He was everything a woman could want - handsome, kind, and now her husband as well, after rescuing her from her kidnapper, the brutal Jameson Wilkes. Even as Michael held her in his strong arm and claimed her lips in a breathless kiss, Juliana could not shed the painful memor ...more

This is the first book I've read in the series, but it really makes me want to go back and read the others. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Juliana and Saint. In all honesty, I would really read this book more like a 4 1/2 star, but I enjoyed it enough to bump it up to a 5 star rating. I really enjoyed hearing about Juliana's early life in Hawaii and her interests there. I also love how the author worked in little facts about Hawaiian history and culture. The book took a lot of twists and t ...more

When Julianna is kidnapped while swimming in Hawaii, she finds herself in a nightmare, ending up on the auction block. Saint, a San Francisco doctor from her past, is determined to rescue her.

Out of the four books in this quartet, this book is by far the best. Saint has always been a jovial, kind man, so he had the most potential as a hero. Of course, Coulter has to completely mess up his character by making him full of insane doubts, high-handedness, and arrogance. He's never so bad as the othe

I liked this book a lot more than the middle 2 in the series. Jules is a missionaries daughter who grew up on Hawaii. When she was young she met Saint and fell in love with him. He left though, and she hasn't fallen in love with anyone else. When she is kidnapped and taken to San Francisco to be sold as a sex slave, Saint saves her. The eventually have to marry. And then after the necessary fall out, they fall in love. What really made me love this book was Jules brother, Thomas. I love how he p ...more

I realized that I had already read this book years ago,but I continued until the end because it was a great little story.

Saint Morris has an actual real name!! His name is Michael! He earned the nickname Saint in medical school (HARVARD) when a cadaver was brought in. Saint saw the eyelids flicker, and had to fight his teacher to NOT cut into the man!

Jules was someone he knew in Hawaii. She was brought to San Francisco by a slaver who was dying of stomach cancer. He meets a tragic end, a painful end, and you almost feel sorry for him.

Byrony has a big baby, and Brent nearly goes out of his mind.

I'm sensing a theme of abuse, non-con and abduction from Ms. Coulter. These are all written around the same time period. Makes one wonder what is going on in her life, non?

Juliana is a preacher's kid who is innocent, sweet and then totally despoiled. Her family rejects her and she needs a white knight. Morris rides in on his stallion and sweeps her away. He wants to treat her as if he was a brother? Ugh, what brother marries their sister? Odd. But, he's swayed by Juliana's seductive tricks. Happ

This is about San Francisco in 1850's. I felt that it was very true to what life would have been in time period. I would say that this is a adult only book with several racy parts.

The star quartet was fun because this family lived and moved to so many interesting places in the world. Each transition was seamless and fun.

One of Coulter's romance novels. Good for mind candy. For those who read romances but put classics in the bookcase.
