this felt like a short story forced to be a full book. not fleshed out, trite, and so on. the plot was overdone, and it read like a bad lifetime movie. I wanted to like this, but it just wasn't doing it for me.

This is a review for Glory,Glory. Yes, it's an older book and yes it's kinda short, but really? I wasn't at all impressed. The writing was choppy, the characters were flat, everyone is all upfront and tells all and pretty much believes everything they're told, but the whole plot hinges on an unbelievable lie and cover-up.

This is a book is comprised of two older novellas – “Glory, Glory” from 1990 and it kind of shows its age and “Snowbound With the Bodyguard “which though newer, is a much less believable and polished novel.


“Glory,Glory” is a true tear-jerker. Glory was forced to put her child up for adoption when she was 18. She never knew who had adopted her baby. Now she is back in her old hometown, sets eyes on her old high school lover/sweet heart and things go to Hell in a hand basket

This is a very sexy tea

Glory, Glory- Linda Lael Miller - 2 stars

This is a short second chance romance involving lies, a kid, stupidity, cruelty, and extreme stubbornness.

There is very little character development and the story moves along quickly enough that you don't really get a sense of who these people are and why you should care about them.

Jesse and Glory are old lovers but in their current incarnation, it doesn't seem that way. Granted there are reasons why but it seems that their love was pretty flimsy if both

A lot of people really hated this book for some odd reason but I just couldn't seem to hate it. Sure, the heroine draws some pretty wild conclusions but we aren't always that logical when it comes to our children or the ones that we love. Okay, the sheriff wasn't the stunning example of moral strength but he loved and lost and pretty much gave up on ever loving again. When the woman he originally loved waltzes back into town unexpectedly, he finds out the heart he thought healed and a life ready ...more

Glory, Glory by Linda Lael Miller
D, blaze, no kink, contemp, originally copyrighted in 1990

Glory is returning to her hometown for her mother's wedding. 10 years ago, she was blackmailed into leaving town without telling her boyfriend Jesse that she was pregnant and giving the little baby girl up for adoption (please tell me you see where this is going). That's right. The first time Glory sees Jesse's orphaned niece (who was adopted by Jesse's older brother) she just knows that it's her little gi

Glory is forced out of town by her young boyfriends father when he finds that she is pregnant and has to give up her child. Many years later she returns to town and finds that her teenage boyfriend is now the town Sheriff and that the daughter she gave away is living in that town. She decides to stay because of her daughter and finally confronts the Sheriff about their daughter.

I love her newer books but this one was terrible. The main characters kept flipping back and forth at the drop of a hate - love/hate, trust/distrust. They go from barely speaking to engaged in the span of five minutes. One minute she's telling him to stay away and the next they are having sex in a car. It lacked the authors usual character development.

The story involves two former high-school sweethearts who reunite under less than perfect circumstances. The story unfolds by showing how they resolve their anger at one another, rediscover their true love, and it all involves a surprise I won’t divulge. A nice twist in the relationship that neatly wraps up with a Christmas miracle. A nice, quick read.

Very seldom do any books move my to tears, but this one did. My heart went out to Glory for all the heartache she suffered at the hands of a grumpy old man. I also liked the way Liza was involved in the book. Most of the time the child is just mentioned, but in this book, Liza had a active part. I liked the story very much.

In my opinion, it’s been way too long since Linda Lael Miller delivered a truly wonderful book. I keep waiting though, and hoping she will one day deliver again the quality and originality of the Mojo series. It’s really too bad she hasn’t explored that series any further. Also thinking back to "The Man from Stony Creek" or "The Rustler", which had so much more substance, I have to admit I've missed that in LLM's books recently.

Glory, Glory is a sweet predictable little romance novel with, unfor

I agree with the 3_1/2 star rating showing as I write this review. Since I can't leave that I put 4stars. The lead lady was just a bit TOO good to believe and the love scenes could have reduced to just two.

Two good stories about women overcoming their past to find true love. Both Miller and Bracale have great characters in their books. Both are full length novels. Both our heroines have grave injustices in their lives, a grandfather who runs one out of town with threats and a sheriff who abuses his office to send a woman and her baby on the run.

This is a combination of two books. The first is a reissue of Linda Lael Miller's Glory, Glory from 1990, and the second is Snowbound with the Bodyguard by Carla Cassidy. Of the two, I liked the Cassidy offering more. Glory, Glory hasn't stood the test of time, and I thought it seemed dated. It was funny , but I don't believe it was meant to be. Lael Miller fans may want this to complete their collections, but new fans may be disappointed.
The Cassidy book, a contemporary romance, was a well wri

Glory got pregnant at 18 and was forced to leave home and stay away. She comes back 10 years later to see her mother get married. She sees Jesse, her old boyfriend who is know the sheriff. And she meets Liza, the daughter she had given up for adoption.

You can see where this is all going and it does. Glory tries to get to know her daughter while Jesse hates her for running away without a word. But the attraction is there and they have no trouble having sex even while they argue before and after.

Glory, Glory a classic romance novel with a Christmas theme has been rereleased with a bonus novella. It is a well written and well edited novel by an accomplished author.

I recommend this novel if you feel the need for an easy, feel good read.

Glory returns home after 10 years. She discovers that the daughter she gave up for adoption 9 years ago is living in her hometown. Glory's ex-boyfriend is the little girl's guardian. There are many plot twists that brought about this situation. The story is a little predictable, but pleasant reading.

This book was a 3.5 and you can tell that Linda Lael Miller wrote it a long time ago. The storyline was great and I would have loved if she had written it more recently. She has such a way with stories and this was a good one but needed to be fleshed out a little.

I think I had been putting this one off since I haven’t liked the last few Linda Lael Miller books that I’ve read. However, this one put Miller back in my good graces. It was a very light, easy, fun read. Perfect for this time of the year.

Ugh, I am so disappointed because I liked Linda Lael Miller's other two books I read but I can't finish this. The plot is terribly simple and has been done a thousand times before and the leads are cold.

This was a quick, light read, but ultimately not really satisfying. Its short length made for a sketchily drawn hero and heroine, and the main plot twist was far too outlandish for me.
