Led Astray

( 22 )

Overview


Jenny Fletcher had selflessly put her needs and dreams behind those of her fiancé, Hal, a man more committed to a cause than to her. On the eve of his departure for Central America, he gave Jenny what she wanted more than anything...one passionate night. It was his final gift. Cage Hendren was the opposite of his brother, Hal, in every way. The black sheep of the family, he was all rough edges, with a soft spot for just one thing: Jenny. But she'd always thought Cage was too wild and reckless...until he showed ...

Meet the Author

Sandra Brown

Sandra Brown is the author of numerous New York Times bestsellers—including most recently Smash Cut, Smoke Screen, Play Dirty, Ricochet, Chill Factor, White Hot, Hello, Darkness, The Crush, and Envy. She is the recipient of the 2008 Thriller Master Award from International Thriller Writers, Inc. She and her husband live in Arlington, Texas.

Biography

In 1979, Sandra Brown lost her job at a television program and decided to give writing a try. She bought an armful of romance novels and writing books, set up a typewriter on a card table and wrote her first novel. Harlequin passed but Dell bit, and Brown was off and writing, publishing her works under an assortment of pseudonyms.

From such modest beginnings, Brown has evolved into multimillion publishing empire of one, the CEO of her own literary brand; she towers over the landscape of romantic fiction. Brown has used her growing clout to insist her publishers drop the bosom-and-biceps covers and has added more intricate subplots, suspense, and even unhappy endings to her work. The result: A near-constant presence on The New York Times bestsellers list. In 1992, she had three on the list at the same time, joining that exclusive club of Stephen King, Tom Clancy, J. K. Rowling, and Danielle Steel.

Her work in the mainstream realm has taken her readers into The White House, where the president's newborn dies mysteriously; the oil fields and bedrooms of a Dallas-like family dynasty; and the sexual complications surrounding an investigation into an evangelist's murder. Such inventions have made her a distinct presence in a crowded genre.

"Brown is perhaps best known now for her longer novels of romantic suspense. The basic outline for these stories has passionate love, lust, and violence playing out against a background of unraveling secrets and skeletons jumping out of family closets," wrote Barbara E. Kemp in the book Twentieth-Century Romance & Historical Writers . Kemp also praises Brown's sharp dialogue and richly detailed characters. "However, her greatest key to success is probably that she invites her readers into a fantasy world of passion, intrigue, and danger," she wrote. "They too can face the moral and emotional dilemmas of the heroine, safe in the knowledge that justice and love will prevail."

Critics give her points for nimble storytelling but are cooler to her "serviceable prose," in the words of one Publishers Weekly reviewer. Still, when writing a crack page-turner, the plot's the thing. A 1992 New York Times review placed Brown among a group of a writers "who have mastered the art of the slow tease."

Staggeringly prolific, Brown found her writing pace ground to a halt when she was given a different assignment. A magazine had asked her for an autobiographical piece, and it took her months to complete. Her life in the suburbs, though personally fulfilling, was nonetheless blander than fiction. That may be why she dives into her fiction writing with such workhorse gusto. "I love being the bad guy," she told Publishers Weekly in 1995, "simply because I was always so responsible, so predictable growing up. I made straight A's and never got into any trouble, and I still impose those standards on myself. So writing is my chance to escape and become the sleaziest, scummiest role."

When she started writing, her goal was always to break out of the parameters of romance. After about 45 romances, the woman who counts Tennessee Williams and Taylor Caldwell among her influences told The New York Times that felt she had reached a plateau. In fact, she doesn't even look at her books as romances anymore. "I think of my books now as suspense novels, usually with a love story incorporated," she said. "They're absolutely a lot harder to write than romances. They take more plotting and real character development. Each book is a stretch for me, and I try something interesting each time that males will like as well as women."

Good To Know

  • "I hate to exercise and only do so because I absolutely must."

  • "I love to eat and my favorite foods are all bad for the body. Fried chicken and gravy, TexMex, red meat (hey, I'm from Texas!). My only saving grace is that I'm not that fond of sweets. Salty is my thing. Chocolate cake and ice cream I can skip. But a bag of Fritos. . ."

  • "It takes me a long time to go to sleep, usually because I read in bed and hate to put down the book. But when I do nod off, I'm a champion sleeper. I can easily do eight or nine hours a night."

  • "My worst "thing" is mean-spirited people. People who deliberately belittle or embarrass someone really irk me. The people I admire most are the ones who find something good about even the most undesirable individual. That was a quality my mother had, the one I hope most to emulate."

