    1. This one was a lot of fun. (Look at that awesome cover! heh heh meeeow)Running from an arranged marriage into the arms of man who mail ordered a wife- (no worries, she really wasn’t going to honor said agreement)- Sharisse Hammond can’t believe the predicament she’s gotten herself into… and how much the rugged land and the man who is taming it, stirs her blood. So she sticks around for awhile despite plans otherwise.Lucas has plans of his own and it all centers on destroying the man who [...]


    2. In this book's defense, there is no way the plot could possibly live up to the cover's potential. But it was close. I've heard on Very Good Authority™ several horror stories of the Johanna Lindsey reading experience, but that was not going to deter me from having the pleasure/excuse to legitimately fondle this cover for at least a few days while I read it.So, the cover immediately prepped me to LURVE the hero, and I did. From the first moment he appeared, I was alland totally invested in the c [...]



    3. This was a good one. A solid 4 stars!A tropey, outlandish plotline with some ott happenings spread across a year and two continents before a sweet hea.**Spoilers et al**The h’s background-An amour gone sour in the past.A sister who’s as selfish and spoilt and covetous as they come. An engagement with a spineless om pushed by scheming materialistic papas. The sister wants the fiancé and the h ends up going far west to an unknown man as a stand-in mail order bride for her sister (who had plan [...]


    4. Full review at Smart Bitches, Trashy BooksSo I started reading this because someone who shall remain nameless but who’s name rhymes with D-Ellie posted the original cover art, which involves titty-fucking basically and I had to read it. What better way to get back into the Old School Groove than to read me some crazysauce Lindsey?Spoiler: there’s no actual titty-fucking in this book.Well, I’ll say this. It’s a ridiculous plot of one dude pretending to be twins (AND NO ONE NOTICES) (THESE [...]


    5. RECOMENDADÍSIMO 100% Este libro me ha sorprendido muchísimo, es el primer libro que leo sobre el Oeste y estoy segura que no será el último. Me ha encantado la historia de amor entre los protagonistas porque Sharisse no es la típica joven ingenua, ella es inteligente, perspicaz y muy atrevida. Lucas Holt esstible jajaja no encontraréis al típico protagonista dominante, es tierno a pesar de esa coraza que se ha creado.Yo califico los libros que mas me gustan en función del sentimiento fin [...]


    6. Una novela que me enganchó y que me hizo querer leer cada página, sin embargo, no tiene un alto nivel de complejidad y es bastante breve, aunque se desarrolla sin problemas. El juego que hay entre los dos protagonistas gemelos y la nueva vida de Sharise, la protagonista, inspiran mucha curiosidad y hacen que aumenten las ganas de seguir leyendo.Todo lo que le sucede a la protagonista es de lo más inusual y está motivado por cuestiones muy curiosas, pero merece la pena, no rompe el pacto con [...]


    7. I haven't read this book in forever. I finally got it on Kindle, but I used to have this paperback Tender Is the Storm (I'm sure it is tucked away in a box in the basement somewhere) and now that I'm looking at it some of those covers back then were even more risque than today's covers. I think this book is still awesome! It was well written and I like it more than Johanna Lindsey's newer books. I loved sweet Lucas and dangerous Slade. Sharisse of course wasn't planning on being a mail-order bri [...]


    8. I have to admit, I did chose this book to read because of its original cover, cause years ago on Smart Bitches, Trashy Books they talked about this ridiculous cover and what they seem to be doing on the cover :). But this is a book that should not be judged by it's cover! The story is actually quite entertaining and thrilling. It's a time when America was still mostly East Coast and West was for prospectors, ranchers and gunslingers. Close to a little Newcombe town lives Lucas Holt, keeping a ho [...]


    9. Not gonna lie, I flipped through this because the cover is just amaze-balls. What do you even call this sexual maneuver? Stomach-job? Just-under-the-boobs-job?Lindsey is clearly not very familiar with the French language or the late 1800s, as "Sharisse" is neither French (they don't use "sh") or Victorian. (Why yes, I checked census records; why do you ask?) You could maybe argue for "Charisse" but it sounds mega-1970s.Anyway, pretty boring. Ridiculous plot twists that are pretty obvious. Sex sc [...]


    10. I love how some of Lindsey's novels have heroes in all their glorious nakedness, with the very superlative art by Robert McGinnis. MUCH LOVE.


    11. Tema pertukaran identitas antar saudara biasanya kocak dan akan mengundang tawa. Entah salah dimana, saya gak bisa tertawa dgn novel ini.Karena kasihan pada adiknya yg tergila-gila pada tunangannya, Sharisse mengambil tindakan drastis dgn menggantikan adiknya, kabur ke Newcomb, Arizona utk bertemu Lucas Holt yg sedang mencari istri. Setibanya disana, Sharisse terus menerus dilanda kebingungan dan harus banyak belajar mengurus rumah tangga. Ya tidak salah lagi, Lucas bukan mencari istri tapi seor [...]


