“Sweet Savage Love” by Rosemary Rogers

Back of the Book:

Ginny Brandon is swept from the ballrooms of Paris to the desert sands of Mexico and into the arms of charismatic mercenary Steve Morgan. But this fearless heroine and “hero of all heroes” must first endure countless unforeseen dangers before they can enjoy sensual, exhilarating passion that burns between them.

Karla’s Review on

Rogers is an author that I’m glad I never read back when I was younger. I doubt I would have appreciated the glorious excess, and I’m not sure just how I would have reacted to the Alpha+1ness that is Steve Morgan. He’s a nasty piece of work, an unrepentant horndog, and delights in tormenting his lady love Ginny. But she gives as good as she gets, and I can’t can’t can’t wait to get back to their sweet savage saga. (read her entire review here)

[xrr rating=4.5/5]

The very worst thing about this book is that it is exactly what it sounds like: a no-brainer, cotton candy, fluffy romance novel. I think the proper term is “bodice ripper.” All in all, this isn’t a book I would recommend to everyone, but it is a book that I would recommend to romance readers. :-)

The very best thing about this book is that it can really stick with you. I first read this book over a decade ago. Even after my original book was sold at a garage sale (thanks, dad) and I forgot both the title and author’s name, I still remembered this book. Well, I remembered it as a trilogy. When I went book hunting to find it (took me a while, too, considering that all I remembered was “Ginny and Steve”), I discovered that there were six books in a loose series.


This book will be placed under the Chunkster Challenge 2011 and the The TwentyEleven Challenge.
