    1. This one is very similar to Violet Winspear's The Devil's Darling combined with Bram Stoker's Dracula. This hero even has a widow's peak. The heroine's male friend goes to a remote Mexican town where he is begrudgingly taken in by the hero, a dark, broody, mysterious recluse living in isolation at his grand hacienda, mourning his dearly departed fiancee for the past ten years.The heroine's friend shows a photograph of the heroine to Dracula the hero, who is immediately besotted because the heroi [...]

    2. 3.5 stars rounded upI thought we had another Pagan Loveron our hands but no doing. Yes, we have a heroine who was coerced into marriage by a dark domineering alphahole, but then the thing veers way off.The story started with our submissive heroine, Roxanne, who was madly in love with Joel (or something other) and just can’t wait to get married. However, they were waiting until her fiancé saved enough money, which you can guess was a really bad decision (should’ve tapped that man). During th [...]

    3. Great opening 50%. Wobbly conclusion. I'm almost certain that AH was channeling Star Trek-era Ricardo Montalban for the hero, which is f'ing fabulous. His softly menacing accent + sudden, powerful temper + olive skin + widow's peak is so totally Khan. :D Also, there's offscreen rape & a random gothic vibe with the isolated hacienda/crazy old housekeeper combining to drive the young innocent heroine to fits of depression & terror. All good stuffBut AH dropped the ball as the second half s [...]

    4. I might actually be giving this one an extra star because I love the cover. It was very vintage in feel with a whole lotta telling rather than showing. There were not quite enough scenes with both the hero and the heroine. It was also one of those books where you pretty much knew what was going to happen so some of the fun in reading it was dimmed. I did appreciate that the heroine learned not to be so submissive. I never really felt like the hero explained how he was over the old fiance adequat [...]

    5. ‘You shall kiss me!’ he snarled, and brought his mouth to hers. Sensuous moments passed, moments of sheer agony for Roxanne, whose sensitive nature was outraged by this pagan treatment. She recoiled inwardly but lay passive, feeling this was the best policy, for surely he would tire of inflicting his unrequited passion upon her. But he did not tire. On the contrary, her coldness only added fuel to his own fire and Roxanne felt she would soon lose her senses if he continued. Her mouth was swo [...]

    6. Years ago, when I was a teenager, this book was amongst my favorite translated copies, I read it in Arabic, from روايات أحلام and I loved it so much I remember reading it over and over again.Roxanne is an obedient, submissive girl. She meets the mysterious Mexican Don Juan Armando Ramires who sweeps her into marriage, romance and his hacienda, only to discover that she bares a striking resemblance to his ex wife Marta. She goes into adventures and changes slowly and falls for her wild [...]
