Comments Come Love a Stranger

  • Christine

    Usually a one-star review means I didn't finish a book, but for some reason I did trudge through to the end of this one. I think I was drawn by the potential, even though I knew early on that because of the rigid HEA structure of a romance novel, that potential could never be fulfilled. Not that I don't appreciate a good HEA, but there are some stories that can't be told that way, and this was one of them.It was utterly unbelievable, even if you forgive it for using the trite combination of conv [...]

    Ridiculousness. I don't mind an OTT HR, even one with (view spoiler)[a drowned wife, her amnesiac twin, a burning asylum, and a clueless, bigamist hero (hide spoiler)]as long as I can enjoy the writing. I don't remember Woodiwiss'style in The Wolf and the Dove being so insufferably flowery and slower than a snail's pace. Her attempt at writing a gothic drama? Missed her humor and straightforward prose. Not my cuppa. DNF.

    Reviewed for THC ReviewsCome Love a Stranger was a re-read for me, and although I did correctly remember the heroine's identity, there was little else about the story that I could recall. Although it didn't quite reach the heights of perfection for me, it was still a very good read, about as good as I remembered it being over fifteen years ago. I've only read a few of Kathleen Woodiwiss' books, the last one being about four years ago, which was before I started reviewing and really analyzing how [...]

  • Laura

    I couldn't get into this one. I enjoy some of Woodiwiss's books, but this one was sobleh. It's dull, the characters are the most boring stock 1-dimensional archetypes you can imagine, and nothing happens. This is to say nothing of the racism, which became more and more difficult to stomach. Woodiwiss had this tendency to refer to black characters as simply "the black." She never says black MAN or black WOMAN; she never even refers to them as people! She did this same thing quite a bit in Ashes i [...]

  • Aude

    This book has a problem. Bear with me for a moment:The quiet peace of the moonlit river was broken by the hushed murmur of voices and the steady pulsing of pistons in a powerful engine.The rushing burble of water beneath a stout hull softly harmonized with the long sighs of these monster steam pistons and the chugging splash of water under the paddle wheelThere a frigging adjective. before. every. noun.Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against adjectives per se.I just dislike being told [...]

  • Kathrynn

    One of the better books by this author. Her earlier books were all wonderful. I don't know what happened to her later books, but I didn't care for most of them. Come Love a Stranger is a wonderful romance. If you have not read it and like romance, I highly recommend it. Be sure to check out this author's Shanna, too.

    Great story by a favorite author.

  • Lierin

    This is the first romance novel I ever read, back when I was like 11? 12? Also, incidentally the one my name came from. I absolutely adore this book. I've come to'outgrow'e writings of Kathleen E. Woodiwiss- she was someone I read as a young teen- and as I have grown so have my tastesbut I can't pretend Woodiwiss hasn't set my bar high. Extremely high for romance and I find I can't look at the genre since. Every romance novel I pick up 'yeah, no, this isn't Woodiwiss.' I can FEEL the lack. I par [...]

  • Serena Miles

    Este libro ha sido un tanto extraño me ha resultado enredoso y raro, para luego tener un final para mi opinion, muy poco creible5/10

  • Jessica

    what a fantastic book. kudos to woodiwiss for hitting another one out of the park. if nora roberts is the queen of contemporary romances woodiwiss certainly holds the title for historical ones. she always manages to find the sweet spot in dialogue between modern and historically accurate speech giving it the proper tone without being hard to read. her plots are always well thought out gripping and brilliantly executed. the characters as always are extremely endearing or revolting (villains) and [...]

  • Kristi Hudecek-Ashwill

    I loved this book. It was exciting, action-packed, mysterious and romantic and you the mystery doesn't get solved until the very end.Is she Lieren or Lenore? I thought I had it all figured out before I hit the last hundred pages but no such luck. I totally missed the whole thing. I'm not good at figuring out mysteries anyway but I really did think I had this one nailed. Nah. The ending was a total surprise to me.The story was filled with twists and turns and even a few, "No ways" and I thoroughl [...]

