Laural Merlington depicts city-bred twins Amanda and Marion with style and wit in this story of loss and first love. The twins are sent to live with Aunt Kathleen in 1870s' Texas after the sudden death of their father. Merlington portrays Amanda as beautiful, but spoiled and petulant. Her identical twin, Marion, is calm and compassionate. Desperate not to compete with Amanda, who hates her, Marion disguises her looks with horn-rimmed glasses and dowdy dresses. Merlington's Texas drawl, depicting cowboy Chad Kincaid, is outstanding.

A Man to. Call My Own. Chapter 1. MORTIMER LATON WAS BURIED that morning in Haverhill, Massachusetts, the town where he had been born and lived his whole life.

There's nothing quite like a good love story, especially when you're in the mood for one. A MAN TO CALL MY OWN was a quick read for me, but I enjoyed the romance, the setting and the characters as well. Fans of romance novels might find the story slightly predictable, but it's an entertaining addition to the genre.

A Man to Call My Own introduces us to a charismatic pair of twins, Amanda and Marian Laton, who, after the sudden death of their father, are sent to live with their aunt on a sprawling Texas ranch. As the twin sisters—one of whom is nasty, the other nice—both find themselves pursuing Chad Kinkaid, the cowboy son of a neighboring ranching family, Lindsey skillfully charts the intoxicating course of first love—and all of love's attendant twists and turns—that ends in one of the Laton twins winning the heart of a man she can call her own.

This is a distasteful medeival bondage read! It was painful to read, but finished it because I paid so much for it. I totally detested the supposed hero from beginning to end, and he could not be redeemed to me even after he became repentant in the end. The hero is a psychotic, misogynistic, childish, evil, sadistic, malicious, selfish bully, who mentally, emotionally abused the heroine to the point where it was outrageously disturbing. I felt sympathy for the clueless heroine until I realized what an idiotic, spineless, ignorant, masochistic weakling she was. I was very disgusted with both the h/h every time he raped her, and she liked it, and cringed each time he touched her. The total loathing of this despicable story was when they declared their love for one another after his last abuse of locking her in the dungeon again for a perceived wrong he felt she had dealt him, which she did not of course, because he took great pleasure in abusing, humiliating, and demeaning her in front of anyone who was present, and the heroine did nothing to communicate, nor set the matters straight because of her nauseating cowardice; but then again, he made it perfectly clear to her, under threat of a beating, that she was not to make excuses for what she had done to him, therefore, her cowardly ass did not dare speak up. I have enjoyed many books from this author, but this is third book I have read that contained rape, abuse, and bondage bordering on S&M, which leads me to believe that this author may be a person who fantasizes about this sort of perversion. I do not understand how someone with a clean mind would think that this sort of disgusting behavior from a hero toward a heroine makes for a romance story, I would expect this behavior from a villain instead of a hero. I would recommend this book to anyone with a twisted and perverted mind, and those who are interested in bondage, and S&M, but not to anyone who is interested in reading a true medeival romance.

*** Kind of spoilery***

My tears had barely dried before I was supposed to love the hero for realising his monumental stuff up and believe in his declarations of love. Prisoner of my Desire is one of those historical romances that I hate to love. The hero was an utter, utter bast*rd. He is cranky, rude and despicable. He has his reasons, but his resentments and hostilities at times made me want to get my own bloody whip out and chase him down…not that I have a whip mind you. I wanted the hero to suffer more…suck up to the heroine more…scream from the rooftops his love…more.

Rowena, poor bloody Rowena. Her brother Gilbert made my skin crawl. His lust filled gaze and the simpering need for Rowena were the stuff of nightmares. He wants her but has no hesitations in using her in his war against his archenemy Lord Fulkhurst. First of all, he beats Rowena’s mother to get her to marry a really, REALLY old Lord who promises Gilbert an army if Rowena marries him. Rowena, seeing her mum suffering, agrees to the horrible deed. The old Lord, wrinkled, blind and deaf is keen for the bedding but luckily keels over after the wedding but before the bedding. Gilbert, knowing that his plans won’t come to fruition if Rowena doesn’t produce an heir, finds a replacement (who looks like the old bugger) to impregnate her.

