summer love Reviews
The five star rating is for "Sultry" by Anne Stuart. I reread this one over the weekend. It was as wonderful as the other two times I read it. Ms. Stuart does the western so well. I feel like I'm there in that poorly-named, dusty, rambshackle, titular town in Wyoming, in the saloon with painted ladies, tired and horny cowboys, gamblers, and gunslingers, and our couple: Mrs. Carolina Cunningham and James Patrick de Cordoba O'Malley. I can't answer the question you're wanting to ask about Carolina's marital status. You'll have to read it to find out. But, knowing that I don't like adultery in romances, you should be fine. O'Malley is a gunslinger turned lawman on the trail of Billy Gaither, who is returning to Sultry to see his grandmother before she dies. He's the worst of the worst, yet, his younger brother is rapidly following in his footsteps. When Carolina kills the younger brother for cutting up a prostitute, she unleashes Hell's vengeance on her and the town in the form of the elder Gaither. Her "husband" is dying of consumption, and he's in no shape to protect her. But, O'Malley is ready and willing to do so, and to claim this wary, independent, transplanted Southern belle's heart. I am not at all impartial about Anne Stuart. I love pretty much all of her books (there's a few I merely like and fewer that I think are just okay.) But, this short story claims a place in my heart because of the fantastic mood she had captured. It's like a snap shot of the Old West, with a stellar love story. A hero to die for, and a strong, feisty heroine. Watching them fall and fight their mutual enemy was one of the best ways to spend a little time (and I know I look forward to doing so again, many times in the future). Once again, Bravo Ms. Stuart!
A set of 4 sweet stories. My favorite was "Summer Fantasty" by Jill Marie Landis, set in Kauai, Hawaii. It has a nice amount of spice to it. Least favorite was "Early in the Morning" by Stella Cameron. I love Science Fiction, but the concept of this one just didn't work for me.All in all, a nice, fun read for the Summer Time!
A collection of four stories. All were OK, but none great. The last story, Sultry by Anne Stuart was the best.
Anne Stuart did a good job of writing a fairly fast paced western. Gunslinger/sheriff and a virgin acting as a saloon owner/madam.
JANELLE TAYLOR = STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART
