I'm glad that Mrs. Howard introduced me to John Medina. I haven't read all the books that he's in. My first book by her was All The Queens Men and John Medina stood out to me. He's definitely a good bad boy. A man that can wear many faces.

Ms Howard does have the talent to create the yummiest heroes. Even heroes that I shouldn't like are depicted in such a way you can't help but love em. James Diaz is such an example. A cold-blooded assassin.

Darcy (sunnytat462) | 702 comments I have to agree with the love for Cry No More. Just make sure you have some kleenex near by, you will need it!!

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 1706 comments Mod
Cry No More is one of those stories that stay with you a long time after the read. I do highly recommend but its a true tear jerker. I agree with Darcy. You need a box of kleenex!

Oh my goodness, it will make me cry?

Does something bad happen to the hero or heroine? Like death? If so, I know I will not be able to read it.


message 11: by Julie (new)

Julie (floresji) | 31 comments Oh no!!! Something happens but not death for them. Just read it. You will not be dissapointed. :)

Its not really a spoiler to let u know that the heroine's baby is kidnapped at the beginning of the story. I won't say anymore.

Oh okay. As long as the baby doesn't get tortured or killed. I'm okay.


message 14: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (sunnytat462) | 702 comments Arch, no one is killed or tortured, it is more about the hard decisions that a person should never have to make.

Sam Starrett is from Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooters Series.

He's in the first book, briefly. Unsung Hero

Defiant Hero

Into The Night
Gone Too Far

He's my baby.

John Medina is a Linda Howard's character. He's in All The Queens Men and a couple of other books.

LH is a long-time admired author. My favorite heroes of hers are Wolf Mackenzie from Mackenzie's Mountain, and James Diaz (I'm still looking for my own Diaz) from Cry No More. But she writes very sexy, dominant, possessive heroes. Can't go wrong there!


message 23: by Arch (new)

Arch  | 4144 comments Mod
I will be reading more of Linda's books.


message 24: by Kathy Anne (new)

Kathy Anne (kathyanne) It is that possesive,dominant, and can I add protective to the extreme ,and they stick like glue too-they are definitly loyal like forever,I never doubt or wonder about them


message 25: by Arch (new)

Arch  | 4144 comments Mod
In my opinion that is how the hero should be.

Very true, ladies!


message 27: by Kathy Anne (last edited May 09, 2010 06:55PM) (new)

Kathy Anne (kathyanne) One of the few books I disliked by Linda,that I read as a teen,is Dream Man.
I read books for the hero and the guy in this one is setting,or rather thinking about setting the heroine up as bait for a horrid serial killer really shocked me that anyone would even have that kind of thought-let alone one of Linda Howards.
He seemed to bumble his way thru till the very end and she finally saved the day.Have never reread that book,didn`t see how anyone that would plan that could ever be trusted.

I haven't read Dream Man. I know my sister likes it a lot, but she likes psychic stuff.

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 1706 comments Mod
I liked Dream Man but I did get mad at that part of the story.


message 30: by Kathy Anne (last edited May 09, 2010 07:05PM) (new)

Kathy Anne (kathyanne) I like psychic stuff too Danielle and Ghosts and Time Travel-those are my favs-didn`t work here tho for me,and I never did see anyplace where he redeemed himself to her either,he should still be crawling on his knees these 10-12 yrs later.
I have to say tho that Linda Howard is my fav author,I`m not running her writing down at all,it is something that I guess I can`t suspend enough to handle it,and can`t forget the lack of trust that would cause for me.

I'm not a fan of After the Night's hero, Gray. I want to hire an assassin to take him out.

Glad it's not just me, Pamela.


message 34: by willaful (new)

willaful I enjoy the "betrayal" theme, so I liked Dream Man. And thought it super sexy. ATN really pissed me off at first but then it grew on me and now I adore it. Also super sexy.


message 35: by Kythahra (new)

Kythahra | 13 comments Hope I'm putting this in the right place. If not - forgive me, am a newbie!

