Book Description

15 April 1990
Of all the dukes in England, Jered Marcus Benton, the Duke of Bradford, was the wealthiest, most handsome -- and most arrogant. And of all London's ladies, he wanted the tender obedience of only one -- Caroline Richmond. She was a ravishing beauty from Boston, with a mysterious past and a fiery spirit. Drawn to the powerful duke, undeterred by his presumptuous airs, Caroline was determined to win his lasting love. But Bradford would bend to no woman -- until a deadly intrigue drew them enticingly close. Now, united against a common enemy, they would discover the power of the magnificent attraction that brought them together...a desire born in danger, but destined to flame into love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable! 19 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really loved this book and didn't want it to end. The dialogs between Bradford and Caroline had me chuckling out loud. I also really liked Bradford's best friend Milford. This is only my second Julie Garwood book but I'm anxious to read her others. Her book, The Bride, was also very good, but I really enjoyed the humor that was written in the dialog of Rebellious Desire. Now I need to go buy it for my collection because I had checked it out at the library! You won't be disappointed...read it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but I've read better from Garwood. 13 Nov 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book seemed a tad hollow to me, as if Garwoods heart wasn't really in it. It lacks the depth of her earlier work and although the heroine reminded me of her heroines of old, the hero was sadly lacking compared to the warriors she has created in her other novels.

If this is your first Garwood book do not start here as it isn't a true representation of her skill. Read 'The Secret,' 'The Prize' or 'The Bride' first.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing! Easily dismissed from memory. 27 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've come to expect to be instantly hooked with Ms. Garwood's particular style of writing. However,this is one that's only good for one read. It lacks a certain something that usually gets me involved in the story. If you want her best books try The Lion's Lady and The Bride.

3.0 out of 5 stars not as good as other offerings by this author 6 Mar 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. If there was a 3.5 Id have given that instead. It was a good read, not much by way of storyline. It was a classic romantic book with a silly side story that they could have done without. The pace of the book was a tad slow and found myself skipping through scenes. Not up to her usual standard but worth a read

3.0 out of 5 stars rebellious deflation 30 Sep 2012
By allana
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
started off well enough quite enticing but lost its luster almost as if it deflated !!!!!SPOILER he was all alphaness in the beginning that gradually became slightly obsessive then culminated into a bit of an org she on the other hand though this was the so called 1800s was a 2012 female started off confident devil may care, mouth shooting, gun totting female but slowly became depressed then slightly submissive almost like an abuse victim but she was never abused ,she cried after they had sex every time which grinded my nerves the heat between the two deflated as he left her for weeks at a time even chucked her out of his house ,and though most of the time we were told it was for her sake no emotion on his end was felt ,we were also introduced to an interesting character in the beginning who totally disappeared from the story ,left me wondering why was he described in the first place???????????????last issue i had was the whole plot building throughout the book on bad guy was done away with in two lines weird????i love garwood books this was ok but not wow and left me wondering it was neither here nor there!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing early attempt 5 Sep 2007
By S. Lim
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm a huge fan of Ms Garwood, and own every single one of her books, but I found this one a disappointment. The heroine, Caroline, interesting to begin with, quickly becomes irritating with her tendency to cry at the drop of a hat. This is surprising as most of her heroines are quirky but lovely. The hero doesn't appeal, and his jealous streak annoys unlike her other heroes with the same trait. The prose is very stilted, and the sentences don't quite flow, which makes it difficult to get into the story. Maybe because this is one of her earlier books and she hadn't quite developed her style yet. I didn't enjoy this book, nor Gentle Warrior (for the same reasons). However I will recommend her books written from 1990 onwards.
