Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
There's little to recommend in Law's pointless and plotless romance set in 1858 San Francisco-not historical detail, not romance, not even adventure. Having given up hope of taking over the family horse farm in Kentucky, 23-year-old Angelina Winchester, makes a solo trek west in hopes of finding a financial backer to help her begin her own horse-breeding farm. While riding around the infamous Barbary Coast district, she encounters-and tries to save-an inept horseman, Jeremiah Johnston. J.J., a part owner of a financially unstable waterfront saloon, is a klutz with horses but a master with woman, or so he claims. He sees Angelina as a waif and offers her a job as a stable hand along with room and board; and Angelina, motivated by a need to prove herself, spends days mucking stalls with occasional stops to teach J.J. the art of horsemanship-starting with hoof cleaning. And that's about as interesting as it gets until two-thirds of the way through, when a tiny spark flares as a villainous developer comes on the scene. With J.J.'s finances getting bleaker, news of a horserace with a big-dollar first prize gives the characters hope. Would that it could give the reader some, but no such luck. (Feb.)

Meet the Author

A former science geek, Susan Kay Law turned to romance writing as a career because it was the perfect excuse to avoid housework and continue spending all her time doing what she really loved: reading and daydreaming. Also because she was really bad at sitting in a swamp at 5 A.M. in forty-degree weather and tracking bird behavior.

Winner of the Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart Award and a Waldenbooks Bestseller award, twice nominated for a RITA Award, she confesses that the biggest surprise of her career was when this small town Midwestern preacher's kid was named to New Woman magazine's list of "the steamiest writers of women's fiction." Her greatest joy, however, is spending her days thoroughly outnumbered by four of the best males on the planet — her husband and three sons. She currently lives in Minnesota, and plans to be a ski bum in her next life.

Really liked Journey Home which is sort of a prequel to Reckless Angel. I was really disappointed with Reckless Angel. It could have been a good sequel, but it was ummmm silly and not as well written.
