“Bound by Desire” by Rosemary Rogers

Back of the Book:

The magnificent legend of Steve and Ginny Morgan continues as their headstrong, ravishingly beautiful daughter, Laura, and Trent Challenger, the untamed rogue determined to possess her, defiantly resist the inevitable longings of their bodies and souls.

From ecstasy in Parisian boudoirs to endless nights of London pleasure and dark rituals in a castle in Spain, Laura and Trent are tossed from crest to crest of ever more molten desire — until at last they confront their destinies and surrender to the soaring splendor of a love beyond time…

Fruit Loop’s Review on

Fans of Steve and Ginny hoping for equal passion with their now-grown daughter Laura will be disappointed. As a heroine, she’s spoiled and brainless and I frankly didn’t like her. She has no character traits with which to sympathize and neither does the hero.

My main complaint is that there’s little passion and still little romance although Rogers describes scenes of rape and sexual torture in loving detail. Although I’m not anti-lesbian, I prefer to see the heroine having sex with the hero rather than her female friends. This book left me feeling like I needed a bath and the violence is the stuff of nightmares. Avoid, or buy used! (read her entire review here)

Format Read: real book

[xrr rating=3.5/5]

The very worst thing about this book is that it just doesn’t live up to expectations. Rogers seems to have been going more for shock value that story-telling at some points.

The very best thing about this book is that it certainly is entertaining.
