This book is in an entirely new direction for Joyce. Unfortunately, I have been disappointed in her last three books and this is the worst. If you are looking for sex, not romance, this is for you. The entire book is sexual and not presented in a "fluff" manner, which becomes boring after a while. The little bit of plot is flawed with contridictions throughout. The book does supply lots of character introductions and explantions about the Masters, which you will need to know if you continue with the series. I don't think I will be continuing.
Romantic, with lots of adventure. Set in the western U.S. of 1850. "Beneath the star-studded New Mexico skies Seth Colter awakened in Morgan Wakefield a woman's passion, stoking the sensuous fires of a bold, tempestuous romance. Though fate would make them enemies, theirs was a love that would endure, never to be forsaken."
Montgomery Family Saga-1865 Fun, quick read. "Carrie Montgomery had grown up with seven adoring older brothers, and she was used to getting her way rather easily. Joshua Greene was looking for a hardworking, practical mail order bride to help with the farm and feed and clothe his children. Yet from the moment Carrie saw his photograph, saw his devastatingly handsome, sorrowful smile, the petite and pampered beauty knew she was the perfect wife for him."
Montgomery Family Saga - 1572. Fast paced romantic story, with lots of twists. "Jamie Montgomery, an impoverished Elizabethan knight, is elated when he is assigned to escort Axia, the Maidenhall heiress, to the castle of her betrothed. If only she will fall in love with hames, the family's financial woes will be solved. But Axia is not the shy, cossetted flower Jamie expects."
Montgomery Family Saga - 1988-1564 Time travel classic. Fun and romantic, tugs at your heartstrings. "Abandoned by a cruel fate, lovely, thoroughly modern Dougless Montgomery lay weeping upon a cold tombstone in an English church. Suddenly, as if in answer to her prayers, the most extraordinary man appeared. He was Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck and according to his tombstone he had died in 1564."
