Return to Book Page. In addition, the sexual scenes were much more explicitly erotic than earlier contemporary romances–on a par with what had been common for some time in historical romance novels.
He sent her away since he couldn’t resist her and he saw that she was getting attracted to him, so when he sees that she may be getting away from him he takes action. Heroine was a virgin. Really the guy is no ray of sunshine Same with the skating. Beau, Marta, Kowalt, me.
This one was recommended, so I grabbed it from the library. As he has had many thought out the years and she has known them! Hero was not celibate while he was waiting for the heroine to grow up.
Most romance novels, as well as romantic-comedy and romantic-drama movies, employ what some non-romance fans deridingly call “insta-love” or “obsession” as the inciting incident for the story. However, readers who like their romance with a “Beauty and the Beast” fairytale underpinning might not object.
Also not believable that they would even have contemplated having sex the afternoon before her final, ultra-important long program. It could culminate in a crushing fall, or the greatest prize of all. Even I signed up for a super-obsessive alpha sighting and I got it, I guess.
With the Olympics just weeks away, an extraordinary contest of wills has begun. Related publisher series Loveswept. Johansen was an extremely prolific romance writer, publishing six or more 50,word romances per year for Bantam, currently a division of Random House.

By the way, prostitutes as a sexually cynical habit of the hero is something that I don’t recall any other author of contemporary romance at that time utilizing as regularly as Johansen satkn, and I personally find that motif distasteful–I enjoy these stories in spite of it, not because of it. He comes about his jaded character unable to stand weakness and vulnerability in anyone. A good old fashioned series romance with an alpha whire and ice skating – enjoyed it.

As Dany is about to compete in the Olympics, something that has been her lifelong dream- the tension between her and Anthony, who has taken care of her since she was a child and trained her to be what she is now reaches its pinnacle and soon unrequited love explodes. I was Mad as hell, as she is pushing for sex knowing that his mistress is still sleeping with him.
This was good, but not quite up to her suspense novels that I enjoy so much! Johansen’s Loveswept novels are usually no exception to that approach. It reminds me of Twilight, with the creepy imprinting-on-toddlers issue.

No doubt because it is crucial for a romance plot to function. Even in the days when I was a big fan of hers, I had never read that many of her short romances straight through.
I would’ve rather the attraction had stain over time between stin two instead of always being there from the time she was a child, as he claimed. Before Iris Johansen became a bestsellling author of suspense novels, she began her career in the earlys writing contemporary romance novels. White Satin by Iris Johansen had a very oldish feel to it. This was really more of a three, three and a half stars tops, but Johansen deserves at least a half point for the amazing feat of making a male figure skater seem sexy.
He also confessed about his mistress at sati same day, not at the end of the book.
