This is the first romance novel I read when I was younger and the reason I reading and love romance books today. It's more sentimental to me than anything else. Would I give it 3 stars if I read it today? Nope. Not even close! But like I said, it's a sentimental read for me and I love it because of that:)

I've bought this book because a friend of mine told me it was really, really, REALLY good. She told me about the story, and I was like "Oh, okay, this sounds interesting." And it was good, at the beggining. I mean, the main character, Sheila (Fun fact: I could only imagine her as Dianna Agron), seemed like a strong female character, and the story was going great... until she was "kidnapped" (I don't even think I should call it that way).

Then, during the entire book, I was reading it with this sa
This one was a pretty fun read,you have to keep in mind that it is very dated though. It's full of likeable characters .....and a few not so likeable. I would like to know if Laredo ever got his own book.......
I love this one and read it 4 times already.
I can usually forget the cliches, sexism, etc. in romance novels, but this one was a bit much. Maybe I needed to tap into my love of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers to get into the romantic aspects of Stockholm Syndrome and rape...

I read this for a class. And I am not embarrassed to admit that I needed to justify why I read it. However, I'll voluntarily and gladly read another romance novel.
This is the book that got me started reading when my exhusband and I was starting out we didn't have a washer and dryer so I was at the laundrymat and I picked this book up there and couldn't put it down here it is 25 years later and I still have that very same book I read it over about once a year.
this has to be ny favourite book ever.this book is not your typical predictable book.the ending my gosh janet it could have ended rafaga his a different hero,all in all a g8t book

Já faz um tempo que estava louca para ler o livro A Carícia do Vento, tão bem recomendando e cotado nas redes sociais literárias, mas o tempo e a falta de oportunidade me impediam de lê-lo, mas no começo desse ano resolvi colocar essa leitura no top da minha lista, e claro que não me arrependi.

Há anos vejo ótimos comentários acerca desse livro, o meu maior medo ao lê-lo seria acabar me decepcionando. Com uma premissa um tanto controversa o livro é surpreendente e, apesar de sido lançado em 1979,

A Carícia do Vento.
Janet Dailey.

As montanhas mexicanas é o cenário perfeito para uma estória fascinante, este com certeza é o melhor romance da autora Janet Dailey. Já li vários romances da autora, mas "A Carícia do Vento" supera os demais em vários aspectos.

Janet normalmente descreve personagens maravilhosos e contraditórios, porque na realidade são humanos e não idealizados. Como Ráfaga cria seu próprio mundo nas montanhas, e lá tudo o que ele diz é lei. Mas o mundo não é perfe

3.5. Really enjoyed this book I love an anti hero who falls for the heroine hard and won't let her go, this was a great oldie and will be on my keepers list.
This was the first romance I ever read, thanks to Mom's saying that I could read ANYTHING on the big bookcase in the livingroom. Apparently she'd forgotten she had a couple Janet Dailey on that bookcase. I was 7th grade, and prior to this book, all I knew about sex, I'd learned from some adolescent book written by Dobson. This novel taught me more about sex than I would've probably learned in a dozen years, living in my parents home. Obviously now I'd have some issues with the plot, knowing that ...more

I'm giving this 4 stars because of nostalgia and b/c it was not as horrible reading it a hundred years later like I thought it might be. This was one of 3 romance books that I somehow read way to young. I had the actual book forever, but lost it somewhere and now found again on Amazon. I'll probably reread it again sometime in the future:D
My first real romance book so it will always hold a special place in my heart. It's not perfect but I always enjoy reading it.
This romance is an oldie but goodie. Overlook some of the old 1970's references and read it for the great love story.
One of my all time fav, I started it at midnight and finished at 4 am.
A must read!
I don't know why i like this novel. There's just so much to hate in it.
My first love story.. Read this when I was 13!!!
