MY TWO CENTS~

I've been on a Jackie Collins kick lately. This book doesn't disappoint and is pretty typical of Ms. Collins' work.

Sex. Intrigue. Mindless fun.

Although the ending isn't completely wrapped up (as I find her work sometimes), it leaves the door wide open for a follow-up.

ABOUT THE BOOK~

Burned once too often, true crime writer Lacey Richards has sworn off love. Instead, she explores her deepest desires through her anonymous- and very provocative-blog. Anonymous, that is, until her dark and ultrasexy neighbor discovers her dirty secret.

Stockbrocker-turned-carpenter Byron Hawthorne gave up life in the fast lane, hoping to start over in a new city. When he learns his alluring neighbor is the one writing the sizzling blog that keeps him up all night, he can't resist offering to fulfill her fantasies in the flesh. But Byron isn't the only man provoked by Lacey's writing. Now Lacey doesn't know who she can trust-and who she can dare to tease.

ABOUT THE BOOK~

In typical Romance style, Michaels's 1981 novel offers the story of protagonist Royall Banner, a recent widow who is wooed by Sebastian Rivera, a handsome buccaneer (what else?), when she leaves the puritanical yoke of New England for a Brazilian plantation. The twist is that Banner's business partner is Rivera's sworn enemy. Will that stand in the way of their burning passion?




MY TWO CENTS~

Although I haven't read this book since the the mid 80's, it still sticks out in my mind and remains one of my favorite historical romances. I also remember it because my mom and I shared our love of the book and the hero Sebastian. In fact we loved him so much, we named our dog after him at the time.

I wish I could find my copy because I'd love to re-read it.
