Was soll ich sagen. Ein Historical. Ein langweiliger Historical um genau zu sein. Die Story eines x-beliebigen schlechten Historicals in Kurzform auf wenige Seiten komprimiert. Auf eine Sexszene muss man als Leserin allerdings verzichten. Innerhalb ein paar Seiten gibt es dann die große Liebe, wie soll es auch anders sein. Also realistisch war an "Red Satin" gar nichts, es gab eher mehrere Sachen zum Augen rollen, aber immer noch besser als andere Shortstories, die ich bis

Another good freebie. I really liked this one and enjoyed the whole reading process (flipping pages like a mustang - the horse not the car). The characters were great, the emotions plenty, the humor abundant, the connection feeling, and overall a read that was fun and intriguing. I couldn't wait to see what would happen and how the characters would react. I loved the family too, minus the mother. ;) Nag, nag, nag. I would probably read this again for a quick-fix reading session. Great for anytim ...more

This is a historical romance. A man has 'arranged' a marriage for his son. The young man is reluctantly on his way to propose to the girl with hair like red satin. She has declined many suitors before as she thinks all they want are her father's wonderful horses. An light, fun read!

The story was sweet but it was too short. I think I must like a more intricate plot. It needed a villain or something else.

This was a very cute story and I just wish it was longer so that we could get to know the characters more.

Short story. I wish it was longer, I think it had some great potential to make a great story.

I guess I'm just not a fan of short stories - I liked it, but it was too short!

Totally clean. Annoyingly short. And that sums it up: No time for any real character building let alone development and no real set up. Reads more like an outline than a story.
Cute, but why talk about love when they met only 24 hours before?

Barbara J. Miller started writing romances because she was running out of reading material and all her copies of her Georgette Heyer novels were becoming dog-eared. By day she works as a business analyst; by night she runs a retirement home for aged horses, dogs and cats. On the week-ends she spends a lot of time in Regency England, creating heroes and heroines to fight the Napoleonic Wars, shock ...more
