Sometimes while reading, I will imagine a soundtrack for the book. In the case of Janelle Taylor's Valley of Fire, that soundtrack is limited to this chorus: "A little less conversation, a little more action, please."

Look, I admire authors. Writing a book is not easy, and I doff my wig to them at every opportunity. But sometimes, let's face it, a book just is not good. Sometimes, a book just flat out is awful.

As far as Valley of Fire is concerned, the problems lie in repetition, failure to creat
“Valley of fire” è finito nelle cose da leggere totalmente per sbaglio, in un raptus di aggiunte matte e disperate, di quelle che mi capitano solo quando finisco su Netgalley. Poi quando leggo romance, la mia testa parte per la tangente e si immagina chissà cosa anche quando effettivamente questo non è il caso. Ma visto che do sempre una chance di redenzione a tutti i libri, ecco che l’ho terminato anche se il verdetto non è molto positivo.

The story of the Valley of fire has a lot of mistakes they are always jumping ahead trying to out figure the other person so
they don't risk thier hearts. They also have people trying to hurt someone because of jealousy.

This is an easy read. The book was originally published in 1992, now is being released as an ebook. The story is quite simple. Brandy was being saved by Steven. They both were attracted to each other. Due to fate they kept on bump into each other at different occasions. However due to misunderstandings, Steven did not trust Brandy comple

** "Valley of Fire" is the first contemporary (80s) style from Janelle Taylor, success in historical romances, with multiple meanings: the Vegas deserted desert hiway where sapphire-eyed handsome playboy tycoon on motorcycle rescues emerald-eyed beauteous virgin author rancher overcome by heatstroke, his passion, hers, and her previous book. Petty jealous admirers fan misunderstandings triggered when both famous names try to protect their privacy. Dated 80s costumes, details, and independent car ...more

Steven Wingate and Brandy Alexander are two people who need to get on the same page and not be hostile to one and another. While I did enjoy the novel the fact that these two people where at logger heads for most of the novel annoyed me. Not to say that there is something I don't enjoy in novels but this seem to be the whole reason for the novel. I would recommend it if you like angst and that is what I felt through out the story.

I have never read Janelle Taylor before but I would read another j

Too slow anyway, the story was not captivating and, even if I like romance with misunderstanding that leads to love, in this book there were too many in my opinion.

Painfully awkward... Sometimes confusing use of perspective (I mean, three different point-of-views in one paragraph is pushing it) and too much dialogue.
