I really enjoyed this one, matter of fact could not put it down. Diana was queen bee in her father's eyes could do no worng. Raised as an only child who lost her mother when she was 4, the Major loved his daughter to know end. Even though she made some terrible mistakes. Enter Holt, who was hired by her father to take the hard day to day life over on the ranch. Along with Holy came Guy his son. Over time guy and Diana come to a friendship. But after Diana returns after a college and a broken mar ...more

I ask myself if was only me that didn' t like the book.

The only reason I give this book 2 stars is that it, along with "Touch the Wind", was very instructional to my knowledge of sex as a teen. Prior to reading these two books, I'd not been told anything about a sexual relationship between a man & woman and had only haphazardly been tossed some adolescent book by Dr. Dobson. The herione's personality in this book is awful, she's not a person I'd like to know at all in real life. Her attraction to both father & son, and sexual relations with ...more

I really enjoyed this book.

I thought it might be more racy then I like but it was not.

It did end with a question though so I'm going to see if there is a book after this that finishes the story.

This book would have been ok if I could get over her sleeping with son and then his father but I couldn't get over it I found it so disgusting more so because it just didn't seem too gruesome for either lead protagonists. Ewwww

Set on a Nevada ranch. The daughter Diana is a very independent outspoken lady who lost her mother at a very young age. The Major has decided to send Diana off to get a degree and hired someone to help with the stallions. The genre is takes you through divorce, clashing of wills, fear, hatred, jealousy and a rogue stallion that turns the ranch upside down. I loved the book because of the setting, ranch life and romance.

I don't read romance novels anymore; however, this book, along with Against the Wind, and Ride the Thunder will always be imbedded(no pun intended) in my memory banks. I had very strict parents and learning about the birds and bees was something I did on my on. My Dad was super private about sex, as was my Mother. My friend was reading this book in class one day(she was and is very promiscuous). It was a paper back with the seductive inner sleeve. I started reading and couldn't quit. I'd go to b ...more

A mocinha do livro é Diana, uma menina que cresceu numa estância com seu pai e sempre fez tudo para agradá-lo. Ela vivia como um menino, correndo, cavalgando, laçando, tentando ser tudo para seu pai, como ela achava que ele gostaria, até que apareceu um empregado novo, chamado Holt, e seu filho pequeno Guy. Apesar de seu pai sempre lhe conta tudo e a colocar sempre a par do que estava acontecendo na estância, ele não lhe contou que havia contratado Holt e isso foi o estopim para a

Amante Indócil.
Janet Dailey.

Tudo que eu escrever nesta resenha, será pouco pra descrever o quanto este livro é maravilhoso. Porque é mais uma espetacular estória da Janet Dailey, sempre podemos esperar intensidade e romances complexos.

Personagens que nos despertam muitos sentimentos, normalmente contraditórios, porque eles não são perfeitos. Mas apesar de tudo, sempre acabamos completamente apaixonadas por esses personagens.

Na realidade é o lado primitivo e apaixonado que nos cativa, nest

Ugh...I'm so over Janet Dailey books. This is probably the sixth or seventh of hers I've read. They always have some kind of rather objectionable sex. From statutory rape and outright rape in the Calder series to this wholly unlikable heroine in The Rogue, I can't remember the last Dailey novel I actually full enjoyed. They always made me a little uncomfortable, but this one made me feel like I needed a shower. And what little character development there was wasn't very believable. Also, I had t ...more

Cам сюжет очень интересный, герои тоже, но постельные сцены описать автору не удалось. все скомконо а если описано то...

цитирую: Когда он ответил на ее поцелуй, то ничто уже не могло сдержать неукротимого желания, накопившегося, словно мед в сотах, в каждой клеточке их плоти.

Какай мед? Причем здесь соты? Вот теперь представьте - луна,звезды теплый ветерок гг-я занимается любовью с гг-ем в пустыни а вам ваше воображение посреди этой идилии подкидывает пчел, мед и соты!
