This is one of the first books Linda Howard wrote and it is dated in that our thoughts and feelings were different 30 years ago. It is still a great read and the stubbornness of both of the main characters is telling in their choices of careers. The second couple are interesting also in that 30years ago. you didn't give up easily when things went sour. Enjoy this read. Linda Howard has been my very favorite author for over thirty years.

Physiotherapist Dione helps Blake to walk again, after an accident, and helps him to rebuild his mind as well as his legs. By accomplishing that, she seems to have unleashed an overbearing, jealous tyrant, who rides roughshod over her feelings, as she helplessly falls in love with him. I'd like to have seen the story from Blake's viewpoint, though, there were snatches, here and there. Uneven and unsatisfying

I LOVE this romance story. Linda Howard does a wounded hero and scarred heroine perfectly. Blake is physically wounded and has given up the will to live. Dione, his physical therapist, is emotionally scarred but is a fighter who never gives up. Together these to fight until they nearly kill each other all the while falling in love and forming an amazing unbreakable bond neither has ever had before.The sexual tension is great and when they finally get together you nearly weep for them because it's highly emotional. When Blake stands for the first time in two years and he breaks down and cries you have to cry with him. He was such a strong, adventurous man who almost lost everything, but Dione brought him back and won his heart. And Blake not only won Dione's heart, but also her trust- something she's never fully given another human being in her life because of her abused past.A griping, touching and oh so romantic love story. A great fast read that I highly recommend.

This character-driven story is funny, sexy and emotional! I listened to the audio of COME LIE WITH ME by Linda Howard and read by Lesa Lockford. I’ve recently discovered Linda Howard’s books and am very glad that I have! You should know that this particular character-driven story was originally published in the early 1980s and has only become available in audio this year. Parts of the story feel dated, but it is still quite relevant and entertaining. As an example, it occurs when phones were all landlines. To fully relish the tale, you will also need to accept some old-fashioned aspects of relationships a few decades ago. We’ve come a long way! I had no issue with doing so, though I admit to thinking more than once that I’m glad that times have changed. COME LIE WITH ME is the story of Blake Remington, a successful businessman who became paralyzed after a mountain climbing accident, and Dione Kelly, a physical therapist hired by the family as a last-ditch effort to save Blake. It has been two years since Blake’s accident when Dione is hired to work with him. Blake is bitter, frustrated and angry at everyone and everything. He has given up his will to live and to say he is very unhappy when Dione walks into his life is a major understatement. On the other hand, Dione is determined to bring Blake back from the brink of death come hell or high water. Their story renders a lot of insight into both characters. Suffice to say, Blake is physically impaired; Dione is emotionally impaired from both childhood and marital abuse. Each is critical to the other’s healing journey. Their interactions are powerful, passionate, priceless and provocative. COME LIE WITH ME is performed by Lesa Lockford. This is the third audio I’ve picked up pairing Lesa with Linda Howard and their combo is a good one. Lesa’s voice is clear and her characters’ voices sound genuine. She differentiates between the characters to where I can easily discern who is speaking from Lesa’s voice alone. The end product is polished and well-done. I look forward to hearing more of Lesa’s productions in the future. I really enjoyed the story and the characters. It’s funny, sexy, and emotional. There were plenty of substantial obstacles to these two finding their happy-ever-after – and, at times, their future appeared to be bleak indeed. COME LIE WITH ME is the story of their journey to wholeness and happiness. It’s well-worth delving into. My full review is published at Reading Between The Wines Book Club. Please check it out there!

Linda Howard sets a touching plot, developed, in depth characters, cohesive dialoge, steamy passion scenes and a little of lifes tragedies and triumphs...all this in an overall great tale. It could be considered a short story because it's a little over 100 pages long but I truly think it's worth while for a nice romance. It wont hurt to try out this Howard book, and in the end you can reccommend or warn people in a review/rating.
