Indiscretions 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

Having read all of Donna Hill's books and with her being one of my all time favorite authors, I have to say I was very disappointed with this book. Too many people were involved in the story, the main characters had too many complications in their relationship, the passion was not heart felt and midway through I lost all interest in the ending. I am looking forward to her next book as my disappointment in indiscretions does not change my love of Donna and her books. Jan.

The description on the back of the book doesn't even begin to explain this complex, yet, intriguing tale that Mrs. Donna Hill has so elegantly spun for our enjoyment. All it states is the following: 'Khendra Phillips is at the height of her legal career when the handsome, smooth-talking attorney Sean Michaels bursts onto the scene and threatens to capture not only her love but her career in the legal field as well. Khendra's heartbroken past reminds her how much love can hurt and betray. Can she combat both the demons that plague her heart as well as the ensuing bitterness toward the man who shattered her dreams?'~~~~~~~With so little to go on, I must admit I brought the book because of the catchy title and the handsome looking fella on the front cover.~~~~~~~That being said I was not disappointed in my pick! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and could not put it down from the moment I picked it up. I was up until 3:30 a.m. reading it. Well worth the bags under my eyes! The characters were definitely memorable. And the storyline flowed effortlessly. There were a few typos, but it didn't hinder the flow of the story. The instant heat and passion between Khendra and Sean was definitely sizzlin'. Sean was quite the irresistible and relentless charmer and you couldn't help but fall victim to all his sweet, smooth talking ways. And then, you couldn't help but despise him when you felt the sting of his betrayal and how he 'played' Khendra...or did he?!!!! This story had so many exciting twists and turns I couldn't help but get caught up in what could only be described as an AMAZINGLY thrilling ride of romance and mystery. KUDOS to you, Mrs. Hill!
