Very enjoyable story about a modern day marriage of convenience that included some exciting battles with the elements. I liked how the romance developed especially the heroine's attitude. Montana rancher Reese advertised for a wife and Madelyn was one of the few who responded. Book] Free Download Dreaming of You Tobin, Alvin E.
House PhD. A book is one of the important ways to get more knowledge and reference. Today, developing the online book becomes very increasingly. The content of this book is very good.
Life on the ranch is hard, there are adjustments for both of them, some previous baggage they have to deal with, and some sexy times Overall Pace of Story: Good. I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well. Instalove: Yes for the h, but the H takes a while to develop stronger feelings.
H Hero rating: 2. He was a little less than okay for me. I liked her. They have some tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story. View 2 comments.

I fully expected Duncan's Bride to be one of those weepy, Hallmark, watch the dove fly into the sunset and wipe away a tear kind of book.
Sweet and schmaltzy. Hell on wheels NO! Madelyn is a kick-asss, spine of steel heroine that made laugh out loud. I want to be her. Madelyn, her reactions as well as her actions to Reese and her circumstances are the primary reasons to read this. The steamy sex doesn't hurt. Not overly explicit but hot. Reese is an emotionally and financially bankrupt Wyoming ra I fully expected Duncan's Bride to be one of those weepy, Hallmark, watch the dove fly into the sunset and wipe away a tear kind of book.
Reese is an emotionally and financially bankrupt Wyoming rancher with a heart of stone. Fleeced by his evil ex-wife, he wants a cool MOC with a "breeder" so he writes a want ad. Madelyn, a sophisticated and sweet New Yorker, sees it and thinks what the heck: a trip to Wyoming couldn't be worse than a blind date or meeting someone in a bar. Reese and Madelyn are both poleaxed by their visceral reaction to each other.
Initially, Reese rejects her as she is too much like his old wife, a painted up big city woman to quote I Love Lucy , but they end up together anyway. It is obvious from the beginning that Madelyn is head over heels with love and lust for Reese. He's got the lust part down all right. From the get go, he is an unmitigated, grumpy bastard, but she can hold her own without succumbing to tears, wimpiness or manipulation. If you are a romance reader, you have to acknowledge that the fictional as well as magical P usually means that virgins reach the stratosphere their first time.
Eventually things right themselves, but only after Madelyn throws down the gauntlet about how mediocre the passion has been. Great scene. She doesn't react; she acts. Believe me, when she does get a head of steam going it is quite effective.
Reese is a little harder to love as he is so incredibly bitter. All I could think was this guy needed a good lawyer with his first wife. He is drawn to Madelyn and can't figure her out. He crosses the line with her one last time, and without spoiling it she makes him suffer. Smart girl. There are some great secondary characters; namely Floris the hatchet faced owner of the diner.
My only regret is that when Madelyn finds out how bad April, the ex, took Reese, she tells her cool and probably somewhat evil step-brother to ruin them.
We never hear about that which is too bad. A great read. Thank you Goodread reviewers. Re-read Just as good the second time. Madelyn just makes this book. She's strong, sweet and loving without sacrificing her sense of self and self-respect, as task few heroines seem to grasp. She is one of the rare heroines that you would want as a friend.

I was thisclose in returning it to the library, thinking it might not be as good as I hoped for. I don't even know why I thought that, but it was excellent.
Reece Duncan is a Montana rancher hard on finances and time. He'd been burned before by an ex-wife determined to wreck him and bankrupt his ranch. Not again. This time, Reece was going to advertise for a woman built to withstand labour and the expectations of living on a ranch. So what if he doesn't lov 4. So what if he doesn't love her? He doesn't need to be at the mercy of his heart ever again. But he does want children, and he doesn't have time to court, so a newspaper ad is what he takes out.
When Madelyn answers Reece's ad for a wife in the country papers, she doesn't seriously consider it working out. But I loved seeing her reaction to Reece, in all his alpha-male, masculine glory. She fell hard and fast, and although I'm not much for insta-lust, I thought it worked here. But I did feel bad for Maddie. She didn't bargain on Reece being so bitter and jaded by his experiences with his ex. There were times he was cruel even, saying things out of anger that wouldn't be so easily forgiven after he cooled down.
He was such a cannon at times, but at others he was so sweet, kind, funny and considerate. He took a while coming to the conclusion that Maddie wasn't like his ex, nor had anything in common with her.
The patience Maddie had dealing with him, gheesh! Reece would try the calmness of a saint. I loved how Maddie finally decided to do something drastic. She didn't deserve to be treated badly, although I could understand why Reece reacted the way he did to what she had done. Anyways, this was so good, and steamy, too.By Linda Howard.

On the other hand, when Reese first saw her, he knew immediately that she was perfect for his bed but not in his life. I loved how Maddie finally decided to do something drastic. Kudos to this book because it's set back in the 80's and it mentions electric typewriters and people still communicate via mail. It took her breath, and her limbs immediately went numb. She pulled the rope back to her and ran to the pond, edging out on the ice herself.

Thirty-six were dead, and there could be calves too small to find under all the snow. This same feeling had accompanied almost every first in her life, but it had never been a forerunner of disaster. Loved it and definitely will reread this one again. LH writes some pretty sensual scenes. You would openly accept him in total abandon.