Sounds like Linda Howard writes my kind of guys, but have never read one. I know - the shame of it. Am just really cautious and hadn't had a recommendation...... til I came here!

Based on comments, Cry No More and All the Queen's Men are at the top of my list, but I'm a stickler for reading books in order and fantastic fiction shows Kill and Tell as coming before AtQM. Should I read that first, or are they only loosely connected?

Or is there another LH I should try first? If the hear is bad/dangerous/dominant/agressive/etc - I'm up for it! Any thoughts/advice mucg appreciated!

Hi Jemma. I would go with Mackenzie's Mountain, since it's an old favorite of mine. I have heard some readers find it dated, but I thought it was a very sweet, sexy romance.


message 37: by Arch (new)

Arch  | 4144 comments Mod
@ Jemma. All The Queen's Men was my first book by Linda. I've fallen in love with John Medina.

I tend to get series books out of order, so I can't tell you which book to read first Jemma.

@ Danielle, older stories tend to be the best stories.

Mackenzie's Mountain is a perfect choice, and one of my favorites by Linda Howard. It gives you a good feel for her writing style, too.

 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 9734 comments Mod
I agree with you both, Arch and Megan!


message 40: by Bekah (new)

Bekah (bekah317) | 93 comments I loved Gray from After the Night. He's such a jerk but he just can't stay away, and when he starts to beg...well it was great. Plus I thought it was some of the best tension and steamy sex scenes.


message 41: by Kythahra (new)

Kythahra | 13 comments Excellent - Mackenzie's Mountain, Cry No More, All the Queen's Men and After the Night. Check.

Now I just need a week on the beach/in a lake cabin so I can savour them. Thanks for the input guys! :)


message 42: by Charitabee (new)

Charitabee | 1 comments I LOVE LOVE KIll and Tell.........it has a super sexy scene..........love this book. Just wish it was in ebook format. I wish a lot of her back list was available in ebook.


message 43: by Kythahra (new)

Kythahra | 13 comments rofl - Linda Howard is one well-loved author!

In the middle of Mackenzie's Mountain at the moment - loving it! Will get Kill & Tell and All the Queen's Men next.

Thanks for the rec, Charitabee! :)


message 44: by Kythahra (new)

Kythahra | 13 comments Just finished Makenzie's Mountain. Great intro to Linda Howard - many thanks Lady Danielle & Megan! Very sweet, good story, likeable herione - and Wolf! I love the angry control freaks! (though feeling kinda uncomforable about my slight crush on Joe - I'm a cradle snatcher!)

Kill and Tell, here I come! :)


message 45: by ~Megan~ (new)

~Megan~ (megadee) | 1084 comments Mod
Haha Jemma! Don't feel uncomfortable...the next book in the series is Joe's book, Mackenzie's Mission. Much less enjoyable than the first, but still a good book to read more about the Mackenzie family!


message 46: by Danielle The Book Huntress , Loves 'Em Lethal (new)

 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 9734 comments Mod
Glad you enjoyed it. I have to admit, I didn't like Joe as much as an adult man.


message 47: by Kythahra (new)

Kythahra | 13 comments Oh noes! Joe had the makings of my kinda hero (when all grown up of course :D)

Oh well, I'll do the Medina series before I come back to Joe, so maybe the expectations won't be so high when I read his book! Am sure I'll like it anyway - am suprised I got this far without realising LH writes my kind of books.


message 48: by Danielle The Book Huntress , Loves 'Em Lethal (new)

 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 9734 comments Mod
I know a lot of LH fans love Joe. He was a bit too alpha butthead for me as a grown up.


message 49: by ~Megan~ (new)

~Megan~ (megadee) | 1084 comments Mod
Yeah, I wasn't too fond of him either, Danielle. To be honest, the rest of the Mackenzie books were kind of a letdown after the greatness of Mackenzie's Mountain.

 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 9734 comments Mod
I agree, Megan. I did like Chance's book a lot, even though by then my expectations were limited.
