Etienne Martel, the magnificently virile Duc de Vec, meets Daisy Black, an Absarokee lawyer from Montana, in 1890's Paris. They meet, they fight, they fall in love. But his wife won't let him go.
I usually enjoy Susan Johnson, but the middle 1/3 of this book is all about the Duc trying to get a divorce, & how nasty his wife is - a real downer.
Not her best book. The first two of this series were fast-paced, sexy and historically interesting. I think this one lacked all three.
For those of you who've read the Braddock-Black series, this is book three. I really liked reading the Duc de Vec and Daisy's story. This is one of the first novels which shows the heroine as a strong, independent woman who isn't just out for marriage and a family. I like that!
This is book 3 of the Braddock-Black series.
I didn't care for this story much. Daisy & Etienne are held up as perfect martyrs, while Etienne's wife is a she-devil. So unbelieveable. The characterization really suffers in this book.
this was a very good book, and will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Great vintage Susan Johnson.
