2 Stars - Sometimes you have to accept fact and stop
Started the audiobook, 9:48 hrs Western HR narrated by Moe Egan, already in July this summer and I've tried a lot of times but this audiobook edition just isn't for me.
Maybe is the story too outdated and "oldish" (first published 2001 so it shouldn't be) — when listening. Maybe was it the narrator (my first by her). Either way, I just get that unpleasant embarras ...more
This may not have reached the 5 star point for me, but I did really enjoy it. It had great hero and heroine, lots of action/story movement, interesting side characters, and of course, a sweet romance.
I definitely will be reading more by this author!
Sweet tender romance. Strong heroine, and a perfect hero. There are some surprises (although I figured them out early on).
This one is really hard to review without giving away spoilers. So don 't read any further if you like to be surprised.
The story begins with a bank robbery. While making their escape hero Lee Raven crashes into heroine Angel Bainbridge. Lee takes her with him because he arrogantly leaves his face unhidden for the first t ...more
Moving and beautiful. Grade A because even with few trivial 'bumps' and a fantastical plot, this novel provides great emotional impact and reminds me why I love reading romance. It left me with bittersweet feelings after having to close this book as I had to leave the lovers to live their HEA.
Lee Raven's parent's and older brother were hanged to steal their land by a corrupt community leader. At fifteen he murdered the criminal responsible and has been on the run for the next five years.
He finds our blind heroine who knows who he is. He takes her along (ie kidnaps on impulse) because he doesn't know she's blind and thinks she will identify him.
On the trail together they start to fall in love. S ...more

In this book you could already see that Heath has good ideas for plots and characters. Angela (24) was blind. She was abducted by Lee (20) during one of his bank "heists" because Lee thought ...more
There were so many of the old HR cliche's in here, blind h, H was abducted as a child, H was on the lamb for murder and facing a hanging. Secret babies... but it was all a great romp anyways. IMHO, you just can't go wrong with Lorraine Heath!
the only one. Angela Bainbridge was there within feet of the bank when the
robbery happened, and the guy who planned the heist knows he has to get her
out of the witness chain. It's only after he kidnaps her that he realizes
she is blind and that his intense efforts to get her secluded so she
couldn't tell the Texas Rangers who had done the robbery were all futile.
dari kemaren aku pengen baca novel ala2 koboi, dan pilihan nya jatuh ke buku ini !

Malam ketika Lee hendak merampok bank, tanpa sengaja Lee bertemu dengan Angela. mau gak mau Lee membawa serta Angela karena takut Angela akan membocorkan seperti apa rupa Lee Raven. yang terlamabt diketahui Lee adalah kalau Angela ini sebenernya buta.
awalnya Lee menjadikan Angela sebagai tahanan untuk menuntut ...more

Daughters of Fortunes #1.
Paling suka dengan kisah yg mengetengahkan kekeluargaan, kebersamaan dan kebersatuan sebuah keluarga plus karakter cewe yg punya keterbatasan tapi tak merasa rendah diri dan malah lebih tegar karena keterbatasannya dan karakter cowo yg cakep, badboy, menjunjung tinggi kebenaran, dan penuh misteri. Tak tanggung tanggung, ada 3 keluarga besar yg dipertemukan dalam kisah ini. Apa jadinya jika ketiga keluarga ini dipersatukan? Tentu banyak sekali paman dan bibi yg b ...more
sang heroine, Angela, tidak bisa melihat sejak remaja. kekurangannya itu ga bikin dia pasrah menerima nasib. Tidak. Dia berjuang mengasah indra lainnya, pisah rumah dg sang ortu, dan punya pekerjaan sbg penjahit. Penjahiiiit !!! Angela ini tipe wanita mandiri, dan punya kebiasaan jalan-jalan pas malam hari di kotanya. bisa dibilang, kebiasannya ini mengandung resiko. tapi Angela ga bisa duduk diam sehabis bekerja. jadilah malam itu, dia keluar berjalan2, tanpa menduga akan bertemu dan menjadi ko ...more
Lorraine Heath has always had a soft spot for emotional love stories. No doubt because growing up, watching movies with her mom, she was taught that the best movies "won't half make you cry."
She is the daughter of a British beauty (her mom won second place in a beauty contest sponsored by Max Factor during ...more
