when she has made up her mind to leave everything behind and go to school (under a name that won't reveal she is a woman) her father determines she is to marry. Her first meeting with the Earl of Weymerth is not a promising one, but after the wedding, Caroline begins to discover just what a wonderful person her husband, Brent, really is.
She must still decide whether to give up her dream or to leave Brent, whom she has fallen in love with, not to mention little Rosalyn whom she loves as well. Brent's past as a spy also poses problems.
I absolutely loved this book. Caroline and Brent are wonderful lead characters and I hope you'll give them a try.


Tears of the Moon (Gallaghers of Ardmore Trilogy, Band 2)
Tears of the Moon (Gallaghers of Ardmore Trilogy, Band 2)
von Nora Roberts
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 7,00

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant second Gallagher book!, 30. Juni 2000
Nora does not disappoint - this is the second story in the Gallagher siblings trilogy, wonderfully begun with Jewels of the Sun.
Here, Shawn Gallagher, the cook for the Gallagher pub, writes songs and idly lives with little thought to the future, or to his lifelong friend Brenna.
Brenna, however, has been giving thought to Shawn for a long time. In fact, she wants more then the friendship they've had all along and lets him know it, much to Shawn's shock.
Carrick, Prince of the Faeries, encourages Shawn in hopes that this romance will make it for the 2 out of 3 that he needs in order to get his own happy ending.
We get to revisit Aidan and Jude from Jewels of the Sun, and Shawn's sister Darcy, who is scheduled for her own romance in Heart of the Sea, the last Gallagher book.
I absolutely loved this book, reading a "sibling" book by Nora is just about the most fun there is. Her characters are well drawn, her heroines strong, her heroes nurturing. She's done it again!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Second installment in the brilliant Mackenzie series!, 23. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: MacKenzie's Mission (Taschenbuch)
Joe Mackenzie, son of Wolf and beloved stepson of Mary (the hero and heroine of Mackenzie's Mountain) is now a fighter pilot. His "baby" is Nightwing, an aircraft with superior capabilities, but someone is sabotaging the project, and one of the suspects is lovely Caroline, whom Joe is attracted to on sight.
Caroline represents so many surprises to Joe, who must decide whether this woman he can't get out of his system is the one betraying her country.
This is Linda Howard at her best, strong heroes and heroines, steamy love scenes, and lots of action!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty cliched, 22. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tempest in Eden (Taschenbuch)
I found this book almost unbearable to finish. Shay is a nude model who meets her new stepbrother, Ian, who happens to be a minister.
The attraction between these two is of the "I hate you/let's have sex" variety and I couldn't really like either of them. This is a very 1980s romance where you really don't see any genuine affection between the hero and heroine. I'm sure Sandra Brown has written better stuff than this.


Hot Six (Stephanie Plum Novels)
Hot Six (Stephanie Plum Novels)
von Janet Evanovich
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stephanie Plum rocks!, 21. Juni 2000
Yes, we do get to find out who was at the door - and right away, too.
However, the story picks up five months later when Stephanie is told by her bail bondsman cousin Vinnie that Ranger has failed to appear and either she goes after him (or Ranger goes after Stephanie, morelike) or Vinnie will give the case to archenemy Joyce Barnhardt.
As if this weren't enough, Stephanie has to cope with her new roommate, Grandma Mazur, whose presence puts a cramp in Stephanie's style.
Ranger is accused of killing someone and then setting fire to a building, where the dead man was found later. Stephanie doesn't believe he did it, but until she figures out what is really going on, Ranger is a hunted man.
Hot Six does not disappoint, whatever your feelings about who was at the door may be. Steph's got feelings for both Joe Morelli and Ranger, and now we have to wait another year for the next installment in this priceless series. The irrepresible Grandma Mazur is here, as are Lula and Connie, the bunch of schmucks Stephanie has to deal with as she goes about her business. I love these books!


Night Moves: Dream Man/After the Night
Night Moves: Dream Man/After the Night
von Linda Howard
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful, steamy stories!, 19. Juni 2000
Dream Man - In Orlando, Florida, Marlie Keen leads a quiet life after a brutal attack by a serial killer left her without her psychic powers. Now, however, a new killer brings all the horror back and Marlie, once again, sees everything the killer does through his eyes. Detective Dane Hollister (yum) doesn't believe her at first, and he even thinks she may be involved, since she can describe everything that happened in the killings. His attraction to Marlie, however, is undeniable, and as he moves in with her for protection, their relationship steams up, but the killer is still out there.
After the Night - Faith Devlin is one of the "trashy Devlins" in the town of Prescott, far removed from the Gray Rouillard, the golden boy whom she adores. One night, Faith's mother runs off with Gray's father and a furious Gray kicks the rest of the Devlins out of their tiny shack. Years later, Faith returns to Prescott, a self-made businesswoman, and must fight both her strong attraction to Gray and the mystery of what really happened that night.
If you like strong leads and stamy stories, this book is for you. Dream Man is probably my favorite book by Linda Howard, and although Gray is a little obnoxious here and there, he is a sweetie at heart.