Bugger me…the serf who is shackled to the bed for Rowena to climb onto, mount, ride (rape) turns out to be none other than Gilbert’s enemy. Geez…what a stuff up.

Warrick, Lord Fulkhurst, was on the way to claim a new bride. He’s already had two that I think he frightened to death, and now Warrick is attempting to trap a third and hopefully beget a son. He already has two legit and one non-legit daughter’s (bastard is not a nice term), but a boy to carry on his legacy is what he desires. Unfortunately, his plans go haywire when he is attacked and kidnapped before he gets to his betrothed. Shackled to a bed, he finds out that his “job” is to be the stallion to an exquisite filly that he can’t deny he’s attracted to. Used and abused, he finally is unshackled, given clothes and sent on his way. Little did they know, he has a reputation for holding a grudge. Nobody gets away with taking from him, especially his dignity, freedom…and seed. He will have his revenge.

Poor Rowena, she is racked with guilt for taking advantage of the man, but little did she know who she was taking advantage of. When Lord Fulkhurst attacks her new home, Gilbert does a runner and tells her to beg for mercy. Once she is faced with Lord Fulkhurst, it didn’t matter what type of begging she did, he was going to be a wee bit cranky.

Prisoner of my Desire was a hard book to love, especially when you couldn’t help but despise the hero for most of the book. It’s an extremely steamy read that bordered on kinky, with its dubious consent and rough taking. You can’t help but feel throughout the whole book. Your feelings range from anger to tears, laughter to dread and blushing to gagging. To be honest, if Rowena had had to bed the old coot, I think I would have thrown up a little.

Prisoner of my Desire was a love story that does have a happy ending, but it was a journey that had some unpleasantness to it. I really enjoyed it and struggled to tear my eyes away from my kindle. I’m very glad that my Facebook friends introduced me to Johanna Lindsey and her sick and twisted love stories.

I've read this book before and still find it so satisfying. Warrick is kidnaped for Rowena, so they can procreate and her greedy step-brother can secure some land. Terrible people and terrible plots surround Rowena, but she maintains her compassion and pluky wit. She is never ignorant of the things happening around her, she couldn't do much to change her lot in life but she never whined about it. A lot of time is spent in Rowena's head, as she reasons everyone's behavior. Warrick was a product of his time, he was an arrogant and vengeful war lord, who was tired of all the fighting. People feared him but he was good man. I understood the characters and their motivations. I enjoyed Warrick and Rowena together. Their growing attraction and love was shown.
There was a lot of forced seduction, first Rowena rapes Warrick then Warrick rapes Rowena. In both instances pleasure was attained but rape is still rape. This could have been very angsty and depressing, but was entertaining and enjoyable.

I’m not going to address the issue of dubious/non-consent here. If this theme bothers you, skip this book, it contains a lot of it. This is an old skool historical romance with a hero who is pretty nasty to the heroine for the majority of the story (though of course, he has his reasons--or thinks he does). He ends up extremely remorseful and the the heroine does make him suffer :>). This happens to be a theme I enjoy. I’ve noticed it’s making a comeback of late, perhaps ala 50 Shades (which I have not read, though I plan to rent the movie). Anyway, it’s well done here and I was more satisfied with the outcome than most of Johanna Lindsey’s books (that I’ve read) and many of its ilk. The pacing was excellent, the emotions intense, the historical setting felt authentic (oh, how I enjoy this time period—ca. 1100), the heroine was neither meek nor stupid—but truly a victim of her own desire, the main characters’ (and others) motivations were clear. If you enjoy medieval romances with a captive theme, you’re gonna love this one.
