I have loved most of the Woodiwiss books, but this one is at the very bottom of the list. It is a continuation of another story I haven't read, so I was left feeling like I was missing something. Then the characters have a love scene in the first chapter, which makes the book feel like porn. Woodiwiss usually builds up the story, characters, and suspense/tension, making for an enjoyable read. She failed on this one.

I have read just about all woodwiss' books and I have to say that this takes the cake for being the worst. The characters are so poorly developed...., the story bores you to tears. I actually fell asleep reading this book, and I'm a person who normally misses sleep to stay up and read. I would not recommend this book to anybody. Woodwiss is clearly under par.

It seemed to me the authoress had a bigger story in mind for Jeffrey Burmingham but for unknown reason decided to rush through it. Too bad because I was fond of Brandon's brother in the first book. I would profure the story to start when they first meet rather than after marriage. I wish the story had more insight into Jeff,s thouhts and most of the love making parts were closer to porn than the celebrations of union KW usually masters. I did like the male friends & comraderie they sharred + thier back stories, that was nice.

This book is so slow and boring. Not like her usual writting. You have to get half way through the book for it start to get somewhat interesting. Very disappointed. Not one of her better books.

I read The Flame & the Flower and wanted to continue the family saga. After reading the reviews of this book I found the background for this book were two short stories in Three Weddings and A Kiss also Marred at Midnight. I chose to read only "A Kiss" and was able to figure out through the narrative exactly what was going on. I enjoyed it very much. Loved Jeff, but Raelynn was not the most memorable or brightest female of the Woodiss books.but since she is a teenager you have to give her a break.. It was a good love story which is what we all are following with the Birmingham men.

Since I have been reading and enjoying Woodiwiss' books for nearly twenty-five years, I fully expected to enjoy this one as well. Where usually I can't put her books down, I couldn't seem to pick this one up, and it took me several months to finish it. The stilted dialogue and unusually high rate of verbiage made me wonder more than once whether I was really reading a Woodiwiss book. I respect her as a writer too much to actually say the book sucked, but I was certainly underwhelmed by this one.

I enjoyed this book as I do all of Woodiwiss's books but why did she call this a sequel when it is actually a prequel. The novel before this one, ' The Elusive Flame' takes place after 'A season Beyond a Kiss'. Beau Birbingham is just a child in this novel. While he was romancing Cerynise Kendall one book ago. I would have liked them to be in chronological order.

In 1803 Charleston, Jeff and Raelynn Birmingham seem happily married in spite of machinations from her Uncle Cooper and an odious wannabe lover Gustav Fridrich. However, she begins to doubt her husband¿s faithfulness when a teenager Nell claims he impregnated her. He vehemently denies her charges. After Nell gives birth, she again accuses Jeff of being the father. Soon after that, Raelynn finds Jeff holding a bloody knife while Nell lies nearby dead.

Raelynn believes Jeff killed Nell even though he denies it. She runs away, but he follows and rescues her from becoming lost in the swamp. They separate, but over time she misses her beloved spouse and begins to conclude that he could never kill in cold blood. However, someone did in the hope of setting up Jeff to take the fall and either the same assailant or another wants Raelynn dead too.

A SEASON BEYOND A KISS, the long awaited sequel to the classic THE FLAME AND THE FLOWER, is an interesting historical romantic intrigue that fans of Kathleen E. Woodiwiss will enjoy. The story line is filled with tension and plenty of action. The tale starts off a bit slow, but once the plot picks up speed it never slows down until the climax. Raelynn¿s behavior seems offbeat and inappropriate especially her attitude towards the heroic Jeff. Readers will love the lead male character and hiss at the various villains. Though no flaming flower, A SEASON BEYOND A KISS is an enjoyable novel that can stand-alone.

If I'm going to read a romance novel. Kathleen's books are on my list. When I want to relax and escape into a world of romance, her books are perfect. The first I every read was The Wolf and The Dove and I've been a fan ever since.
