    One thought on “The Doubletree”

    1. Re-read. I am a sucker for Western romance, like whoa and goddamn. Nineteenth century, not modern day. Modern-day Western romance confuses me a little, because the cowboys are always driving around in Cadillacs and European sports cars, because their families got rich in the oil rush and they just keep ranching as a sort of hobby. Cowboys ride horses and drive pick-up trucks, the junkier the better. Please see Sutherland, Kiefer, The Cowboy Way, not Dynasty.Anyway, the most amazing thing about t [...]

    2. O livro é bom! Mas, eu expecta tinha muitas expectativas para essa leitura e elas estavam muito altas. Assim, senti que faltou um "algo mais". E um epílogo não cairia mal Entretanto, no geral, é um boa história. 3.8/5.0

She has reported her stepfather after witnessing her mother's murder - and he is not a man to cross. Her life won't last long if she stays in Chicago.I love the scene where they have the 'interview' for the 'position' of wife. Jared Stratton has gotten himself roaring drunk (not something he usually does, so don' [...]

    5. Okay, yeah this is a harlequin romance novel. I do not deny it. And yes, it has some vivid, graphically inclined scenes, some of which I still remember from the first time I read it (nervously, sneakily, when I was probably 14-16.) That said, however, the story line is actually really good. It is an interesting book for more reasons than one! This book made me cry and gasp and well This is a great story. I recommend it to all females (that are not hard-core feminists, it probably wouldn't be goo [...]
