    Read 3 starsRe read 3 starsOkay, I ve read this book many times over the years Previously I didn t love it because it was a western Well, now I like westerns and I still don t love it Why Well, let me tell you.1 Weird plot happenings that didn t add to the story and just made me go huh For example, view spoiler 1 twin villain near the end seeking money and revenge, well, mostly just money The hero and heroine could have easily gotten together without it at that point 2 the heroine Read 3 starsRe read 3 starsOkay, I ve read this book many times over the years Previously I didn t love it because it was a western Well, now I like westerns and I still don t love it Why Well, let me tell you.1 Weird plot happenings that didn t add to the story and just made me go huh For example, view spoiler 1 twin villain near the end seeking money and revenge, well, mostly just money The hero and heroine could have easily gotten together without it at that point 2 the heroine s panther really pointless other than to show that the big gunfighter is scared of a little ole panther WTF Who wouldn t be scared of a panther living in some crazy girl s house hide spoiler Why are these things in the book They aren t cute or interesting and didn t advance the plot that I could see, just annoying.2 Parents that don t speak for 10 years while living in the same house and make their daughter heroine be their conduit for conversation or sniping, as it mainly seemed to be WTF That s just irrational, not to mention child abuse 3 The heroine s meddling yes, I guess it was supposed to be cute and quirky but it was annoying And when it came to the hero, pretty much emasculating She s so determined to protect him that she won t let this famous gunfighter have his own showdown Give your head shake, girl Why don t you just put a dress on him and call him missus.4 The hero s lost family It was okay, I guess but I would have been okay without it Not everything needs to be neatly wrapped up by the end of the book.Despite this, there were things I like about this book Mainly Angel He s a great hero, loved him in the previous book in the series, loved him in this one And I liked the idea of the heroine who s unremarkable at first but who grows on the hero until he pretty much thinks the sun and moon rise and set especially for her.And I m a sucker for marriage of convenience forced wedding plots It s all so 1800 s crazy

    When a gunslinger arrives in place of someone else, at the ranch her father left her alone on, Cassie Stuart knew she had to run him off before he made things worse for her Having sent for a peacemaker to settle a neighboring feud not someone who would stir up a hornet s nest the man known as the Angel of Death simply would not do.Angel had never met a woman quite like the Stuart girl, not exactly a beauty but definitely intriguing At first thinking he didn t even like her, he found himself When a gunslinger arrives in place of someone else, at the ranch her father left her alone on, Cassie Stuart knew she had to run him off before he made things worse for her Having sent for a peacemaker to settle a neighboring feud not someone who would stir up a hornet s nest the man known as the Angel of Death simply would not do.Angel had never met a woman quite like the Stuart girl, not exactly a beauty but definitely intriguing At first thinking he didn t even like her, he found himself surprised to want to stick around and help her out To exact their revenge on Cassie for her meddling ways, the townsfolk force her to marry Angel which ends up being little hardship as Cassie sees to his lonely noble heart and he s decided she s gotten better looking with every passing day It s when her parents who ve only talked to each other thru Cassie for years show up, that things get turned awry and Cassie and Angel not telling each other their true fears about romantic relationships, doesn t help either.Angel takes off soon after, believing he s not good enough for Cassie, and Cassie though incredibly hurt lets him leave Still, being who she is, she cant let it completely go She resolves to find Angel s missing parents Which of course she does sighAnother sweet, quirky romance from the Dowager of Romance These oldies by Lindsey read so easily and charm every time Even on 100th re read

    This was an enjoyable story, where I imagined the actress from Bridget Jones playing the lead, as the main character kept getting herself into uncomfortable circumstances Her saviour came from an unlikely place and stuck to her to prevent further calamaties except for an instance of going to the bar to get drunk which seemed out of character of dedicating himself to protecting her.

    Johanna Lindsey knows how to write an entertaining love story I laughed out loud several times Angel s reactions to Cassie s pet were amusing view spoiler A panther I went with it because the wild animal turned domesticated could also be a metaphor for Angel s ultimate taming by Cassie, being pretty wild himself hide spoiler I wasn t expecting to like Angel as much as I did His brief appearances in the preceding books combined with his shady background didn t make me think he d be h Johanna Lindsey knows how to write an entertaining love story I laughed out loud several times Angel s reactions to Cassie s pet were amusing view spoiler A panther I went with it because the wild animal turned domesticated could also be a metaphor for Angel s ultimate taming by Cassie, being pretty wild himself hide spoiler I wasn t expecting to like Angel as much as I did His brief appearances in the preceding books combined with his shady background didn t make me think he d be hero material Well.I was wrong He was a great hero dangerous yet noble, tender yet tough, etc As for Cassie, she s sweet and strong willed exactly the way I like my heroines Her tendency to meddle, although well intentioned, causedtrouble than solutions initially but they all panned out in the end I liked seeing these two get together Poor Angel couldn t stay away from Cassie in spite of himself LOL Their romance was as fun and cute as they were

Spoiler WarningI do my best to label spoilers, but I m not perfect Please read at your own risk.Johanna Lindsey is probably one of theinfluential authors of true vintage romance novels Her work encompasses the bodice ripper tropes that were so trendy in the 1970 s and 1980 s, which may not sit well with newer romance readers I admit my feelings about Lindsey novels are ambivalent I ve read several of her historical romances, some I really liked and others I ve abhorred Lindsey is nothing if not adaptable and she has managed to sustain a lengthy writing career despite inconsistent quality in her works I picked up and read Angel because many of Lindsey s backlist novels are now available in ebook for 3.99 and I read so many positive reviews of Angel I felt I needed to check it out and make sure I hadn t missed an exceptionally good read My experience with this historical western romance is very mixed The first half read quickly and kept me very engaged I found Angel and Cassie very intriguing and mostly fun to know The secondary characters usually didn t disappoint, either The plot elements stretched pretty thin and beggared belief, but taken as a comfortable, relaxing popcorn read, I was still mostly entertained through the first half.In the second half, the love story plot imploded Angel seems to have fallen for Cassie, but there s no believable transition of his feelings from attraction to love Meanwhile, Cassie is afflicted with perpetual bad judgment and terrible decision making skills view spoiler I m unclear why it took so long for the two characters to admit they cared about each other and wanted to remain married I didn t perceive any serious impediment to the arrangement beyond each character believing the other didn t want it It seemed out of character for Cassie not to openly discuss it since she was so extroverted and open about everything else hide spoiler Angel deals with several obstacles reconciling with his family and rescuing Cassie from a vengeful criminal and he perseveresoften than not through coincidence and good luck I realize the novel would have been much larger if Lindsey portrayed Angel actually working for his victories, but things fell into place a bit too neatly for any real tension to occur The love scenes in the book aredesperate lonely than romantic always a turn off for me However, I enjoyed thesensuous language and limited description in the love scenes compared torecent romance and erotic romance works They were present, they made an impression, but they didn t take over the book nor were they exceptionally graphic or explicit The emotional tension is beautifully crafted and there s a lot of beautiful language and structure in this novel If the plot had beensubstantial, I d consider this a great book, but the plot and subplots were not meaty enough to sustain the novel s word count As it stands, I do see Angel as one of Lindsey s better novels and I understand its popularity Angel is definitely worth a look
