You need to pay attention to the publication dates for Johansen's Loveswept books. She started her career in category romance before she moved to historical then suspense categories. All her Loveswepts reflect the type of stories being written at the time which by today's standards - and her current style of writing - seem 'trashy' , sappy or the heroine is insipid. If you've been reading her from the beginning of her career, you can see the evolution of her writing and character development and ...more

I loved this book. I have read it before back in the wonderful days of Loveswept books. I miss Loveswept. I had them delivered to my house each month and I could wait until they got there. This particular book is by Iris Johansen who has gone on to great success with the Eve Duncan series. Strong, Hot Winds is from her earlier style of books. The classic romance book where the hero and heroine know they love each other but for their own reasons feel they must stay away from each other, then they ...more

this was a quick read i got it in at the library thinking that it was a new one when i started reading realized that this sounded like an early work checked the publication date and it said 1988 then thought that it might be one of those thin books still a good fast read but i can tell the difference between her early work and now

I have too many other books I want to read to waste my time on a book that I am not enjoying. Perhaps I will finish it another time but more than likely this will go on paperbackswap.com for someone who wants to read it more than me. :)

An enjoyable audio book for car rides - interesting story, although a bit far-fetched.

Romance from the 80's. It is fun to read the old stuff by some of my favorite authors!

Didn't finish this book. It did not hold my attention against the other books I am reading. I think I'd finish it if I had nothing else to read on vacation. Sorry!

Totally enjoyed as an audiobook selection. Took me away as I slog through my daily commute! If the cover of the audiobook had looked like the one above . . . well, not sure I would have read.
