I am rereading some of Linda Lael Miller's early books and am beginning with the Corbin Series. As with the first in the series, Banner O'Brien, I enjoyed Corbin's Fancy, but didn't find it to be as wonderful as I did twenty years ago. I found some of the interaction between the hero and heroine to be frustrating, but I found the book to be entertaining overall.

Fancy Jordan is down on her luck in Washington territory, and has been barely supporting herself with her carnival magic act. When Keit

DNF. Sorry the heroine was TSTL :( Really.

I think I'll quit on this series.

Very, very, VERY bad

The Bad: Let me put it to you this way: The couple (who communicate with each other like they are in high school) had so much sex that (Twice. Yep, twice!) they needed to use bag balm (See: Old timey Vaseline) to soothe the resultant chafing. Once again, the author had a ridiculous villain (recycled from the last book no less) and a gaggle of one-dimensional characters. In fact, there was even a duplicate character who just kept getting a new name. She was really only there t

It should come as no surprise how much I loved this book. I can say it was really well written as are all her books. I feel like her earlier books had more PG-13/R rated moments. Her newer books like Big Sky Country/Mountain are a little more tame. Banner O'Brien was such a great book that I was worried this book might some how fall short. WRONG, it so did not. I instantly fell in love with Fancy Jordan as a heroine. She was such a vivid character, so funny & as they call them in the old Wes ...more

I liked this wish I read Banner O'Brien first so I had the background story of Adam and Banner. Anyway, Jeff Corbin is a disenchanted ex sea captain who almost dies in a blast that was meant to kill him. You meet Fancy Jordan(aka Francis Gordon, who is a magician in a travelling carnival. She meets Keith, who is Jeff's brother, he hires her to care for Jeff and help give him the will to live. She knows who Jeff is and has her own secrets about how he was injured. Jeff immediately is attracted to ...more

Miller, Linda Lael

When a traveling carnival left Fancy Jordan stranded in the rugged Washington Territory, she thought her luck had run out. Alone, penniless, she welcomed a most intriguing offer -- to live in the home of Jeff Corbin's brother, and coax the wounded, withdrawn Jeff back to health and happiness.

But a villainous attack on his ship had hurt only his body -- a far deeper sorrow tortured him, heart and soul. For as the beautiful gamine fell deeply in love with his ha

I love this series! LL Miller can occasionally get a little in her prose, but she writes such engaging characters that I end up not minding. The word velvet shows up a couple of times, if you know what I mean. However, she does write some of the most sensual love scenes around. In this series she makes me cry for each of her strong, larger-than-life heroes and I find myself smiling as things right themselves. If you love series romance, these books are defiantly worth reading!

Excellent!

Jeff Corbin was determined to move on, instead of pining after his brother's wife. Instead, he finds the true woman of his dreams in the magical Fancy. Frances Gordan aka Fancy Jordan traveled the country earning money to send home to her parents by performing magic. After failing to get her rabbit to come out of the hat, she finds herself in need of a new job and Keith Corbin thinks she is just the one to help his brother get on with life.

A very enjoyable story.

Oh jeez. Remind me not to pick up random trashy romances at the bus station any more. This was just so terribly written - how many times can one author use the same adjective? I did like the female lead, Fancy, although I'm not sure why she kept bursting into tears. Or why she kept brushing her hair until it crackled. Is static a good thing for hair?

This was an okay way to kill two hours on a bus, though.

I always enjoy books by Linda Lael Miller and this was no exception. Second in the Corbin's series, it was a great story about two people who had their own set of problems being able to be better people together. I recommend this book and the whole series. Heck, read all of her series. They are well written and interesting and make you love the characters and feel good about the world.

I really enjoyed reading this book which was a continuation of Bannon O'Brian. Linda Lael Miller has a wonderful way of telling her story and making you feel comfortable with the characters. Fancy and Jeff had quite a courtship and marriage that made you laugh and cry at the same time. I loved the dialog between these two and the fire and ice that made them who they were.

This was an ok book. I liked the plot and the basics of the story. This had plenty of emotions, some humor, a bit of strength, ups and downs. However, I wasn't completely taken in by the characters. Most of the time they got on my nerves and the leading lady didn't seem very strong sometimes. Overall a good book and good for the lazy-day-read or for passing time.

Set in late 1800's Pacific NorthWest Heroine is alone working as a magician for a carnival. She is fired then hired to be a nurse to our hero. They have a past that connects but they don't know it until they are being chased by a villian. There is a wonderful hot air balloon escape and an adventure on the run. I enjoyed this story.
