I just ate this sh!t up. This wasn't like rock your world right off the bat ate it up. It was slow in coming, don't suck you and then it just happens.
Read this for the 2017 year long challenge with the Historical Romance group, western category
Setting / Time / Genre: Texas, mid 1800s
Sexy times: Yep. A wee bit naughty for Health's earlier work. Caught me by surprise.
Plan on reading more by the author: Duh....always.

Harrison is a second son of an earl whose father sent him to Texas to keep him from getting into enough gambling trouble that he'd be thrown in the Thames. His childhood was very harsh, thanks to an insane mother who did plenty of damage by the time she was caught and that harshness has twisted Harry's emotions to a point where he's pretty certain the ...more
Quizás sea muy injusto comparar estas novelas con las últimas que he leído de esta autora que me encanta. 15 años las separan y eso se nota
Me ha parecido una historia bonita en la que la autora ya despunta por el gusto por protagonistas atípicos de fuerte carácter y con un pasado que les ha marcado.
Aquí encontramos, por un lado, una joven que busca desesperadamente la independencia, el no tener que necesitar a un hombre para vivir su vida. Una mujer ...more
This was a great read that kind of snuck up on me, especially once I started picturing Johnny Depp as our roguish hero. Yes indeed, he would make a fine British cowboy, ala Jack Sparrow on a cattle drive, attempting to woo the heroine into bed with his clever, wicked tongue and laughing eyes. Anyways that’s what gets me through the day.
Harrison Bainbridge is a scoundrel and I absolutely adored him. The second son of an Eng ...more
I have no idea why I keep allowing so much time to pass between my reading of Lorraine Heath's novels. I was shocked to discover that four whole years have gone by since I last read one of her books, which happened to be the first in her Rogues in Texas series. My only excuse is that I keep getting distracted by other books and authors or I keep trying to read certain books that fit the various reading challenges in which I participate. But whatever the reasons, I really ...more
Harrison Bainbridge has entered into a business venture with his friend Kit and with Jessye Kane, that if successful will bring all involved a lot of money.
I was hooked on Harrison the first time I met him as a secondary character in "A Rogue in Texas", and his story went in a direction that I wasn't expecting. Jessye, also turned out to be a person of strength that was hint ...more
Jessye and Harry are two head strong, stubborn individuals that truly need each other. Hardship for different reasons had been laid upon them years ago, but the reminder of those hardships are front and center everyday as ...more
Her romances are *Intense* with all the angst and yearning and the reasons for not having. Be prepared for any Heath novel to involve a roller coaster of emotions. I should know by now, after reading romances for the past decade or two, that you really should mix them up and not read the same type or from the same autho ...more

Numbers Challenge - Trilogy (three): Read a book that is part of a trilogy.*
S'Ok. That's the best I can give it. This is the first western I've read by this author and I didn't like it near as much as her England set historicals. The characters and plot were all over the place and the setting wasn't particularly strong. The quality of the writing brought it up to a three star.
Maybe cowboys just aren't my thin ...more
Stayed up til 2AM because I quite literally couldn't put it down.
Harry is an emotionally unavailable earl's son sent to America after running up too much gambling debt and Jessye is a smart & sassy drink-slinging saloon owner's daughter, and their story is poignant, powerful, painful and so satisfying. Couldn't have enjoyed it more!
Or maybe I just prefer Lorraine Heath's England-based stories to Texas ones.
Loved the heroine throughout but thought out hero got a bit boring after his injury.
Lorraine Heath has always had a soft spot for emotional love stories. No doubt because growing up, watching movies with her mom, she was taught that the best movies "won't half make you cry."
She is the daughter of a British beauty (her mom won second place in a beauty contest sponsored by Max Factor® durin ...more
