Her family and plantation violently destroyed by invaders, Marilee hurled herself into a part of life she had never before known. It was a life of sheer survival, across desert land and Indian territory as she headed West -- her body taken viciously by men she hated, her dreams trampled forever under the victorious hooves of Yankee horses.

Con Sellers has his own bodice ripper formula, and it always seems to work. He is a craftsman of the "long separation" trope, and the wonders he does with it never fail to enchant me.

His heroes and heroines, after a meet-up of varying duration, then go off on their separate paths and undergo individual metamorphoses formed by a galloping ride of breathless plotting so that, when destiny finally does bring them back together, they are more mature from their experiences with tragedy, adventure, an
This is comprised with bittersweet spoilers, and if you gotta bridge your reading material with parental guidance screenings this isn't the place for you to test your endurance for disagreement & discontentment. :)

Conseguí MARILEE a través de un préstamo bibliotecario online gratuito.
La historia es original y transcurre por los territorios de aquella mítica Comanchería del sur de USA. Marilee es valiente y lo mismo se defiende a patadas que a tiros. Es violada prácticamente por todos los hombres con los que interactúa y éste es el único punto que resulta algo cansino aunque doy por sentado que eso fue muy real.
A pesar de todo hay algo frío en el personaje. No leo nunca bien sus emociones salvo su amor po

There's nothing exactly wrong with Marilee as far as the writing goes, but a hundred pages in I just can't seem to get gripped by the characters.

*2.5 Stars*

I'll be quite honest here. The only rating I can give this book is 2.5 stars only because it'd not turned out as I'd expected it to turn out. It was more of a slow-paced book, usually I prefer faster paced ones with a lot of drama to keep the storyline from getting dull and boring. But Marilee had its utterly dull and dreary parts as well throughout the book. Let me be clear: the first 1/3 of this book was yes, captivating and the storyline was intriguing and exciting

Marilee oh Marilee how I love you let me count the ways were self sufficient...mentally made of steel ....and a total badass and oh yes you loved that morgan horse more than anything! While this book has many triggers and is by no means a soft hearted sweet love story(some would say it does not count as a love story) I knew what I was in for and devoured it for all Marilee's trials and angst and hardships that she went through....there were a lot of men that "abused" her in this book and ...more
