    One thought on “Compromised Hearts”

    1. Si superas ese estrepitoso comienzo, el libro no es malo Obviamente tienes que ser fuerte e ignorar que el protagonista se comport como un est pido bastardo al pedirle que se acostara con l todo el camino a cambio de su seguridad Y que ella tuviera que aceptar porque era una tremenda estupidez conservarse virgen si los indios iban a matarla de todas formas Y el hecho de que ella aceptara antes de que l pudiera pudiera retirar la oferta y brindarle seguridad de todas formas M s all de eso, la nov [...]

    2. 2 1 2 stars I m not quite sure I liked this book or not I selected it for its publication date, needing to complete a reading challenge And I love really good bodice rippers I thought I had a winner.The story revolves around former soldier and scout Cloud Ryder, whose cheese tastic name and reputation with the ladies added humorous elements to the story I m not quite sure the author intended this, but perhaps Cloud rescues proper Boston cr me Emily, who has set out west to find her brother Harpe [...]

    4. I ve only read a few of Hannah Howell s books and so far they ve been pretty good I really liked this book but I would give it 3 1 2 if I could Cloud H is finally heading home to his land, he s thinking that it s time to set down some roots, build a home and be close to his family On his way he can t believe what he finds, a young woman just strolling through the most dangerous Indian territory with her best Sunday bonnet, parasol and a small child.Emily h and Thorton little boy are the only sur [...]

    5. Unfinished, this book is dismal and I wonder at the amount of stars it s received and the relatively high rating.Two dimensional characters, hardly any development, the love story centres around badly written sex scenes and badly written prose I can comfortably say that this novel wasn t worth checking out from the library.

    6. Don t let the updated cover fool you It s a standard, old fashioned bodice ripper It s entertaining and if you like bodice rippers you ll enjoy this It s complete with damsels being rescued, vengefull ex mistesses and scorned suiters I read the ebook version and it s badly edited Lots of typos so I would recommend getting the print version.

    7. I think 2.5 stars would be a appropriate rating I finished the book and I liked some parts, but, the whole, it was kind of annoyed read I really wanted a mindless book and this was it Obnoxious male protagonist Beast and clueless, but faithful female protagonist Beauty in the American West The child at the beginning of the book became a total plot moppet toward the end He almost disappeared when the other children came into the picture Not to mention Thornton and Thor Seriously It was like the [...]

    11. Hannah Howell is my favorite historical romance authors I love her Scottish Highland books This is the first book that I ve read of Ms Howell s set in the American West And those are one of my favorite types of historical romances to read It was kind of nice to take a break in reading the other historical romances that she writes As much as I love the Scottish Highland novels, they have become a bit the same The heroines has the same physical descriptions, some of the plots are similar, etc I ll [...]

    12.

    13. It was always hard to swallow the rake to redeemed husband plot line This is not my favorite type of story, unless we re talking about Snape in the Harry Potter series Back to this Compromised Hearts with Cloud Ryder and his lovely Boston bred lady Emily I thought that these people could walk out of my kindle because these were three dimensional characters with complex motivations and desires How do you trust someone to love you Marriage was no guarantee then or now, so I relate to the struggle [...]

    14. Just finished reading this for a second time within the last 6 months another I forgot to review and wanted to refresh my memory I think this is one of the best western novels I ve read in a very long time DO NOT understand the couple of one star ratings AT ALL The characters had LOTS of depth, they were funny, strong, and in Emily s case, sensitive as well I enjoyed the entire book, was never bored, and would definitely read it again and recommend it to anyone who likes historical western roman [...]

    15. I think I ve stated in another review that I love Hannah Howell, so four stars should be no surprise It s not 5 because I don t know why, exactly I really enjoyed the book, but it wasn t ahh maay zing There is an interesting side effect to Howell s bevy of virtuous heroines I feel like a harlot by comparison But then, at nearly 36 and with a divorce behind me, I don t think anyone expects me to possess such virtues.Not that I expect romance novels to have any resemblance to reality If that were [...]

    16.

    17. While I did enjoy this novel, it annoyed me a little that the characters had to overcome one dilemma after another in order to get their happy ending I know that this was an adventure type romance novel Maybe I have not read enough of this type Reading, I could not help but wonder what bad thing was going to happen next to them.

    18. I rather liked it It wasnt the best written novel I have ever read, but several parts had me laughing out loud You also got the sense it didnt take itself as seriously as most romance novels, which I found refreshing I wish it had been longer though, alot is crammed into a small amount of pages.

    19. Awful, just awful The writing was so bad and pacing on everything was just off There was no characterization and it just seems like a rushed, trite and sloppy mess with little to no rationale for characters actions I kept skimming and skipping hoping that things would get better but should have known better I m just glad I got it at the library rather than purchasing it.

    20. I throughly enjoyed this story The shining moments were the interactions between the hero heroine Some of the negative reviews I ve read have criticized how the hero manipulated the heroine in the beginning of the story, I can see why that would bother some but once you get past that there is a really good story here Very good western historical.

    21. I m feeling a bit guilty that I love this book so much Cloud Ryder is such an arrogant ass But it was great to reread again I m glad this is one of the few books that I ve kept through many moves.

    22. I haven t read Hannah Howell before, but this book kept you interested Emily s adventures showed her to be a determined female capable of surviving in the West With the obstacles she faced she still won in the end.

    23. Too much humping from the first howdy with too little emotions and character development Abandoned at 60%.
