5.0 out of 5 stars How does she do it? 19 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read and re-read every book that Johanna Lindsey has published...and I will probably continue to do so. This book, as well as Warrior's Woman, has pride of place on my bookshelf (and let me tell you my bookshelf is vast). Falon, to my mind is the man of most womens dreams...I just have to keep asking myself how Johanna keeps coming up with heros you really wish were real and heroines (who, although too gorgeous for words) you actually find yourself liking. I know some people might be a bit put off to know that there are scenes in which a woman gets spanked, but hey, it doesn't say it's right and it's an entirely different world.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed. 19 Mar 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I never read reviews for Johanna Lindseys books because I love them all, but what a disappointment to find a futuristic book with talking computers, transferring and spaceships etc.. Where was her beautiful historical romances when women were swept off their feet. Looking at the reviews I won't be buying Warrior Womem which I assume is set in the same era.

Ihave been reading romance since 1982 and I'm only twenty-nine. Johanna Lindsey is by far the most imaginative writer. I loved the story with Shanelle and Falon. Spanking or not, it is an absolute must read. I myself am proud to say i have read it at least six times a year along with Warrior's Woman. Martha and Brock are such wonderful characters. I laughed so hard each and every time Aurelet gets bested by Shanelle in the fight. The only thing missing is a sequel to this book with Shanelle's brother. That warrior needs a woman who'll "blow his socks off" as Martha would say.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of Johanna Lindsey's best books 27 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When ever I am ill or feel down I pick up one of Johanna Lindsey's books to make me feel better. I'm transported to a fantasy world and her love scenes turn me on, because they are not overly crude. I particularly like the Keeper of the Heart and Warrior's Woman because the fantasy is given full reign when it is set in the future, there are no rules to abide by on behaviour. Please give us more in this series Johanna.

3.0 out of 5 stars No her best but no bad either. 3 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I own every book Johanna Lindsey has written, and truth this is the only one I wish I wouldn't have wasted my money on. It isn't that it was a bad book but I don't approve of any abuse. Some people don't think that hitting a person in the butt is bad. No matter what it is hitting and it is meant to hurt and humiliate a person. I don't see it as romantic or erotic about this form of abuse. I hope nobody tries to justify the abuse that he did to her. Just thought I should warn people about the down part of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars KEEPER OF THE HEART was fun to read 6 Aug 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
KEEPER OF THE HEART was fun to read. Shanelle and Falon were enigmatic and very alive characters.
There was one thing Lindsey did in this book that in my opinion was unforgivable: She legitimate wife beating. Whenever Falon thinks Shanelle did something wrong, he punishes her by beating her. He even has the nerve to try to comfort her afterward and to tell her the punishment was for her own good. Of course Shanell is so weak that she is angry with him only for a few hours and then she forgives him. In the end everyone even convinces her that the beating wasn't so bad after all. It is just unbelievable. I believe that as a writer Lindsey as the responsibility to educate her readers to stand up for themselves and never to be satisfied with something less then equal rights for husband and wife. I believe that in fiction, no writer as the right to write about wife beating as legitimate thing, and it doesn't matter which century or society he is writing about. Lindsey is no exception.

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read this book only last summer of 1997 and I really enjoyed ever page. At first I didn't quite understand the setting of the story because I didn't read Warriors Woman first which was supposed to be the story of Shanelle's mother and father but anyway as I progressed, I could finally understand and imagine what type of scenery it was supposed to be. I fell in love with Falon because after he beat his wife, he consoled her and comforted her and loved her to pieces. It's not exactly termed as wife beating -- I personally didn't view it that way -- it's more of teaching her a lesson so she wouldn't do it again, lest the hurt it would cause her. To Ms. Lindsey, keep squeezing out those romantic ideas -- I've read them all and I can't wait to read another one of your creations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where's Dalden's book? 5 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved Keeper of the Heart. Johanna Lindsey you should have your female character spanked twice in the next book. Then at the end of the book re-emphasize to all those complaining folks that IT ISN'T REAL. I read to escape reality, if it means escaping to another world so be it. Or maybe those complainers should be beaten and then spanked so that they can distinguish the difference. All I ask is that you do not change your style of writing because of a few small-minded people who have trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality. Don't let me down Johanna Lindsey. Keep up the good work.
