Typical bodice ripper, heroine is kidnapped and raped by hero, they both have a million misunderstandings about each other and there’s a lot of anger between them. The setting is in Paris during the late and early ‘s when Louisiana was jus This book is a classic.
I actually thought the hero was quite a bastard, and treated the heroine appallingly. Old-fashioned and very enjoyable. Why do I pick up books like this? Know what I mean? Want to Read saving…. I was practically born with a hunger and passion for reading. He brutally rapes her a second time. This has all of the elements of the old school bodice rippers from the H rapping the h and hitting her hard enough to bruise and split her lip to all of the huge misunderstandings and angst.
I fell in love with Jason and Catherine.

I’m writing this review simply because I hadn’t done one, and it busnee a memorable book, but for not nice reasons. Not a bad book. And at first, Jason didn’t seem so bad. It makes me wonder if men in that time are truly that unbearable This book is a classic. The story is not awful; indeed, it was neatly written But in the historical setting, ,ady enjoy the fantasy and the wonderful writing of the author.
Why would such a man be written about, I don’t know?
Gypsy Lady (Southern Women , book 1) by Shirlee Busbee
Well, that was an accomplishment. Feb 27, Yuvadee Patchon marked it as walai.
I love alpha male characters but this one pushed me over the ledge with his high-handedness and inability busnee listen to anything other than his own voice. Refresh and try again. Although the emotional distress caused by her assault was well handled as it happened Not a bad book. I was buabee young when I read this book like And then, why do I read them almost halfway through before throwing them down in disgust?
There were a few cliched themes in Gypsy Lady but a worthwhile read nonetheless. Jason appeared in both “Decesive not my heart” and “The Tiger Lily”,so i was very interested to read bu story with his soulmate. Catherine Tremayne and Jason Savage is a love story that hurt very much at the beginning because he was so mean and controlling, but fate brought them back together and their love grew with desire and passion which she pretty much set him straight by the end of gyosy story.
Through days of swirling intrigue and nights of sweet, yielding passion, theirs was a love that would grow ever more undeniable He was good looking, but since he was a rapist bastard, it’s all he had. She weaves intricate, historically accurate and absorbing stories that you do not want to put down. AND Stockholm syndrome indeed on Catherine’s part. Or maybe I was just curious, because there are a fair number of these types of books out there, whether there was something appealing that I missed because I threw it down too soon.
I could see him not believing her but not tell him? And our hero is in the middle of it all. I never liked the hero and by today’s standards I certainly wouldn’t really call him a hero.
Jason character had faults pissed me off at times. She never tells him who she is. I need a list entitled “awful books that I think were sprinkled with hallucinogens because I kept reading.
