Caroline Morrow, divorced and almost penniless, reappears in England in 1821 after an absence of five years, to the delight of Lord Simon Blair, her former lover. Soon they are in bed again, and again, and again, as the apt title implies. Ultimately, despite willful tempers and disagreements and recriminations on both sides, Simon literally kidnaps Caroline from her employer's estate and marries, then impregnates her to the amazement of the ton. After a false scare over the baby, they realize that they love each other, and that they will live happily ever after. The minimal and silly plot serves merely as a backdrop for carefully described and frequently repeated ecstatic sex. To use their own words, the two are "in rut" for the entire story, which is the entire point. Johnson has written an extremely arousing erotic romance, but, irrelevant though it may be, it seems highly unlikely that the phrase "pissing me off" was used in 1821.
This is one of Susan Johnson's better books. The story is good, sex is hot. You'll love Caroline.
Story of 2 people who started as friends then became lovers. After a misunderstanding they parted ways, but by chance met again. The story is quite good and romantic. Set in the 1820's but very steamy.
Snowbound and bound by desire they'll succumb to temptation Again and Again. A sexy, smart, and sensuous read!
The expectations I had for this book just didn't live up to what I had hoped. I had a hard time finishing it. There wasn't much of a plot. I couldn't get into the characters either. I just didn't connect to them. The entire was book was them falling in love and then the next page they hated each other and then they were in love again. There was constant sex on every other page and not that that was bad, don't get me wrong there was some very good scenes, there just wasn't much of anything else. This would make a good summer beach read. Read it when you don't want to think and you just need something to fill your time with. It took me an unusual amount of time to read. Usually I am done in a day or two with a book, but this one I'd pick up, put down and not come back to for days at a time. I'm glad I saw it through to the end. It did have a happy ending, but I won't be looking for more of Susan Johnson's books in the future.
This is typical Susan Johnson historical romance. Lots of steamy scenes but no foreplay really. Characters always jump into bed together regularly. I cannot decide if I really like her or don't but for some strange reason, I keep picking up her books every now and then.
Books title is a fair description of the erotic scenes throughtout the book.
In the midst of a blizzard, Caroline Morrow's coach is waylaid at an inn on the outskirts of a small village. When she hears a voice from the past--that of Lord Simon Blair--the chase is soon on...
Too much sex, not enough plot!
It's a battle of the minds in this book
Regency romance - 2 childhood friends become lovers, have problems
(both are strong alphas), reconcile. I always enjoy Susan Johnson's books.
Snowbound and bound by desire....In the midst of a blizzard, Caroline Morrow's coach is waylaid at an inn on the outskirts of a small village. More happy than annoyed at the unexpected stop, she basks in the warmth from a crackling fire, until a voice from the past sends chills down her spine...
They'll succumb to temptation...Lord Simon Blair emerges from the shadows...still handsome, still powerful. In a moment recollections of their sensuous affair scorch the space between them, even though their liasion ended badly--with his infidelity and her flight into marriage. Now divorced and nearly penniless, Caroline cannot hide her dire straits from her former lover--or the thrill that courses through her at the sound of his seductive voice...
Again and again...A evening spent at cards becomes a night spent in bed, which turns into days of tantalizing bliss. But Caroline must make her escape. Tearing herself from Simon's arms, she finds her way to her new employer and takes up her new position as governess, only to learn that her surrender to Simon has whetted his appetite for more. And the chase is on...
