Forced to accept Damien's help and protection, she discovers that love needn't mean surrender; it means sharing. Ms. Byron writes with a sensitivity sure to bring tears to your eyes.Review:
For Eve Byron, writing must be a passion that rages. In the pages of her book Love Me Not, she feeds the fire of romance with a pair of truly dynamic characters. The plot is aggressive and bold, building and burning throughout the book to the very end. If you enjoy heated romance and cascading emotions, Love Me Not will capture your imagination and your heart. Kathy is simply tired of being controlled, led, and watched by her brother, step-brother, and everyone else in her family. You would think they felt she couldn't follow a straight line to her own bedroom. When she reaches her majority, however, she will be free! And it is freedom that has kept her sane through her silly coming-out Season, not to mention helping her deal with Tony Edgewater, that pompous fool who wanted to marry without even meeting her. Her greatest problem now is being forced into a marriage with the Duke of Westbrook -- Damien, the gallant knight of her childhood dreams. Damien is far from gallant; he is an overbearing, arrogant bully. She gives him his due for rescuing her from the earl, the man who had tormented her as a child. Damien was there with outstretched arms and gentle strokes of reassurance. This marriage threatens her very existence, her long-awaited freedom. Damien's own life is in turmoil with Kathy under his roof. Between their easy and growing companionship and the gnawing ache of his desire, he is fearful of this closeness. All his life he has been responsible; now he craves his own form of freedom, a freedom from responsibility. In Kathy's eyes, he reads love and it shakes his resolve to the core. Damien and Kathy fight like demons, but they share a desire and passion for each other that cannot be denied. They are drawn to each other, unable to resist the need they each feed on. With the past fully disclosed, they find themselves facing death and love on the same playing field. This is a field they are both too familiar with, but this time they must save each other.Eve Byron has a sure-fire recipe for earth-shaking love stories. This was one of those books that you'll keep in your collection of those that stir more than your heart strings -- you'll feel it all the way to your toes. Emotion has a life of its own. Damien and Kathy are both strong, enduring characters -- aggressive and beautiful.Karen Ellington -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times
