Kathleen E. Woodiwiss Is Exceptional

A stunning sequel to "The Flame and The Flower".

My favorite author!

I really love Kathleen's books. I first read "The Flame and the Flower" twenty years ago and I have reread it so many times that I've had to buy four books! I've read all of her books and loved everyone of them. This book was great. I was so happy to find out what had happened to Brandon and Heather. The only thing I didn't like was that this book came out before "A Season Beyond a Kiss" which is Jeff's(Brandon's brother) story. The love scenes in this book are as hot and sensual as all of her other books. Beau is a wonderful hero just like his father. And Cerynise is just strong enough to handle him yet appear shy and fragile at the same time. Buy this book and reread it again and again.

Wonderful in audio form

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, the care with which the time period was represented, and the reader, James Daniels. He was able to closely represent the many accents in the story.Nicely done. Highly recommend the audio version.

Another Hit!

I read some of the other reviews, and hesitated to buy this book. However, since I've never been disappointed in Kathleen's other books, I went ahead, and boy am I glad I did! I think this is almost as good as Flame and the Flower. Once again, Kathleen Woodiwiss shares a love story the way no one else does.

Could'nt put it down.

The Flame and The Flower was my first Woodiwiss novel. I waited 16 years for the sequel, and it was well worth the wait! Heather and Brandon are exactly as I had hoped they'd be, still happy and in love! The story is fluent, entertaining. I laughed alot. Ms. Woodiwiss blends a kind of humor with romance in this book that captivated me! She creates real characters and a vivid plot. I can't wait to see what she has in store for the Birminghams next time!

Great book, I'm now a fan of Woodiwiss

My mother has always been a fan of Kathleen Woodiwiss and has tried, unsuccessfully, my whole life to get me to read and enjoy her books. I've tried, "Shanna," "The Wolf and the Dove," and all the others, but never could get into them. However, when my mom bought her copy of "The Elusive Flame" I figured I'd try to again read "The Flame and The Flower" because I tend to like series. I wasn't dissapointed. "The Flame and The Flower" was excellent and by the time I finished "The Elusive Flame" I found myself digging all the other Woodiwiss novels out and planning to read them. I've read some of the other bland reviews of "The Elusive Flame" and wonder, did you all read the same book I did? The characters were *not* one demensional, they were very much like Brandon and Heather. You'd expect Beau to be like his father, which he is and you'd expect him to fall for someone like his mother -- which he did. Cerynise is a lot like Heather in so many ways, the only difference being that Cerynise is a little more outspoken. All in all, it was a great read and one I'll visit many times in the future. I anxiously await the next book in the sage that began with Heather and Bradon. Thank you, Ms. Woodiwiss for an excellent book and a great group of characters!
