Book Description

1 Mar 1998
From the one and only Sandra Brown comes a searing novel of romantic suspense. . . as a beautiful young mother falls victim to a brazen crime. . . and a seductive captor. . . .

When her divorce was finally granted, Miranda Price thought the worst was behind her.  Now she could get on with her life, far from the public scrutiny and private misery that went along with being Representative Price's wife.  But when Miranda decides to take their young son on a vacation out West, she stumbles into a mother's worst nightmare.  Snatched off a train full of vacationing sightseers, she and her son become the captives of an enigmatic stranger.  Miranda knows she will do anything to save her child. . . even if it means fighting her own treacherous feelings for the man who holds her hostage. . . even if it means facing up to a shocking revelation that will make her question her past, her choices, and the woman she's become.

1.0 out of 5 stars not a good message 10 July 1998
By A Customer
I was looking forward to another entertaining book by Ms Brown and found a disturbing inappropriate message instead. What is probably one of the number fears of parents today...kidnapping....that it was treated so lightly is inexcusible. What were Hawke's redeeming qualities? not enough for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good one 28 Mar 1999
By A Customer
I have read over half of Mrs. Browns books and love everyone I read, of course there are a couple that are my favorites and this is definately one of them!! So I will for-warn anyone that has a problem with kidnapping DO NOT READ THIS ONE. It clearly states what this book is about so dont buy it if you have a problem with it, because personally I loved this book. I think must women have a secret need to be ordered around but they just dont have the nerve to say it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick, not so lighthearted, romantic read... 23 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
After reading the mixed reviews, I wasn't too sure if I'd like this book. So, I checked out the unabridged audiobook version from the library and took a chance. The verdict? I liked it. While it's not your typical "soft" romance, filled with fluff and sugary sweet words -- which I'm not criticizing since I LOVE historical romance novels for just that reason -- it was rather interesting and had enough romance to keep me reading. I agree that the characters could have been fleshed out a little more -- for instance, Hawke did appear to be a little stiff and unyielding, which did make you wonder why Miranda fell so fast for him. But, her son was a likeable little guy, and Hawke did have some likeable characteristics. And since Miranda's ex-husband was a bit of a jerk, it wasn't hard to imagine why she'd fall so easily for Hawke, who had some of the qualities she'd hoped for in her marriage. All in all, I found it to be a satisfying read--until I got to the last sentence. Ms. Brown could have left that out!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for the reader who enjoys gentle romances. 4 Dec 1998
By A Customer
While I enjoy Sandra Brown's writing I could not enjoy this book. I find Hawk's treatmant of Miranda despicable.I could not find one single reason for her to fall in love with him. He kidnaps her son for his own gain, one minute he's threatening her, the next he's coming on to her & the next he's calling her a slut.He forces his kisses & "gropes" upon her, the scenarios remind me more of a date rape than a seduction. I wouldn't want a man to read this & think that is what women like. Perhaps if his stance on the Lone Puma Mine & Native American culture had been covered in more depth he might have had redeemed himself somewhat.. I also found the conclusion too abrupt & tied up a little too neatly.
