Cool as a cucumber, and totally dedicated to her career as a newspaperwoman, Maggie Agton is just the kind of challenge Chase McGarrett enjoys--especially when he discovers that she hid skimpy silk underthings and a simmering sensuality beneath her businesslike exterior.

Virile and all too sure of himself, Chase was just the kind of man Maggie detested--especially

I didn't expect much from this since my last Connie Mason attempt was quickly aborted, but I ended up reading this the whole way through. Partly because I was on a plane and my other book was packed in my suitcase.

I liked that Maggie, the heroine, was an independent career woman, although she was a super old spinster past her prime at 25 years of age, a fact which was brought up constantly. At one point it was even mentioned maybe she couldn't have children anymore. Because she was ANCIENT. Ther

Maggie Afton, is dedicated to writing in the newspaper, and has to work hard to make a name for herself, which isn't easy in the late 1800's. When she hears about the gold rush, she knows she must have the story. So with enough stubborness and grit she convinces her boss to let her go to do the story on the Klondike. When she reaches the Yukon, she meets Chase who kindles the sensual fire just waiting to be released within her.

Every time I read this author, I fall in love with her again. I was

Recommends it for: Historical Romance Western Readers
Set in 1897, Alaska! This book had a lot of potential. Good adventure, good characters (most of the time), but it just kept going...on and on and on and on. They'd no sooner get out of one catastrophe and end up in another, then another, then another. Ugh! I was glad when it finally ended and by the end, I know longer cared for the characters or this story. ...more

Part two of my investigations into this genre, this time a historical romance feat. a plucky female reporter dead-set on reporting about the Gold Rush in the Yukon, and falling in love with an impulsive cowboy from Montana! Borrowed from the library, too, because where else am I gonna find such great trashy vintage romance?

I really enjoyed the first half of the book or so, with their adventures through Alaska and into the territory -- Maggie is stubborn and strong and feminist from the start, de

The only love story I have ever read, so pretty hard to rate it up against other romance novels. I really enjoyed reading it about 15+ years ago, when I was in my late teens. Very intense and packet with love making scenes, although I think it may have been too much for my young mind at the time, it was overall a wonderful love story. I would never read it again as I do not wish to spoil the memory I have of it.

This was a typical Connie Mason book with lots of action and lots of sex that kept me reading but h/h were like trouble magnets and thought of so many road blocks to their relationship. Newspaper reporter Maggie convinces her boss to let her investigate the 1897 Yukon gold rush where she meets rancher Chase hoping to find a fortune in gold.

Mason has a common make up for her novels that make them quick reads, often very quick, which is funny as they are usually quiet long compared to other authors that I read. I also find that I generally make the same comments-- too much sex. Sex in a romance novel is fine, but its not descriptive enough to be an exotic novel, which would be a different animal altogether. But if I am reading a romance novel it would be nice for the couple to spend some time getting to no each other outside of bed. ...more
