Jacie isn’t especially happy or unhappy with her life and her upcoming wedding to the owner of the plantation she’d grown up on. A little unconventional as she’s friends with an Indian Shaman who has taught her about healing herbs in secret as the plantation owners don’t want him around.

But when learning that her mother is really her aunt and her real mother had been taken by Indians and had been seen just ten years ago, she leaves a note for her fiancé when he goes out of town, saying there’s s
I very highly enjoyed this book. *Slight spoilers not enough to really give anything away, but hints*. Michael got on my nerves, he refused to see what Jacie wanted and didn't care when she tried to tell him. I have to say that Sunstar/Iris surprised me, I would have thought that she would want to hold on to her new-found, long lost daughter a bit harder than she did. I loved Luke, I understood his motivations, and adored his sweetness and the way he cared for those he loved. I also loved how he ...more

This is a good historical romance with a sensual touch, not too steamy. I did think the heroine came off as a little selfish, considering how much Michael loved her. I'm just glad it looked like everyone might have a happy ending. Some of the passages seemed a little too poetic to me, but that's just my taste. It actually kicked me out of the story in a couple of spots, including a few words the author used that I would've had to grab a thesaurus for if I really wanted to know what they meant. L ...more
Iris and Violet are twins. But Iris is beautiful, smart, talented and wanted by most men while Violet has a plain face, a hooked nose, no talent and her husband, the love of her life, is in love with Iris. While on the trail while both are pregnant, Violet has a still birth and three days later her perfect twin, with her perfect hausband and perfect four sons, has a beautiful baby girl that she names Jacie. Violet finally has had enough and tells her sister how she really feels and that she desp ...more
I'm not sure if I enjoyed this book so much because it was really good or if it was because the last book I read was so horrible that this one felt like a breath of spring in comparison. Nevertheless, I liked the characters, the story, and the author's style, and found it provided me with a very entertaining night's reading. I liked it enough to overlook the author's occasionally forgetting which evil mother was named Olivia and which one was Verena. Even so, I would have rated this book 5-stars ...more

Oh romance novel, y u so crazy? Y u so cliche? Y u so racist ? Hagan's historical romance novel Say You Love Me is one of those books that doesn't make any sense until you realize it was published in the 1990's, during the revival of the bodice-rippers and even less racial awareness than nowadays. It's also one of those books which makes you despair for the world in general.

The Heroine: Jacie (Jacinth) deserves to be punched in the face. Repeatedly. She's so understanding of others, but only wh

I enjoyed this. I admired the spunk of the heroine, Jacie. I was slightly let down at the end. She had a choice to make and though coerced into it somewhat, I didn't like that she just gave in without a fight. I didn't like that it was Michael (view spoiler) ...more

Your typical cliched 90s historical romance. The main couple hardly spent any time together and yet they fell in love. Her civilized fiance flip-flops in his characterization and many of the characters are caricatures. A waste of my time.
Virginia Adams

This book captivated me. I could not put it down. It was as if I was right there with Luke and Jacie
Say You Love Me was a nice, easy vacation read.
I know I read this, it's just not memorable.
Teresa Bennett
Could not put this down. It was really good. So glad Luke got the girl. I was really worried .

Lynelle Clark
Thank you to the Author of Say You Love me for sharing the story.
I enjoyed every page and could not put it down.
All the characters played a part to create a master piece.
A sequel would make it complete.
I really enjoyed this book except the ending seemed to rushed. After the intensity of the story, it seems the ending of the book was to quick and blunt. I would have liked to seen an epilogue.
Jackie M
I would have liked this book more if the ending would have been better. It felt rushed and just ended. I would of liked to have seen at least an epilogue.
Loved it! It is a bit predictable, but has some very exciting twists and turns. Several times I could not put it down!
I didn't care for this one. It was predictable from start to finish. Nothing surprised me.
Great read ended to quick!
