It has been a long while since I read a true pure historical romance without, immortal warriors and such. Let me just say this book reminded me of just why I fell in love with this genre way back when I was a teenager. Though at first, I was a bit confused at the beginning and wondered where that played into this book, it didn't take long to figure it out and enjoy this great read. Gaby, I loved her. She is a feisty wildcat and from the very start she gives Raphael problems, to say she is more than a handful is a understatement and that is what makes her so much fun. Raphael, I can see it now some of you might not like him and at first I wasn't so sure, but as I got to know him I knew there was more than just the broody, demanding man he is. And it takes Gaby to find that part of his heart he thought he had sealed off forever. What I loved about this book, is not only I could feel what the characters were feeling, but the fact you could feel the sparks between this couple from the very start. It was a pretty fast read. Only thing I see wrong with this book is that it ended. Would I recommend? If you love historical romance in it's truest form then get this book its well worth your time and money. Meanwhile I am going to go check out Donna Fletcher's other books. She definitely has gotten a new fan right here.

Untamed Fire is a fantastic, wonderfully written historical romance. Ms. Fletcher pens her characters full of feeling and very well developed. I actually had a hard time putting this book down, it is a great book! I recommend this to everyone who loves the romantic historical genre! This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

Untamed Fire blew me away there's nothing better than reading a great sexy romance book. Gaby Alvarado was my best friend from the beginning to end, never letting anyone treat her bad, and speaking her mind! Even if it meant it would get her in trouble. To be honest she actually reminded me of myself I stand up for myself no matter what. I loved her quirkiness, honesty and her confidence, all of them being amazing qualities. She wasn't afraid of saying what was on her mind! That was brave of her and it made you grow more and more fond of her throughout the book. Her relationship with Rafael reminded me a little bit about about Romeo and Juliet only the forbidden love part. They were from different societies and it was an obstacle that stopped them from wanting to act on they're feelings. Rafael was a strong male character, he put up with so much and never gave up. He was determined to get Gaby to follow his orders, even if more than half of the time she really didn't. I will say that although I really liked the characters I'm still a bit iffy about Rafael he was so darn sweet half of the time but he was really harsh most of the time I get that deep down he was hurting but I felt like he was always mad for no reason when he shouldn't have been. But all in all I love him. The author described everything right to the bone I absolutely enjoyed the writing style, especially because some of it was in spanish, it made the storyline seem way more breath taking. I felt so many emotions while reading it it seemed so real. I thought Rosalita was the sweetest person ever when she came into the story i thought oh no this girl is going to be a horrible person but i was wrong. I was left wanting more in the end, not only from Rosalita but also from Rafael and Gaby. I don't know what else to say about this book all i know is that i loved it way more than words can explain! Another book to add to my re-read list 5/5 stars.

As I began reading this book, I was somewhat intrigued. I had never read a book that featured Hispanic lovers. And indeed, it was a spicy romance from the beginning. As much as Gaby and Raphael butted the heads, it was evident that the sparks between them were more than anger. It was true love from the beginning even though he was a ranchero and she was a peasant. I found many of their early interactions quite interesting, to say the least. When the mystery portion of the book was introduced, I began to wonder how things were going to be tied together. But I found that there was not a lot of focus on the mystery, so I figured it would not be very important to the heart of the story. I discovered later that I was wrong. As the romance continued to evolve between Gaby and Raphael, my interest in them started to wane. While there were not detailed bedroom scenes (thank you), I began to get tired of them spending every evening in bed having hot, heavy sex. I realize that my morals are a little different--I grow tired of characters engaging in sex while not married. Notwithstanding, I found that my sense of reality was causing me to lose interest. Who has time to have unbridled sex every night and all night long without restraint? I found myself rolling my eyes at the relationship between the two characters. As the mystery became important and was solved, I found some parts of that a bit unrealistic, and by the end of the book, I was happy about it ended, but I did not care as much as I did in the beginning of the book. I am grateful that profanity was almost nonexistent in the book, and that made the reading of the book quite a pleasant experience. But when it comes to substance, this book missed the mark for me. If you like sugary-sweet romances with a spirited female, I can guarantee that you will like this book. I did not find the book overly historical, but for the true romantic, this book should be a dream. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
