It's not for everyone -- it's very long (which I love) and can be a bit of a slow read. If you like Gabaldon and "epic" scoped historicals, you should definitely give it a try.
See my full review at Alpha Heroes.
The Wildest Heart is narrated by Lady Rowena Dangerfield. She grew up in India with her grandfather the Earl of Melchester, an unconventional man who believed Rowena should be given the same education as a man. To say Rowena is an unusual young woman is an understatement. The ...more
A tomb of Historical Romance, compulsively readable!
This was an amazing story, though not for the the faint at heart.
I was drawn to this massive book, by it's size, and genre.
This novel surprised me in so many ways. It was not what I was expecting, it surprised, and horrifed me, both in equal measures. The pages kept turning, almost on their own accord, as my blood pressure raised, and my fingernails suffered.

I never once felt the love the two leading characters had for each other. More like lust. There is more description of the infatuation and love the hero has for his stepmother than for the heroine. That in itself was disturbing. It wasn't as though it was for a fleeting moment either. No, the stepmother was basically "the other ...more
I read this book because while talking to my Aunt she mentioned her favorite author and recommended I read her book(s). I picked this one since it was one of few currently in print on the book store shelf. I'm not sure if it was such a good idea. I do have to admit that when I was in my teens I was guilty of stealing my Mom's bodice ripper romances from the '70's & '80's but I g ...more
Rosemary Rogers is the reigning Goddess of bodice-ripping' writers to me. I dove back into this genre after nearly 20 years with Wicked Loving Lies and despite many flaws that I recognized, I loved it. The sweet savage Steve-and-Ginny Saga (putting the FUN back in DysFUNctional!) pushed all my buttons in the best way possible, again... despite the fact that Ginny never developed emotionally over 3 ...more
The truth about a woman's status during those times are abhorable - especially one without a male to protect her.

Offff be ne romandı...Şoklardayım..Uzun zamandır okuduğum en sert roman..Tarihsel ve romantik bir kitap okumayı hedefliyorsanız bu kitaptan uzak durun. Çok acı var bu romanda. Beni sevdiğim bir tarz değildi.Yıllar önce Lesley Pearse''in bir kitabı Beni hatırla romanını hatırlattı bana..Bu kadar sert bulmama elimden fırlatıp atma isteğime karşın elimden de bırakamadım.

At long last I have read a book by the great RR.
I expected great things here, but was disappointed.
I guess when an author is as prolific as RR, every book cannot be a home run.
Oh rosemary Rogers, how I love your books!
A classic bodice ripper book with an adventure that you won't be able to stop reading.
There is rape in the book so if that bothers you then don't read

I was in the mood for a good, old-fashioned romance from the 70's, but this sure doesn't feel like romance. Admittedly, I gave up part way through, but Rowena is so cold-hearted, I just cannot accept her as the heroine in a romance. Therefore, I am categorizing this as Historic Fiction instead.
From others' reviews, I can see that Rowena ultimately loses her heart over Lucas, but I since I can't get myself to turn one more page, I won't be there to see it.
I would not reco ...more
Rowena è una protagonista molto particolare: forte e appassionata, giovane e indecisa. Non sempre l'ho apprezzata, in molte occasioni l'avrei strozzata ma ho ammirato il suo coraggio e la sua dedizione.
Questo libro ruota intorno ad una famiglia che nasconde diversi segreti, ed è grazie a loro che mi sono appassionata alla storia. Per innamorarsi di Lucas basta un nanosecondo, fidatevi.
Bellissimo, affascina ...more
Maybe it is because "This" was my first romance novel ever, I was 15 and completely fascinated by Luca the Native American hero ...
Rowena was also a fierce and resourceful heroine who, except for the ridiculous interlude of her engagement to the loathsome Rancher man, managed to follow her heart though hell and fire ...
Of course it is a 80's type of romance with its fair share of bodice-ripped shenanigans and way too many assault scenes that would make me want to slap the author nowadays ...
