Fiercely proud of her independence, Brenna Sloan felt her assurance crumble under Michael Donovan's forceful approach. They were both fighters--but Brenna wasn't strong enough to reach out for the love she needed, and Michael knew only how to take--until he met Brenna.

This was Johansen's first Loveswept, published in 1983.

Spinoff is Loveswept #17, TEMPEST AT SEA.

Very old school category romance. Hero is a Steven Spielberg-like director/producer in his late 30s. Heroine is a 20 year old actress with a 2 year old baby. Yes, we are talking about a 15+ year difference.

Heroine has a Big Secret which she is stupid for keeping from the H. Lots of misunderstandings ensue. The H is a typical IJ possessive alpha who quite openly talks about his obsession with the her...more
Budding 20yo actress with a 2yo son gets special treatment by filmmaker Hero who feels so possessive with her that he has a tough time dealing with her son b/c he's fathered by another man. Heroine doesn't tell him of her son's true paternity due to the promise she made to her late sister. A man from her past reappears & threatens to expose her secret & take her son away from her. How will Hero react to her secret?

Some good & bad points. It was emotionally involving & was a fast...more
I'm surprised this one wasn't written in the 70s for all the un-PCness coming from the H. He had a lot of unlikable qualities. One of the worst was his jealousy for the heroine's child because he couldn't stand the thought of another man having her and made her avoid having them together (it was better by the end of the book but I know some will never forgive ;).

This book was diffucult to review. It was a good story, but fell short a few times. It was frustrating at times, but it made me think i liked it more than i did. Or was it less?
Seems to be the 1st of the series that about movies.
This book is also tied to Capture the Rainbow.
I just love Johansen. What else need i say. 5 stars!
