I like it. From the beginning till the middle.
I hate it. From the middle till the end.
The girl pictured in the novel is a girl that is kinda plin-plan actually...

Kezia Saint Martin poor-little-super-rich girl falls head over heels in love with ex-convict, prison-reformer-wannabe Lucas Johns who's just too sexy for his shirt, too sexy for his shirt, so sexy it hurts.
I thought I'd be reading some juicy, fluffy romance but this book actually takes itself seriously. Kezia has an existential crisis and wears mink. People are out to get our crusader. Will they succeed? Will he survive to pretend to sneer at his brand new brown suede Gucci shoes another day? An

I am not big on romance novels but this book is unlike any romance novel I have ever read and will always be a favourite as well as being truly unforgettable!

It pains me, truly pains me, to rate a DS book 3 stars. But I couldn't bring myself to give it anymore than that. And I am going to explain why.

First off, I should point out that it was an okay story. It was written well. It was different then what DS usually does. It was like more grittier than normal. Not the normal light and fluffy. Kezia was almost selfish and rude. I understand that she wanted to do things for herself but she could have went about it a different way. Kezia just throws peop

"Se veía como si fuera una mujer joven que no tuviera ningún problema en el mundo.El maquillaje la ayudaba pero era más la forma en la que lo llevaba. Nunca mostraría lo que sentía como si tuviera que dejar que los demás pensaran que nunca había conocido un momento de tristeza. Sólo cepíllate el pelo, hazte un nudo elegante, empólvate la nariz, colócate una sonrisa en la cara y habla en voz pausada".


La historia es sencilla: una mujer de poco menos de 30 años perteneciente a la alta sociedad,

I liked this book but it isn't my favorite one of hers. It isn't my least favorite either. That was taken up by Friends Forever. This book took me a while to get into but once I did I was invested and cared about the characters. The ending left a lot to be desired for me. It makes the reader imagine their own HEA. It could of gone one of two or three ways when I think about it and that drives me nuts. I hate it when there are unanswered questions at the end of a book unless it has sequel where t ...more

Passion's Promise by Danielle Steel
Lots of action and different lifestyles. Some are together as just friends, but dedicated friends and they see others. he other males, her other males.
She is a heiress and hides that. She hides her identity with 5 different aliases, by writing columns and only a handful know who she is. She takes the assignment to interview Lucas-he's out of prison now but the CA dept could put him back.
He's on a goal to fix the prison system and aided those on the inside to fo

I am a person who has to read a book to the end and I was glad I did with this one because the only great part of the book was the end. I have read many Danielle Steel books and this was the rawest she has ever written. On the one hand I appreciated her use of swear words and the dialect between the characters seemed real but on the other hand I couldn't wait to be done with the book. I liked the ending that it didn't end like all love stories do but to get to that point was painful.

a really slow start. by the middle of the book I was starting to enjoy it. The story however is not predictable at all and has twists and turns you don't see coming. I felt the ending was abit abrupt and would have been nice to explore the final outcome a little more. overall an enjoyable read but I would not recommend it. Have read better Danielle steel books than this one.

I love this book. It shows that love can truely conquer anything put in its path. The fact that a woman of means falls in love with a convict and loves him beyond reason is beautiful. She sees this man for who he is on the inside and does not judge him for the mistakes he has made. This is a story of redemption, passion, and trust.
Darcia Scates
It was ok. I absolutely hated the main character, Kezia. She goes on and on about how she hates being rich. There is an easy solution. Give away more to charity. Tip the waiter more, establish a scholarship. I felt compelled to finish the book. I am glad I did, because I am still a Danielle Steel fan. But this one is not my favorite.

i believe this is one her earliest books and i can hope that she, like wine, gets better with age. parts of the story were really intriguing and otehr parts seemed to leave the characters at surface interactions. i'm a sucker for happy endings and this book didn't deliver in the way i wanted it to. i will be reading others of ms. steeles novels though.

Couldn't put this book down. Book started off a bit bland but after a couple of pages it started to get interesting. The middle is fast paced with lots of detail. The ending caught me by surprise...wasn't expecting that at all. A well written book with a protagonist who finally knows what to do.

I wasn't crazy about this book. I thought it was way to long and about the same thing over and over. Kezki's character was good but I felt we should have learned more about her parents past.

Wild energy, passion and sexy men

A great weekend read. Steel covers all the corners in this book. Money, power, sex, prison and strong wills tangled in a maze of love.

Good read and have learnt 2 valuable life lessons:

1. Love knows no boundaries.
2. Money (especially loads of it) doesn't buy you happiness.

Read between July and December 19863.

Original notes on book from 1986: Good book! Very intriguing King of disappointing end.
Aileah Rose
I didn’t expect the ending to be like that at all. I just felt so sad for them. I know stuff like that really happens and Kezia moved on but I just couldn’t help it.

Read the first 70 pages and really couldn't get in to it. I couldn't gain a liking of the characters.

I love a lot of Danielle's other books but just not this one.

PB-B @ 77, 10/86. A woman leading 2 distinct lives, a socialite and a journalist, meets an ex-con and falls for him. Fluff.
