Hang on to your hats and prepare for an erotic journey with two lonely people who seem to soothe something in each other. Kate Pearce realistically presents their individual struggles with career paths. The internal conflicts are ones I was able to empathize with and cheered them on to a quick resolution of their problems. The erotic journey to love is explicitly portrayed and not for the faint of heart, with plenty of variation and intensity. The secondary cast is realistic and did not detract from the main focus of the story. Jay is a hero many women would love to call their own, while Helen is a strong and independent heroine who finds the love and acceptance she craves in a man who is quite her opposite. ROPING THE WIND is sure to be a hit with fans of sultry romance.
