So beautiful she gathers men around her with a green-eyed glance.

So innocent yet a capacity for passion smolders within her.

So strong-willed she will leave her family rather than marry a man she does not love.

So loyal she will follow her man from San Francisco to England to the Crimea and surrender her body and soul to save him.

If I were to choose one author and one romance bodice-ripper paperback to carry the torch of the most eponymous of the genre, it would have to be Donna Comeaux Zide's, SAVAGE IN SILK, published in 1978.

Simply couldn't get into the story or the characters. I know some bodice rippers have pretty shallow, flat characters but these really took the cake. They did things only because the author wanted them to, and the author had them do every crazy BR thing she could think of, with liberal doses of misunderstanding. Given another review, I knew what I would be in for the rest of the book and realized that I simply wasn't up to it.

I've only read one other book by Zide, and it was a mixed bag at best.

It probably wasn’t good to read this book immediately after my previous read. I couldn't stop comparing similarities within the plots or the differences in each author's writing talent. That said, my rating/review may have been a bit different otherwise...but I don't know about that...

Mariah grew up believing she was the daughter of a wealthy couple in St. Louis. When she refuses to marry the young man chosen for her, they send her to live with her "sister" at a ranch in Montana. Jared, the man who comes to guide her gets on her nerves right off--he goads her and demeans her from the start,but of course she has to fall in love with him. It's never quite clear where the relationship comes from, as he always treats her badly, and he jumps pretty abruptly from finding her childi ...more