  • "I have a fear of gravity. Recently my whole family went to Belize. We had several adventures. We tubed a river through miles of cave, wearing head lamps so we'd have illumination. No problem. I scaled Mayan ruins. I rode horseback (on a monster named Al Capone) through the rain forest. No problem. But I couldn't zip line. Even though my five-year-old grandsons did it with glee, I just couldn't make that leap."

  • "I and my husband are huge fans of Jeopardy! We never miss it if we can help it. Does that make us complete dorks?"

      I Also Recommend:

      If you like your man strong and forceful...

      This is the man for you...a strong forceful man who loves without compromise and won't take no for an answer. The woman in the story loves her husband but his brother is the man who satisfies her. When her husband goes off to war and gets killed, it's the brother who fulfills her every need and cares for her in the way she deserves. Read this book and you will fall in love with him too. He is a man of his word and he will make you wish he was yours.

      Fantastic

      I loved this book so much. I thought it was brilliant. Cage is a great character, he's not perfect by any means and his flaws are visible for the readers. But his pursue of Jenny is funny, warm, romantic and great, specially after a main incident that changes both their lives, and i'm not talking about the death of Cage's brother and Jenny's fiancee. enough said, i think this information is in the back cover so it will not ruin the book for anyone. but i do highly reccomend it!

      Led Astray won't Lead You Astray

      I read this book in its original several years after it was published and loved it! This story is as great now as it was then. If you haven't read it yet or are new to Sandra Brown, I highly recommend reading this and any other Sandra Brown books.

      A SIGH PRODUCING LOVE STORY

      The word 'versatility' is given new meaning in the person of actress Karen Ziemba. Winner of the 2000 Tony Award for her performance in the musical 'Contact,' she has also captured the Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle Awards. Beginning with the now legendary 'A Chorus Line,' Broadway was introduced to Ms. Zeimba, and she hasn't slowed down since. In addition to numerous musicals she has been featured in TV programs and films. Fortunately, she also finds time to read audio books, and 'Led Astray' is one of her best. She adroitly plumbs the depths of a young woman's emotions as Jenny Fletcher finds herself torn between her feelings for two men. Jenny has given the ultimate support to her fiance's cause. On the night before he is to leave for Central America they couple as she has always believed they would. And then there is his brother who awakens desires in Jenny that she did not know she possessed. With whom does her future lie? Another sigh producing love story from Sandra Brown, and first rate voice performance by Karen Ziemba. - Gail Cooke

      Led Astray is the correct title.

      Anyone who buys this hardcover book thinking they are getting a 'new' story will certainly be LED ASTRAY. This is a great book but only if you are reading it for the first time. I still have the original paperback book published in 1985.

      Very Romantic

      After 'Fanta C' I started reading more Sandra Brown because that was such a great romance novel. I have enjoyed her books ever since, but the books never quite lived up that first one I read - until now. Brown has a way of writing romance realisticly, as it really would happen. The characters are funny and real, while the romance is right on target. Her books are a little more tame that I prefer, but they definitely get the imagination started.

      Reprint

      If you have trouble remembering what you read, you can get caught in the reprint trick. This Hardback is a reprint and you would be better off saving money and buying a used or new copy of the original paperback. Unless you are collecting hardbacks, then this is a waste of money. However, the story was a great one, but not worth the hardback price.

      Outstanding

      This is the first book that I have read by Sandra Brown and I really enjoyed it. The romance was great and appealing and characters well defined. I am looking for other Sandra Brown books to read.

      SAVED BY THE LIBRARY

      Before I ordered the 'new' Sandra Brown book, I checked our library's online catalog and found they had several copies of this book - from 1985! Glad I saved my money for a truly new book.

      'New'? My ass!

      I got this promising email, indicating a new Sandra Brown book is coming out. Lo and behold, it is a book I have had on my shelf since 1985! We're talking 20 years old, people! Plot is formulaic; if you like her stuff, you'll like this. If you're looking for something 'new,' wait until something that actually IS new comes along.

      Not Happy

      I am getting tired of needing to check a book over to make sure it is not a hardback version of some old book! There are certain authors I hesitate to order via the internet just for this reason. For those of us who read a lot this can be very frustrating and is happening a lot with Sandra Brown as well as others. Haven't seen a new book from her in ages.

      *Lovely absolutely Lovely!*

      This story was so touching. I wish i could trade places with Jenny. Cage, is such a sensual and loving man. This one i took to heart. I read it once and a while when i want a romantic quick-fix. I'm addicted to these novels and i can't imagine any better punishment.
