The usual boy meets girl, fall in love, boy leaves girl, etc,
By A Customer
This review is from: This Time Love (Mass Market Paperback)
If you're an Elizabeth Lowell fan, you'll be used to great love scenes, tingling sensuality and a lot of intensity that really satisfies. This book does not quite hit the Lowell spot as well as her other books.
Joy and Gabriel met when they young and, as usual, consumated their attraction just before he had to leave as he had to explore the world, etc. So, off he goes to have an exciting life and make himself even more irresistible. The heroine stays put, pregnant, having the child, and never moving forward emotionally or even physically. (sounds familiar?)
Anyway, back he comes, the brave hero and the attraction is still there. He finds about the child and they fall in love again once they can forgive each other.
This is not a bad book at all, just way too predictable. The heroine is a little dull and you really do feel that she should have pulled herself together and gotten a life.
The book itself is well researched and the descriptions of caving are fascinating. I don't think I would ever be able to do something like that.
I'd borrow it from a friend, rather than rush out to buy it. It's OK, but not a keeper.
