He was a loner, a drifter, a fast gun whose aura of dangerous virility turned pretty heads all across the West. But if his reputation as an outlaw didn't warn decent women away, his Comanche blood did...


He saved Jessica's life out on the desolate plains, then made her a willing captive of his savage desire. But even when he had left her behind to rej

Excellent first novel written by Madeline Baker.

Really liked the way the author portrayed Jessica Landry at the beginning of the story. Leaving the East behind, she is young, exuberant and sizzles with the excitement of her new life awaiting and all her dreams that will materialize in the American west. I could actually feel her excitement and joy. Very well written.

But a devastating situation occurs very early and everything changes in her life, again. Poor baby, she deals with it, actually sh

Well-written and I would have been inclined to give it 4 stars if the hero, Dancer, hadn't been such a douche. I was in no way convinced of his supposed love for Jesse at any time in the book. I'm pretty sure he mostly just liked that she was 15 years younger than him, beautiful, pathetically in love with him and always eager to please him in bed. Those are the things he was in love with.


I mean, at the end he sighs in resignation and takes her into his arms, basically telling her that h

This was loads better than Caress and Conquer, that is why it gets a three stars.

I noticed a pattern in romance novels, especially bodice rippers, the hero/heroine are always mixed. They are never pure black, persian, etc. The only exception is caucasian. Or they are raised in a minority race, but are actually genetically the oppressor ethnicity. Which is really interesting, and I will have to look further into this the more I read in this genre.

A pretty good read. I liked the plot and mostly the characters. This was written well and pulled me in, but not completely. Jesse was a pretty good character and I liked her spunk (although it was just a tad amount) and determination. Dancer on the other had was a really good character when he was, but there were moments I really didn't care for him and definitely wanted to knock him upside the head, as if it would do any good. The side characters were good and I'd like to see Tom with a good wo ...more
Ceritanya sih menarik. Baru mulai cerita Jesse sudah kehilangan kakaknya John yang dibunuh perampok. Terus dia diselamatin ama Dancer dan dibawa ama dia karena Dancer tertarik dengannya secara seksual. Pertama sih senang bacanya tapi pas Dancer meninggalkan Jesse sesudah menidurinya dan dia kembali tuk sembunyi di tempat kelahirannya, bener2 benci banget dengan Dancer! Dia berselingkuh dengan Storm Woman meski dia hanya jatuh kasihan dan memikirkan Jesse saat menidurinya. Bahkan sampai hamil!! O ...more

Just finished this one, again it was a second read, because I read it before I came to goodreads, and I wanted to be sure of what I put in my review. At the end of the book, Ms Baker said it was her first....all I can say is AWESOME!! Would that every author could write such a wonderful first novel!! I absolutely love this story, could read it again and again! One of the reviewers didn't care for Dancer's character much, but I thought he was the perfect hero to Jesse's heroine. He'd lived a very ...more

This is the first book of Ms. Baker that I've read. It was written in 1992 and I've had it in my TBR pile for a long time. Now, she is an author I will buy more of and will watch for new releases. I love when I find a new author that has a backlist.

Ms. Baker writes hero's that are bigger than life, ones that will excite you and have you loving them. Jesse, the heroine in Comanche Flame was casted perfectly for Dancer.