  • Sylvia

    Esta historia desde el inicio me mantuvo con el suspenso de quién era la chica: Lierin o Lenore, aunque estaba casi convencida de que era Lierin, estaba como Ashton :)Muy buen desenvolvimiento de todo el trama, Kathleen me mantuvo encantada con la historia y personalidad de cada uno de los personajes. Lo único de lo que me quejo es que me esperaba un poco más en el final.Muy recomendable, y más si te gustan los libros de época

  • Pamela(AllHoney)

    Another good story by Ms Woodiwiss. Not my favorite but one I still keep on my keeper shelf to enjoy again and again. Ashton Wingate loses his wife three years before and then one day his carriage collides with a woman on horseback who looks like his lost wife, Lierin. But there is another man who claims that she is not Lierin but Lenore.

  • Nihann~

    4,5 hatta 4,75 :)Full 5 yıldız olmama sebebi, bir resamın masterpiece'ini yaparken boyasının bitmesi ve resminin yarım kalması gibi bir sonu olması kitabın.(?!?)Ama gene de: Pardon daa Kathleen E. Woodwiss yani boru değil.

  • Julie

    absolutely fabulous a eondetful read have read about 20 times just love it

  • Alice Chimera

    Ashton Wingate trova sulla riva del Mississipi una donna svenuta e senza memoria, ma il suo volto lo riconoscerebbe tra mille: lei è sua moglie che credeva scomparsa. La povera smemorata però non è convinta delle parole del suo salvatore e come se non bastasse un misterioso Malcolm Sinclair dichiara di essere il vero marito della donna che sarebbe appunto la gemella della defunta moglie di Ashton.La Woodwiss è una maestra del romance storico, inutile dire che si rimane rapiti dai personaggi [...]

  • Yada Lopez

    Realmente disfruté de este libro, aun cuando me tomó tanto tiempo terminarlo. La lectura en tercera persona no es lo mío, pero esta logró atraparme y adentrarme ena historia. ¡Definitivamente fue una montaña rusa de emociones!

  • Debra

    An entertaining historical romance, much like those I read 30 years ago. The Wolf and the Dove is, in my opinion, Woodiwiss's best work. She and Lavyle Spencer are my favorites of this genre

  • FeelNotFight

    I read it 6-8 year ago(2-3 gimnazjum/secondary school) and from what I remember I didn't loved it.

  • Elaine

    This is the second time I have read this book, and love it even more. I wish she was still alive to write more wonderful books.

  • Bailey Peyton

    Oh my god!!! I want to give this ZERO count 'em, ZERO stars!!!! This read more like a soap opera than a romance novel. I know romance novels aren't exactly of the highest caliber, but this one was atrocious. Ashton was a weak romantic hero on his good days, but I give him a pass for treating his workers with respect. I could never understand why he didn't just order the ever present Woodiwiss vixen, Marelda, out of his house (since his aunts are always proclaiming how strong willed he is). The w [...]

    I always have more then one book on the go. I read this one years ago and recently discovered it again and started to read itrgetting until I got into it that I had read it some years ago--yes, I have many books around here.I started to read it, but I have a tendency to want to read everything and if I visit the library it is worselol.at is when I picked up the other two books I have listed by Kathleen E. Woodwiss. I'll share some detail of Come Love a Stranger and I'll be back when I finish it. [...]

  • Korynn

    For those of you who adore romance about unmarried folk this is not the book for you. There are no moments of virginity nearly torn asunder until the final glorious consummation. We are given a protagonist in a woman without a name, who cannot remember anything(a old fiction standby). We have a man who is only too happy to name her his lost wife. They are, of course, both stunningly gorgeous people and are attracted to each other. But, the twist is, there is another man who is only to happy to n [...]

  • Joshua

    Expected more after reading The Flame and the Flower. Sad to say I was disappointed with this.The reason I like Woodiwiss is because unlike a lot of authors in the romance genre, she can actually write.You can tell she's been inspired by classics like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights, she writes plot driven and descriptive stories. She's been a pioneer for historical romance and with good reason.Come Love a Stranger had an amazing premise, but it just didn't live up to its potential.There were ra [...]

    the start was very promising but then the book got pretty boring n confusing wid all the characters involved ! what i really like abt the book was ashton n his firm conviction dat the woman before him was indeed his wife. he accepted her though he had found her in a nightgown on the streets after a small accident. this was compromising 4her, she cud be a fake. he cud easily have misjudged her or delivered her 2 the madhouse but he did not. he was devoted 2 lierin n i was glad at the end dat she [...]
