The Particulars: Historical romance, Avon, 1992, In Print, Book 5 in Series
Heiress to the dazzling Bragg empire, beautiful, headstrong socialite Lucy Bragg lives a life that defies convention. Dark and handsome half-breed Shozkay Savage lives an outlaw's life on the edge. They inhabit different worlds -- hers opulent and glamorous, his dangerous and untamed. But on the vast and sweeping plains of Texas, their worlds collide...Is It In Wendy's TBR?: Nope.
Abducted and held for ransom, Lucy despises Shoz for his arrogance ... yet is drawn to the magnificent and mysterious fugitive by a shameless, all-consuming desire. Sworn to escape him but betrayed by her heart, she will follow Shoz from the glittering world of New York high society to the tropical heat of revolution-swept Cuba -- braving scandal and heartbreak, risking life itself for a bold and passionate love.
Any Reviews?: This is an older book, so not really. Customer reviews over at Amazon range from 2 to 5 Stars.
Anything Else?: This one has been reprinted a couple of times, the covers getting more bland with each print run - but dang, you just can't top that Old School cover. I love the female model's hair and make-up. Looks like she's on her way to a Poison concert and figures "What the hell? I have some time to kill. Why not shoot a romance novel cover before I throw my bra at C.C. DeVille?"
And Shozkay Savage? ::blink:: Seriously? We're going there? And revolution-swept Cuba? We're going there?! ::double blink:: Words always seem to fail me when trolling through Old School Romance Novel back cover copy. Those copy writers had a gift I tells ya.
