Dancing With the Devil...

"You're certainly not in love with Paul. Because you want to go to bed with me." Devilish words indeed. But what made Flint Jansen so arrogantly assume that Aura would choose him over Paul--his friend and Aura's warm and loyal fiance? From the moment they met, he had shattered Aura's world. It was true, she found him undeniably attractive, overwhel...more

Aura loves her fiance Paul for the tenderness and security he gives her, so she’s horrified when his best friend Flint strikes sparks in her she’s never felt before. Even worse, Flint believes she's only marrying Paul for his money -- and he’ll do anything he can to come between them.

This was my second read of Dark Fire and it held up. It’s a very intense story and definitely won’t be to everyone’s taste: there’s no rape or physical abuse, but Flint is very manipulative and verbally cruel to beg...more

Aura loves her fiance Paul, but she doesn't love him that way that she feels for Flint. To Aura, Paul is comfort and safety. Flint is danger, white hot passion, and as far from 'safe' as possible. But Flint keeps pushing at her, tormenting her with the desire she feels for him, and the fact that he thinks she's nothing but a gold digger. That makes Flint a big jerk in my opinion. Even if he is right and Aura is making a mistake marrying Paul. He might try to deceive himself into thinking he's do...more
Those old RD books are a bit strange for me. As I've never been in New Zealand I don't know anything about this country or its people, besides they are from England. And in those books I feel like I'm in a strange victorian romance, with all those tea parties and gentlemen and huge plantations. Really they seem to be coming straight from another era.

But the book was good. I think RD has heroines who cannot resist their men. But they're not weak or whining, just overhelmed by the sexuality of the...more

Aura is engaged to Paul - until she meets his best friend Flint, and realises that the affection, respect and love between her and her fiancé doesn't compare to the fiery lust she has for his best friend.

I really disliked this book. I'm surprised that it was written as late as 1994, because it had a sort of '70s vibe to it.

The big thing that I disliked about the book was Flint, the hero. He was extremely cruel to Aura, and I detest cruel people. I like alpha males, but I like KIND alpha males -...more
This was pretty darn good. I liked the way the hero was drawn to her against his will. But I wish he'd had some kind of "OMG, I was so wrong" moment we could see instead of apparently falling in love with the heroine secretly without much discernible emotion. Overall though, a good amount of emotional tension throughout, and the ending was very satisfactory.

Robyn was born on 1940 in Northland, New Zealand, she was the oldest in herfamily, and as a child she thrilled her four sisters and one brother withbloodcurdling adventure tales, usually very like the latest book she'dborrowed from the library.

Robyn owes her writing career to two illnesses. The first was a younger sister's flu. She was living with her husband and her and spent most of thatwinter a...more
