Cole me las ha hecho pasar canutas pero me encanta. Alaina e Cole sono due personaggi veramente ben caratterizzati, mi sono piaciuti pure i loro difetti! I admired her fortitude and definitely had her smart mouth. I purchased this on Kindle. I do remember snatching every moment I could to get in a chapter or two, and I think escaping into Alaina and Cole’s world kept me sane. Tengo que meditar la review para el blog But luckily my years in Dickensian retreat prepared me quite well for that obstacle.

Here, the heroic pining at the end isn’t forced, it isn’t egregious and it isn’t so blatantly one-sided from the hero! Jan 03, Cheap and Lazy rated it really liked it Shelves: It was like a really bad 80’s horror flick, only bodice-ripper style. Yes, it does follow some of the typ Okay so I read this book in Junoir High. The tension-filled, witty altercations were often fun mainly because there was a genuine back-and-forth.

Ashes in the Wind by Kathleen Woodiwiss

Essentially, the romance handicaps them from thinking and acting logically, especially Cole. First I have to say that I really enjoy the author’s writing style, it’s so much different from the modern books that it’s like in another universe. What I didn’t like here was the story, or how the author chose to develop asshes, and every major event that happened in the book. I only was able to finish it by skimming.

I thought Woodiwiss jathleen the bickering from the first half of part two fun and balanced, a rare talent amongst romance novelists and yet she still spent time on their tenderness and caring for each other after they prevailed against the misconception which separated them intimately.

Alaina’s father and one of her brothers has already died serving the South in the war and her mother passes away shortly thereafter. The similarities drop away after the southern setting and prewar life disappears for these two. Y Alaina me gusta mucho, no como la insoportable de Shanna. Although Alaina fumes over Cole sending a proxy to say the marriage words, she does finally travels asyes to his estates in Minnesota as kayhleen wife.

As I was reading it, ashse started coming back to me and I used to read a lot of Woodiwiss in the early ’80s so I must have read this book. I originally read this as a young teen and loved it. Captain Latimer had not even been suspicious. The book is written in two woodiwiiss, much like Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind. Cole being rescued from the river – 2 times.


Al dulls Cole’s pain with woodiwisz liquor once Cole is in the guest bedroom. You get the wretched feelings of being torn apart by loyalties and ideas of decency and when they get sacrificed.

At the Craighugh home, Cole meets Alaina’s cousin Roberta, a twenty-two year-old superficial beauty after money. Two beings wrapped in the pure bliss of their union, proceeding in eager, uncaring haste, giving all to the other and in return finding everything and more.

He pities me and plays his savior’s role most heartily, but he does not want me for a wife. To me any ways.

A Journal Of My Reviews: Ashes in the Wind, by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss [4]

Part I and Part II of this book really felt disconnected to me. Will be anxiously awaiting your reply. If you are not a fan of historical romances you may want to pass, but you katthleen be missing a very good story.

They felt as though they were almost two completely different stories. Cole and Alaina dismiss the clues too easily earlier. Jacques reappears, and Cole’s stepmother Tamara Latimer also makes an wknd to explain some of the intrigue from part one.
