Read full description of the books Duncan's Bride:May, 2012 Update
Read this last May and had to read it again for 2012! Loved it! With all the recordings of less-than-desirable books from the 80's & 90's, why can't they put this one on audio?
★★★★★ Five full stars! It has been 21 years since I last read Duncan’s Bride and it is still holds up to the ravishes of time and my fickle changes in reading material. I love Linda Howard at her best and I found her here in this quick-read of a Silhouette Intimate Moments publication. Ms. Howard has the ability to show us the magic of stubborn people falling in love whilst dealing with the everyday realism of daily life. The dialogue is believable, yet held my interest. The characters interesting, the setting beautiful, the love scenes intimate.He leaned against the kitchen cabinet and crossed his arm. “Are you scraping the house?”
“Don’t pull that Gary Cooper routine on me. I want it stopped right now.”
“The routine or the scraping?”
“The house can’t be painted until the old paint is scraped off,” she said reasonably.
“I can’t afford the paint, so it doesn’t make any difference. And I don’t want you climbing around on a fourteen-foot ladder. What if you fell while I’m out on the range?”
“What if you got hurt out on the range by yourself?” she retorted. “I’m careful, and I haven’t had any trouble so far. It shouldn’t take too much longer.”
“No,” he said, enunciating carefully. “I can’t afford the paint, and even if I could I wouldn’t let you do the scraping.”
“You don’t have time for it, so who else is going to do it?”
“For the third time,” he yelled, “I can’t afford the paint! What does it take to make you understand that?”Yes, Reese Duncan is a “bold and arrogant and quick-tempered” Montana rancher, but Madelyn Patterson is just the New Yorker to calm him down while conversely stirring his blood to fever pitch.
Reese is determined not to give his heart a second time and Madelyn is just as determined to win it. Some of the best scenes, the ones that made me giggle with glee in the back of my throat, take place in grumpy Floris’ café, provided by her acerbic nature; however, it is the Duncans, in the end, providing the area’s best entertainment for miles around.
Well worth the read!
