This book started out fairly well then just went downhill from there. I wanted to smack the heroine more than anything. She was annoying but the clincher is they went from calling each other by Mr and Mrs to "darling". This was set in the early west (corset was mentioned) but the way darling was used was so nerve racking for me that it completely threw me out of the story. The erotic portion was not that great either. It had a few moments but not enough to make this good. I felt sorry for the he ...more

Diana does not disappoint in this short, spicy tale. Lucas is a tough but vulnerable cowboy, at times masterful yet also reluctant when it comes to satisfying Hannah. He loves that she asks for exactly what she wants, yet when the ropes are put away, he regrets the bruises. After getting emotionally hurt and shamed by her husband, Hannah has very real reasons for keeping her heart aloof, even if she burns for Lucas's hands. Highly enjoyable!
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Hannah is a girl who has had her heart broken and like us all puts up a wall of defense. Lucas comes along and shows her the "ropes" breaking through that wall. Lucas claims what is his with a firm hand, soft spot and a creative use of cowboy implements. Who doesn't love a Tough Cowboy with a soft spot for his girl. ;)
Well written short read. Although some of heroine's "preferences" did not quite appeal to me, I still enjoyed this story and had moments where I actually laughed out loud from something hero said. I loved hero and that cover is quite something. Looking for other books by author. Recommended.
I'm sorry but this book just didn't fufill anything for me. It was very eh.

Dark, delicious, romantic and, most of all, erotic. These are just some of the words that describe Diana Castle's stories. She torches the pages with hot-blooded sex, inspiring romance and enticing fantasy. Her stories range from the past, the present and into the far-flung future. Dukes, pirates, cowboys; werewolves, captains of industry or of starships. She loves writing about them all. And all ...more
