5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Frontier Historial ever read! 26 janvier 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Jake a half Apache/half white drifter who has killed for survival meets the classy Sarah, a woman who travels to the small down to stay with her father. Early on we find that Sarah's father is killed in a 'mining accident' and she does not find out until the day she arrives. Jake, escorts her to her father's home (obviously her father couldn't meet her), out in the boonies hoping she will decide to go back where she came from as it is not safe for a beautiful and single young woman to be out there all alone. Unable to convince this lady to return, as she feels that is where she belongs, he grudgingly decides to keep an eye on her for safety purposes. The attraction is certainly there and what I like about this book is that they don't have the 'does he/she love me does he/she not' attitude that continues throughout some books, which is sometimes exasperating. While I enjoyed every chapter of the book, the ending was outstanding. This book is hard to find and when you do it can be quite pricey. I won it on an auction and paid through the nose but I have to say I didn't regret it. A lot of incidents that keep you turning that page.

This book is a MUST READ ! Especially if you have read LOVING JACK also by Nora Roberts. While it is not precisely a sequel it is a way related. Lawless is one the very few historical novels that Nora Roberts has written Rebellion being the other. This is set in Arizonia and it is action packed with a touching love

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Tugs at the Western Heartstrings 6 septembre 2006
Par Karen - Publié sur
It's a romance novel, people. Moreover, it's an historical romance novel. Realism is not what this genre is about. It was just believable enough that I enjoyed it. This genre is about fantasy, fairy tale. And every once in awhile, I think it's great to read a novel like this one.
It's set in 1875, by the way, not the 1900s. Would there have been Apache stagecoach attacks in 1875? I dunno, but does it matter?

One thing that does bother me is Roberts' tendency to involve bruising with sex. Lots of passages where the hero is described as bruising the woman when he gets really aroused. I try to ignore these descriptions, but find them disturbing. I don't think that normal embracing, or even rough caresses, would cause bruising. Is this some kind of weird quasi-rape fantasy? And if so, is this what women want to read?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A love story to remember... 16 juin 2009
Par Barbara Bell - Publié sur
"Lawless" is a love story that will make you swoon. Roberts has created characters with depth, feeling, and intensity in this story, and I couldn't put it down. Sarah Conway and Jake Redman are so real that you can feel the frustration, the anxiety, and eventually the love that develops between the two of them.

Sarah arrives in Lone Bluff of the Arizona Territory after the stagecoach she was riding was saved from an Indian attack by Jake Redman. Redman, who is a bicultural mix of Apache and Caucasian, is a hand for hire, and is known for not missing at what he aims. While Sarah is grateful that he saved their coach, she is mystified by this unlikely hero.

Upon arriving in town, she finds out that her father passed away a few days before when his mine (aptly named Sarah's Pride) collapsed with him in it. It is our unlikely hero, Redman, who finds this out, tells her, and brings her to her father's home. He is sure that she'll take one look and head back East from where she came. When she insists on staying, he's again sure that she won't last a week.

Sarah may look like a lady with manners, but she defies her stereotype as a damsel in distress time and time again. She is determined to stay, no matter that her first night is spent listening to strange sounds and making a dinner out of cold beans. She begins to clean up this unexpected home that she has inherited without the father she was expecting. She softens toward the ways of the West, realizing that survival is at the forefront.

Jake does the same in defying stereotypes. Although he is a "hired gun," he has the undercurrents of a gentleman and worries about this gal outside of town and in the wilderness. He camps out by her house the first night to make sure she is safe. He finds excuses to go by her house to check on her. He finds, fights for, and rescues her after Apaches have taken her. He is there and present when she needs help, which is the core of their relationship, as she is unlikely to ask otherwise. She is feisty and fights him all the way, until she realizes how much he consumes her thoughts and how often he has come to her aid.

Sarah makes friends with the ladies in town by minding her manners, working her land, and eking out a living in this untamed territory. She eventually begins a business of sewing fashionable dresses for the ladies in town, as well, which cements her status as one of their own.

It's the big dance on the 4th of July that cements their relationship. It's where they share a waltz, and it's as if no one else in the room existed. It's where Jake makes a stand to Sarah to fight for her when she tells of another (and less likely) suitor mentioning marriage. It's where they argue, both standing strong for what they believe, and it's where they clear the air that has clouded between them.

This is a love story that will stay with you, long after you have closed the book on the final page.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A really good Western romance 20 août 2008
Par S. Fischer - Publié sur
When Sarah Conway's mother dies, her father decides to leave his young daughter in a boarding school in the safe east of the USA while he goes off to Arizona to find gold. They stay in contact through letters in which he tells Sarah about his great success at mining and what a fine house he has built. When she is old enough, she decides to surprise her father with a visit. Unfortunately, she is in for more than one surprise. Not only has her father merely a small adobe hut out in the wilderness and (seemingly) no great success with his mine, but just days before her arrival he is killed when his mine caves in. So there she is: A fine young lady from the east stuck in a hut several miles from a smalltown in the Wild West. Luckily for her, she encounters Jake Redman, part Apache and part white and - as a result - not accepted by either society. The attraction between them is immediate and strong, but their backgrounds are so different that both feel that they don't really suit each other. But then Sarah is faced with great danger and Jake is the only one who can save her...
This is a solid western romance which seems realistic and well-researched, isn't biased when it comes to whites and natives, but shows the positive and negative sides of both, and has a great love story. I like both characters. They could easily be clichees, but aren't, and they have depths that make reading their story interesting. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it, even if you aren't usually that interested in this genre. Just as some background information: This is a reprint of the novel published under the same title in1989.Sam's Creed (Hell's Eight Erotic Adventures)Caine's Reckoning (Hell's Eight Erotic Adventures)