    12. This story is choppy and convoluted. Sharisse Hammond is trying to help her sister, Stephanie, get what she wants. Stephanie wants to be engaged to Joel, says she is in love with him. Unfortunately, Marcus Hammond, their father, wants Sharisse to marry Joel. Stephanie decides that she will go away so she doesn't have to witness the marriage. When Sharisse finds out that Stephanie has agreed to be a mail-order-bride to a rancher in Arizona, she does not approve. Sharisse takes the hit and goes to [...]


    13. Before I begin my review, let's talk about this cover, and how it is seriously the best cover of all time. Seriously. I loved this cover YEARS before I even read the book. So let's break it down (and if you're not looking at the mass market paperback, go back and look at it NOW): First of all, the positioning of the characters is GREAT. It cracks me up that her boobs are being smashed in his crotch - if very definitely lets you know what the book is about (and also a great discussion starter for [...]


    14. Sharisse Hammond, an american heiress, is engaged to a man that she doesn't love, and feels trapped with no way out, not realizing at first that it is her younger sister that is in love with her fiancee. Once Sharisse learns of this, she learns that her sister has been corresponding with a man in Arizona who is looking for a wife as a mail order bride. So Sharisse decides to let her sister persuade her to go all the way to Arizona to marry a man she doesn't know, but would rather go out west, th [...]


    15. Best part of the book was prologue and the introduction to our main characters.d thats all!!The way the story started, it really raised my hopes for a good story, but it was not to be.The character's behavior seemed inconsistent to the way i expected them to behave based on their introduction. The execution of the story seemed to be done by someone who has just started writing and hence could not make their characters do and say things that made sense. It felt as if the author had some idea that [...]


    16. I certainly enjoyed this read. Breezed through it in a day. What a great story. The hero, Slade Holt, is out for revenge against the man who hired a killer to murder his father. Part of the cover was to have a wife. So he advertised for one since he was somewhat isolated in Arizona Territory.Sharisse responds to the ad because she needs to escape her father's wrath regarding her refusal to marry the man he chose for her.It's a fun read and has complex elements in the storyline. But JL wraps it u [...]


    17. 2.75 - Mail-order-bride romance - Reread :) Sharisse travels instead of her sister to far away Arizona to Lucas Holt, a rancher, who's searching for a bride via mail. Sharisse isn't really into marrying Lucas but she plays on time, because so she misses her wedding day with the man her sister is in love with. But Lucas has also his own motives for searching for a bride, he's searching for revange for his father who was killed. I liked the book, but had some issues, so it's not a keeper for me. I [...]





    18. A must read for anyone that loves historical romance. Had me captivated from beginning to end. Even though the only copy I could get was in large print!



    19. It was Fantabulous! *Spoilers Ahead* (and too many of them) So, here I was, fainting entire day due to my high feverbut I just didn't want to sleep so I got online and read it! I read many books by Johanna Lindsey and since I am a sucker for eroticas (I know that is bad, but I can't help that I am a pervert), I had to read it. So, as I read it online, I didn't get to check out the wonderful cover :') And my mom would disown me if she finds an erotica in my room. Though as soon, as I grow up more [...]


    20. I really enjoyed only one or two books from Johanna Lindsey. And this one is quite a nice read, even though it isn't my favourite.Sharisse is going to marry Joel, a husband her father has chosen for her. She is not really interested in him, so when she discovers that her younger sister is deeply in love with Joel, she decides to help them. The decides to leave the house in New York and go to Arizona as an mail-ordered bride for Lucas Holt. Her new fiancé is definitely more than she imagined. I [...]


    21. Non so perchè continuo a intestardirmi con quest'autrice. Ho già abbandonato 3 titoli e con questo lo stesso. Il problema è che non posso continuare a leggere sbuffando. Il protagonista è fantastico, ma non ce la posso fare. La prosa di Johanna è di una lentezza sfiancante.


    22. 3.5 starsTypical early Johanna Lindsey. Big strong opinionated male and a female running away from a forced marriage.




    23. Sharisee Hammond had resigned herself to marry Joel Parrington, the man her father had arranged for her. Though she did not love the man, she would never complain and always do what her father expected of her. That was until her younger sister Stephanie told her of her undying love for Joel and how miserable she would be is Sharisee married him. When their father refused to switch which daughter would marry, Stephanie took drastic measures. She set up her own engagement to a rancher in Newcomb, [...]
