Sweet Savage Love has all the twisted appeal of one of those R. L. Stein novels for teenagers. The heroine, Virginia Brandon, is such a bubble-headed tease that you want to slap her silly, the way the hero frequently does, which may be why you keep turning the pages. The hero, Steve Morgan, has the morals of an alley cat and little else to recommend him. His one redeeming quality is that he hates Virginia almost as much as you do. Each of them singly is mind-numbingly stupid, and the two of them together are positively Martian. The only sensible thing either one of them does is eat, drink, or sleep -- and even then, they usually screw it up. I think what I love best about this book is that end up married, and never did any couple deserve each other more.

This is the greatest love story of all time. I love the characters Ginny and Steve, everything you can imagine happens to them. I've read this book over and over again, its that good.

I know that a lot of readers were a bit enraged over the whole date-rape thing, but I think that both Ginny and Steve used the excuse of rape to mask their feelings for eachother, and excuse an act that, according to moral code at the time, should not have happened. Why should there only be daring and free heroes? Why is it wrong for heroines to explore the dark side of their passionate natures and delve into the nether regions of their souls? Ginny showed us that a woman can be strong as well as beautiful and loving and giving. Rosemary Rogers should be acclaimed for her ground-breaking work in a time when her concepts were taboo. I have read Sweet Savage Love many times, and I plan to do so again.

Sweet Savage Love was the very first romance I read at the tender age of 15! I went to a very strict convent school and found it hidden away in the very stuffy and boring school libary. I suspect that if the nuns had realised its content they would have burnt it! I loved it and it kept me entertained as I read it over and over again until I left school. I am so glad it has be republished as it is without doubt the best romance I have ever read even though I am now 32 and have read more romance books than I've had hot diners. If you like your heros to be real men instead of overly romantic simpering wimps then you will love this. Steve morgan is the ultimate dark, dangerous hero and the heroine Ginny turns in to a strong resiliant woman through hardship and learning to survive. She fights her attraction to Steve and although he is forceful during the love scenes, she wants him as much as he does her.
If you buy this book you will read it again and again, it is the best by Rogers, although all her other novels are great as well.

One of the first and best romance novels I ever read. Few writers today can depict the remarkable intensity between the lovers as this author can. Their story lingers with the reader long after the novel ends.

This was brought as memorabilia purposes after a discussion with my mother regarding the 50 shades trilogy. She said that she was given this book to read by my late great grandmother when she was very young not realising the content of the book. We laughed and i felt that i needed to read this to truely understand and to be a part of the memory of my great grandmother. I have to say that i was very impressed with the condition of the book for how old it is and although havent finished the book can understand why my great grandmmother got a telling off :0) Very quick delivery also.

This is the first book in the Steve and Ginny series which I originally read years ago and I love it .I have ordered the next 2 books and I m really looking forward to reading them again even though I know the ending.To anyone who, like me,thought the shades trilogy a load of rubbish I would recommend you read about the adventures of Steve and Ginny
