My first read by Mrs. Jackson...and even tho i was skeptical because this was an old book...I must give her props...This book was really good!
I thoroughly enjoyed the instant, heated attraction between Laney and Jamal. Although, it was definitely a bit unrealistic, who cares. That's what romance is supposed to be! You know everyone falls in love instantly, gets married in a matter of weeks, and all the black women have long, silky hair and a slim figure, and the men are gorgeous and built well in all the right places. All I want to know is where can I get me a desert sheikh, who will denounce his thrown and alienate his people just for me (if necessary), OKAY!!! Looking forward to reading more about the Westmoreland family.
Ok read this is a day and loved it! This is were it all started for the Westmoreland clan and what a great place to start. Both Delaney and Jamal were stubborn but once the let go they both feel hard! The book evokes some many emotions. Phew! I could go on just go ahead and get your hands on a copy of this book if you can. You will not be disappointed! Because this book is written for the Desire series let me just say that the book is really based on the attraction and eventually the love that blossoms between the two main characters. This story is about love, sacrifice, and family ties. Not much plot not much danger however the way that both characters deal with their families their views on family is quite heart touching. For those of you looking for a romance book that deals with racism since both the heroine and hero are not of the same race than this is not the book for you. In fact, the author did not make it an issue in the book and what a sigh of relief! In conclusion this book was great!
