    I LOVE that you have the covers up instead of a list, that’s great! I’m trying to remember which one The Gift is – I read a bunch of Garwoods one summer years and years ago, but I’m not certain if this was one of them. I do remember The Bride, since the wedding scene was so funny. Great list!

    Hey Kate,

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Here’s the blurb for the book by Garwood:

    A child bride, Sara Winchester had grown into a winsome beauty, joyfully anticipating the day when her husband Nathan, Marquess of St. James, would return to claim her heart at last. Charmingly innocent, she dismissed the ancient feud that divided Nathan’s family from her own…and she was totally unaware of his past exploits as the notorious pirate, Pagan. The man who now stood before her was perplexing, arrogant and powerfully handsome…a warrior-gentleman whose gentle touch aroused her to the wildest, deepest pleasures of love.

    Nathan had never bared his soul to any woman, but he was soon utterly beguiled and exasperated by Sara’s sweet, defiant ways. Aboard his ship, The Seahawk, she was brave, imperious and determined to win his heart completely — yet upon their return to England, her love would be sorely tested as a vile conspiracy tried to tear them apart. With their future at stake, they would discover the true destiny of their passion…for all time!

    Wow, that doesn’t sound familiar to me at all…maybe I missed it in my summer o’Garwood. Something else to add to my tbr, then.

    Kate — maybe you did. THE GIFT was really great.

    Dionne — It’s GENTLE ROGUE that got me reading romance. If it weren’t for that, I would’ve remained a romance snob. :)

    I read the book list And I realised that my frist romance novel was ‘Shanna’ and Lindsey’s ‘Malory’ series. Not included the classics like AUSTEN and others.
