    My First Historical Romance Novel

    This was actually my first historical romance novel. The only reason that I read,love and worship historical romance novels to this day is because of this novel. The first book I read by Michele Jaffe was Bad girl my friend let me borrow it and I loved it! I recomend that everyone read that book, but anyways back to this book. I didn't know it was a historical romance because the last book I read by her was by no means historical! Anyways it took me by surprise and I really enjoyed the plot and love scenes. I think it is kind of naughty how he confined her to his house. because he believes she is the murderer and has to stay imprisoned there under his rules until she can prove her innocence. Of course they are going to get down and dirty if they have to live with each other. I was reading the other reviews and I could not stop laughing about the person who said that Michele needs to get a thesaurus HAHA she does use nub alot LMAO! But the love scenes are hot! I personally like Water nymphe better but this book was good too. Water Nymphe was cuter though. Michele Jaffe likes to keep her women confined so they are helpless and have no where to turn to but the man who is god awful sexy and is going to take away her innocence..... and rub her nub HAHA! Ok I'm done, I have read numerous of other romance novels since this one and I can't really remember the whole story its been a long time ago but I really like this story, except how the guys is like I believe her but no she lied to me again but I can almost believe her but NO she has deceived me once again, lets do it anyways. Read the book Michele Jaffe is a good writer Dagnabit!

    The Best Ever

    Once you start reading the Stargazer you will never want to put the book down it takes you in to the story and you will always wonder what happens next. Those who say it a bad book dont know what they're talking about.

    AWFUL!

    This is, by far, one of the most poorly written novels to ever hit the shelves, and coming from someone whose thesis was about cheesy romance novels, that's saying a lot. The characters are incredibly 1 dimensional, the story is packed with cliches, and the story dragged on and on relentlessly. Lets put it this way, there are way more Silhouette & Harlequin romances that are better written than this.

    Terrible

    This book was awful. Seriously. The plot was so predictable I figured out whodunnit in the first chapter. Had the characters been anything other that suspicious then horny, maybe they'd have been interesting, but suspicious and horny were about it. Oh, sometimes they were angry, but not as often as the other two. Even the villain was boring! I can forgive boring plots if the characters are interesting, but alas, Ian and Bianca might have been, had they shown more that those three emotions. Sure, the sex scenes were OK, but repeated the same words and phrases over and over, particularly 'nub' and 'organ.' Break out the thesaurus once in a while, please!

    Wonderful!

    I stumbled across this book one morning and spent the rest of it reading it! I loved every page and the fact that it was set in Italy made it that much better. Fast paced, steamy love scenes and a mystery to boot. I have now devoured all four of the Arboretti novels and am anxiously awaiting the next installment. I hope Ms. Jaffe doesn't keep us waiting too long!

    Amazingly attracting

    I could not put the book down. Great historical mystery with wonderful racey love scenes. Jaffe has a way with her description of the setting right down to the fabrics in the clothes worn in those days.

    MY GOD!

    It was absolutely the most wonderful book I have ever read! It moves you to tears and laughter. For her first book it was VERY well written and deserved all the glory it's bound to get. The characters were all very amusing and witty and not to mention Ian who makes the book sizzle with his sensual character.

    Fantastic book!

    I was enchanted with The Stargazer. I read it over a year ago while on vacation in Hawaii, and it was a perfect book! I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good historical romance... Bianca's a doll. Jaffe's second book, The Water Nymph, is equally fantastic, if not more so. A must have for any book collection!

    DUMB, DUMBER, DUMBEST

    This was right up there when it comes to dumb. Dumb story line,dumb guy, dumb girl. BUT THE BOOK IS SAVED by the extremely steamy and erotic love scenes. My husband and I enjoyed them TOGETHER. I recommend having your main squeeze close by when you read this book. We are anxious to read her newest book - Water Nymph.
