Loving Evangeline (Silhouette Romantic Suspense Bestselling Author) - Linda Howard

Hall of shame contestant #2

 

Meet Robert. He's just your average genius millionaire superhero playboy philanthropist...ok, that last was a stretch, and I'm sure someone will remember where they heard that before. He has his fingers in many pies, a lot of them government. He's also like those historical Dukes who were always off doing super secret missions to the crown instead of working on the heir and a spare.

 

The head of one of his divisions is selling secrets of the sort that are national security risks. And using the h's marina to rent a boat for the drop offs.

 

Meet Evie. Virgin widow orphaned as a kid, married practically as soon as she graduated, and due to the unfortunate arrival of Aunt Flo on her wedding day, and the really horrible luck of she and her new husband wrecking on their honeymoon, resulting in his dying while she watched... Yeah; the method of keeping her still pristine is a bit much.

 

So Robert the Douche...<g> decides based on some v. sketchy logic that the h is an accomplice. He goes to investigate, pulls strings to put financial pressure on both her and his employee, and seduces her. He succeeds, which messes with his plans a bit because he's formed an attachment. Oh noes! Eventually, she manages to wriggle off his financial hook, then due to some unfortunate timing on his secretary's part, intercepts a fax telling him that they've reached a dead end on the financial pressure.

 

She freezes him out, and leaves. Bad guy goes for a last, desperate drop off, she goes after him, armed, H is also armed, it's a Greek tragedy there in the apprehending of the bad guys.

 

After everyone is arrested, and she's safely back at the dock (and over her initial shock), he 'splains things, then asks her to marry him. Offers her his house. She tells him no and to go away.

 

After prowling around for days and weeks like a caged animal, he finally visits his sister, 'splains to her too whereupon she tells him she'd have dumped him too, and storms off. Her husband 'splains to him the concept that love conquers all.

 

Maybe it does...to a point. I think the guy setting out to destroy her because he "thought" she was selling secrets might be a bit difficult. His seducing her at the same time...ok, he should be glad she didn't shoot HIM. I would have. Oh, I might have aimed for a knee but blood would have been spilled.

 

Considering what he'd been told of her past, he should have been worried to death that she might drive into the river; not freaking out because she saw through his almost psychopathic manipulations.

Raintree: Inferno - Linda Howard

Well, that sucks. Here I am, trying to read down this mountain and at the same time attend to that stash of numbered romances I'd picked up for varying reasons and I pull out one that's so interesting that I feel the need to hunt down the other 3. This is the opposite direction of reading down; this is adding to. (mutter)

 

Oh, it had its issues...

 

Our H, powerful fire mage or whatever, runs a casino. A suspiciously successful player is spotted and dragged into his office. The h - gifted in ways she's not really sure about and trying to ignore - finds herself meeting him, getting tested by him, questioned by him, etc. A fire breaks out in the casino. He drags her with him, forcibly links her power to his to help put the fire out, and drags her home with him.

 

Or rather, compels her to go with him. He manages to forget things like the need to relieve oneself. She's understandably pissed off (and he was almost pissed on, but don't think he thought about that)

 

This takes half the book - issue one.

 

Somehow over the next couple of days, they manage to fall for each other (or perhaps it was insta-love, not sure). - issue two

 

And they figure out there is a bad guy and he starts heading for the home fort.

It ends in a cliff hanger - issue three

 

And I wanna know what happens next.

After The Night by Linda Howard $1,99
After the Night - Linda Howard

FAITH DEVLIN: A poor, outcast child in Prescott, Louisiana, she'd always adored the town's golden boy from afar. But he called her white trash that sultry Southern night when his rich, respected father disappeared, along with her pretty Mom. Now Faith wanted to hate Gray Rouillard...not to feel a powerful surge of desire. But she couldn't quench her passion, any more than she could hide the truth about the past she had waited so long to unravel.


GRAY ROUILLARD: Even when he raised hell, he did it with style. Reckless, charming, and backed by Rouillard money, Gray controlled the town of Prescott -- and Devlin was a name he never wanted to hear again. But when he gazed at Faith Devlin, all he saw was a swirl of tangled sheets and her silken flesh beneath him. To care for her was impossible, unthinkable...because Gray Rouillard planned to use all his power to ruin her.
