5.0 out of 5 stars A historical page turner
I have read all of Karen Robards' books and of her historical romances Desire in the Sun is the cream of the crop. The characters are believeable and react to problems appropretly. Leila is young and she acts like a young woman without the benifit of worldly experience. Joss is one of Robards best male characters he has a reason to hate Leila but he still has the...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea.
I must stop reading the older Robard books, they are no where near as good as the present ones and romantic /suspense is definitely her forte rather than simple romance. I could not understand the "hero" in this story at all. He moaned and complained about the heroine being a nuisance (or a "bitch" as he called her a number of times,) yet she never moaned...

I must stop reading the older Robard books, they are no where near as good as the present ones and romantic /suspense is definitely her forte rather than simple romance. I could not understand the "hero" in this story at all. He moaned and complained about the heroine being a nuisance (or a "bitch" as he called her a number of times,) yet she never moaned or complained, saved his life...for which he was not at all grateful, instead left her to fend for herself not in the least worried that she might be hurt...and was fiesty and brave. But he was so thick that he couldn't figure out why she did what she did at the end, instead responds with physical violence against her, which for a hero is a definate no no, yet guess what? yep, she fell in love with him, well there's clearly no accounting for taste. I didn't get this story, to be honest. Also if there had been fewer sex scenes or they had been shorter there might have been room for a more detailed ending, which was quite rushed. No, I think I'll stick to M/s Robards more recent and infinitely better offerings.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of the best books I've ever read!, 13 Nov. 1998
By A Customer
This is the first book by Karen Robards that I read and I loved it! Karen Robards has done a wonderful job of creating memorable characters and an interesting plot. Lilah and Joss show that love shows no boundries. I reccomend this book to anyone who likes romance stories with a plot to it.
