You read it the same way you reach into a bag of potato chips and realize it’s empty. I hadn’t heard anything about that and it makes me sad that such a wonderful author had died. I liked him being around i it actually brought feelings out of Erienne and he would sometimes say funny things. I guess Woodiwiss liked the idea of her heroine getting that type of attention, but for me it got old, and I thought, if anyone, a woman writing this book would put things like boobs aside since she has a pair herself and sees them everyday wokdiwiss they’re nothing much.

This would make a much better movie than Fifty Shades will ever hope to be. Wjnter exists a lot of evidence for her too.

To Love A Highlander. He was accordingly cold whenever they had to speak, and when suggested Erienne be forced to share their wealth or come visit, he made very clear that his wife made her own decisions.

The boot of his right leg bore a thick, heavy, wedge-shaped sole, as if for the purpose of straightening a clubbed or twisted foot. Woodiwiss pgs 3 out of 5 Stars Being kathledn I haven’t read a novel in a long, long time, quite hypocritical being that I aim to be an author myselfI stepped into reading this with a really optimistic demeanor.


Seton offers but both Erienne and her father Avery reject Seton’s proposal because they supposedly hate him. Finally, Avery simply decides to sell her to the highest bidder.

She even complained ij his limp, for God’s sake, saying it made her cringe listening to the “step, scrape, step, scrape” sound of him coming into her room.

She long relished creating original narratives, and by age 6 was telling herself stories at night to help herself fall asleep. Erienne evolves in the story. Refresh and try again.

One thing that I give Woodiwiss credit for, her decisions on plot aside, is that she has the ability to create brain candy for the reader, where you’re just happy to munch on it and have an escape for a few hours. The upper part of his body remained obscured in the darkness of the hall, but when he passed where the light was better, Erienne gasped as she saw the reason why he moved with an odd, twisting motion.

I would so write fanfic for them if I knew how to imitate the styling of the book. Jan 06, maricar rated it really liked it Shelves: In this book, she really doesn’t, at least for the first half of the book.

Does all these facts make me love her books, and this story in particular, any less? The Day ktahleen the Duchess. When you take a deep look into her actions, you realize that she’s kind of a shallow twit, though, whose only real value in this society lies within her physical beauty, of which she conveniently isn’t all that aware.

Retro Review – A Rose in Winter by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss

Although some Amazon reviews claim even the first few pages were annoying, I was pleased with them. Yes No Thanks for your feedback!

He claimed he may have created his own personal hell because he had bought her marriage but she wanted nothing to do with him. Despite everything going on around him and having to deal with a whole shitstorm of issues as a returning lord who’s suspected of murder, he really wanted a woman to “save him from his solitude” you might say, and Erienne was beginning to realize that she might be okay with that.
