Jul 30, Tara rated it did not like it Shelves: One of the first masters of modern romance fiction, Shirlee Busbee burst on the publishing scene in with a book that helped convert millions of readers into devoted romance fans.

After he forces her to go with him to Paris still on the mission for President Jeffersonhe goes out whoring every night. And when he mistakes a lady for a gypsy because she sort of is I fell in love with Jason and Catherine.

He brutally rapes her a hsirlee time. Typical bodice ripper, heroine is kidnapped and raped by hero, they both have a million misunderstandings about each other and there’s a lot of anger between them. I was ten years old. Therefore, I haz a soft spot.

My library Help Advanced Book Search. This was Busbee’s first book, and I read it after Lady Vixen, which is in my mind as a bisbee of special book because it was my first adult book, first bodice ripper. I finished the 50 shades trilogy- so I guess I felt I needed to finish this.

And she loved later!! I notice a few years ago I gave it four stars, but I’m kind of not sure I should have as the hero raped the heroine, and it This was Busbee’s first book, and I read it after Lady Vixen, which is in my mind as a sort of special book because it was my first adult book, first bodice ripper.

Other books in the series. I must admit that whilst I did finish it and I love Shirlee Busbee, this was a toughy. A bit oversexed, but what romantic hero isn’t? I enjoyed the historical elements and kept reading because I wanted to see how it ended. This is what romance books were like when I first started reading them and they weren’t called “bodice rippers” for nothing. Both stubborn but loved how Mrs. It’s a long one, almost pages and it does take awhile for the H and h to actually meet but I never found myself bored at any point.

Would I find Jason’s behavior acceptable in real life? Shirlwe person who set this up wanted them killed and out of the way but the gypsies decided to keep and care for them as their own. Well, that was an accomplishment.

I really wanted to rate the book higher but couldn’t do it. There are a warning of rape-scene and scenes where the Hero struck the Heroine. I am so glad that I am finished with this awful book.
